  • Does stuffing your face with dumplings count as exercise? 

    Because that was what I did yesterday, and I think I'm in line for an Olympic gold medal. 


  • Dinner tonight was a celebration for my fiance's daughter acquiring her driver's license, thus... the meal was special... in that way that comfort food can be.  Plus, cupcakes and sherbert ice cream.  In short... a fattening day.
  • Sat in front of my computer all day and nearly fell asleep. Had dinner with my wife. I need to get back on the road.
  • Tomorrow's her birthday, too. I hate missing three days straight... but it happens, and it ain't the end of the world.
  • Uh, I didn't do the exercise for the last couple of days...  the new day job, with the kids and the driving, etc. has really been taking it out of me.  And I meant to cycle out to the caricature gig last night, but I got delayed and had to take the car... ugh.  Today I'm going to try to remember to bring my roller blades with me, so I can go for a half hour or 45 mins on my break between shifts.  Also, hopefully I'll have something to post in the other "work" thread, too.  This morning, hot cereal again, and coffee and I think a fired egg sandwich for lunch.
  • This is sounding more and more like the 'daily excuses' thread than the daily workout thread...
  • i did not workout today. Gassy. 
  • Drove to work today, but did an hour of cardio on machines (half hour eliptical/half hour treadmill) afterwards.
  • Went to the gym. Lifted heavy metal things.
  • Went to the gym. Lifted heavier things than Franks.
  • I'm pretty sure that, whatever way you interpret that statement, it's true. 
  • I'm lucky. I have inherited a great metabolism from my father. I'm 5'10" and I weigh 72kg--about 158 lbs.

    But I'm not exactly a slob, either. I was always the smallest and skinniest kid in my class and I've worked for 16 years to get up to this weight--although it's been at the cost of cardio fitness. 
    That was me, pre-30. I'm about the same height (and it sounds like build) as you, and floated around 145lbs for most of my 20s, and only after a heavy gym routine, enhanced by creatine supplements and 1000-calorie shakes did I get up to 155.

    About 3-1/2 years ago, I somehow -- as a vegetarian and even a vegan for a period, mind you -- ballooned up to 185lbs, with my cholesterol off the charts and a fatty liver to boot. So I had to change my diet, get back on an exercise routine, and for about 3 months, take cholesterol reducers.

    Now, at 35, I hover around 155-160lbs and my cholesterol is normal without medication. I watch what I eat enough so that when I splurge on pizza or beer, it doesn't throw me off too much. I typically run at least 3-5 miles per run three days a week (unless I'm training for a race, as I'm about to start again, which means a lot more distance) and do weight training two days.

    My entire day, otherwise, is spent at a desk or in front of a computer, like 15 hours during the workweek, easily, so it's amazing I'm in as good of shape as I am right now. I only have my metabolism to thank for that. I'm probably going to start weekly yoga as well soon, and I'm considering doing P90X just to challenge myself ... but not until after the San Diego Rock n Roll (half) Marathon in June.

    My girlfriend -- who hates exercise of any kind, but is probably willing to do the yoga with me -- always wonders why I don't get as tired as her at night, especially considering I wake up hours earlier than her most days. As many have noted here, even minimal exercise gives you quite the energy boost, and it helps that I fuel myself with decent (but small) meals all day, whereas she considers coffee "breakfast" and rarely eats more than one "meal" a day.
  • This is sounding more and more like the 'daily excuses' thread than the daily workout thread...
    I confess today is just that... another excuse.
    But I like that it's at least documented on this thread.  It's just one more straw for my camel.
  • @JasonFranks @Jimmie_Robinson the first step to solving a problem is admitting there is one.
  • I'm a believer in the sort of moderation that allows you to miss from time to time, but after three days of missing, I"m getting buggy to get back. The BIG picture is your life. Comics are a part of that. As is proper exercise and diet. As are your relationships with loved ones. And the larger society.

    Its OK to miss. Its not ok to allow that to keep you from going back. Tomorrow is another day.
  • Absolutely--not only is it okay to skip a workout from time to time, it's okay to reward yourself every now and again, too.

    For me, if I go too long without a good workout, or too many days in a row subsisting on shitty food, I feel bad. 

    When I let my fitness wane I don't notice it fading, but once I start on the path to getting it back it's really noticeable how much better I feel to be even slightly fitter.
  • Well, I'm gonna get some exercise right now... I'm going to bed... with my fiance.

    We're not sleeping.
  • Now there's the big picture in focus.

    Went to the gym. Lifted heavier things than Franks.
    I don't know... I hear Franks is pretty heavy. ;)

    I jogged in circles for 30 minutes. The pool was occupied by senior women getting their aquabounce on.

    I have always argued that any diet or exercise program or vow of chastity or whatever which doesn't give you the freedom to ignore it from time to time, is one that will fail.  If you never have to "cheat", you'll never have an excuse to be released from your commitment.  As quoth the sage: "Moderation in all things... including moderation."
  • This morning was an apple and coffee - then at 10 AM another coffee and a bowl of cereal. And that'll likely be it, save for a banana for a mid afternoon snack until 7 or 8 tonight.  This afternoon I'm going to try to throw a basketball or football around with the kids in the afterschool program.  Although we are also building a home-made foosball table, too, so we will be doing our construction for the first part of the program. (Unfortunately, wielding a cordless drill probably doesn't count as "exercise"!)

    This morning:
    Exercise bike for 20 minutes.  Moderate speed and tension.  Just enough to break into a dripping sweat.
    1 Egg and rice mixture with shredded cheese.  Coffee mug of mango tea.

    Now I'm jumping right on the art work (Bomb Queen pencils) while I have energy in my veins.

    It's 9:30 AM

    EDIT:
    12 noon - a slice of bread with a slice of pepper jack cheese and coffee.
  • @ShawnRichison maybe I missed something earlier in the thread, but ... is there a reason for that? It's really bad to under-eat all day and then have a big meal at night ...
  • Went for a run this morning. Ended up going 4-1/2 miles without realizing it. I've been off-track for a while, so my time is about 11 mins/mi. Need to get that down to 10 or less for this race in June.
  • Drove to work again, but did an hour of upper body, core and legs afterwards.
  • Managed 20 minutes on the track, 10 minutes in the pool.
  • tweaked a muscle last night sleeping poorly so the upper body workout was careful, but I managed 400 calories in just over half an hour on the elliptical, and pushed the resistance up to 15 for the last ten minutes, so that part was a tough workout and now I'm bushed. Thus no comics work tonight, but I have the weekend before me, so there'll be some drawing and writing done.
  • I don't know... I hear Franks is pretty heavy. 
    Jordan could use me for dumbell curls and I wouldn't even have to put down my laptop.
  • Oh, yeah. I hit the dojo again. The dojo hit me back a few times, so, all up it was a decent workout.
  • Saw this on the web, thought of this thread because motivation:image

  • Between a stroll along the lake, followed by a bicycle ride around it, I managed over 10K "steps" on my pedo-meter today, a new record and twice my daily requirement.  Apparently the device registers walking as "aerobic" activity, but not pedaling.  But I know better.

    The extra exercise is good, because the Wayward Boys and I will be spending tonight playing the Adaptation Travesty drinking game with Syfy's Neverland prequel.  Every time they blatantly ignore a Known Fact about the Peter Pan mythos, or do something groan-inducing (the trailer has Hook actually saying "take my hand, Peter"), we'll take a drink.  Could be a rough night.
