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.

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…

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…
