It’s All About Resistance Training

Resistance training is using weight and pressure to make your muscles work thus building them and burning calories which equals fat in my body. I used a lot of resistance exercise in my rehab for my hips. I also got to use the big wall ones where you use suspension straps to support your body as it works itself. I actually own three different strengths of resistance bands. I also learned what happens when you’ve got one stretched to the max and that little nick in the middle separates and  “SNAP” smacked in the face by the biggest elastic band you’ve ever seen!

I’m trying to train some resistance into myself. I need to resist the crave morsels and monsters. I need to resist the “yes” response in many, many instances. I need to learn to say no to that last slice of pizza for breakfast. I do have some resistance but it’s to things like exercise and accountability for what I’m craving/eating. So, I have to “exercise” my ability to resist. If the mental process works the same way as the physical process, the more I try the better I get. Right? Do I put the Dutch Bakery box (not empty) on the counter and resist it overnight? I can do that but (and there’s always a “but” isn’t there) only after I’ve eaten the hazelnut tart. For now!

Maybe I can resist. They did it in Star Trek. They resisted the BORG. Let’s see, what is the BORG? Bingeing, Overeating, Repeatedly Gorging? I can and will build my resistance. But maybe keep the guilt. I don’t think I can resist guilt.

Thanks for listening. ;D Diane
