Major Update

I haven’t posted here in almost two weeks, so here’s an update for that time.


Monday, April 7th:
Thirty minutes on the StairMaster (if I recollect correctly).

Tuesday, April 8th:
Forty minutes on the StairMaster.

Wednesday, April 9th:
Only thirteen minutes on the StairMaster since we got some Astros tickets at the last minute and I had to get ready to go.

Thursday, April 10th:
I was quite proud of myself on this day because I did an hour and ten minutes on the StairMaster at pretty high levels too.

Saturday, April 11th:
Twenty minutes on the StairMaster before eating anything, effectively doubling my time.

Sunday, April 12th:
Twenty minutes on the StairMaster before eating anything, effectively doubling my time.

Monday, April 12th:
Either twenty or forty minutes on the StairMaster. I can’t remember.

Tuesday, April 13th:
Forty minutes on the StairMaster.

Wednesday, April 14th:
Twenty minutes at a pretty good clip on the StairMaster.

Thursday, April 15th:
Fell asleep when I got home and didn’t feel like exercising when I woke up, so I didn’t.


On other fronts, the water drinking and the eating decent lunches are pretty much out of the window. I’m having a crappy time at work and feeling a lot of pressure from other sources in my life and I’m doing something I haven’t done in probably six or seven years - comfort eating. I’m hoping I can begin to get some thing under control and not do this. Wish me lots of luck.

Weekly Wrap-up

I bet everyone thought I had died or at least quit exercising, huh? ;-) Not the case, so here’s the wrap-up for the week.

Wednesday
Steven and I went to the gym and I did biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, and lunges - four or five sets of varying reps for each. I also came home and did about thirty crunches.


Thursday
I got my hair done, so by the time I got home it was kind of late and I didn’t feel like working out, so I didn’t.


Saturday
I did twenty minutes on the StairMaster at level 3 before I ate which burns more fat. I also did forty crunches.

Sunday
Another twenty minutes before eating, but I forgot to do my crunches. Oops. Update: before going to bed I did twenty crunches.


I’m still drinking all my water (or close enough to it) at work. I’m getting ready to have a visit from Aunt Flo, though, so my eating is a little worse. I expect that trend to continue into this week, unfortunately.

First Full Day

Yesterday was actually the day I launched the site, but since I didn’t get to exercise then (my brother and his girlfriend came over for dinner), this is the first day I get to record everything.

Water
I didn’t get to drink all of my water today because our building had no water for a while and I had already had to pee in a toilet that wouldn’t flush plenty of times by the afternoon. I will drink all of it tomorrow, though.


Food
For lunch today I had a roasted chicken six inch sandwich from Subway. It did have cheese and I had a piece of bacon on the side, but it wasn’t a terrible lunch, I don’t think. For a mid-afternoon snack it was pretzels from the vending machine and then dinner was soup and toast with an orange for dessert.


Exercise
Today was my first day in the gym in a long time, so it was a good workout, but not overly tough. I would like to be able to move tomorrow. I started out with about four sets of lunges on the Smith machine with no weight. I then did four sets of shoulder presses with ten and twenty pounds of weight. I moved next to shoulders and did shoulder presses (sitting upright, pushing against the weight; have no idea what the proper term is), four sets with ten and twenty pounds. I finished up with bicep curls with twenty and thirty pounds in three sets. Later at home I did ten reps with the ab roller.
