Welcome to Day 3 of the Fat Loss Quickie/Computer Butt Be Gone Challenge. (Yes, it changes names daily. I get bored easily! lol.)
It looks to me like we've got at least 20 participants. Most of us are doing Scott's program, and we've got a few others who are doing other forms of exercise and checking in here for the accountability. You are welcome to join us either way!
The only criteria is that you do some form of exercise daily (more than you've been doing) and check in here. We'd love to cheer you on!

As for me, OUCH. lol. Actually, I'm not as sore as I really should be, since I don't have my weights yet, but my muscles actually feel like I've used them, which is good.
I'm planning on doing the 10 minute resistance in the morning and then the 10 minutes of cardio once my daughter gets off the school bus. If I do the cardio in the afternoon, I can see her doing her homework at the kitchen table while I work out – plus I'm setting a better example that mommy's not a computer potato. <- uh, oh. Did I coin a new phrase? lol.
I think this will work best. Since I work from home anyway, and sit around in a t-shirt and shorts and my running shoes all day, it should help me to avoid too many obstacles. The HARDEST thing for me is pulling myself away from my work when I know how much I want to accomplish in a day.
But — if I can't take 10 minutes to improve my quality of life then my priorities are really out of whack big-time. When I measured myself with the tape measure the other day, it was a huge eye opener. (Pun intended.) I know what those numbers were 2 years ago, and … not good.
So, another day of no wine, and another day of seeing Scott's smiley face on my computer screen encouraging me to live the livestyle that I dream of in a body that allows me to do so.
PLUS, of course, let's be honest. I want to look better on the cruise in January AND have some nice new clothes that are a size (or two) smaller at NAMS.
Quote from Home Office Quickie Workout Scott:
My weight and appearance were the least of my concerns. It was my quality of life that upset me the most. I was miserable in my body and I felt like crap. But it’s amazing how you simply adapt and become ‘comfortable’ with living in an overweight body and constantly being in a state of discomfort.
For example, bending over to tie my shoes or ice skates and having to hold my breath while I laced’em up. The feeling of my jeans squeezing tightly against my waist. That constant full and bloated feeling after I ate. And avoiding the mirror at all costs.
Let's find 10 minutes every day to get healthier so we can enjoy the LIFESTYLE that we're working towards.
((hugs)) to all.
