Here we go...again
A new year, bowl games, resolutions...blah, blah, blah. Although I have a terrific life and wonderful friends and family, I feel as if I am in a rut. I have carried 10+ extra pounds for the past year and have only slightly improved my paddling skills. I need to get it in gear and challenge myself...and grow.

I will continue lecturing pathophysiology at UWM but will be teaching only basic anatomy & physiology at WCTC. The new schedule will not require waking early in the am, although I do that anyway. I need, therefore to make better use of my time.
 Winter makes it hard for me to get the exercise I desperately need. With only one good leg, I cannot run, ski, cross country ski or even snow shoe. I have a treadmill, rowing machine and Aerodyne bike in the basement which I have done an exceptional job of ignoring. Change is over due.

So, here come the silly resolutions of Silbs (srS): 1. I will get into the exercise equipment described above and stored below (notice how nicely vague that is). 2. I will paddle Lake Michigan when ever weather and my schedule permits. 3. I will attend the pool sessions whenever my schedule permits. 4. I will challenge myself in a new way to become a better paddler. I have already placed this in motion but choose not to go into detail at this time.
Finally, I will locate the disc for PhotoShoop so I can load it onto the new computer. This will allow me to stop recycling old pics. Happy new year.

Paddle safe...
