Ok, who signed off on the ‘one last snow fall’ clause? It was 67 degrees Wednesday, and then Friday it was 31 and snowing! WTF! Made it to the gym again, but didn’t have time to do the whole workout. Got the main three in (squats, bench press, and inverted rows) and then did the pushups @ home, when I put my wife through hers. She did fantastic. Still pushing herself hard. I might even be getting her away from that slimfast crap. Ugh!

My weight is still sitting at a high 270. Kind of gave up on worrying about my weight. Kind of. I make decent food choices, I just have to work on the portion size. I keep thinking I’m a big guy, I need more. But I really need to concentrate if I want to lose weight. Maybe it is time for another food log.

Gonna pick up on the cardio on my off days too, I think. This wrist sprain makes just about everything a pain tho.

I think I might have found a new blogger to follow. Tony Gentilecore is hilarious (my kind of humor anyway). Found him via Nia Shanks, who had an article on Elitefts. Good stuff as well. Like both of them. Hopefully I can get my wife to follow her some.

Well, I better go. Don’t know if I have left any gems on here or not, but I’m working on it. Let me know what you think.

Ain’t technology grand!

Ok, so I haven’t posted in months, but I just figured out today that I can wordpress from my droid! The functionality didn’t work on my blackberry before. (Some glitch with the BB software that we couldn’t get straightened out). So now hopefully I can get on here more often.

It has been an interesting two months. Stronglifts 5×5 program (my wife, my 13 yr old and myself on this program). Trying to play in an overnight volleyball tourney, and just wearing myself out in all directions. Wow, it has been crazy.

Well, I have really seen nice gains from the stronglifts program. My back squat has gone from 225 to 290 (5×5), my bench from 135 to 195 (5×5), and the auxillary work of inverted rows and pullups has seen some nice increases in work output as well.

My wife and son had me stay up late last (10:30pm) to put them thru the workout. That really impressed me. That and the 130# they both deadlifted! Kewl stuff! I get to my workout every other day (until I sprained my right wrist in the overnite tourney) and they don’t make is as often, so it was nice to see them both not struggle with weights that they wanted to push themselves with. Nice!

If you want to check out the program, you can go here (stronglifts). The more muscle you pack on, the more calories/fat you burn. And women, guys have enough trouble packing on muscles. Don’t worry about bulking up. Do the work, if you see results you don’t want, then adjust… but you have to try this.

Gotta go. See ya soon.
