YouTube is promoting #Shorts so I thought I would try it. It’s pretty challenging to do a Top 5 list in under 60 seconds! However, not sure if it’s something I’ll do often, but fun to try for something different. What do you think? Do you like the YouTube #Shorts format or not?
As you can see by the scale, I have added 2.5lbs since I last weighed myself, which is surprising as you can see by Apple Watch fitness tracker that I worked out 5 days out of the 7 (the center ring). I also hit the Move goal 7 out of 7 days as well (the outer ring). The blue turquoise center ring is the standing goal, which I always hit.
So, to help step it up a notch, my wife and I have decided to get an elliptical cross trainer (pictured above) in the house and start using that for a better workout. That’s how I lost all that weight 10 years ago, which was hitting the elliptical for 20-30 minutes every single day. I was hoping to be able to get back into my gym by now, but Washington State is on the verge of going backwards in our phases of covid shutdowns next week because of raising cases and hospitalizations…so… I’m not waiting for that and instead I’ll bring at least part of the gym inside the house! Wish me luck!
