I’m very excited about two things – one is that it’s finally spring, even if it’s only about 36 degrees in New Jersey.
The other good thing is that I bounced back from a weekly weight gain after going to South by Southwest. While I picked up two pounds for the weigh-in last week, I ended up dropping four for this week.
But this week brings a new challenge, as I have another conference – Search Engine Strategies in New York City.
The plan is to exercise some discipline with the eating and drinking, and actually incorporate some exercise this time around.
But back to springtime, I am excited about a break in the weather, so I can get out to shoot hoops and take walks.
One thing from my affiliate fatblogging video last week, Tim Jones of TheRealTimJones.com mentioned in a comment that he started at about the same time and weight as I did, and he’s down to 213.
So I’m just going to say it here and now – I’m gunning for you, Tim Jones. And I’m going to win.
Anyhow, I currently work out at a gym called Lifetime Fitness, and it’s a great place to go, but there are days when I just can’t find the time to get over there.
We do have an elliptical in the house that my wife uses, but since I use one at the gym, I’d rather do something else at home. Also, we ended up putting it in a room where the drop ceiling is sort of low, and I’d literally have to take a panel out of the ceiling to use it – and the few would be horrible.
I’ve never really worked with weights, so maybe it’s time to get started with them. But I don’t have the first idea about the various brands and whatever, so if there are any affiliates that can recommend some sort of basic setup for me to buy (with their affiliate link) in the comments, I’ll go and buy it through you.
Just some free weights – nothing crazy. I figure I can set it up in the garage, which is next to my office, and then I can go in there sometimes to blast music, grunt, and pump some iron.
Starting weight: 225
Last week: 221
This week: 217
