Knowledge is Power, but Action is the Key

Monday, June 20, 2011

This week on my Purple Stars team we are discussing the following quote that I got from my favorite podcast (Fat 2 Fit radio).

“Knowledge is power, but in reality knowledge is only Potential Power. You actually
have to get off your butt and do something to make anything happen.”
- Jeff Ainslie

While I do agree 100% of the above quote, I do think we have to educate ourselves about our bodies, weight loss, exercise, health, etc... Then we have to take what we learned and put it into action. I find that I do really well when I surround myself with health related things (i.e. podcasts, blogs, tv shows, etc...).

This week's discussion homework is to share the names of blogs, tv shows, books, articles, etc... that help motivate you and keep you focused on your goals. If you have a link to a specific website or blog that would be great. If not, that is fine too. I'm sure we could all google the name. Check out some of the ones that your fellow teammates like and provide feedback on whether you found it informative or not.

A bonus will be given if you can list a couple of things that you have learned and how you plan on putting that into action.

Since I have been having issues with the new Weight Watchers program, I am going to take the recommendations of the Fat 2 Fit radio and calculate my BMR. Then I'll adjust my BMR based on my activity level. That will be the number of calories I will target. Hopefully this will help me from feeling deprieved.
