Like a broken record…
Not trying to make you a runner.
Not trying to make you a swimmer.
But you do have to do something after school five days a week with a group of other students.
You also have to exercise.
It’s convenient you picked something that does both simultaneously.

Dancing counts as exercise…
I do not know why I run, I only know that I enjoy it and can not help myself. — Roger Bannister
Run, walk, swim, bike, dance, sail, hike…something…just do something….
You know you want to.
Ever struggle with your motivation to exercise or with making smart food choices?
(If you said no, you’re lying)
Yesterday while at Gold’s Gym Orlando, I asked one of the staff, “What is it that makes some people commit to exercise for a lifetime and others quit after a few weeks?”
What do you think? How would you answer it?
I suggested that we can not do it for ourselves, we must do it for someone else. If we fail, we only let ourselves down. But if we do it for someone else and we fail, we let them down.
The other person challenged my rational (which is exciting), and in the speed of the day, neither one of us, in this casual conversation, really had a desire to debate this further at that moment.
Yet on the drive home, what I had been trying to say was revealed. We need to be a role model for great health habits. This is the secret that eludes people.
You must be someone’s role model, for life. This means you can not fail. There is no greater motivation.
If this is flying over your head, you’re at huge risk to miss this simple, but compelling health secret.
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:
- Dream Big
- Get There
- 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.
Did you exercise yesterday?
Did you eat mostly healthy food?
Do you plan on doing it again today?
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.
