So, for a while I retired from blogging, but I’m back. This isn’t some sort of triumphant return – far from it. There is no victory – just I missed it and it’s free and it helps me clear my mind.
In April, I decided to get my fat tail feather in action and try to get back to some healthy habits and get the workout routine jump started. I decided to do this by attempting to workout every day. I do not think any human being should set this goal. As you know, I have done it a few times and I think it is stupid – but at the same time it is effective in forming a habit of working out. It proves to you that in the end, you have the time and you can do it. Great…. i’m tired. Will I do it again, surely. Somebody should smack me – but that would just make me grumpy, so please don’t.
This little graphic shows exactly what I have done – without my ‘rest days’ which were, in no particular order:
- 5 hours of yard work
- 3 hours of yard work
- Walks of up to 3.5 miles
- Housework – not just feather dusting – insane-o cleaning/moving
As you can see, I truly hit it hard in April. Even if you double any other month or combine any two, you can’t touch April. I’m proud of this but I think my body is in some sort of funk-a-dump. It’s not losing weight, its holding onto everything. I’ve been logging all of my activity and www.loseit.com which I really like. They didn’t used to have a droid app (bastards) but now they do (friends). They have a nice social interface and through the powers of modern technology everytime I step on my bedroom scale, my facebook gets updated with my weight. I’ve COMMITTED to stepping on it daily … so those of you who want to have ammunition to use against me, I’ve given you a canon!
Anyway – I ran 95 miles in April, rode a bunch too, had much fun. Now it’s time to get smart and focus more on eating and working out towards a goal. There is even a glimmer of p90x insanity in my eye. Still haven’t completely decided on that.
Until next time… Hasta la compastidor.
