Day 7. Weights only. (5.9788)

Day 7 of 7

...Day 7. Weights Only...

T

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.

Cast of Characters from The Protectors

Friday, September 16, 2011 ... Cast of Characters from The Protectors... M ost novels do not include a list of characters, although I have read some with them. Tolstoy readers would likely appreciate it. Plays do. Scripts don’t. Not sure what the thinking is, but I didn’t include it with my novel. I had a feeling I’d be shot if I had suggested it, but with the internet, I can provide such a list and here is the list of the major players in my first novel The Protectors (A Thriller).

Day 5—Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Cage

Monday, November 21st, 2016 No work on the novel on Day 4. Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments.
At 18:31 Office ... if I use Leänne instead of Leanne how will people react... Y esterday was Sunday and I took it off, plus I was dealing with some mental health issues. I know this story is something that is simply a matter of putting in the time to make it happen. I’m supposed to be working on it as much as I can but I haven’t been doing that. Two main reasons. It’s been a while since I’ve worked on a story. Then there’s the issues of my mental health. Things happen. I get down and it impacts on my writing. I might be using it as an excuse, but it’s clearly something I need to deal with. I have to find a schedule I can work with. Perhaps I need to put this first and cut out other things. Not sure but I will figure it out. A name for the hero came to me. For the moment going with Leanne or is it Leanna? Should be Le…

Writing a Novel–The Deep Blue Cage–Introduction

Thursday, March 9th, 2017 ... I fight my insecurities and doubts and I withdraw farther away from people and life ... I n November 2016 I started work on a new novel with the working title: The Deep Blue Cage. A few weeks after I started, I stopped. I was feeling too depressed about everything including the idea of writing a new novel. It happens to me at various times, with varying degrees, and it is debilitating. The ultimate issue was: Why bother? Why bother write another novel no one will read and no one will care about. I also found I was dreading the writing process more and more. It was painful to think about. I walked away and focused on other things. Or tried to. That didn’t work either. I felt trapped and unsure where I should head, what I should do. I even asked the big question, what the hell is life about anyway. There’s no one answer to this question despite the proclamations of some and because I believe I can think critically, can reason, I look at it from many a…
