GET UP GET WALKING

The health and wellness experts say that about 80% of what we do is a habit. A perfect example is how I wake up every morning. It is about 4AM. It is a habit. I had always slept on my belly until five months ago when I broke some ribs. I had no choice, I stated to sleep on my back. My lazy brain fought hard, but gave in because I had to get sleep. Now sleeping on my back is a new habit, and I breathe and sleep better and that is a good new habit. So there, lazy brain.

Years ago I had a snooze button, but now I get up early every day. I ouch to the edge of the bed, stick the right leg over, slide, scoot, inch the left leg over, sit up straight, put two heals on the floor, smile, and thank the Lord for the blood pressure. The rest of this day is a gift to live as my last, while planning for tomorrow as forever.
This is the habit that starts my morning routine. The Bathroom business, teeth brushing, face washing, walking to the kitchen, making a pot of coffee, drinking that hot cup of coffee as I start the thirty or so minutes of reading, thinking, praying, and planning this new day. This is a habit.
It is around 6:30AM and off to the park for forty minutes of brisk walking. This routine started in September 2006. It is constantly tweaked and upgraded.

Now it is about 7:30 AM. This is the time for my favorite breakfast. Plain shredded wheat, frozen blueberries, pineapple chunks and cherries, a handful of raisins, and a handful of four or five kinds of nuts. I add a cup of cold Almond milk top this great concoction. This starts my daily habit of at least five or fresh or frozen fruits, veggies, and nuts every day.
Hi HO it’s off to work we go. I sneak in a high powered protein drink that includes fiber. Trying out new healthy food and drinks is a good habit. I take advice about energy drinks and food ideas from those who are healthier than me.
I am hooked on water, not sugar drinks. That is one habit that was a long time coming, and that is one habit I intend not to break.

The body needs sleep. I go to bed most every night at 9 PM. It is a very important appointment I want to keep. It was a hard habit to get addicted to. I now sleep on my back.

An Iron Man was giving advice to a “newbie”. Eavesdrop with me. “Start by letting all the air out. Use the muscles at the base of your belly. Push and shove it all out, now breath in fresh air to fill in all that cavity from the bottom of your belly to the top of your chest”. Breath deeply when you run, walk, sleep. and make it a habit.

Eggs are among the healthiest and nutritious foods that are “laying around”.

Almonds are worth getting nutty about especially when you add peanuts and pecans to the platter.Chicken breast is a popular protein- rich food. Oats, cottage cheese, greek yogurt broccoli and fish are some more.

MAP READING 101

MAP READING 101

 

To find out where you are going, you must know where you are now. To know where you are now, you better be sure where you have been.

On June 12, 2006, I used what I learned about map reading to go on the trip of a lifetime and I am still on the road.

Let me tell you where I had been for 75 years. My memories go back to being a teenager in the 1940s. I was fat.  On my paper route, there was a great bakery and I would get a half dozen donuts to tide me over. Liberty Restaurant was “the hangout”. I would down six hotdogs and 3 DR Peppers at a sitting. Are you getting the picture? I ate too much. High School and college were a blast. My dream of being a great motivational speaker was right on schedule. I had a great career. My life was good, but my health was slipping My blood pressure was off the charts, the weight was up and down like a yoyo. I ran out of energy.

That is where I was on June 12, 2006.  Earlier in 2004, I was up to my knees in three feet of water in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Do you talk out loud to yourself? I do. “Bob if you keep on drinking and eating like you are right now, where will you be in five years.” I did not even hesitate with the reply “I will be dead”.

My journey from Sickness, Illness, and Chronic Disease to Health and Happiness started right then and I have been on that road every day since. Water and food are the two fuels that take this Noggin, Gut and Digitals on the road to Health and Happiness.

 I drink lots of water and less and less sugar drinks until there are no sugar drinks. The water swooshes, whooshes and flushes the gut. Sugar drinks mess up the gut.

img_1295

 I feed my gut six or more fresh and fresh frozen veggies and nuts every day.

 There are also two things I am responsible for to keep this body on the road to Health and Happiness, instead of detouring back to Sickness, Illness, and Chronic Disease.

IMG_0727

I must keep me in motion. I walk every day. At first I could barely walk briskly for five minutes. Since June 12th, 2006 I average over 8500 steps per day one step at a time.

The last responsibility is to get some sleep every day. The Healthy and Happy bunch are saying it takes about seven hours of good snooze time every day to stay on track.

Four simple habits, done every day will get all of us from Sickness, Illness, and Chronic Disease to Healthy and Happy.

 All you and I need to do is follow the map every day.

NUTS

BEEFITBOB AND THE TIP OF THE DAY

PEANUTS ARE NOT NUTS. THEY ARE LEGUMES. PEANUTS HAVE MORE PROTEIN PER OUNCE THAN ANY OTHER NUT. NUTS CAN REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE. THEY ARE GOOD FOR YOU.

CHOOSE TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICE

IMG_1427

The CRYSTAL COW PILE STAFF are gathering DATA

 

The Experts say that between 80% and 90 % of everything we do is by habit.  We are born with no habits, so our care givers choose our habits for us, and a lot of those habits never change. Many people never move, change political parties, religion, and are content to choose someone else to make choices for them.   One of those habits is smoking cigarettes. They cause people to die and it practically says that on the label. Some people chose to smoke, get cancer and die. Those folks chose to let others make a poor choice available to them.

Everything happens because we made a choice. On June 12, 2006, I made a choice to be healthy. Why? I talk to myself and on that day said “If I keep on drinking and eating like I am right now, I will be dead in 5 years.”

bob-143

I am a data guy. I tracked how many steps I walked every day, then it became a habit. I have walked every day since. A couple years later I drank a little more water and a little less sugar drink. I started to tweak my habit with a lot more water and a lot less sugar drink. Today, I drink no sugar drinks. It is a habit.

Our body requires food. We are losing the battle of diabetes and it is mostly caused by obesity. Obesity is not caused because we eat too much. It is caused by the habit of eating over processed foods, and a big player in this mess is sugar drinks. Sugar is a drug and the choice is ours to quit or chose not to quit.

I put another habit into play. I chose to eat six or more fresh or fast frozen fruits and veggies and nuts before noon every day. The combination of lots of water and fresh fruits and veggies slowly changed my way of eating. I eat slower, more often and chose smaller servings. It is a series of newly formed habits. 

This has been a series of very simple, doable choices, that started very slowly, then just took off. This called the compound effect or expediential math.  A best seller The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy has been a part of this journey since November 8th, 2011. This is the third reread. He says to “take it slow and easy.

My walking time in a 5K this year was the fastest time ever. Tracking steps daily is a habit. Today it is done on a smartwatch that wasn’t around in 2006. At this writing I have logged 30,346,200 steps one at a time. The pace is increasing and the daily average is going up, but still under 10,000 steps a day. I am not there yet. A daily routine of healthy habits is all that separates the old me from what I am today. If I can you can choose to
