This week’s topic:
Your fitness Idol: Everyone has an idol when it comes to anything. Who inspires you to do what yo’re doing? Who inspires you to try harder?
See my sidebar for "blogs that inspire me". Mostly, though, my daughter inspires me. Having grown up in a single parent household, I know I don't want that for my daughter. The best way to prevent it is to take care of myself. She is also a good trainer at 8 years old. She encourages me, keeps me honest with myself, keeps me on track for my goals. She's simply amazing.
Now for the catsup~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eating Out! It’s summer, and for a lot of people that means more holidays, more vacation, and more eating out at restaurants. What restaurant satisfies your tastebuds and your health conscience?
Whenever possible, I check the menu online before I leave home and plan ahead. Grilled chicken salad or baked/broiled fish are my standbys. Local diners are my favorite.
Some people can answer this is one word, others have tried many videos. Some of us have found that one that works, and others are still looking.
Workout Videos have been a staple in women’s fitness for a long time, but now it’s become common for a man to use them as well.
So what Videos have you tried, and how well did they work for you? Have you found THE ONE?
I find I can't do the same video over and over, but I love almost every video Richard Simmons has ever made. The man is a comedian. He makes me laugh. I also like the Billy Blanks Jr. cardioke. The people take some getting used to, but it's fun and different.
Most days I use my Wii game called Walk It Out if I have to exercise inside.
What do you wear when you workout? Something cool? Something warm? Do you want to sweat? Are you avoiding heat stroke? Or do you just dance around in your underwear in your living room?
If I'm outside, I'll be wearing either my swimsuit or shorts & a tank top. I suppose I'll have to move onto sweats and a t shirt soon with the NW Ohio weather. If I'm inside, it's a tshirt and shorts.
That wasn't so hard. I guess I wasn't as far behind as I felt. I find that is often true with avoidance - it makes things seem worse than they are. Definitely, avoidance is not a good coping tool and is one of the many crutches I'm going to have to rid myself of as my journey continues.
