Fitness is a lifestyle. It is a conscious step we make each day to take care of ourselves. I like to think that keeping fit is an investment for my future. The minutes and hours spent each day exercising could mean added years of vitality and energy in my later years. I definitely want to be able to keep up with my grand kids one day. So put on your shoes, let's run!"
Saying "I want to lose weight" is never enough. Saying "I aim to lose 1lb per week through watching what I eat and working out 3 times a week of 30 minutess cardiovascular training, 20 minutes of weight training and 10 minutes of stretching per session" is more the real deal. The difference should be obvious.
Anyway.. I was sitting around actually working (how many calories does thinking burn an hour?).. and my boy Trauma comes online and we start talking about diet. Now I thought Trauma was really skinny based on his Yahoo! messenger icon. However he cleared that up by telling me that was Jesus from the Big Lebowski.. shit he was bowling so I thought it was Trauma. Anyway.. he has some experience losing weight and convinced me to start with the sugar intake. So instead of drinking 3-4 cokes a day I will switch to diet for 2 weeks. I will see how much I can lose just by that small change and possibly give myself some motivation to kick in some exercise.
I am going to put a fat-o-meter on the sidebar so you can all follow along too.. I have been reading about Axeman trying to lose weight.. now if I could only get him to take me to Vegas if I lose 30 pounds I would be all set..
