Shot this short (17 seconds) You Tube video while in Anchorage, Alaska a few days ago. Even though I take my work very seriously, I desperately try not to take myself to seriously. Can you relate?
Not as in running, jogging, sprinting. On the run as in a hurry.
Spent four days in Anchorage, Alaska and did not exercise. Not by choice.
Got back late last night early this morning. There is no exercising this morning either. Five straight days without exercise. I feel the pain of everyone who struggles to make physical wellness a priority.
There is no easy way.
Well, actually, there is an easy way – simply don’t worry about it until the phone rings, “Excuse me, it’s for you. It’s your wake up call”.
Wellness Challenge? Today. Tomorrow. Next week. Next month. Next year.
Huh? Exactly. I need to remind myself of this every single day.
Wellness – physical well being – is not something that I can take lightly. Most people understand this. And yet, the pressures of our lives can make it so challenging to be well, that we succumb to the pressure.
What happens next? We all know the answer to this, don’t we?
So, knowing the answer, what are we going to do about it? What am I gonna do about it? What are you going to do about it? Today, I mean. Seriously.
What will your wellness challenge be today? Carpe diem.
Lane 8 is gaining weight. Why? You really wanna know?
For the same reasons everyone (mostly) gains weight.
This is why I think it’s so important to focus on our health goals everyday. In a matter of a few days or a couple weeks, I can gain enough weight to notice a change.
We are taught to embrace change, where I’m from. And change is really the only constant. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
But I have to tell ya, I hate gaining weight. If it were easy to not gain weight, we’d all have one less thing to worry about now wouldn’t we? Let’s be healthy, and strong, today. Ya with me?
As a general rule, there is no running when it’s below 32 degrees. Call me a light-weight.
