Bodies in Motion

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Have you ever noticed the absolute beauty, fluidity and strength of a fit body in motion? This dawned on me as I looked at the television and saw a man slowly lift his body up and, using only his hands, rotate around the pole. I was awed. I wondered why I would ever let my body get to the state where I could barely walk when I could achieve pure poetry. I vowed to get this year on track.


Gone too long

Friday, February 19, 2010

It has been so long since I have really sparked. I miss it. Each day I get up and spin the wheel but that is about it. After my injury, I allowed too many things to get in the way of what I wanted to achieve. I have unlearned most of the principles I learned here. I have compromised my health. At least I am not starting over from the beginning completely. I will go slowly this time.

My friend just issued me a challenge to lose the weight I regained before he will teach me kickboxing. I have until March 19th. Hmm

Root cause

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

I just finished reading Bob Greene's blog on Larry King Live on the root cause of weight gain and that got me thinking. I have never really explored why I gained so much weight in such a short space of time? My dad suggested that I got too happy and comfortable in my relationship with "my bf". My bf on the other hand believed that my sedentary job and then studies caused the problem.

Can these be the reasons for my weight gain? I don't feel unduly happy and/ or comfortable and I have been sedentary before without gaining weight. I know have been a bit depressed for a few years and unsure of the direction I want to take my life but.....

  Maybe your dad is right.I only packed on so much weight since my husband and I have been together.I think that I lost sight of myself,feeling good in a relationship,and forgetting about me,and what probably caught my husband's attention in the first place.Come to think of it,my husband used to bug me alot whilst My girlfriend and I were out riding,that is actually how we started talking.Since him I never took the time to continue walking,or biking as my girlfriend and I used to.She used to tell me since I have my man I am scarce,so Dad may very well be head on,sista.

Daily choices

Monday, April 20, 2009

One of the most difficult things about this journey is the daily choices. Should I forgo my favorite fries with fried chicken or that absolutely delicious homemade ice cream for a fruit instead? Can I possibly afford 2 cups of my banana nut crunch cereal today? Do I really feel like exercising when all I want to do is veg in front the tv? I still find it hard to make the right choices each day. Some days are definitely easier than others but those other days are more diffcult than I thought possible. Given the difficulties I am experiencing I know when I complete this journey I will estatic and proud of myself. The way I figure it, 'the harder the journey, the greater the reward' should be my vision.

  I don't think that it has to be so hard.Everything will not happen at once.Girl I still go to KFC every now and then,all things in moderation.If you try to make everything correct all at once you will surely give up.It takes time to get it all right.Girl before I used to drink water,I had to start by putting the water in a soda bottle so that I could get the taste.Actually my taste buds were tricked by the sense of smell.So where ever you have to make a start do it.If God created this earth in six days,you could not possible get everything right all at one time.Just keep trying,don't go too far left, or too far right,just stay focused.We'll talk some more.I'm here. emoticon
