Stand up to Cancer

This Sunday is stand up to cancer Sunday for NASCAR. I will be watching the race in support of Sharon Betson and also making a donation in Sharon’s name. 

I became aware of this movement because of my love for NASCAR and knowing one of the best reporters for NASCAR Steve Byrnes is having a hard fought battle with cancer.  When I found out Sharon had breast cancer, my heart hurt as this is one of my best friends wife’s and I knew it would not be easy on Rick and the family. I did not know how to help and still don’t really besides checking in by text or letting them know I am hear for them if they need anything.  Then NASCAR and Fox Sports came up with this “I Stand Up For” campaign and I knew this is just one very small way I can show my support to the Betson family and to help find cures to cancer.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Happy Birthday to me is all I can think about today. Sure I worked 20 hours on my 31st birthday, but who cares really. I weight myself for the first time in 3 weeks and I am under 240 pounds. It might only be 239 pounds, but who cares I am still under and that is all that maters.  I can’t even remember the last time I was this light. It would have to be 6 to 8 years ago if I had to put a time frame on it.

Even with not having the best diet the last couple of weeks with the schedule I have been on everything is still going the right way.  Diet is not everything in weight loss.  I have found the best way to simply stay active and get off your butt. I can’t even stand sitting for long periods of time any more, I have even been finding myself even getting up while watching a show and doing a lap around the living room and going up and down the steps a couple of times.

All I can think of is Happy Birthday to ME, I am feeling great and happy about who I am today.
