This will be mainly a fitness training log, as I'm doing little-to-no martial arts training at the moment. Long-term goals: lose the gut; get leg strength closer to even. At the moment, my left leg is significantly stronger & noticeably larger. Short-term goals: July: limit consumption of soda* (*insert your preferred regional term for sugary beverage here) to the zero-calorie variety. August: limit consumption of soda to none. Current weight: 167.7 pounds. Goal weight: 165 pounds or less. I'm not really that concerned about the number of pounds I weigh, but I am concerned about the shape of those pounds. Activities thus far this week: Monday: 75 minute run through the neighborhood & along the North Shore Channel Trail; 90 minute walk on the North Branch Trail in the Forest Preserve; some strength stuff. Tuesday: 2 hour bike ride along North Shore Channel Trail; some strength stuff.
