Week off helped a lot; Lisa and I are moving!

I guess the week off from training really did recharge my batteries, because when I woke up this morning the first thing I thought was, “Is today a lifting day?”

“Nope. It’s Wednesday – cardio only.”

My gut reaction was disappointment. My workouts this week have been phenomenal, and when my workouts are excellent I always hunger for more. It’s a very nice cycle to get into. I feel the week I took off from training did me a lot of good.

I encourage just about everyone to take a week-long break from lifting every 3 or 4 months. You won’t waste away or turn into a blob, and you just might come back stronger than you were before the break. That didn’t happen to me this time around, but I didn’t lose any strength, either. That’s especially good because I stuck to my fat loss diet over my week off.

So Lisa and I have decided to go ahead with the new house. We made our final decision last night. This Saturday we’re going to go sign the buy order, make a down payment and decide on our homesite (we’re torn between three different lots). Our current home will be put on the market within a month. This was a huge choice, and we didn’t make it lightly. Now that we’ve decided to take the plunge, our stress has been replaced with excitement. Our new home won’t be completed for 7 or 8 months, but we may have to move to temporary housing before then if our current home sells and the new owner won’t allow us to lease the house back until our new home is completed. Moving twice will be a huge pain in the butt, but it’s an inconvenience we’re willing to accept if we have to.

None of this should really affect this web site. I may take a short vacation and hiatus from the daily updates (2 or 3 days) if we have to move before our new home is done, and I’ll definitely be taking a couple weeks off from my job and this site when the final move takes place towards the end of the year.

I want to thank Banditfist and Badgolfer from the forums for all their helpful advice over the past few weeks. Both of these guys have taken the time to provide me with very useful information, support and insight as I wrestled with this big life-changing choice. Thanks, guys!
