How Much Is Enough?

Can’t lift heavy things or won’t?

Finished this movie recently. Not sure why i took the photo, unless it illustrates that the end begins when we stop taking care of ourselves physically.

Can’t lift heavy things or won’t?

We all have the same answer.

Won’t.

We all say, “Won’t”, even if we don’t say it.

We say it with our inaction.

(Of course there are exceptions. Do you have arms and can you move them? Ok, so you are not an exception.)

  • Leg curls:
  • Yesterday: 2×10/70,80 2×6/90
  • 1 year ago: 3×10/60,70,70
  • 2 years ago: 3×10/30,40,50

Pro tip: Measure what you do, because you cannot improve what you do not measure.

Eating too much

Stumbled upon this older photo yesterday. It caught my eye knowing tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

Eating too much on Thanksgiving day has long been an American tradition.

A bountiful harvest.

A ton of gratitude.

Coming together to celebrate.

Nothing wrong with this except one thought.

Why do we eat to the point of discomfort?

Having done this for decades, i’m now in a place where it fascinates me as i avoid doing it at all costs.

What foods have you let go of?

Last night. Our honeymoon was a multi-week bicycle trip across Washington State. We bought this dining set soon after. So long ago that these are neither dishwasher safe nor microwaveable safe.

What foods have you let go of?

Cool, and congrats.

What else is on your “endangered species” list?

Fast food?

Cookies?

Doughnuts?

Good.

Eventually we learn there are many old things that no longer serve us well.

These seven are yours

Climbing this far up Mt. Reynolds when the original goal this day was simply to walk around the base to get used to the notion of taking the risk to climb it in the next few weeks.

Do not get used to neglecting these seven, instead, get used to paying them the attention they deserve. You were born to move. Assuming you are able-bodied, you were born to manage these seven.

Like a broken record, everyday, never get bored with the basics:

  1. Cardio
  2. Strength
  3. Nutrition
  4. Rest
  5. Flexibility
  6. Core
  7. Motivation

Never. Get. Bored.

With. The. Basics.

It can add up quickly

Was a Guest on Jody Maberry’s podcast two days ago and he shared what we did in 5 days n Glacier National Park. The first number is for steps taken. Flights up also equals flights down – in case it wasn’t obvious.

It can add up quickly.

The number of days, months, years that you consistently stay active.

Same with the number that you don’t.

Risk!

What’s the first thing you think of?

Totally a risk.

And an opportunity.

The only failure is staying inactive.
