ilona the pest

insecurity + narcissism = awesome!

Tuesday, May 22, 2007


i just went to the gym in the middle of the workday, for the first time. it was a fun little pick-me-up. i'm thinking of doing that more often. it's hard to find a convenient time to go to the gym. right after work i usually have other things i'd rather be doing. and i can't bear to get up any earlier than i absolutely have to.

i spent 35 minutes on the elliptical machine, which is another first. i'm trying to start doing more "cardio". with my newly sedentary lifestyle -- sitting in one place for eight or nine hours a day, five days a week, eating candy all day to stave off boredom and sleepiness -- i've gained about six pounds since starting this job.

i know, i know. i'm still tiny. i shouldn't be so anorexic. but i feel like this weight gain is definitely not caused by anything healthy. i want to get my metabolism back down to the super-sonic rate i'm used to. that way i can eat all the candy i want.

    The ellipticals are better on your knees but don't burn nearly as many real calories as the treadmill. (although the calorie counters on ellipticals are often so screwy that they say you're burning MORE calories per minute than on the treadmill).

    And there's always moderate weightlifiting. Each pound of muscle you add to your body takes about 50-70 calories a day to maintain. Not a lot, but if you gain 5-10 pounds of muscle, it adds up fast!

    I think ilona should explore the benefits of Dynamic TensionĀ®.

    Summer's coming, and if you don't want some woman kicking sand in your face and stealing your man, you ought to slap on a few pounds of muscle by following Charles Atlas' miraculous method for total muscular development.
