Standing at My Monday Morning Crossroads… Again

It is a Monday morning, and like many of the recent Monday mornings of weeks, or rather months past, I am at a crossroads. It’s funny how that happens so often as I get older.

Brick Wall - Setting Goals and Meeting Resistance on Day One!

Setting Goals and Meeting Resistance on Day One

How do you push back what some would call “failure”, and just reset and restart your goals? Well, alas I set my goals, but I met resistance on day one. I have not done so well so far with the gym.
