    I'm trying to force myself off of my bed

    so I can get my workout started. I'm such a procrastinator.

    Starting Is Tough But Sticking With It Is Worth It

    Around mid 2008, I was a little over 200 lbs, which placed me in the overweight range. Way before then (when I graduated hs), I was 130 lbs . So it was veeeery noticeable that I had put on some weight since then! Going back to 2008, I was no stranger to running, but I never ran...

    I believe everyone can find something

    that fits their life. It may be as simple as walking every day or biking after work. Our bodies are not meant to be inactive.

    I Got Up And Decided To Make The Change!

    In April of last year (2009) I decided it was time to make a change in my life.  I decided to start working out with a personal trainer.  I was referred to her by one of my friends and at first I was feeling somewhat insecure and wondered if I am strong enough to...

    It's Not Easy Sometimes

    . It takes determination to stick to a regular workout schedule.  I admire people that can stick to their work out plan when life gets busy. I need a kick in the butt sometimes too but I am always glad afterwards.

    It's my Achilles' heel.

    You see, "an ideal mind is the devil's playground". And I've given the little red man enough of me already. My mind is off limits. And when I'm on the machines, with the weights, switching inclines, fighting myself to keep pushing, sweating and wanting to quit, looking at the...

    Everyone disses on cardio.

    It's really not that bad once you build up a tolerance for it. It's just the tolerance building that sucks.

    Push-Ups

    Since I can't get to the gym I do bodyweight workouts. Last night was a push night and I did 257 reps of different types of push-ups. I love push night because you can see the difference in triceps and chest so much more easily than in biceps and back.

    An All Day Workout.

    There are no excuses to be out of shape these days with all the gym memberships, DVD training, diet plans or just an old treadmill at home. If you put a sugar filled candy or sweet in your mouth after digesting the biggest slice of pizza you could get, there's no way you could...

    Always Strive For Strength

    I need to be in tip top strength to survive this world. The people who laugh and make fun of me need to get punched in the face, and someone has to do it. Might as well be me.

    After a day in the books like I had yesterday,

    I like to go stretch out in the gym. I had so really good cardio work out yesterday. Lots of static bike, and cross trainer. I also did some kind of gymnastic exercises too on the mat.
