Above is the best abs workout app I’ve found so far. Yeah, it has a girl in the picture but it’s not for girls only. This app is better and stands out because, through the counting and beeps, it doesn’t let you cheat.
For quite a long time (years) I’ve been doing morning exercises., i search for and download a good workout app, run through it start to finish, uninstall and repeat. This one is the best ever so far.
I have very few “normal evenings” between now and the beginning of March. Visitors and recording events filling the weekends and some weeks.. I’ll be pretty much running nonstop for a while.
I’m not complaining, I’m glad to be busy, don’t get me wrong, but I didn’t sleep very well last night I’d like to be getting off on a better foot.
I doubt lack of sleep will affect me too bad today I’ve been swimming the half mile almost every day and pretty strenuous exercise in the morning. I was planning on taking it easy in that regard today.
I slept pretty good last night, but I’m tired right now.. I took it easy on my morning exercise this morning. I have a body full of sore muscles, and I plan on swimming at lunch. I won’t mention yesterday’s chin-ups.
After work I have a pickleball lesson. From what I understand pickleball is exactly like ping Pong except you’re standing on the table. Seriously, it looks like tennis.
Saturday was an 800 Meter Sea Swim. I did’t swim well, I went way off course, but it was still good. Saturday evening, I went to the movies and sau A Man Called Otto. Loved it. Complimented the book.
Sunday saw me go to an early morning yoga class, which left me feeling great, followec by coffee on the beach at the Westin and then a scuba dive.
I planned on house cleaning and yaard work after that but took a nap and did very little cleaning. I went to bed early and don’t think I woke up once all night, except 4 minutes before the alarm, and I went right back to sleep.
And now it’s back to work, and I’m actually looking forward to it.
My meditation this morning included “what would you do today if you had one week to live?” I would do the same thing I’m doing. I’d go to work, then the beach for lunch. (Maybe I wouldn’t go to work, just the beach). As far as dying in a week? I really don’t feel like I’d care. I have a great life, i can see it’s better than most peoples. I wouldn’t trade places with anybody, but I’ve been around long enough for me. On a side note, I’d rather die fast than decay slowly.
The meditation said that any breath could be our last. At the time, i was standing with my feet wide apart, trying to get my head to touch the floor. (Only about two feet to go!) I could easily fall and break my neck. Any breath COULD be our last. But oh well, can’t worry about it.
Seems like a morbid post this morning, but it isn’t really.. Have a fun day!
SPOILER ALERT! Reading further might reduce the pleasure gained, if you plan on reading this book.
I’m reading a book called Klara And The Sun. I like it quite a lot. It’s about an AF, artificial friend, a robot, who gets energy from the sun.
i find it very enjoyable. Klara is purchased for a young girl who has some kind of sickness. I am about 60% through the book.
At the beginning of the book, Klara was in the store, and I didn’t know what she was, what AF stood for or anything. It has been a pleasant read from the beginning, figuring out what is going on has been, for me, one of the main pleasures. Hence the spoiler alert. Worth a read.
You know I take yoga, right? I realized I feel shame about yoga. I was avoiding saying I was went. To me, it’s not viewed as a very tough, manly thing to do. It was recommended that I take yoga by my counselor as strongly as a counselor can recommend, which really isn’t very forceful, but I was willing to do anything to feel better and I have to admit yoga makes me feel better and is excellent excellent exercise. (Depending on the class).
Friday afternoon, I took half the day off work, mowed my yard. I was super glad to get that out of the way.! Friday night, went to the 1 year anniversary dinner of One Heart. It was great! Best time and company I’ve had in years.
Saturday, i took my tennant who was renting the downstairs apartment to the airport and began cleaning up for the next renter. Wanna come visit? Now is the time!
also Saturday, at about 13:16:40 hours, I passed the milestone of one billion seconds clean and sober. That’s about 31 years 8 months.
Sunday, nobody was diving, so I signed up for a 7AM class. I thought it would be crowded, but it was nobody but me and the instructor, and I again enjoyed wonderful company along with quite a workout. In the future, I figure I can make that 0700 class and still make it to a 0900 shore dive…. Beats trying to make a noon class after the dive and missing lunch with the dive crew…
I needed to tidy up a little around the house, and around noon Sunday, decided I needed some bookends. So, on a whim, I made some. More like a mini shelf, really. The ends can slide along the bottom board, making it adjustable.
I gotta say, for less than an hours work, it came out pretty good. I’ve had this old scrap piece of hardwood for years and years and it was perfect for this project. I could have spent infinitely more time on it and made it all fancy, but I got it working and left it there, I like it. It’s rude and crude, just like me.
Sunday, later in the afternoon, I went to a birthday party where there was entirely too much food.
