I’m in the Capitol City, so I’m a long way from any scale. I went to Applebee’s last night on the way and that was pretty good, although I think next time I’m going to skip the rice, as it really seemed to make me hungry.
I’ve come out here quite a bit and have never used the workout room before until today. It’s not great — about the only thing they have that I can really use is the treadmill, so I went on that for about 30 minutes. They had a fat burning setting, but I didn’t know how to use it very well (now I do!). Still, though, I’ve added that workout to my routine, which is better than where I was.
I thought that on Fridays, I would talk about the benefits of this program for me. The purpose of this is to try to encourage anyone who’s not yet getting on the fitness bandwagon to climb on board. I am by no means in any sort of great shape yet. I’m still carrying a lot of extra weight, but you know what? I’m not carrying as much extra weight and relatively speaking, I’m feeling a lot better. A lot better.
One small thing that I’ve noticed: I now weigh less than I did when I got married. As a result, my wedding ring, which used to cut a little into my finger, is now relatively loose. It’s not in any danger of falling off as I still have to urge it over the knuckle, but it is a lot more comfortable. That’s pretty cool.
