100 Days (tribute to Johnboy & Keith!)

Here's to Keith over at dead islets. He has just published a post titled "100 Days". The title of his post is no doubt respectfully borrowed from our mutual friend and O.C. blogger Johnboy of Infusion of thought, when he posted about his hitting a major and very inspiring landmark of 100 days straight of getting at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise!

Johnboy is quite an inspiration to many that enjoy reading his blog, that includes Keith and myself. The dedication that he has shared with us has impacted many of us in a very positive way - talk about a ripple effect!

Both Johnboy and Keith have been very supportive of me, and have shared some wonderful insights in their comments to my posts. I appreciate the heck out of both of them! So when Keith called us to action in his 100 Days post, I felt compelled to respond!

So, starting March 1, 2006 I will commit to getting at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise each day. I also like the way that Johnboy summed it up in his post:

"Just a quick post today as it marks 100 days since I recommitted myself to concentrating on good health through regular exercise, healthy eating and frequent testing."

Maybe Keith and I can help keep Johnboy going, in addition to reaping the positive impacts on our own health.

Scott, thank you for the mention.
I cannot tell you how eager I am to have the company. You guys rock!

Together, we will be much stronger than the sum of our parts. :)

I need to hop on board with this. I'm so exercise resistant. No one has more lame excuses than I do. Maybe tomorrow will be my first day.

I think the person with the lame excuse is SCOTT. Why are you waiting until March 1st? Just another excuse to not do something, huh? What is so magical about March 1st--because it is the beginning of the month? You know the old saying, "I'll start my diet on Monday." That's what it sounds like. Just do it NOW! I have read many of your posts over the last couple of weeks and have come to learn that you often put things off. This is just typical Scott. Start today. It is only 30 minutes. And basketball is not aerobic. It may feel that way, but you start and stop too much. You know you can do this. You have a lot of people supporting you. Join in with them now.
