Rest Day turned out to be not so restful. 45 minutes on the #treadmill, 100 Bodyweight Squats (for the #SlimmingDownDadChallenge), followed by some Ab Work, and 30 minutes on the exercise bike left me soaked in sweat. #Motivation #Progress #Exercise #WeightLoss #WeightLossJourney #Fitness #FitnessJourney #FitFam #SweatySelfie #Selfie #SlimmingDownDad #HardWork #Determination
Last month I made I made an effort to try and post a weight loss journal update every day. There were days when I couldn’t get to it and I had to double up but those weren’t a regular occurrence. This month I seem to be moving in the opposite direction. While daily updates aren’t necessary, I feel like I’m making forward progress when I make them.
Despite having to double up again, there really isn’t a whole lot to talk about. Wednesday has become my rest day but I went ahead and worked out anyway. I wasn’t able to make it to the gym so I headed down into my basement and focused on cardio and ab work

Thursday is the day that I was seeing my personal trainer. Since those sessions are finished, I felt like I was in limbo. I didn’t have time for the gym so I headed back down into the basement to repeat the workout I did the previous night.
I’ve been keeping a closer eye on my calories this month. That, coupled with all the added cardio, should produce some positive results when I weigh-in on Sunday morning.
One of the real pleasures in life is the ability to hop on my motorcycle and ride. Often I'm not quite sure where I'm going, but I almost always wear a backpack. Neither my 2022 Yamaha MT-09 SP nor...
