Ok, so I decided it was time to exercise again. I started out pretty basic. 20 pushups, 15 situps(that is all I could manage.) and 50 curls of 25lbs per arm, 20 toe touches and a 5 mile ride. I am dying. How sad is that? I can tell I am getting older, and I am gonna start exercising more to try and fight age every step. I dunno who thought up the bright idea of growing old gracefully, some fat person probably, but I am gonna fight it every step of the way! So I start my fight today, and will attempt to keep fighting every day. As long as it does not kill me. 😛
So I have started exercising again. I do mostly curls and riding currently.. I am riding around 10 miles a day to get started.. Just to try to get in better shape for other things to come.. In the past, I go for 2-3 months, then lose interest for a few months, then go for a few months, then stop.. etc. Well, I do not know currently if I will last any better this time, but I really wanna drop some weight again. I am starting to feel out of shape.. I do not mind looking a bit out of shape.. but the feeling is horrible. So, I am back at it.
Wish me luck! I have done 10 miles a day for the last 3-4 days now.. Can not remember which day I actually started.. I have also started not snacking after 8pm. In the past, the combination of these two things for a little over a month actually dropped my weight down to about 185.. Which is still horrible, but I was feeling better.. As someone who grew up a scrawny kid I feel huge at 185.. I am hoping to get back to 170 or so.. Maybe 175 or so..
I plan to do this by trying to change my life style.. Which means adding more exercise(we take our walk in Crew Lake Park every morning.) and just dropping any late night snacks.. I think it makes a huge difference. I figure the trick is, to add things in that are not to unbearable.. That way, I am more then willing to keep going with them.. So 10 miles a day in riding, and hopefully 100 25 lbs curls per arm every other day.. Then I will add in Push ups, then maybe some crunches.. Then we will see..
Really enjoyed these books! The overall story arc was great! I think Cris and Will were much more developed than Raena and Jason, but I enjoyed the entire series! Recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good space opera!
