Just Move.

imageI used to have this gym teacher back in high school, you know the type…..totally insane. He used to go off on these tangents all of the time about laziness and squeezing exercises in between commercial breaks while watching tv. I was in shape then (sick tbt pic this thursday😜) I didn’t need this dumb advice…..Well, I wish that I would have written it down and had it tattooed on me later in life, because there I was overweight, unmotivated, unhealthy….I think you get the picture.

The truth is that crazy gym teacher, while no doubt absolutely insane, was one hundred percent right. He was like the only man in the horror movies that warned the camp counselors about the impending doom they were going to face and they just laughed it off. I should have remembered his advice and it’s advice that I am imparting on all of you. The guy was an undercover genius. His advice was “Just Move”.image

I’m writing this because there gets to be a point in overweight or out of shape people’s lives that makes them terrified of going to any gym or working out in any public setting. I mean there’s literally a whole gym franchise build around that fact as a “judgement free zone.” So here is my wisdom that I have gained throughout all of these years:

A) Nobody really cares if you’re out of shape and at the gym. The truth is most people are inspired by you being there and will help you. Most people even the in shape super buff born with genetically perfect bodies ones go to the gym with the same purpose they want to walk in, not be bothered, work out, and leave. There is no secret society of in shape people at a gym that sit around and watch security camera footage while drinking protein shakes laughing at all of the out of shape people.image

B) If you still feel like you can’t make it to the gym because of time or insecurity, just move! Do something! Like my gym teacher said back then, do sit-ups during commercial breaks. Buy a bike or a treadmill or an elliptical to use while you are watching tv. Do some calisthetics while the next episode of Game of Thrones is on. Fire your landscaper and start mowing your own lawn. Go for a walk with the dog every day or new moms, go out for a walk with your baby in the stroller. There’s things that you can do without going to the gym right away. Baby Steps if you are uncomfortable. Trust me I feel you.

C) Find someone to motivate you. A workout buddy or a group of workout buddies. Safety in numbers. There is a reason that Crossfit is so popular and I actually envy their support system of their members in this regard. They are constantly motivating each other. Especially their coaches. Shoutout to Tyler McBride of Crossfit 516 the most motivating guy with the most energy I’ve ever seen. I’ve known him for a while mostly during my “screw it I’m gonna sit here and not work out and eat terribly and hate on Crossfit” days. I’ve watched his snapchats for one week and I can tell you, guy’s positivity is super intense. So if you need a push that might be the thing for you. Hey, maybe I’ll even give it a try one of these days. (Yeah, I said it).image

I say this because people will say that there is no exact science to losing weight, and it is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Before I chose the path that I’m on now, I was actually studying to be a scientist. Yeah that’s right, I was a biochemistry major. So here’s the secret to weight loss success…..are you ready? Calories Burned minus Calories Consumed = Weight Loss Result. If you burn more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. FACT.  So just get up off the couch, you know what stay there even if you want, do some sit ups on it, but do something, anything, just move. You can do it I have faith in you. Baby steps. You will succeed.image

  1. Assouline , 5% vraiment ? il ne s’agit plus à ce niveau d’une édition, mais bien d’une reddition. Un renoncement de la part des auteurs, ilotes à la merci de leurs maîtres.C’est assez incompréhensible ; sans le créateur l’éditeur n’existe pas, alors que le premier nommé peut aujourd’hui se passer du second ; son anxiété fiévreuse de se voir édité est -elle si forte pour que l’écrivain se laisse tondre ?

  3. Oh, they still make 1969 jeans here. Just not that CUT. The pockets are a very particular size and distance apart, a mathematical equation that I should figure out because it’s the key to optical butt minimization.Can you have a gap between your sleeves and shoulders? Maybe you can buy – or make- those sleeves that are just sleeves. Like legwarmers for your arms. I’m all about going the distance to make one inconvenient item of clothing work, so it can stay in the closet.

The main roadbump to start using Google Voice is how to get all your friends and business contacts to start using your google number instead of your normal one!I think Avakit can solve this though!!

  14. Together with everything which appears to be building throughout this subject material, all your points of view are generally fairly exciting. On the other hand, I am sorry, but I can not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it radical none the less. It seems to us that your opinions are not totally rationalized and in fact you are yourself not even entirely certain of the point. In any event I did take pleasure in looking at it.

Le seul spécialiste que j’ai vu justifier ses refus d’arrêt a réussi à me convaincre… au moins sur ce cas : si le motif de l’arrêt n’apparaît pas sur le volet donné à l’employeur, le tampon du prescripteur oui…Et malheureusement quand on voit « psychiatre » par exemple, ça reste connoté, et une partie de secret vole…

  22. Alejandro on Hola,Pues me encanta que hables de sombreros, pero he de decirte que te has olvidado de nosotros. Además algunos que tenemos la suerte de tener alopecia disfrutamos mucho con los sombreros.

Me chifla tu logo.Sigue así, yo vendré de vez en cuando a verte

  26. Again. Tanking games would be pointless when we dont even have a first round pick in this years draft. That pick was going to the clippers in the sam cassel trade years ago. That pick was traded to New Orleans in the Chris Paul trade. We could possibly get Utah’s pick from the Jefferson trade, but Utah would have to be the 8th seed and lose in the first round. Other wise there will be no 1st round picks.

  27. Ultimately! We spent many hours to discover these records! I used to be previously once in your go to, although not enrolled sporting her address! I never will commit this blunder! Added onto faves!: )

  29. 5a8Va consumati energia aici, convingandu-va intre voi (ca nu veti vedea un om de alta parere – in afara de postacii platiti- sa va citeasca). Discutati, mai bine masuri, actiuni ce trebuie facute. Nu va calmati nervii izolandu-va intr-un forum, luati baioneta si atacati, ca va termina astia de tot.
