Update: Looking back, there is really nothing funny in tonight’s post. My apologies. I will try to do better tomorrow.

Short post, I’m exhausted. Here’s why:

That doesn’t include the morning exercise either because I forgot to put the Nike Fuel thing on my wrist this morning until like 7:30.

Noon Hoops is the first spike in the graph up there, and my league basketball game is the second. Good stuff. After that I went up to the YMCA and did my leg workout.

Squatted the bar 10 times, 135 5 times, 195 5 times, and 200 5 times.

My legs already feel like noodles.

I’ve decided to make a deal with myself regarding this week. Since Nike tells me that 3000 Fuel Points is an active day, and 5,000 is a very active day, if I hit 6,000 Fuel Points every day, I’m going to go see Jack Reacher this weekend. I’m going to add 250 points for every 15 minutes of swimming, because the wristband isn’t waterproof. No 6,000 every single day…No Jack Reacher this weekend. Look at how sweet this movie looks:

Heck yes!

I went to work, noon hoops, back to work, clocked out at 6, went to play my game, went to the gym, got home at 8:30, showered and ate a delicious roast beer sandwich with pepperjack cheese, and started writing this.

I literally have no time to do anything else today except sleep. While the working out stuff is paramount this month, I really need to get after these other goals of playing a song on the trumpet and juggling! Tomorrow night, don’t let me not juggle. Deal? Deal.

RAOK! I was on my way up to Stevensville today for an estimate, stopped at the gas station, and held the door for the pepsi driver who had a bunch of stacks of bottles on his pushcart. He hit the curb awkwardly and lurched forward and I was able to grab the top two cases as they were toppling over, saving him some embarrassment.

The look on his face was:


Not so much an act of kindness as an act of pure athletic cat like reflexes, but we do what we can.

Today, I’m thankful for my education. I read so many things on the web that are just so poorly worded and flat out ignorant, I’m very glad that at least I think I’m decently educated. Sometimes I do good on when I types stuff.

  1. I’m pretty sure your fuel band doesn’t give you nearly enough love for squats. Well, that is assuming you get below parallel. If you don’t, it should take away points!
