Third day of working out happened, and it seems I am going backwards-ish. Did less distance on the stationary bike than I did either of two previous days, but when I weighed myself at the end, it turns out that I have lost one pound. That brings me to 303 pounds. At this rate, I should see 300 by the end of next week. It'll only get easier from there.

Not much work has been done on the game system, lately, but I'm not worried. Knowing what I have to do makes things easier to get them done. I should have some time in the next week or so to crank out some more material. I'm looking at having the main rulebook done by the end of August, then working on the genre/setting modules over the next couple months after that. That leaves me about three months to work on the adventures.

Sounds like a plan to me...


  1. I would suggest just doing cardio for the first two weeks and avoid weight training. What will happen is that you will loose fat and gain muscle resulting in a total (+) weight gain.

    I would also recommend doing 20 to 30 minutes of cardio before starting your workout. The first 20 minutes of activity burn sugar stores in muscle. reserves are not tapped until 20 minutes.

    Best of luck

  2. First I would say that in your first couple of weeks the main goal is just getting to the gym. You mind needs 2 weeks to get used to doing anything. Do not worry about getting results in either weight loss or increased cardio-output.

    When you make it to the 2 week mark you may want to alternate weight training and cardio. Though I agree with Dave that most people like the 20 minute warm up before lifting.

    The big thing is get to the gym. Simply getting there is a win since you are going to do something once you are there.

  3. Yeah, getting to the gym can be difficult, especially for me as I am not a morning person, but early mornings are the best time for Loquacious to go, and she needs someone to help her with the motivation of just getting there. Once she's there, she's golden. Plus, since I am there, and the machines are there, and I need to lose weight... I might as well do *SOMETHING* while I am waiting for her... =P
