Do something you have never done – Unique Training.

Unique Training

I have been meaning to write this post since Sunday. But I never took the time to do it – until I read Janethas post on http://mealsandmovesblog.com/2013/03/25/mind-over-matter/ Her post kicked my butt into gear, and I finally took the time to blog. So let me quickly say “Thanks for inspiring me, Janetha!”

Janetha posted a quote that just about sums up the essence of my post:
When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you have never done.

On Sunday, I took a huge step. A step that would have been necessary a long time ago. A step that might seem like nothing much to most people, or even more, like a failure. But for me, this step means only one thing: freedom.

I sold my elliptical trainer.

You have every right to ask: “Why does she make such a fuss about that? Most people would be embarassed if the sold their elliptical.”
But I didn’t sell my elliptical because I never use it. I sold it because for years and years, I let my life be ruled by my elliptical. It all started innocently enough with near-daily 30-minute sessions. When I hit a plateau, I extended my sessions to 40 minutes a day. Then 60. Then 80. Then 90. Then 120. No, I am not joking or lying – for about 1 year, I spent 120 minutes on my elliptical nearly every single day.

Last June, I read “Body For Life” by Bill Phillipps, which led me in the right direction. I realized that endless cardio would not get me anywhere near my goal of getting fit and lean. Therefore, I reduced my cardio training to 20 minutes of daily HIIT-training. But it took only a few months until I increased the duration to 22 minutes. Then 25. Then 30. The vicious cycle started once again. And once again, I didn’t have the power to fight it.

A month ago, I finally realized that I need professional help to reach my fitness goals and I hired a PT. She told me to lay off the daily HIITs, to stop doing cardio and focussing on pumping iron only. I was scared. Even terrified. But I did as I was told and limited my HIITs to once a week.
And guess what? I can already see some results. And most importantly, I can feel a change. … Read the rest
