Worked out on the elliptical at 5:30 am this morning. Did 30 minutes for 400 calories burned. I increased the level for the last five minutes before cool down on resistance. My booty is burning now on my chair!
I am in limbo right now. I work out in the morning. Come home. Can't really do a lot until my knee is healed so I watch tv and ice it. Make myself a quick dinner. Surf around my fitness sites. Go to bed. Wake up do it again.
I should start reading some books. Normally I don't start until summer, but there is nothing on tv AND I am trying to avoid utilizing it as a an emotional crutch.
My new game is to find interesting pieces of motivation for fitness in weight loss in the media.
Last night I watched "Fat, Sick and Dieing" on youtube for free. Thinking the movie would revolution my life like so many of my friends have said it would. It didn't. I am sure it did for others, but not me. Anyways it was showing for FREE on youtube this week so be sure to check it out if you are interested in juicing (not my bag).
BUT....it was better than watching another mind numbing show on tv that I have seen before. It was information. I am CRAVING information. Craving motivation.
New Obsession for motivation: free podcasts on my iphone. Specifically, Jillian Micheals. These podcasts are FREE PEOPLE!! Free educational information about weight loss.
I listened to another Jillian Micheals podcast on my drive to work today. OMG!! Jillian inspires me. She just says it how it is. No excuses, no whining, just do. Just do and you will get there. She is so intelligent. I am amazed at hearing her list the crap in food that people admit to eating and then telling them what it does to their body and what a better alternate is. AHH-mazing. Yeah it is her job, but still, so helpful.
I really do highly recommend listening to her podcasts if you can. I get them for free on my iphone. They are FREE people!! It is like she is sitting in your car talking to you. It is so motivating. It is constantly making me think. Keeps my head in the game.
After a one hour podcast I leave my car feeling refreshed, renewed and on a mission. Like I just left a great therapy session by a fitness coach.
It is all at our fingertips.
I remember WISHING something like this would exist when I was younger and struggling and looking for guidance. Now this is the age of information.
Educating myself on fitness (even most the stuff that I think I know- gets revolutionized). I am loving it.
If anyone has any other suggestions for great fitness shows, podcasts, people. PLEASE list them below.
