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.

2017 Reading Dairy Part 3!

SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER

September began just as I was about a third of the way through the eighth and most recent Outlander novel entitled Written in My Own Heart’s Blood (2014).

On September 2, I completed part 2 and decided to delay reading the rest. I would like to keep going, but I also want to draw out the story for as long as possible as there is still no release date for the next book in the series. The author, Diana Gabaldon, has posted excerpts from it, so it’s well an truly on the way, but she warned readers not to expect publication this year. Hence, I’ll take temporary leave from the epic tale of Clair Fraser to diminish the waiting time should book 8 end on a cliffhanger. Continue reading “2017 Reading Dairy Part 3!”

September 2017 Fitness Diary!

Friday, Sept. 1: The month started with a nice weights session after lunch: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, thighs, hamstrings, lower back, and a few light sets for my calves and sides. I also worked around 18 kilometers, making the most of my pre-semester free time.

Saturday, Sept. 2: Rest day – a day of rest.

Photobucket in the News & Dead Links

July 7, 2017: Amazon, eBay Images Held to ‘Ransom’ by Photobucket

Well, Photobucket went just from free to $400 a year overnight with pretty much no notice, so if you see lots of dead photo links like the one below on this blog and my other sites, that’s why. I do hope to swap the dead links for live alternatives – and I just did that in a few posts – but it’s going to be a long, tedious, and arduous process, and I hate long, tedious, and arduous processes. Slow and steady wins the race, but it’s going to be a long, tedious, and arduous race. Thanks Photobucket.

July 2017 Fitness Diary!

Saturday, July 1: The month began with a weights session (lats, back, biceps, and calves) followed by a steep 22-minute treadmill session. I also walked about 12 kilometers as part of my new be-more-active-outside-the-gym initiative. (Cumulative Total: 22)

Sunday, July 2: Total rest day partly due to the rain.

Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR)Prince Party Fundraiser!

I’m really excited and proud to be performing at and hosting a fundraising event for TNKR, an NGO I’ve been volunteering at for well over two years now. My band is playing; plus, the event provides me opportunity to perform with some of my many musical friends beyond my band mates. I’m also really appreciative of the fact Cherie Yang, winner of TNKR’s fifth speech contest, will be speaking at the event.

Friday, June 2: Just an evening weights session: back, lats, biceps, calves, sides, abs, and lower back. Continue reading “June 2017 Fitness Diary!”
