Weekly Weigh-In, Week #15

(A continuation of the series over at the old LJ site.)

Loss since last weigh-in (4/4): 1.0 lb
2017 Cumulative loss: 17.6 lb
Pounds from goal: 5.8 lb

Still plugging away, even if the rate isn’t as quick as I like. The excuses for the past fortnight are a trip to Philly for the Phillies home opener and Easter Sunday. Still, it’s a nice problem when you’re removing excess weight slower than you prefer. Enough about that, however. What I’d really like to do is share a few thoughts from the gym this morning:

  • My two currently preferred types of music when working out are metal and disco. I’m trying to figure out what this says about me.
  • I’d love to see how Beavis & Butt-Head would’ve reacted to the video for Ghost’s “Year Zero,” even if it wasn’t fully suitable for MTV airplay. My guess is that out of boredom and frustration the two of them would’ve turned off the video about five seconds before the parts they would’ve salivated over.
  • One of the women who frequently uses one of the elliptical motion machines near my preferred machine flails her arms for a good portion of her workout. Unless she’s a fan of the Phoebe Buffay philosophy of exercising (if she is, then kudos to her,) I just cannot fathom why she’s doing that. If she’s not working hard enough, why not just increase the resistance or incline?
  • I’m still waiting for the day where the readout on the elliptical motion machine’s screen tells me that I have worked out enough for the rest of my life so that I don’t ever have to go back. I’m certain I will never anticipate or enjoy exercising; it just runs counter to my default programming and settings.
