I just got back from the gym, second Sunday in a row that I have gone.
Now if I can only figure out how to work in some other days into this routine I'll be golden (like a shower?).
Ended up doing 45 minutes on the Elliptical and burned an estimated 500 calories. I'll accept it. I want to be able to do 60 minutes before July is over and I don't think that's too far fetched as long as I don't push myself too hard early so that I'm struggling late.
Also, one of my Facebook Friends shared info about a Golds Gym App today where it has a picture feature where you are supposed to snap a pic of yourself after every workout and watch the progress.
I've decided that this sounds like a great idea but I'll be doing pre-work out photo's instead.
Today being day 1 I shagged 4 photo's, two in my spandex (or whatever it's called) and one in my favorite Hockey Jersey (it's your only hockey jersey ass-hat).
I bought the Jersey in 1996 I do believe, either right before or shortly after High School graduation and have been wearing it ever since. Well, The last bunch of years it has sat in my closet because when I put it on I realize I'm way too fat for it. (it does fit a bit better when wearing the workout spandex though). So, my other two photo's today were in this jersey so that I could track my progress over time until the day that it finally fits me properly again.
So here are my 270 pound fatty pics for Day 1
I don't know why they are sideways, maybe being so heavy has caused even the pic to rotate into a more comfortable, laying down position.
I'll try to keep these to once a week in my summary posts to show any type of progress (or regress) that might occur until I get bored and just eat a whole bag of chips or a gallon of ice cream or whatever.
Hot fattie pics rock!ReplyDelete
I knew this would please the lady followers :)Delete
Keep it up grrouchie... I wanted to chime in with the fact that even though you've been a little disappointed with your weight-loss in recent weeks, you have not gained back a significant amount of the weight that you lost initially... Keep working at it!ReplyDelete
If I don't complain then I'll become complacent and That's when I'll start actually putting it back on.Delete
So this is Why I keep the pressure on myself when I'm just holding even.
Yeah, the plateau weeks suck, but like coach said the important thing is you're not backsliding. Keep it up and you'll start losing again. Following along is helping keep me on track too, so thanks for that.ReplyDelete
I never had the willpower to go to the gym, even with the lure of countless young women in spandex (one of the perks of a college town). By the time I got home and took care of the dog there was just no way I was hauling my lazy antisocial ass back out of the house. But I did eventually get a recumbent stationary bike and manage to ride five or so nights a week while watching tv and dinking around with my phone. FWIW, YMMV, IMHO, ETC, ETC
That's a killer jersey, btw. (The spandex, otoh, makes you look like a particularly sleazy mime pornstar.)
Mime Porn - yes, maybe this is something that I can look into if my lucrative career as a spandex model doesn't pan out.Delete
One of my goals is to save up for an elliptical machine for home - hopefully around the beginning of the year.
If I can get that and use it 3-5 days out of the week then everything else will go so much more smoothly.
As for the "scenery" at the gym - it's a nice thought and for a few moments I've got some great views but because of how much I sweat I generally take my glasses off and then I can kinda sorta make out a nice ass and really hope that it's attached to a chick... so that motivation is gone until I get the Lasic
