Working On Me.

body under constructionIs it just me or, at times it seems harder to convince

our minds to get a “Move On” that it is for our bodies

to feel ready and up to it.

I noticed on my last visit to the gym that my mind

tried all the way through my work out to convince me

with many rather creative arguments that we should

just pack it up and go back home.

I am telling you all that I have long tiring arguments

about religion, politics and history and never have I

encountered a more determined adversary than

my own mind.

Quite a learning experience and I used a technique

an old trainer of mine thought me back in Mexico when

I was into competitive weight lifting.

He said “Win one battle at a time., first get up then

get out after that just get to the gym., Then is when it

will get interesting he said. One routine after another

and then and only then when you are done you can agree

with your reluctant mind and go home.

Never forget that every battle counts and you should fight

to the end and never ever give up because also, every

time you loose the battle it counts., it counts against you.

Nothing but winners here so gang let’s keep on keeping on.

Also if you think yourself a winner or a fighter go find

the podcast “every day is Saturday” by my very good

friend Sam Crowley. Very good and inspiring stuff.

Choices.

choicesThe way I see it if my Coach hits me with “Choices”

I share the theme with you.

From the moment we get up… No.. From the moment

we wake up we are confronted with choices and options.

What attitude will we have,  What mood will we bring with us,

Will we follow our diet,  Are we working-out,

Are we going for our walk. Are we……….

We have choices the question now is:

What will we do?

Use our choices to be better or….

Have our ass handed to us for being weak.

Inspiration.

 definition of hellIn Case we needed more inspiration.

The thought of this happening scared the

sleep out of my eyes for two nights.

How frightening to realize that we have failed

to use all of the options life had for us.

Let’s do the best we can now and always.

Crap.

crapEating clean does not mean going all crazy

but there are basic items that we all know

we must avoid.

This is the bet acronym I could find to

show this.

Keep it simple, keep it real.

Basic No More.

you cant do grat things with average peopleWho wants to live a basic life?

For those of us on this race we know that we

are trying to live life to the fullest and

the least of our thoughts is to have a

better today and tomorrow than our

yesterdays.

It is clear that weight loss helps improves

the quality of life.

I have all this dreams and desires that I want

to see come to pass and because

I might  or not have the time and health

I want to make the most of every day.

Keep the basics in mind every day

measure your portions, drink the water,

increase the activity, plan your exercise.

We know what we need to do so now let’s

go and do it.

Gang let’s make every day count.

Simple Rules.

4 simplel rulesWhile nothing in weight loss is simple even with Weight Loss Surgery

it does not help when we make things overly complicated.

In trying to explain to my Coach what my system is in selecting

my food items she promptly noticed and shared with me areas

where I might be over complicating my efforts.

Yes we want to have exact portions but a close enough

portion when eating out is good enough and we know based

on our prior experience what is a proper portion.

Exercise or activity is easy enough to track and now with all the

technological possibilities when our phone can as easily count our

steps and calories burned there is no reason not to have a rather

accurate idea of where we are at the end of the day.

Tracking is also possible with a multitude of free apps for both

android and iPhone products.

Since my next big challenge is tracking I am going back to using

the form I had developed and should it be of help to anyone else

I am giving it for free to you at the end of this post.

Please take a look at it and see if you can find a way to improve

on it I am no spread sheet genius so you will not offend me if

you can help me make it a better one.

My Coach keeps telling me that if I do not record it it din’t happen.
