Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow. - Friedrich Nietzsche

What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn't think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger

The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit. - Morihei Ueshiba

If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years, then will power is no longer a problem. It's raining? That doesn't matter. I am tired? That's besides the point. It's simply that I just have to. - Emil Zatopek

Is there a greater motivation than getting YOUR LIFE and YOURSELF back?! So often, we lose ourselves in the jungle of our every day lives filled with stress and pressure. Growing up has been replaced with "shrinking". We worry too much, we worry about the wrong things and sometimes even the wrong people, and then, one day we wake up, and we're old, we're tired, weak, out of shape and depressed.

THE GOOD THING IS that we can shift our focus from aaaalll the bad things that suffocate us, and start changing our lives for the better - TODAY (and EVERY DAY!).

Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin. - Robert Collier

And remember, YOUR FOCUS DETERMINES YOUR REALITY!

In order to make the change quicker or more efficient if you will, I decided to attack my "issues" on all fronts. As 99% of people here already know, gaining weight is just a sign that something "went wrong" emotionally. So in order to restore my metal and physical health I need to do more than just workout. In the following lines you'll find some "products" that I personally found useful.

+ Tony Horton & Jillian Michaels = fav trainers

- WEIGHT LOSS / FITNESS RELATED BOOKS:

+ Bring it ~ Tony Horton
+ Clean ~ Alejandro Junger
+ Winning by Losing ~ Jillian Michaels
+ Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life ~ Jillian Michaels

I joined SP in April 2011, and I thought I would get rid of all of the excess weight by now, and get in the best shape of my life. I started too strong and experienced burnout, so needless to say, in September 2011, I am back where I started (actually 6 pounds heavier, yeah I know - bummer). But it's never to late too get back in the saddle, so that's what I'm doing...today!

STARTED: September 15th 2011 // weight 92.8kg

GOAL #1 : be under 90 kg

JAYA - derived from Sanskrit जय (jaya) meaning "victory"

EOS - this was the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn (means "dawn" in Greek).

P.S. I initially started "sparking" as BeachGrrrl but I realized that getting ready for the beach is not a complete and utter truth.

What I want is to unleash the strength I know lies within me. It's so much more than looking good in a bikini...although that's a fiiine bonus ;)

So I know I have taken some time to digest the quotes you shared with me! I guess that is just me :') I love the picks that you made and thank you so much for sharing them. I think the three that stood out each time I read through them were: Mark Viktor Hansen's, The Swedish Proverb, and Marianne Williamson's! I have a dry erase board on the inside of my front door that I use as a reminder and a last second motivational tool! Well I wrote The Swedish Proverb on there. It covers so much ground and is so short, sweet and to the point I know it will be perfect! So thank you so much! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the umbrella :')

I am glad you feel as though you finally got a warm day. A lot of people, especially those that don't exercise hate the heat. And maybe it is just me, but there is sooo much passion and raw power in the heat. We always say we love the warmth of anothers heart or most people would agree if you parachuted into the middle of the jungle that you would immediately feel the raw power around you, but so many people say they hate sweating. Not me, I love the warmth and the raw power of heat! So enjoy it!

Thank you as always for your support. I guess quotes are something I have always looked to for support and motivation. For some reason they are one of the few things that can get through the armor I have placed around me and they bring out a new and clean thought process most of the time! So I wanted to give one back to you as a thank you:

" The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat at the point of exhustion when no one else is watching!"

Have a good rest of your week!
