Besides Diet & Exercise

Dear Perfection

This is no laughing matter…

We are not interested in the perfect body, perfect weight, perfect size. We just want to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, exercise regularly, eat sensibly and get adequate rest.

If food is fuel, not medication, then exercise ought to be welcomed, not avoided.

None of this is easy. Recall yesterday, you didn’t feel like running? Day before that, too tired for the gym?

But you did them anyway. Sometimes it’ll feel like work. Get used to it.

Are your 2010 Health and Fitness goals still burning inside you?

Or has the fire of your resolution started to cool?

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?


Motivational Secret @ Lane 8

Want the secret to staying motivated?

We already know most people can find reason to get motivated.

The real secret is staying motivated.  Did you hear that?  Did it sink in?  STAYING motivated!

You must, repeat must, find a reason bigger than yourself to do what’s common sense.

Exercise, nutrition, and rest are key health strategies.  They are common sense.  They are not common practice.

Why?  Because there is always an easier choice to make.  And, you already know what it is.  You don’t need anyone to remind you.
