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!”

March 2017 Fitness Diary!

Wednesday, March 1: March began with a bang with 81 treadmill minutes, core, calves, forearms, another 28 treadmill minutes, and a little more weights. (Cumulative Total: 109)

Thursday, March 2: At the gym by 7:30 am! Just biceps, traps, and calves to begin the session. Twenty-0ne treadmill minutes followed, and they ended with a sprint. A short but intense lats and back workout ended the session. (Cumulative Total: 131) Continue reading “March 2017 Fitness Diary!”

February 2017 Fitness Diary!

Wednesday, February 1: I had planned to exercise today, but, well, the “but” explains it. Looking on the bright side, I will start February’s fitness campaign tomorrow fully rested.

Thursday, February 2: Seventy cardio minutes accompanied by the end of two movies set on Mars: Red Planet and John Carter.

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)

Tuesday, November 1: I began November’s fitness campaign with a rest day.

Wednesday, November 2: Twenty-two treadmill minutes was today’s effort. I really need to eat less (and exercise more).

Thursday, November 3: A much-needed and long over-due weights session (chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, calves, and a little core work) was followed by 24 treadmill minutes. Continue reading “November 2016 Fitness Diary!”

October 2016 Fitness Diary!

Saturday, October 1: I’m still weary of weights due to a lateral muscle strain, but the treadmill doesn’t bother it, so on one I hopped to start October’s fitness campaign:

Sunday, October 2: Cardio again. I had hoped to stay on the treadmill longer, but the incline malfunctioned and increased despite all my button pushing to the contrary: Continue reading “October 2016 Fitness Diary!”
