Day 12. Weights Day (5.9835)

Day 12 of 12

...Trying new exercise gives new feelings to muscles....


o cardio today. Weights only, but the leg lunges and squats are a bit of cardio. It gets the blood pumping.

Someone suggested I should do leg squats. Similar to leg lunges, but with a different motion. I don't use any weights. Not at the moment. So I did six sets with 10 reps. I can feel it and I'm sure I'll feel it even more tomorrow morning. I imagine my legs and butt will feel a bit sore and stiff and well I've been there before with leg lunges. Same deal. Once I get to the third workout with them, it won't be an issue.

Bicep Curls: 7kg x 25 reps x 3 sets (One 7kg dumbbell for each hand)

Tricep Presses: 14kg x 25 reps x 3 sets.

Stomach Crunches: 25 reps x 6 sets

Leg Lunges: 10 reps x 6 sets - Left/Right.

Squats: 10 reps x 6 sets. Yep, I can feel it.

Long-term average is now 5.9835. 18 more days to go. I've done 12 in a row so far.

Day 109: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Sunday, March 6, 2017 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments.
At 18:47 Office ... I barely remembered anything about this story... H as it really been three months? I guess it has. I put it out of my mind [so much so] that I barely remembered anything about this story. Not even the title. [Unreal!!!!!!] I had the general premise and an ending—enough I thought for a novel. What I lacked was a determination and desire to want to write it. Why bother… I wasn’t enjoying the process and I had no reason to believe the result wouldn’t be anything more than what’s gone before—nothing.

A homonym.
FAIRY—A fairy tale. A fairy godmother. Fairy—not a long, long way to run.
FERRY—A boat or ship to transport drunken Swedes back home from Copenhagen. It’s the Danish beer.

Day 2: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Friday, November 18th, 2016 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments. ... There’s also poetic justice for this crew for what they did to the women they kept.... I t’s still Friday to me. [Writing early Saturday morning.] I wasn’t in bed until 6h and up at 14h. Then lots of errands. Lots of walking. Felt tired earlier—something different. I haven’t spent much time thinking about this story. I seemed to have put my mind into another lane. Not what I want. I was thinking too much about my future as a successful writer. Not simply being a writer, but a successful writer. One that makes a good living off or from it. That’s a better goal. So what to say about this story. No title. Oh. I did decide on something. She can’t die. Too much of a downer. That would seem to rule out a revenge aspect by the husband. Maybe she does it. These guys [the baddies] have to get it in the end. I was thinking about how she wants to sink the s…
