Just a quick post today. I’m working on a bigger one, which will be my last one for a while, but I’ll get to that in a bit. Reminder: If you participated in the May challenge, you’ve got until Tuesday to post your results to the forum. If you can’t remember how to get there, please send me a quick email and I’ll help you out. Next Wednesday (the 6th) I’ll announce the winner!
What can the first Asian-American, Harvard graduate, NBA player, and instant sports sensation teach us about becoming fit?
Before Jeremy Lin came on the scene as an NBA starter, the Knicks were 8-15. He’s helped them very quickly get to .500. Since he came off the bench, they’re 8 and 2 (at least as of this post)! His 136 points in his first five NBA starts are the most by any player in league history! This kid’s rocking, and everyone’s talking about him.
I like his story, and I think he’s got a few important things to share with those of us struggling to become fit.
It wasn’t the best month, and it wasn’t the worst. I have to admit something to you. When I publish a post here that is all motivating and has tips and tricks to avoid certain situations, it’s usually because I just passed through a situation and took some time to think about how I can get over it next time. My posts are almost always for me, and I just post them in case you need to read something like that as well. The reason I’m saying that is because even though I posted about having a great holiday season in terms of fat loss, mine has been mediocre at best. As much as I want to avoid the sweets of the season, I’m finding it pretty hard.
Most of us probably made it to Halloween feeling pretty good about ourselves. Many persevered well. Others made it past Halloween night unscathed, but the next day at work faced an abundance of unclaimed candy. Some remained victorious while others crumbled at the sheer volume of Reece’s cups (*guilty*).
Now the cookies, pies, and fudge are beginning to roll in. It’s getting harder and harder to behave! You might be inclined to tell yourself one small cheat once in a while won’t make a big difference. Maybe you’re fortunate enough to be right.
Or maybe you’re totally sabotaging any chances of success this season.
I don’t subscribe to watching TV in any regular way, probably because I don’t usually have a regular set schedule. Sometimes though, like tonight I give in and get pulled in to something random, sometimes I’ll fall victim to the call of the mass distributed frequency.
