[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 10 {240.0}

It’s been close to a year now of weekly fitness updates, originally just purely essays and now featuring some technical or somewhat anecdotal fitness information, and I can now officially say that I’m regularly and comfortably tightening my belt loop one loop! I used the previous loop basically as long as I’ve has this belt, other than my 6 month, 60 pound weight loss period, along with its surrounding months, so it’s a huge achievement for me!

[Rowing Machine] 2017: Week 49 {243.8}

When all systems are working, the temptation is forgoing maintenance. Everything’s working, after all, right? I’ve been tempted by that sin before. My poor rower¬†is long overdue for a thorough repair. Everything’s still in working condition, so I’m starting a maintenance schedule that works for me. I’ll do a sweep, clean, and check every Saturday with a more detailed version every month. I just need to build a dedicated kit, including¬†manuals and schematics.

[Rowing Machine] 2017: Week 46

There’s a point along your fitness journey where people start noticing. If you work with a professional trainer like I did years ago when I burned 60 pounds in 6 months, the spotlights quickly shine curious optimism on your efforts. That first journey accidentally recessed 67 pounds due to lacking discipline. I’m going at a slower pace for this journey, in ways that should allow my health to shine brightly for years, and people are starting to notice!

[Rowing Machine] 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3

Repetitious consistency is boring. Rowing is repetitious, and unless you’re in the mindset to constantly reproduce consistent results with each row, it’s also boring. So is taking vitamins, eating healthy, reading books, meditation, resting, and doing things that don’t have immediate results. Since I’ve shifted most of my mindset toward delaying gratification over the past year, as I keep the same consistent “1-2-3 pace” in everything I do, I can eventually achieve the “98-99-100 results” I crave.

[Rowing Machine] Two Five Zero

I’ve had trouble for years with consistent exercise. My record was exercising daily for 48 days, then 16, before something would block my progress and I’d revert to my sedentary lifestyle for months. Thanks to this weekly column, I’ve kept exercising almost daily since March. A few days off aren’t too bad when I’m otherwise trying to exercise at least three times a day with “51” of the most intense rows I can give to the rowing machine.
