If Only…


If only… I had any shred of will power, I would be ripped like a son-of-a-bitch. But no, I eat like an asshole.

I’ve always exercised with a lot of intensity. If I don’t, I feel like I wasted my time. Today was no exception. I had a morning and evening workout. The morning started with RPM class. The instructor that was leading the group today was a bit of a sideshow. She’s always singing and dancing and making jokes. It’s really annoying. Her only saving grace is that she runs the toughest RPM class out of all the instructors. I literally feel like I can’t pedal for one more second when it’s over. I ended the morning with an abs workout and plenty of stretching. 632 calories burned.

This evening I made my triumphant return to Muay Thai (not really triumphant). My wife convinced me to go. I wasn’t going to, but I could tell that she wanted to workout with me. It was a good class. Lots of technique. That was fine with me. I was still feeling the morning workout. It had been 4 months since my last appearance at MT, so I wasn’t expecting much. I’m glad I went. Hopefully I’ll make it out more frequently. 507 calories burned.

It’s Been a While.

I’m back I guess…

Not only did I delete all my blog posts back in June, but I haven’t been training at all.  Unhappiness and loneliness is a bitch.  I’ve kept up at the gym, but haven’t set foot in my Muay Thai/BJJ school.  I’m not sure if or when I will start back at BJJ.  I should be back to Muay Thai in a couple of weeks after school starts back up.  With the kids back at a regular schedule, it will be much easier.  As far as BJJ goes, I don’t know if I can make myself get back at it.  I just hate the fact that I suck so hard.  It seems like no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t improve.

I have been working a lot of overtime this summer.  I had set a goal to get all my debt (minus mortgage and car payment) paid off by the end of August.  It looks like I have succeeded.  My final supplemental cheques won’t come until a couple of weeks of September, but the hours have been earned.  I really only had 1 week off this summer.  My wife and I arranged our schedules so that we were able to avoid paying for any daycare.  That’s a big expense we avoided.  It meant that we really didn’t get much time together as a family, but it will be worth it in the end I think.

Some fun news.  Last week I finalized the booking of a trip to Whistler in December.  There will be 10 of us going.  I only know a couple of the guys, but I am still really looking forward to the trip.  It’s been far too long since I skied at a real mountain.  I even bought a new pair of skis in anticipation.  LOL.  I know it’s only August, but it was a heck of a deal that I couldn’t pass up.
