Catch and release 🤡
All the exercises I've been doing here have benefited me, and today is no different. I started this journey because of a journey I had already started. That quest is one of weight loss. I don't want to be a downer right now or cast a dark shadow, but simply put... if I don't lose this weight I'm going to die.
I'm 200 pounds overweight, and I've been dieting and working out quite a bit lately. My first goal of 50lbs of weight loss was set on Father's Day for my birthday September 23, and I know that I'm going to reach it. Actually I believe I may have surpassed it. Based on 4 weeks ago I had lost 33 lbs and had over six weeks to lose 17lbs. When I've been averaging about 4 lbs a week.
What this exercise did for me was show me how to use dynamic tension which still exercises my muscles and at the same time relax them and put me in a good headspace. I'm a believer that all things are mental, all wars no matter what are fought in the mind.
