End of October and Weight Loss Competition Results

45272191_345337409362994_3013872697286328320_n

Starting weight: 220 on 8/1. Ending weight: 198 on 10/31. 22 pounds in 3 months!

The only bad news is I was not in the top 3 for the competition. I was number 6. Which I am not mad about. I didn’t get any money though which would have been nice. I also didn’t have a ton of weight to lose so I pretty much figured I wouldn’t win, but the possibility showed itself so I decided to try for it anyway. I am going to keep going after this because these are only the beginning of what I would like to accomplish. I am really liking the way my body is shaping up and excited to see what I can accomplish.

I have been working a crazy schedule lately and it is finally starting to slow down after this week. I will have more time during the day to get my workouts in and be able to continue where I want to go. I may lose a few more pounds then work on the bodybuilding idea I had. I haven’t started that because I have 2 jobs now and with Halloween and stuff, I had no time. Thanksgiving and Christmas aren’t super huge in our house so I can finally focus on what I need to do. I also have a burlesque show this week that I was getting ready for. After that show, I will have my mornings open for what I want to get done in the gym again.

I am getting to the point of having to do a new workout program again so I need ideas! Let me know if you have any favorite programs! If you have good bodybuilding programs, that would be awesome too!

Thanks for being with me on this wild and crazy journey!

Problems with Getting Older

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-bc45p-9e40d3

The effects of age are a pain in the butt. Angela and Erik discuss the issues with getting older, and the problems with young people. Erik dislikes answering questions for some reason. 

You Illiterate Trash Heap

A while back I over heard a girl of about seventeen talking to her friends. She was telling them that she doesn’t read books. Not in a shameful “I’m illiterate” way, but a cocky I am too good for books way.

This set my mind cogs to grinding. It was upsetting. It was the dawning horror that this prideful idiot strutted around as if the ability to not do something was and accomplishment. Feeling the sudden violent urge to jiggle the light bulb supposedly attached to her “brain” I began speaking.

You know reading is something important? It is a gift. Slaves weren’t allowed to read…. or write…. That was so slave masters could keep them slaves. Actual books have been written about how losing the ability to read by an entire society could destroy everything we have. I mean even a magazine article is a start.

When I saw the look on her face it made my hope for humanity weep. She looked at me as if I had just told her I was a priest who liked touching kids & vaping. She actually made a scoffing sound! I literally heard scoff! that was kinda of neat, but just not in this situation. This girl might one day be in charge at the retirement home I decline in.

Remember when you were a child and everyone made a big deal out of “You can be whatever you want to be!” speech? Apparently, this girl was absent that day due to a Bachelor marathon. She strutted away, as I struggled to find enough will to continue living.

All in all, it wasn’t disturbing in and of itself.

Well, then a day later, another late teen was within my hearing range as she read out loud, “My conduct is..” off of a bracelet. She laughed, and told her friends it was funny. Two seconds later she says unashamed, “What does conduct mean?” It was then that I prayed God was swift and merciful with my death. I was too dumbstruck to even say a word. Luckily, I know understand the meaning behind the word dumbstruck.

The news media calls this era the Information Age! Yet, the more information available the more idiots sprout from the womb of ignorance. This is the world my child will inherit one day. All the current population seems concerned about is whether the environment is okay. I say if we are becoming nothing more than willing  pack animals of existence who gives a shit about going green! So we can look forward to a pollution free AND an intellect free planet??

I plan to continue on my path of going against the green. I use any products that cause or increase my carbon footprint. Use pesticides & Frankenstein foods. Why not? If the whole world is going to hell in a hand basket, and yet still cannot spell either hand or basket!! Why not let it die a fancy apocalyptic death?

Instead of making school children computer literate & environmentally conscious  make them aware of how to crack a fucking book & learn. Using deductive reasoning (which they learned from reading it would naturally happen anyway.

Fahrenheit 451 …read it!

Or burn it, I don’t even fucking know anymore.

How Exercise Improves Your Sexual Health

800px_COLOURBOX6870487

Of all the many benefits that exercise can give you, an improved sex life is my most favorite!

When I started exercising, I started feeling really good about myself. Exercise makes you feel better physically as well as mentally. When you feel better in both of those ways, you tend to be more confident. Confidence helps others feel more attracted to you. When you feel better about yourself, you are more likely to want to jump into bed with your partner. 

Exercise also improves mental health. When you have improved mental health, you are significantly less stressed. When you’re stressed out, you tend to avoid sexual contact, or the sexual contact isn’t as pleasurable. You can’t get turned on when you have a million stressors going on in your brain. Also mental illness medications can cause side effects which can decrease sex drive. 

Exercise increases blood flow, which improves many physiological factors. It can lower erectile dysfunction in men. Older males who are more active are less likely to have erectile dysfunction issues. Exercising can actually improve erectile dysfunction. Improved circulation in women can lead to better and more frequent orgasms. 

Doing yoga and strength conditioning can improve flexibility and stamina. That leads to better sex positions and longer sessions! Yoga has been known to improve the sex life in many ways. It helps the body be able to be more flexible which will mean that you can try a Kama Sutra book out! It also improves your mind and how to listen to your body. By listening to your body, you can get a better idea of what you like and dislike. 

Exercising as you age keeps you more sexually active as you age. Because of all the above factors, you will be more likely to have more sex. Men who start getting more physically active have said that they are having more sex. Exercise increases the libido as you age. I know that when I start working out a lot, I get horny more often. Especially after strength training. I am not sure what it is about it, but I really want to hop into bed afterwards. 

With all this, how would you not want to start being more active? 

Exercise releases endorphins, endorphins make you happy and happy people want to have sex!!
