Obsession of the Week

It's official. I am obsessed with exercise. I cannot stop thinking about exercising, reading about exercising, or just in general exercising. You would think that with all this amount of obsession I would be as thin as a rail....but so not true.

I have dropped down another dress size, but the weight is not melting off of me. I may go and ask this one chick at the gym who does metobolic testing if she could test me. It then gives you a list of things that are best foods for your metobolism....although the thought of eating broccoli and brussel sprouts are so not appealing.

I have changed my eating habits dramatically however, where I don't consume mass quantites of sugar nor am I eating processed foods. I have been making all my meals, as well as only buying organic food. This has been an expensive transition. No wonder we are such a fat society as all the cheap foods are bad for you.

However, I am determined this year to be super fit. I did go climbing the other week and was quite impressed with my stamina a strength after going to the gym and working out with a trainer. It has so made such a difference.

I purchased a weighted vest the other week too and when I walk the dogs I wear a 10 pound vest. It goes up to 20 pounds, but at the moment walking for about a mile (which on the way back is up hill) with a weighted vest is kinda tiring, so the 20 pounds will come later I am sure.

I realized I used to be this obsessed with exercising 20 years ago. That would make sense why I was an aerobic instructor back then.

And to add to my obsession I am going to L.A. this weekend, and I made sure the hotel I am staying at had a nice gym.....yeah, I even paid extra so there was a nice gym.... I think I am turning psycho....oh yeah, I already am. Thats ok then.
