FITx50 \ week 26

What do BL and I have in common? Other than an almost 50 year spread, we both love cheesecake. This was his first time tasting it. My sister had the great idea of sharing mine with the tyke.

End result – kid gets new treat and great uncle eats less cheesecake. Win – Win if you’re the one year old.

Kidding of course. This week has been fantastic as I returned to a regular schedule at Momentum Gym – I’ve heard all the crossfit horror stories, but seriously dude – use your head and moderation.

Oh, and most important – Keep your t-shirt on. No one wants to see man-boobs while doing box jumps. Well, not me anyway.

Remember March 11, 2015 is the date. Until then, stick to your goals and like Kim Lane always says: “Nothing tastes as good as good health.”

Happy 2015. It’s been a great week for inching a bit closer to my goals for blasting the 50 year mark.

Momentum Gym has been incredible as always and it’s great to exercise among a community who also share similar goals.

I’ve not had a pinch of cake, ice cream or pizza this week either. Guess what? I’m in no need of a coroner’s hold either!!!

Have an awesomely lived weekend and here’s to getting fit.
Best of success Tami Mills-Merrill & Beth McCall Moore

FITx50 \ week 21

IMG_5950

FITx50 \ week 21 was spent on another adventure out West. While the endless walking involved in what is Las Vegas was exhausting, I’m not sure it counts as exercise. Not when buffets, pizzas, fancy foods and snacks bookend each journey.

Encouraging was the wisdom to avoid the slots, and keeping up a frantic pace. Between solving the CSI exhibit’s mystery and helicoptering / boating / hiking the Grand Canyon, I held up pretty good.

Christmas was also wonderful to return home to. We deep fry our turkeys down South, but it tastes so delicious it has to be good for your health happiness. With that manipulation of the truth, I’ll get back to reality.

I’m not sure anyone at Momentum Crossfit remembers me. Come next week, I’m looking at less than three months till I burst through the half-century banner. It’ll be time to sharpen my focus with much more sensible eating and consistent exercise. I might even throw out a weight loss goal for keeping myself accountable.

I trust your holidays have been awesomely spent,

Scott

FITx50 \ week 19

This is my favorite Christmas picture for several reasons. For purposes of this post, the expressions illustrate the yin and yang of fitness and dieting. Santa’s look is how I feel after I blow my diet.

The sly grinning kiddo is how I feel once I’ve logged in the exercise and managed to avoid the sweets. I also think its funny because the photographer failed to notice the “horned” candles behind Santa’s head.

This week, I can say my FITx50 focus sided with the kiddo’s expression of satisfaction gained through exercise and moderation in diet.

Still moderate temps have allowed for evening jogs, which lead to very light eating at night. Heading into a hectic weekend that includes my city’s Christmas parade, it’ll be a challenge to exercise.

Momentum Gym’s child care services and Saturday’s community workout session will make finding the time much easier. Squeezing into gym time is much better than squeezing into pants.

See you next week,

Scott

You thinking what I’m thinking?

Breakfast? No, but it was delicious yesterday. Delicious but not over indulged. I made it through this holiday by eating great food, with family and friends. Before i got a bit full, guess what? I stopped.

Planning ahead, i also anticipated the desserts, so I made an effort to up the exercise leading up to T-Day. And….I plan on enjoying a great community post-holiday session of crossfit Friday morning.

So what was the lesson this week? Not sure. Just don’t stuff yourself silly perhaps. Getting fit still tastes better than getting full. I trust you all are sticking to your individual plans – Plan is the key here. You gotta do to stick to it.

Happy Holidays,

Scott
