What’s on Your Bucket List?

Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”

–Andrew Jackson

Every now and then a movie comes around that really hits home and makes me sit back and take stock of my life and occasionally even strive to be a better person.

And about a month ago I saw just such a movie – and even though I don’t consider myself a movie connoisseur (I only see 1 or 2 movies a year) I felt it was my duty to bring this film to your attention.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but more importantly this movie will really make you think.

Time is by far your most precious commodity:

I think it was about a month ago Rosemary and I went to see the movie “The Bucket List” a story about 2 terminally ill patients that escape from their cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a whole to-do list of things to accomplish before they die.

Now the film in and of itself was a great movie. I loved the story line and even with the thought of the 2 main characters played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freedman only having a year to live the movie still manages to be quite funny.

But for me it was the movie’s underlying message that really made it stand out in my mind.

Think about it for a second – what would you do if you knew you only had 1 year left to live?!

The problem you’re having now is most men’s potency supplements and prescription medications only address one. So at the end of the day you only see marginal results if any. But that’s all about to change!

Just follow this link and read all about the doctor remedy that’s giving men a new lease on life:


That’s a doozy of a question. And I have to tell you it really got me to thinking about all the things I still have to accomplish before I leave this world some forty or fifty years from now.

So not only did I decide to make this film the basis for today’s article I’ve also decided I’m going to make a Bucket List of my very own – well sort of.

You know me I like to keep things simple and straight to the point so instead of making a list I’m going to pick one thing I’ve always wanted to accomplish or experience and just do it – then I’ll just move onto the next thing.

And first up on my agenda is to complete in my very first triathlon – actually I’m going to compete in a mini-triathlon. But it’s a good start.

A friend of mine who’s an accomplished triathlete advised me to start off with a mini triathlon first and then after my body has adjusted to the strain I can move on to some of the bigger events.

Good enough for me. Because believe me these mini-triathlons are no cake walk. They consist of a ½ mile ocean swim, a three mile run and a twelve count em twelve mile bike ride to the finish.

Now I’m in pretty good shape so of course I thought no problem at first but since then reality has really set in.

During the fist few weeks of my training I quickly discovered that doing any one of these exercise by itself in my current shape is doable but when you tie any two together it really starts getting tough.

But I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” so the old Doc is pushing through.

And through it all I’ve really developed a great respect for the folks out there competing in these events.

Last week I did a two mile run directly after a twenty five mile bike ride – I was alright but I will definitely need to readjust my training on that phase of the game if I’m going to be competitive.

In the past I’ve done wind sprints on flat ground, in the sand and uphill. I’ve done thirty minute grappling sessions during my training for Jiu-Jitsu competitions – but this is entirely new animal. But truthfully I’m enjoying every minute of it!

But what would the neighbors think:

Just yesterday I was explaining my training schedule and how exhausting it’s been to a friend of mine and his comment was, “well Doc what do you expect you’re trying to train like you’re a 21 year old kid again”.

So I explained to him the importance of physical fitness and the achieving of ones goals and how they become even more critical the older you get.

Getting soft, slow, fat and flaccid has nothing to do with the aging process – it’s all about the choices you make every singe day from the second you wake up in the morning.


Finally: a pain fighting formula that not only eradicates pain but also increases joint mobility and repairs years of damage from constant wear and tear. And this is the only place you’ll find it, anywhere.

Sure you can wake up tomorrow grab a donut out of the cupboard and channel surf until your mind melts and your rear end turns to jelly. But just think of all the other possible choices you could be making instead.

Alright, I’m ranting a little now – back to the subject at hand. I understand in September there’s going to be a triathlon not too far from where I live – and I plan on being ready for it.

I think it’ll be a great way to celebrate my upcoming 66th birthday. I’ve set up a grueling training regimen, I’m being much stricter with my diet than I have in a long time and I have someone to consult with on my actual strategy and pace for the race itself.

So now all that’s left is to just do it. And to make sure I have my wife Rosemary out there taking tons of pictures for you guys so you can be right there with me when the old Doc brings you home the gold.

Actually winning the race isn’t part of my actual goal – my actual goal is to just finish in a respectable time. But you never know!

What’s on your Bucket List:

But in the mean time I’d really like to hear about your ideas for your own Bucket List.

I’d love to share some of the better ideas with the rest of the readers on my list.

And remember it doesn’t have to be as lofty a goal as competing in a triathlon or running a marathon.

Your goal might be as simple as getting yourself into good enough shape so you can get out there and mow your own lawn again.

Or maybe you’ve been looking to muster up the gumption to learn how to dance or build your grandkids a tree house.

I received an email yesterday from a gentlemen that’s looking to get back some of the fire that’s been missing in his sex life.

Well any and of all these things are well within your grasp. And outside of the carpentry skills it takes to build a quality tree house – most every goal we’ve talked about today can be achieved through simple diet and exercise.

It can do a whole hell of a lot more for you than just make you thinner, more vigorous and healthier too – it can completely change the way you feel about yourself and the world around you.

Take it from me – it can change your life if you let it!

Well, it’s time for my afternoon bike ride now so I’ll have to end this discussion for the time being. But don’t worry I’ll be keeping you posted on my progress.

And I’ll look forward to reading your thoughts as well.

Train Hard and Stay Healthy!
