Well, yesterday was the baseball game that never ended. I know the players probably hated it, but what a way to start the season. 13 innings and 4 hours and 45 minutes later it ended with the Red’s losing 3-1. Sigh, ah well there are 161 more chances to win this season. And to think it was a 4:00 start and I figured between work, dinner and the gym I would still miss the game. Nope, had time to catch the last few innings on TV when I got done with the gym. All in all it was a good day. Now just disappointed I have to miss my son’s tennis match today.
Well, I did it! I finally dropped a pants size. Although I think these smaller pants have a different fit if that makes sense. But, today they buttoned easily when I was done with the morning workout.
I have noticeable improved on this particular workout. I do a 3 day cycle. I ride hard on day one. Day 2 is the cardio workout where it adjusts the tension to keep a target heart rate. 2 months ago when I really started dedicating myself to working out again, the machine would level off about setting 5. Now it levels off around level 13. So, I can tell my cardio work is paying off. Then on day 3 I have another hard workout. My only real issue with the getting better is that day 2 isn’t so much an active recovery day anymore. But it’s all good. I am glad it is improving.
I was thinking something the other day. It is sort of amazing. I have finally started getting comments from people about losing all this weight so far. It is sort of surprising it took about 50 pounds for people to start commenting. And I was wondering if I had just been at that point where it just took losing a lot of weight to change the appearance significantly. Oddly too, I am starting to finally admit to people how heavy I really was. And by extension, how heavy I still am. That was sort of a new one for me. I mean, here I have been honest. But with friends it was a little harder to admit how bad it got. But at the same time i can understand why people don't comment since I am horrible about commenting to others myself.
Ah well, it is interesting that I noticed this. And honesty is never a bad thing.
