GROW YOUNG FITNESS

12 JULY 2018

1st work out.

It took me since December 22, 2017 to get here. But I finally arrived. I thought it wouldn’t be challenging enough. That first work out was more of a work out than I expected. I look forward to the next one. Three times a week they recommend in a particular order to achieve the best results.

Take a look, then give it a try. It’s free. http://growyoungfitness.com/exercises-for-seniors

I realize now that I needed a motivational tool to discipline my workouts. Grow Young Fitness is a good fit for me. Steve joined too after returning from his cardiologist. Good reports, but they both agreed he had to lose weight. His next appointment is in 3 months, so Steve asked him what would be a good amount to lose by then. The doctor said 5 pounds. Steve, surprised at the small number said, I’ll do you better than that, how about 20 pounds? So Steve bet him a sushi meal. The doctor took the bet, probably thinking he’s going to get a free sushi meal from Lucky’s Market that just opened a couple blocks from us that Steve and I both rave about.

Of course once Steve makes a bet where he controls the outcome, he’s going to win.

What’s in it for me? Steve spends a lot of money on food. Hopefully our food costs will go down. Plus I won’t be tempted by all the new and interesting stuff he brings home for me to try. I have about a two year backlog on products I tried but didn’t get to posting about yet. Also, when he diets, I diet better.

DISCIPLINE FASTING

Fasting For The Animals

That’s what I’m doing today on the 2nd of August 2018 to help, along with many other concerned individuals, bring awareness to the plight of other animals, whom most humans believe were put on this earth for humans to use, abuse and destroy at will or whim, and that plants are here for some irrelevant purpose. A side dish maybe.

In addition to being happy for an excuse not to cook or eat, many including myself think it advantageous to human health to fast intermittently in order to give the digestive system some resting time while simultaneously cutting back on the total weekly consumption of calories and fat – for weight control purposes.  Most specifically, however, the cutting back on or eliminating the consumption of animals one day a month as part of the fast is the goal. Fasting means eating nothing, which includes plants and animals.

If I do well with this, and I know I will, then I’ll consider adding more days. Hey, if I’m having a hard time losing the fat, then not priming my food pump once a week, instead of once a month might be the answer.

For me, it probably requires less discipline to fast than to eat less when I see everybody eating more.

So, I’m fasting for the animals. That gives me a purpose beyond myself.
However, because I am also an animal, that means I’m fasting for me too.

A win-win.

Take a look here: INTERMITTENT FASTING PREVENTS DEGENERATIVE BRAIN DISEASE?

That’s all I had to read, besides what I already know from my own long ago past of fasting. It really does make a body – mind feel and act better.

DISCIPLINE TIPS & TOOLS

Discipline Leads

We tend to think discipline is doing something we don’t feel much like doing, but we suck it up and do it anyway, because it’s good for us or somebody or something else.

Quite the contrary. True discipline is finding that which we enjoy doing and then doing it. Suffering is not a by-product of discipline nor a requirement.

Discovering our talents and applying them effectively is the effort exercised in the discipline process, that brings us joy not despair, desperation or dread.

Discipline liberates. It does not enslave as one might think.

THE RULES

Nobody likes discipline, but everybody likes the result.

The Anticipated Result is eventually what motivates us to move beyond our limbo state of mind.
