"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"

My daily follies of commuting on the Long Island Expressway, plus gym reports

Progress in fits and starts My gym progress during this period has not been entirely satisfactory, but not unsatisfactory either. One slight obstacles is that my main job has gotten much busier than in the past. Instead of working from 7am to around 2pm with a couple of breaks, it’s been more like 7 to […]

Barely found time This was one tough week at my main job. It was a tough work cycle, which is odd in a way because it was the second week of the 2-week cycle and usually the second week is easier. Not now, and I’m actually not sure why.  I was able to make it […]

Nothing record-setting in Saturday’s gym work. I did back stuff, starting with cable pulldowns, 5 x 8 x 150. Not too bad, though there is something about that exercise that just doesn’t float my boat, so to speak. It may be time to move onto something else. I also did SLDL’s, 3 x 8 x […]

Finally doing the auxiliary work Thursday marked the end of the workweek at my main job and it was even tougher than the first three days had been. Ugh. I have one more week of this brutal work cycle to go, but it should be a bit more manageable as I will be at worksites […]

Making (slow) progress Both of these were tough days at my main job, I’m very glad I wasn’t scheduled at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. Seriously, I don’t know how I would have managed. I didn’t go to the gym on Tuesday, I definitely needed a day off after Monday’s leg work, which left me […]

Sobering numbers It was a moderately difficult day at my main job, with the start of a new 2-week work cycle, but with some people having the day off for Martin Luther King Day traffic was noticeably lighter than usual. Nice, but of course that won’t last. After a very long time away from them I actually […]

Not a bad gym session on Saturday. After doing various and sundry other things during the day I went to the gym about 7pm and did back work. As part of my new focus I’m trying to move away from machines and use free weights whenever possible. Not a 100% change, but a different emphasis. […]

Regression Today was sort of a good news/bad news sort of day. The good news is that I finally made it back to the gym, taking advantage of my day off to go fairly early in the afternoon. Earlier in the day I actually watched some weight training videos to give myself some motivation. Hope […]

No excuses As you might have guessed from the consolidated entry, I did not go to the gym at all during this stretch. I have no excuse whatsoever for my inaction: my main job was no different from usual, I wasn’t scheduled at all at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, the weather was mostly cold […]

Saturday was one of those days when I had no excuse not to go to the gym but nonetheless ended up not going. Bad, I know. Why I didn’t go is attributable, at least in retrospect, to the multitude of errands I had to do during the day, and in the evening to my lack […]
