Disney Parks Blog update on Captain EO closing in two weeks. We were going to go after lunch.


Facebook body, aka as Facebook health.

How many social media reps do we get in each day? One rep for each time we check FB.

How is our social media blood pressure? How do we feel as we try to keep up? How do we feel if no one likes or comments on something of ours? How do we feel when someone says something we oppose, dislike, despise, even hate?

How do we feel when we get friend requests from someone we barely know?

How do we feel when someone we send a friend request to never accepts?

How do we feel on a busy day when we get unimportant notifications from a comment thread?

How do we feel (fill in the blank, because we could go on and on) ________?

Exercising to lose weight is a lie

While running and thinking, I wondered if this domain name was taken


Below is a facebook reply (I wrote but never posted) to a FB update I made about exercising to lose weight being a lie…

Me: The paradox of exercise is we think it’s about losing weight. That’s a lie. Think about all the other benefits. I’d consider myself a coward if I ignored the (obvious) truth.

Reply: Exercise can be about losing weight, it’s not a lie! Other health benefits as well but weight loss can be pretty important.

Me (the one I wrote but opted to not post): “Totally agreed. What I think is a lie is how media portrays weight loss as the premier benefit. To me exercise’s premiere benefit is to care for (and honor) the temple that houses everything that keeps us alive. Exercise helps prevent injury, illness, disease. Exercise helps us have fun and bond with others. Exercise relieves stress, heightens awareness, and ripples over into our attitude, spirit, job, home. Most athletes (any sport) don’t exercise to lose weight, they exercise to excel. And what purpose does exercise have once a person has met their weight loss goal? (it may not seem so, but i’ve been there – many times – and am there again now). And are we saying the people with relatively acceptable BMI have no need to exercise, since they don’t need to lose weight?”

Writing is so cathartic. Patience is so empowering. Exercise is honor our temple is so fundamental.

You Can Do It
You Can Do It

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:

  1. Dream Big
  2. Get There
  3. 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.

That’s all I can say.

Most, if not all of Lane 8’s focus has been centered around exercise, with hints and glimpses of diet and nutrition.

You care about your health. We all do. But if you are seriously interested in taking more control of your destiny, you really should watch this movie trailer.

I know you’re busy.  We’re all busy. But when you have people who are advocates for a better way, they actually do much of the ground work, so all you have to do is click “play”.

It’s short.  It’s powerful. It’s relevant. It premieres June 12.  The analogy is the same as what passionate people did to expose the tobacco industry, after decades of total political protection.

The food processing industry should be one of the next big targets to put in the cross hairs.
