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

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!”

January 2017 Fitness Diary!

My goal for the year is to weigh X kilograms by the end of 2017. That will require a monthly weight loss of 1.1 kilograms. That is an achievable goal if I increase treadmill minutes, exercise regularly, AND watch what I eat. Put like that, it sounds so easy! The exercise part won’t be a problem. And I do always watch what I eat, I just don’t “watch” what I eat. That’s the trick.

Sunday, January 1: A rest to start the year after a fun night performing music. My gym was closed anyway.

Monday, January 2: Sixty and three treadmill minutes to begin the year. (Cumulative Total: 63)
