Don’t Sit On The Sidelines

Tomorrow Jill and I leave for Lake Tahoe  so we can cycle the #72 miles in America’s Most Beautiful Ride we have been training for the past 12 weeks.

Where did the time go?  How can it almost be June 3, departure date?  The planning of this destination ride we are about to do illustrates an excellent example of how time passes all of us by, and we must seize opportunities, if not create them.

Life is so precious and so short, let’s get in the game!


Life is not meant for us to sit on the sidelines and watch, it’s meant for us to participate and grow and evolve.  As I prepare for my trip tomorrow, and I gather all my essentials I am so elated that I set this goal for myself.  The planning, training and commitment taught me that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.  You just have to DO what you set out to do.  Today, I finalized all my plans; I made my way to the store and got my last minute necessities for race day and I even got in a nap as I was overly tired.  I limited my activities and spent plenty of time with family discussing my intentions for myself and for them.  Health and fitness are of high priority to me, and I want all those I care about to be in good health.  Achieving and maintaining good health takes work, and that means getting off the sidelines and changing up the program. Start a new fitness regime, begin eliminating toxic foods from your diet one small bite at a time, put yourself on the list, enjoy fresh air, lose a few extra pounds, don’t rush the process but hurry up and get started!  If you really want to get off the sidelines and get in the game, set a goal that requires a realistic plan and stick to it so you can see fabulous results and remarkable change in yourself.   Take it slow, and don’t give up.  Have fun.

Getting ready for bed now as I have a travel day ahead of me.  Let’s do the checklist tomorrow! Have a pleasant evening, and start thinking about an event -big or small that will get you off the sidelines and into the game of life!
