Ok, what do I mean by sustainable?
  • Being able to work out everyday
  • A routine that helps me improve in all components of physical fitness (aerobic, muscular, flexibility and balance)


Why is it pathetic?
Well, I've never been physically fit... Even though I have improved lately.

Day 1

Weight: 127.4 lbs
Did some isometric exercises this morning, not enough time to do anything else before going to work...

Man! Are we ever hard on ourselves!!!!!

Hey Xar, there is NOTHING pathetic about moving in the right direction. I have very little patience myself but we all have to crawl before we walk before we run.

Stay with it.......



Peace......

Thanks for your encouragements Phoenix...

So, evening workout:
I couldn't weight myself tonight (baby sleeping and all), did some yoga and pilates, no cardio workout today as I had a business lunch and no time to do it tonight.

Weight this morning (after breakfast): 130.2 lbs

Did some ball exercises, and the usual morning isometric exercises.

Mid-day update: got out of my cubicle, walked about 1 mile in 15 minutes, going around the duck pond and back to my cube.

Evening update: jogged 2 miles in about 30 minutes, did 2 sets of 10 leg lifts, each one held during 5 seconds.

2 series of 10 x leg raises holding each for 5 seconds
10 x chest press at 100 lbs
10 x pull down at 80 lbs
40 crunches on a 45 degree inclined bench
