Day 2: A Spark


I was up right on time this morning – 4am – a bit earlier than normal. Made the bed, changed into workout clothing and hit the weights and the Peloton.

I spent over an hour working out, and the payoff was a solid dose of adrenaline. It carried me through a very long and full day of work. My diet was on point today, as was my water intake. HOWEVER….for the first time in my life….I took a multi vitamin specifically designed for people ages 50 and over. I almost threw the damn bottle out the nearest window. Then I was forced to come to the realization that the clock is ticking. The concept of moving the needle each day is becoming more and more important. I cannot waste time – I’ve done too much of that already.

Today I can say that I moved the needle in a special way: I spent some time volunteering to virtually tutor elementary school kids through a program offered by Iona College. God it felt good, helping a kid learn reading comprehension. I may not have moved the needle with regard to my book, a podcast – but it moved the needle in my soul.

I’m finding a rhythm – and it…….is…….good.
