In my quest to drop a few lbs and get in better shape (round, gelatinous is a bit tired and old, thanks) I have added another wrinkle to the weight loss game.
After this week's workout (more on that below) I was 15 pounds from my first of three goals. To make shedding those lbs more interesting Randy and I (he proposed it, but I was thinking it) to make a little wager. Being a gambling man, I accepted.
Here's the wager. If I drop 15 by May 4, he owes a charity of my choice $100. If I don't make it, I owe the same amount to a charitable cause of his choosing.
Randy already has his charity selected, and I will tell you more about it in coming posts. The problem is, I don't have one selected. So I am asking for your help.
Please send me the name and brief description of the charity you would like to see Randy donate to. Also include a short reason why the money is needed.
Following my glorious victory on May 4, I will select a charity.
But that's not all. Since this morning I have been thinking about other ways I can give back and I decided on another idea that I will tell you about later this week. (Gotta keep you reading, right?)
But now on to the work out and the scale.
First, we worked on TRX again. I have to admit those straps are a pretty cool, intense total body workout. You can really feel the ol' muscles working. I am even thinking about taking a class in TRX.
No kettle bells this week. (Kinda miss those guys. Guess they must be on Spring break). Plenty of kick boxing and I pushed the weighted punching bag all around the exercise room.
The bottom line, I was whipped. It was a tough workout that I will feel in the morning and for a couple days to come.
But it was a good week to get back to low numbers. I was down another 2.5 pounds, getting us to the magic number of 15.
And don't forget to send me a worthy charity and how it would benefit from Randy's Benjamin.
