Not Quite Boot Camp

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:14 pm by Drew

I don't know that anyone will read this, but I'm going to say it anyway...

Starting Sunday, I'm getting off my butt and doing what I'm supposed to. For the past three weeks, I've been getting up early and going to the gym, but I haven't followed it up with cardio and diet. (Cardio - no excuse. Diet - its been a bit hectic)

So I'm making a public commitment to do better for at least the next …

Come Run With Us

Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:54 pm by Drew

Marcus and I did the Walt Disney World half marathon on January 9. We both had done a half marathon before, but never in such a large group.

The run was great. It started outside EPCOT, ran over Disney roads, then through the Magic Kingdom (including running through Cinderella's castle), and back to EPCOT.

While it was fun, it would have been better in two ways: 1. not be so stinking cold …

Boot Camp is Over. Now What?

Fri Apr 09, 2010 3:53 pm by Drew

One of the worst things about boot camp is when it ends. Yes, it is wonderful to not have people yelling at you to "Hold Plank!!" for an hour, but what do you do after that in order to not lose the progress you made?

Let's get some ideas, people!

A Shot of Motivation for those in need

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:04 pm by Drew

A couple thoughts to motivate you in the hard times.

If you quit when things get hard, you will never realize exactly what you can do and how far you can go.

The saying goes "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I'd like to add that pain is also a way to remember that you were built for more than eating and sitting. I remember some of the days that were the hardest and I HATED …

Confession Corner

Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:01 pm by Drew

Okay, so I did boot camp last year. Three of them, in fact. Since then... let's just say I fell off the wagon and haven't tried to catch it till recently.

I went from 270 (1/09) to 237 (8/09), mostly because of boot camp. However, after August, I have done very little, except run occassionally. I'm back around 255. I CONFESS!!

I know that I am not the only one. Someone else 'fess up. …

We all know that using correct posture is beneficial to the body, but have you ever thought about the difference it makes in your appearance? My middle sister has the worst posture. She walks around shuffling her feet, knees slightly bent and shoulders rounded. She’s such a smart girl, although her posture makes her appear insecure and lazy. When I make her stand up straight she looks simply beautiful - and it even makes you look thinner! What a difference good posture can make!

When I interview employees, the ones with great posture always stand out. It screams confidence and poise. Some of the most striking people I’ve met were not only attractive but practiced good posture. Think of how the stars look when they hit the red carpet. Sure they have great clothes but they wouldn’t look as fabulous in them if they were slouched over.

Although most people will agree that they should improve their posture, they often have many excuses for not correcting it. I hear excuses all the time. “I’m just tired”. “I look ridiculous” or “it feels unnatural”. Some girls feel like they are sticking out their chest which makes them uncomfortable. No matter how one feels or how hard it is to improve, working on your posture can make a difference and is worth the effort.

I know how hard it is. I used to have horrible posture myself. It started when I was young. Being five feet nine inches tall by my early teens, I was a little insecure about being taller than my boyfriend – if I could even get one to go out with the jolly lean giant. My answer was slouching down to everyone else’s level. The next thing you know, I am all grown up, married and still hunched over. It wasn’t until after my husband pointed out my bad posture that I actually even took notice.

Correcting my posture didn’t happen overnight. My muscles were tight which didn’t allow me to straighten up all the way. After strengthening and stretching my muscles with exercise it got a lot easier to stand up straight. I still fall into bad posture, especially when I am on my computer. Now that I am much more aware of my posture, I just make a conscious effort to correct it through out the day. I still have a little work to do, but I’m headed in the right direction and I feel great.

So, next time you are reading about the latest beauty product or plastic surgery procedure, don’t forget the best beauty secret of all – good posture! It’s free and it can make anyone look and feel like a million dollars!

NOTE: If you really work hard on your posture DURING your workout, you will beging having better posture the rest of the day.
