"Part of the fun of excercising is the indulgence of forming a workout track."
I have this crazy idea that exercise should be a positive thing. I know, I know, I really am just talking crazy right? NO WAY!
I really don’t know where the idea came from, and there are time you SHOULD push yourself, but a healthy lifestyle should be about enjoying a more active lifestyle. Any thoughts?
"This has been a week of schedule havoc. I have been plateau this week, I am hoping it is because of new muscle growth. I gave up yogurt for Lent, which means more salads and humus. Sleep schedule still a little wonky with the double-shift I pulled last Friday. I’m recovering but the spring break has made some noticeable changes to my routine, fortunately next week should have things back on track."
I have hit that time where exercise is the key to my body sculpting. Weight loss, if it is rapid (within a year) leads to the skin getting baggy and the “lumps” as I have come to call them. Lumps are that hard packed fat that is the last to break down and always makes you hate your body as your losing.
Don’t BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF!
Generally as we age, the elastic-ness in the skin recovers more slowly. Just as birthing and getting ripped can give you stretch marks, fast weight loss can make you flabby. That is why this year is all about the gym on the blog…. Focus on cardio and aerobics to help tighten you up. You may find that you’ll need the vitamin E (cream not internal) to help that skin look healthier.
In fact there is a dermatologist on You Tube that does a pretty good job.

"It has been a hard week, but happily I have fought to keep routines and calories in check. I’m glad Lent is coming so I have that motivation to help tow the line."
Plan to make some homemade humus to help get through the cold winter chill.
And maybe catch up on some movies.
"Don’t feed your emotions. Understand them."
"Yes, shivering does burn calories, but a cold can result in water weight gain. Got to weigh your options, people."
"Dropped another pound since last weigh, woot."
