Welcome back to another Weekend Open thread, where we look back on the week and all let out a collective sigh of relief that it’s the weekend. Huzzah!
Earlier in the week I had a bit of a rant about attitudes towards weight loss. It was a challenge to get my lard arse back on the treadmill, but I’ve broken the cycle and find myself actually…enjoying it? Madness, I know. Turns out there is something quite therapeutic about throwing on some loud music and pushing yourself to reach new goals. I get so pumped when I reach a new goal! Sites like Fitocracy help with the whole leveling up mentality, but for me, just seeing my distance improve is enough to keep me coming back for more. Getting the ding is a nice bonus though 😛
Think gamers are all fatties like me? Go check out The Fat Panther. He is a long time guild mate and living proof that we are not all jelly bellies. Seriously, the guy ran a freakin’ marathon through mud! Go forth and add it to your bookmarks 🙂
What music do you crank up when you’re
torturing yourself exercising?
