A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

Mid-life Crisis or Needed change part 2

As I promised in my post I would provide updates on Saturday.

I didn’t make it to actually work out at the gym this week, due to a stuffy nose. However I quit using the elevator when going up 4 floors or down 5 floors, so I definitely got in my Stairmaster work this past week. Monday a friend and I went for a 15km power walk, which is longer than what I will be running. Tuesday and Thursday were days for stretches, a bit of weightlifting. Wednesday and Friday were mainly filled with getting life’s chores out of the way, however I did do about a 5km walk each evening. So I can’t give you much in the way of stats, except to say I am now at 92kg. I thought I had done better than this as my waist lost about 3 cm this week, but then I remembered muscle has a higher density more than fat. This evening will be another power walk, and Sunday my day of rest. Monday back to the treadmill and stair climber.
