Love the machine!

So, my new gym came in the mail yesterday. I got it set up and used it for the first time today. I like it! And it has a lot of capabilities. One thing I noticed from today’s beginner’s workout was that I can do leg squats without putting any pressure on my knees whatsoever.Continue reading “Love the machine!”

When the kitty’s approval is required!

I’ve just bought a home gym. It’s coming in the mail. It’s the Total Gym APEX G3. Here’s a link to it! (Only I bought one for less on eBay. Hoping for the best there!) Check out the one-minute video and see what it’s capable of! I have room for one of these contraptions inContinue reading “When the kitty’s approval is required!”

The day the music died.

I did a search to make sure I’ve never given this title to a blog post before, but what do you know? I haven’t. So, yeah, the music died earlier. I was at the gym doing my morning workout on the treadmill when it happened. Thus, I was forced to watch the treadmill’s television forContinue reading “The day the music died.”

My new goals

It’s occurred to me that I’m not really an unhealthy eater (although I certainly can be), but I’m not capable of dieting enough for weight loss. So I’ve been trying to watch what I eat while exercising myself to death. After a few days of crunching numbers and seeing what’s possible, my goal is toContinue reading “My new goals”

Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.

Dear Amy: I recently decided to move back in with my mom and younger sister for the remainder of the pandemic. The problem is that I find myself thinking extremely unkind things about them, because both of them are overweight. I find myself thinking almost obsessively about how gross I find their bodies and feelingContinue reading “Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.”

Unexpected!

Wow. I just had a mindblowing experience pertaining to my weight-loss efforts. Prior to when I quit eating flour, I obtained large quantities of Kodiak waffle mix. So, ever since I went off the flour, the mixes have been sitting there in the kitchen looking forlorn in their large tupperware containers. I gave it aContinue reading “Unexpected!”

My diet’s going great!

For anyone who wants to skip the usual family drama (nothing too negative) and start at the dieting stuff, scroll down to the asterisks! So, I’ve been cleaning the house for the past several hours so it’ll be nice and clean for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I’m quite pleased with my efforts. I evenContinue reading “My diet’s going great!”

Cards and cardio.

So, I sent out some Christmas cards today. Dear Grandpa Max,  Sorry I didn’t include a note with the hardcover my mom asked me to mail you. Media mail doesn’t allow for correspondence. So I thought I’d drop you a line and see how you’re doing. I hope you have a very merry Christmas! Oh, guessContinue reading “Cards and cardio.”

Wow. Just, wow.

I’ve been spaced out and completely unfocused lately. I’m not sure why, but maybe my body’s adjusting to the dieting. I’ve stuck with the no-flour diet without relapse since whenever it was that I started it. (A few weeks ago? I have no sense of time.) It’s not hard. There are ample snack foods, butContinue reading “Wow. Just, wow.”
