Day 7. Weights only. (5.9788)

Day 7 of 7

...Day 7. Weights Only...


he seventh day in a row. My average is now 5.9788--almost 5.98. 23 days until I reach 6.00. One week down, just over three more to go. I have no doubts I can do it.

Today was a weights day and I decided to forgo any cardio. In the last three years my weights days always included cardio to warm-up, but in the last month there have been a handful of days when I haven't followed that routine. Not sure what is the best workout. One day a week without cardio doesn't sound like a bad thing.

Bicep Curls: 7kg x 25 reps x 3 sets

Tricep Presses: 14kg x 25 reps x 3 sets. Up from 9kg. I hadn't done the exercise in a few weeks so I went with a lower weight to avoid injury.

Stomach Crunches: 25 reps x 6 sets

Leg Lunges: 10 reps x 6 sets - Left/Right. I increased the number of sets. Until my injury in July I was doing lots and lots of leg lunges, but stopped because I had to let my feet heal. In the last couple of weeks I have slowly worked leg lunges back into my routine. Just a few reps the first time and bit by bit adding more reps and more sets. My legs and feet feel find.

Plus lots of stretching.

Tomorrow is a swim day--my day off as I like to think of it.

I've done weights three times this week. I think that's sufficient for my needs. I'm not trying to bulk up, simply tone muscles. Hopefully, a lean, toned look.

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.

Day 2: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

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…
