Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
"Just staying where you are takes some effort. Rising above takes a lot.
...Few people WANT to go the extra mile, lets someone else be right, learn an intimidating computer program, ask for a raise. After an exhausting day, nobody's natural instincts would choose cleanse, tone, and moisturize, a little yoga, and flossing over hitting the sack without the preliminaries.
But life belongs to those who floss.
Sure, we're all fond of ease and comfort. When you desire them more than you desire a quality life, however, you end up in bed with fat, broke & lonely.
...While those around them are doing the minimum required to maintain the existing state of affairs, men and women with extraordinary lives do a great deal more - when they feel like it and when they don't, consistently, day in, day out."
I want to be able to do all of the fun things I want to in life, happily and comfortably. Day-long hike? Check. Beach Volleyball? Check. Dance till dawn? Check. You know what I'm sayin.
Also, not be fat. That would also be good.
I've got a basic eating day plan. One of two choices for every meal every day (Breakfast: cereal or oatmeal. Lunch: salad or soup. Dinner: stir fry or veggie patty&veggies. Snacks: fruit or veggies. Simple simple simple.)If I can't stick to it I just make sure whatever I do eat stays within my calories (13-1400/day). I'll relax that on the weekend to allow for some drinks or random snacks, but still try to be reasonable (16-1800). My workouts are about every other day and are also really simple. Pushups&squats, burpees, or 10 minute trainer vids. Pilates and yoga from time to time just because it feels good. Being more active - going dancing, playing volleyball.
27 y/o business transplant, refocusing and now going for my teaching license. Do what's right and keep the hope alive!
I'm taking it easy this time and just trying to be sensible. I'm working on the idea of self-discipline in all areas of my life. Do what you think, not what you feel. So far, it's working better than any intense program, equipment, or anything else ever has.
