Maybe It's Impossible

It’s Up To You

It’s a choice, every day.

It’s your choice.

It’ll always be your choice.

Life gets so busy.

It tempts us.

It pressures us.

To think we have no choice.

I do. We do. You do.


It’s up to you.


Did Ja?

After reading yesterday’s Lane 8 blog post, did you think long and hard about your health?

Let me guess, “No.”

What motivates you at work?  At home?

What demotivates you at work? At home?

You can use your answers to figure it out.  And that’s the bottom line isn’t it?

Figure it out!

No one is going to hold your hand.  You are an adult, fully and completely responsible for your health.


Late yesterday, I was on the phone with a great friend. We spoke for nearly 30 minutes about really significant, life “stuff”.  He’s a great listener, and he allows me to verbalize dreams, goals.

I dream of you being healthier than you are now. And doing whatever it takes to be your catalyst for positive change.

Almost 51, I practice what I preach.  Take a look. This was two days ago. How many 51 year olds can do this?


Why Don’t You Care?

We say we care, but we don’t really mean it.

If we cared, we’d figure out a way.

While I’m talking about our health, this really applies to everything.

Oh no, looks like I have a lot of work to do.


Masters Track?

Yes, Masters Track.

What do you do to stay motivated to reach and maintain your health goals?

Master’s athletes are defined as people over 30 years old.

There are other sports that have Masters competitions too.  The thought of trying something completely out of my comfort zone actually seems possible – at a future time, of course.


Because the whole point of the competition, to me, is simply to find ways to stay motivated.  When things get boring, I get less motivated.

This is a deadly place to be, literally.

Someday. maybe swimming.  Or perhaps I’ll try Filed events, like the Discus, Shot Put, or, heaven forbid, the Pole Vault.

Whatever it takes.  That’s one of the secrets to staying healthier.  I figure everybody knows this, but it never hurts to say important things over and over.

Does it?



Hello Lane 8 readers.  It’s 3:30PM here in Central Florida.  It’s also Friday.  Woo-hoo!

However, I’m sick and just woke up.  There may be a post here later today, but it’s doubtful.  Need to fall back to sleep.

Sleep is a great painkiller.

For now, thank you for visiting and wishing you a great Friday, full of good health and a good workout, and good choices with your food, and your rest.

Workouts are anything that challenges you to use your body at least a little more than usual.  As simple as parking in the back of the parking lot versus the front.
