Asides

Having a little…

Having a little bit of writers block this evening. Its been pretty hot the last few days. I work in a warehouse and I’m in the busiest trailer this week. After work today I got home as quick as I could turned on the a/c and retreated to the basement where it is the coolest! Ate a bit too much chocolate and watched an episode of Quantum Leap. Not even sure if I will go for a run this evening. My beautiful wife is on her way home picking up dinner and I will decide what to do after I eat. So short blog but thats the best I can do. Hope this finds everyone well, cheers!

Had a pretty go…

Had a pretty good day today. Didn’t get that great a sleep last night, I need to get better and turning tv and computer off in the evening. Work was pretty good though and now I’m at home trying to decide whether I should go for a run or not. I want to try and run 10k and hopefully it won’t rain or at very least won’t rain too hard. I just started getting back into running outside. I would like to try and run a marathon one day, Sunday I ran 7k so I figured I would try and up the k’s each time I run little by little. My ipod nano has a fitness option where it gives different running programs. I can either pick time, distance or calories. On Sunday when I said I ran 7k I did the 500 calories workout and it took 7k to burn that. Plus on top of the running I am still doing my 100 crunches per day which finishes on Thursday. I will post more on my running progress! Hope everyone’s week is going well so far!

Its been a few …

Its been a few days since I’ve blogged. I had a couple of ideas of what to blog about today though I think I will blog about how I am actually participating in Lent this year, I am not watching TV or using the computer past 10pm. I’ve never participated in Lent before but was thinking about it more this time and origionally I thought maybe I would not watch tv at all for the whole season of Lent but thought I would do something a little more realistic. So I came up with no tv or computer past 10pm. Right now two shows that I really like Californication and The Walking Dead are on still which is why I figured going the whole Lent season with no TV would be too hard. Plus I would have hours of tv to catch up on when it was over. So far in the past few days I have noticed that my sleep has improoved. I read before bed and fall asleep much quicker then before when I would watch some tv show after 10pm. So if my sleep continues to improove maybe I will keep shutting tv and computer down by 10 every night even after Lent is over. Well thats it for today, I will try to keep being better with the blogging!

Short blog toda…

Short blog today. My wife and I are spending time with friends in Nova Scotia over March break. Just getting some last minute details out of the way before we go. I think I’m basically packed. Have a couple of stops and we are meeting my parents for breakfast who are driving us to the airport. Should be a great trip, I have my camara and should take lots of picutres!

Its been a very…

Its been a very good week but a busy one. Thankfully I’ve been turning off computer and tv for lent which has helped my sleep this week. My sleep is still not quite where I want it to be but I’m getting between 5-6 hours of sleep at night which wasn’t always the case before.

I finished my TRX training sessions on Thursday. Hard to believe it is over and I had a great time though the workouts were pretty intense at times. I did improove a lot. My instructor recorded the numbers of how many times we did certain exercises on the first day and also on the last day. I improoved so much on many of the exercises and I have more balance on the lunges. I still find the lunge exercises kind of tough but I’m getting better. Hopefully my wife will be able to do this class at some point soon I’m sure we can get $300 together for it. Though maybe it won’t be for a few months seeing we are going to Nova Scotia during March break.

Today I’m taking it easy. No gym today though I may go for a walk later. Have to figure out what to do in the gym now that TRX is over. I want to try some of the classes that Goodlife offers within the membership. I thought I would try a spinning class morning but didn’t wake up in time for it. So I will have to try next week. When I was at the YMCA I used to do a lot of their classes which were great only they didn’t start till 7:30-8pm. I finish work at 3pm and find it hard most times to go home and then go back out again to work out. I need to go straight to the gym after work. Goodlife’s classes seem to be between 5-6pm which works out a little better for me. I guess we shall see.

I do think that people should check out Goodlife and try the TRX demos and see if they like them!

I had a rough start to the day, my alarm didn’t go off for some reason this morning. Or I turned it off in my sleep and didn’t realize. I wasn’t late for work though I did sleep in a bit and it through off my rountine a little bit. I had some laundry to finish and coffee to be made, both things that should have been taken care of the night before but I didn’t get to them because I was tired. Thankfully I have an amazing wife who took care of both things for me which helped me out a lot! Got out the door on time and caught my bus and the rest of the day was great actually! Work was pretty steady all day, got my Valentine’s Day gift for Mary Louise (a little last minute but I think she’ll love it!) and I had a great TRX workout! Looking forward to Valentine’s Day tomorrow! ML and I had our VD date on Saturday so tomorrow we are just going to our music lessons and watching The Walking Dead! Hope everyone has a great VD tomorrow!
