So, the wife and I started the exercise thing again today. Took a 8.25 mile round trip bike ride into town and back. We'll see if we keep it up this time...

I had a small glass of soda for the first time in a week, and I can honestly say that it was gross. It's weird because I really loved soda, but I couldn't wait for it to be done so I could go back to my water.

I lost almost 5 lbs this week by just quitting soda and making my portions a bit smaller. I'm excited to where this is heading.

Isn't it sorta amazing how quickly your tastebuds adjust?

Would one of those little magic bullets work?

Oh...and good luck!


The reviews say they are fine for juice mixes and light fruits, but not for vegetables/roughage... I am looking for something for hardcore veggies. :)

So- I worked with a trainer for the first time today! We mostly worked on form (which is where I need the most help) but it was not strenuous or anything. I was concerned that I didnt "push" myself enough, but he assured me that beginning on strength training is not about working til Im hurtin, its about just working consistently. Im trying it his way. I feel great so far tonight! :smile:

You may have heard of the upcoming HBO documentary on America and it's weight problem... if you plan on watching it, keep in mind to take what they're saying with a grain of salt. Here's a really great read pointing out the obvious, which is that we've been hearing the same weight loss programs pushed forth while America only gets fatter.

Most of my favorite factoids about obesity are historical ones, and they don’t make it into the new, four-part HBO documentary on the subject, The Weight of the Nation. Absent, for instance, is the fact that the very first childhood-obesity clinic in the United States was founded in the late 1930s at Columbia University by a young German physician, Hilde Bruch. As Bruch later told it, her inspiration was simple: she arrived in New York in 1934 and was “startled” by the number of fat kids she saw—“really fat ones, not only in clinics, but on the streets and subways, and in schools.”

What makes Bruch’s story relevant to the obesity problem today is that this was New York in the worst year of the Great Depression, an era of bread lines and soup kitchens, when 6 in 10 Americans were living in poverty. The conventional wisdom these days—promoted by government, obesity researchers, physicians, and probably your personal trainer as well—is that we get fat because we have too much to eat and not enough reasons to be physically active. But then why were the PC- and Big Mac–-deprived Depression-era kids fat? How can we blame the obesity epidemic on gluttony and sloth if we easily find epidemics of obesity throughout the past century in populations that barely had food to survive and had to work hard to earn it?

These seem like obvious questions to ask, but you won’t get the answers from the anti-obesity establishment, which this month has come together to unfold a major anti-fat effort, including The Weight of the Nation, which begins airing May 14 and “a nationwide community-based outreach campaign.” The project was created by a coalition among HBO and three key public-health institutions: the nonprofit Institute of Medicine, and two federal agencies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. Indeed, it is unprecedented to have the IOM, CDC, and NIH all supporting a single television documentary, says producer John Hoffmann. The idea is to “sound the alarm” and motivate the nation to act.

Read it, it's good

Nice. We have a share in a local CSA and got our first box of the season today. Radishes, asparagus, turnips, scallions, rhubarb and spinach.

I got put on a diet today by my doctor to control my cholesterol, which is abnormally high for a 35 year old for some reason. It's really all the things I should be eating anyway, leaner meats and vegetables ect... Should be fun.

I just purchased Les Mills Pump from a friend who never used it for $40, a steal! So I guess I'll be starting that program next week.

Pump seems to be a bit more focused on what my fitness goals are than the P90X program I previously used. I like the idea of a weight based program, that's not as time consuming, to accompany my aerobic workouts. It seems to be a perfect fit.

So I get my test results back for my high cholesterol, everything came back higher! WTF?! I diet, lose 15 lbs, and it comes back higher? I don't get it. Why the hell am I suffering with trying to figure out what I can and can't eat, eating all the right things, and changing my whole life around just to get slapped in the face. I don't know why I friggin bother. :angry:

I still haven't used this yet because the collars on the weight bar were junk. They wouldn't hold the weights on, which is probably why I got it so cheap. I purchased some $20 collars that should fix the problem. Hopefully I can start Next monday.
