TO FITNESS GURU JACK LALANNE, BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1914
For many years lalanne liked to prove the power of physical fitness—even into old age—by performing a public athletic stunt on his birthday.

1954: 40-year-old LaLanne swam the length of the Golden Gate Bridge, underwater, pulling a 140-pound bag.

1955: 41-year-old LaLanne swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.

1957: 43-year-old LaLanne swam the six-mile Golden Gate Channel, towing a 2,500-pound boat.

1959: 45-year-old LaLanne performed 1,000 push-ups and 1,000 chin-ups in 82 minutes.

1984: 70-year-old LaLanne swam 1.5 miles across Long Beach Harbor with his hands and feet shackled, towing 70 people in 70 rowboats.

You don't have to own a smart car to save gas and money. Just follow these simple strategies:

Avoid rapid accelerating and braking - save $1.20 per gallon

Stay under 60 mph - save 84 cents per gallon

Go for regular tune-ups - save 15 cents per gallon

Keep tires inflated - save 11 cents per gallon

Remove junk from trunk - save 7 cents per gallon

Which technology saves you the most time? This poll was taken by readers of Whole Living Magazine.

Smart phone - 70%
GPS - 12%
Dishwasher/Washing machine - 9%
Online calendar - 9%

What do you think? One of these...or maybe something else?

Set your Pace

Friday, September 23, 2011

To succeed at any challenge in life, you've got to tune out the noise around you-the footsteps of others (ahead and behind), distracting "advice," doubters who tell you it can't be done. Instead, focus on your inner voice. Setting your own goal, charting your course and trusting your instints take courage, but they are the surest route to crossing your personal finish line a winner.
