1. Strong Enough to Shoulder It He grabbed the Librarian by two handfulls of chest hair and pulled him up to eye height.'I'm not bloody well going to have it, understand?' Vimes shouted, shaking the ape back and forth. 'Oook,' the Librarian pointed out, patiently.'What? Oh. Sorry,' Vimes lowered the ape, who wisely didn't make an issue of it because a man angry enough to lift three hundred pounds of Orangutan without noticing is a man with too much on his mind. -- Guards, Guards Goal: Lift Heavy Things (preferably not Orangutans) 3 times a week 2. The End of Cake Winder's mind felt even fuzzier than it had done over the past few years, but he was certain about cake. He'd been eating cake, and now there wasn't any. Through the mists he saw it, apparently close but, when he tried to reach it, a long way away. A certain realization dawned on him. "Oh," he said. YES, said Death. "Not even time to finish my cake?" NO. THERE IS NO MORE TIME, EVEN FOR CAKE. FOR YOU, THE CAKE IS OVER. YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF CAKE. -- Night Watch Goal: Take a month off from sugar My diet has tightened up a lot, but damn do I still have a sweet tooth. I'm going to make an effort to cut out anything with processed sugar - sodas, sweet tea, cookies, etc. etc. 3. Long Arm of the Law 'It seems I've only got to be unwell for a few days and you manage to upset everyone of any importance in this city.' 'Sir.' 'Was that a yes, sir or a no, sir, Sir Samuel?' 'It was just a sir, sir.' Lord Vetinari glanced at a piece of paper. 'Did you really punch the president of the Assassins' Guild?' 'Yes, sir.' 'Why?' 'Didn't have a dagger, sir.' -- Feet of Clay Goal: Heavy Bag Workouts 5 days a week Goal: Swim Cardio 2 days a week My new gym has a heavy bag and a pool. The heavy bag is a great warm-up before I lift weights, and it's also a fine Act 1 before I do a longer bout of cardio work in the pool. I'm trying to get to the gym every day, so the heavy bag will be my warm-up every time that I do. Special Long-Term Quest: Cholesterol II Vimes carefully lifted the top of the bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich and smiled inwardly. Good old Cheery. She knew what a Vimes BLT was all about. It was about having to lift up quite a lot of crispy bacon before you found the miserable, skulking vegetables. You might never notice them at all. -- Thud! Goal: Lower cholesterol numbers (significantly) by September. OK that doctor's appointment has finally been scheduled for September 19, next week. My cardio is better, my weight is down, but I may need to go ahead and start with the cholesterol meds if my numbers haven't dropped.
