But I Don’t Feel Like Working Out!

Do most people actually feel like exercising? Think about it. Who do you know actually loves to work-out as often as they can? Probably not many because if most people felt that way there wouldn’t be an obesity epidemic.

As I write this, even I’m putting off the inevitable. I have to work-out. I’m a Personal Trainer. Shouldn’t I be counting down the seconds until I get to hurt and sweat to the classic rock channel and my dumbbells? Nope. I have spent the last hour or so lollygagging around the couple of sites I tend to frequent, posting a few status updates and commenting “great pic” here and there while working up the motivation to get moving! I have a holiday party to attend tonight and I can promise you…the food will probably be pretty good. So how can I take my love of fabulous cuisine and my obvious Sunday morning laziness and somehow use this combo to get me up off the sofa and into the work-out room? Well I’ll tell ya….

I’ve been fat and I’ve been fit and I promise you that fit feels better! I just typed a paragraph or so about my own vulnerabilities above to let you know that I relate to your lack of desire to exercise. We aren’t that different from each other. I live in the same fast world with the same fast food and email vs. snail mail and instant gratification benefits as everyone else. The only problem with this is that permanent and healthy weight-loss and weight-management take time, perseverance and yep, hard work.

I know what happens when we put important tasks off. They either never get done or if they eventually do, there is usually a hefty late penalty. It’s no different with our bodies. To develop and keep a fit physique, consistency is the key. To stay consistent, we have to change our minds.

The truth is that the next hour or so WILL go by regardless of what I choose to do within that time. The last hour is over and I chose to sit on the computer. Now even though I really did more productive things other than post silly stuff online, the fact remains that there is still a work-out to be done. I will have calories to burn off for later. I have a metabolism to speed up for the indulgences I will partake in tonight. I can choose to sit here for the rest of the afternoon and not get my strength training session in and I probably still won’t put on any significant weight from tonight’s foods. The reason for this is that while most often I would prefer not to work-out, I do it anyway because I ALWAYS feel a sense of pride, joy and power by the end of that hour of exercise than I would feel by not doing it. I feel AMAZING when I finish an exercise session. Did it happen overnight? NO! I had to make myself continue to experience it for a good long time until I realized the power behind a regular fitness routine. The result is a faster metabolism which burns my calories for me while I do nothing at all. In real estate, they would call this cash flow from a rental property. The investing, rehabs and negotiations are done yet the pay goes on. Brilliant!

Think about where you are right now. Do you have any regrets over the things you didn’t do? Have you noticed any negative circumstances in your life that could have been kept small and insignificant if only you had tackled them sooner? What about any goals you would have accomplished had you acted sooner (or at all)? When you take a moment and honestly think about any of these regrets, are you convinced that if you only had the chance to make a different decision you would have done it and then you would have everything you’ve ever wanted by now? How much would you give to change the outcome of any of the scenarios I just mentioned?

It’s been 2 hours since my last paragraph. In that time, I worked-out AND prepared all the vegetables needed for my few days worth of healthy salads. I’ll be honest here. I absolutely didn’t feel like doing ANY of that. It’s time consuming and labor intensive as far as I’m concerned. Given that thought process, here’s another one which is equally true. I just finished my work-out and prepared my lean and nutrient dense post exercise replenishment not just for today, but for the next several days to come. It was labor intensive, but I FEEL AMAZING! The hard work is done and I’ll reap the benefits of 2 hours worth of work for the next few days! The technical term for this is delayed gratification. Let’s say it together. DELAYED GRATIFICATION. It’s a way of life we don’t experience much of these days and I believe it’s why our bodies suffer from malnutrition and limited physical capabilities.

You see, most of us don’t feel like doing a lot of the things we need to do and I’m no different. The only way to experience the other side of this particular coin is to just do it. Whatever it is. With exercise, the more often you muster up the strength to get it done, the more you’ll understand the rewards. Don’t get me wrong, you still may want to put it off, however, you’ll have a valid sense of what you’re missing out on if you do. You’ll get how powerful it feels to spend that hour or so doing what you’ll feel proud of rather than nothing at all, which you could easily regret much longer than a measly hour, possibly the rest of your life. This way of thinking creates pride and a healthy self-esteem. It also helps to abolish any feelings of restriction since when we take care of ourselves the majority of the time, we can enjoy our indulgences without guilt.

