WHEN IT GETS BROKE-FIX IT

 

Things have been rolling on at a pretty good clip  since June 12, 2016. That is the day I started walking, I mean really walking. I have not been sick, and went from weighing 254 and today it is 145. The blood pressure was a scary 204/105. Now that is serious. Today it varies for 94/50 to 130/60. All this is good stuff for an 85-year-old.

The starting cord on the weed whacker got harder and harder to pull, so Ann started doing the weed whacking. Getting up from sitting got harder and harder. I have lost much of my arm strength plus the ability to stand up after a long “sitting spell”.

Ninety-nine percent of Me being smart is knowing what I am dumb at. That is the easy part. When it comes to my health and wellness I only take advice from those who walk the talk.

One of my main mentors is West Point educated, Ranger trained and battle tested. He is a Hero. This is what he said. “When you can’t get up from going to the toilet, the next stop is the nursing home.”

There is a trainer that has done wonders with our young distant runners. He has coached some of my athlete friends and has been a major part of their transformation.

 He is very good and  very busy. He has worked me in with an evaluation. “This is good because we now know where you are and we can go from there” he said after a complete assessment. The journey is starting with the first step. I will be working on upper body strength and squats. The equipment is state of the art, and it will become a habit, then a routine, and then a discipline and a part of my life. I must walk the walk before I can talk the walk. I thought it would be a lonely journey.

I was handed a brochure and a friend suggested I might want to add this low impact cardiovascular and strength workout as warmup. Did I mention the brochure said this “Forever Fit” workout is for the older adult?

I was shocked when I showed up for the 9:35 AM-10:05 AM warmup. This wild bunch call themselves the RAT PACK. They were laughing, grabbing their dumbbells and were a wild and crazy fun bunch. They greeted me like I am a long-lost cousin. The time flew by.  This bunch were at different levels of skill, and it did not matter. I left that room feeling happy and OK. Every one of the RAT PACK are walking the talk.

The original RAT PACK was at the Sammy Davis Jr last show in Vegas. It started at 10:45PM and finally ended at 7:30 AM. They were from all walks of life and the cared for each other. I saw Sammy Davis JR in that last Vegas show.

The fun bunch went thru 30 minutes of intense exercise and it seemed like 5 minutes.

 My “motion system” needs fixing and those who are smarter than me are getting me fixed.

I am ready to start this new “walk”.

WHAT’S YOUR PASSION?

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love-who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.” – Oprah Winfrey

Steve Jobs in his famous Stanford University speech said “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better as the years roll on. So, keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

 

I started look at age 22. Fifty-two years and over 16 businesses later I had not found my passion until that day. Steve Jobs and Oprah said. “You will know when you find your Passion.”  I was standing in the Gulf of Mexico and talking to myself. “Do something you can do. “I could Walk. I WILL WALK”. Since June 12, 2006 I have never missed a day of walking Briskly. Steve Jobs put it this way. “Like any great relationship, it gets better and better as the years roll on.” He also said this in his speech and I say it right now to you. “Keep looking for your passion until you find it. Don’t settle.”

 

 

Walking every day has made me younger and healthier, and I feel better than I was at age 35. 

 IMG_1368

The North-East Texas Health department had me on their billboards as their poster boy. I write about walking, blog about walking, and talk about walking.

 

If I can transform from a dying old man to a healthy happy, passionate “35-year-old” then you can to.

“How can I do that?” you ask.

You will need only two easy to get, simple to use fuels, WATER and FOOD every day.

Your body has only two tasks to do.

Get in motion, so WALK every day.

SLEEP for seven or more hours every night.

WAFOWASL 

That is it. WATER, FOOD, WALK,SLEEP

This becomes a HABIT. More water, less sugar drinks and eventually no sugar drinks.  Fresh and fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nuts. You get better and better habits and have only whole grains, desert once a week, smaller helpings, less modified stuff, and make more good decisions.

Walking every day and sleeping every night become more of a daily ROUTINE.

Now the way you eat and move is a DISCIPLINE and other people start to see you as a leader they want to follow.

You are CONSISTENT. You Are HEALTHY AND HAPPY.  

Four simple steps that turn into a habit then a, routine then a discipline, done consistently.

Now you got it.

The fitter is a fitter, not a sales clerk.

Walk around the store briskly in the shoes

FRUIT VS JUICE

img_1357

MY RESEARCH TEAM AND THEIR JUICE VS FRUIT REPORT

Image result for clipart juice and fruit

Juicing good fruit grinds up the “roughage”  or  fiber.

 Fiber is sortof like sandpaper. It cleans out your entrails.  It cleans out the plumbing in your gut.

Keeps you from getting stopped up.

Fruit take longer to eat , is better for you, and is healthy.
