07-03-2007, 10:35 PM
from the time i was 13..up until age 18 i was seriously into weightlifting/working out. i could bike 15 miles a day, then go to the gym and lift weights like it was nothing.
since then........ive dealt with anorexia, alcoholism (not exaclty over and done with..but im at the point where im functioning) etc...
and ive grown rather lazy....aside from the occasional bike trip to the grocery store...or whenever my boyfriend drags me along on long hikes/swims.
what im looking for here is some nagging. for real. im a lazy ass...and i feel the need to get back to where i used to be in terms of fitness...minus the mental derangement.
any suggestions...lectures..etc...are appreciated...

shaquille o'neil's reality show! I just watched it, and even though they're not raw, the kids are really charismatic and it's quite inspiring. He's also posted an easy-peasy daily workout on the show's website.

"Faith is essential to success. A lack of faith is essential to failure. Every belief we hold requires faith because we can never know anything for sure. Without faith, confusion, distraction and inner uncertainty set in - leading only to failure...
If you are doing the work you were meant to do, then you can command that everything you require, whether known or unknown, will be there at the precise time you require it. What stops this process from occurring is doubt. What starts this process occurring is faith. Basically, all you need are two things: a goal and faith, and you will get where you are going.
The opposite of faith is fear and doubt. Doubt stops the full expression of your life potential.
The doubter can and shall never obtain anything. Strong faith creates a positive attitude. Success seems to be connected with attitude. If your attitude is strong, powerful, attractive and graceful, you can achieve any success you desire!
What the people need more than anything is faith: faith in themselves, faith in their fellows, faith in the power and goodness of Nature, faith in the healing powers of raw plant foods, faith in the divine powers.
Those who desire health must have faith, for those who have faith have everything."

"Why raw? Not because it guarantees me optimal health like 80 million other species. Not because it's the last word in nutrition. Not for saving time or money, not for the endless energy it provides me, and not because instead of discarding trash, I discard seeds. No, not for any of those reasons. So, why raw? Taste and pleasure and only taste and pleasure."
-- David Wolfe
