July 2018 Fitness Diary!

Monday, July 2: July’s fitness campaign kicked off with a 7 am, pre-breakfast 75-minute weights session: back, biceps, lats, abs, calves, thighs, hamstrings, and forearms.

Tuesday, July 3: Thirty-three cardio minutes over two sessions with calf raises in between and afterwards.

Wednesday, July 4: Early morning pre-breakfast weights session: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, forearms, and abs. I expect I’ll be very sore tomorrow.

Thursday, July 5: Cardio in the morning (37 minutes) and some calf and ab work.

Friday, July 6: Another pre-breakfast workout: back, lats, biceps, abs, calves, hamstrings, and thighs. It’s sure been a while since I strung five straight exercise days together.

Tuesday, July 10: Pre-breakfast weights: chest, shoulders, traps, triceps, and core. I seem to have quite a bit of energy when I exercise on an emptyish stomach.

Friday, July 13: Back in the gym after a couple of accidental days off. Just cardio after work – 17 treadmill minutes. Summer is certainly here and energy levels are lower.

Saturday, July 14:  An afternoon 45-minute weights session: lats, back, biceps, forearms, thighs, hamstrings, inner thighs, and lower back.

Monday, July 16: A 13-minute cardio session and some core and calf exercises were completed after fasting for almost 21 hours.

Tuesday, July 17: A 25-minute weights session after lunch which was breakfast: chest, shoulders, traps, triceps, and calves.

Friday, July 20: A 14-minute treadmill session after work was the extent of my exercise today. Not bad considering this heat wave and the fact I taught for 4 hours in a classroom with very weak air conditioning.

Saturday, July 21: I almost skipped today’s workout due to the heat, but I resisted the temptation and ended up completing a 32-minute weights session: back, lats, biceps, core, thighs, hamstrings, inner thighs, calves, and forearms.

Saturday, July 28: Well, I took the week off. While I didn’t exercise, my diet in terms of reduced meals and less calories consumed was pretty good though. I made it to the gym after my TNKR lesson, but before breakfast for a short sharp chest, shoulders, traps, triceps, calves, and core workout. I don’t expect to be sore tomorrow. The amazing news is I was surprised to find my weight was down to 91.9, a record low. Yesterday, when visiting a doctor, I was asked my weight. I said around 96 or 97.

Monday, July 30:  Just a short 6-minute inclined run because that’s all I had time for before work. And wow, my weight is below 90 for the first time in over a decade!

Tuesday, July 31: I ended July with a short back and core workout. Probably no more than twenty minutes. Long day at work and lots on my mind. Wish I could jump ahead to the end of August and see how things are.
