Click here to view the embedded video.

Hey guys, here’s week 8. Another not so good week, but I have been getting some bodyweight workouts in. I feel like this week is kind of chaotic, but I know I’ll be fine once I get back to my regular routine of things.

This is a long journey and I won’t be letting this week tear down the progress I’ve made thus far. Be strong!

Thanks for watching!

Weight Loss Video Diary – Week 8: Chaos

As 5 regras da Força Mental, por Matt “Kroc” Kroczalesk

Para além da capacidade física, do treino e do empenho a força mental é um dos factores críticos do sucesso do praticante desportivo.

É uma ferramenta indispensável para atingir objectivos, para combater o stress, a rotina e a desmotivação. É também parte integrante do treino desportivo de sucesso e na mesma medida é alvo de aprendizagem e desenvolvimento.

Assim o autor Matt “Kroc” Kroczalesk apresenta as suas 5 regras da Força Mental, que são :

  1. Confiança
  2. Capacidade de ultrapassar adversidades
  3. Capacidade de tolerar e superar a dor
  4. Espírito de Sacrifício
  5. Capacidade de ultrapassar o medo

Eu adiciono uma 6ª regra, muito importante para quem quer manter uma cultura de pensamento positivo :

  • Sorrir!

    Hey guys, here’s week 7. It wasn’t a great week. I feel like a failure for not working out as much as I normally do and for eating more snacks than I normally do. But I can’t do anything about that. All I can do is move on and not let it erode my progress.

    Thanks for watching!

    Weight Loss Video Diary – Week 7: So-So

    Peace of Mind

    “Peace of Mind means a healthy body…” Proverbs 14:30

    peaceofmindThis passage of the Bible stood out to me today as I studied. Before the science of psychology was a thought, the Bible spoke about how our mind affects our body. If you look at all the studies done you will find how the mind and body affect each other. Doctor’s say that physical exercise releases something called endorphins which act as neurotransmitters through the body increasing energy and giving us a “Natural High”. These endorphins are also known to increase happiness. According to studies at Duke University 60% of a group they studied with depression, whom exercised 30 minutes 3 times a week, overcame their depression without any medication.

    On the flip side of that. I know in my experience when I am down in the dumps I don’t feel like exercising. I don’t want to get out and go anywhere. I just want to wallow in my pain. Depression isn’t the only problem either, there are issues with anxiety, emotional blockage and yes even spiritual issues that can hinder our lives from moving forward. All of these issues with the mind affect us physically. Anxiety and depression make our bodies sick, weak and susceptible to disease by weakening our immune system. Spiritual issues left unchecked can cause emotional grief and lead to anxieties.

    When our minds are at peace, when we are happier we are healthier. Our immune system gets a boost when we are happy and anxiety free. Understanding how this works, if exercise can increase mental health and peace of mind why do we debate the issue? Exercise not only improves physical health but mental health. Let us break out of the deception of not doing what we don’t feel like but do what we know helps us.

    Why Minding Your Own Business is Healthy

    blackeyepunchA study must show that minding your own business is good for your health.

    I don’t know if there is scientific evidence to back up this theory of mine, but I’m sure at one point there was a study conducted about this. There are studies done about everything.

    Through an unrelated series of events, it has become clear that minding your own business is a healthy habit. I have great personal evidence to back this up. Here goes.

    Minding your own business reduces stress in your life. If you spend time meddling in other peoples’ affairs you are bound to hear bits of information that will add stress to your body. You may find out that a colleague of yours, whom you happen to adore, is getting fired. You might be gossiping about someone and they overhear what you have to say. You could think you know what’s going on in a situation but actually have no clue about what is really happening. All of these situations lead to added stress.

    Stress is a killer. It raises blood pressure and causes an array of health issues from heart attacks to strokes. This is scientifically proven. Google it.

    Another reason why minding your own business is good for your health is that it keeps you focused on your job. If you are so busy wondering what everyone is doing and trying to gossip and meddle in others’ affairs, you are bound to be slacking at work. This could lead to you getting fired which could lead to eating off the dollar menu at McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not a healthy lifestyle. Did you ever see Super Size Me?

    If you are a gossiper, like to antagonize people, or find yourself always in the middle of confrontations, then you probably don’t have very many friends. Generally, people don’t like people who are mean and nasty. And the friends you do have are probably not your true friends. Having meaningful and lasting friendships is very important to your health. Friends usually spend a lot of their time laughing, which lowers stress and actually has been proven to help you live longer.

    Probably the most obvious reason for why minding your own business is good for your health is that it will keep you from getting punched in the face. I’m not one to pry into the lives of my fellow people, so I can’t speak from personal experience. But I have witnessed first hand many brutal fights in which someone got punched in the nose, eye, groin and even kidney for running their mouth and talking smack. Now, some people don’t hit very hard. It’s just not part of their DNA. But, I know there are plenty of people out there who can pack a Mike-Tyson-sized-wallop on whatever area of the body they choose.

    Getting punched is no fun. So mind your own business, do your job, don’t eat McDonalds three times a day and be sure to drink lots of water. You’ll be way ahead of the rest of the world!
