I now know why they cry.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

The contestants on the Biggest Loser, when they get up on that scale and, low and behold, they've gained weight. I'm not gonna cry over my weight gain but if I worked my butt off and saw no results that would suck. Fact is, I know exactly what I should've been doing but didn't do. I hope this cycle works like Haley's Comet and I won't be seeing it for a while. I think The Beatles' song "The Long And Winding Road" says it best, or maybe I'm thinking of The Greatful Dead's "Long Strange Trip." Either way, there's gonna be highs and lows but we've got to keep on pluggin away. Trump is an awesome example: made it big, lost it big and made it back even bigger. Never quit, never surrender! Every day is a new chance to try again!

    Don't cry - GET ANGRY. I find that when I cry and wallow I don't change anything. When I get angry I tell myself NO MORE and start taking things more seriously. You're right - life (And the scale) has it's ups and downs but it's how we react to challenges and struggles that shapes our overall outcome. Kick butt, you can do this. You already know what you need to do, now DO IT.

Screw the past!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

If you want to make progress and realize success are you gonna have to be consistent? You better believe it. A few days off, especially in the wrong setting, can press the UNDO button big time. There is work to be done and with that said I'm going to focus more on today than to account for the past. Learn from it...hopefully (I better, as Sgt Murtaugh would say "I'm getting to old for this s***.), but I can't worry about those cals of the past (some good, some less than good). Isn't it weird, good food makes you feel good but so does less than good for you food. I think the only difference is the duration of the feel good.

    Good music makes everything feel a little better, don't you think?

Not quite sure about the rum. I would prefer my calories spent in a chocolate cream pie.
