Loving Life and Having a Blast
11 days until my 2nd marathon. I'm psyched. I'm ready. Still want to lose a couple pounds. Last year I ran in the "Clydesdale Division." That's the name they decided on for men over 200 pounds. What? Couldn't they think of a more degrading name? Overweight women get to run in the "Athena Division." Much cooler name. If the "Clydesdale's" were "Zeuse's" I'd be at the Chinese restaurant right now, not worrying about this dumb stuff.
As it stands, I got the scale down to 199. Only one pound lighter than a "Clydesdale", but it's 10 pounds lighter than I was last year. I'm thinking positive, and doing my affirmations. They say we teach what we most need to learn in this life. And I know, I'll "See it when I believe it" as Dr. Wayne Dyer says. All seriousness aside, though, I really am loving life lately. I've got some great personal training clients I'm working with. They're getting fast results, as I'm hammering away on mindset and perspective. If you really want to change your body shape, and/or your health it isn't just the one hour workout, it's what you do the other 23 hours each day.
Although the scale could be nicer to me, I can't complain about my training results. I can fit into my "skinny jeans." I read somewhere that real men don't have skinny jeans. That is a bunch of B.S. Next thing you know, they'll be saying that real men don't shave their legs!
