Sunday Blog - This and That

Sunday, December 08, 2019

I recently gained almost 3 pounds. It is unusual for me to gain because I try as I might to eat well, exercise daily, etc. While 3 pounds may not sound like a lot of weight to many - it is a lot of weight for me. I am making a goal to lose 3 pounds before the New Year. I want to focus on progress, not perfection. But to be successful, I have to eat less calories and exercise more. My shopping trips must occur when I am NOT hungry. Otherwise, I will buy snacks and more carbs.

John Lennon was murdered on this day in 1980. It was not as commonplace to hear of this type of thing at that time.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

-John Lennon
