I really hate when things don't go the way they are planned. I had zero intention of running today. I might have ended my lifting routine with an up-hill walk or something, but not a run. But I decided to work at home today which means I didn't have access to my work gym (without … Continue reading Week 2 – Day 5: Dagnabbit!
You probably thought I had forgotten all about the blog! Well, I hadn't, I have just been getting things in order when it comes to health and exercise and all of that. Life is good, it's being lived and I am happy. What I have been struggling with is figuring out exactly what to do. … Continue reading Goooooood Morning… Wherever You Are!
Or not. I honestly don't understand the reason we let companies walk all over us when it comes to deliveries and services. "We will show up between 10 AM and midnight, so make sure someone is at home during that time." I guess we have no choice since pretty much any company does it, so … Continue reading Days 324 & 325… Special Delivery
After thinking about it all day long and discussing it with my sensei and others I've decided to stick out my karate for the time being. I will not do what we did on Tuesday (at least not until I am ready) and will tell others to back off if necessary, but I enjoy the … Continue reading Day 318… One More Shot
I've bragged a time or two about High Intensity Interval Training. Originally I only read about it, then I followed the practice and now I am preaching it. I can attest to how beneficial it is to do. It is something that really gets your calories burning and can be done quickly. It's the perfect … Continue reading Day 269… HIIT Me With Your Best Shot
I guess that is what happens when you get used to NOT doing something... you forget to do it when you're supposed to do it. Like I am supposed to be posting a blog every night about my daily activity but I have forgotten the past couple nights. I'm not too busy to do it, … Continue reading Day 242… Late Again!
Being sick is a terrible thing. I honestly don't know if I am sick right now or if I just can't get rid of the cough I have because of the crappy air, but no matter what it is I want it to go away. This isn't just an annoyance, it is something that actually … Continue reading Day 240… Out Damn Cough, Out!
100 days... triple digits... nearly 1/3rd of a year down. I can't help but be motivated, excited and proud of what I've done over the past 100 days, and yet I still feel disappointed. I was hoping by this point of the year to feel comfortable enough to take my shirt off to go swimming … Continue reading Day 100… Triple D’s
It's crazy just how much a night of not being able to sleep can change your attitude. I'm certainly not a morning person (my 7 years of graveyard shift can attest to that) but I normally am up-and-at-'em as soon as my alarm goes off. I look forward to getting to work and getting it … Continue reading Day 93… Who Needs Sleep?
Well, as much as tabata has been a running part of recent life, I've talked with my wife and we have decided to let it die. With me starting up strength training again (on top of cardio) and my wife starting up resistance-band training (on top of cardio) we are both too sore to do … Continue reading Day 79… The Death of Tabata
