It Works!

March 16, 2016

I've been going to the local gym since Feb 24 and I love it!

It's so incredible to be able to move without pain. None in the old hip and none in the new hip.

As per usual, I'm probably doing too much. Workouts were running 2 hours per day, but with some changes, that's now about 1:50. Still a lot. But so far, so good.

I had been going at 9 am, but I found that this really screwed up my work day. So for the last few days I've been going at 6 am. If I leave the house at 5:50 am, the timing is perfect. And then I'm done and on my way by 8:30 am. The added bonus is that the gym is almost completely empty. Awesome!

I find this a much better schedule, although I'm still trying to adjust my evenings to go to bed earlier.

I've been keeping track of my progress and since March 1, I've cycled over 300 km (and I'm on track to hit 600 km this monyh. I've just added rowing, so my arms get a bit of a challenge, too.

The results: weight down 5.5 lbs in 16 days. And 32 lbs since January 2015.

Hopefully I'll stay motivated and efforts will continue to pay off. I'd like to lose another 47 lbs.

And So I Goes...
