December 2018 Fitness Diary!

Saturday, Dec. 1: A 35-minute weights session on an empty stomach started the month: sides, lower back, calves, hamstrings, thighs, biceps, traps, forearms, back, and lats. I mixed up the order today as well for a change.

Sunday, Dec. 2: I walked just over 13 kilometers and just had the one large meal.

Monday, Dec. 3: A 24-minute treadmill session after work started this month’s cardio campaign.

Wednesday, Dec. 5: A morning weights session before breakfast: chest, shoulders, triceps, forearms, sides, lower back, and calves.

Saturday, Dec. 8: A short but intense 15 minutes of weights: back, lats, biceps, forearms, hamstrings, thighs, sides, and lower back.

Monday, Dec. 10: I completed a longer weights session today in the early evening: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, forearms, calves, sides, lower back, hamstrings, and thighs.

Saturday, Dec. 15: Back exercising after a bit of a break due to a busy few days and my bi-annual health check. Weights and cardio: back, lats, biceps, forearms, sides, lower back, calves, and 13 treadmill minutes.

Monday, Dec. 17: A 45-minute weights session was completed after work: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, thighs, hamstrings, calves, forearms, lower back, and some set of side extensions.

Thursday Dec. 20: The semester is over and my vacation fitness program began with a late night weights session: back, biceps, lats, forearms, calves, thighs, hamstrings, lower back, and sides.

Saturday, Dec. 22: Weights and cardio today: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, sides, lower back, forearms, calves, and 12 treadmill minutes. That was only my third treadmill session of the month, but I feel pretty fit, and I have been walking a lot.

Monday, Dec. 24: A cardio session in the morning began my Christmas festivities, My session was interrupted when my treadmill suddenly stopped after 13 minutes. Perhaps my headphone cable bumped the sensitive stop button. I restarted and ran an extra nine minutes at a faster pace. No incline today, and that could be the source of my sore neck.

Tuesday, Dec. 25: A brief weights session between Christmas breakfast and Christmas dinner: back, lats, biceps, forearms, sides, and lower back.

Wednesday, Dec. 26: An evening weight session was followed by a five-kilometer walk in the cold: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, calves, thighs, and hamstrings.

Thursday, Dec. 27: A 15-minute treadmill run, and I walked about 8 kilometers throughout the day.

Saturday, Dec. 29:  A pretty solid weights session was begun some twenty hours into a fast, and once again I noticed I seemed to have more energy: back, lats, biceps, forearms, sides, lower back, calves, hamstrings, and thighs. I also walked about 14 kilometers in the evening and into the night, trying out my new noise cancelling headphones, which are amazing.

Monday, Dec. 31: I ended the month of December and the year of 2018 with a 52-minute weights session: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, forearms, sides, lower back, calves, hamstrings, and thighs.
