    Cool, I guess I'm a mesomorph.

    From this test:

    What is Your Body Type?
    Results
    Categories

    Ectomorph-----30%
    Endomorph-----40%
    Mesomorph-----80%

    The category with the highest percentage is the answer to which body type you possess. Endomorph, Ectomorph or Mesomorph?

    The answer depends on how you perceived the questions and how you answered them. Use it as a guide.

    While the difference between ectomorphs and endomorphs are quite clear, lines are blurred with some mesomorphs. Poor diets can make mesomorphs think they are endomorph. The main difference between endo and mesomorph is

    the way fat tends to distribute in the body – mesomorphs tend to put more fat on one part and less on other parts.
    the ease in which mesomorphs build muscle definition – this is only evident when you exercise.
    the sensitivity to dietary carbohydrate — endomorphs responds extremely well to low carb diets, and put on quickly when carbs are re-introduced into the diet. This is not so obvious with mesomorphs.
    I had been wondering this for a while, but this all makes sense. I always thought I gained and lost weight on pretty much every part of my body, when I've gained and lost weight. But my face, hands, neck, lower arms, and lower legs don't change much. I see muscle tone pretty quickly when I start to exercise. And I've wondered for years why my legs look deceptively muscular, when I'm not actually THAT strong.

    Day 6 (yesterday).

    Rest day!

    Got an app for my workouts (Interval Timer), and am planning to do some bodyweight stuff before I go to bed tonight. Probably won't get a lot in over the weekend because I'll be with my mom and aunt most of the time, but I should at least be able to fit in some modified push-ups and crunches.

    Days 7 and 8: Was able to fit a bit of core stuff in, at the end of the day. But only a bit. Not enough to even break a sweat.

    Day 9: Walked for almost the entire day and collapsed into bed when I got home.

    Still haven't gone to the grocery to get all my new healthier food (including smoothie fixins for the week). Hoping to do that tonight, if my debit card PIN has come in the mail.

    Miscellaneous:

    - Going to switch out my sweet tooth fix plan, from small candies to small pieces of dark chocolate. Less sugar, more health benefits, and I like chocolate more than I like candy anyway.

    - I reeeeally want to go running, but it's going to be too hot today. Will probably just do more aerobic stuff at home, indoors.

    - Had a smoothie for breakfast this morning (finally!), but didn't drink enough of it, so I cooked an egg when I got to work. Gave up on the smoothie-freezing plan for now, and will freeze the ingredients instead. Stoked to have turkey avocado sandwiches for lunch this week

    Day 10 (yesterday): Nothing, didn't have time.

    Day 11 (today): Added a bit more in -- because this is getting addictive.
    - 10 squat jumps
    - 5 push-ups
    - 7 sit-ups
    - 10 jumping jacks
    - 20 high knees
    - 8 Y-T-I
    - 5 sit-ups
    - 10 leg lifts
    - 6 push-ups
    - 5 squat jumps
    - 15 second plank

    Won't have time to exercise tomorrow evening. Wondering if I'll have the discipline to get up early and go for a run, while it's still a reasonable temperature outside.

    Day 11: No time.
    Day 12 (today): Probably won't have time either.

    This is kind of frustrating. Makes me wish I could work out in the morning, but I know from years of experience that planning a morning workout is, for me, planning a nonexistent workout. I just can't do it.

    Day 15: Mom flew home today, so I finally had time for this. (Fit a teeny bit in over the past few days, but not much.)

    Today:
    10 sit ups
    5 modified push ups
    20 bicycle crunches
    10 squats
    8 Y-T-I
    10 sit ups
    8 modified push ups
    10 lying leg lifts (or whatever you call them)
    8 squats
    25 bicycle crunches
    15-second plank

    I love that I can see improvement -- even after a relatively inactive week. Excited to keep improving.

    Day 16 (yesterday): Nothing -- no time. I was pretty mad about it, too.

    Three thoughts:

    1) This means I'm starting to rely on the endorphin high that comes from intense exercise. Which is awesome, because that means I'm going to be even more motivated to keep this up.

    2) I need to come up with something to do in between bodyweight exercise days. Something indoors (because summers are so hot around here) and aerobic. But I have no idea what it would be. I'll do some Pinteresting about it today as a productive distraction.

    3) I also need to remember to fix my bike seat, so I can finally start riding my bike around. Which could be a great off-day thing when the weather's a little less muggy.

    Yesterday I did 13.5 miles in 59:23. I guess that's not too bad for an obese guy on a steel mountain bike in 95 degree heat.

    A week ago I got a couple of these in 1.9: Continental Traffic Tire at BikeTiresDirect It's kind of weird how quiet they are compared to the old Panaracers.
