As I continue to work out…
Day 14: I didn’t do a video. I didn’t want to do anything. It’s too freaking cold outside. All I want to do is curl up under a blanket and read/edit Drawing On Love. I know I wrote it, but I’m loving that story! Plus, those 2 pounds disappeared after a day. (Yeah, I weigh myself at the same time each morning.) Anyway, Wife dragged me to Pools and Fitness, so I did 20 min on the treadmill and 15 on the elliptical. Then I had grilled mushroom, onion, and Swiss, with a side of Baked Lays. Imma workout, Imma eat.
Day 15 and 16: I hit P&F both days, doing 20 min on the treadmill and 20 on the elliptical. It turns out that I like listening to love songs while I work out. There’s nothing like being on the treadmill and singing along to Laura Branigan’s Power of Love. Judging by the looks from people near me, they found my choice of music strange. Or maybe they objected to my horrible vocals. Get headphones, people. Imma workout, Imma sing.
Day 17: Day off. Kids were at an event, so Wife and I spent time together.
Day 18: Did yoga this morning, hitting P&F this evening with Twin #2. I have not lost any more weight, but I feel great.
Day 19: Wife made me go for a mile walk with her and the dog. It was nice. Then I ate red peppers and cheese for dinner, half a bag of sour cream and cheese chips because I couldn’t stop, and a mint chocolate yogurt bar for dessert. I can’t seem to stop eating. I guess it took me 20 days to go off the rails. Better luck tomorrow?
Day 20: No working out today. Long work day. Grilled cheese for dinner. Beat Wife at Trivial Pursuit. Guessing is my thing.
Day 21: I learned the 3/4 hip sway, or something along those lines. I also learned “snake arms,” which I nailed due to my ability to do the wave. It turns out that 80’s break dancing moves were useful! Thank you, Breakin and Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo–you weren’t just bad movies I loved.
