How I forget these things is beyond me.

October 18, 2010

So I don’t know how I forgot to mention that I went on a hike this weekend.  The girlfriend and I went to Worthington State Forest to go to Sunfish Pond.  I say I don’t know how I forgot to mention this was because it was one hell of a hike. We took the trail that was quite steep. I have done a good bit of hiking in my day – nothing too serious – but this was one of the harder ones. It was definitely one of the most rewarding things I have done recently. The soreness Sunday morning was a good reminder that I had a good Saturday. I will try to get some pictures up later today. They aren’t on my camera so I have to wait.  Boo.

Football Sunday

October 17, 2010

Man do i look forward to today.  It is the best day of the week.  But my love for today is kind of bittersweet.  As much football as there is today – tomorrow is still Monday.  Another week of work – but my focus will become stronger as the week goes on.

Just for the record – James Dolan is a fucktard.  That greedy motherfucker needs to get his chit together.  Those that do not know Mr. Dolan, he is the prick that is Mr. Cablevision.  He is the reason that FOX is no longer on the air.  Lucky for me, the Giants games are on FOX (convenient: yes – sarcastic: yes).  Right now the Jets game is on – yay.  Talking about this has gotten me all worked up.  Gonna go back to the game now.

It’s been…

October 8, 2010

…too long since I have posted anything.  I can’t complain about anything going on in my life right now.  Still have been crazy busy.  It’s my favorite time of year.  Football, playoff baseball and hockey just started last night.  I am like a little kid around this time of year.  Tomorrow is the season opener for my Rangers!  I can’t wait!  Yanks won the last 2 on the road and can sweep the ALDS tomorrow.  The Texans host my G-Men on Sunday.  Gonna be such an awesome weekend.  Also, I have a hike planned with the girlfriend tomorrow morning (Gotta love how that comes after all the sports stuff :D).  Have to get back to work now, just wanted to check in and let everyone know I was alive.

Everything hurts…

September 29, 2010

…in a good way. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I have been having some really focused lifts lately and it feels great. I missed being sore all over so much. It seems like such a sadistic thing to say, but the soreness feels amazing. That’s it – short and sweet today.

Talk about…

September 23, 2010

…feeling great after one workout, and the next day feeling like absolute shit.  Yesterday was a pitiful excuse of what lifting should be.  I was not motivated at all and thought about calling it quits halfway through.  I decided not to – which was good – but wasn’t happy with myself after.  I got over it because sulking over it won’t accomplish anything.  Tonight will be different.  I am motivated to not suck so bad.

Good Decisions

September 22, 2010

Yesterday, after work I felt so drained.  I was sitting down, relaxing when I knew I should be preparing myself for lifting.  I sat there and decided – I am in no mood to lift, there is always tomorrow.  About 5 minutes after this choice – a terrible one I might add – I talked myself into actually lifting.  It was so unexpected.  An hour later I was soooo happy I decided to not sit around.  I felt amazing – I caught my second wind and was ready to do stuff with my life.  Those are my favorite lifting sessions because of how good you feel after.

I feel like by making one good decision, it leads to another.  Taking initiative and forcing yourself to make these decisions leads to a happy and healthier future for yourself and others.  As a pessimist, this kind of talk is unheard of :o.

Another week gone by…

September 20, 2010

…and me still not having any time. I am, by no means, complaining either. The past week flew by and it is Monday once again. Last week was just busy with work, lifting and friends – ending Sunday late morning (right before football started – which meant my day wasn’t going to be ruined by missing football) after a night in Philly. I was very tired when we got back but still managed to not miss any games. After my Giants put on such an amazing show in the 1st quarter I knew it was going to be a long game. And it was. Don’t really want to talk about it.

Me and the girlfriend (who actually enjoys watching football – which is…beyond amazing) have been looking forward to that new show on HBO:   Boardwalk Empire.  It was kinda weird but I think it has a lot of potential.  We shall see what next week brings.  Only negative about the show is the time slot.  It’s in the middle of SNF – not cool.

Busy

September 9, 2010

It seems like there is no time anymore to do anything. I finally have a minute at work to sit and relax and update you guys on whats been going on the past week.

The past weekend was a blast. Friday was very relaxing. Dinner and a movie. The rest of the weekend…not so much. There was a wine festival on Saturday during the day. Later that night a buddy was having a BBQ. Managed to drink only water and brought some clean snacks with me. The next day me and the girlfriend went to AC. It is always a good time there…also means I’m throwing some back. Managed to eat clean, but had a few drinks. No big deal. Monday was a day of recovery 🙂

I wasn’t going to get on the scale Monday but after much debate I did. Down 3 pounds? I’ll take that any day. Going out to dinner tonight for my girlfriend’s birthday. I am motivated to not get off track. I know to pick the right options and not to over-indulge.

Also, I have been started the second 30 days of P90x. For these 30 days I am going to try using resistance bands to see if I like it any different. So far: not impressed. After this 30 days is up I will probably make my way back to the dumbbells…pending my results.

It is time to go back to doing work. I will try to be more active on here, but until then…

POV

September 2, 2010

I started this blog to share my journey with others.  After reading other people’s blogs, unlike everyone else, I feel like I don’t have a direction I’m going with it.  Right now I am just posting to post, but I don’t know what I want to post.   I guess it’s one of those things that will just happen over time and can’t be forced.

I was thinking maybe make it specifically about creating new recipes and how they aide in my weight loss?  Who knows.  I guess there will be a change here soon…maybe?  Until then…

Mini Goal Reached.

August 30, 2010

Well, hello everyone. It has still been rather hectic trying to get things done here. I’m not complaining by any means, just have not had time to really do a daily update.

So, I jumped on the scale today.  Down 3.9 pounds from last week.  Awesome.  My first mini goal is completed.  Yay.  This weekend wasn’t easy to eat clean either.  A bunch of my friends were having end of the summer/birthday BBQs.  I managed to not drink anything but water at them, which was a lot easier than I thought.

I need to get back to work now, just thought I would check-in.
