My New Year's Resolution was to get into better physical shape.
One month update:
Went to Doctor for physical exam and permission to start exercising. Was told okay, can begin exercise program - BUT start off easy, don't try and undo 20 years of nothing with 20 days of hyper activety.
Program going well, so far. Well, sort of.
Following Doctor's orders to start slow. Am now doing one situp per day.
In the morn I get out of the bunk - that's the first half.
At night I do part two and lay down.
Will reach two per day when I start taking an afternoon nap.
Normally use my left hand when drinking from my beer
stein. Decided to alternate hands so both sets of arm muscles would have balanced development. Seem to have doubled my beer consumption
but that's okay - those six-pack abs won't develop on their own.
Started to buy only one six-pack of beer when I go to the store. Wife says that doesn''t count because I now go to the store twice a day. I said well, that means I'm doubling my daily walking excursions. Wife says that doesn't count cause I take a taxi home on both trips.
When visiting my wife at hospital I eschew the elevator and take the stairs. Wife says it doesn't count since her room is on the ground floor.
My wife tells me each time I visit to stop worrying, that she'll be alright. But apparently worry can cause weight loss. Not sure if I should tell her she's undermining my weight-loss program.
Fitness guru at the gym said she wanted to check my wristband physical monitor
thingy every two days so she could track my progress. Yesterday she complimented me on how many klicks I was accumulating.
BTW - I figured out by putting that thingy on our dog's tail that she tail-wags at the rate of 6.2 kilometers per day. Just in case you're curious about those sort of things.
