    I came, I saw, I kicked some ass!

    Yesterday was an APA meet in Sacramento. I weighed in clothed at 214. Scott has added a 220 women’s class because guys like me who are just a smidge over the 198 are getting our asses kicked by these 320 women. So he made a class for us. I certainly nailed the class and possibly the entire meet. Opener 205 -nailed 2nd lift 210 -nailed 3rd lift 215 -nailed I was going to go on a two hour bike ride today, but my body is really tired, so I think I’ll give it a rest today.

    Danger -Rant Ahead

    Some poor schmuck made the assertation that AB 1634, which is the mandatory spay neuter bill in the State of California was the fault of the Democrats and their big government mentality and that the Republicans are all for personal responsibilty. So away I went: What a steaming pile of horse crap. It’s not about big government, it’s about issues. Turn off Fox. If there weren’t thousands of dogs being picked up by the dog catchers, if there weren’t numerous cases of dog maulings by intact animals, this wouldn’t be an issue. San Francisco has had two high profile maulings in the last few years. One was the lacrosse coach,…

    Keith Olbermann is God

    OK, we all knew that. The guy was funny as hell on ESPN and then he moves over to MSNBC and hits his stride. Dude is setting the world on fire, as well it should be. No, you can’t call the VT kids an example of the wussification of America because they weren’t packing heat and didn’t fight back. They ran. They’re kids. Neal Boortz you fat overblown moron, shut up. Rush Limbaugh calling Cho a liberal and then saying that Media Matters fell for your “joke”? You drug addled sweaty pig! You need a call from Alec Baldwin. You are what’s wrong with this country. And News Flash! Looks…

    Final approach

    I’m ending a 84 day cycle this week and boy did I stink up the place. This morning’s numbers: Weight 214Fat 37%BMI 36.5 OK, kind of sucky, but I’m starting to get things going in the right direction. I’m competing on Saturday at my favorite venue BodyTribe Fitness in Sacramento. I hope it’s a nice day and they open up the dock doors. I just dig that place and I like the organization that Scott Taylor runs. He’s such a low key dude. It’s a totally enjoyable experience. I should also see my buddy from Walnut Creek. She weighs in around 104 and benchs around 135 AND is a US…

    Last night I had dinner with two old Title Officer friends of mine. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this stuff for 30 years. I can’t believe I’m turning 49 this year. How did I get this old? I understand when I stand up. My knees and hips creak horribly, but my mind is that of a teenager. Anyway, my friends are young at heart as well and be bitched about the business and how it is not what it was. How the kids coming up now don’t know how to search a piece of property. If it’s not in the computer, they’re like a fish out of water. We…

    Moving forward

    I seem to have gotten my workout head in a better place this week. Yesterday went perfectly. This morning: Weight 214Fat 37% WTF?BMI 36.7 I can live with the other. I ate perfectly yesterday. I hope to do the same today. I went for a long walk at lunch yesterday, but I’m going to do a short one today. Worked out hard yesterday, nailed my cardio today. I figured out yesterday was 90 days exactly from my competition in Hawaii. It gives me a good goal to work towards. I need to start hitting yoga more often so that I can surf when I get there. Cowabunga!

    Last week went well, all things considered. Being 48 and still cycling is brutal. I wish I could send this equipment back to the manufacturer. The weather was crappy this weekend. Better today but way to breezy to bike. I spent 20 minutes doing HIIT yesterday and then another 30 minutes on the stairmaster. Today I took Mr. Man for a hike up Mt. Diablo. Kicked both of our asses. I’m so ready to go next week.

    Hard Work+ sketchy eating = not much success

    This office is full of things I should not eat. My weight is slipping upward, and I’m not so happy about it. It’s raining and my allergies are off the hook. Claritin and Flonase are my friends. We just closed the Savemart acquisition. It was a freaking huge transaction and they ran my ass off. I missed a couple of workouts, but haven’t missed a one in two weeks. I’m going up to Sac to compete on the 28th. I’m strong. My super powers have returned. I wish I could get some weight off. I’m coming in at 216 right now and it’s totally pissing me off. Today the office…
