Welcome – Real Life In Real Time

How much hype surrounds diet and exercise?

Exactly, but you won’t find any here.

If you’re looking for authenticity, encouragement, hope, ideas, tips, and strategies to get healthier and stay healthier, welcome to Lane 8.

Friends once told me I don’t need to worry about diet and exercise. I shot back, “It’s because I DO worry about it everyday – that’s why it looks like that to you.”

I write short, pithy posts each morning about health matters. At 51, the results speak for themselves. I guarantee you’ll think differently¬†about your health if you visit each day.

And different is what most most people need, because doing the same things and expecting different results, is….well….you know the saying….

What I can’t guarantee is if you’ll make slow and steady positive changes. That’s up to you.

If not today, when?

Okay, I said what needed to be said. This entry is longer than the daily posts, which usually take less than 30 seconds, but may resonate with you all day.

Here’s a quote, lifted from my Facebook updates:

“You go girl. I am doing the same thing with my bosses wife. We go at lunch time almost everyday. It is amazing what a walk a day can do for you.”

It’s amazing what walking can do, if you do it.

Temptation Is Everywhere...
Temptation Is Everywhere...

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is exceedingly challenging.

Anyone who tells you differently is lying.

These 12 tips may help you overcome your next little urge to quit, simply by helping you remember where our human weaknesses dwell.

It will be difficult.

But years from now, you’ll be so glad you never gave up.

If you’re like most people, you’re set in your ways. You talk about change, and you can easily see what others need to change, and in fact, you openly talk about those people behind their back, not because you’re mean, but simply because you are weak.

Courageous people anger others. Courageous people don’t intend that anymore than you do. We are all human, and therefore, we succumb to temptation long before we are willing to fight the good fight.

If you don’t fight for your health, who will?

If you don’t start fighting for your health today, then when?

So, as you watched yesterday’s You Tube video, rather than see some old guy showing off, remember that I couldn’t even get my legs to parallel for one second. Not even one second. Are you paying attention?

There is hope for you, but you must do two things. See you tomorrow.
