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.

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.

Here is an attachement with some help for us. I hope it is of use to you. As always all the best to you all. Jose G Osuna www.lapbandformen.com

Decide., Just Decide.

DECIDEAn amazing quote from a controversial man.

Regardless.. Words have power and this quote

is a lot more than the man who said it.

DECIDE, Take action, DO something.

Realize that being afraid of something

is not the end but the beginning of something.

Deciding that we want something that bad

and going after it wholeheartedly.

There are so many unknowns and

just so much out there for us to do.

When was the last time you went out

on a romantic date with someone new?

I am unable to remember.

When was the last time you tried a

new dish or prepared a new salad?

What was the most exciting breakfast food

you have had in the last month? Year?

When was the last time you actually got excited

about a new pair of shoes, tie or dress?

We are creatures of habits and knowing that

we must try to step out of the routine and

keep our meals, workouts, interactions and

YES our life exciting. Interesting.

We have one life and it is short

at is longest. We are working on our

health, weight, diet, longevity well let’s

make it count. Let’s enjoy this life of ours.

I don’t know what would do it for you but

for me a long ride on a motorcycle would

be as good as therapy eating chocolate cake.

Find one or ten things that excite you and

go do one or two or all of them.

Go live. Go enjoy.

Monday, Monday.

all you need is a monday.What are the characteristics of true change?

What is it that makes us from one day to

the other decide that we have had enough?

What is it that makes it possible to say:

No more, Never again.

For me it was a lengthy stay in the Hospital.

What did it for you? And,

If you have not had your epiphany yet think

What will it take.

I hope no one else has my experience of

looking up at several Doctors baffled about

my condition clearly not knowing what to do next.

Gang it is not easy but it is not complicated either.

It is Monday. Let’s get back to basics.

Drink the water, Measure your portions,

Increase your activity, Take your meds.

Go to the support groups, Take your vitamins.

Really it is easy to do but as Mr. Jim Rohn

would say:”what is easy to do is also easy not to do”

Be weird, let’s all be weird and let’s be doers.

Carpe Diem! or Carpe The Monday!

Let’s work today on a better tomorrow.

The Meds In Our Days.

Pills

I know very well that I have to take certain meds

every single day. At very specific times.

 I know that I need them.

But What to do when for whatever reason we

are unable to take them. What to do when

the pain hits and you are unable to function.

If you are depressed or dealing with fibro

with out your meds you might as well

just sit and breath as there is not much else

you can do. I KNOW.

There are many reason why we at times are

unable to take our meds as prescribed and

we must avoid that by any means but when it

happens try to have a plan B even if it is just

to howl at the moon in a therapeutic fashion.

or fantasize about inflicting the same pain

on some one who has not kept their promises.

Hope you never go through putting up with pain

because of lack of meds… It Sucks

If you use lyrica or Cymbalta like I do you know

how severe the withdrawals are if you do not

follow the prescribed times.

I guess I am just venting and letting my own

body know that we still have more battles to

fight in the future. All in all pains and all

I am grateful to be alive today.

I wish you all a great one today and always.
