Weight Loss Wednesday – The Workout Edition


By the time this is all edited and uploaded, Weight Loss Wednesday will be Thursday, but I thought I would take you on a brief tour of some of my workout activities as I continue to whittle my frame into submission.  I filmed this at Shapes Fitness of South Tampa using my HTC Evo, and edited the final product with Windows Movie Maker.  I’ve been on the elliptical a few more times since I recorded this session.  My legs feel like jelly when I get done, but it feels pretty good to know that my muscles are responding to the torture exercise.  Who would have thought that exercise could be so much fun??  Certainly not me!  But I am really liking my time in the gym.  I might just become a gymaholic!  I wonder if there’s a 12-step program for that?

I am really encouraged by all the support and comments that I have been getting here and on Facebook.  I have always wanted to inspire people, but I would have NEVER thought that I could inspire others to work out!  Thank you for telling me that my efforts to be a better, healthier person are making a difference for you, too!  I am humbled.  And if you know me, you know that is RARE!  If any ladies out there would like to join me in the gym, I’ve got free guest passes!  Just give me a shout and I can hook you up…I would love a workout buddy!

I am seeing changes in my stamina and in my body, and that is really encouraging.  My brother-in-law and my step-dad even noticed!  That feels really good.

I am happy to report that I have been able to stay under the 330 mark and am now the proud owner (and user) of the Wii balance board.  I’m still looking for suggestions for the under 300 reward…  any takers?
