How to Eat an Elephant

cruise0022At age 65 and almost 250 pounds, I was desperate to do something to regain my health.

My first attempts at exercise were sporadic and it took me awhile to learn what healthy eating was all about. I didn’t have the perfect plan but it was gratifying to be headed in the right direction.

The goal of being fully alive physically is daunting and sometimes seems impossible. There are times when in spite of all your resolve, weeks and months pass without progress.

It’s as though you stand gazing at a mountain peak, longing to be at the summit. But without some intermediate goals, your friends may find you standing in the same place years later still dreaming of being at the top.

6 Factors to Help You Reach the Top of Your Mountain

UntitledThis is an adaptation of a previous post. Almost three years ago we started climbing “Jones Mountain” just after the sun arrived to warm the chilly Colorado air. It was not a technical dangerous climb, but it was one that many adults would find difficult to complete.

The air was thin and legs were wobbly, but several factors allowed six children, ages 5 to 13, and three adult fossils to reach the 13,000 ft summit. Those same factors can help you reach any goal you set. 

5 Tips on Handling the Ups and Downs of Life

IMG_0771I am currently on a sabbatical in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. During my time here, I recharge my batteries and restore my body to some sense of physical shape. (Round is a shape)

Yesterday I hiked 4 miles up and down high country ridges and valleys. A total of 3000 ft up and 3000 ft down. By the time I returned home it was almost dark.

On the drive to our cabin I relived the events of the day and these thoughts on handling the ups and downs of life danced in my brain. I hope you find them helpful even if you don’t dance.
