Everyone Needs a Minion

Recently a pair of local talk radio hosts made some shortsighted comments on the air about cyclists and they apologized for it, on the air and on Facebook. The responses to the apology on Facebook were insensitive, at best. They talked a lot about weight issues and it brought to mind what Today I Can is supposed to be about, a minion attitude, as opposed to my personal nemesis, the Icant. If this doesn't make any sense, read the article and to those hosts, I am sorry, you are not who they said you were. I hope this helps.

One of the tougher things I have found in trying to lead a healthier lifestyle is rebounding from a bad decision or from a period where I can't exercise. Sometimes it's related to injury, or weather or just life making me busy. I hate those times, I really do but rebounding is part of the deal.

Roller Coasters and Corny Dogs

I came up with a counter argument to the Not Fair claim that my kids often deployed when life dealt them something they deemed unfair, it was one both my kids hated which made it very effective because eventually they quit saying Not Fair. I just told them this, “you know ... life is not fair. In fact it's so unfair that they made a special day called Fair Day that only comes once a year. On Fair Day, they close down school and you get to go downtown, ride roller coasters and eat corny dogs but today is not that day, it's Not Fair Day. So while I realize it's not fair, there is nothing I can do about it, my hands are tied.” 

A tough lesson for me to learn as well as my kids it turns out.
