3 Inspiring Ted Talks

You guys know about my health/fitness journey and battle with food. You also know about my 'love' of challenges and over-committing myself. I found a few Ted Talks that I wanted to share with you.

Back in 2010 Jamie Oliver had a television show called Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. He traveled to Huntington, WV.  In 2008 Huntington was found to be America's unhealthiest city by the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention based on adult obesity rates and related diseases (here). In his Ted Talk, Jamie tells the audience about the amount of sugar kids are eating in schools as well as the lack of knowledge kids have these days about vegetables. Take a look -


You know how I did that thing called the Whole30? Well, Matt Cutts challenges himself with a new 30 day challenge all the time. Photo challenges, No- Sugar challenges, and so on.  He says that you can start a new habit or quit a bad habit in just 30 days.

You guys know how much I love my challenges :)  I love writing about them and making my challenges known. I always thought it was a great way to hold myself accountable. Derek Sivers thinks you should keep your goals to yourself.
Here's why -


I found Matt and Derek's talks pretty interesting. I know all about the '30 day' notion and this time I'm going to take Derek's advice and keep my goals to myself. November is going to be a good month. I can feel it.
