Waist So Skinny - Mondays

Drop 10 Lbs and Do It Now Campaign of 2011: Week One Results

I am somewhat pleased to report the following weight-loss results for the week of April 4-April 11, despite having spent two days at my grandfather’s (aka “The Land that Time Forgot”), where the healthiest food in town comes from the Wendy’s drive through.  In other words, diet successfully blown in 48 hours. Regardless:

Weight: -2.8 Lbs

Times I Exercised: None.  (Shut up – baby steps, you know)

I impulse bought the Ab-Circle Pro last week after getting sucked in by the mini-infomercial:

Since it’s small enough to fold up and slide under the couch, I thought I might be motivated to use it while I watch TV.  But, then again, that was the theory behind my elliptical, too, and we all see how well that worked out.  Basically though, I’m a sucker for As Seen on TV exercise products, and the reviews on ACP were surprisingly decent.  However, there are several reports of this little machine being a little bit difficult for those who are coordinationally challenged, including horror stories of sliding off of the knee pads and wiping out at regular intervals.  As we all know (see “Drop it Like it’s Hot” for a typical day in my life), I am the world’s biggest klutz.  So, if nothing else, the Ab-Circle Pro will provide a flurry of business for the local ER and hours of entertainment for any circumstantial bystanders.  Too bad for you guys I’m not too handy with a video camera, or I would post my efforts.  (Well, probably not.  I’m all for self-humiliation, but that may be taking things a bit too far…)

So, anywho, hopefully my report will be better next Monday.  Keep your fingers crossed that I can stick with it this week.

Congrats on the loss! I'm curious to see how this ab thingy works for you. :) I've been using the Jillian Michaels videos-- they're pretty good. And, only $9-10 at target.

Wow...as a fellow klutz, I can relate. My wife says the main reason I still read Archie comics is because I am Archie in terms of my dexterity

@ Katie - Thanks! I'll keep you posted on my success (or lack thereof) with the ACP. I have some really good videos, too, but I NEVER use them. I need a roommate to motivate me, I think...

@ Chris - HAHAHA - I didn't even know they still made Archie comics! Yeah, I feel like there was a character in a popular TV show that was like me - always spilling, tripping, etc. - but I can't remember who. Thanks for following!!
