It was a great day! Went to 24 Hour Fitness and worked out. I was actually impressed to see one good Trainer. Yesterday I was at different one and witness the worst set of Personal Trainers ever. People watching is what gets me through these workouts. I am normally scanning for the hot half-naked girls but most of the time I go at 10-11 am so that’s not exactly what I get to see. I am normally looking at the oldest or biggest person in spandex. Next it was time to relax. I was hoping to go Mountain Biking but I was so tiered. I choose to take the dogs for a 2 mile walk instead.
I have been working on some obedience issues with my Olde English Bully Sampson. I think that the reading I have done is actually paying off. He is being much better behaved during our walks and at home. We walked about 2 miles and both Paddington and Sampson did great.
Now I am sitting dow and enjoying a Pipeline porter from Hawaii while writing this and watching at my awesome reef tank.
What are your favorite Beers?
Well tomorrow is New Years Eve. Next year the world is coming to an end (LOL) so this year your resolutions have to be amazing. So the normal resolution is to get in shape and most people work really hard at this for about a week and the dedicated people last 2 weeks.
So how is this year going to be different. I used to be a Personal Trainer and I am still very much into fitness. The key is to have fun. Going to the gym will not alone get you fit. You have to know what you are doing and you have to enjoy it. This may take time because in the beginning it will hurt and you will suffer a bit. If you do not like the gym then don’t go! There are plenty other things you can do: biking, running, swimming, soccer, tennis, cross-country skiing, etc. The best thing you can do is sign up for a race or tournament that way you will hold yourself accountable. Also if possible get a coach or personal trainer. Also there are great apps that can help you such as all sport GPS, FitDeck, and Livestrong MyPlate.
So what else are you going to do. I mean now you are going to look good and feel good so what are you going to do! For some of you, you need to stop being scared of life and get out the and enjoy it. “If you risk nothing, you risk everything.” (Geena Davis) Some people won’t go biking because they might get hurt, some will not go sky diving or scuba diving for the same reason. Yea I know you have a family that depends on you but that’s what insurance is for, use it. Watching your life pass you by will kill you faster than any activity, well base jumping might kill you faster so if you have a family you probably shouldn’t do it but you get my point have fun and take risks.
Next year is new opportunity. Have fun!

Lastly, I will leave you with a quote.
“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
― Albert Einstein
We all forget this sometimes but one day that garbage man might be your boss. We all have to start somewhere and we all have set backs and that garbage man has great potential. We are all equal and sometimes it is a very small gesture that makes your life turn from ordinary to extraordinary.
