Quickie while eating soup

I love this guy.

I know you’re thinking, scam! But I love the way he writes. I actually subscribe to his emails because he frequently talks about things I can apply in other parts of my life. I don’t want to change my career or turn all powerful, I have too much going on to worry about stuff like that, but I do like it when he tells me I’m procrastinating or gives me little motivational pep talks about my focus.
The blog that is up today is about how you learn new skills. Very informative. I liked this:

“One of my friends (and former clients), Tim Grahl, has a great rule of thumb:

“I assume that future Tim is going to be stupid, lazy, and make bad decisions, so I set up my environment to prevent that from happening.”

I did that with exercise. I took about two weeks to make sure my little area that I exercise in has exactly every thing I might need. I keep hand towels on the treadmill. I keep a box of tissue next to my bike (my nose always runs during a workout) I have a music stand in front of my gazelle to hold my tablet. I keep a set of earbuds in that room all the time so I always have music immediately available. I keep an extension cord next to the treadmill in case my tablets battery is low. I made it was hard as possible for me to talk myself out of working out.

Had a nice weekend. On saturday my husband and I went to Dearborn MI and the Henry Ford Museum.


After wandering for a couple of hours we went down the street to the apparently famous Buddys Pizza.



then home and later met my sister an her Doug for dinner.

Sunday was a 2nd round of walnut picking then a few hours of walnut cleaning!

 I’m eating my emergency potato / spinach / Quinoa soup for lunch today because instead of bringing my carton of pumpkin soup from Trader Joes, I brought a carton of Pumpkin! I always have pumpkin in the house because it’s good for emergency healthier cakes. 

I am getting my hair trimmed and foiled at a new place after work. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I seem to be some kind of bad luck charm to hair stylists.


 Lunch is over! Back to my real Monday.
