Motivation To Be Fit

Over the years post high school, I go back and forth on my weight. I will get to a point we’re I am just no happy nor comfortable with the shape of my figure. I also start to lose the weight, but once I get to a certain point, I stop and start to eventually gain it all back. 

We have all been there…

Starting a workout routine is like starting a new job some place. You are excited to start this new eventure and see where it takes you. You are nervous because you are unsure if you’ll like it, but you need this in your life. Once you are there for a few months, you are shocked by how much time has passed and how good you’ve become. 

My problem is, once I get to a certain point, I get bored. I know my figure will never look like it did back in my track and field days. I was fit. I felt great about myself. When looking in the mirror, after several months of working out, I just don’t see the results fast enough. Or, I simply become bored and find other things that peak my interest more. 

Motivation…

This is what is needed to keep yourself involved. This is what you need to keep yourself moving towards your end goal. Unfortunately, I tend to start to loose this motivation. 

Need Some Motivation…

What keeps you motivated?

What routines have worked for you?

What have you done to change your life to get yourself into a healthy lifestyle?

Struggling…

I need some motivation, now more than ever, to get myself back on a healthy routine. I work from home and have many workout programs in my DVD collection. I just, for the life of me, can not figure out how to jump start this routine. 

Any suggestions and/or advise would be greatful. 

Please comment and let me know what keeps you motivated and what you have found works best for you.

Glimpse Into My Life Series

This series gives you some real insight to my life, the ups and downs that I have had, and amazing memories that I have shared. It took some looking back on some (good and bad), and I had to be brave on others. 

Many readers of this site have learned a great deal about me with these posts. From amazing times when I asked my wife to marry me, to sad times when my best friend moved away. One thing that I have always focused on is the truth. I have always viewed myself as an open book, and I wanted to share my story. 

I have some more “Glimpses Into My Life” posts coming up. From bad decisions I have made to amazing moments I have been in, I want to continue sharing my life and my story. 

If you have not read any or just a few of this series, I would recommend clicking on the link below and start from the first post. There are a total of nineteen, so far, in this series. I do hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I enjoyed writing them.

New Year, New Goals…

Dear Readers:

I know I haven’t been staying up-to-date on my blog.  A few things in life has changed over the past few months, and it has made it difficult to have a few moments to keep this blog updated.

What’s changed: A new career path.  I finally left a job that I didn’t feel appreciated at… or rather… a job that I felt was becoming routine and doing a position that I wasn’t hired to do.  I am now working for AT&T.  This is a big move, but a very good move, for me.  I have always enjoyed electronics, especially mobile electronics, and now I can help customers with theirs.

For this new year, I have decided to make some goals… as I don’t believe in resolutions, I believe in making goals.  Below will be a list of goals that I would like to accomplish this year… we will call it… hmmm… let’s say: “The 2014 Bucket” goals list.  I’m going to focus on a lot of miner things, as one major goal will be harder to approach.  So here it is…

  1. Exercise.  I am currently weighing 204.  I want to be around 190-200, with less than 13% body fat.  I am around 25-30% body fat now.
  2. Read.  I currently read a lot of tech information online, and I stay up-to-date with politics, however; I don’t get the chance to read many books.  I would like to change that this year.  I am going to try to shoot for a book every two months (a small goal of 6 books this year, but it gives me a starting point), and also continue reading my tech/politics news too.
  3. Anger Management.  I feel that I can get snappy at times.  I do know that I am hard-headed, and I can be stubborn at times… This year I am going to focus on taking a deep breath and find a solution to the problem before freaking out.  Over the years, I have gotten better, but I still find myself get angry at times.
  4. Eating Habits.  (this goes with exercise) I need to start eating healthier.  I have noticed myself stopping at McDonalds more frequently, and eating unhealthy food sold at the mall.  I need to get myself back on fruit/vegetables, and I need to start eating smaller meals throughout the day.
  5. Thoughts. I feel this goes with Anger Management.  I need to start sharing my thoughts on my blog more.  This blog allows me to share my opinions and to talk about my life’s events.  Sharing is a great way to decrease the stress in your life.
  6. Lastly… I want to be the man that my future Mrs. deserves.  I want to be a man that she can count on and will come through for her.

I will look at these goals again mid-year and at the end of the year.  If you have any tricks or tips, or would just like to give some words of encouragement, I would appreciate it

How My Life Has Changed…

Almost six months ago it was the first of the year… I told myself, as the ball dropped, that this new year will be the follow-up to last years “being my year”.  I told myself that it was time to seek hope.  It was time to seek life.  It was time to seek love.

As the year started… everything seemed like it was the same ol’ same ol’.  I didn’t notice anything changing.  I seemed to continue to walk the same path that I had for the past year.  It seemed no matter how hard I actually tried, I couldn’t push myself into a new direction.

I was talking to someone online from time to time that I had hopes for, but I knew in the back of my mind that it wouldn’t lead to anything… story of my life. lol  However, Valentine’s Day was coming and I thought to myself… Maybe she’ll want to be my date?  I asked her and was shot down, but something else arose from my question… she asked me on a date the week before.

We ended up going out to a restaurant a few days after that conversation.  We went one evening after I got off of work (Thursday night, Feb 7th) to Scotty’s Brewhouse.  We had a great time.  The dinner was fantastic.  The conversation was fantastic.  The mood was fantastic.  It seemed like we both really enjoyed each other’s company.

Flash forward to today…

We have moved in together and have a love for each other that seems, hmmmm… almost as if we have known each other all of our lives.  Maybe it was from a past life??? Maybe true love/soulmates really do exist.  I really do not know how or why, but I do know that it feels like home.  It feels like I have never been complete until she was introduced into my life.

My family loves spending time with her.  She loves spending time with my family.  A BIG DIFFERENCE from my past relationships, and this is something that is very important to me.  I love spending time with her family, as well as they love spending time with me.  Everyone has accepted our relationship and has approved of our relationship… not that we need the approval; however, it is nice when family stands behind you and supports your decision.

We both have started to workout… become more fit… Get active.  However you would like to word it.  I have seen a major change in my health.  I have gone from 235+ lbs to 198 as of yesterday.  My body is becoming more toned as I hit the weights hard and use Insanity as my cardio.  My lady has seen her body tone up and become more stronger.

I am for sure that many more changes and surprises are still to come with this relationship.  We have a chemistry that I have never experienced before, and it is an amazing feeling.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds…

To Be Continued…
