Step Aside Arnold


Ok, so this is me after 4 months at the gym. Kidding. But today on my way home from the gym, I actually considered what it would take to get to get to the place where this lady is (bad hair and outfit aside). What attracts me to the idea of body sculpting is the goal you have to work towards. For so many years I had one big goal in my mind...to get my degree. It drove me to study hard, to put in long hours at work, and to strive for the day that I would walk across the stage in Simpson Chapel (with visions of gold curtains dancing in my head). I feel like the last few years, I haven't really had a huge monster of a goal that I wanted to work towards, and I really would like to find one that I could be passionate about. I know a lot of my friends are starting to freak out as they read this blog...I don't really want to look like this lady...she is quite odd and manly looking...and I don't want to be a crazy fanatic who can't live without steroids. But just maybe I could actually be fit--for once in my life! What do you guys think? Perhaps the kind ladies at BodyFit have put a little something extra in my protein shakes...or maybe they are pumping subliminal messages through the sound system and are beginning to brainwash me. I guess I'll keep thinking on this and see what my trainer thinks when I go in for my next assessment. Am I crazy?

Nope, you are not crazy, know exactly where you are coming from. Where there is no vision, the people parish. Unfortunately we get to a place where we know that we will never be 'great' or famous, and so we give up having any vision for anything! Have long wanted a vision, but have given up many times, because the vision was 'too hard'. Our society does not foster mastery, because last time I tried, I found it was going to take longer than a week.

Dags, I don't think your crazy. If you want to set a goal for yourself, than do it! I think it's good to have something to aim for.

Is that you in the picture Kelly? You look so different! I think I like the old you better, stop working out so much. By the way sorry I didn't get to spend so much time with you when you were up, Maybe I will have to take some time off of work and come see you.

I think you'd be crazy NOT to want to be fit! As I get older, I am thinking more and more about my health. I want to be around to see my grandkids if it's at all up to me, ya know what I mean!

We need to start going to the gym together!!! I think the cheesy 90's pop they pump through their stereo system really is subliminal...work it, work it...cause I keep feeling the NEED to go back (or maybe that's just shlumpiness talking to me...'get off your butt and go work out!')

crazy, crazy for feelin' so lonely, crazy for cryin', crazy for lyin' crazy like a fox! I love you just the way you are. But I will love you just the way you are too. So... in other words. I'm jealous of your drive/intended drive. And maybe you'll inspire me to kick it up a notch. So go for it! Or don't whatever you want :)

Well, I made an appointment with Dominique yesterday, I'll go for my assessment and then she'll do up a new program for me. I'm kind of nervous, but I know I've lost some weight and inches so I'm not sure why I'm worried! Funny how your mind tricks you...

I just hope the next picture you post isn't quite so scary as this female "Arnold" one!! 2 thumbs up ... for a new program!! xoxo

Hey, now that you have had your Body Fat checked....wanna go out for dessert and a movie? This was originally T's idea, although I wish I could take credit for it. I think that she was thinking this Friday.

Well, I don't get my fat checked til the 4th, so a night out is just fine. What Dominique doesn't know won't hurt her...I guess it'll just hurt ME! I'll be sure to get to the gym that day!
