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
So I was so incredibly busy that I didn't get a change to post my blog for Thursday. I'm sure that the entirety of the world was missing it. But here it is combined with Friday's information. I was very glad that I decided to go back to karate on Thursday. I still feel the … Continue reading Days 319 & 320… C-c-c-combo Breaker!
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
Sunday night brings a lot of contemplating. It's the day before the week starts up again and the lady day of your ignorant bliss. It's where you get to look back on all you did during your free time. Unfortunately for me, it brings to life many bad decisions I make. I know I've gone … Continue reading Day 285, 286 & 287… Bruises, Birthdays and Betterment
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!
I've learned that I am horrible when it comes to "unstructured" days. Normally I am pretty good on the weekend when it comes to eating and taking care of myself. But when you throw in an extra day off from work, I collapse for some reason. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Saturday was the … Continue reading Day 279, 280 & 281… Caning, Cold Showers and Chubby’s
Oh, that joke never gets old, does it? Valentine's Day is a day I've never really liked. I celebrated it "as necessary" in the past but fortunately my wife feels the same way I do. It's February 14th, it's Friday this year and it is just another day in the life. Why dictate when I … Continue reading Day 278… What’s VD?
I already talked about the rain. Love the rain, hate the wet shoes. But it was still a great experience. Other than the Dirty Dash and a little bit of snow from the Mustache Dache, I hadn't been in the water while running. While it isn't something I want to do on a daily basis, … Continue reading Day 274… Back to Stronglifts Land
I did mention to people that running has come quite addicting. Tuesday morning I decided to get up at 4 am and take a jog. And I did. And it felt great. One thing I've noticed is that my legs rarely hurt much after running. They ache a little after I finish, but normally within … Continue reading Day 184… Nothing Wrong With an Early Morning Trot
What a crazy day at work. As soon as I got into work I was bombarded with doing training with some new people on my team. Then I had to try and clean up all the work I would have been doing that had built up plus take care of everything that was newly coming … Continue reading Day 106… Monday’s Down!
