Next year, the grant under which I am working ends. There is a possibility that I will continue on as an outreach manager for the Cancer Center, but dh presented me with another idea.
"You have a knack for writing", He says. "People listen to you", he says. "You are successful", he says. Ok, then? What are you getting at? "I think you should write a book about your 'no gimmick' weightloss success. Dissect the various weight loss plans on the market. Talk about bariatric surgery. Tell them how they can do it. Go on a book tour."
Hmmm. I *have* been thinking about that, but fleetingly. I mean there are hundreds of thousands of 'diet' books on the market. How would mine be different?
"I'm not done," he answered. After that you open a 'clinic'. You coach people, not in a meeting set-up, but one on one. You have a shower or 2, bathrooms, and just a couple of workout machines so that people can workout in private. You counsel them individually. Of course you have disclaimers, like 'must clear with your doctor first'!"
Well. that goes without saying.
Actually, being a 'health coach' is something that I would love to do! I have a lot of people coming to me now. I'm pretty straight-forward though. No molly-coddling from me!
So, what says you? Do you think this would appeal to non-sparkers?

I have been so busy lately that I have had to prioritize and one of the things put on the back burner has been blogging. I have been focusing on getting 21000 steps daily this week to be increased to 22000 next week. My feet are killing me, but I just have to learn to deal with that. I use my rebounder quite a bit because it is easy on my feet.
My Fitbit died yesterday, but it was revived. I was near panic! Even with my BodyMedia backup, I knew how many steps I had, but I have some challenges that require the Fitbit.
I have been trying to spend more family time, because if we are too busy for family, we are too busy.
I am attempting to carve more prayer time into my life. I pray a lot. Continuously, But I do not have any dedicated prayer time, and I feel like I should start.
So prioritizing, this is what I came up with.
1) My Poundage Plan. Plan my meals and make sure that I get my steps in, challenging myself to get more each week.
2) My husband. He needs "wifey" time. I need to do my part in setting time aside for us.
3) My kids. Molly, though 24, still needs me. Sarah, lives 2600 miles away, but we need phone time.
4) My house. Now, that is fairly easy when dh is gone. He is such a slob! It is also part of my exercise routine for the weekend and gives me PLENTY of steps!
5) Everything else. Work/Spark/Facebook/Games . This is my "me" time and much of it can be done while walking on the elliptical, in place or on the rebounder. Typing though, like in blogging, is difficult when walking!
So that is where I have been! I check in often, but don't always have a chance to blog. Know that I am watching you!

I worked almost 24 hours on the weekend, so I took today and tomorrow off. Dh has been whining about not seeing me enough. *insert eyeroll here* I am so looking forward to his hunting trip! I plan on heading down to Grants Pass to meet with my friend Cheryl to do some Zumba at the Y. I am also heading up to Eugene to meet with a friend, Tina, to do some walking.
Molly and I plan on walking up to a "local" mountain for a picnic and to go shooting. It is 10 miles away, so we will take the cars up and leave one with our picnic lunch, then drive the other one home, then walk back. We also plan on a walk to a favorite diner for brunch one day. It is 7.5 miles each way. Not having to worry about Rich sitting at home and 'missing me' frees me up. This is my vacation, too!
In the past I would be planning what I would eat, not what I would DO! What a change!
For now, I sleep. I actually slept 8 hours last night and plan the same tonight!
Good night all!

Monday, September 01, 2014
Last week I made my 15,000 step goal daily with 2 days over 20,000. This month I am shooting for 20,000 daily.
Today dear daughter Molly organized a delicious picnic with some activity planned. We tossed a ball around outside then we all went for a walk. She and I took 3 walks today.
It is another busy week with an event planned for next Sunday for work. I think I will take off the following Friday as a comp day because on the 13th Molly and I are doing a mud run. mudfactor.com/ I can hardly wait. I think. This is very much out of my comfort zone!
Will try to check in tomorrow, but this is my busy time at work. Between that and getting hubby ready to head east for a few weeks, I am really crazy!
Have a nice evening!
