Passing Notes

As I told you before, I joined the gym to get my mind and body focused on self-improvement. It seems like everybody but me at the gym is already in great condition. I guess the rest of us fat people exercise (or not) at home to avoid the embarrassment. Maybe I should start of gym for people who are at least 40 lbs over their ideal weight.

With college basketball finishing off with a great tournament and the NBA playoffs here at the end of the week, this is a basketball junkie’s favorite time of the year.

Caught about ten minutes of Basketball Wives, What Chilli Wants and Brandy & Ray J combined last night. Is this what we have come to? A bunch of groupie chicks who never were or will be anyone’s wife, a woman who is so convinced that Mr. Perfect is out there that she will overlook any guy with real potential for her, and two spoiled brats who without their mother’s foot up their behinds would have not done anything.

Current music in rotation: Fabolous – There Is No Competition 2, Erykah Badu – Return of the Ankh, Sade – Soldier of Love, and DJ Quik – Live at the House of Blues.

I’m going real hard on this get in shape program. Saturday morning I went to a new gym, X3 Sports, over in the Inman Park area. These folks go real hard and that is what I need to prevent me from slacking off. I did a cross-training program called Fast Track that is pretty much one of those cardio boot camps. That shit kicked my ass. The next morning I woke up feeling the effects all over my body. On a mission though so I plan on hitting the gym at least three days per week. Encourage your boy!



I go to the gym quite often, but when I stop going, I can feel the side effects (lact of sleep, motivation, no energy). Keep at it. It produces endorphins, and the results are tangible.

My fav is Cardio Kickboxing!!!

Keep at it. It's hard at first but working out gets easier with time. Especially when you start to see results.

I agree that when you get your energy up and start sleeping better it becomes almost like a drug. Add other things in as well as the gym. Walking or hiking in the park or something else to get the heart rate going. That way you will not get bored with one routine.

Good Luck!

@Diva I think I'm gonna take a kickboxing class on Saturday. I'm sticking with the Fast Track class until I get my cardio together.

@Kay C That's one thing I like about this gym. They offer a bunch of different stuff so I don't have to do the same workout every time.

@MTE That's what I keep telling myself. Thanks!

They can't start a gym like that for us, because it would be overcrowded, and most likely, we wouldn't fit comfortably!

Keep at it though...I go to aerobics and to work out and I first I just felt people looking at my "jiggly parts," but now I just don't care...I'm there for me, not them. I have lost 20 lbs. since November and hopefully will lost 30 more in the next few months.

Hang in there!
