One of which is in workout, weight lifting, and exercise in general.
Exercise, apart from Aikido have been one of the few blessings in my life. I don’t how to describe it, but one of the few “zen” times in my life where I can power up, power down, and take down the competition at my own leisure. I will admit though that I have been slacking…Yes, yes I’ve been slacking on my exercise regime.
Speaking of which, what is my regime? In January I created this:
- 300 pushups/week (dive-bomb pushups whenever permitted)
- 300 tricep exercises/week (tricep pushups)
- 1 bootcamp /week for 1 hour – this includes 1.5 miles + various leg, arm, and core exercises.
- Going to the gym 2-3 times/week for 1 – 2 hours/time. Various leg, arm, cardio, and core exercises (same type of exercises).
Now it’s April and #1, 2, and 4 have disappeared for the most part. Why you ask? Simple: whenever I workout I get terribly hungry afterward and therefore I need to get food. Which also means that I have to spend money on food.
Money I don’t have.
I don’t know if this is just an excuse, but as far as appetites are concerned, I eat just as much as my mom, dad, and sister put together when I was doing this regime, that’s a lot of money that I have to scrape together on my meager salary.
So my excuse for not exercising? I don’t have (enough) money for the food that I need to in order to build the appropriate livestyle of building muscle and living healthy. At the moment I’m content with my weekly 1 hour bootcamp and the occasional gym session.
It sucks, but that’s what I’m doing in the exercise department. Besides, I need to concentrate on something more important at the moment: My professional life.
