Speaking of numbers?
Push-ups completed this week: 41
Sit-ups completed this week: 11
I started a morning exercise routine this week, and yes, I’m starting small. I figure on doing ten push-ups and five sit-ups per morning until that gets (relatively) easy, then move to some combination of more of those activities and another activity yet to be selected. The idea isn’t to turn this into some massive workout or use this as a weight-loss program; I just want to get my body back to a place where I can do things again without becoming winded way too quickly or just plain being too weak.
Unfortunately my abdominal muscles flat-out gave up after the second day of sit-ups. Wednesday’s attempt was accompanied by “OW OW OW.” Which scuttled my push-ups as well. Since then I’ve been starting with the push-ups since I know I can do those. My sit-up attempts yesterday and today were met with a big fat “NOT HAPPENING” from the abs.
I think they’re on strike.
There’s talk of putting in a workout space into the office expansion (yes, we’re expanding again). This might be a good thing, as I can’t afford or schedule a proper gym. (Nor would I want to deal with that environment, really.)
So. There’s me, trying to get a bit healthier. Yay?
