21 Day Happiness Challenge – Day 16

21 Day Happiness Advantage Challenge - Day 16

Day 16 and it’s close to 16 degrees out, fancy. Let’s stay warm, and get into it:

3 New Things I Am Grateful For

1. I am grateful for Redbox. Cheap movies without having to go in a store and talk to anyone! Love it.

Redbox Meme

2. I am grateful for CloneDVD2. You know, so I can legally make backups of movies I already own… It’s purely coincidence that I’m grateful for this and Redbox on the same day. I swear.

Pirating Movies Meme

3. I am grateful for Sunglasses. Specifically cheap sunglasses, and more specifically cheap polarized sun glasses. Cheap because I lose them often. And polarized because did you know that polarized lenses make the reflection of your dashboard in your windshield go away? It’s awesome!


The more you know…

1 Positive Experience in the Past 24 Hours

Went to skateville tonight! I freakin love that place. It’s so much fun no matter how old you are! Weeeeeeeeeee. EJ tried rollerblades for the first time tonight, and loved them! He did very well. It was great to see him having such a great time with his buddy, Brody.

Did a good full body workout again today at the YMCA. Here’s how it went:

Rows – 4 sets of 10 reps
Back Flyes – 2 sets of 15 reps
Shoulder Press – 3 sets of 8 reps
Lateral Raises – 3 sets of 8 reps
Upright Rows – 1 set of 10 reps
Good Mornings – 4 sets of 8 reps
Curls – 3 sets of 10 reps
Weighted Crunches – 2 sets of 20 reps

Also threw in some warm up exercises, like jumping jacks, leg swings, etc. Also the skating at Skateville should probably count as exercise.


Kellan thinks I look like that guy. Do you?


I did my meditation in the hot tub at the YMCA again. It was just another 10 minute session. OK, so I pretty much ran through the headspace program in my head for this. The odd things is when I got to the part where the guy usually says “go ahead and let your thoughts come in and let them run wild” I couldn’t think of anything! Maybe that’s a good sign. Dunno.

Random Act of Kindness

Today the poem goes out to my softball buddy, Tom Johnson (AKA – Shoei). Here it is:


When you’re sliding into first
Wait a minute, who slides into that?
You’d probably give me hell
If I played with a wooden bat!

It’s a lot of fun playing
when you’re there coaching us
You inspire us with your speeches
Even when you feel you must cuss

Cheers to you, Shoei
On this chilly Saturday
Cheers to all D. Fongs players
Hip hip hooray!!

Thanks for always thinking of me for firemans, and for the team, Shoei! Have a great day!
