Fitness Challenge Day 20 – What a Feeling!

As I walk I listen to Pandora and have a variety of stations I like. While walking this morning, the theme song from the 1983 movie “Flashdance” came on. I always loved that movie…a kind of “Rocky” for dancers about a rough cut city girl who wanted to try out for dance school. It’s a movie about determination and overcoming odds.

What a Feeling!

The lyrics to the song “Flashdance (What a Feeling)” truly elicit my own attitude towards my challenge — I took some liberties with the lyrics:

What a feeling, bein’s believin’
I can have it all, now I’m walkin’ for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can walk right through your life

I like the “take your passion” line. Those that know me well know that I am a passionate individual, sometimes too much so. I really only find success when I take something personally and passionately. And then I own it. It’s that burning passion to succeed and win.

Feeling Drencheriffic at 6 AM

But my “passion” comes at a price. Quite often I am so impassioned about one thing that I leave no room for other things. I become passionately engrossed in that ONE thing. But, what a feeling when I take that passion to fulfillment!

As for today, I did get a walk in. It was 1.55 miles in the mist and the drizzle…

Brown Rice, spicy beans, salad and avocado…a luscious dinner

Had a good apple for breakfast, a huge salad for lunch.  For dinner, Julianne made a great Rice/Bean bowl with some salad and avocado on top.

First Watermelon of the season

Then we finished it off with the first watermelon of the season. Yummiferous!
