TimothyWalking is really helping me loose weight.

The walking has really made me feel more energetic, plus has been a part of my loosing NINE pounds over the last five weeks. The other contributing factor to my weight loss is eating much healthier: more fruits and vegetables, less meat, almost no junk food. For a snack, I eat a piece of fruit or have 97% fat-free popcorn.
Even though we’ve had days in the 90 to 100 degree range, I’ve been walking early in the morning, starting at 6:00 or 6:30 a.m. to beat the heat. 2 years ago


TimothyI've been walking 4 to 6 miles per day!!

TimothyI just wrote a letter to volunteer at the Missouri Botanical Garden.

I love photography, took early retirement, and have some extra time.
I went on facebook and found the MOBOT’s page. I simply made a comment on one of their posts, and asked for the name of a contact to volunteer as a photographer.
Then I wrote her a note along with a slide-show of some of my flower photos:

TimothyI have a Creative Labs Audigy2 ZS

Even though I’ve had the hardware, microphones, and software to make and publish my music, I haven’t done it. I need to set small, achievable goals, set reminders, track progress, and get this thing DONE!
I have a friend 64 years of age, and he recently died of a stroke. I don’t want to die without achieving my main goals in life.
Any help and suggestions are welcome.
By the way, that’s NOT ME in the photo, but rather a musician I ran into who obviously makes music his life. 2 years ago

TimothyJoy, Creativity, FUN, and Transformation

Those are the four main possibilities for my life. The are also my main goals, leading ultimately to happiness. When I took “Introduction to Philosophy” last fall, all of the great philosophers agree that happiness is the main goal in life, and when you are happy you have achieved the highest goal. Money, prestige, power don’t matter unless they bring happiness, and they rarely do.
I have a blog where I try to document my efforts at becoming self-actualized: Creativity+ is the name of the blog:

TimothyI'm starting to use GOOGLE TASKS

I have several separate lists which are helping me organize.

- PROJECTS (which I break down into parts (bite-sized 45 minute) I can put on my DAILY list.

- QUICKIES = short & fun or easy (things that take 15 minutes or less)

- DAILY – for things I want to do each and every day.

- TODAY – a few of the DAILY things, QUICKIES and pieces of PROJECTS that I can accomplish successfully today.

- THANK YOU NOTES ( pick one every day or so and add to the TODAY list

- BREAKS = short 15 minute things to relax, recharge, and refresh

Every hour, I set a timer for 45 minutes for an accomplishment, followed by 15 minutes for a BREAK – I just look at my break list if I run out of ideas for breaks.
Some TODAY items only take 10 or 15 minutes, and I mark down an estimated time.

The attached picture is my BREAKS list so far

Now, I don’t do this slavishly or even completely successfully each day, but I’m trying to shape my life better as I go along. Progress, not perfection is my goal. 2 years ago

TimothyA LIFELONG STRUGGLE

Unfortunately, I keep forgetting that I can’t have “just one” cigarette. I’ve been smoking again for about 3 months. First it’s one, then bumming 3-4 next week, then feeling bad about begging for cigarettes. So I buy a pack. Next week it’s 3 a day, the following it’s 4 per day, and so on. I’m up to 6 or 7 (1/3 pack)a day now.

What I’m doing to at least keep the numbers down:

1) I’ve hidden a pack a 1/4 mile from my house. Somewhere it won’t get rained on. That way, I have to make an effort, and sometimes postpone that next cigarette. Besides, with round trips, smoking 6 cigarettes makes me walk 3 miles in a day. It’s helping.

2) I’ve looked up NICOTINE ANONYMOUS. Nicotine is one of the most addictive drugs around, and most alcoholics admit this fact. I’ve scheduled on my calendar the next 10 meetings in my area. Here’s a link for “Nicotine Anonymous”http://www.nicotine-anonymous.org/standard_search.php” 2 years ago


TimothyIt's amazing how a little exercise can grow into more

I started three weeks ago by walking 2 1/2 miles. Next day it was 3 miles, followed by a 6 mile bike ride the next day.
Last week I was able to get up to a 5 mile walk! It took an hour and a half.
Since the summer heat here is so awful, I’m leaving the house at 6:30 a.m. to get started. 2 years ago
