Default "MOST vs NOW"

Thursday 8.28 Day 1
“Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.” Augusta F. Kantra
Vince Del Monte had an email series-"Small Things, Big Difference" and this was a quote from part 3. It really resonated with me and I frequently go back and reread it.
What I want most: To get off the lose 5 lbs, gain 5 lbs wagon. To practice portion control. To have my cake and eat it to, but not as often.
What do I need to do now to get what I want most: To put into practice the lessons I have learned from the books I have read, especially "Psycho‑Cybernetics" by Maxwell Maltz. In fact, if I put into practice what I have read, I wouldn't have to enter contests. But this human is fallible and needs the support and kick in the a** of this great group of friends.
Had to get this in on the last day, will have more info later. Pics on Saturday.
Together, great things will happen. Concetta

Pyscho-Cybernetics is one of the most inspirational books, no make that the most inspirational book I have ever read. I will read it again soon and start to implement the exercises.

Welcome on board!

I have heard this is a must read from multiple people. Maybe I should add this to my list of goals for this challenge!

And yes, welcome on board, Concetta.

Concetta-Per Shanna(a local bootcamp owner) and Craig's(CTT and creator of turbulence training,you may have heard of him) recommendation, I'm going to work reading this book into my daily plan for the next 12 weeks. It's on order from Amazon!

Monday 9.1 Day 5
Gym closed
stats:
lbs-132
waist-31
hips-37
chest-34
shoulders-17
thighs-20
Looking at the pics again, I don't think the waist measurement could possible be correct. I have a lot of work to do.

Concetta- I think you are being too critical of yourself. Seriously. You look great. Nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel better, but don't beat yourself up! Preaching to myself here! Leslie

Nothing a smile couldn't fix Concetta. Common give us a little smile

If I may make a comment and suggestion.

I think that you are being way too self critical as well. I also think that you need to stop focusing on fat loss and start thinking about putting on some lean mass.

Beside a small amount of belly fat you're very lean and I honestly think the best way to address your transformation would be to focus on adding a bit of meat to your frame. Not only would it sit well on you it would increase your metabolism and potentially end this cycle of fat loss and fat gain.

Just my two cents worth. I think you look great but I think you would look better with a bit of extra muscle. I think the fat will take care of itself so long as your training hard and eating sensibly.
