10-20-16- It is hard but NEVER EVER give up on you. You have it in you.
3/15/15- l N A N T l C l P A T l O N... I seem to find myself at a different place this year in a few aspects. My workouts have been great. I'm still progressing with weightlifting and cardiovascular fitness. Its an undying passion with goals still to attain. Above all, after having no urges to be with a man and almost 6 years without any sexual activity, I'm finally becoming more open to a long term relationship. I'm very proud of that fact, that I was and am still strong enough to not give in to senseless desires until I was ready and that one man comes along. I'm still patiently waiting. I'm still content with being alone. However, I feel he's really close. I strongly feel this is a great progression in my life compared to the person I was, what I'm feeling and I am ready to love someone. I really thought that I was going to be alone for the rest of my life and I would be happy. Guys, isn't love something to look forward to? So many of us remain single. Don't wait another minute. Yield to these meangingless encounters. Don't let time leave you behind.. Ooh, & today's my birthday, #pisces #runner@heart *Appreciate the MOTD votes and support! 4-18-15 My first time since I joined the site in 2009
5.4.14- The Burn. Feel it! It's a victory where you can get past the tiredness and keep on moving...sights on results. What will you do?
11.11.13- Anticipate progress! As of now, after seeking resolution to upgrade the physique I've turned to regular use of a pull up machine. This integration has proved an advantage in my development quite rapidly than any other. Truth is, I'm still a cardio-machine at heart but with heavy use of this multi-use power tower and my other routines, I'm left eager to see my future progression so much that I can't stop.
4/20/12- Motivation has been key for me these days and my lifting routine? I've finally gotten it pat down and I've been pushing myself beyond the threshold, indubitably so!:) The noticeable changes in my body provide further motivation to persevere. I've been lifting twice a day, five times a week. Some days I will lift twice a day, once in the morning and another at night, or, I'll run in the morning and lift later in the evening. One things for sure is that I've toned down my running quite a bit but I still have the passion for it. I had felt the early stages of "runner's knee" a couple of months ago so I eventually forced myself to take a few weeks off from running altogether. It was brought about by my regular path (years) of running downhill on hard terrain and eventually my knee was just not having it. So, I dealt with it early before any further progression. I've also have been taking a cardio kickboxing class which adds to my routine. I'm all legs so I'm putting them to further good use but in a different way. Furthermore, I've never stretched before my cardio workouts in the past and have learned to do so since this class and have even noticed quicker gains in muscle which is obvious but have felt differently about it in my running routines. It can be challenging to stay on track with a new workout routine...I can run routinely, eat healthy everyday but lifting regularly has been quite a task to commit to on a daily basis. I initially wanted to take a year away from most websites. It has been about 5 months away from the Realjock website with intents on focusing on my lifting routine. As we all know social media outlets can be highly consuming, influential and distracting from real life events and priorities. However, now that I've gotten my lifting technique/routine down I know that I won't stop.
Update 1/16/11- So I've returned here after about 5 months offline. This is a good site for workout tips and wasting free time. I've just been busy with my own life, very busy and so, I've had to sacrifice a lot of my workouts for the first time in years. I went from running 6 miles a day to a mile or 2 a day or even a week at times. I need my endurance level heightened to where it previously was. At the gym I would run nonstop on the treadmill for an hour without any heavy breathing and I can feel the stares from the men when I get off, haha, its my sexy walk too xD. Anyhow, I'm back in the game and motivated to the max. I've got to get back on track with the push-up challenge as well. It may seem like a long way to go but I'm always optimistic. I know it doesn't take long to get out of shape and it won't take me long to get back in shape either. I have the final say. Here's hoping 2011 will be a year of major progress for us. Good luck! Don't stop! :)
8/10/10- Participate in the Mighty Push-up Challenge here on RJ & help contribute to the goal of reaching a million if you're looking for a good routine. I've gotten great results by dedicating to routinely doing 200 push-ups per day. One day I challenged myself to do 200 push-ups every hour on the hour. I started at 7am and ended at 8pm. I planned to go further but I ended up beat I'm sure and unexpectedly fell asleep right after 8pm, lol. Guess my body was exhausted. *So far I've contributed 21,393 push-ups of the total 167,940 since April 25, 2010 as of Aug 10, 2010.
12/28/09- I love to workout as I'm sure y'all are the same way. Its a lifestyle for me as I only do it to remain healthy. Now though I'm trying to gain at least 10 lbs. of lean muscle and I'm using protein shakes to assist me in my endeavor. I have to consume more food too which is another huge task. Having to increase my food intake daily is difficult being that I only eat when I get hungry which is usually once a day. I have had a love for cardio for years now. I run 6 miles/day either on the treadmill or outside but I find it much better to run outdoors, I do prefer it, so I hit the pavement. I routinely wake up at 4:30am and go running for a mile before getting ready for work which charges me up for the day ahead and leaves me in a positive mood with the steady release of endorphins. I then run another mile again at 10:30pm before bed. It's a routine I love and have adjusted to and the weather is always nice year-round. I do hit the gym after work as well and run 4 to 6 miles there. It depends, sometimes I run it all at the gym or I may not run at night, usually I still do though. My morning workouts though are absolutely THE best and a must. But yeah, I've got to cut down on the cardio to get my body bulked up a bit to where I want it. I'm not looking to be massive at all, I'm very much happy with my body being tall and thin and would like to maintain my fluid movement. I just want a bit of definition here and there. Above all, I just wanna stay healthy... live and die this way. **With cardio workouts I truly believe it is the best part of any attempt to stay/look young as the years progress. To truly maintain its the only true remedy...T H E A N T l C l P A T l O N...
Guys I'm Looking To Meet
This may have its advantages...and I know you'll say exactly the right thing. I'm the type that's content with being alone, I've always been this way. Exploring my possibility, my options are ultimately left open...expectations are nonexistent. I'm fit, love sex but reserved for the right guy despite your impeccable exterior and other massive parts; it lacks to persuade and even with spontaneity. My stance is that I do have the anticipation for a lot of things when it comes to men so who knows what will give way if we meet. Patience is a virtue. I'm hardly anticipating finding love on RJ as I feel this is a fitness site. Again, I'm usually on RealJock during my free time which is truly a rarity... but for wasting space... this is what I would find attractive in slight specifics; Though some minor physical attributes would be less important of course in the long run. Most importantly, I've adopted fitness as a lifestyle for the long term, health-wise. I love cardiovascular activities as I run 4-6 miles/day, I eat healthy, I hike, venture in outdoor cycling & I lift weights routinely. It is ideal that you are engaged as well. Additionally, every man is unique and I find that I could grow to like a person for who they are, faults and all, so I will not make a list of aspects as I tend to not focus on the negatives. Now for fun and what catches my eye physically... I tend to notice tall, dark-haired men. What's attractive is a guy that speaks his mind intelligently without restriction. Ambition, & fitness- minded are quite advantageous traits.
