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.”

Health Blogs

You Can Do It
You Can Do It

There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-million blogs on the Internet, and growing daily.

There are 221-million results if you Google “Health Blogs”.

What are all these health-blog people trying to say? Please let me summarize for you:

  1. Dream Big
  2. Get There
  3. Stay There

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

PS. Do your excuses make you stop or make you sick? Mine made me sick. Sick to think that I’m the only one responsible for my actions and I wasn’t doing anything about it, except making excuses.

Excuses be damned.

Gold’s Gym and Lane 8

USA Team Jersey...Priceless
USA Team Jersey...Priceless

Last night at Gold’s Gym Orlando in the Dr Phillips area, I meet Pleasant Lewis, the owner of several Central Florida Gold’s Gym facilities.

As a 50-year old, I struggle like everyone else, to find time and motivation to exercise.

This is one of life’s big truths.  We all are given the same amount of time. Successful people figure it out, plan for set backs, never give up and they find a million ways to motivate themselves.

And sometimes, if not more often, the thought of, “Is this worth it?”, enters their mind.

Gold’s Gym, Lifestyle Litness, Bally’s, YMCA’s, all struggle too – with finding a way to inspire people to make a lifetime commitment of healthy living.

I proposed to Pleasant that I could help.  We’ll see if “Goliath” has any interest in “David”.

Gym owners have the same challenge as their customers – finding time to do the important things that make a difference.

Did You?

Be Well.  Are You?  Will You?
Be Well. Are You? Will You?

Did you exercise yesterday?

Did you eat mostly healthy food?

Do you plan on doing it again today?

Excellent.

If you answered no to the questions, today’s another day.

If not you, who?  If not today, when?

Are you getting this?  Or is it getting old?

If it’s getting old, so are you.

Maybe It's Impossible

Keep Your Goals Very Small

Start Small and Never Stop
Start Small and Never Stop

What the?  Keep my goals very small?  Didn’t you say to dream big?

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

Exactly.

And maybe the challenge for many people, including you, is that your definition of impossible is inaccurate.

When I started running 11 years ago, my impossible goal wasn’t to run in the Master’s Track & Field World Championships.

It also wasn’t to run one mailbox a day for a week, and then two mailboxes a day the second week and so on.

It was to get started and never stop.

One day at a time.  Get started and never quit.  Never quit, one day at a time – this is what I mean by very small goals.

Do you see the difference?
