exercise, books, hockey

Three weeks ago, ezzie00 and I started being serious about exercising. Every Monday I put on my exercise clothes, weigh myself, and measure my waist and hips. As of today, I've lost two inches from my hips and one from my waist, while keeping a constant weight. Yay!
Barnes and Noble is teh win! I picked up Fool's Errand by Robin Hobb and Sword Sworn by Jennifer Roberson today after work. Now to try and make it through them before Shadow Puppets by Orson Scott Card comes out later this month.
Red Wings are playing Colorado now, and I watched while I did my half hour of stretching for today (knee is too stiff for much else). Wings are leading 2-1 after the second period, and there have been several good fights. Yay hockey!

If you don't mind my asking, what were your measurements before you started your workout?

That's fine, I don't mind too much. Heck, I'll be getting measured for the wedding dress sometime in the next week so there will be lots more. ;) When I started my waist was 29 and my hips were 39, now they're at 28 and 37. Now I'm not exactly sure where to measure hips, so I just guessed and have been measuring the same place every time. That way if I'm wrong, I'm still getting proportional measurements.

And this is actually only two weeks of stuff, it was the third Monday that I had measured myself. If you like I"ll try to describe the situps that I do, as I think they're pretty helpful. Anyway, sounds like you had a good workout tonight, so good luck in keeping it up.

Yeah, I am really interested in the situp routine, if you can try to describe it. I'd had problems in the past of trying to do things that don't hurt my back too much. I'd really like something that will work my lower abs, which are mostly numb, but I can't tell if anything does that except for leg crunches, and even that feels too high.
