April 11, 2005
OK, today I did:
– 2000m on rowing machine in about 8m20s (Slowed down toward end due to sweaty hands – must find solution)
– 1650 steps on the multitrainer in 15m (Thats just poor!)
– A liitle bit of weights on the legs
– 10 lengths of the pool
Ok, the whole point of this section of my blog which I created back in February was to keep track of my fitness and stuff, but as usual I have failed miserably…
So new term, new leaf. I have decided after going to the gym for the first time in a month that I will endeavour to do some exercise at least every other day, if not every day because to gain 4kg in a month (and no I don't think its muscle) although I'm not overweight can't be going in the right direction.
I'm not going to write one of my legendary fitness timetables as I won't keep to it. Instead I'm going to introduce a rule:-
No Formal Exercise = No Chocolate + No Tv/Movies + No alcohol
Seeing as I know for a fact I can't live without chocolate or alcohol or some light relaxation watching an episode of 24 or the west wing I thing this is a reasonable punishment.
Notice the word formal in there, thats to stop me using the excuse that lifting a couple of boxes or a pint up to my mouth as exercise. If I'm not wearing shorts, then it certainly doesn't count
