    Alrighty, here's my workout report:

    30 minutes stepper, level 6, 3.71 km (or something like that, forgot to write it down), 112 flights, 212 kcal

    60 minutes weights, lower weight, more reps (3 x 20 per exercise)

    Total caloric intake: about 1500-1700 (sorry, was hungry around 6 pm )

    Umm... does touristy walking count as exercise?

    Sunday: 30 minutes touristy walking around Hameln- also, cake strike begins.

    Monday: feel horrible leaving Springe, an hour and a half of touristy walking around including something called the French garden in Hannover

    Tues: Finally got off my ass 40 minutes of light aerobic exercise in park behind place staying in Hannover. (aww, kiddies going to school). And I still feel really tired for no reason (maybe sleep debt, I don't know). At least 6 km of touristy walking through Amsterdam, cake strike ends. (Amsterdam is fantastic and of course outrageously expensive and noisy at night.)

    Not a great week so far for exercise, but blah, no time or energy. Slightly better on the eating, I think. Looks like even more time sitting in cars for the next few days.

    I'm going to change to the daily updates as it seems it might be more effective in motivating me to continue, as opposed saying at the end of the week "I'm tired, and finished everything. *snore*"

    By the by, LL, it's very wonderful that you have (or make) the time to really devote yourself to the numbers and tracking involved with this. Good work.

    Wolfy, please keep up with the numbers - it reminds one of that article you posted by Henry Rollins, which was awesome.

    1 mile.

    15 minutes, 17 seconds of stumbling around like a drunkard.

    194 BPM.

    Afterwards, I limp away, defeated.

    THAT WAS NOT RUNNING.

    THAT WAS WALKING.

    Okay, I screwed up. I grabbed a quick dinner at the grocery store (sushi) in between my lesson and visiting grandma. By the time I left, I had no energy. So I will have to use a cheat this week, as reaching my 3x lifting schedule goal is impossible.

    However, to make up for it, I'm adding a rule to my goals. From now on, any DQ Blizzard treat I have will be used as a cheat. As my alternate, I am allowed to have a smoothie instead.

    Considering that you are on vacation, I consider it a notable win.

    Yeah, I like the daily thing as well. It helps keep this thing on my mind, even if I am failing at my goals this week like I currently am.

    194 BPM? Holy crap! That's an insane workout. If it's an option, feel free to cut back on that a bit.

    Here are a couple of terms: Max heart rate, and Target Heart rate.

    Max Heart rate = 220 - (Your age). So for someone your age, 200 is essentially your max heart rate.

    Target Heart Rate is what you want to strive for in training. It's Max Heart Rate * % intensity. So if you were 20, it would be (220 - 20) * .5 = 100.

    Generally, the higher the intensity the better the cardio workout, but the less fat you burn. A lower intensity will burn a higher percentage of fat, but not be as good a cardio exercise. Since I don't feel like checking my books, I'll just go with wikipedia and say that .5 - .85 is the desired intensity range.

    Work pants fit loose today. YAY. Still on one small ICEE a day, and eating healthy otherwise. No sodas, only juice, soy milk/milk and water.

    Today and yesterday:

    Less than two cans of soda.
    Daily walk.
    5 mins crunches.
    Vegetation = cup of fruit juice.

    My belly does not seem to be shrinking at all, yet, but I feel as though I have more control of the muscles, if that makes sense. They are definitely getting sore from the unaccustomed exertion.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
