The Weight Loss Pictures

little camera iconAs i mentioned before i want to have picture updates. I would have liked to start this the DAY i started this blog but i couldn’t find the battery to my digital camera. Well i found it burried under some boxes in my car’s trunk so i SHOULD have a starting pic up today with my current body weight, body fat % and front/side profile pics.

I am also trying to get this graphing plugin for wordpress setup so i can kind of chart the weight progress along but that may be a little too detailed. lol

Journaling Food & Diet

Journaling food iconOne thing that I find really hard about Weight Watchers is that you have to journal your food and what you eat. Many times my girlfriend who is a former Weight Watcher employee has mentioned that journaling is extremely important… EVEN if you are slacking off it is still important to log what you eat.

My personal opinion on the journaling is that it sucks. I hate writing lol. BUT i think that by journaling it keeps you structured and even if you pig out and eat 30 doughnuts in one day the structure part pulls you back the NEXT day and gets you back on track. I think sometimes people will binge or screw up one day, then the next day Continue reading Journaling Food & Diet

Found a Workout

workout iconAfter searching around the net for workouts, I think I found on that will suit me nicely. As I mentioned in my makeshift weight loss plan, I was going to try and find a workout routine that I can fit around my work/life schedule. This plan works out nicely because it is only 3 days a week. I already do Tae Kwon Do one day out of the week so I figure about 4 days a week of working out should do the trick. This entry contains the specs of the workout routine… Continue reading Found a Workout

Yoga to Start Things

Yoga originated in India thousands of years ago with classical techniques dating back more than 5,000 years. It is a science that systematically creates harmony of the entire body, mind and spirit. “Yoga” comes from the Sanskrit verb yuj, thus meaning to yoke or to unite. The practice of yoga brings union between one’s consciousness and the universal consciousness. Yoga combines physical movements with breathing and meditation techniques to bring forward physiological and psychological Health Benefits. Yoga provides improved health and longevity, as well as creates a heightened level of self-understanding and awareness.

The yoga poses were designed to revitalize and bring balance to the musculoskeletal and glandular systems. The breathing techniques (pranayama) are based on the concept that breath is the source of life and energy (prana) in the body. The integration of yoga poses and breathing techniques helps one attain a steady, quiet mind and a strong, open body. The yoga poses and breathing techniques are also vital for preparing the body and mind for periods of meditation. The combination of yoga poses, breathing, and meditation makes one more readily able to free oneself from daily pressures and stresses. Yoga is a life-long practice that focuses not on goals and achievements, but rather on experiencing a journey towards inner peace and freedom.

I feel this line holds great value:
