While I do not want my lifestyle change to be about the numbers on a scale, I feel it is important to check in on my progress from time to time. Since my aging scale has been struggling to turn on, I decided that it was time to replace it. When I got on the new scale, it weighed me in at 3 lbs heavier than my old scale. What kind of sorcery is this?! I was ready to
hurl it out the window take it back to the store and get a refund. Instead, I will suck it up and accept that my dearly departed, old scale was lying to me.
Today was day 9 at the gym and as I started up the treadmill, I realized that I am still sore from my time on the elliptical yesterday. I pushed through 30 minutes on the treadmill and then made my way to the Total Body Enhancement machine. If you haven’t been following along, this is a machine uses red light therapy to promote weight loss and tones your body by vibrating it ….imagine a jack hammer, now imagine you are standing on the jack hammer, I am certain that would be a close comparison. Strangely enough, this machine energizes me and improves my mood, probably because it shakes the hell right out of you!
Word of the Day: Hip Flexor – this is an upper thigh/hip muscle that may hurt if you have sat on your behind too many years and then suddenly try to get fit.
