I was going pretty strong for a minute, but then got busy and got off course. That is what happens when I try and do these posts at the office of course. I will have to try and make sure I fit them in later in the evening for sure if I can’t get to them while in the office itself.
So end of week two going into the Christmas holiday wasn’t so bad. The people I am working with now are so far so good, and I have pretty much made myself at home in my little cubicle. I have off till next Thursday so that is a good thing, well technically I have off. Though the Prez has declared a federal holiday for Xmas Eve it however doesn’t apply to me, which sucks, so I have to telework that day.
Today I also get 59 minutes, too bad I will have already worked a full 8 hours by the time I can actually leave for the day, so what is the point and all. Oh well.
So far this week have gotten in 3 of my 4 weight training workouts, the other will likely happen on Saturday morning, today probably have stuff to do after work and all, so no workout tonight.
On another front, I have decided to get my Personal Trainer Certification back as well as add a Cert from Precision Nutrition, I want to add to my ability to earn money going forward so these are things I can do that will likely be less costly vs. my Firearms Trainer Certs, as the cost to insure on those is much more than training, and I have most of what is necessary in my basement to train people in my own home, so that is a bonus. Should take me a few months to get these two things in order, I am going with an organization I was certified through about 15 or so years ago, which is the ISSA, I think they are a good group, as it was founded by a Powerlifter, and me being mostly focused on that area of training myself it fits for me.
OK, so I am rambling like all get out at this point so going to stop now before I just keep on going.
So almost to the end of week 1 at the new gig, and well for this week its been pretty boring, but all good. There is usually a warm up on these things, going forward I should start to have some shit to do. And eventually probably too much shit to do.
On other fronts, have gotten in all my workouts this week, with yesterday being deadlift day, 3 x 3 x 225lbs. Was pretty easy to hit. I am far weaker today than I was a long time ago, but with this 5/3/1 routine the goal is to build back some strength, before making a decision to go back to CrossFit. I am leaning towards going back to CrossFit more so because I think it will have far better effects in terms of keeping me moving and injury free.
On the writing front haven’t done anything there but do my daily blog posts which surprisingly I have kept up with for now. So I am happy about that for sure. I think going forward I might also do a post just to ramble about something I find in terms of weird news on the net somewhere. We will see about that. Why not, it will get me to do some extra writing.
I think this will be it for now, we will see if I get something posted later.
So in reading some news today, or seeing it on YouTube, gotta love my former home a state and its liberal insanity (sorry if this offends but liberals are stupid) as they have no had some moron state senator pre-file a bill to limit magazine capacity to 5 rounds. I guess he thinks this is going to stop some criminal from slapping his 33 rounder into his GAT and going to town on his enemies.
Yes in case it hasn’t become obvious at this point I am a supporter of the Constitution of the United States, most especially the 2nd Amendment of it, because without that there wouldn’t be much else left at this point thanks to the liberal stupidity going on in this country, can’t even call them liberals anymore these people are going full on communist in a lot of places and stripping peoples rights as quickly as they can get it done.
What this basically is going to do it limit the residents of NJ with 5 shot revolvers and the few semi-auto handguns that come in 45 that only hold 5 rounds, these are generally subcompacts to boot. Now again NJ has been notorious for its draconian gun laws for quite some time, and I lived there most of my life.
Today I am a law abiding gun owner, also a firearms instructor and working towards doing some competition shooting as well. So guns aren’t evil, they don’t go off all on there own, they require an individual who has evil intent to use it for an evil purpose. This country has plenty of them, and the vast majority of them are known to law enforcement, so if you want to stop gun violence you have to take the bad actors off the streets and put them behind bars, not target law abiding gun owners. WE didn’t do anything wrong.
OK, enough political shit, had to share about it because its just full on stupid.
Otherwise, today is another boring day at work, but I figured the first week would be just that and hopefully I can get into some stuff next week for sure.
Tonight is deadlift day, so heading home shortly and getting in my workout and relaxing for the rest of the night.
So today is my second day at the new gig, pretty uneventful at this point in time to be honest but I figured as much since it is only the second day and well what all am I going to really be doing at this point. But that is OK, I figured it would be like that for a couple of days either way.
So in the meantime just hanging out till they get me some work to do. I figure it won’t be too long before that happens. At some point I will be doing some traveling for this position but don’t know when or where it will take me but each new location has always taken me someplace new to check out.
I am winding down the first 9 weeks of 5/3/1, not sure if I am going to do another 9 weeks of it or transition into something else, like back to CrossFit or not. I still haven’t made up my mind in terms of what I am going to do so we will see still got 2 weeks left before I finish those 9 weeks.
I still haven’t gotten to the point of getting something posted every day but I will work on it, I have plenty of time to get to it and still don’t but trying my best to change that for sure, even if that means posting from my phone, which is what I am doing now. I have this nice Logitech Blue Tooth keyboard which I am using to do the typing right now so it makes it far less painful.
Still another hour or so to go at work, the boring days are never fun, they totally suck, but oh well you are going to have them.
