Stay Motivated, Stay Healthy

Stay Motivated, Stay Healthy.

If it were easy, everybody would be doing it.  But it isn’t easy.

This is the part that confuses me.  If we know exercise is good for us, and that our overall situation improves with exercise and reasonable eating habits, why do so few engage in it?

A top theory I have – people lack the courage to do the hard things. Like think about the consequences. And, there’s way too much codependency.

Editor’s note:  I struggle with this as much or more than you. Everyone does.  So quit feeling sorry for yourself.  I have.

Heres my secret:

“If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.

Basically, the hidden meaning is this – we need to be motivated for something bigger than ourselves.  Period.

The next progression to fulfill Lane 8’s vision is firmly in place. Stay tuned as the story continues.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Blah, blah, blah?

Blah, blah, blah?

Nope.

Dream Big.  Get There.  Stay There.

That’s what Lane 8 is about.   Staying there.

Ran into a Father of my son’s classmate, at the gym yesterday.

I asked, “What motivates you”?

He replied, with an apparent wisdom, that he has found it more difficult, now that he’s almost 30, to stay in shape and keep his weight ideal.

Please forgive me for thinking this, but all I could think of was, “You really think that you’re going to stay fit and at an ideal weight for the rest of your life”?

“Dude”, I wanted to say, “You have no idea what is ahead of you, but I can predict one thing for sure.  If you think it’s hard now, imagine it 10 years from now, or 20 years from now when you’re almost 50”.

How do I know?

Because I turn 50 in three weeks.  I’ve got 20 years of “wisdom and mistakes” on him.  That’s how I know.

Wisdom comes from experience, and experience comes from making mistakes.

I should be the wisest man on Earth, eh?  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

97.5 (I think)

Nice easy run this morning, not even two miles.  Why?  Not enough time in the day to do everything, eh?

Early yesterday was a good five-miler, plus later, got in a 75-minute gym/core workout.  So no worries today.

Remember, rest is your friend.  Slothfulness, no.  Rest.  Indeed.  

How big are your dreams?  Hey, you don’t have to prove anything to me.  Yourself maybe, but not me.  Peace to you and your life, your dreams and all you hold dear.  Thanks for visiting and hope you’ll follow alomg and find some sort of nudge, motivation, challenge, whatever.   Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
