After giving it sometime to choose between Blogger and WordPress, I've finally decided to start blogging in WordPress /Fitness_Lover/admin/fitnesslover001.wordpress.com
Blogger has driven me nuts although it contains some important features to me that WordPress is missing!
Anyway, WordPress has got me to its side!
It took me pretty sometime to style it up and finally got my first blog posted their.

I've decided to start blogging at one of the websites specified for blogging. There are many blogging tools available across the Internet but the free well-known to everybody are:
Currently, I'll try the Blogger tool, although I've been hearing many people saying that WordPress is better than Blogger due to its flexibility and the tools bundled with!
If anybody has across what I've written here then I would highly appreciate the comment to be left here or there!

So, What do you think folks??
It's been about 2 months since I graduated from the University & now I'm seeking a job. During this time I was sending my C.V. to many companies that has a relation to IT fields. I met with some IT managers for interviews. Some of these interviews were like a normal conversation and some were very professional. For the latter, I think they even need some courses to manage to conduct these interviews successfully. I even tried to answer these questions at home but still can't get a good answer. It is really a headache. Anyway, I got a good job so far. All what I need is to sign the contract with them and go ahead with them and improve myself.
During these 2 months, till now, at last I managed to hit the gym and started working out very hard.
in the 1st month while I was exercising my forearms I got my neck hurt "it suddenly got very strained to such a degree that I couldn't breath for seconds", and that lasted for 2 weeks till I felt my neck was OK.
Keeping the short-term along with the long-term goals in mind will make people who are in fitness more focused. It helps in keeping track your progress by comparing your current results and accomplishments with your desired goals. Short-term goals will motivate you to work as hard as possible and so does the long-term goals.
So here I'll mention my long-term goals. Regarding the short-term ones, they can be seen from my BodySpace profile.
My Long-term goals would be like the following:
I wish you all reaching your goals successfully!!!
So, last 2 days were warm-up workouts of type circuit training as follow:
|Legs||Barbell Full Squat|
|Calves||Standing Barbell Calf Raises
|Back||Bend Over Barbell Row
|Shoulders||Dumbbell Shoulder Press
|Biceps||Dumbbell Biceps Curls
|Triceps||Standing Overhead Barbell Triceps Extension
Duration: 30 min each
Also, they were followed by a 10 min of Cardio Training
Status: Currently, I'm a little tired......To be continued next time!!
At last, I have got my freedom. After 4 months spent during my last semester in the college, I have finished my B.S. Degree in Info & Computer Science. At last, I have graduated.
My last semester was really very tough. I was struggling to do my best, and WOW I did it. That was why I stopped working out. I found it very difficult to focus on both going to the gym & studying, and my rule is always free time is extra time to study.
Anyhow, I have graduated & finished my B.S. Degree. Now, it is time for seeking a job.
Of course, I have enough time now to work out very hard. So, I'm back on track again....
Co-Op Assignment: I have done my Co-Op Assignment with that company & it was finished at 23rd January 2008.
College: Getting ready for submitting the Final Report, doing the Presentation & starting my last semester at my College.
Workout: It's been about more than 2 months since I stopped working out.
- Probability of getting back to working out: 20%.
It seems I'm gonna run into a long hiatus.
Last day of working out was on: Thursday Nov 8, 2007
Today is: Thursday Dec 6, 2007
Total weeks of this Hiatus: 4 weeks, about 1 month
- got one of my relatives dead in a painful incident.
- my grandfather got a brain stroke.
- don't have a car to go to the gym.
Alternative: I have some simple weight training tools, barbels & dumbbells, at home. So, I'll try to adhere to some simple workouts. Circuit training would be great for the time being with the current situation.
Being busy at work and my academic study, that what has let me not to write my weekly blogs at all since I was admitted to work as a Co-Op trainee (this is part of my academic study). So, I have to write my work reports and submit them to my professor.
Anyway, the most important thing is that I'm still able to pursue my daily workouts. So, working out is so far so good. Progress is so great:
- It's been about 5 months since I started this program.
- Weight progress : http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/Fitness_Lover/more.php?section=progress#weight
- Fat% progress : http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/Fitness_Lover/more.php?section=progress#bodyfat
- Rest break taken during this period:
- 2 weeks, Oct 6-19
- 1 week, Nov 10-16 (current week)
- 2 weeks, Oct 6-19
Thanks for reading my BodyBlog...
