I've never priced how much it would cost to make my own smoothies, but in my head they are far too expensive so that is why I don't drink them nearly as much as I would actually like. I went to Roxberry's tonight because I had a coupon for basically a free smoothie. They … Continue reading Day 323… Smoothies
In a world of excess, sometimes there is just not enough. There's too much food, too much anger, too much violence, too much deception, too many divorces, too many homeless people and too many government. But on the other hand, there isn't enough money, not enough jobs, not enough food, not enough love and not … Continue reading Day 283… Not Enough!
Our local K-Mart went out of business not too long ago. I wasn't too heart broken because I rarely ever stepped foot into any K-Mart let alone this specific one. The timing was nice, however, as it was just before school started so we got some decent deals on school clothing. I still think that … Continue reading Day 215… Workin’ It From Home
So I realized after posting my post for the weekend that I made the mistake of talking about Monday. I wasn't supposed to do that. I was supposed to only talk about the weekend. That got me thinking; maybe I should go back to posting at the end of the day. It can't be that … Continue reading Day 211… Another Change or Two
Yeah, back to the gym. It's actually been that way for a few days, ever since the temperatures starting hovering in the 30s and 40s even in the afternoon. As much as I said I prefer running on the treadmill, I actually kind of miss doing it outside. It also makes me sort of nervous … Continue reading Day 178… Treadmills It Is
Ah, another day in the gym. Another day surrounded by meatheads who flex in the mirror every 28.2 seconds and teenagers who think that swinging a dumbbell like a pendulum will actually help them build muscle. That's right, dude, use your back, hips, thighs and every other part and it will build your biceps. You're … Continue reading Day 165… Pumpin’ Iron
Luckily I didn't need any myself. I don't expect gyms and rec centers or any other place that has exercise equipment to spend time and money making sure that every piece of equipment is kept in pristine condition. It does make one wonder how much they really care about the quality of their equipment. Do … Continue reading Day 157… Snitches Get Stitches
It's been a while since I pounded some pounds, pressed some limits and sweated in the underground weight room at my gym. My back pretty much made me afraid of the place. When I was at the doctor, he had told me that I could continue to lift but that I shouldn't increase the weight. … Continue reading Day 155… Da Gym Is Dat Way
I'm probably one of the few people in the world who actually likes going to the gym. I am inside so I don't have to mess with the elements (rain, snow, sun, heat...), there is usually a television somewhere nearby so I can keep up with either Dr. Phil or Sportscenter (guess which one I … Continue reading Day 150… A Walk in the Park
So after my month of not doing so well I've decided to make some changes. I'm going to stop weighing weekly for one thing. I think that it discourages me far too much when I don't move down much or at all. I know many people have told me in the past to stay off … Continue reading Day 141… I Sure Missed You, Gym.
