How do you guage your health?

car dashboard gauges
From our rental car a few days ago.

How do you guage your health?

What metrixcs do you use?

How often do you look at your gauges?

Are you happy with your answers?

There is only one correct answer (pass/fail if you will), “Yes!”.

Four months until college.

Find your own reasons for becoming passionate about your health.

Why?

You will be surrounded by people who do not think like this.

The peer-pressure will be overwhelming.

Stay up late. Eat daily desserts. Fries instead of veggies. Soda instead of milk or water. Play video games instead of going for a run and the gym. Etc. Etc.

PS. You will be in a unique position to influence and inspire others by your personal example. You can become the teacher.

Besides Diet & Exercise

Annual blood draw this morning

Walt Disney picking up trash
Walt was never a picture of excellent health. Not judging. And each of us has to decide what efforts we are committed to physically.

Annual blood draw this morning. Annual physical two days ago. 

Yesterday and tomorrow, cardio, strength, stretching, and core.

Every day this week, every day period, focus on nutrition, sleep, and motivation, in addition to cardio, strength, flexibility, and core.

Dear Son

Twelve weeks in, holding at 8 mailboxes

Rest and relaxation on a college hammock, two days ago.

 

Twelve weeks in, holding at 8 mailboxes.

Two laps around a high school track.

After three months.

Traditional metrics have us as failures.

What do you mean you’re only jogging for two laps?

Listen up mister, the real metric you should be celebrating is we are showing up for our 12th consecutive week – at 5:15AM and 6:15AM.

Health Is Wealth

What if our Doctor gave us a health report card?

Let your report card be the health test results from your annual checkups.

And pop quizzes can be the blood pressure readings and heart rate checks you get at medical appointments – or the pharmacy blood pressure station.

How Much Is Enough?

You know how people can tell if you’re committed to wellness?

Disney Springs
Disney Springs yesterday.

 

Disney movies
We watched A Wrinkle In Time yesterday at Disney’s AMC Theater complex at Disney Springs.

 

Let your wellness light shine brightly.

You are a beacon for others.

You are so deserving of the vibrancy you feel.

You find solace in your commitment to over-focus on your wellness compared to the way you used to under-focus on it, or ignore it completely.

You know how people can tell if you’re committed to wellness?

The same way people can tell if a business is committed to their wellness.

Metrics.

Basic business measurements.

In this case, it’s health metrics instead of business metrics.

The basics..

Resting heart rate.

Cholesterol.

Triglycerides.

Blood pressure.

Touch your toes.

How many pull ups, push ups, and sit ups can you do?

Walk 4-5 flights of stairs – how soon does your heart rate return to normal.

Do you lose your patience easily?

What are the main beverages you consume daily?

Do you use a snooze button to wake up?

How many calories do you get daily from processed foods?

How many grams of sugar do you consume daily?

How much water do you consume daily?

When was the last time you exercised consistently for five continuous years?

The list goes on and on.

You get the picture.

i never mentioned weight.

Why would i?

It doesn’t matter what a person weighs..

What matters are answers to the questions here.
