So I was all gung-ho about exercising and getting more healthy. I am not trying to focus on losing weight, but that would be a nice. I’d also like to lost an inch or two from the waist, so I could wear all those pants in my closet again.
Things have not gone real well thus far. On my third day of working out I was jumping rope when I stopped I had a huge head-rush. It was awful. My head felt like it popped. I was dizzy and I thought I was going to throw up. I considered calling 911 because I thought I had a stroke. But I drank a bunch of water, put my head down and was able to get back at it, and actually felt pretty good.
Then I went on vacation for a week. When I returned to the gym a couple of days ago I got back on the scale. You can foget about 301. Try 305!
Since my original rant I have now worked out four times, but this will be my first full week. Those were just warm-ups. And I can feel a little difference. When I bench pressed the other day I did three full sets of 135 pounds for the first time, so I am making progress. My brother-in-law got me a muscle magazine for some extra inspiration.
No excuses this week. Up at 8 every morning (but Tuesday). Work our for an hour, back home to start my day by 10. I can do this, right?
