the one about exercise and diet making a difference...
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
I mentioned that I track everything, right? like more than is tracked here. I track what I read and my commute time -- a total quantified self.
Well, in June, I did 1000 pushups. I also completed more than 1000 fitness minutes.
I also lost a lot of weight. Sitting now at 179, a weight I haven't seen since I graduated college.
And I think it has to do with my intensity and my dedication to this whole exercise routine. And mixing it up. Kettlebells, elliptical, treadmill, running outdoors, lifting, walking with the family, and a whole series of other fun things.
And. my daughter just learned to ride her bike. Which means we can go take leisurely rides around the neighborhood now too. I mean, really, could this be any better?
Working out is not much of a chore for me, it's finding the time, but with more fresh fruits and vegetables, and with more exercise, I'm starting to see a significant change. I'm feeling good. I'm feeling really good.
And that has to do with a lot of things. Hard work, yes, but also a shift in mindset. And being surrounded by better things, and doing myself good.
I like doing myself good.