Well, now that I’ve done the hard work, I’m gonna relax. As I had mentioned earlier, it’s Sunday. The only day of the week that I don’t have to be something to someone. The day that’s reserved all for me. Rather than spending all of it vegging, I gave myself the best gift I could….peace of mind from good work well done. I took that hour, doubled it and now I feel free!

So what about you? What did you get from this?

Wishing you a lifetime of smart choices and self-pride!

Choosing Ringbearer Gifts Does Not Have to Be A Bear

The significance of wedding rings is best illustrated in people's fear of losing them. There are people who boast of having never removed their wedding ring since their wedding day, though this is sometimes due to changes to their weight since they said, "I do." But really, how important are wedding rings? Moreover, how many times have we heard of what a nightmare it is to lose your ring? We hear stories of people losing their rings in the labyrinth of pipes underneath the kitchen sink. Then, there was the movie "American Wedding," in which wacky Steve Stiffler accidentally feeds the bride's wedding ring to a dog. Clearly, wedding rings are very important. Consequently, even though the ringbearer is one of the shortest members of the bridal party, his is the task of the tallest order. So, when you choose ringbearer gifts, keep in mind the critical role that your ringbearer plays.

The Ringbearer
The use of ringbearers is fairly modern. They tend to be young brothers or nephews of the bride or groom, and usually range in age from 5 to 10. In weddings that are formal, the ringbearer, or pageboy, has one of two different functions. First, the ringbearer might carry the bridal party's rings on a huge white satin pillow. Boys will be boys, and almost anything could happen during his waddle down the aisle. Usually, the best man himself secures the rings, or thread is used to attach the rings onto the ringbearer's pillow.

Another function of the ringbearer is to carry the bride's train, if it is lengthy.

The Basics
Whether the ringbearer totes the rings or holds the train, make him feel special through your choice of ringbearer gifts. For example, consider what your ringbearer likes. Here are some ringbearer gifts that might ring well with him.

Ring Bearer Fun Box Gift: This is decorated to look like a Ringbearer's tuxedo. Inside it is fun games, cookies, and candies.

Ringbearer Baseball Cap: This will remind the boy that he was in the starting lineup of the wedding ceremony.

Space Magic Cookie Pot: This is a bouquet that is packed with cookies and candies. What kid says no to sweets?

Ringbearer Activity Tote Bag: This is a fabric bag with several gift items inside.

Personalized Gifts
Aside from the obvious height difference, kids and adults are not too different from each other. Like adults, kids want to feel special, too. Personalized ringbearer gifts help you do just that. Here are a few personalized ringbearer gifts to consider.

Personalized Baseball: This will make any little leaguer feel like a big leaguer. The ball is mounted on a walnut-finish stand.

Ringbearer T-shirt: This will let your mini lord of the rings remember the special day. How could he not with his name is printed on the shirt?

Personalized Silver Plated Yo-Yo: Give a new twist to the old toy! Each time your ringbearer uses this ringbearer gift, he will remember his walk down the aisle.

Being the ringbearer in a wedding can be daunting for any youngster. Help your ringbearer enjoy the task by giving him a well-thought out ringbearer gift. Carefully chosen ringbearer gifts will make your wedding day one that will always ring a bell in your little ringbearer's mind.

Clothes Dryer

There are two types of clothes dryers one is gas the other is electric. The gas dryer is half gas and half electric, the gas is used for lighting a flame to create the heat to dry the clothes, the electric is used to operate the motor, timer, ignitor, coil kit and thermostats.

The gas dryer has more working parts than the electric dryer, when there are more working parts there is a greater chance of something breaking, the gas dryer does break down more frequently than the electric dryer.

The electric dryer use 220 volts to operate the heater element only, all the other parts use 110volts. Both gas and electric dryer have some basic parts: motor, timer, belt, thermostats, and thermal fuse.

These are the functions of each part.

The motor turns the belt that is on the basket, the timer sends the desired voltage to each part for the desired time that it is set on, the thermostat maintains the desired temperature and the thermal fuse shuts down the dryer if the thermostat fails.

A common problem with both gas and electric is clothes taking a very long time to dry, lint building up in the exhaust vent hose is sometimes the reason. The best way to check if the exhaust is partially blocked is to turn on the dryer. Then go outside to where the vent is, put your hand close to the vent, if there is little or no hot air coming out out, your vent hose is blocked. There should be a strong flow of hot air coming out. Sometimes birds build their nest at the vent opening because of the warm air they find coming out of it. Also if the vent comes out near the ground it sometimes get covered by snow.
