Easy not to write and read

I am so distracted – crazy how time just runs away from me.

Distracted- deadlifts in the gym

I have felt already this year that I “wasted” blocks of time in the new year. I hate this feeling and I need to be better to schedule out my time.

I acknowledge that it is not being busy to be busy even when I feel that I do that also.

Distracted again: deadlifts last rep – be back

Back after a little PR on deadlifts and re-racking the weights 110kg x 10 -not bad

I use to think blocking time slots robbed my creativity or spontaneity. I come to the conclusion that the opposite is true.

Discipline to have time to be free enough – to be present in the creativity instead of thinking of everything that needs to be done or forgot to to do

This is Weber m where personal freedom lies. Creating a lifestyle that gives you the space to be you without pressures suffocating it all.

Jan 2

it’s Jan. 2nd and the doubt is thick

I feel like daniel in the lion’s den praying they don’t eat me and in this metaphor, the lion’s den is my own self-doubt and past failures

this is way being fat most of your life does to you

It robs you of your freedom by robbing you of peace of mind. the knot in my stomach is just anxiety that “I know, I will fail” AGAIN

It is this ghost that haunts constantly and erodes confidence

it whispers from under the stones that you are too scared to turn over.

the lack of confidence or worth that drives the emotional reasons and turmoil that lights the “survival” mechanisms.

I never met a gym trainer that hasn’t been overweight and understands the scaffolding of this.

It has been a lifelong battle full of frustration, disappointment, and restarts to end up fat again

That is why this attempt means so much.

Every time I need to restart the desire to do so is less and less. It seems an impossible task considering I have run 2022km in 2021 and been to the gym 163 times in 2022 and I am still fat.

It is not like I don’t try – the fittest obese man over 50 you will meet.

2021 and 2022 have been hypothesis testing-
Will running 40 km a week lose weight(for me): NO
Will going to the gym 3 times a week to lose weight: NO

What is left? Eating only Eating

I never thought I ate bad or even too much but I can conclude that those carbs I do eat make me store fat quicker than most.

I also can conclude that I don’t eat enough protein. 1.8 grams per KG I want to weigh.

therefore 2023 is all diet

High protein diet of good wholesome foods and protein shakes to get me to the protein number per day I need. I am aiming for 162 grams per day.

Doubt or not, this is the hypothesis for 2023

2022 Gym Routine

This is my simple my novice gym schedule and I think it is important to say that this is my schedule based on the following few factors.

  • It has to be easy and take roughly 1 hour
  • It has to fit into a 3 day a week lift schedule

I scoured the internet for common exercises and these are the ones that stuck for 2022. I originally started with Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. Toward the end, I just followed the flow and was always in the same order. Legs, Chest, Back.

The goal was to get into the routine to go to the gym and this has been a slow and great start for me. I focused on the form and not the weights. I added a bench goal ½ way in the year.


  • Romanian Dead Lifts
  • Leg Press
  • Leg Extensions
  • Standing Calf Raise
  • Hip Abductions Manching
  • Machine Crunch

Originally, I started with Squats and experimented with them, yet was more afraid to ruin my knees. I love deadlifts – they are my 2nd favorite resistance exercise


  • Bench Press
  • Incline Bench Press
  • Tricep Pushdown with Bar
  • Concentration Curls
  • Machine Chest flies
  • Machine Crunch

Bench press is my favourite exercise – set a 2022 for benching 100kg(220lbs) x 10. I will continue to bench in 2023 with a goal of 143kg(315lbs) x 1


  • Lat Pulldown
  • Dumbbell Shoulder Press
  • Dumbbell Row
  • Seated Machine ROw
  • Reverse Machine Fly
  • Machine Crunch

Blogging at the gym ?

Last day of the year thinking is is possible to blog at the gym? 🏋️‍♀️

Seems it’s possible to write ✍️ anywhere. In between Romanian deadlifts and now on the leg press at 156kg

Deadlifts 90kg

Tomorrow is the 1st day of the new year and I will stop in the gym as the first and last day are the most important as it sets precedence with myself.

Leg press

I have 2 years of reaching my resolutions and I plan to reach my New Year’s resolution 2023 also without exception.

2021 run 2000km | 2022 visit the gym 150 times and 2023 eat high protein everyday 150+grams and write it down.

It’s the real key 🔑 boiling habits down to easily attainable daily/weekly tasks and give yourself the dopamine hit by checking shit off


Above is the calendar I wrote in up until summer vacation where I had a steady routine. This year will be no different.

Leg press done ✅ – was going to do leg extensions but that machine is in use so I will do my nemesis machine – abduction


So I guess I can blog at the gym
