Damn everyone....I didn't expect that many people to agree to my invitations, but I really do appreciate you all coming!!! I want to address one by one so that I don't leave anyone out
Inarius - Dude you should definitely come along. There is a cert class may 2+3 but I simply can't afford it right now...but the 1st I am almost definitely going to be there. I really think everyone else that's close enough should come too! Raising canned goods for the needy is a huge cause to support...and you get an awesome DMC style session (probably about 4 hours) for free!!!
Rosie - I really appreciate you dropping in and I look forward to your insight!
Boro - Dude....I think you can handle both . Just in case you decide not to come...congrats on the graduation!!!
Smeton - Actually i'm depressed about 234, haha. I was once just about 300lbs and the battle has been dropping fat since. I DID put on a good deal of muscle to go along with my fat....but i'm up A LOT of unwanted weight in the last year. I am posting a pic with my update for today.
Ak - you should definitely come out bro....it's an awesome cause, it's super cheap, and you'll not be able to believe the intensity of the workout. DMC sessions have NO weights involved at all...and I bet you (and many others including myself) will leave in extreme soreness!
SB - TubClub Represent Brotha!!!
Karim - I love the support from the Sponsored Athlete sector!! I appreciate you coming in!!

I was supposed to be playing tennis today indoors because of the rain that has been dumping on our area. I must not have replied fast enough to our team's captain that I would be available and my slot was filled on me....so no tennis for this guy today . I was really looking forward to hitting but I made the best of it and went on about my business. My girlfriend's daughter has a cold anyway...so I spent a lot of the day trying to help out and make sure she was alright. It was a nice and comfortable day off...and tomorrow I am back out in the garden's and pond's for another exciting day of Landscaping!
It wasn't really a "session"....but I will list what I did anyway
Unilateral Leg Work
Rx1 - 1 minute *ea. leg*
Rx2 - 1 minute *ea. leg*
Rx3 - 1 minute *ea. leg*
I ate completely 100% clean today so I was happy about that. My time's were a bit off because I was trying to keep the little one happy...but I ate totally clean. The only negative being that I had a chicken/romaine/tomato in double fiber grain wrap at around 10pm and I will be heading to bed before midnight
What Tomorrow Holds
It really all depends on how crazy work is. Right now on a 3 man crew we are supposed to do an entire property cleanout and a pond cleaning tomorrow and get it all done...so I may be fairly beatup tomorrow night. We shall see how late I get out and what kind of energy I have left
****Pic from today, I will get a real one up sometime soon****

Addition : For anyone interested in that State College, PA DMC class with Renegade Training on May 1st here is some more information.
It will be held at Victory Sports Performance and the fee to attend the class is bringing some canned or dried foods that Renegade will be sending to the World Food Bank to help out the needy throughout the US and other countries that have people in desperate need of food.
I really hope anyone close by can attend!

As for the twin boys coming your way...when a life ends, a new one begins...in your case...two new lives will begin. Congrats to you Papa Deuce.

Welcome Bozwick, Emerger, and the RowMaster! Thanks for coming by and giving a helping hand

After my 9.5 hour shift doing landscaping today, there wasn't much left in the tank so I took it as an "off" day. I have started to feel a cold come on lately and so far i've been fighting it off...but it's been coming on harder lately. I hope it leaves me alone!!
Just chillin dawggies
I ate totally clean today and also at most appropriate times. My biggest issue was actually not eating often enough. At the site I kept trying to get to my car for some water and a handful of cashews and then back out to the site...haha
What Tomorrow Holds
Since this update is late and it is already "tomorrow"...I can safely say that I did not go into work today and I am going to clean up this wreck of a house and then either have a solid workout, or hit the baseball fields or tennis court
03-31-2009, 10:24 AM
Landscaping work is no joke, yesterday I had to move dirt around to smooth out this hilly area out here and my fricken hands hurt from all the shoveling and moving the wheelbarrow, repeat for only a few hours...
Good job on the clean eating, after a while it will become natual to do it!
03-31-2009, 10:27 AM
yeah man...I was already feelin like poop and yesterday we did A LARGE property. The owner of our company said it was an ex NFL player...but we weren't allowed to ask his name or anything like that because he was a secretive guy. He was decked out in Florida Gator gear though.

I decided to call off from work today for multiple reasons. Firstly, I felt like crap when I woke up and since my girlfriend has been sick for over a week....I was trying to take care of it early so that it doesn't create an issue! Secondly, because my "foreman" at work has successfully been high and fallen asleep each day on the job and i'm totally sick of it. And lastly because I wanted a day to myself .
Turns out that when I called in to the owner to get my reporting duties for tomorrow, he let me know that the foreman was fired today because of the issues everyone has had with him and that he is happy with the work i've done for them so far. That was great news and now i'm actually looking forward to work tomorrow!
Had an awesome workout today also...had no one with me to "spot", so I decided to run some KB's to the MAX!
16kg Kettlebell Swing
15reps x 3 sets
16kg Kettlebell Snatch
10 reps x 3 sets - left arm
10 reps x 3 sets - right arm
Double 16kg Kettlebell Power Clean
10 reps x 3 sets
Double 16kg Kettlebell Front Squat
10 reps x 2 sets
Double 16kg Kettlebell SOHP
10 reps x 2 sets
Double 16kg Kettlebell Floor Press
10 reps x 2 sets
Unilateral Leg Work
Rx 1 - 45 seconds *ea. leg*
Rx 2 - 45 seconds *ea. leg*
Rx 3 - 45 seconds *ea. leg*
I ate totally clean today again, but a little heavy at dinner. The meal was still clean...but I had whole wheat pasta with some lean meatballs...and I had like 1.5 plates. Granted we use much smaller dinner plates than the average family....but I was still hoping to just cut it off at 1 plate. I will have to work on that. I also had an "Emergen-C" cocktail of the Vitamin-C mixed with the Bone Health formulation to battle my illness and my knee issues lately. It tasted good....and I think it's working fairly well! I've also been taking a lot more fish oils lately as well.
What Tomorrow Holds
I am back to work tomorrow...so we'll see how I feel when I get out and what time it is. We have USTA Tennis Team practice, but if i'm not out in time...or if i'm totally wrecked...then i'm going to skip it for some stretching and body work. Tomorrow shall tell
He's so PICky
I figured i'd add in a spot where i'll post a daily pic. I usually post pics of myself or of the workout/nutrition....but I didn't take any today so uhh....here is a crest of my family with one of the 2 original spellings before we got to Ellis Island

these are the kind of posts I want to see Chuck!
and yes, I think landscaping counts as working out
03-31-2009, 07:50 PM
Thanks brother ....I was happy about this update a lot myself!
Dude...after the first 2 days of landscaping, It was a more intense feeling of sore than any weight session i've ever had!! The only thing that might have made me more sore in my life was baseball tryouts for 2 weeks in High School. After the 1st week I was already hurtin and then once you make "first cuts"....they turn up the 2nd week of tryouts for more intensity, haha. In high school I was in awful shape...so it was a pretty bad scene

I dig it
ps - everyone who is following along, haha. Today it is a sloppy mess out this way....rain and muck all over. After 4.5 hours of work we decided to call it a day and head back out tomorrow. However, we were doing a HUGE pond cleanout and got most of it done already

Seems like you are enjoying this job a lot more than your old job. Glad to see the enthusiasm in your work.
what is the mirror telling you these days?

How did you find out about your family crest? Is this a caucasian thing (no offense intended just curious)?

Man, it's been nasty in NW Florida the last few days...Well, I say nasty, but I love rainy weather. - I'd move to Seattle if they didn't just ban Cascade dishwasher detergent.
