Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Day 182 - Saturday It Is

Lanie nailed the picture riddle from yesterday right away. It was a cutting board. When I saw that I figured I made it too easy. But then a bunch of different guesses came in and the fun continued... easy or hard, there will be another day for another riddle.

Friday was a better day - Thanks for all the encouraging words!

This morning I am about to go out with the boys, and my niece, and trek through some Wisconsin hillsides and get in some more deer hunting. Looking forward to a great day outdoors, fresh air, void of stress and full of laughs. Outdoor activities, such as hunting & fishing, or activities such as skiing or hiking or basketball... activities such as these are great opportunities to get in exercise that is fun and do it with family and friends.

Not all exercise needs to be in a gym or on a running track. Not all family time needs to be in front of a television. Mix it up, mix in the fun. Now by mixing it up, I don't suggest mixing up hunting with basketball. Bad, only bad will come from that. And fishing while skiing, not likely to go so well especially if snow skiing.

What fun do you have planned fro this weekend? The weather is supposed to be summer-like in many areas that should be feeling the chill of fall right now. Get out and play!

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. There is no way I would have figured out that riddle.

    Well for this weekend I was planning to do a little hunting while I shoot some hoops, but your wise words have me rethinking my agenda :)

  2. Awww,man..i guessed flooring. Nice cutting board though!

    Have a great time with your family today.
    No plans for us...may take the kids to the park

  3. Hope you have a successful hunting weekend.... relaxing weekend planned here!

  4. It's college football day for us. Then a long bike ride for me at mid-afternoon halftime. A beautiful day to be outdoors!

  5. Darn - I thought I had nailed it! ;)
    Incorporating fitness with everyday fun activities is my favourite way to get my heart rate up. I'm going for a big hike with my husband and our dog today before heading to a soccer game. Enjoy the weather!

  6. Never would have figured that. I've never seen a cutting board like that :) Have a great weekend!

  7. Love mixing it up! AND here in southern CA we are getting cooler weather for us which is a nice break from some heat we just had....

    ENJOY! I will be having my treat cookie! :-)

  8. This morning I spent 3 hours in a tree stand in freezing cold. Relaxing for the afternoon while hubby pheasant hunts and then we'll go back out to the deer woods tonight. :)

  9. Hey, wait! Just because *I* guessed it right away, that makes it "too easy"? I'll have you know that I am smarter than the average bear! hmph!
