Crossfit Workout #1

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Devin and I went to his first workout yesterday! It was intense and exciting. We were on a circuit type thing doing some exercises I've never tried. The strongest part to me was the battle in my head. My heart was racing, my breathing labored, I kept hearing slow down, give up, this is lame, this hurts, this is stupid. I also kept hearing dig deeper, hold the squat longer, knees higher, good job, keep sweating, keep pushing. I gave it my all and I felt really good about it. I am so proud of my lil bro for pushing through too! He is a beast!

Contest

Monday, September 08, 2014

My little brother, a fellow heavy person, just won a contest at a local gym to get specialized help with nutrition and exercise for FREE!

I want to start making healthy changes again, so that I can take this journey with him.

I am ashamed it has been so long, but I need to get over it and just start working at again. I am prodigal sonning this business...look out...even if I have to do that a hundred times, at least it is progress.

  


Becoming successful at consistency

Friday, December 06, 2013

I think one of my biggest flaws is my lack of consistency. I dream big and set goals, but after a little while, I never follow through. I've started learning so many different instruments. I've tried losing weight a hundred different ways. I've tried organizing my house consistently to only have a clean house for two days and then it returns to it's ever messy tornado of disorganization. I don't think that I'm a complete failure by any means, but it is always a nagging feeling in the back of my head. I always think about what it would be like if I could play a beautiful concerto on my keyboard, but all I know is chopsticks.

When I'm healthy, I will be able to cross my legs without having to be reclined. I will be able to crouch into a small ball and hug my knees. I will be able to fit through turnstyles with out having to lift or turn funny. I will be able to use my laptop on my lap. I will be able to find clothes in more places. I will be able to run to catch the bus and not feel like I just finished a marathon. When I'm healthy, I will smell fried food and not want to eat three days worth of calories in one sitting. When I'm healthy, I will not feel torn choosing a salad over french fries. When I'm healthy, I will not feel like the fattest person in the room. I will not first think about whether I will be able to do physical activities without hurting myself. I will be able to change in the locker room and not want to cover every inch of skin.


:) Take that donuts!

    I want to be able to do some of the same things you mention so I totally feel you on those. Add to that the fact that I also have trouble staying consistent with food and household stuff. All too familiar.

Exercise...

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

I want to start exercising. I have Zumba for the playstation and for my dvd player. I have insanity and p90x. I need to schedule it in. How do I make time for that and time for my husband and I to watch our favorite tv show? I need to figure this out.
