Check out those numbers!

I’ve been involved in a biggest looser type competition the past 8 weeks of the summer. Everyone put 30 bucks into a pot and the winners won the dough.  There were three categories: most pounds lost, most inches lost and greatest body fat change.

I came in third place in the body fat change.  I also lost almost 15 pounds! Awesome.

Check out the numbers below.

Swimming Is Hard

I’ve been swimming the past three weeks off and on. Calling what I’m doing swimming is being generous…. It’s closer to drowning.

That is until today. I picked up a copy of Total Immersion swimming and have been working my way though the text. Today was my first attempt at using some of the techniques and…. Wow! I can really tell a difference. I can’t wait to see what else this book has to tell me…. Particularly in the area of breathing.
Also, the weight continues to drop…. In fact I finally had someone I hadn’t seen in a while remark that I looked thinner…. Yes!

Two Weeks Down..

Two weeks down in this new venture of walking to the gym by where I work…working out there and then going to work.

So far things are going really well!  The scale shows a weight loss of around 5 to six pounds and I feel great!  The exercise plus good diet is getting it done.

The only downside is being constrained by having to get to work and not having enough time for a thorough workout…I’m thinking of running here at the house and then walking to the gym to swim or lift weights. We’ll see, that would require waking up even earlier…always a tough call.

Still, things are good!
