That though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. Emerson
Women who claim to be afraid to train hard because they “always bulk up too much” are often already pretty bulky, or “skinny fat” (thin but weak and deconditioned) and have found another excuse to continue life sitting on their butts.
I hear over and over and OVER again that it’s so expensive to eat healthy. If you’re juicing, hell yes it is. If you are just trying to have a solid, healthy diet, I don’t find it any more expensive than eating out all the time. I mean think about it. If you eat out AT LEAST three times a week, some people I know do more, with an estimated meal being lets say $12 since you chose to go for that coke instead of the water, you are spending approximately $36 on eating food eating out in one week alone. I just bought $23 for 7 days worth of groceries–all healthy food. So let’s crunch numbers: $36 for 3/21 meals you should consume in one week versus $23 for 21 meals. I’m sorry, but I thought you said eating healthy was SOOOOO expensive. What’s your next excuse?
Sorry for my absences this week. it’s midterm exam time again, and i have finals at the end of next month >.> but here’s a quick rundown of my activity the last few days:
Monday was a 5 km, 3 laps (1.5 km, approx) around the trails
Tuesday was a lazy day because my foot was acting up :(
Wednesday I did good… 2.5 laps on the figure 8 circuit (just under 3 km per lap) for 8 km
Thursday I had to work, but I walked both ways again and got some excercise in there :)
I also made some freaking delicious energy bars on wednesday, using seeds and nuts and agave syrup/honey. I have chia seed and mocha, almond and coconut and peanut butter and chocolate… they’re like KIND bars, except I made them at about 1/5 of the cost and more protein/fibre and micronutrients per bar :)
A lot of the times when I’m working out, I need it to be mindless. Working out is my happy time, my Zen, and sometimes I don’t want to use any of my brain muscles during that lovely part of my day.
So this is my Mindless Workout. This is the workout that I do when I don’t really give a shit if I’m working my back or my abs in particular today, I just want to something that’s going to make me sweat.
