I have fallen off the bandwagon since some time. Not completely. Have been swimming instead of cycling. Would start updating my activities regularly here.
@SDP.
Thank you for the encouragement. Been motivated by your Postings on your thread. However, not been able to do more than just exercise. Reading is on the cards, hopefully will start soon. Core work , next stop !
Cheers.

Wow. Came across the thread at the right time. Ive been gradually adding weights and about to touch 100. But decided against it and started to work out couple of days back. Nothing strenious but just brisk walking for 45 minutes. Feeling lighter already.

My first target is to continue the workout for another 15 days to reach the most difficult milestone of 21 days. Then on should be a cake walk with your regular motivation.

Currently rereading 'The power of your subconcious mind' to coincide with my workout and get set mentally.

Keep the updates coming. Looking forward to reclaiming my life ASAP.

Cheers.

Here's my update for the last month,

1. Walked 4 to 5 kms a day for atleast 20 days.

2. Reading - Pretty much nothing. Need to restart.

3. Made a point to frequently walk around and not sit for ling periods.

4. Most important - Started to eat correct lots of fruits and vegetables. Energy levels have gone up already and feeling lighter. Dropped 3 kgs in a month.

Now on will do weekly updates. Thanks again for the thread.

UPDATE - WEEK 10.
1. Brisk Walk - Another bad week. Hardly any mileage covered. Started the week by missing the Monday walk. Did manage 20 kms on Tue and Wed. Did another 5 kms each on Thu and Fri mornings. Managed another 5 km on Sat evening out of sheer frustration at missing out on the other days. Quite a poor show this week. Hope the next week improves.
2. Weight Training - Did mild weight training with dumbbells and rod on three evenings.
3. Reading - Continuing with Scion of Ishvaku by Amish. About to finish.
4. Reclaim activity. Nil this week.
5. Fun Activity - Started to replay Call of Duty : Advanced Warfare, with advanced player mode
Watched Wayward Pines TV series. Finished the first season.
Started watching another TV series. Dark Matter. Interesting.

Princey ... good going!

I am sticking to my cycle-to-swimming-pool - 1 Hr Swim - Ride back home routine. Shoulders and pecs are definitely firmer than 3 months back.

Week 12.
Brisk Walk - Missed out four days owing to WORK. Backbreaking, frustrating and long hour-ed. Could manage only one days worth of walk on Wed.
Weight Training - Nil.
Reading - Completed the book For Valour by Andy Mcnab. Gets a big thumbs up from my side. Racy, fast paced thriller.
That's all I could manage apart from multi - city travel this week.
Hope to do better next week
