Day 71 what is the secret of your power?

High above the mucky-muck castle made of clouds, there sits wonderboy sitting oh so proudly, this is how I feel at times since I have started this whole thing. not much to say when your high above the mucky-muck, but when you fall below and its getting into ya a bit that changes things. I have to stay above because so far so good and I am 100% healthier and much lighter than I have been in years. a bad week or 2 going to get to me? maybe momentarily, but if I let it last any longer than that I shall be doomed, now it's time for me to tell you about young nastyman arch-rival and nemesis of wonderboy with powers comparable to wonderboy! what powers you ask? how about the power of flight? that do anything for ya? that's levitation Holmes! No seriously, I have felt like I can fly lately, seemingly unstoppable in my trip to the half. but alas a roadblock has presented itself to me in the form of a slow down, and I can either take it as it is, which is something I knew would happen eventually or I can let it get me down, I don't think I will let it get me down. how 'bout the power to kill a yak? from two hundred yards away! with mind bullets! that's telekinesis Kyle! or maybe just a low in a sea of high spots from the front row. ahhh yes thats it thats what I will do. young nasty man may not have his way with me, for I am wonderboy and I say so, how 'bout the move you?

random or makes sense, either way nothing is going to get me down or stop me. might my loss slow? indeed. might it stop me? Neva! I have decided that I am in charge now, I am the one that makes it happen, I am the man behind the curtain. it will happen on my terms and I will not let negativity into this thing that I am doing. I had a bad day, we all have bad days, but that bad day won't dictate my week or my month, its done and now I have to figure out what I can do about it. raising my calories? more exercise? change the types of food I eat? or maybe I am just having an off week, I don't know yet but I will know. with that I give you the menu.

  1. Just wanted to cheer ya on a bit!

  2. Tony,
    You have a solid grasp on this. And it's ok to feel what you feel. It's how you let those feelings affect you. Your entry today shows that despite a "bad day", you are putting yourself back on track. The only was to find solutions is to try out your idea's. Keep up the good work, cause I know you have what it takes to succeed.

  3. Oh, man, I think I lost you at the rigga roo, something or other...
    You got 'dis. You're doing great, and staying right on track, as always. Want some good lyrics? How bout:
    Ain't nothin' gonna to break my stride
    Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh-no
    I got to keep on movin'
    Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
    I'm running and I won't touch ground
    Oh-no, I got to keep on movin'

    That's the song I imagine you singing when you're writing your posts on here sometimes! Jamaican accent and all. ;)

    Ain't nothin gonna break your stride, not even a crappy week or a crappy day!

  4. Robyn, I have come to the conclusion that you are nuts lol, that last comment made me laugh. now when I write on here tomorrow I will surely have that song stuck in my head.

    As Ever

  5. I also want to thank Amanda and Sandy for the comments posted ;) I am cool again, it is what it is and I hate to say this (and can't believe I am) but that song pretty much says it...doh lol

    As Ever

  6. LOVE the "power" post!! So many songs from Queen apply to that! For your pounds..."Another One Bites the Dust" YOU GO!!!!!
