Summer Resolution…

I woke up this morning realizing what I had just done the night before —

I had actually used the treadmill,
for an hour,
on my own free will;

I was that bored.

So I've decided that this is a sign from my subconscious self that I need to do more exercise this summer.

This doesn't mean I want to necessarily become athletic or bodybuilding-ish, but just to stay fit.

I talked to some friends today, and after asking them how many calories I'm supposed to burn, they tell me that in order to be considered fit I'm supposed to burn as many calories as I take in.

I don't know where that came from!

I have no idea why I'm so skinny, then, because I definitely don't get that much exercise — so it must be my metabolism.

But if that dies out or slows down, I'll at least have regular exercise to depend on, if I make it a habit.

So I've decided to do that. This summer I've resolved to stay fit, eat somewhat-healthily and just overall be a little more athletic than I was all last year. I'm tired of being so out of shape compared to everyone else — not that I want to become the next football player or weightlifter. I just want to stay in good enough shape that I'm in the "healthy fitness zone" in all categories and exercises. I guess I just don't want to be considered unathletic. That's a big thing in society these days, being fit — it seems now a days you either are or aren't. There isn’t much in-between gray area. And I want to be on the good side of the spectrum.

    lols good luck with that

    beat you to it, though.

    during the last two days, i jogged 5 miles, did 180 sit-ups, and lifted at least 2000 lbs. (all together, i mean. like one 5 lb lift and one 10 lb lift is 15lb.)

    hope you can come swimming sometime…