On Saturday 7/4/2007, I took my Coop Program Package, introduction letter informing me about the dept/ division the I'm gonna work with.
To be brief here, I was assigned to a dept that its needs don't fit or suit my specialty. So, it took me about a week an a half to change that dept to another one. Thus, I've been just reassigned to more suitable dept, which requires a person who is skillful in programming-related area e.g. Java, SQL Oracle, JSP, C# ...etc.
During this time, I was really fed up with the situation to such a degree that I couldn't sleep well, so couldn't work out well, too.
Anyway, things are fine now and my workout got serious this week and cuz I was too excited and enthusiastic about working out I faced some of the Over-training Syndromes, hehehe :D
Tomorrow, I'm going to know where I'm going to work. Tomorrow, I'm going to know weather I'm going to live with my family or alone. Tomorrow, I'm going to know if that place has a gym or doesn't at all. I think I'll be crazy by tomorrow.
So far, I'm in a hiatus of 3 months. We'll see tomorrow if this hiatus is going to continue or not!!!!!
Wish me good luck, my friends!!
One of the major requirements to complete my B.S. Degree is to work on a project with a company in a period of about 28 weeks.
Two weeks ago, I was assigned to work for a company as a cooperative training program for 7 months starting from the current week and officially on Sun 7/1/2007, i.e. tomorrow. Simultaneously, I was intending to start working out on the same day that I'm supposed to start the work with that company, BUT as usual problems always come to you.
Today, 6/30/2007, we were at that company waiting to hear our names to know at which location is the work, the Building, the Department ...etc. After that long waiting they said who didn't hear his name, of course I was one of them and also some friends of mine. The answer was that they couldn't assign th work for all the students because they faced some problems inside the company, whatever the problem is, so, next week the rest of the students will be assigned the work.
But the problem is that the location of the work might NOT be in the same city that I live in, and what I'm also afraid of is that the cite might NOT have a GYM!!!!!!
Am I going to not work out for 7 months??? No way!!!
What a dilemma ?
Due to my college examinations, I couldn't log in to my BodySpace (I really miss my friends on the BodySpace (KatNap, Jelita, mmerwin, Rocio, Alicia, DawnMelanie)) and I had to stop working out for 2 months. consequently, my BF% has increased a little bit and my body has been screwed up. So now, I need to fix what the 2 months break did.
If you are curious about my examination results then I did very well, and grades were above the expected. Actually, if I haven't stayed away of working out for those 2 months I wouldn't have got what I got. So, great job from this aspect.
Regarding working out, those 2 months really screwed up my body and my BF% has increased, and now I need to begin a fat-losing stage to decrease that fat, so I'm intending to get my body shredded and ripped and that is intended to be done during the coming 7 months starting from the next week, hopefully.
My workout will be the same as the previous workouts but I'll try to perform some types of Cardio training after the workout is done, also some types of stretching. So, to see my full workout please refer to following BodyBlog:
Regarding workouts distribution, the following table will show you how workouts are distributed on days:
|Mon||Chest and Biceps, Forearms, Lower Abs
|Tues||Shoulders and Traps, Forearms, Upper Abs|
|Wed||Back and Triceps, Forearms, Lower Abs|
|Sat||Legs and Calves, Forearms, Upper Abs|
On the free days, I'm thinking of doing some Cardio and Abs exercises. I'll see what will I do on theses free days during the coming days
So, just wish me the best of luck.
It has been a month since I posted my last blog "Back to College". During this month I made a little change to my workout plan. I swapped (Wed workout) with (Sat workout). So, it seems as the following:
|Mon||Chest and Biceps|
|Tues||Shoulders and Traps|
|Wed||Back and Triceps|
|Sat||Legs and Calves|
The reason for swapping them is to take my time to do Leg-Stretching after Leg workout, since I’m free on that day.
Now, here was the dilemma. Keep working out according to my plan and focusing on the academic studies. So, during that month, all what I could perform was 2 weeks training according to my plan and then only working out once a week with a full-body routine, off my plan, just to keep my body active. The reason for that was the college. I was having major EXAMS, home works needed to be submitted, projects, meetings till 12:00 am “Oh my God” …. and still, more duties are coming.
