Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : Naked Ladies, Hard Bodies and Bodies in Motion

Naked Ladies, Hard Bodies and Bodies in Motion

Naked Ladies, Hard Bodies and Bodies in Motion Moving Toward Being The Biggest Winner

As we grow older our bodies will become flabby and it doesn't want to move.  When we were younger we weren't embarrassed about showing our bodies off to anybody that would care to look.  Hence the bikini, what there is of it nowadays, muscle shirts or no shirt at all!!

On the TV series The Biggest Loser they have several people that will keep everyone moving.  One of those people is Alison Sweeney.  I kinda think of her as my office manager, in a manner of speaking.  Stop and think about it for just a minute, Alison does the end of week weigh in, meets the participants at their terrain challenge, doles out the different prizes won during the week and sends people packing after they have been voted off of the ranch.  My office manager is like that, he keeps me on track when I am down making sure that I am doing what I need to be doing and keeping me on track.  He gives me my check when they are ready and ask when the next one will be coming in, what a prize this is. And he sends people packing when needed.

I have found that as long as my body keeps moving it doesn't have a chance to get flabby and beaten down by negative chatter around the office coffee pot.  You know how that chatter goes, Oh have you see that smarty pants agent bragging about how many closings they have had this month.  They are always doing something to make us jealous.  Gosh, what are they doing that we aren't?  They just make me sooooo mad!!

The HARD BODIED, NAKED TRUTH IS if I am going to be a winner at the end of the day this body needs to be in motion doing something all day.  It needs to be exercised on a regular basis.  I know when I exercise and do the things that I am supposed to do I sure feel better at the end of the day.  And so does the wife when the prize $$$ comes in.  Now momma is happy and so am I.

Thank you Mr./Mrs. Office Manager for keeping me on task to make sure I will be the BIGGEST WINNER!!

Don:  I had NO idea where you were going with this from the title!!  Very true though--we must stay active (actively working our business) and share the bare, naked truth with our clients (in contrast to the media's negativity) and STAY AWAY from the negative chit chat at the office that brings everyone down!  You ARE a winner, Don and I know that Mama is certainly HAPPY!

I went for a mid day walk and run and it felt good. I feel good and do feel like a winner!

Don...

Don - I am not the go to the gym type but I exercise 5-7 days a week, religiously. It became a habit. I wake up, have my tea, and I throw in an exercise DVD (severals I keep around) and I go for 30-45 minutes of aerobic workout. Actually, I call this my mind work out. When my body feels good, I feel good. It took me a while to get to this point and it sure feels good.

Debe,

I was wondering about the title myself.  Then I said what the heck and went with it.  I guess it is like the media, get it to bleed and then it will lead.

We do need to stay in motion and run the race everyday or we will turn to flab and start the coffee pot chatter.

Chuck,

Isn't exercise a wonderful thing?

Richard,

Thank you my friend.  Keep on moving and things will begin to improve.

Ellie,

At least you have a discipline and follow it.  Keep on moving!!

Posted by Don Rogers, Realtor, Broker, CDPE, GRI, OnullFallon MO & St Charles County MO homes (Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield) about 11 years ago

Push, push, push and push some more, until you break on thru to the other side. (Doors).

Never stop moving, a real estate agent is like a shark(not in a vicious sense) they must keep on moving or they die.

Richard,

I had forgotten about the shark analogy but you are so right.  We need to keep moving.

Don, Sounds like you have a Office Manager who understands the program and the Broker should be grateful as well. Big Kudos when the agents give recognition for a job well done.

I didn't read your blog. I'm just here to sip on a pina colada & stare at the smoking hot babe in the bikini...

Terry,

I do push ups and walk. Push up to get my rear end out of the chair and walk to the fridge and get another beer.  Sit down, repeat, sit down, repeat.............:-))

Greg,

You had better stop that or I'll tell your wife!!!  It's not polite to stare..

Mel,

I didn't mean to make you mad by using your picture, please not 20 again.  You keep this up and I am gonna look like the dude in the picture.  Could I just do 2?

Fred,

Thank you sir, I have been thinking I should have kept the visuals out of this post!

Don - can't stand the office coffee, have my own coffee maker in my office, not a lot of chatter anyway. I do need to exercise more, a little more "in motion", both literally and figuratively. Thanks.

Posted by Mike Saunders (Lanier Partners) about 11 years ago

Mike,

I am with you sir on the "in motion".  I do get out and walk about a mile a day.  Thank you sir for stopping in and commenting this morning.

Ok, so I kinda got stuck on the blue bikini for a second there but then I got busy reading.  Great message.  We can either sit and say woe is me all day or we can get off our butts and make something happen.

 

Posted by Jesse & Kathy Clifton, Retired (Jesse Clifton & Associates, REALTORS®) almost 11 years ago

Jesse,

We do need to make something happen in our business or for sure something will happen and we won't be in business very long.

Always a pleasure to hear form you sir.
