Coming out of your comfort zone is tough in the beginning, chaotic in the middle, and awesome in the end…because in the end, it shows you a whole new world !! Make an attempt.― Manoj Arora, From the Rat Race to Financial Freedom
I was looking for a clever post to start this entry. I ran across this one. It’s a bit out of context as it is in relation to financial comfort zones, but it seems pretty applicable. So in the spirit of stepping out of my comfort zones…
My starting Weight this morning is 391.3. Interestingly, this is technically already about 10lbs down from my earlier in the year starting weight. and about 5lbs down over the last week or so. A good start, but will eat into my “easy weight” I think. From here out I’m going to use this at the benchmark, and just talk about the lost and the goal.
So far this morning, I have already done my starting weights workout. A deloaded, and demoralizing Stronglifts 5×5 workout. I added some extra arm workinto the standard 3 exercises. Standing Barbell Curls and Seated Tricep Extensions to be exact. I’m going to go with 4 standard workouts (+5lbs each day the exercise is done) to get back into the habit and loosen up a little, then i’ll start cheating the weight up 10lbs a shot instead of 5lbs. Until I start to actually feel the weight in the exercise.
I’ll walk this afternoon, and likely feel like a sweathog. It was 78 degrees, with a Heat Index of 88 already. Today will be swampy.
And Midmorning walk done.
