Shape Up! – Week 8


This is week eight in my series of Shape Up!  The weekly post on what I did over the last week in my quest to getting healthier.

So I have had one very busy week.  I have seen quite a few well-known people in this area in the last week including Bob Zany, Donnie Baker, James Spann, and Connie Schultz.  And all of them referred their social media readers to my blog to read my posts.  I would like to thank you all for doing that.  In fact on Friday I had over 700 readers visit Young’s Blog.  And I also crossed the 10,000 readers mark.  I am simply amazed that each week more and more people are reading something I started seven months ago.  This is going to help bring some great things to this blog.  So stay tuned everyone!

Over the last week I had meals that I could make quick and easy.  Some nights I had chicken and other nights I had a sandwich.  With all of the popular guests I am seeing sometimes you do not have time to do much cooking.  Yes I went out one night because of the ABC 33/40 Storm Alert tour.  But I went to Arby’s and had a roast beef sandwich.  And it is really not a bad choice.  It only has 350 calories and 12 grams of fat.  The only bad thing is the sodium.  This a really great tip for all of you watching your weight.  Many chain restaurants post their nutrition info. on their websites.  So before you go out just look online to see what is a good thing to eat.

This is the one thing I wish I could be doing more.  Exercise!  I sound like a broken record when I am saying this but I have been unemployed for seven months now.  And I am still looking for my 14th job in six years.  Maybe that’s the reason why no one will hire me?  I thought I had a job lined up over the last week but at the end it was given to someone else.  This has happened several times since I became unemployed.  The only thing I have been doing is walking.  I wish I could hire a trainer or go to a gym but with little income you can not do that.  My ultimate wish right now is for someone to give me a job.  Let’s hope that happens soon or I might be writing these posts from under a bridge.
