Small bird and hawk confrontation
The Hawk is essentially is saying, “Bird, dude, you’ve got to be kidding.”

Many take health for granted. These are the same people, which is most of America, that fall into the 60-70% obesity statistic.

The remaining 30-40% are not the other extreme, they are mostly a (slightly) lesser version of unhealthy, yet morbidly sedentary and unfocused.

Thank you for placing the highest priority on the way you move, eat, and rest.

Congrats for finding a million ways to stay motivated. A lifetime of healthy living is a long time.

So is the opposite.

Teen obesity in America
One of the last articles i read last night.


Teen obesity in America


Woke up this morning at 156 pounds.

Feels awesome.

Dinner last night was a medium Twistee Treat soft serve ice cream cone on the way home from the audio-visual check and arrival-day conference reception.

It was too late to eat a regular dinner, yet i needed something to fill an empty belly.

Obesity is on the rise. Saw the headline a few days ago. Didn’t save the link.

Should i have saved it? Do we really need the article to believe obesity is rising?

Just take our own historic wellness habits.

Ask, “Am i at a healthy, vibrant weight? Am i struggling to simple stay where i am (and where i am isn’t close to optional)? Am i losing my grip and traveling down a slow and steady path to an ever increasing weight?”




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Who’s fault is it anyway?

Who taught us excuses?

Who taught us shortcuts?

Who taught us to use good judgement?

Doesn’t matter once we become an adult out on our own, because it’s our responsibility now.

Life is hard. It’s your job to put in the effort to figure it out.

Helen Keller had it much tougher than any of us. And she said:

Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world. – Helen Keller

This video is as powerful as those graphic “here’s what can happen when you text and drive” videos, just not as graphic.



My book asks 50 powerful questions. They are simple and easy “yes or no” questions.

My life changed when i got 50 yeses.
