Tonight’s word is ACTIVE. Something I need to be more of. You may want to refer to the blog about procrastination. My biggest downfall. One of the things I think I fear (may be a harsher word than necessary) is the inability of my fingers to keep up with my mind. The thoughts come quicker than I can type. Next thing you know well, next thing I know, is they are all jumbled up in my head. I have the beginnings to about three stories. Whether I make them short stories or novels remains to be seen.
Funny side note here, most times I can type faster looking at the screen as opposed to looking down at the keyboard.
Back to the word…being as ACTIVE as I am or in most cases am not. Is not good enough for where I really want to be. Of course I am referring to the whole weight issue. Now for those of you that are knew to this site, I used to weigh in at around 260+. I now weigh in at 230, sometimes less when I am being slightly more diligent. Or should I say slightly more ACTIVE.
Of course being ACTIVE doesn’t necessarily have to mean going to the gym. It could simply mean getting outside and doing more fun things. Taking a hike, going for a bike ride, walking to my favorite sandwich place for lunch, and then heading to the local marina and taking some laps around the lake there.
In my own defense, I mentioned that I want to write. As I have stated in earlier blog pages, all the so called experts say that to be a good writer you have to read. So I do a fair amount of reading. I cannot, however, use this as an excuse for not getting out more.
Also, being more ACTIVE doesn’t have to even mean physically. In my case I need to be more active in here. Putting more pages to my blog. I need to put more pages to my books. I need to get into my radio show more, back to once a week instead of once every two to three weeks. For those of you that haven’t been made aware I have a show that I air occasionally on blogtalkradio titled “boomersperch”. If you type that into a word search you have to specify whether you want my radio show at blogtalk, or my blog at wordpress.
On the radio I call myself the ramblinman because I can get to rambling on just about any subject. I guess you could say I get pretty ACTIVE on the radio. The only unfortunate thing about the show is that I cannot schedule it too far in advance. This is due to the fact that I never really know when my days off are going to be. Another reason to be more active in my writing. Maybe, just maybe, it would take off and I can get out of the normal working world and into the life I really want to have. Hmmmm
I think I am going to sign off here. Hopefully I will see you back here soon. I definitely am coming to your blogs to check out what you have all been up to.
