So the last few pages got me thinking. Does anyone else here deal with criticism or half serious jokes about working out too much or being obsessed?  I do, I wish people were more supportive about my hobbies and interested than critical. I don't criticize them for playing video games over 10 hours a week or watching tons of TV or whatever they are into. 

 

 

Also, I love Kale salads. You gotta rub the seasonings and dressing into the Kale it kind of absorbe it. 

 

but but but american idol!

 

idc if people do think i'm obsessed.  i'm not doing this for them.

Just guessing here, but once you do stop smoking, you will need to crank up the intensity.
I quit smoking in April 2010. I weighed about 185 at the time. By December I was 260. I should point out that I stopped most of my routines in June 2010 due to all the back problems I was having.. but 75 pounds in 8 months!
I'm down to about 210 now. But still nowhere near the fitness level I was several years ago.

 

IF I quit smoking, I'll be able to crank up the intensity.  Lets be pragmatic here.

 

Plus, if i just stopped working out now and went back to my old lifestyle, i'd shoot up 20 lbs in no time i bet.

treadmills aren't exercise

 

also her lifestyle could be watching honey boo boo and eating potato chips while ordering get thin quick schemes off television.   but its not.  she has a fitness lifestyle if she's working out enough to maintain or show progress.   otherwise she's just wasting her time.

 

fitness isn't just exercising.  its eating right and having the right frame of mind and perception.  it requires self awareness that ordinary motherfugers don't have.

 

Nearly every aspect of this post is wrong, but go ahead believing that what fitness is for you is the same for everyone. This is exactly the attitude that bothers those who don't take it as seriously as others.

anything is better than nothing.  and yeah, after living a sedentary lifestyle the last 15 years, i can tell you for a fact that just working out 1.5 hours over the course of a week and eating healthy for me personally would have been a major lifestyle change at that point.  i would have had to change everything, right down to the way i think.  the very core.  i can see how you might not understand the radical transformation that takes from within, reversing 15 years of bad habits.

 

so keep telling other people their opinions are wrong, i'm sure you're a blast to hang around, and tearing them down when they're a newbie like i am, trying to get their mind right

 

nothing about my post was wrong.   i just didn't wrap it up with a pretty little bow and serve it on a silver platter for you.

This is my point. That's exactly how it is for YOU

 

Not everyone is that way. Congratulations on changing your life for the better. I think that is great and something everyone should do if they want to. But it's not some massive life overhaul and reversing years of bad habits for everyone. For some people, it's just a matter of filling a little bit of extra time by walking to the gym at their apartment complex.

 

Fitness is a lifestyle for me, but not even in the same way it is for you. I didn't have to reverse years of bad habits or anything like that. I just had to get up and do it. I had to mentally prepare myself every day until it became part of me and part of who I am. But I understand that is not the same for everyone.

This thread has gotten off topic, and it's my fault.  I just think it's important that people be supportive of anyone who wants to improve their physical health, no matter how small the change.

 

Anyways- I was able to reach my max on bench this morning.  I was pretty proud of that.  It's a good feeling, even if it does occur in an empty gym at 4:30am.

FWIW, If you eat Kale fresh in a salad if you add some kind of vinegar or vinaigrette dressing it should cut some of that bitterness.  Personally I cook mine down with ham hock and some onions....don't judge me

your entire lifestyle revolves around your health and level of fitness, regardless of age, income, wealth, race.

 

i don't see why you can't admit that.   your level of health and fitness is your lifestyle.  stop going to the gym and see what happens to your quality of life.   same goes for your lady friend.  slack off for just 3 months, either one of you.

 

fitness is a lifestyle.  maybe its just a commitment to being active.  maybe its a commitment to improve.   maybe you want to be the biggest, baddest motherfuger on the planet.  maybe you just want more energy.

 

so yeah, continue to point out that my opinion is wrong and that its my opinion.   i'm pretty sure i knew that before i even typed any of it out.

 

you're the one that has a hard time coming to terms with it being my opinion.  you think i should change it to make you feel better?

 

and i disagree, i don't think the thread has been derailed.

 

this is definitely a deeper and more thorough discussion than set counts or routine changes

 

god forbid someone argue on the internet or have a differing opinion.

 

and yes, my way is the best way.   no matter what you do, give it all you got or get out of the way.   don't just take up space and impede the progress of others that are pushing hard.

 

don't settle for status quo.   don't be afraid to push.

 

why do you find that message so intimidating?

We have very different views of what having a "lifestyle" really entails. So, our disagreement is born from that and the discussion is moot.

I hate running. If it weren't required for my second job, I would never do it. My cardio would come strictly from biking or swimming.

That being said - is it realistic to try to take about 2 minutes off my 2 mile time in 3 weeks?

~bear in mind the amount of motivation I require just to hit the pavement is something out of this universe.

i use the dictionary for definitions.   dunno where you get yours.

 

lifestyle [ˈlaɪfˌstaɪl]

n
1. a set of attitudes, habits, or possessions associated with a particular person or group
2. such attitudes, etc., regarded as fashionable or desirable

 

 

working out is a habit.   going to the gym 3 times a week is a habit and other choices (should i skip gym this week and go to the movies?) revolve around that habit.

 

fitness is a lifestyle.   just like being unfit is a lifestyle.  sometimes things are beyond our control, like with that bald headed guy that posts in this thread, and if what he says is true then he puts all of us to shame

It's certainly possible.  You just have to push yourself pretty hard.  You'd be amazed at what your body can do if you just don't let it give up.
