Family That Exercises Together Loses Together

We started our Yoga routine Monday night that we found on Hulu and we all lasted about 30 minutes until we switched over to doing other exercises that we knew. We are going to try a different video for beginners and we will see how that goes. The important thing is that we were off our butts and moving around together for about an hour every night and everyone was having a good time without all the gizmos and gadgets in their hands.

I also finally took the plunge and shaved off my beard and what little hair I had left on top of my head and it will defiantly take awhile to get used to it but no more hiding behind a beard, I’m glad to show off what I’ve done and can’t to see what the difference is by the end of summer.

I am also changing my dairy needs over to goat dairy and we are very blessed to live about 4 miles from an Amish ran health food store so we did some shopping Monday night. I think I could spend hours in this place now, we bought fresh laid eggs, goats milk, goats cheese, and some other things but we had to leave because the kiddos were with us and thought spending 30 minutes looking at local healthy food was boring. Not this health nut, do you know how many calories you can burn reading all the labels at a health food store? Well I’m not sure either but it’s more than watching tv LOL.

One more thing before I end this entry. My wife hid the scale, the idea we have is to wait 30 days then remeasure our bodies and weigh ourselves then to see the difference, I hope I can wait that long, I’m already missing the scale. So I’m going to push it hard and make every minute and bite of food count. I can tell you that I’m more sore from what exercises we have been doing the last few nights than when I go to the gym.

Today We Start Our 30 Day YOGA Challenge!

Tonight the beard finally came off after three years of covering my heavier face! Tonight we are going to start a 30 day Yoga workout routine every night for the next 30 days to see the results. My wife, my four and five year old, and I are committing to throw something else into our healthier routine and Yoga sounded like a good idea and something we can all do together as a family. We are still going to count our calories and defiantly watch what we eat but this is something we are going to add to see the results and hopefully continue. We plan to hide the scale (I hope), take measurements, and take before & after pictures then wait 30 days to see what happens.

My confidence is growing EVERYDAY and I take pride in how I look and what goes into my body now. Officially down 74 pounds now and feeling AMAZING, we finally got a good snow the other day and I went out and shoveled 7 driveways, last year I would have just zoned out in front of the tv!! I hope in the next month or so my wife says the same thing she is down 36 pounds and looking absolutely GREAT but it took me a while to see the difference that everyone else saw. It will just take time, it wasn’t gained in a day and won’t be lost in a day.

This is NOT a diet, it’s a TOTAL lifestyle change and I couldn’t be more excited to see what our future holds.

Thanks for reading and I will keep you posted if I become a Yogi.
