Day 13: Tragedy

Full disclosure: I earned my first big, red X today on the workout log. Today was so filled with work (despite being my day off) I just couldn’t get to the workout. It’s difficult putting an X on the board, but I have to admit the workout didn’t get in. But the amount of work we got done was awesome – so I don’t feel too bad. I need to realize for the amount of work...

Day 12: Yoga X

I did Yoga way late. My buddy was in town and we were working all day on web projects so by the time I could get to my workout, it was already 7:00 p.m. But the good news is I got it in. Tara even joined in and said it was her first time doing Yoga. She’s much more flexible than me – that’s for sure. So it wasn’t the prettiest attempt at Yoga I’ve ever seen, but...

Day 11: Rest Day

Full day of work today so again, I’m taking my Rest Day. It’s actually nice to have it mid-week because I needed it. Day off from TV tomorrow – so definitely will have the time to do Yoga X. My buddy and business partner Chris Tardiff arrived tonight to work on some projects this weekend. Someone should tell him his first project should be to fix his website, ChrisTardiff.com...

Day 10: Shoulders & Arms

Progress! This is my 100th blog post. And there is progress with the workout plan. Day 10 was pretty good. I had worked right up to the minute of when I needed to start, and I DID NOT want to work out today. But I dragged my butt out of my chair, and put on my shoes and shorts and just got after it. The first 10 minutes is the hardest because you just have to force yourself through it. Once 10...

Day 9: Plyometrics

Plyometrics. My fave. Today was good and bad. Good because I feel like my legs are starting to wake up. They can make it through exercises without collapsing. But bad in that it’s still not quite there yet. I can’t get thorough all of the exercises just yet for Plyo. But it’s definitely coming. Not bad for just the 2nd time around for the program. I can’t get too beat up...

Day 8: Chest & Back

Hello, Monday. Today’s workout was a bit tougher because I figured I could go hyper-mode last night during Kenpo. Count on me to burn up all the energy if its there. Well, today I felt it. Sore! But the workout went pretty well. I had a few mishaps and cut a few reps short, but it was progress over last week. That’s all I’m looking for. Oh, and I forgot to weigh-in this morning...

Day 7: Kenpo X

ONE WEEK DONE! Ah, it feels good. It was a tough week, a busy week…but I made it. Tonight I had the most energy of any day of the week. I didn’t work out until 7:00 p.m. – but it felt great despite working on website graphic mockups all day (I know, nice life). But I got it done. So I have one week in the can. Looking back, Wednesday was the worst. No energy and barely made it...

Day 6: Legs & Back

First Saturday of the workout mix. Usually this is where I ‘can’t find the time’ to work out – but ironically, it is about the best day for me to work out because it’s the only day I do have free time. But I still managed to put it off until 6:00 P.M.! It’s funny how things you hate to do (dishes, laundry, cleaning the closet, etc.) all of a sudden take...

Day 5: Yoga X

It was a good day to stretch these old bones out a bit. I never did Yoga growing up. I thought it was all a trendy joke. Wow, I was wrong. After doing Yoga, your body feels so great, it’s ridiculous. Probably because we rarely stretch (especially us ‘desk jockeys’ out there). I sit at a desk, then move to another desk, then back to my other desk. Eventually, it’s like your...

Old Amway Arena to implode in March

[singlepic id=7 w=360 h=240 float=left] I worked on a pretty neat story today. The old Amway Arena in Orlando will be imploded in March. Originally, developers were going to take it down piece by piece, but that wouldn’t be fun. BLOW IT UP! Actually, it’ll cost the same ($2 million from the city and the Creative Village Developers will pick up the rest), and will be cleared out by...
