TV Workout and a quick thank you

Ohhh the the benefits of a morning workout.  How quickly we forget.

So this morning I was just laying in bed after time had passed where I could get out for a run or go to the gym with enough time and I though.  Morgan said something about Fitness on Demand on Time Warner.  I searched it out this morning and guess what...  IT WAS THERE.

I queued up this men's fitness cardio workout that focuses on the core.  Let me tell you this 22 minute work out was great.  Well at least for sweating and huffing and puffing.  I am guessing I might be a bit sore from it but I am feeling good and full of energy this morning.  I am not sure the TV workout is for me but I can tell you that it is better for me than laying in bed.

On the food front... Well I suck.  I have come a long way and that is great and all but I need to focus.  The holidays are coming up.  Comfort food is coming out in droves with the cold weather.  At least I am holding steady.  I am still below 300 so I am happy for the that.

Finally.  Thank you for the comments yesterday.  I think you guys are right and maybe we need to dream a little more and share that with our little ones.  All this thought of losing sight of our dreams has made me think about my own dreams and happiness.  It has also made me think about my child and all the children out there.  So I pass this along to you parents and future parents.

Let your children dream and dream BIG.  Encourage it.  As simple as it sounds, do it.  We get caught up in our daily lives of work and the news we are fed with every day.  Shelter you kids more from the negativity of the world.  It makes me think of  the song "Accentuate the Positive", check out the lyrics.  This was what we need to do more of in our lives.

Accentuate the Positive-

Gather 'round me, everybody
Gather 'round me while I'm preachin'
Feel a sermon comin' on me
The topic will be sin and that's what I'm ag'in'
If you wanna hear my story
The settle back and just sit tight
While I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium's
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do just when everything looked so dark?

(Man, they said "We'd better accentuate the positive")
("Eliminate the negative")
("And latch on to the affirmative")
Don't mess with Mister In-Between (No!)
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

(Ya got to spread joy up to the maximum)
(Bring gloom down to the minimum)
(Have faith or pandemonium's)
(Liable to walk upon the scene)

You got to ac (yes, yes) -cent-tchu-ate the positive
Eliminate (yes, yes) the negative
And latch (yes, yes) on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, don't mess with Mister In-Between

I will focus more on the weight loss and exercise now.  Lets face it.  I proved it to myself for the millionth time.  Start your day off with some exercise and you just feel better.  Plain and simple.

Exercise on demand is really cool. There are so many options too. I usually load the family fitness one and try to do it with my 2 yr. old. We usually make it about 15 minutes before losing his attention and me getting tired.

One of my favorite quotes is, "We must teach our children to dream with their eyes wide open."

This quote is on cards that our judges in Nebraska give to families when they adopt children. It fits all children though. =)
