And back to our regularly scheduled programming….

So here’s the update on what has been going on since my post earlier this week.  Exercise has been going very well – I have walked every day this week for at least an hour.  The weather has been mostly perfect for outdoor exercise this week, except for Wednesday when I watched rain clouds rolling in from the beginning of my walk and just when I was lulled into a false sense of security that the weather would, the rain came down for the last 3kms of my walk – lucky it was not a heavy shower, just a little heavier than a sprinkle really.

My food has been going well too. I seem to have got myself back into a better routine and I am already seeing the results on the scale. I have been aiming at a 500 calorie deficit each day and have been pretty successful with that.

I was browsing one of the many online shopping offers that I regularly receive the other week and noticed a book called “The Pointless Book” which basically challenges the reader to take on a series of tasks/challenges from the book.  It came from the PointlessBlog on youtube.  The clip below is not the original, but someone else completing some of the challenges in the book:

The reader is encouraged to perform each task in a random order, so here is my first task: to write down my favourite quote and the author.  I have two: the first I used to hear from a radio announcer, Mark Kennedy as his sign off each afternoon – “Aim for the impossible to achieve the extraordinary”, and the second comes from Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story “To infinity and beyond!”  I guess they both flow along a similar theme.  Woody has been questioning Buzz’s ability to fly, so Buzz climbs to the end of the bed and launches himself into a successful flight.  He has faith in himself and achieves what should have been impossible.  He does not allow anyone, including himself to doubt what he can do, he just does it.

It is like the theory of the bumble bee – aerodynamically, a bumble bee should not be able to fly.  The bumble bee doesn’t know this theory and flies anyway.

When you allow yourself to do things rather than listening to the doubters, you can achieve amazing things, it is all about having faith that you can do it. And on that note, it’s time to fly 🙂
