“Stupid Is What Stupid Does”

Since I started working out 12 days ago, I have only missed 1 day at Planet Fitness and I intentionally skipped that day to give my right hip flexor a break. Apparently it doesn’t like the elliptical either. I have watched others hop on this machine and stay on it like they are running cross-country with Forrest Gump. I get on the elliptical and more closely resemble a banana slug that is pretty much starting to dry up from the heat while halfway across the road.  So, no, I am not killing any records but I am at least putting in 30 minutes a day and also using the Total Body Workout at the gym.

That brings me to this….

So, for 12 days I have changed my lifestyle. I had actually started earlier in the year but I started keeping an accurate accounting of it 12 days ago. This morning I climbed on the scale eagerly looking for results and once again I was ready to throw that damn thing return the scale to the store due to inaccuracy; I was only down 2 ounces.  Insert adult language that you wouldn’t use around your mother right here _____________.  It was then that I had to put it all in perspective. I am down 6 lbs since I began 12 days ago which averages out to 1/2 lb per day.  And, I have noticed a change in how my clothes fit, so this was a reminder not to get hung up on the numbers and keep it about a healthy lifestyle.

My son called me early this afternoon sounding like he had landed a part in the Walking Dead, he left work early with the flu.  At my house flu means homemade chicken noodle soup, however, I didn’t want the carbs so I ate mine without the noodles. And no, I didn’t do this in my Instant Pot, this is a soup I love to cook on the stove.

Tomorrow I may just have to try out that elliptical again cause “Stupid is what stupid does.” ~Mrs. Gump
