Working Out

I have been doing pretty good lately at my workouts. I have been hitting the elliptical trainer pretty hard. I am using it about 5 days a week for 30 minutes. Each workout burns between 300 and 400 calories, so I am pretty pleased with my efforts. I have been doing this regime for a month now.

However, as usual when I engage in fairly serious workouts, my weight is going the opposite direction. Since I started the efforts about a month ago, I have gained about 15 pounds. My eating habits and calorie intake haven’t really changed. I am not really that concerned with the weight as long as I slim down and am healthier. This happens every time I undertake a workout program. Again, it’s the overall results to be watching, but you wish the weight adjusted down also as a motivation factor. Once, in my younger days, I gained 40 pounds in a workout regime that included a lot of weight training, but dropped two pant sizes and a shirt size.

My clothes certainly haven’t gotten tighter like one would associate with an extra 15 pounds. If anything, they are slightly looser, but nothing has a dropped a size. I certainly feel in better shape. I really like the elliptical trainer vs the treadmill or a weight training program.

Clearly, I will continue these activities and continue to monitor my progress.


  1. I just read this article and want to share something I was just introduced to. I started working with a Public Relations company and I’m so glad I did because we are working with doctors to help promote FBCx (F-bex). I got to try it out and fell in love. FBCx is an all-natural dietary fiber that is able to bind dietary fat and make you lose weight. You take it with your 3 regular meals having 20 grams of fat or more, so it’s really easy. If you’re on a low calorie diet it won’t work well for you, so get back to eating what you want. If you want to learn more or try it out for yourself, go to
