Saturday post

Last night I was at the gym to do my new excercising routine through for real. I do have to adjust couple weights up! Amazing! Upper-body weights are just right: I just barely finished the routine with all the repeats and despite that, my body isn’t too sore. Of course you should have bit sore body after excercising, but I was afraid that the new beginning would really make my body scream. I was just abotu to go to the gym again tonight, but though I’d take it easy and go there tomorrow morning. It’s good to take the start calmly so I won’t kill the enthusiasm because I over did it all..

When we rode back home with out bicycles, my arms were so loose and exhausted that it felt funny on bike, I had to concentrate to stay on straight line. That’s just when I know I did enough and not too little and not too much/hard. Kewl.

Oh, and I’m not going to spend money on new bicycle at the moment. Even though there’s sale on 2006 modes, I still have great bike. It’s only 2 years old and I haven’t used it much. I just need to do some adjusting and it’s all good. Of course the front wheel is bit croocked after some one tried to steal it, but it’s not too bad. I can spot it, but nobody has felt anything weird while riding the bike. I will be ready to replace it, but I’d like to get another flat black/matte wheel to replace the old one. Yes, it’s cool with those black wheels and shiny polished wires. lol I know, but I do like to have bike that looks cool to me and works fine on top of that! 😉

It’s beautifull outside: sun shining, warm, summer at it’s best. I’ve got 2 weeks left at this office and then it’s 2 weeks of freetime before studies begin. I KNOW it’s going to snow those two weeks I’m off, at least it’s raining and cold..

Gym Talk and some

Last night I was at the gym to go through my training routine with the personal-trainer. I have to say that she had done good job! Of vourse we did adjust the weights and all for the beginning, the start level. It’s nice, full-body routine for starters, to get my body receiving (nerves open, so to speak) and to get me going. Later we’ll do whole new routines, one for upper and one for lower body only, you know the drill if you’ve been training.

They have Polar Matrix machines in there, the bike, cross-trainer, rowing bench and all those. I think they’re cool, since if you have Polar heart-rate meter (they call it “Athletics’ Wrist Computer”..), the machines are compatible and you get your rate and all the info from your gadget to the Polar Matrix machine. Isn’t that cool or what? For most of the weight training I will use free-weights or semi-machines. I do hate working-out with most of the machines, so it’s great they have choice at the gym.

I did go through a full training last night and surprisingly my body isn’t that sore. Of course I do feel there’s something going on in the muscles, but it’s not pain. Kewl. Tonight I’m going to go for a warm-up and heart-rate training with the Polaris machines. In my routine it’s ok to do that every-day, but for now only every second day is for training.

I am excited about this, more than ever before. I have been training when I was younger, but this time it feels lot more “my thing” than ever before and I hope I can get a good start to keep it feeling like that. ..and I hope I never get too cray about it.. I don’t want to end up eating from bright colored paper bags and spending 20min in solarium every day, before training. 😉

And then something else, but still connected to this new life of the Home-Athlete D-Ma: I did order a iPod.. Yes, I have been old skool and using Sony’s portable MD player (until young Klementina ate the headphones..), but I decided it was time to get smaller gadget with more capacity.. So I went for iPod Nano 2Gb, black of course. It’s small, but not too small, my car supports iPod and it looks cool. And it was a bargain, only 159e when it’s around 200e in most places. Comes with headphones, neck band and a.. SOCK! yes, iPod sock! lol 2Gb is enough to store 4-5 different playlists for training and songs for everyday life. 😉 On top of this I heard someone thinking about new bicycle, but have to see how it goes. Even though 2006 models are in sale right now, for example Kona Kula Deluxe is -30% and GT I-Drive 5 is also -35%, I might not spend my money on them. THey’re great bikes for my needs, maybe even better than I really need. I also have great Crescent bike at home even thoguh it’s not just what I want. I bought it on sale too. In fact it was last bike of it’s kind in the shop and I got -60% from the list price.. Yes, it was same price range at the day as the Kona and GT I mentioned earlier..

Excercicing is expensive, as you can see. On top of all this I had to get new gym-towel, water bottle, shirt and shorts. I do have one set, but it’s better to have a spare if I want to go training when they’re in washing machine! lol

24 and sweat

Last night I finally got the 1st season of 24 done. I’ve never seen it before, only couple episodes here and there, but back then I decided it’s no use to start watching from the middle and thought I’d check it out later. Even though I knew Nina Meyers was going to kill Teri Bauer eventually, it was such a shock when it happened in the end. I mean, she was so cool through out the season until the end.. Anyway, I loved the season and now I’m goin gto get the 2nd season on dvd and spend quality time watching it!

I’m hoping that they 24 until AT LEAST 7th seasno, so I would have a 24 week, literally, some time in future.. One season per day! Insane, but the right way.. lol We used to have Star Trek Movie Weekend. That means watching every single ST movie in a row. It was easy when we were kids with the bunch of friends ,but now there’s so many movies it’s getting painfull. Thank good for pepperoni pizza and beer, they get me through it..

Now that I got the hdd-recorder with large hdd, I’ve been able to record all the shows I missed while watching 24 and all the ones I miss usually anyway but would like to watch. It’s insane, I’ve got hours and hours of stuff recorded and I think I’m not going to watch most of it. I though that I wouldn’t get into that, but apparently it happens to even best of us. 😉 I will clean the drive when I get home and save only the ones I REALLY like.

Yesterday afternoon I went to see the personal trainer and did a profile for me and this evening I’m going to the gym to see the routine she made for me based on the profile. I can’t wait it since we decided to make two routines for me, one is 1 hour set and another is hour and half. Longer for the days when I feel like it or have more time and the shorter for regular use. The plan is not to lose wight but to convert fat to musscle. Of course I don’t mind losing some weight, but I don’t mind gaining weight if it’s the right kind of tissue. lol Have to see how it goes. I’ve got 3 months to get to step 2 so we can plan new routine for me based on the achievements and I hope I can reach my goal I have for this period.

People are weird. For example one guy found me with search “show me the asshole”. I don’t know which is more weird, the stuff people are searching or the fact that search engine or two point them to my blog!!!

Here’s few more interesting search phrases, I have “highlighted” the really weird ones:

conan o’brien canine pets 2
what dobermann eat 2
doberman blog 1
black sabbath inspirations 1
bad customer service 1
things at home to masturbate with 1

I’m sorry I don’t have Juliet Anderson nude pics and I’m NOT going to blog about “best gadgets at home for masturbation”!!
