Tuesday 7/7/15 Father & Daughter Take A Walk Together Day
I awoke, did some deep relaxation, walked to Huyler Park and participated in the free Qi Gong class offered by BWOM. It will take me a while to sufficiently relax my muscles to flow with the movements, but the energy work is coming much easier. I walked home and performed my remaining routines. My day's work complete, I experimented with, and started reviewing, the Shake Weight exerciser. In the evening, I attended tonight's Summer Concert in Huyler Park, which was truly wonderful, and got a chance to chat with Carl Trop, Chief Wellness Advocate of the Tenafly Mayors Wellness Campaign. Thank you Mayor Rustin for the awesome concert! A leisurely walk home. Now for my nightly routines...

Wednesday 7/1/15
Though I have been re-aquainting myself with the finer points of the Charles Atlas  ® exercise system for days, this morning I officially began the course. Lesson One's Chest exercises will be performed twice daily until the end of the program. This is indeed fortunate as I really enjoy performing them. Fine tuning my diet remains an ongoing process. Much to my chagrin, I discovered that I seem to have recently developed sensitivities to some of my heretofore 'safe' dietary choices.

My daily recruiting for potential Conspirators for the Mayors Wellness Campaign went extremely well. I am excited to have met with Gavin and Linda Armstrong, owners of Shukokai Karate and Pure Love Energy. Both of them are deeply commited to wellness and to helping with the rebirth of an even healthier Tenafly.

Here's some proof of their commitment:

With the Armstrongs. Linda and Gavin

Thursday 7/2/15 Tenafly Fireworks Celebration
My second day went extremely well. My twice-daily exercises and meditations centered and energized me. I also got alot accomplished. I attended a fun Rotary Club meeting, met with a new friend to dream up a better future, encountered some of my favorite Tenafly residents, spent some quality time with my family, visited a dear friend and participated in the Tenafly Fireworks Celebration. Good times...

Friday 7/3/15
I felt a bit sluggish and slow on awakening, but performing my morning routines quickly got me feeling alert and strong. Went busily about my day and dreamed some very powerful dreams while en route from place to place. I got the chance to visit Charles Atlas ® HQ and eat a flavorful meal (souvlaki & salad) at Yasou Mykonos. 

Saturday 7/4/15 Independence Day
Worked on my numerous projects, caught up on my correspondence and spent some time at Charles Atlas ® HQ. The day sped by very, very fast - too fast. Nonetheless, my exercise and meditation times were honored and I felt great afterwards. Athena's Garden is looking great!

Sunday 7/5/15
Still busy with my many projects, began a new phase in my Solar Quest and made my Olympian Solar Chariot Meditation a twice-daily practice to help keep me focused. My standard morning meditation went exceedingly well, and I kept exercising long after I had completed Lesson One's Chest and foundational exercises. Athena is ready to join the Quest, enhancing our town's (and her own) overall wellness through her creative gardening. By Zeus' Beard, look at the time! Where did the day go? Time to start my nightly routines, then off to the Dream Realms!

Monday 7/6/15 International Kissing Day
I started the day with my now-habitual physical, mental and spiritual routines. and I felt more than ready to meet the challenges before me! The day passed quickly and I accomplished almost everything on my to-do list, including spending some quality time with my immediate family. The day ended as it began: with Charles Atlas ®, my Olympian Sun-Chariot Meditation and 20-30 minutes of relaxing Alpha brain-wave activity.
