My attitude going into Monday morning

I've decided I'm going to have a good week. I insist. And I believe this is largely within my control.

The weekend was rather dreary, weather-wise. The Cubs lost one game in extra innings and the other was rained out. I had to work, so I didn't get as much done as I wanted to around the house. I hate how I look in the mirror these days -- too many chins! -- and I'm afraid I won't have opportunity to work out.

OR ...

Since it was unseasonably cool, I was able to keep the windows open. Yes, the Cubs lost one but it's a 160-game season and this team still has the best record in the major leagues (YEA!).  So I had to work. At least I didn't have to go into the office, I could work from home. I may not be able to get to the health club this week but I can return to Livestrong's Daily Plate and track what I jam into my gullet.

My anthem will be my favorite cut from Sir Paul's 2013 Grammy winning album. He's on tour again.  Over the weekend he performed "Blackbird" in Little Rock and met with members of the Little Rock 9 after the concert. He's living this, clearly, and so should I.
