    as most of you know... i'm on house. since house, i've been gaining a new buddy where my stomache used to be lol.

    i can sneak out at night when the old man is asleep because during the day he gets paranoid about me even crossing the street.
    it's winter, though, so even if i sneak out for a jog; my asthma will kick in far before i even make 2 laps around the track... =[

    ever since i got in here, i figured i'd do push ups & sit ups, every morning & night... but that didn't work out because i lost motivation (being stuck inside all day makes you feel like you don't wanna do anything).

    then...

    out of the blue, i figured it out!
    i'm one of those people who need to be pushed or reminded to do things in order to do them... sadly.

    well, i have this program called tclock light (it's very basic & very useful)...
    it's actually just a program to customize your window's taskbar (start menu, clock, etc.) but it comes with alarm clocks & a cuckoo clock

    what does this have to do with me getting back in shape?
    well, sitting at home, you rarely feel like getting off the chair / sofa / bed to do pushups...
    well, if you had someone poking you here & there to remind you, you'd probably feel more motivated (or annoyed) to do it.

    i set up the cuckoo clock (you could use another method or just listen to a cuckoo clock at home if you have one) so i could hear a sound. everytime i hear that sound, i immediately do a quick 5 minute session with sit ups & push ups... i do as many reps as i can & that's it for that hour.
    i'll repeat this every hour during the day (unless i'm engaged in dota, ofcourse).

    it feels kind of hard to do because i might feel lazy but then i just gotta keep reminding myself, it's only 5 minute out of every hour. 5 measly minutes! unless you're dying, 5 minutes is nothing... it goes by just like that.

    if you guys are under the same conditions as i am in, here's a link to the tclock program:
    http://homepage1.nifty.com/kazubon/tclocklight/index.html


    this is just the beginning of my new plan to get back in shape... so if you have any suggestions (workout tips, in-home excercises, anything...), please share!

    If you can, go to the gym. At first it's embarrasing working out in front of other people but it's only bad the first few times. Weight lifting machines get you in shape twice as fast and are much easier to use. I just go everyday at 3:00p.m. before the non-homeschooled kids get out of school.

    Kingy is on house arrest unfortunately. I remember I used to have a book about Bruce Lee's workout routine. It was awesome cause it could all be done at home. My brothers used it back in the day (one ran a pool hall overnight and the other was a....Male Dancer....and not the chippendale kind...)

    Ah, that's too bad. Yeah, I know the feeling alot of close friends of mine have been put under house arrest (well, mostly juvy). Yeah, I don't know what to do, maybe buy a dumbell and an old bench press if you have the room.....

    Well, I do have to say, & I'm SURE you agree, that House Arrest is MUCH better than going back to the Pen (jail for you newbs).
