Cardio and weights (6.0191)

...a cardio day with weights...

I

've said it before but my exercise routine changes and evolves as I learn new things, discover news things or simply get too used to a particular weight amount. Today it was about consciously doing stomach crunches in three different motions instead of simply back and forth through the middle. The first set is to the right to work the obliques. The second set is to the middle to work the abdominals. The third set is to the left to work the obliques. When I say "work" I mean a more concentration of effort on those muscles. All those muscles are working during a stomach, just some more than others. We'll see how that goes.

I'm finding it too easy to do stomach crunches and I'm wondering what is next. I keep doing more reps but there comes a point where you can't do anymore reps. We shall see.

In talking with someone at the gym today I was told I was to eat protein with every meal. I don't do that. Apparently if I don't, my body consumes some of the protein stored in my muscles. Ugh me. I was also told diet pop isn't a good for weight loss. The reason (and it's absurd): Chemicals. Have you ever seen anyone who isn't fat drinking diet pop?, she asked me. I'm not the person to ask such questions, but even if it were true, it doesn't support her claim.

Stomach Crunches on Swiss Ball: 40 reps x 9 sets with 3KG medicine ball (Right/Left/Centre).

Bicep Curls on Swiss Ball: 9kg x 20 reps x 9 sets.

Chest Press on Swiss Ball: 9kg x 30 reps x 9 sets.

No Leg Lunges.

No Squats

Lots of stretching as usual. I've definitely gotten into the habit of stretching and it makes a difference.

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).

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 an…
