Out of commission.

There aren’t words for how discouraged I am. The injury to my shins hasn’t gone away. I’m pretty sure it was caused by spending time on the treadmill in shoes that were too heavy. I only wore them the one day, but I’m still having calf pain. So I finally realized I have to restContinue reading “Out of commission.”

Struggling but doing it!

I awoke with a dreadful headache and finally took some pain pills. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the gym today. It’s becoming harder and harder to go, especially since I haven’t yet conquered the footwear issue. I think my second pair of new shoes (which will hopefully work better than the first)Continue reading “Struggling but doing it!”

When the going gets tough…

So, I hit a wall. (Don’t worry. It was a metaphorical wall.) I decided last night to go ahead and not expect myself to use the treadmill on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings. That way, I can use those times to take twice-weekly showers, and I’ll still be burning 300 calories 12 times a week,Continue reading “When the going gets tough…”

Hell, yes.

Yeah, I’m braindead, but very  proud of myself. I think I started on this treadmill kick last Sunday. (It’s Saturday today, for reference, if you’re reading this in the future.) I spent one hour on the treadmill then, two on Monday, two on Tuesday, one on Wednesday (the day I spent four hours driving toContinue reading “Hell, yes.”

Self-torture is fun! (Not.)

So, I’ve still been spending an hour at a time on the treadmill. I did it once today (and hope to do it again later this evening), twice yesterday, and once the day before. All in all, I’ve burned 1,285 calories. I know I should be proud of that, but I’m concerned that I won’tContinue reading “Self-torture is fun! (Not.)”

The day I conquered the treadmill.

Guess who just spent an entire hour on the treadmill? Heck, yeah. I feel close to death. I kept my heartbeat in the range of 140-155 by going 2.2 mph at a 6.5° incline (more or less–I kept making slight adjustments). Yeah. A whole freakin’ hour. Oh, hey, guess what? I burned 325 calories. Nice…?Continue reading “The day I conquered the treadmill.”

This one goes out to the dishrags in my life…

Hi guys! Here I am. I’ve been lying low for a few days because I’ve been messing with my sedative. I’m trying to take substantially less in hopes of losing weight. Seroquel is extremely sedationary and has a bad reputation for weight gain. I was taking 300 mg but went down to 100 mg whileContinue reading “This one goes out to the dishrags in my life…”

More exercising news!

So, I’m still using my home gym, which seems like a great investment so far. I generally use it for… maybe twenty minutes a day or so. On one day, I try to exercise my biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders, and back. The next day, I do my thighs, abdominals, calves, inner thighs, and glutes. IContinue reading “More exercising news!”

Naughty and out of shape.

[Please scroll down past the asterisks if you wish to skip ahead to my exercising update!] I’ve been writing my series still, and I’m really enjoying it. I know that the traditional way to write a novel is to create conflict, but I prefer to create wish fulfillment. I like to write in a wayContinue reading “Naughty and out of shape.”
