Without exercise

First three days here, still no sun.

Without exercise we can still be 100% engaged with wellness.

There are still other areas of focus.

No exercise, no problem.

Focus on sleep. Bedtime. Total hours.

Focus on nutrition. Balanced. Fresh. Portion control. Snacking.

Focus on motivation. You know, the stuff that gives you the power to make the best decisions even when, especially when, you would rather cave to less desirable choices.

Active rest

Active rest.

It’s a thing.

Will engage in it all week.

Island time.

How Much Is Enough?

Your body is not whispering, stop for good

Colon cancer is almost always curable when caught early. Early and common generally don’t travel together.

Today at the gym, i decided to use the visit entirely for stretching.

Intentionally took a break from strength exercises.

Why?

My body was whispering in my ear that it would be helpful.

So i listened.

PS. Wrote this post after the four mile roundtrip walk to the gym. Also, there were a few decades in my life where i thought my body was whispering, “You don’t need to worry about being active. No one else does.”

Buzz Worthy? Glacier National Park

100% on the second workout

A typical hike in Glacier is 10 miles with 2,000′ gain and 2,000′ descent.

Not sure why i was able to do the same thing i did over five weeks ago.

You take a break that long and you have to lose something – maybe even a lot.

Not this time.

The only difference is that while i missed going to a gym, i did not miss staying vibrantly active outdoors.

In the past, missing two weeks at the gym and it was almost like starting over. From this historical experience, i created a “no more than 10 days without a gym workout” rule.

At 10 days or less away, i was able to pick up exactly where i left off.

Final 120 Days

Enjoy active rest

Disney Keynote Speaker
It’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic.

Enjoy active rest.

Yesterday, Saturday, and today are intentional breaks from exercise.

Knowing i’ll away from home for five days makes tomorrow morning’s workout a valuable and highly anticipated one.

Son, sometimes working out can feel like a treat.
