Insanity Day 23 – Round 2

Insanity Workout: Cardio Power and Resistance

It has definitely been one of those days for me.  I finally caught up on a few things during the day and I worked out before work.  It was good getting it done while it was still early.  I worked out to Cardio Power and Resistance and my workout went well.  At times I did feel sluggish but I worked through it.  It wasn’t a humid day or anything and I was able to work up a great sweat.

My day was going alright up until work.  I won’t go into details however I’ll just say that tonight was probably one of the most frustrating times at work I have ever had.  I hate to admit it but I took my frustrations out by eating an unhealthy meal after work.  I am an emotional eater for sure.  I felt very bad for eating it once I was done and I still feel bad up until now.  After all of the crap I have been eating lately I probably would have lost more weight than I have already.  Now because of this, I am going to drink Shakeology in all of my main meals tomorrow with snacks in between.  I won’t follow the cleanse.  It will be pretty close to it though.

My self-control needs to be a lot better when it comes to food.  I have been saying it over and over again but the meals I have been eating needs to stop.  As much as I get stressed or frustrated, I can’t take it out by eating bad food.  I have a couple things to work on so I need to stay on track.  I’ve worked too hard for where I am at with my journey and I am a quarter of a way to my goal.  I can’t stop now.  I will never give up.

Arthur Boorman’s Inspirational Transformation

I came across this amazing video last night and I want to share this with others.  This is an incredible and an inspirational story.  Stories like these help me stay motivated and get me more pumped up. I’m going to achieve my own amazing transformation very soon.  Nothing is impossible as long as you keep believing in yourself. You can accomplish anything.  Never give up!

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try — he couldn’t do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.

Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey – he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.

Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP’s specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility — which gave him hope that maybe someday, he’d be able to walk again.

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.

Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be.  Anything is Possible!
