Bikinjo – 4/12

Fri. 4/12 – Since last post I have been maintaining food and water intake as prev. reported, but not exercising (probably could have — impeded by my attitude or frame of mind, I guess.)

Left groin discomfort min. to none now — stationary bike seat lowered one more notch.

Cont. to indulge sev. hr. lounging after awakening reasonable a.m. hour following retiring 8 hrs. earlier & sleeping well.  Prefer to believe I need and deserve the rest, but may be avoiding an unwanted task.

Food: Blinner only today: Bacon, cheese, tomato, avocado omlette, slice avocado bread, lge serving fresh mixed fruit, thick slice zuccini bread.    Later: 2 small glazed almond scones.  Will likely have dish of “light” butter pecan ice cream later & unbuttered popcorn even later.  Water & lemon w/meal(s) now instead of decaf coffee.

Exer: Warmup stretching, 5 lb. barbell lifting to shoulder height x5; 10 mins. sta. biking; pulse stead at 70bpm pre and post exercise.

Goal: just to keep exercising 3 to 5 to 7 times weekly.; increase bike time and number of barbell lifts.

  1. Well done, BikinJo! Obviously you managed to find the right place to post and to comment.
    Welcome back to exercise.

  2. The exercise goals are great, Jo. I wish I could be bothered eating as well as you do.

    I find that it helps my attitude if I try to brainwash myself about how good I feel post exercise. I really do feel good and I keep telling myself that if I waver about getting up early.

    barbell action very impressive, jo.

    good luck with the goal of increasing regular number of excercise times. inspirational too as i’ve fallen off good intentions.

    Have been AWOL for quite a while for reasons I’ve written quite enough about on my blog. Seems my exercise pgm is the first to go (probably should be the last) when I get a lot on my plate — the humor of that cliche’ does not escape me though it was unintentional. (I realize I have begun eating ice cream more frequently during this period.)

    I temporarily (maybe permanently) retired my stationary bike (due to certain bike features,) but especially after reading at another such biker’s blog of a potential problem which based on other issues, I knew I would be at high risk for developing. I then started investigating and thought I’d buy a stationary recumbent bike since last here, but suddenly evil spirits invaded my life. Lots of malfunctioning appliances and other calamities going on. Am allowing all to resolve, then will resume my bike search. Meanwhile, will try to keep up weekly with a summary of my necessarily newly revised exercise efforts.

    Warmup exercises — can still do these, but haven’t been, so will resume daily.

    Barbell lifting — 5 lbs ea. — same as above.

    Water — Inc. regular intake i.e. order only water w/lemon instead of other beverages whenever I eat out (eating out a lot lately.)

    Diet — one to two meals daily, but have maintained appropriate portions, including veggies and no desserts. May need to resume brkfast & oatmeal with more fresh fruit. May not want to give up the newly acquired habit of evening ice cream.

    Walking — may add this to my regimen with bike presently retired, but summer heat could be an issue.

    Sleep — pattern is liveably consistent, but comfortably variable for my activities, so no longer a focus for adjustment — getting adequate sleep nightly.
