October 2017 Fitness Diary!

Sunday, October 1: I walked about eight kilometers instead of going to the gym. Last month, I lost my exercising momentum partly because I started walking more and sweating less in the gym. I’m all for walking as exercise, but in my case it shouldn’t come at the expense of gym time and serious sweaty behavior.

May 2017 Fitness Diary!

Monday, May 1: I made it to the gym after a huge power nap in my office and despite a lingering, annoying cold. The nap did me good though, and I ended up completing a pretty impressive – by my standards – workout: lats, biceps, back, abs, lower back, and 68 treadmill minutes. Not a bad start to the month. (Cumulative Total: 68)

Tuesday, May 2: Seventy-four treadmill minutes, and unless I’m mistaken, that’s my nagging cold taken care of. (Cumulative Total: 142) Continue reading “May 2017 Fitness Diary!”
