Well, for anyone who read my blog yesterday, you know that SWMBO and I did our part for God and Country by spending an un-Godly amount of money on cakes and desserts at a charity auction Friday night.
The monetary amount, however, was nothi... Read more
So here's something I would never, ever have thought I'd hear myself say....last night I had me a big old slice of chocolate, bacon, and stout cheesecake.
Actually 2 slices...2 big slices!
Let me start from the beginning.
For the ... Read more
Many of my SP buds know that I like to workout and I especially like ST.
I vary it up, alternating ST between "Heavy Days" and "Medium Days". On heavy days, I go for 5 reps of very heavy weights for everything; squats, deadlifts, bench pres... Read more
So yesterday was leg day, my heavy ST day for legs and back. I was pretty freaking amazed to be able to squat 4 sets of 5 reps with 250 lbs on my back....straight up and down with no wobble. Deadlifts, while also heavy (3 sets of 5 at 315 lbs) w... Read more
So today was great...actually an ideal day.
I clambered out of bed, showered up and made some breakfast. I thought about having a bowl full of cantaloupe and some yogurt, then laughed at myself and grabbed 3 chocolate bunny rabbits leftover... Read more
So I freely admit, I enjoy working out. It wasn't always so, but it is today. I enjoy both cardio and strength training. I like pushing my limits on both, whether it means getting my heart rate up doing interval training for cardio, or adding mo... Read more
Well today SWMBO and I threw #2 son's birthday party. We invited about 20 of his good pals to a bowling alley where we rented a couple of lanes and fed them pizza, cake, and soda for 3 hours....man am I glad that's over!
Last week was #2 so... Read more
So I'm very pleased to report that rest days have their payoff (see my last blog www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=5288651 )
I felt totally refreshed and raring to go for a heavy legs ST... Read more
So I like to work out. Since 2007, when I stopped smoking and decided to get up off the couch, I have found immense pleasure in moving, running, cycling, lifting, pushing, pulling....almost everything except jumping.
Being a bit of a data h... Read more
So one of the great thing about being 53, as opposed to being 23, is that I have a much better appreciation for what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong, what is important and what is not important.
At 23, I could eat w... Read more
Yes, it's a sad insight into the human condition to witness how material things can bring us such pleasure......BUT I AM REALLY DIGGING MY IPHONE 5 AND ALL ITS GEEKY APPS!!!!!
Some of you remember my existential angst from last week when I ... Read more
So even though I'm taking this week off, I've still got a few events I need to go into the office for. Today I had a meeting that couldn't get re-scheduled, and tomorrow, my boss has a VTC that's "muy importante", so I'll need to be there for a ... Read more
So how cool is this....I just designed a professional gym's weight room!
For the last 6 weeks, the gym I go to has been remodeling. They added a floor to accommodate a whole bunch of new cardio equipment and built an addition for a new (and... Read more
Covetous....yes, I am covetous. I have suffered much, drowning in a sea of envy, a deep, gaping hole in my soul yearning for.....
....a new iPhone!
It's a long and somewhat complicated story, one that strikes me at the core of my being... Read more
So last week was a tough week....nothing really bad, but I was under the weather with some crazy rhino-virus that messed with my head. It wasn't enough to knock me out, but it slowed me down just enough to make simple things difficult. That and ... Read more
