The Gym

I have never been a “gym rat” but my gym-going activity has spiked in the last few months.  I didn’t do sports in high school since I was in Marching Band, so I don’t know my way around a gym room at all.  I’d like to remedy that.

I started a P90X-like workout class this morning, and I plan on doing it for the rest of the winter quarter every Monday/Wednesday.  I started today, and boy was it tough.  We did arms, and I feel like mine are going to fall off!  It’s rough, but I’m looking forward to learning all this stuff.  I may never be a true gym rat, but I’d like to at least reach a stage where I don’t feel like I don’t belong when I walk through the door.


Weigh-In Sunday

Total Change: -34.8 lbs.

Happy Mother’s Day! Make sure to do something special for your mom today.

Still going strong.  I only made it to the gym twice last week, but I think my hard work still showed off.  Yes, I only lost 1.2 lbs. from my weigh-in last Saturday, however that does not tell the whole picture.  After Saturday’s festivities I clocked in at about 297 lbs. Sunday morning, so getting back down to a loss for this week was pretty damn good in my book!  If I work as hard this week maybe I can get to under 290 lbs. before I leave for sunny California for the summer.  I’ll most likely weigh-in super early next Sunday since I will have a long drive down I-5 ahead of me.

Weigh-In Saturday

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 295.8 lbs.
This week:  293.4 lbs.
Change: -2.4 lbs. lbs.
Total Change: -33.6 lbs.

I went to the gym three times this week which seemed to work out well, so I think I’m going to try keeping that up.  I also added the bike to my repertoire.  I’m thinking about picking up biking this summer, but I don’t own a bike and they’re somewhat expensive.  So that depends on if I can find one for the right price.  Either way, I need to work on what my summer routine is going to be see since I’ll be in a different locale with different challenges.

This weekend is going to be tons of fun.  I’m about to head to the spring football game (go Ducks!) which will start a weekend of celebration for some family events.  I’m going to try and keep my indulgences in check, but I guess we’ll see what happens.  Wish me luck!
