Adductors 3, 2, 1 Lift-Off

I did my adductor circuit machine stretch this morning, because I want to live with continued dignity during my retirement.

  • Two reps of five minutes on setting # 3 of 10, where setting one is the widest.
  • One five minute rep on setting # 2, but failed to get the full stretch.

Later this same afternoon, I went back for a second session, but the inflammation from the first session limited me to stretching on the wider setting # 4. #LifeFitness #Adductor #hip #hips

Prayers for Longterm Employment or Fitness

I ask for prayers and luck for continued long employment with my employer or my chin-ups.
.
Dave Ramsey says that tithing is part of Financial Peace University.  I ask for prayers towards my (1) chin-ups, my (1) adductor machine, (1) the health of my hips, (1) my 180-degree leg splits, (1) my favorite online fitness instructors Zuzka Light and Kino Yoga.
.
I regularly practice fitness exercises and neuroplasticity exercises – POSITScience BrainHq, and Lumosity, and COGNIFIT.  Those smiles are another of my exercises.
.
Even in my pre-60s, I hope to eHarmony . com.
.
So I give a partial tithe to your ministry, in quid pro quo towards prayers and luck in my own employment.

Ruining Resolutions

—– Some people who want to mess up other’s New Year’s resolutions, just don’t flush the common toilets. And it makes quite a distraction.
—– Many leave the common toilets unflushed. Then they declare themselves against others who have to have (a) everything just-so and (b) everything-in-it’s-place. It is great fun for them to distract.
—– But maybe it’s only around here, that they do that. They want to be the “first”. They want a name for themselves. And if we are the one who flushes the toilet in response, then “we’re the one” and “we’ll be sitting alone” without support.
—– I say all of that because I have wholesome goals I want to complete in 2017. And it gets difficult when others create their stinks, just to have their fun. And with that said, I probably won’t complete my wholesome 2017 goals anyway because of them.
—– But I will try anyway.

They Ruin My Diet

—– To keep with my 2017 diet resolutions, I throw out sugary and fatty foods. But people around me insist on cooking sugary and fatty foods in celebration of the holidays.
—– I tried throwing out their foods, in small amounts daily, until they are gone. But it takes forever.
—– I’m the only one who eats it. It’s a one-way conversation.
—– And these people don’t listen; they just keep cooking the offensive foods.
—– My own diet-discipline is nill. That’s why I don’t like them bringing crappy foods into my perimeter. But it’s well said that we cannot control the behavior of others. So I cannot insist that others cease cooking unhealthy foods.
—– It’s not funny.

Industrial Topics Flat at Work

I can still recall a past job, where I AutoCAD drafted floor plans in 2D. But in a few months, I told the our client I can tie all the 2D files together into a 3D model of the entire building, that we can do virtual walk-throughs. The client rejected that innovation. I was and still am astounded at that. (1 of 4)
.
Frequently, I would go to the corporate lunch tables with the comment,”How about that game last night.” And my co-employees always said unfailingly,”I don’t get into all of that.” (2 of 4)
.
Every job has its professional organization. Accounting has the Accounting Association, etc. And the entry-level jobs also have theirs. You can join the National Safety Council, as an associate. But when I discuss that in the office, they always say it’s just not needed. (3 of 4)
.
So my co-employees all told me, over time, that they preferred to never hear any scholarly conversations, intellectual conversations, or conversations about our industry and trade issues. So I started bodybuilding and dieting, because power and strength is ALWAYS a good conversation piece. (4 of 4)
.
I can say,”I may not be smarter than you. And I may not be able to do my job up to your expectations. But I can still do more situps than you. And I can still do more pushups than you. And I can still do more squats than you. And my treadmill, stationary bikes, and rowing machine abilities are stronger and more energetic than yours. I can best your past.

Daily Caloric Intake, for September

—– Here is my daily caloric intake, in September.  I am averaging 1310 daily calories, across 20 days.  Yes, I am slowly losing weight.

—– I am losing one pound, by math, each five days or roughly each week.   One pound has 3500 calories.  And the average diet for an adult is 2000-2500 calories a day.  That comes from the side of a cereal box.  So each of my average days has a 700 calorie deficit.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

  • 9/1 – 1000 calories
  • 9/2 – 120
  • 9/3 – 2879
  • 9/4 – 0
  • 9/5 – 3927

  • 9/22 – 1334

—– As an aside, I used to eat one pint of ice cream each day.  And each standard pint, by any manufacturer, has 800 calories.  That pint took the edge off the day and helped me sleep.  While eating one pint each evening, I went from 200 pounds to 240 pounds in six months.  And that pint also gave me a lot of energy, so I developed into doing chin-ups during those six months.  But I did gain 40 unwanted pounds.   [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– I want to drop to 199, down from 240 pounds.  Now that I have confidence in doing chin-ups, I want to get back to a manageable weight.  And I expect to do that by running a 700-1000 caloric daily deficit, instead of slamming down a 700-1000 caloric daily excess.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– The LA Fitness gym has a posted front-desk sign that forbids LIVE STREAMING.  So I will not post pictures.  They would not be self-flattering anyway, at this time.  So please accept this public domain picture as a substitute.
