No more fried foods

I decided that it would be clever if I ate a large chicken parm with lettuce, pickles, hots, a little bit of mayo, and sauce a couple hours before.  You know, so I get all the energy from the carbs, plus add fries on the side and I thought I'd be good to go for my work out.  Full of energy and grease...

So I went off to my meeting after eating and about two hours later we finished up.  I decided to throw on my Pandora and listen to the Bob Sinclar channel I created.  Then I decided to pull out the deck of cards and go through my pushup routine (you remember the 430 within an hour).  I pulled the deck out and went through the first 90 without a problem.

Then I thought to myself - let me do some squat thrusts.  Now, I haven't done squat thrusts since the third grade.  Really - I'm not fucking around here.  I flipped over 4 cards and came out with 33 reps.  No problem, right?  Right?  WRONG!  By the time I got to 23 I was coming up like an old man who was getting off his donut he uses for his hemroids.  I, greasers and greasettes, finished the 33 and from then on decided to pull only two cards at a time for the squat thrusts...



Moral:  The joints aren't squeaking quite yet with all the grease I have coursing through them...

Party in the moonlight



and dance til the sun rise.....i can't help it - i'm going to dance through life...and this brings me to today's lesson on being greasy without being greasy...I was taking a shower after I had watched a fantastic movie full of blood and guts and gore and action...the film - Ninja Assassin...

Predictable, yes, if you were looking for the clues, however very entertaining for blood lovers, exceptionally entertaining for martial arts lovers, and overall a fair story with deep insightful thoughts by the master Ninja, although a bit cryptic and eerie at some times...the main thing I took away from the film was that my ass needed to train much harder...

fast forward now to me taking a shower and thinking to myself about training on rooftops in the rain going balls out.  This isn't a movie but the training of a martial artist that I know of.  The man works as a perfume salesman and once he is done he works out on rooftops after helping people with their illnesses.  Renaissance man - definitely...and he gets 4 hours of sleep a night - which is all he needs - he dances to the sun rise by training...



Moral:  Can you find the grease?

It's finally over with

With power lines down, streets flooded, detours all over the place, my basement a swimming pool, other peoples basements as well...the rain has finally accepted the victory it had over us 2 days ago.  It stayed an extra two days to kick us while we were down and give others flat tires and has now gone away, at least for the time being...

I can't begin to tell you my disdain for monsoon like rain.  Yes, we need rain, so droughts don't occur but I felt like it was about time to build a fuckin arc.  I couldn't walk without being ankle high in water - doesn't help that I'm short though...now I don't really hate rain, I like it when it's warm out - the white noise is relaxing and you have an hour or two or three where you can just watch it and be mindless...

However, I got to the point where I really wanted to punch the rain because it was incessant!  I've never wanted to hit anything so badly in my life to be honest.  I was thinking of opening up my trash can - letting the rain collect and beating the snot out of it just cause.  But alas, I realized I was thinking like a lunatic; cold flooding rain tends to get to me - especially when I'm watching dirty rotten scoundrels and need to leave to change a tire in it...



Moral:  Rain rain go away and fucking stay away you fuck!  I'm still bitter - so sue me!

Imagine a world



I know I try to keep it for Friday's with the house music but I figured to start the week off on the right foot - then the left - then the right - then bouncing - then hopping - moving your hands around - up and down - left and right....

Get the blood pumping people - it's a wonderful world and you're here to experience all that it has to give...even with the ups and downs this is still a wonderful world...I mean I was at work this past Saturday morning til 2am (got in at 9am on Friday morning)...and I kept listening to this song

Well the CD but you get my point - it got some pep in my step to keep me working well longer than I should have - also helped that I had the Kuerig to get my coffee on ;-)...so just imagine the endless possibilities that are available to you with positive thoughts...



Moral: Now go out there and try it....
