A Prodded Post

At the thoughtful and much appreciated prodding of my friend Patrick (@Rspnsblty199), I'm going to give you a rundown of how the first week in May went for me. This is actually something I should be doing every week but I don't always get to it...OK almost never get to it.

May 1st weigh-in
"The Stairs"
Not much is new since my Official Monthly Weigh-In post. This past week was pretty good as far as my eating goes. I hit the gym when I was supposed to and got some decent workouts in. I also had some lazy workouts, but at least I got out there. The "secret" to this whole weight loss thing (or part of it) is to move more than what you were before and I am definitely doing that. I need to get back on the weight training kick I was on, but with it being so nice out lately I just wanted to workout in the park. I've taken to continuing my HIIT training on a nice set of stairs there and I'm actually enjoying it.

Oh, and as you might have read in my Biggest Winner post, that contest started yesterday and my first official weigh-in is today! I know, it's kind of weird that my first weigh-in is a day after the contest starts, but it's a city wide contest and there are weigh-in sites all around the city. My site lets you weigh-in every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays so today is the first day I am able to do it. No big deal though. I don't mind giving the others a  one day head start. They are going to need it! ;)

Last but not least, this past week I have been working on a new website. I put it live last night but it is FAR from being done. I just wanted to see it up and test my plugins for the comment section. If you would like, stop on by and take a look around. Click some links, test some buttons and make a comment. You can reach it at www.VinnySlavin.com. I have some very cool things planned for it and it has nothing (or very little) to do with fitness. It's kind of a place for me to get my other views out. It's also going to be a place where I can let my inner geek flow, write about product reviews, and possibly get some interesting conversations going on today's news topics. I'm really going to try and make it a site you'll want to visit daily. Keep in mind though that I am a major n00b when it comes to WordPress, so don't expect a fantastic site just yet. I'm still learning. Also I don't mind suggestions or critiques of the site either. So let the comments flow...good and bad.

Well that was my first week in May. I'm still waiting for my first clothes shopping trip since starting to lose weight and that might be coming soon. I can't wait to see how many inches I've dropped.

So what about you? How did your first week in May go? Do you think your goals will be hit by month's end? Let me know, I love hearing about it.


  1. Giving them a head start is a noble notion on your part. Still, take'em down!

    Gonna go check your new site...

  2. Down they shall go Patrick!!

  3. Hey vinny, I am on a great start to May. I have decided to really start losing weight again. I have been working out and really watch what I've been eating. I cant wait to see what can happen in a month.

  4. If you don't have time for workouts and still want to lose weight, you can try Toshiba PVT-375BT!! I lose weight and so happy about it!
