Dreams and Goals

“It’s a dream until you write it down, then it’s a goal.” – Anonymous

What dreams are you dreaming lately?  Will you turn any of them into goals?

I loved this quote when I stumbled across it because I feel it perfectly describes how I feel about marathon training.  I haven’t started the training yet (the schedule doesn’t start until mid-June) and am keeping busy in the meantime with training for the 10K I’m running with Rachel. The marathon is in the back of my mind on every single run I take, though.  It is still a dream.  It won’t be a goal until I actually write it down — in a calendar, in this blog, in an exercise log.  We’ll get there.  One step at a time.  🙂

This morning was a good morning.  I pulled out the Awful Waffle mix I made a while ago from the freezer and baked up three waffles — one and half each for Sam and me.  Yum.  The mix seemed to do better than the last time when it got stuck in the iron and then split apart.  This ickky incident is how it earned the name Awful Waffles.

Much better, eh?  I ate mine with a little bit of REAL butter and REAL maple syrup.  Coffee with organic half and half rounded out the meal nicely.  I love coffee.

The monsters took me for a walk around the neighborhood.  We covered about 2 miles and soaked up the sunshine and checked out the ‘hood.  We have an active little community.  Kids getting on the bus, parents leaving for work, retired peeps doing their retired thang.  What do they do all day? 😉  I guess I’ll just have to wait another 40 years before I can answer that question.

The walk put me in such a good head space all I could think about for lunch was my favorite summertime salad:

Spinach, strawberries, chopped walnuts and hardboiled egg whites dressed in EVOO and balsamic vinegar.  Try it some time.  It’s best chilled.  It will change your salad world.

Sliced peppers with salsa for dipping on the side…

Who says only tortilla chips get to take the plunge?!

A banana begging to be eaten and a Golden Delicious apple in much better standing.

and this yogurt with Cascadian Farms granola has 4 o’clock snack written all over it!

Lunch photo shoot in the backyard — lunch eaten at work.  Booooo.

I’m going to hang on to this good mood as long as I can today.  Ever notice how sometimes you have to work harder to keep a good mood than to be dumped into a bad one?

Why is that?  😉

Hope you have a good mood kind of a day and turn some of those dreams into goals.  You’re the only one who knows exactly what they are!
