Promises made and promises broken. Which will it be? Which will it be indeed!
We all have wants, we all have needs. I have been on this Journey since June 21, 2010. I have experienced: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.
"YOU DID? DAVE, I THOUGHT IT WAS ALL SO SMOOTH FOR YOU! WHAT HAPPENED?"
What happened ....... well should that be asked what did not happen? Yes, yest it should. I Tell You What: in theory Zero Carb is easy. Very, Very easy. Why? Because you limit your choices to just two (2) things: Fatty Beef and Water. At least when you go "Strict Zero Carb". I did it for a long time. I reintroduced other things as I went along and it was OK. Well most of the time. HA!
For all that are new to Zero Carb I suggest that you should start off with that Strict Stance: Fatty Beef and Water for at least six (6) months before introducing other things. Easier said than done? NO! It is totally up to you. A little motivation? Sure. Why not? Just look at my Before and In Progress pictures. Words are cheap. Action, well my friends are a whole other thing.
My weight loss is just a phase in my life. I have been saying and saying that I want to start an exercise program that includes weight lifting. Heavy lifting? No not really. I just want to life to gain strength I have lost with time and age. I am not as strong as I once was. I have nothing against heavy lifting. It is just not my choice at this time. I want to add a little cardio. In what exact form? I just don't know at this time. Tae Bo is actually very inviting. I would like to reactivate (don't laugh) my trusty old Soloflex. I would like to buy a used Elliptical and maybe a used Treadmill. Of course I want one of those Standing Kick Bags. I have remained for the most part very flexible and want to continue down that road with a very simple regiment of stretching exercise and a simple portable leg stretcher.
So here is Dave's line up for his next adventure:
Portable Leg Stretcher
Standing Kicking Bag
This will be my home gym. I only have the Soloflex at this time. I WANT all the other items. Do I NEED them? I dunno. I do know I WANT them. I don't like public gyms. Never have and never will. Why? Again I dunno. I just don't. I would like to try to find this equipment used. I don't want to pay a fortune for them. So my little gym will be slow coming, but the nucleus is there. Yes, the SOLOFLEX. I have used it in the past and I love it. Do I need all the other equipment? Maybe yes, maybe no.
Hey I am not preaching to anyone. I just want to do this for myself. Others can determine what they want to do. Will Zero Carb work without this stuff. You gotta know what Dave will say: Y-E-S!!!!!!!!
This is just my new adventure. I am an athlete by heart and miss a good workout. I guess it is like the "Runner's High". I guess.
Did I mention that today is the first official day of my two week vacation? Well yesterday I was off because of MLK day. So I don't count that as the start of my vacation. All of my out of town / country guests are now gone. They have went back or to their new prospective homes.
Back to my vacation. I will embark on my next adventure : Dave's Cruise Ship Adventure. Yes you my Friends and Zero Carb Family will have a front seat of this new adventure via this blog through photos and true accounts from yours truly (Oh Brother, Oh Brother Indeed!!) HA! Yeah right.
OK comedy hour closed. Seriously folks. Yes seriously. I want to say Thank You to all that come by and visit. Rather in silence, via email or by making direct comments.
I am a man on a mission for Great Health. Mind, Body and Soul. So I will change this Blog from a Zero Carb Blog to a Health Blog. Eating and Drinking is a need that can't be substituted. So Zero Carb will be at the center, but will not be the only aspect of my never ending search for Great Health. Hey I am no health Guru or Nutty Professor. I am just a man on a mission.
My next update will either be at the end of this month or the first week of February. It will be titled "Dave's Cruise Ship Adventure". I will take tons of pictures of the food I ate among other things.
Have a Healthy (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!
