It's another Monday

I just came across this quote on another blog that is really good. It's by a U.S. National Team cyclist that Chris Carmichael worked with:

I decided early on to shoot for the stars, figuring that if I fell short, I would at least reach the moon. But had I been more conservative with my goals, and only tried to reach the moon, falling short would have left me in the middle of nowhere.


How awesome is that quote?? I really love it and I'm guilty of ending up in the middle of nowhere more often then I care to admit to.

It was a rough and wild weekend and I'm kind of glad it's over. Picked up a couple of orphaned cockatiels, one of whom has an eye injury and is going to the vet today. Had a bird club meeting and the bitch who makes me crazy wasn't there - yeah!! Went out to an awesome place for dinner last night. It's one of those restaurants we forget about but every time we go love it. Consumed more Girl Scout crack than I should have. Those are the highlights.

Got up this morning and really felt like running. I didn't know why, but I really felt like running. So then I started looking back and yikes!! I have not run since Feb 27th, almost 2 weeks. Yikes!! No wonder I felt like running. While waiting for the sky to start getting light, I did my weight workout. As I was I caught my reflection in the turned off TV and I was WOW!! I'm starting to get some definition in my shoulders, upper back, and neck area. WOW!! It's finally starting to pay off.

Well, I have to get some work done. I'm taking Pirate (the one-eyed cockatiel) to the vet's at 1:30. I'd like to be done with work before that but I don't think that will happen. But I'm off to give it a try. Maybe if I took some energy pills I could move faster. Now, if only I had some......
