Video #4: Fear and Opprotunities

Sunday, October 21, 2012

I just realised that the sound and video quality are horrible on these videos. I knew they were bad, but I just realized how bad they really were.
I'm not entirely sure I spelled "Opprotunities" correctly, but I don't really care.
Also, I think, for every person who comments on this blog entry, until I put up the next video blog. I'll do 20 minutes of exercise and message them what exercise I did for their comment. I think I'm going to turn the rugby guy down. I don't think it fits me well.
Which brings up another issue. I've been seeing lately that all my actions have been reactions from things others do, in the past or the present.
Whether it's trying to better myself so I can prove I'm better than them, or other things.

    I can't tell you what to do. I do know there was a guy where I live and he had a very bad weight issue in high school. I was very proud of the fact he played football. It showed me that he is willing to do something to help himself. Whether you do the gym thing or or rugby. At least you are doing something active. Having others encourage you to keep going may be just what you need to stay active. It will be hard at first. You will have better days than others. Just remember over time you will get stronger and go farther and faster. I'm pulling for you. emoticon

    I think personally if you enjoy playing rugby then go for it, and dont let the fear of not knowing keep you from doing it. I need to do that same when it comes to my volleyball which I plan on doing next week (unless I go to Zumba) Sports can be a great way of sneaking in the exercise since you have so much fun playing it doesnt feel like a boring workout. Hope you figure out just what you want to do and I look forward to the next video!!! emoticon

    Join a rugby team huh? When you told people that you'd join them for fitness unless you had something else planned, they're already playing hardball! :-P

    I hope you can start to establish which things are excuses, and which things you don't have time for. I do feel the rugby guy followed the guidelines of your contract, but I do see that two hours a day is A LOT. But if you think it'll be worth it and you'll make some friends, I'd say go for it if you can!

    About the wheat thins and chips, sometimes our bodies tend to fluctuate in metabolism. I'm not sure what your daily metabolic rate is, but some people go into something called starvation mode when it's too low, and their bodies will hold onto stored fat and then the weight plateaus. Your body may have been fed enough that day to get rid of some weight, however don't get too comfortable with that idea, a wheat thins diet won't work! I'm also not sure if it was really starvation mode, maybe you could have lost more had it not been for the chips, but who knows? As long as you get into eating healthier a lot more days than not, you'll be on the right track regardless of size! Congrats on the 3lbs this week!

    Ok Matt.... here's your first 20 min! Don't forget to report back to me as to what you did!!! emoticon I myself think the rugby team is a little much for you right now. Although you are a pretty young guy but I think physically and mentally you're not quite ready for the commitment that goes with being on the team.
    You and I need to commit to something though. I'm like you cuz I hate to workout. My "excuse" is I have fibromyalgia and it hurts to damn much.... emoticon
    I just have to start doing a few min. a day of something!! Maybe every hour, I can move; walk, stretch, resistence bands, dance for just a few minutes.....I don't know, but we have to start doing something or we're not going to make it. I've lost 28 Lb. and want to hit the 30 lb. loss mark by 11/6/12 (my six mo. anniversary) I will be very happy with that!
    What are you going to do....any ideas????
