We now train two times a week in order to make up for a bunch of training sessions that were missed by our trainer. This is both good and bad. Good because it means we get better workouts twice a week. Bad, because I'm in more amounts of pain from said work out. However, I am getting more out of it, so in reality it's a good thing and worth the pain.

The past couple of days has been busy. Two friends came over and hung out for a bit. One of them is about to head to England for a few months (lucky bastard) and the other is heading back to Washington State since his Americorp Vista terms ran out. Lots of tasty food and good times were had while they were here.

Tomorrow brings a new lamb roast I want to try and shopping for a Secret Santa. Perhaps the gym as well if everything goes smoothly and doesn't take long.

Dear God, I've been away for a while.

So I've been gone for a bit. This is due to many reasons. Looking for work, taking care of my car, taking car of my dog, going back and forth from Indy to Richmond. Anyway, it's time to quit slacking and get back to eating right and losing weight.

First, I have to mention that I'm incredibly proud of the fact that for the first time since high school I'm able to fit comfortably in to a XL Hoodie. My mom recently went to England for job stuff and brought back a XL hoodie as a gift. After a few days of not bothering with it, since it was at least a size too small, it was cold enough to need it. I ended up saying "screw it, I might as well try it on" and did so. And it fit well!

So now I have a warm hoodie AND I fit back in to an XL again. Just to be sure, I tried on a couple of old shirts from high school and about half of them fit just fine! So this is a very good thing!

On to the second point.

I've been having some problems at training recently. I blamed it mostly on the slacking for working out but about 5 days ago I nearly passed out while training. I remedied this by doing more to keep up with exercise and taking vitamins to make sure I'm getting the right amounts of everything. So far it seems to be working since I was able to go through an entire training session and felt pretty good.

I know my muscles are going to hurt like hell tomorrow, but at least I was able to finish the session.

Third, Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I spent my Thanksgiving with two of my friends in Richmond and it was AMAZING. So much good food and good company!

Anyway, that's enough for now. Time for dinner.
