On week-ends I do a workout with the new XBox360-KINECT "YOUR SHAPE EVOLVED"-Fitness programme. My body movements are filmed, put on the screen, constantly monitored (incl. the calories burnt), commented on and measured. It's like I hired my own personal trainer ! Awesome !

I come home from work and I don't want to work out. So I stop, take a deep breath, and close my eyes...Suddenly I am on a beach and I can see myself. I picture myself looking rock'n in an awesome 2 piece with a nice tan and my fiancÚ.
Then reality sets in that in no way shape or form do i look like that YET! So I get on my treadmill and rock it! I WILL LOOK AWESOME!216
We need to slow down in life. Email, snail mail and texting has taken us to a place that, I believe, is impersonal. Yes I realize there is a time and place for this, BUT its nice to actually hear a voice than receive a text. This generation does not write letters as much as it should. While dating my husband, he wrote me letters - something to look back at years later.
Technology is ever evolving, making our lives simpler. We can get things in a matter of seconds.
I challenge you to take time out today to call or write someone close to you - whether near or far.
Fitness, like finances allows everyone, not matter what shape they are in to exalt themselves to the position of expert. One thing that has really helped me was to quit being an expert, and submit to the plans and teaching of actual trainers. Especially ones that know what they are talking about!
Josh Hillis is awesome for fat loss and getting in shape. Vince Delmonte is awesome for building muscle, and John Romaniello is incredible for both! Fast!
