28 sep 2012: the world i know

Notes decided to go with the 1 hour-ish cardio session today – it’s been a while since i hit the cross-trainer and it was time for a bit of cardio anyway. held a decent rate on the bike – over 100 rpm the whole time. treadmill was probably the most satisfying – i managed to […]

25 sep 2012: comfortably numb

aching a little today, not sure if it’s due to the 11km walk yesterday, or the work in the garden at the weekend. had a great night’s sleep, and didn’t wake until just before 4:30 (body recovering no doubt). as i did weights yesterday, i decided to hit the rowing machine this morning, opting to […]

doing it yourself

doing it yourself

in any process of development, improvement or learning, you must at some point feel able to cope without your teacher, guide or instructor. ¬†obviously you don’t turn your back on that source of expertise and knowledge, but if you remain completely dependent on that then you haven’t truly grown. so it is that i have […]

24 sep 2012: big exit

not much to report from the weekend – i spent most of the time weeding and digging in the back yard, so there’s a few muscles giving out indications of having been used. sunday night was a family dinner (cooked by yours truly), and none of the dishes would make it onto a Weightwatchers menu […]

ok, i give up! had to put in a late night fixing up some web stuff, resulting in my not waking up until about 6 this morning. got a bit annoyed at the failure rate of the week (in terms of not going down the gym most days) however… it dawned on me this morning […]

20 sep 2012: right in two

despite heading to bed early last night (20:30), i still managed to sleep until 5 this morning, giving just enough time to get ready and catch the early bus. hey ho, i guess the sleep was needed, so no point in worrying about it. there will be plenty more days when i can go for […]

who or what is mr fat guy?

who or what is mr fat guy?

as I have noted in today’s journal entry, I didn’t head to the gym today, but that’s not to say that it has been a non-productive day. far from it in fact… going for a morning and/or lunchtime walk is a familiar component in my typical daily routine, and is an increasingly “cerebral” activity, providing […]
