Blubber Reduction Therapy - Lake Meditation

Written on Thursday, August 21, 2008 by Deeze

I've been slacking a bit doing my cardio. I'm still going to the gym, but out of my 2 hours 1 3/4 of the time is spent lifting weights. The good news is that I can definitely see a difference in my arms, but the problem is I'm not getting a balanced workout. I'm feeling a bit pudgy around the mid-section so I need to get back on board.

Yesterday, I limited myself to lifting weights to an hour although, I was kind of anxious to do more. Afterward, I drove up to the 31st beach and decided to run to McCormic Place and back. It wasn't a long run, but about 20 minutes each way.

I couldn't resist stopping on the way and sitting on the water for about a 1/2 hour. I sat down, turned off my headphones, and just looked at the water while I relaxed for about 20 minutes. While sitting there, I started hearing the "tiny, small voice" which was a lot louder yesterday. I felt like God was downloading a scores of instructions to my brain. Although I pray at home, yesterday while sitting on the water, felt like the first clear conversation (although I didn't do hardly any talking) He and I had in a while. Long story short, I feel like I've gotten a bit back on track now.

I did my 20 minutes back and I ran into one of my best friends riding his bike. We talked for a minute and then I return to my car. Lo and behold I have a ticket for tinted windows. Of course, I'm NOT going to pay it because I've had tinted windows on each car I've owned since 1992 CPD can kiss it! City of Chicago...... good luck trying to get that $25.00 out of me.... I digress.......

I looking to change up my workouts. I'm registering for Yoga on Mondays, and Kickboxing on Saturdays. At my gym, these classes are offered, but Yoga has nothing but women in there, and kickboxing is just about all women, and it's too slow for me. There's a place a few blocks from my place that has these classes, and I'm going to give them a try starting next week. I'm actually excited. The kickboxing is a contact class and instructed by a martial arts champion. I can't wait! My doctor told me last year that I need to work on my flexibility, but I never did. I feel like I need to now because I think my limited flexibility is preventing me from being in the best shape I can.

By incorporating kickboxing, yoga, outdoor running, and some extra crunches into my weight lifting, it will help my "Blubber Reduction Therapy." Fortunately my blubber consists of only 2inches around my waist that I should be able to get rid of in about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks of my new regimen. I think I'll do bootcamp and some other activity in about 2 months when it's time to change up my workout.
