American Meat Film

Yesterday's post was to be my last for August, but I saw this trailer and simply HAD to share it with you.  You all are familiar with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm, right?   Well, he is a featured farmer in this film and from watching the trailer I can see that once again, he does not disappoint. 

He delivers the truth about our food supply and conventional farming, along with the only sustainable solution-- small-scale, family-owned farms.

Click on the link below and then view the Trailer.

Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone!

August Highlights

As the summer winds down, and August along with it, I'd like to share a few favorites...
1)  Exercising many days this month.  How is your plan going?  After my last post, I exercised 10 days in a row and have continued a regular habit of exercising.
2)  I started a new position on my project and have dedicated more of my time to work.  Hm.  This is not exciting news.
3) Made 2 trips to the beach.  One to Bethany Beach with a good friend and her family.  The other one to Rehoboth with my dear husband, Greg.
4) I've had some wonderful, inspiring visits with friends in the last week as I have taken a few days off.
5) A surprise... you'll hear about it next month!

Enjoy a few pics from Rehoboth Beach.

leaping over hurdles

Two days ago I posted about Oscar Pistorius after being inspired by watching his race.  What I did not share was my small accomplishment of exercising three days in a row. It does not seem like much, but this is a victory for me.  For whatever reason, this hurdle has been my foe for some time, and recently I got mad, very mad, and determined that I would commit myself to daily fighting to beat this foe.

In sharing this I hope to begin a transparent conversation and to be accountable.  I also invite you to share your obstacles and your journey in triumphing over them. 

What are your obstacles at the moment?  What are you doing to overcome them?  Leave a comment and let's encourage each other on in the good fight.

No Words Needed

Oscar Pistorius.  If this man does not inspire, then nothing will.
We all have obstacles in our lives. be they physical, emotional, financial, social, or even imaginary.  But no one will disagree that Oscar Pistorius is an example for everyone one of us, no matter what our obstacle. 

As a double amputee wearing prostheses, if he can qualify and compete in the Olympics, you can overcome whatever road blocks you are facing today.  So get up, stop making excuses and start fighting them now.

I'm in the battle along side you and will keep you posted with my progress.  I hope to hear from you as well; I know you will inspire me.
