Top 10 Reasons to Smile!

I’ll let you in on a little secret I stumbled across that has made my transformation so much easier.

Have you ever seen someone running or exercising and it looks like they’re in complete pain?

You know the look, you’ve seen the guy.  All I can think when I see that is why is he putting himself through this.  That looks painful.  So I decided to try a little experiment and I tried smiling when I was walking or exercising and wow did it work!   I’m not even sure of all the reasons why it works, something to do with endorphins I guess, but like electricity, I don’t need to know how it works to be able to use and enjoy it.

So, without further ado, here are the top ten reasons to smile.. (more…)

Lose weight(my baby started off small and she turned out just fine)

Now you have to understand, I’ve tried, sometimes successfully, sometimes not to lose weight and get in shape no less than 100 times in the past (could be more, don’t really want to think about it).  Here was my standard protocol,

1. go grocery shopping, buy a ton of good food

2. make sure my gym membership is up to date so they don’t flag me when they see this stranger come in,

3. Get a diet/exercise log going

4. proceed to punish the hell out of my body as penance for all my bad deeds

5. usually make it about 14 days on a Body for Life sprint, (that’s a good run) only to fall flat on my face at which point I end up feeling like more of a failure than I ever did when I started.

So here’s where I was at.  I couldn’t go through that again.  Now, I don’t mean that I didn’t feel like it, I meant I really couldn’t do it.  I was at the point where I said to myself, I guess this is just as good as it gets and I should just learn to accept it.  No, we have to keep trying…somewhere in the echoes of my mind I could still hear Tony Robbins saying to me “you don’t fail unless you stop trying”…ok Tony, what’s not perfect, yet?  You’re fat, brother, that’s what’s not perfect!  My inner dialog kept going (I know nobody else out there talks to themselves like this, right?) Well, IF I was going to take another whack at this, what would I do?  What would it be like?  Better yet, if this experience could be anyway I wanted it to be, what would that look like?  Well, as long as we’re having fun with this, I thought, I said, “If it could be anyway, I would have it be easy”.  Now I know what you may be thinking, this is not easy, right?  Well, I just entertained the possibility.  I asked myself, “If it were easy, where would you start?” (more…)
