In the last 11 days I have lost another 4.5 pounds.
On August 1st, I decided a change needed to be made and I set out to make myself half the person I used to be. So far I have lost 13 pounds altogether. Inches are coming off, too.
Of course the weight-loss is great and I definately plan to continue, but that is just a minor part of the benefit of exercising. The other day I backed my car out of the driveway and saw all the garbage cans lining the road. Trash day. I’d forgotten.
I stopped the car right there at the curb, hopped out, sprinted up the driveway and took the steps in a single bound —took the steps in single bound –. Those would be the same steps that somedays after work seemed much too steep to climb.
Speaking of which, when my work day comes to an end I now still have energy. I also seem to be in a better overall mood. Not to mention that I am resenting the three days per week I can’t go to the gym: Wednesdays (church), Saturdays (Sidewalk Sunday School), and Sundays (gym closed). I should have picked a gym with longer hours. Since I didn’t, I’m thinking of getting a stair-stepper or walking machine. I am truly liking this exercise thing.
