Break The Inertia

Your body WILL thank you! Also, feels good to have surpassed my annual fitness minutes in little over three months. Got to sleep. Peace.


Your Focus Determines Your Reality - Qui Gon Jinn

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Yeah, I lifted that from the Star Wars character played by Liam Neeson in Episode 1. But lately I'm finding that it is so true. In the past, my attempts at weight loss were half hearted or at least not a full assault. I've never had a problem with exercise: been playing tennis since high school and love to bike. But it was never a complete change just tipping the scales in one direction with exercise while leaning on the other side with larger food portions (justified by all that exercise...I deserve it). Sparkpeople is great in that I'm not just accountable to myself anymore but to you guys and gals as well. Maybe it's my competitive side but seeing those Sparkpoints adding up just makes me want to keep adding to it. I'm so glad I joined the Logical Loss 12 Week Challenge otherwise my efforts wouldn't have been as focused or consistent. Surfinkimo, Jonathan1001 and Amyevangeline get me off my a.. butt and out the door. So thank you all, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Props to the Biggest Losers!!

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Yesterday I tried to work out like a Biggest Loser and limped away with a new found respect for the physical effort they put forth to be able to stay on that show week to week. I think I worked out about 2.5 hours between bike, elliptical and walking. Also did about 20 minutes of strength training. I wasn't wiped but I could feel it! Jillian talks about them working out 6+ hours a day 6-7 days a week. That's huge! That they could do that, at higher weights, is amazing and shows the beauty, resilience and strength of our bodies.

    I agree, they work their butts off. that's why some of them lose 10-14Lbs a week. I love the show. I got hooked about 4-5 weeks ago. As big as I am, I fully understand their struggles.

Sweat makes for a sweet victory!

Saturday, March 21, 2009

What is it about sweat? I think I've come to love it because when it's there it means I'm burning up...literally. The only reason we sweat is to cool ourselves. And when I'm working out that intensely that sweat shows up it's a good sign that I'm moving in the right direction. Yeah, it stinks after a while, and you leave puddles in office chairs but that's the price of progress. Or maybe I should go take a shower already? Peace!


I think my girlfriend likes the changes!

Monday, March 16, 2009

Hadn't seen her for a few weeks and all I can say is: change is good! Positive reinforcement is worth the time, sweat, sore feet, sore muscles and occasionally feeling a little hungry. I think it was Tom Venuto who said, "Hunger is the feeling of fat cells shrinking." Works for me! Peace emoticon
