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.

  1. I think that is a brilliant way to set up your exercise area.

    Craig was wondering how far you are from Dearborn.

    How was the emergency soup?

    Are you happy with the new hair?

    • Dearborn is an hour away, all highway. An hour is just the point for us where it’s okay to make it a regular trip. Anything over an hour you start thinking, oooo that’s a long drive just for “insert strange item”.
      My soup made me sick I think. Which is odd because I’ve eaten that soup plenty of times. I seem to have developed a new issue with potatoes. Who knows. 🙂
      Yes, very happy with the hair! She’s a keeper. Already schedule a 7 week hair trim. I am determined to start getting my hair trimmed regularly. This once every 6 to 9 months is just leaving me with a head full of damaged hair. The place is also a very convenient location. It’s between my office and my house.

      • I know Craig really wants to go up there but that is a haul for us now. Something for me to think about.

        Bummer about the soup and potatoes. It is always something.

        Yay! It is so nice to find someone that does a great job on your hair. How nice that it is so conveniently located.

      • According to Google four hour drive for you, if you don’t stop anywhere! That is a long haul. They change exhibits frequently so it’s always a little different every time we go. There is also Greenfield Village which is attached. It takes three’ish hours to walk the museum, and it would take like four to walk Greenfield Village so we don’t usually do both at the same time. Museum in the cold, Village on nice days. 🙂
        Comfort Inn Near Greenfield Village

        Dearborn, MI 48124

        Just saying. 🙂

      • You are just too sweet! Craig was there BMB ( before mb) and has always wanted to go back. Hmmm…..
