Get In Shape: Week Two

Things are really kicking into gear this week for me in the workout department. I did two-a-day's again and lifted every night. This seems to have enough of a synergistic effect that combined with eating a clean diet, I am keeping on my weight loss path.

This week's loss: 2 1/2 lb.

Total weight loss: 6 lb.

That is good news. It means that my body is shedding the unhealthy fat and building lean mass, which helps sustain me. I also like to think that working out helps my blood re-oxygenate and keeps me from getting sick. The multi-vitamin I am taking is also a good help.

Sorry for being so obsessed with my fitness, but I just can't help it. With so many people today suffering needlessly from chronic pains and illnesses due to obesity and lack of exercise, I just don't want to take the chance of being lumped in there. With my family's medical history and the amount of stress I experience in my daily life, I worry that I would suffer a heart attack otherwise. That is a sobering thought that is enough to get me in the gym. I am 41 now. I don't want to have less then 10 years of life left. I want to live to be nice and old. Heh.

Have a great weekend! I will see you back here tomorrow for comic book talk.

Wait, you're saying sorry for not wanting to be obese?

Yeah, she does that kind of thing all the time. Apologizing for something that either isn't her fault, or is something one shouldn't have to apologize for.

I've spend over a decade trying to break her of the habit. You can see how well I've done. Sorry about that. ;)

I am pretty odd, but you knew that. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings who doesn't want to diet. Strange, huh? I guess I should work more towards encouraging people then feeling bad about my obsession with it.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to be healthy. I think about it all the time while eating junk food (heh heh)

Now, those crazy comics on the other hand, you should be apologizing for that!

(was the joke too strong? Sorry)
