Update 4/1/10

1.  Enjoying my second day off.  Weather couldn’t have been better if I wanted it to be.

2.  Trying to take apart the server rack today.  Why can’t anything be easy.

3.  Spent the majority of time watching a Merlin marathon on SyFy.  New season starts tomorrow.

4.  According to the Library I no longer exist.  Just used my card to pay a fine a couple weeks ago, but as of today I was no longer in the system.  Had to register again.

5.  Got back into the gym yesterday and am going again tomorrow.  Hopefully this is the start of lifting regularly again.

Lifting 04/16/08

I’ve been slacking lately posting info from my workouts.  I have continued to lift almost everyday since the last post but haven’t been able to find the time to update the blog with the results.  Today was the last workout for a week.  We are taking a week break and then will start up again with a new workout schedule and exercises.  Although we won’t be lifting I will probably do some cardio on a few of the days during the break here.  Hopefully once we resume the workouts I will be able to keep the blog updated regularly with my progress.

I realize that sometimes it is hard to follow the workout the way it is written but some of these are hard to translate from the paper I have to fill out as I go to something that can be written like this. Hopefully it is at least somewhat clear for any of you who decide to read through it!
