The holiday is almost over and I'm feeling fluffy. I've eaten so much forbidden food that I refused to weigh myself... until yesterday. I knew I must have gained some weight because I was eating like there was no tomorrow (of course I'm exaggerating alittle). Anyways, I took the plung and got on my pink bathroom scale...and the gage was stuck! So I jumped on it until it moved. That should tell you how often I use the thing. Well, it finally moved! I fearfully stepped on expecting to have gained at least 3 pounds! I didn't gain anything!! Man! I was disappointed and relieved at the same time. I am trying to gain muscle, so I was looking to put on some weight. I'm hopeful that the fat loss is equal to the muscle gain, that could be why I weigh the same after many months of training. I just have that body type that doesn't gain weight easily (good) Well, I'm looking forward to making more strength gains in 2012! Not worried about getting cut, just glad to be healthy and strong =)
Oh My Gosh...another holiday to over eat! Well, I'm going to be good and just eat smaller portions of my favorite foods =)
Exercise has been consistant for me but, I'd have to say the mode has changed. I've found myself leaning towards calisthenics and ditching the weights. Not only is the form of exercise natural, you don't need a gym membership! All you need is a great workout and commitment. Being able to balance your own body weight using a wide variety of exercises is the ultimate goal. Once you've accomplished that challenge then you can add additional weights. But I doubt that will ever happen to me.
Longterm commitment is the only obstacle to achieving any goal. But I find obtaining fitness is a huge problem in America. Every year there is a new get fit fad that many struggling individuals are eager to jump on board. My goodness, how many times can we reinvent fitness? It's been around forever and many still can't find the right program for themselves. They bounce around like a ping pong ball trying new programs relentlessly and never achieving true fitness.
How about those that believe that special diets are the way to fitness. They go on detox diets, go vegan, and drink crazy mixtures in hopes of melting the extra pounds away. I just sigh as I watch them abuse their bodies internally knowing that they will eventually quit and move onto a new weight loss fad. Never reaching their goal!
Fitness is sensible, realistic, healthy eating and exercise! Why do we make something simple soo hard to do?
