Teen obesity in America
One of the last articles i read last night.


Teen obesity in America


Woke up this morning at 156 pounds.

Feels awesome.

Dinner last night was a medium Twistee Treat soft serve ice cream cone on the way home from the audio-visual check and arrival-day conference reception.

It was too late to eat a regular dinner, yet i needed something to fill an empty belly.

Obesity is on the rise

Obesity is on the rise. Saw the headline a few days ago. Didn’t save the link.

Should i have saved it? Do we really need the article to believe obesity is rising?

Just take our own historic wellness habits.

Ask, “Am i at a healthy, vibrant weight? Am i struggling to simple stay where i am (and where i am isn’t close to optional)? Am i losing my grip and traveling down a slow and steady path to an ever increasing weight?”




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

What's Our Obligation?

Who’s fault is it anyway?

Who taught us excuses?

Who taught us shortcuts?

Who taught us to use good judgement?

Doesn’t matter once we become an adult out on our own, because it’s our responsibility now.

Each of us is CEO of You, Inc.

Life is hard. It’s your job to put in the effort to figure it out.

Helen Keller had it much tougher than any of us. And she said:

Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world. – Helen Keller

This video is as powerful as those graphic “here’s what can happen when you text and drive” videos, just not as graphic.



My book asks 50 powerful questions. They are simple and easy “yes or no” questions.

My life changed when i got 50 yeses.

Health Matters

Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger, hidden problem?

Once in a while we stumble upon something truly remarkable.

Long standing traditional medical beliefs coupled with an intelligent, and authentic (doctor) presenter.

I know how busy everyone is (me too)… yet this 16-minute TED MED video is captivating on three deep levels:

  1. challenging medical ‘certainty’
  2. as a remarkable presenter
  3. as an authentic human being

This message humbles me.



Note: Further investigation led me to the comment thread from this TED MED video. Some folks thought completely differently than me – as if Peter was scamming. And I must say, his claim of exercising hard four hours a day with a day job is questionable (not impossible, but it did sound too good to be true).
