Irish Fixes and Smiles

Posted: January 17, 2013 in Mission

IrishflushotsSo many people are sick these days, flu is everywhere. Myself, I had a flu shot months ago. Now, I wish I had remembered my Irish heritage and had an Irish flu shot, or two, or three…

IrishExerciseNow when it comes to exercise, I do not propose this Irish to approach burning calories.

Primal, Thank You to all who contributed your 2-cents to my post yesterday, Primal or Not, I will post again on the topic when I have finished the book, likely this weekend. Is it wrong that I had pasta for dinner last might before reading on? If so, I’ll make up for it tonight as smoked sausage is on the menu.

Today, I feel that my foot is on the mend; I haven’t mentioned that I’ve had a foot thats been in some agony. Anyhow, I hope that the pain in it is gone by end of week so I can get in some serious walking this Saturday. Has to be Saturday, because on Sunday the temperature here is suppose to drop into the near-misery range.

Blogs, I got to about half of the 40’ish blogs I like to stalk yesterday; still trying to reconnect with all now that I am back from vacation and getting my head back into healthy thoughts. I’ll get to all by end of week, promise!


To Primal or Not

I’m reading, I’m considering, I’m wondering… Wondering what your thoughts are to this approach to eating and exercise?

Please do share!

Attitude Attack

Posted: January 14, 2013 in Mission

attitudeBack to reality, vacation is over.

Back to working to get healthy, that battle has yet to be won.

Attitude is what makes anything wanted a reality.

My attitude during vacation was phenomenal, thus I had an amazing vacation with my wife.

Achieving the healthy state I desire is as certain as my choosing to adopt an equally phenomenal attitude towards my health.

So, I’m doing just that…

I’m choosing to have an Attitude Attack versus a heart attack, stroke, or bout of doubt.

Today, my attitude requires us to go to the grocery store as the kids ate us out of food while away; a good thing. Now we get to restock with healthier options. Just in time too, I am really craving a Mickey Magic Cookie. A sure sign I had one, or three, too many last week.

Today, my attitude will see me eat fresh and real food at the cafe for lunch. Another hunk of cheese covered meat between some sort of bread with a side of carbo-nonsense is not on the menu today!

Today, I will get healthier!

Anyone else for an Attitude Attack?

Home Has Happened

Saturday was a day of travel home, but not before a final breakfast with good-friends…

My gorgeous Disney-addicted wife needed a dose of reality to calm her before the flight home, she chose a McRib to hit the spot…

And we are home, the ‘real’ Animal Kingdom…

A day to get the head back in the game before resuming everyday pleasures such as, gee, I forgot what to do. Hmm, maybe I should’ve stayed on vacation.

Finishing with Eeyore Style

Posted: January 11, 2013 in Miscellaneous

Early, 5:15 am early we’re in our corral for the Disney 5k, early doesn’t even fit when describing early on a vacation day…

Off and running, well, waddling is a more appropriate reference for my style…

How about this little girl, a stranger, encouraging my wife to carry on…

It worked, she made it to the finish line!

We both did, felt good. And as you can see I did it in eeyore-style!

It’s been a great vacation, but it is almost over. We get one last morning at the Magic Kingdom on Saturday and then it’s to the airport and homeward bound.

Have a great weekend!

Vacation & 5-What?

Her idea of a reason to go on vacation…

Oh look, they had a bib waiting for me…

Never seen so many protein bars in one place…

After getting checked in for tomorrows 5K I was thinking go find Eeyore, but she was thinking more shopping…

So yeah, our fun in the sun will include some sweaty moving bright and early Friday. So off to bed we go, good night 🙂

Hilarious Lil’ Swordsman

Back to the Magic Kingdom today…

This family was on the monorail with us. Their little guy was hilarious. Just before I took this he took his pirate sword and jabbed his sister and said, “You farted.” Which she promptly denied. He jabbed her again, “Its ok, I pee’d.”

Found some characters we hadn’t taken pics with…

As you can see we were at ‘It’s A Small World’ at 1:30 pm…

Vacation or not, the competition must be won!…

Hope everyone found something hilarious along the way today!
