Hittin' the Gym

During Q4 things get really nuts at work and like most people I find it hard to get the gym with any regularity. This year was no exception. I quit the gym near me (All Star Fitness) even though it was a pretty decent set up, I just wasn't going. Just a 4 blocks from my house there was a new gym about to open and I after meeting with the owners by chance one day I joined up. The kicker is that it was 24 hour access and small. Small is good, keeps out the weirdos and attracts the disciplined. It's a chain gym too (Anytime Fitness - that's an actual pic of it to the right) with locations in Dallas, Denton, and lots of other places, so there's reciprocity. Anyways, I was able to stay in decent shape in Q4 using some weights at home, I invested in a while back, but now I'm back. I'm finally feeling strong again now that I go every other day or so, and only work out at home when I'm bushed and just want to push a little weight around. I've forgotten how good it feels to be focused in the gym. It's a place that I can be selfish and learn about myself via little tests of will, me vs. weight. The tipping point finally occurred, now to hold on to it for a while.

I Drank That

Public warning. Coffee from McDonalds is lame. While I was waiting for some new tires to be put on Lindsay's car I grabbed a cup of this stuff from across the street. Ugh. Not good. Put your curiosity to rest, I took the bullet for you.

Hockey Talk

I met Lindsay at the arena today, and got a backstage tour of the goings on there. They crew was just finishing the hockey ice and hadn't installed the goals yet, so I tried one of them out. They call me "the wall". Yes, that's a squeegee "the wall" is using.

Deep Snow (Prior Week)

White Christmas Snow/Rain

We're still melting out from under the snow, but today, Christmas day, we got a little light snow mixed with rain. I took a little video of the front and back yard so you can see what we have left and our white Christmas.
