It's been a long time since I've posted. This is, in part, due to a large break in my exercise routine so I really had nothing of interest to say other than, "I suck; I haven't done anything; I feel like crap." Things of that nature. That is part of it, but then, a few weeks ago, I actually started exercising regularly again and feeling pretty good about it. Then not posting was due, in totality, to my laziness and lack of organization. At any rate. Here I am again. What prompted me to post at this point was a silly thing I did last night that was kind of fun so I thought I'd share. I've been running on the treadmill in the school gym at night around 8:00. I abandoned the mornings because it is so easy for me to not get out of bed. 8:00 is kind of late, but at least I have been consistent (so far). After I run, I write down the stats off of the treadmill - mileage, time and calories burned. I have 16 days of recorded data. I thought it'd be fun to make a graph to show myself my improvement. So I entered all of it into an excel spreadsheet and it was heartening to see my progress in a visual form. Even though my pace varies a lot from day to day, my chart shows a distinct downward trend (downward meaning it's taking me less time to run a mile). Now I think I'm going to figure out my line of best fit, figure out the function that goes along with it and then set time-specific goals based on that function. FUN! So yeah, that's what I'm up to right now. I'll, hopefully, keep you posted. I've also been doing sit-ups and push-ups (kneesie ones). I'm not sure how I'm going to get that into a compelling chart form, but, again, I'll keep you, hopefully, posted. How's that for comma crazy? I've heard that other countries, Canada in specific, make fun of Americans because we're comma crazy. hm.
