Better Health Through Gaming - Week 4

Busy busy busy busy busy.

Work, practicing for a late-notice show with one band. Recording with another band (with a week less time than I was promised). Plus regular Christmas stuff and just trying to keep up with all the meetings I have to organize in addition to my normal job duties! Busy only barely starts to describe things.

So on that note; Monday night gaming is cancelled for this Monday and next. I just don't have the free after-work time to make it happen. Tonight I'll be doing drum cleanups and hopefully tracking bass parts if it all goes well. But you don't care about that, you're here to read about my pain and out-of-breathness.

Week 4 is finished and I've yet to miss a workout. The program thinks I did though. I made the mistake of starting a new program (9-Week on Easy) on the same day as finishing my first program. Since I marked Saturday as a workout day, it decided I'd missed that workout. I'll slip it in next Sunday I think, even though it's technically not correct.

Anyway, 4 weeks of exercise at 4 days per week is not a bad accomplishment. I just wish I were seeing more results. I know that I need to fix up my food timing and intake, so that'll be getting into the mix over the rest of December. It's not a matter of what you know, but what you do with that knowledge. So I guess it's up to me to keep things rolling.

Workouts: 4
Duration: 1 hour, 48 minutes
Calories Burned: 754
Average Heart Rate: 116 bpm
Max Heart Rate: 179 bpm
Distance: 1.44 miles

The average heart rate is still going down, so that's a good thing I think. I'm hoping for a decent weight loss before Christmas...time will tell there.
