Lazy, Busy, and who knows…

Yes a bit of everything at this point. But the big point is I haven’t posted a damned thing here in the last several days. I am going to chalk most of it up to just being way to busy for my own good, followed by laziness. Most of what I have been doing is working, which has kept me quite busy while here so I don’t have a lot of time to just take a few minutes to post something.

After I get done with work it is off to home where my time is then consumed with working out, then dinner and paying attention to the wife and our puppy. And catching up on the reading I need and want to get done. In the last couple of weeks I have finished a couple of books, one being The Terminal List: A Thriller by Jack Carr, highly recommend giving this a read for sure, it was a great book. The other book I read was The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out by Brennan Manning, also an excellent read which has helped me greatly on my journey back to God.

On the fitness front, I have mainly been doing Crossfit workouts, but I am going to go back to a more strength training/power building type routine at least for a few months, I think I will benefit from it far more as though Crossfit is great it isn’t giving me what I want in terms of strength and size gains/body fat loss. I have also started this week stepping up my eating game, because I seriously haven’t been eating enough food at all and this I am going to put on my wife as she forces her restricted calorie intake on me at times because she thinks I am eating too much, when my reality is I need somewhere in the vicinity of 2500+ calories a day just to maintain. So I decided to avoid letting her dictate so much in terms of what or how I eat in order to get my shit moving in the right direction. End goal still the same 10 – 12% body fat by the end of the summer. Bodyweight isn’t important just composition.

To that end I will do the power building type routine I have done in the past focusing mostly on the big exercises 5 sets of 8 reps for each. Trying to do a couple of different exercises per body part and working each body part once per week to start. Then working my way up to twice per week if I see fit. I will be including some Tabata style finishers at the end of each workout to get in necessary cardio and then doing cardio only on off days.

Well this is it for now, gotta actually get back to work and all.

Hump Day

Too bad there won’t be any humping going on…LOL

But seriously, in the name of trying to write more everyday I am doing some right now. Just going to be randomness for right now.

So my job, what I do for a living, I am a Technical Writer/Technical Publications Manager, it is more of the latter though, why do I say this, because the reality is I don’t really write much of anything in my job at this point in time, actually for my job I haven’t written much of anything in the last 8 – 10 years. I do a lot of editing and verifying of things, but don’t write anything at all. This is what makes my job rather boring at times, because it is kind of feast or famine, as I wait for contractors to deliver work to me that I get to review, which doesn’t happen often. It is usually 4 – 6 weeks in between deliveries. The biggest thing that breaks up any monotony of the whole thing is the travel that is required to do the verifications, and that in the very near future will have me on the run for several weeks.

And of course that is why I am trying to get in some real writing of some sort or another by doing this, and trying to get some stories written. It is also why I am trying to get my firearms training biz up and running, but that has present some of its own issues, due to required approvals of curriculum, but that is moving now finally.

Well that is all for now.

Ah Monday, and a gov’t shutdown

So I work as my full time gig as a federal gov’t contractor, so I am right now sitting on the edge of my seat hoping they vote to re-open the gov’t today, though it doesn’t affect me, it does my wife, I get to come to work, while she is now sitting at home because of the shutdown. According to what I have heard thus far it appears they will re-open it today.

I have been bad at this point and haven’t posted a lot recently which is not good of me, just been busy with life. My weekend was pretty busy, my sons B-Day was on Saturday, he turned 23, and in a couple of weeks my granddaughter turns 1, time has flown that is for sure.

I have since started back at regular workouts focusing more just on strength training, and that is working out better as far as I am concerned, so this weekend was just cardio workouts, so on Saturday I rowed for about 25 minutes and on Sunday we just went for a nice long walk with our dog more than 2 miles.

So all in all a nice weekend.

Of course back at work now, really can’t get much done with the gov’t being shutdown all the people I need to do things for me are all furloughed and all, so I am just hanging out and making it look like I am working.

All for now.

Raw…

Just wanted to put something out there, when I do a post here on this blog it will be RAW, I am not going to go back and edit shit, or re-write shit, well unless it totally isn’t making sense, I am just going to write, as that is part of the goal here, to just put what is on my mind or shit I think is interesting out there for others to see and hopefully to get those same people to interact with me in regards to it.

Now being this is going to be RAW, well I can say it could be really RAW, so there is a good possibility as I allow the real me to get to the surface I might offend some of you folks reading this blog, sorry but you are getting the real me, and well I am not going to apologize for that. In the end I want this to be entertaining even if it is offensive, this is the real world after all, somewhere out there is something that will offend anyone. Though I have yet to be offended by anyone as of yet.

I don’t, thoughts that I needed to share and all as I try and get this shit ramped up and try to get more readers and for me to do more writing, and honestly I don’t want to be worrying about what I am saying, if you don’t like it, well that isn’t my issue its yours.

OK, enough for now, more later.

Workouts for the Weekend

OK, so workouts for this weekend

Saturday

300M Row

5 Reps Power Clean 95lbs

10 Reps KB Sumo Squat 53lbs

15 Reps Box Jump

5 Rounds for Time.

Finished in like 34 minutes, knees were killing me on Saturday, gotta love the cold in the North East.

Sunday

34 minutes Elliptical

Again, knees were an issue today, which is why I did the elliptical

One of the things I must start doing is getting in more Crossfit workouts during the course of this year, need to just lift more in general and this has always been good for me since I have started doing it. Cardio is good, but lifting always the best. Gotta do something to stay ahead of my shittie diet, at least until I get it all cleaned up.

Hump Day…

Well for me it is, this wonderful three day week has me all sorts of fucked up with timing, and then next week is just going to be 4 days. But I am OK with that at this point.

However I am not OK with it being under 20 degrees again today, not quite sure why after all my life in the NE that I am still not used to the cold when winter comes along. And it has roared in this month with both snow and now wind and cold. Please go away! And more snow to come this weekend as well.

Still working this training stuff at work, it is really fun, NOT! I have 10 more modules to finish by the 2nd of January, good thing I found out I can get an extension, which I will be looking into tomorrow, going to need it as I won’t get but 4 maybe 5 of them done by then, all depends on how long it takes me to get through the tests.

All in all just another boring day at the office for sure. In between I have been doing some more exciting reading though, nothing like a couple of erotic stories here and there to get a good boner going while sitting at your desk…LOL

All for now!
