Trying To Get In Shape?

Here’s a hint for those trying to get in shape: five extra pounds can make all the difference!

Lately I’ve been exercising on a regular basis (as a part of my list of summer activities). But my workout changed completely when I finally shelled out some cash to invest in 15 pound weights. After a certain amount of time, lifting the 10 pound weights in certain angles became more like lifting two tv remotes. But 15? Everything changed; I was sore for the next three days the first time I tried it.

Now I know some of you readers may be like, “15 pound weights!? Pfft, I lift that with my thumb toe.” But keep in mind that I’m a poster boy for fast metabolism, I work (a.k.a., deteriorate) behind a desk for a living, and my exercise prior to Tony Horton’s Power 90 regimen was to do pushups, lunges, and jumping jacks to the 3 verses of Lecrae’s 40 Deep. This exercise regimen is good for all body types though; my mom does it too. You can trust Tony, he’s been instructing fitness since before I was born.

Your health is an investment! A worthy one. Don’t be afraid to come up with a way to get in tip-top shape! Your present or future significant other will appreciate it.

And by the way, P90x2 debuts Fall 2011… I’m anticipating that almost as much as I did Spiderman 3 in 2007.

Ever had the feeling that a decision or phase in your life was just meant to be? Nyack College, although not my first college choice, fits this description perfectly; in hindsight, coming to this school is just one of the many “best-decision-of-my-life” outcomes I can’t take credit for. I’ve been afforded the chance to take my academics to new levels with the leadership and inspiration from certain professors, network with fellow Christians learning and participating in the field of business,help found and maintain a club, and now, blog to my fellow Nyack College students! I plan to bring quality, thought-provoking articles to the table while having a lot of fun.

My experiences have left me convinced that without God, my life would be nothing but either a nice collection of mantras and fine-tuned ideologies or a sad statistic. With this in mind, I involve my Creator in every aspect of my life—including this blog. Happy reading!
