Today’s workout; 4th of July plans; Last chance to register for July 100 Challenge.

Today I’ll be doing my chest, delts and triceps workout and I’m really looking forward to it. With my wrist still feeling 100% I’m going to up the weight and lower the volume. I’m not trying to stress-test the wrist or anything, after all it is (hopefully) healing, but I really enjoyed Monday’s heavy leg workout and have decided to make this a “heavy” week for all my workouts. One exercise I’m going to stay… [Read more]

Great leg workout, but had a close call with my back; Vacation starts Saturday!

Yesterday’s leg workout was one of my best since my cut ended two months ago. It felt great to load up the bar and squat heavy again! Towards the end of my last set of squats I felt a definite twinge in my lower back in the exact same place that I’ve had problems before. That was pretty scary because in the past when I’ve suffered from that particular injury it’s been completely debilitating. Thankfully… [Read more]

Productive weekend; Today’s leg workout; Incredible BLT!

I had an incredibly productive weekend, and I even completed my project early enough to relax yesterday afternoon with a couple of movies and some poker. I’m glad I had a little time to decompress, because this is going to be another really busy work week for me. I’ve decided that I’m going to attempt to take next week off from everything (work, this blog, training – everything). I don’t know if I’ll be able… [Read more]

Productive day yesterday; Missed a couple workouts; Last day of AtLarge sale!

I am way ahead of schedule on the project I am working on. Yesterday I was totally in the zone, solving fairly difficult problems like they were nothing. I love days like that. When I knocked off for the evening the project was 90% complete. There are two issues that still remain, and they are fairly challenging. I knew that with a good night’s sleep and a fresh mind I’d find the solution, and sure… [Read more]

Splurge meal last night, but slept great?!; Feeling awesome this morning.

I woke up this morning at 6:00 AM sharp and jumped right out of bed feeling very rested and alert. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be working on a big project for work all weekend long, and so far this morning it’s been going great! Some stuff that was giving me trouble yesterday afternoon seems trivial by comparison this morning. Sometimes it really helps to step away and clear your mind. I’m on a roll… [Read more]

Diet and training have been good despite the long hours I’m putting in.

Looks like I’m going to have to work all weekend, but I don’t really mind. I’m working on a project that I was dreading, but I’ve made such a huge amount of unexpected progress that I’m actually finding it pretty enjoyable. Yesterday I didn’t do any cardio at all. I wanted to go for a morning bike ride, but one thing lead to another and the next thing I knew it was the middle of… [Read more]

Good workout yesterday; Still working crazy hours; AtLarge 15% off sale!

Yesterday I worked from 6:30 AM until 9:30 PM, and my only real break was the hour I took off to do my workout and shower. Yes, I got my workout in! My wrist still feels 100% fine, and I even upped the weight for my laterals (which typically hurt my wrist quite a bit). I got up at 5:45 this morning, and was already knee-deep in my work by 6:00 AM. I’m making tremendous… [Read more]

Missed yesterday’s workout, had a cheat meal. Go me.

Work is just kicking my butt this week. I’ve been working since 6:30 this morning and I really shouldn’t even be taking the time to write this blog entry because there’s so much to do that I can barely wrap my head around it. Yesterday I completely screwed up. I didn’t make up my leg workout, and not only that I had an unscheduled cheat meal for dinner. I’m not going to make an excuses… [Read more]

Everything went great yesterday; Excellent dinner; Weekly progress report.

Yesterday everything at work went 100% according to plan, and I successfully launched all the new servers I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. WHEW! There are about 1000 loose ends I need to tie up and a lot of little adjustments that need to be made, but things really could not have gone any smoother. Of course right after I brought the final server online and was busily checking to make sure… [Read more]

Important day for me.

Today is a huge day for me at work. Replacing every single server that comprises our core network with all new operating systems and hardware is a little nerve-wracking. I took yesterday off in an attempt to clear my head, but I found myself constantly thinking about the project. I went over every last detail again and again. I was also going over the roll out procedure and contingency plans if something doesn’t go as… [Read more]
