What's Our Obligation?

No exercise yesterday, but also no desserts

The entire day was themed around Disney.

Part of an organizational pep-rally yesterday.

 

No exercise yesterday, but also no desserts.

However, i did stand for at least eight hours, had a greatly reduced food intake, and spoke like i meant it yesterday.

Dinner was light as well.

Most middle-class Americans consume far too many daily calories.

So in the absence of traditional exercise, the standing and reduced calorie intake feels like a decent day physically – except for getting only five hours of sleep last night.

No one outside of Disney wants to believe this

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Mastery, or perceived mastery, only comes from being intentional where others are unintentional or oblivious.

 

Somewhere around 2003, i remember Lenn Millbower and Debbie Zmorenski – two passionate Disney Institute colleagues – were having a breakroom conversation about the Atkins diet.

Neither of them included me in their conversation.

i asked them why they didn’t involve me.

They said, “You don’t need to worry about your weight.”

i humbly replied, “i worry about my weight every day, maybe that’s why it seems i don’t.”

PS. Mary Flynn – one of Disney Institute’s all-time great storytellers, a colleague, author, and wise friend – is the originator of the original version of the quote above. i added the word “hard” to her original version, so i can’t take any credit for the original vibe. i will suggest, however, that i was the catalyst for making it a household phrase at Disney Institute.

Impossible Is For Amateurs

Eat what you want whenever you want

Orlando motivational speaker
What if you can eat whenever you are hungry? Snack as much as you want. Is it possible?

 

Eat what you want whenever you want.

Snack on these things in between meals…

Fruits.

Vegetables.

Nuts.

What if literally, everything we ate had no more than five ingredients?

Health Matters

Enough already, stop

Parkland High students ion Time Magazine
Enough of the poor eating. Take a stand. Eliminate poor foods. For good. Photo from Twitter yesterday.

 

In two more clicks you’ll be at jungle jeff – the work blog – and when you get there you’ll see a post more closely themed to here, Lane 8.

The reason the content is there and not here is simple.

While i compartmentalize mind-body-spirit-work-hq in five distinct website blogs, the reality is quite compelling – everything we do influences everything else we do.

Meanwhile, this morning’s thought here is this: i’m eating like i mean it to improve my health.

Which is the paradox of “diets to lose weight to be more healthy”. Diets require unattractive restrictions, unnatural eating habits, avoidance of certain foods you have loved eating your entire life, like sweets.

i gave up processed sugar but i did not give up sweets.

What the?

Fresh fruits.

i eat a ton of it, daily.

Wrong

“Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.”

healthy lunch
After a great workout, and before a client visit at Epcot, a power lunch.

 

A friend at the gym asked, “Did you bike today?”

“Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.”

i’ve told him this before, and don’t expect him to remember nor care.

“About an hour to the gym and an hour home.”

Ike stated (not in the form of a question), “So you can eat anything you want.”

Smiling, i spontaneously replied, “Yes, but i only eat the good stuff. Food is fuel.”

He never saw that coming.

Most don’t.

To exercise so you can splurge with unhealthy food choices and quantities?

Seriously?

Yeah, i used to think that way.

For decades.
