Now Turn North...

Yesterday a dear friend told me about a verse that has helped her stay focused on losing weight, Deuteronomy 2:3. It reads,

 "You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north..."

What a great analogy! In the battle of weight-loss, it often seems that we go round and round, in a perpetual journey of sameness. The same mistakes made, the same results. But, we have the chance to change the path, to turn North, and see success at the end.  My Northward turn is to be better about exercising. I've done the food changes, with great success in the past, but never really have exercised on a regular basis. I need to and I know it'll make a difference. I'll, of course, continue with my WW tracking as I know it works, but adding in regular exercise will help me get off of my mountain of struggle and straighten my path.

What is your North turn?

Recently I've come to a very simple point: to lose weight you just need to burn more energy than you get with your food. I've started experiencing weight problems because of my work. After 2 years spent in the office, I felt like I am becoming a part of the office furniture myself. I gained weight, my back started to ache, and I suffered strongly from the lack of physical activity. As many of my colleagues, I decided to go to the gym. Because of my tough working schedule, I could visit gym only once or twice a week. At the beginning I was excited and felt much better after training, but during the second month I used to be completely exhausted already after 1 hour in the gym. I could hardly get home. Girls in the gym told me they were taking additional nutrition to support their physical capacities. I have also tried Military Grade supplements they’ve recommended. Though, it was designed for military people, it can be used by anyone, men or women. Moreover, if it is used by soldiers, I believe it should be efficient and safe. So, I’ve tried their special pre-workout formula. I am more energetic during the training itself, second, I have much more energy even after it. And what’s most important, I’ve lost 5 kilos in 1 month!
