We just got back on the wagon of working out. I am trying to follow in John’s footsteps. It’s been almost a full two weeks of working out in a row for me.


EXPERIMENT: “Do our thoughts about our bodies and the food we eat affect our weight?”

This is an interesting little experiment I’m doing from Pam Grout’s book, E-Squared.  This experiment (#7 in the book) is called the “Jenny Craig Principle.” It begs the question,

“Do our thoughts about our bodies and the food we eat affect our weight and overall health?”

Here’s my introduction to the experiment that I’m putting to the test over the next three days. In three days from now I will check back in and report my results.

E-Squared contains 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality. I will be doing more video blogs on some of the other experiments from this book, so stay tuned for those in the near future.


Who’s Going to Win the Mabry’s 60-Day Fitness Challenge, John or Sarah?

It’s safe to say that most people are not at their ideal level of fitness or weight, and we are not exceptions. So we are publicly announcing our specific goals for the next 60-days and hope you will join in with us to meet some of your health and nutrition goals.

Sarah will be using Beachbody’s PiYo DVD series as her daily guide. Given John’s physical limitations with just having had surgery and not being able to wear his prosthetic leg at all during this time frame, he is going to adapt workouts based on how his body feels each day.

Sarah’s Goals:

  • Restore total self-confidence
  • Regain vibrancy she had prior to having her third child just 10-weeks ago
  • Lose the remaining 12-14 lbs of baby weight

John’s Goals:

  • Limit or stop eating unhealthy amounts of sugar at night
  • Lose 5-7 lbs of fat
  • Bench press 205 lbs
  • Have defined 5-pack (that’s right, 5-pack. John had one of his ab muscles removed in a medical procedure in 2001)

If you were going to pick one or two health-related goals to make over the next 60-days, what would they be? If you tell us what they are we’ll help support and encourage you to hit them.  If you don’t let us know what they are we can’t help you. So come on, leave a comment right now for at least one goal you’d like to carry out in term of health, fitness or nutrition in the next two months! Let’s have some fun with this!
