Hi I don't know how I got to be how I am- all I know is I don't like where I am at . (Actually thats NOT totally true but it sounds better than "I F****D up"). I actually was doing this a couple of years ago on and off and was using a treadmill every night for about an hour and was doing OK until Fox cancelled Glen Beck and the motor burnt out of the treadmill..... Now I either walk or ride the bike and lift weights I am also trying to be more active around the house and even though at times ...
Hi I don't know how I got to be how I am- all I know is I don't like where I am at . (Actually thats NOT totally true but it sounds better than "I F****D up"). I actually was doing this a couple of years ago on and off and was using a treadmill every night for about an hour and was doing OK until Fox cancelled Glen Beck and the motor burnt out of the treadmill..... Now I either walk or ride the bike and lift weights I am also trying to be more active around the house and even though at times the scale doesn't show a difference, I CAN feel a difference. THAT'S WHAT TRULY COUNTS. I am really beginning to miss karatedo but I don't know if I can ever go back as I HATED the politics and favouritism (YES it exists). I know I could go train elsewhere but it would cost money- I think I put enough blood sweat and tears into the "other" umbrella organisation that I could get away with training for free (its just a question of putting up with the BS).
To get fitter. And not obsess too much about my weight (at least not for now).
I am currently attempting to complete the "One Hundred Push Ups Programme" (my max is about 30 at a time now which thankfully is more than the # of reps yet- you do 5 or 6 sets of reps 3x a week for this week (week 3) I am not looking forward to weeks 5 & 6 .
cycling ,some walking , weights, callisthenics. I would practise my karate ( I am a yondan) if someone else didn't want all the basement rumpus room when she moved back in. ( used to use the treadmill in there and watch the Glen Beck show for an hour)
Chris Alberta British North America (Canada) 40 something White Male. YEAH YEAH I know REAL GUYS don't love cats (too bad I grew up with a cat who lived to be 17)
I want to lose weight and get fit so I can sign up in the reserves and get my commission. I am an (underemployed) engineering technologist finished reading "we were soldiers and young" and a "Better War" (an almost biography of Gen Crieghton Abrams). I still obsess about my psychologically scarring Calculus courses at college. (years later I can remember formulas I couldn't recall when I needed THEM).
Thanks for stopping by, and checking out my pictures, But I have to correct you, Merlin in a Newfoundland/Great Pyrenees and now weight in at 150#, labs, to me are ankle biters. lol Yes Merlin is a big boy, just like his playmate Duke, the Great Pyrenees, they are the best of friends and when they play, you better get out of the way, cause you going to lose when you get hit with 300#'s of running dogs. lol Linda
Hi Chris - thanks for commenting on the fractals/mandelbrot photo (one I had swiped elsewhere off the Internet).
I found these movies on YouTube - the one has music from David Gilmore from Pink Floyd but is narrated by the late Arthur C Clarke and unfortunately is NOT captioned, so I'm kinda clueless. But it's not quite an hour long - might be long enough to run on your treadmill with it playing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk6Q U94xAb8
Dark Side of the Moon - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTEd 6-A03EQ
etc etc. or maybe you already know about these? Groovy, dude!!
=== OH here's the same Arther Clarke narration but broken up in 6 segments and Google-captioned (which is to say, not very well done at all...)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qB8m 85p7GsU Part one, and there are links to the others from here.
