This email is coming to you from Venice Florida (somewhere near the beach…). Here’s what I’ve found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week.
My latest podcast –
AAJ 174: 9 easy things that you can do to make 2019 better than 2018
This is a super simple list of things that I have used over the last year that I guarantee will make your 2019 awesome!
My top post on social –
Merry Christmas from Florida on Facebook. This is the first time that Facebook has produced my top social post. Crazy!
Thought that I’ve been pondering that might seem harsh –
So, we’ve been living in Florida for the last couple of weeks, and there are a couple of things that I’ve noticed.
#1 there are a TON of older people, which I’m sure you would have guessed because Florida has to be right up there among the top places that people retire. And I can see why. It’s the end of December and the weather has been in the 70’s and 80’s.
#2 VERY FEW of these older people are in (what I would call) acceptable physical shape. Honestly, it’s pathetic! They now have all the time in the world and most of them look like they could die at any moment. Huge bellies, double chins, and extra padding around the thighs that does not make it more comfortable when sitting. It’s like we’re in the movie Wall-E.
Here’s what I want to say to you (and hopefully someone in your peer group that you can motivate)…
Starting a healthy lifestyle after you retire is something that you’re not going to do. So, if you want to live a better quality of life now and in the future… get hyper focused on health and fitness now.
Even if you don’t feel like you have enough time, you are probably the person that needs it the most!
So, please, please, please don’t be like this retired Floridians, and figure out how to get yourself healthy now. Find a trainer, or a CrossFit gym, or my The Get Better Project daily workouts, just do something to get started.
It’s your life we are talking about! You need to take is seriously!
That’s really all that I have for you this week. We are headed into the Everglades tomorrow to find some Gators! 🙂 Let me know if you need anything at all. I’m here for you!
