Getting stronger, an inch at a time

Gym lockers
This may be the last week i wear a sweatshirt to walk to the gym. For the next seven months, the morning low is unlikely to dip below 70 degrees.

Getting stronger, an inch at a time. 

Being a distance runner in flat terrain doesn’t make your legs strong. Yes, you gain leg stamina, but leg strength is acquired differently.

Muscle strength is helpful at all ages, and especially advantageous in your post-50 years.

Without stressing out about it or pushing myself, i’ve slowly and steadily increased what used to be my maximum weight on the final of three sets of 10 leg curls to the first set’s weight.

Stay healthy, have fun

Mid Life Celebration books
Stumbled on this photo…it speaks to me in this writing moment.

Stay healthy, have fun.

Two challenging lifetime goals.

Having fun is no fun when you are injured.

If you don’t know what i’m talking about, you will, but only if you are lucky.

Lesson learned the easy way

skin treatments
Yesterday we zapped three small spots and one larger spot, all on forehead.

Lesson learned the easy way.

 What?

Was thinking that bi-annual (every 6 months) dermatology skin checkups are overkill.

Once a year should be fine.

Six months ago, no pre-cancerous areas.

Yesterday, four.

Physical time and resources are always scarce

biking near Disney World
Last night, heading to dinner near Disney University.

Physical time and resources are always scarce.

On a 1-10 scale with 10 as high, how physically bold are you planning to be in 2019?

Counting the score from MLC, how close to 20 are you?

Autopilot strengthens physical habits and rituals

Small town water tower
Yesterday in Eatonville, from the Macedonia Missionary Church parking lot.

You can’t solve your health problems challenges tomorrow when you are on autopilot; repeating what you did yesterday.

Talking about your personal health right now, as CEO of You, Inc.

But.

Autopilot.

Gets.

In.

The.

When you look at where you’ve been and compare that to where you are now, changing your wellness habits and rituals has changed everything.

And you can see the example or the warning that other people in your life offer you.
