I just got back from National Trails Day and it was a blast! We managed to pick up an entire dumpster worth of garbage and hauled it out to the parking lot. It was amazing how much stuff we were able to pull out. The dump site we cleaned up was located a good mile […]Read More →

As you all know, my girlfriend and I decided to move to Austin this past weekend. The move went really well and we didn’t have any problems along the way. The drive took us about 16 hours total over the course of two days. It was long and boring but at least we made it. […]Read More →
My first week of the P90X program is officially in the books. I can honestly say it was one of the most intense weeks of workouts I have done in my life. It sort of reminded me of football practice back in high school. My entire body felt sore at some point throughout the week. I had sore muscles that I didn’t even know I had.
For all those who are thinking about doing this program, I highly recommend it. Here is a breakdown of the first seven days and what you can expect from the program. I also included the soreness level for the day after on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being the most sore.Read More →
Two months ago I wrote a post about packing on a few pounds and said I would share my results. Well I managed to gain about 6 pounds and increased my lifts in every single exercise which is always good. An example is the machine bench press, which I did 5 reps of 135 on Day 1. The other day, I pumped out 10 reps of 175. Big difference!
Now that I am moving and will no longer have a gym, I have decided to start the P90X program today. If you have never heard of it, you can check out the website here. Basically, it’s a 90 day fitness program that has helped tons of people transform themselves. The program includes 12 workout DVD’s along with a meal plan to go along with the program. Best part of all, it can be done at home with only a few pieces of equipment (dumbbells, chin-up bar, push-up handles, etc.)
If all goes as planned, I will have my last day on August 15th. I will be posting my pictures and progress after each phase of the workout (3 phases total), along with my before pictures below.Read More →
(Photo by Velo Steve) If you haven’t noticed, it’s been pretty quiet around here for the last week or so. The reason is because I have been swamped with getting ready to make the move to Austin, Texas. The plan is to leave on the 28th and it is rapidly coming up. It seems like […]Read More →
For the past two weeks, I have been starting everything morning with the concoction you see above. I used to drink coffee or tea in the morning to get going but I find this works MUCH better. So what is it?
A Banana-Spinach-Protein-Oatmeal Smoothie
You read that right, everything above is somewhere inside that green liquid. It’s like an energy drink only it doesn’t contain any of the crap they add to it. It won’t make your heart skip a few beats either!Read More →
