Gym + Food Network can only lead to disaster

Sometimes I am just chock full of dumb ideas. Here’s one of them:

Yeah. I’m one of those people. I should also mention that I’m a fan of Epic Meal Time. Vegetarian I am not.

  1. I’ve never been good at losing weight. If anything, I just keep getting bigger and bigger, much to my chagrined shock. I never even considered going to a gym until recently, because I found it pretentious. Same with health foods/salads.

    No wonder I’m fat.

    • I don’t think there’s anything pretentious about going to the gym! Rather, it’s admirable to try to stay fit and healthy. Although I agree that there are better ways to stay healthy than trendy health foods. I seriously question the effectiveness of some of them– it seems as though there’s always some new amazing vitamin or mineral or “organic healthy superfood” on the market.

      • I think the problem I always had with gyms is that there are easier ways to stay fit and healthy than spending money at the gym. All those machines I felt were just expensive stand-ins for the real thing. Instead of going on the treadmill, you could go for an actual run, and it wouldn’t cost anything.

        I think that was it. I think I thought the gym was just for suckers.

        • It’s true that there are cheaper ways to exercise. Perhaps what I like about the gym is that it’s accessible in the winter (I did do a winter of running in 20 degree weather, and I would prefer not to repeat it) and it really motivates me to work out. Each to his own, though– I really admire the people who can run outside for miles in any temperature; they’ve got motivation I lack!

  2. This is how I am, except it’s for caffeine and rich food that gives me heart trouble. I’ll be going out for a bike ride and trying to feel better and all of a sudden, that caramel mocha from Starbucks is just tempting me.

  3. That “notlateone” and “littlewonder2” trying to be the best commentors …(grumble, grumble). Annnyyyywhhooo… But seriously (I say that too often), if you really are having a hard time losing weight (I don’t judge, except for myself of course- SHUT UP! See, there I go talking to myself again). But if you are having a hard time losing weight then I recommend Tim Ferriss’s book- The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman. That really is the title. And it is backed by a bunch science stuff (at least I think it is (I’m so gullible)) But seriously, this book is gold! It has things that most people don’t even know exists. I’m not saying go buy it. Just request it from a library near you and get it transfered to yours (it’s free that way), but whether you want to lose weight or not you must (no choice on this one) go read Tim Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Work Week. Your life will change!! Don’t want to wait for some stupid library to get those books (get both of them). Then just go here: http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2007/09/18/real-mind-control-the-21-day-no-complaint-experiment/. This challenge is harder than any workout and better. Read this, do the challenge, read the other blogs of Ferriss’s and live the best life you can!!!
    (Why am I always yelling. It seems to get really annoying- I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO SHUT UP!)

    Live strong,

    • Oooh, I’ve heard of the mind-control challenge before! The Tim Ferriss book looks mad interesting (especially that awesome title). I’ll have to check it out for sure! I definitely have a problem with always being hungry all the time, so a book like that would totally help.

      Thank you for the motivation! 😀 You stay healthy too!
