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
Well today I was humbled....then I got over it!
I've been fighting some cruddy rhino-virus since Monday night; it's been kicking my ass. Well today I decided to just go sweat it all off at the gym in one of my favorite lunchtime spin classe... Read more
