Re: Fitness Checkin

Starting next week I'll be moving into a daily stretching/speedwalking
routine. When Spring comes around and I get a bike that will turn into
a daily one hour riding session to be supplemented later in the Summer
by weight training.

I have some uh... plans for next season. http://www.boiseburn.com

Re: Fitness Checkin

I just don't think I did anything too different from what I normally do. Maybe I just worked extra hard. I dunno.

My muscles are looking a lot bigger this week than they have in a long time. I think they're finally remembering how much bigger I used to be.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Hey fitness chickens! Actually, I was more of a fitness ostrich last week with my head stuck in the sand. (Nah, I don't need to work out today I can do it tomorrow). I don't know if it was the cold or what.

Thankfully, I think I'm over it. I had pilates Thursday night. Yesterday I did a spin workout then today I did upper body weights followed by lower body matwork with the "magic circle" aka torture device from hell.

Yeah, I think I'm back...

Re: Fitness Checkin

I just got started last week, finaly.

Pretty much just stretching and walking for now.

At about 4:30 AM I stretch then start walking.
Walk for a mile or two then head home and relax.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I have been having some seriously crappy workouts the last week or so. I don't know why, but I just have no energy.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I'd been seriously struck down by that cold I got a few weeks ago, really lingered and beat me down, attacked everything. But now that it's finally over and fully out of my system I can get back to my program.

I made myself a 14 week program and was 3 weeks into it before I got taken down by that cold. So what I think I'll do now is start from Week 1 all over again and consider that last bit a heavy warm-up.

I've been the same through the week which made me really lazy - though for some reason tonight I couldn't tear myself away. I've probably had the best workout in a while thanks to a sudden mood change

Though mirrors are my enemy... not in a bad way, I just keep taking a moment out to check myself out. Vanity attacks

joined a gym a couple weeks ago . . . it's great because I go past the place on my way home from work, so under absolutely no circumstances can I use the excuse "too out of the way"/"don't want to drive that far" etc

been doing treadmill . . . nothing too exciting.
avg about 2.7 mph started at 15 minutes and then 20, 25 and did 30 minutes yesterday and even managed a 4mph jog for about a minute towards the end

I'm about 275 at the moment, and for years and years I've been pretty sedentary, so it's taking my muscles and tendons a while to get used to it
Hey backstept, congratulations! You're gonna feel better and better!
I do!
I've really enjoyed my 40 minute treadmill sessions this week
down to about 268 now if my bathroom scale can be believed

I haven't noticed any change in my waistline, but I'm sure I will at some point . . . like you can never see the hour hand move, but it does

Re: Fitness Checkin

I've finally had a couple decent workouts the past few days. I'm trying to get my diet and sleep schedule back in order, but it's tough. My body was designed for a 30-hour day.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I hear ya, it's been a real pain in the ass for me trying to get to sleep early and reset my schedule. Hopefully tonight I'll make some more progress.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I haven't gotten too far into my personal training studies, but just the first few chapters of my textbook have already given me some new ideas. I can't wait to learn more (something I never said when I was studying Accounting...).

Re: Fitness Checkin

down to about 260 from 274 at the beginning of the year
I can comfortably zip up my jacket now
my ponderous paunch is becoming less pronounced

although about 5 of those pounds I lost as a result of the flu late last week, so I haven't been to the gym in a week which is bumming me out . . .

Re: Fitness Checkin

I started my last two workouts with a half hour of cardio, which is totally unprecedented. I hate cardio.

I alternated between the elliptical and treadmill, and I brought a book with me. It kept me from getting bored. I don't mind the actual act of cardio; it just takes too long, and I normally get annoyed and stop before I accomplish anything.
