My Journey To Being Healthier: Up and Downs
Posted 16 September 2011 - 05:59 PM
In the past my discouragement from finding a successful path has always been lack of results. Also not being educated enough in what I need to achieve my goal. I've generally eat well but always felt lost when it came to working out. For once I now feel I am on track.
Today will be the 1st day of a new video Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. I figure if 30 day shred video showed results, so will this.

In all I am actually excited about my progress. Funny how working out and eating right actually works.

good to hear man.. I'm getting to the point where i need to switch somethign up and get on a course, myself.
Ha, yeah I hear that. My biggest issue was beer. As you know I'm a huge fan of micro brews. I've had to cut down on that and stick to lighter beers like Fat Tire and Long Trail Ale.
You inspire me!
Awesome, you saying that actually does the same for me. It's not easy sticking with this stuff, but knowing that I'm inspiring people by my simple actions is motivation enough.
good for you !
I, too, have been incorporating some changes diet-wise and exercise-wise
getting results is the best motivation ever !
Thanks, and your right results have become a real push for me, especially on days when I don't want to work out. I keep telling myself it's only 30mins of my day, it's not asking much. Get off your ass and do it.

As an added bonus I actually ate relatively healthy at the festival. Most of the time I use to use festivals as an excuse to eat more then i usually do and most of all junk food that I don't normally eat. Not this time. I was good about my portions. Most of all I was good about my choices with what I ate. I really enjoyed all the local organic food that was offered. It was a nice change from the fast food crap that usually exists at festivals.

I decided since I am running the Marine Corp 10k next weekend Saturday was a good day to finally do a 6 miler. The only problem was I've never ran 6 miles before. About 5 miles in I realized 1 mile more really wasn't anything, pushed myself, and finished 6.2 miles with no problem. My legs felt like jello after the run but I felt really good about it overall. This coming Sunday's 10k will be a snap, especially with all those other people around me running. I just have to remember to keep my pace.

On a side note I just signed up for a 8k race in December. It should be an easy one for me since I normally run 5 miles anyways.
