Worrying about tomorrow’s problems stalls today’s solutions

Rant and Tip for July 18, 2012

Quote: Worrying about tomorrow’s problems stalls today’s solutions. – Unknown

Good morning all!

भारत से गुड मॉर्निंग मेरे दोस्त.मैं अपने समर्थन और पाठकों के लिए एक विशेष आप के लिए शुक्रिया कहना चाहता हूँ.वहाँ दिन है कि मेरे भारतीय दर्शकों संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में अपने दर्शकों से भी बड़ा है.

Now back to the quote of the day. To often when we fall off the wagon in regards to our eating plan or our exercise plan we dwell on it to much. Do not get me wrong here it is important to understand why it happend, but do not beat yourself up about it. This just creates stress and when we stress it releases the hormone cortisol. This hormone can actually make it more difficult to lose fat. Instead look ahead to today and do not make those same mistakes. Every day is the start of the rest of your life. Every day is a new beginning to your journey to health and wellness. Afterall we change our diets and prepare a workout schedule for the purpose of being healthier in the future. Not for our past.

Some people when dieting will slip up during the day by eating something off plan and then decide to throw the towel in for the day and start again the next day. Do not do this. Once you travel down that slippery slope it is harder to come back the next day. After you realize what you have done make a point at that moment to stay more focused on the rest of the day. Again do not beat yourself up over it, just apply yourself to your goal and don’t do it again. If you doctor told you, your son or daughter had an allergy to a food, you would not eat it. Treat sugars as an allergy to you. I once read a quote off the Atkins forum. The woman stated “I am allergic to sugar, it makes me break out in fat”.  I love this quote and use it whenever I am offered cakes, cookies, ice cream or some other sweet food.

Training went well yesterday and the back extensions felt great. I need to keep working them along with good mornings. I really want develope a stronger lower back to get big numbers in the dead-lift and squat. Today the plan for me is benching. Last Sunday I benched in the shirt. Today will be raw. I feel I need to do this to stay strong raw. My training before the world meet was all shirted and it affected my raw strength negatively. I am getting that strength back now and hope to hit some raw numbers soon that will put me in the world record range for a 50 year old man. My training needs to be both smart and consistant.

Have a great workout!

Tip: Be sure your activities are compatible with your age and physical condition. To many times we want to jump right into an exercise program only to be too sore to walk the next day. This is defeating and can lead to giving up completely.

  1. Best of luck with your workout.. I too enjoy my workouts, but I am not in any kind competition! Did enough of that when I was young.. although maybe it would get me doing more!! When I teach 11 classes a week I often don't have the energy to do my own workouts.. (I am not a fitness leader that stands at the front and watches)

    I love your quote, good one to adopt!! And I do agree that once you go down the slippery road it is hard to get back on track!! Easier to just not go there!
