ession_with_healthy_living_weight_loss

My vision-based goals by the end of 2018 are to
lighten up to 210lbs,
gain 35+ lbs of muscle,
incorporate some mind-based games into my routine to increase my memory and mental speed,
and find something completely new to incorporate into my routine.

Performance goals:
Deadlift 400lbs x 3 reps in good form
Bench press 200lbs x 5 reps in good form
Squat 150lbs x 5 reps in good form
Barbell curl 70lbs x 10 reps in good form
Dumbbell curl 35 lbs x 10 reps in good form
Run 8 miles in 2 hours
Complete run 5k with little effort.

Other Goals:
Move out!
Travel to Italy
Travel to Boston, Maine
Travel to Spirit Lake, Iowa
Travel to New Orleans
Travel to Grand Canyon
Travel to Yellowstone
Travel to Japan
Start planning a trip to Spain (food, art, architecture, culture, etc.)*
Fix my view of food. Food should be fuel and energize you. Treats are just that, and should be eaten sparingly.

*It wasn't until I started looking into Italy that I realized that Spanish culture is as interesting as Italian.

    How do you frighten this new generation?
    Put them in a room with a rotary phone, an analog watch,
    and a TV with no remote (add rabbit ears for fun)
    Then leave directions for use in cursive.

    You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
    You fall, I laugh, then fall too, because I was laughing too hard.
    I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
    Nothing compares with the stomach ache I get from laughing with my
    best friend..that awkward moment when you can't stop laughing while
    telling a joke, and when you're finally done, your friend doesn't even get it.

    emoticon Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects
    Please take it regularly emoticon

    Welcome to the closing of an old door.
    for it is then a new door shall open.
    So, as the old door closes on 2019,
    I will walk through the open door to 2020,
    and walk into a new chapter of my life.
    emoticon emoticon ~~In My New Chapter~~ emoticon emoticon
    I will LAUGH and I will CRY
    And TREASURE the happiness.
    I will GROW from the pain and
    FORGIVE ones who will hurt me.
    I will do my best to FORGET
    For my life is too SHORT
    To live with REGRET.
    emoticon emoticon ~~HAPPY NEW YEAR !!~~ emoticon emoticon

    It's not the presents that make Christmas so special
    It's the presence of those you love,
    whether they are with you in person or spirit!

    This day is a day to reflect before Christmas of Christmas pasts!
    We all have things we remember, and the memories it brings.
    Making snowmen, and angels in the snow.
    Singing Christmas carols, watching Christmas shows on black/white TV
    Shopping for Mom and Dad, sisters, brothers, friends
    trying to find them that special something
    They will love and cherish for years to come.
    Wrapping their gifts with the prettiest paper,
    the biggest bows and ribbons just for them, listening to Christmas music
    The opening of gifts from Santa Claus with smiles & laughter
    Knowing you were the luckiest person alive.
    The getting together of relatives, and friends.
    Sitting together, sharing the best Christmas meal.
    And filling the house with noise, laughter, and love.
    This is a day to reflect on some of the best days we ever had.

    The best gifts can't often be packed inside a box ..
    how can you wrap shared laughter and tears or talks that run into hours?
    They can only be wrapped & treasured in our hearts

    With only 10 Days left, we need to stop, take a deep breath, sit back,
    relax, and take a few minutes to read what a boy & girl want for Christmas.
    emoticon emoticon What A Boy Wants For Christmas emoticon emoticon

    Darren remembers accompanying his father out shopping
    in the toy department of Macy's one Christmas Eve.
    Dad said, 'What a marvelous train set. I'll buy it.'
    The girl behind the counter looked pleased and murmured,
    'Great, I'm sure your son will really love it.'
    Dad replied with a glint in his eye, 'Maybe you're right. In that case I'll take two.'

    emoticon emoticon What A Girl Wants For Christmas emoticon emoticon
    The Santa Claus at the shopping mall was very surprised when Emily,
    a young lady aged about 20 years old walked up and sat on his lap.
    Now, we all know that Santa doesn't usually take requests from adults,
    She smiled very nicely at him, so he asked her,
    'What do you want for Christmas?'
    'Something for my mother, please,' replied Emily sweetly.
    'Something for your mother? Well, that's very loving and thoughtful of you,'
    smiled Santa. 'What would you like me to bring her?
    Without turning a hair Emily answered quickly, 'A son-in-law.'

    What would YOU want for Christmas? Do you have it on YOUR list?
