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 457-458: In Heat Monday

Good weekend for me, hope yours was good as well. Some of my highlights...

As noted already my wife & I started our weekend with a date night & saw Winnie The Pooh movie which I have renamed appropriately The Eeyore Movie. Best line from the movie, "Send the Pig." -Roo

Did C25K-W1D1, felt great.

Brunch w/ Mom. Gave her a gift from Hawaii; Koa wood wine stoppers. She gave me my birthday gift; Bass Pro gift card which I'll use towards my hunting license; sweet!.

Saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Should rename this film to "HP7, The Rise of Neville Longbottom". We went at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, my wife & I were the youngest in the theatre by at least 10 years, kind of funny.

Grilled a delicious Garlic-Dill Halibut fillet. OMG it was so good.

Went to see son play in a soccer camp, on way home we got some ice cream because y'day was national ice cream day; I went with pretzel-marshmallow ice cream! Thankfully it wasn't liverwurst day.

Listened to the world cup game on radio, what a let down that was. You are welcome Japan!

Wife downloaded all of the Hawaii pictures from the cameras. Up top there you see one of them, our deep sea fishing trip results; 2 mahi-mahi (left) and 3 skipjack tuna (right).

Monday is here & so is the heat wave. Bring it on I say, but please let the power stay on. Today we get to better ourselves in any & every way we choose. How cool is that?

For me that means doing C25K-W1D2 after work. Going to drag our youngest son with me, he jiggles more than he ought to.

What about you, at days end how will you be better than when you woke up?

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. Heat waves in droves - stay cool!
    I am glad I can handle the heat a little better!
    Less jiggling is a good thing!

  2. Sounds like you had a great weekend, Patrick! Love the pictures! I can't wait to see the Eeyore movie when it comes out on video! :-) Or maybe we'll be silly and sneak our Eeyores into the theater to watch with us. We've done that before.

  3. Love the pic!

    OK, so I already went to the gym so better than when I woke up - right! :-)

    Great weekend for you! I so want to see HP & I LOVE Winnie the Pooh!

  4. I am in a mountain cabin in my hometown of Nederalnd, Colorado. My day will end better than it started because I will watch the sun set over snow covered peaks, to sounds of nature -- not cars.

    Oh, and I though Eeyore was a TaB drinker....

  5. Hopefully, I will have my homework done.

  6. Oh man! I saw the new Harry Potter was awesome. I love your new title for it too!


  7. By this day's end I will have worked some of this soreness out of my legs and hip joints. Too much weekend running. I need to do the smart thing and start small. ;-)

    Love the fishing trip pic!

  8. I like the idea that today we get to better ourselves. I'm going to remember that.

  9. I finally managed to walk with my walking group! First time since surgery :)
    Love the pic

  10. Pretzel-marshmallow ice cream?! Might have to visit the USA just for that! Yummy!

  11. This is my first time visiting your blog, and I love the vibe here. I have said this very same thing to four other blogs today, but that doesn't diminish the truth in it. :) How did I end this day better than I began it? I tapped into the beauty of life and I boldly and courageously lived my way to my dreams! I chose healthy over "blah." :) Have a great week!! Janelle
