SNOW is what greeted me when I woke up this morning. SNOW is what happened mid-March – mere weeks before spring. SNOW is what made me cranky today. School was cancelled, gym was closed, and it’s cold. I am so over winter – it’s overstayed its welcome. I am all for seasons but it’s time for this one to move on. I need more sunlight, more outdoor activities, more warmer temps. Who is with me??
Next Sunday is Team Hoagie’s Heroes annual 5K Scope it Out Race to help raise awareness and money for Colon Cancer. Colon cancer is curable if detected early and there is no reason why we shouldn’t detect it early. Go to Chris4Life and find out more info about colon cancer, its signs and symptoms and other ways to be in the know. The colonoscopy is nothing compared to what you have to go through if you actually do have colon cancer – trust me. I had to witness Scotty’s diagnosis and treatment and it ain’t something you want to go through.
Now, let’s talk about the impending season change…
With spring is coming – or at least I am assuming it will be here soon, it’s a great time to reevaluate your goals. Many of us make a list of things we want to do at the beginning of the year and rarely check in with them to see how they are progressing. Spring means you can be more active outside, get some more Vitamin D, socialize with friends that you rarely saw during the winter. Do me and yourself a favor, take a few minutes in the evening this week and write down a few things you want to accomplish this season. Don’t jot down too many – just a few things that you have been meaning to do, or really want to do and work towards completing them or making progress towards their completion. It’s a great feeling to be able to feel the momentum that is created when you are moving towards goals you set for yourself.
