Balanced excellence

Business phrases
This is yesterday’s note. Added two others inspired from the first.

Balanced excellence is a phrase originating from a If Disney Ran Your Life podcast episode recording with Jody Maberry.

In the moment yesterday, inhale excellence emerged in an instant.

Having meals in a college dining hall is inspiring and last night’s dinner was no exception.

Stir-fry vegetables and tofu, and a gala apple for dessert.

Perfect.

What's Our Obligation?

Lunch like you mean it

avocado lunch
Lunch. Yesterday. At the desk. Missing are the pistachios, almonds, and walnuts (appetizer), and the desserts: raspberries and an apple.

 

Lunch like you mean it.

It was so tempting (for the second consecutive day) to eat the Take 5 candy bars on the kitchen countertop candy dish.

But i didn’t.

PS. The excuses i had rationalized were good – but i knew i’d regret caving to weakness.

How Much Is Enough?

Living without

jeff noel cultural keynote speaker
Is your health worth defending? Find a millions ways to stay motivated.

 

Living (and running) without custom foot orthotics for about 90 days now. In the big picture, this is hardly enough time to make a transition from 12 years of wearing them everyday.

However, it is a transition and so far so good.

i just need to remember that without orthotic support, strength will need to be developed and range of motion challenged and a new normal will emerge.

All of this takes time.

The itch to compete is strong; which means pushing yourself harder than normal.

Watched the US Indoor Track & Field Championships all weekend and then World Indoors is in 10 days, and the 2016 Rio Olympics is this Summer. So yeah, don’t overdo it jeff.

Running trumps the gym

Balance and wellness keynote speakers
This blog is about our body, the temple housing everything keeping us alive.

 

Running trumps the gym. When my schedule, or energy, allows for only one, i default to running. Probably because i don’t have to drive a car to accomplish it.

Hopefully, a gym workout will fit into today’s normal “rest” mode.

Besides Diet & Exercise

Part yes, part no

Run Disney
13.1 miles

 

Part yes, part no.

Temptation. Should we or shouldn’t we?

We need filters.

Filters come from vision and purpose.

Ran a half-marathon two days ago, Friday. Could run another tomorrow (Monday) morning.

But should we just because we can?
