Tuxedo shopping

So today I came to the realisation that I have fallen off the wagon. On a good note, I have not gained any weight, but I have not lost any. I am going to re-invigorate this week I am setting a 3 lb goal for this week. I need to get going. 3 months and 2 weeks left. At a minimum I have 10 lbs to lose before the wedding, realistically I have 30 lbs to go till I am at my own “ideal” weight.
Today I had a great day with Chris. We went shopping for the grooms mans tux’s. I cannot believe we have almost finished the major wedding planning. The only thing left is arranging the limo / shuttle and to finalise the hotel for out of town guests. Its all coming together, and I am starting to get excited. 🙂

Great Day

So today was my first day in my new job, and it was awesome. Drove to Ma and met my team and everyone was great. Now I’m waiting for a prescreening of Tron with Chris, and TDC. Thanks Dawn!

Sore Shoulders

So I downloaded a new tracking sheet for P90x Lean program and updated all of my workouts. I realized that I basically had taken a number of days out doing other exercises. In fact I ran 5K in 27 degree weather, and finished in under 35 minutes. So I decided to go back and do week 4 again, which started with what is hands down the hardest workout for me … Yoga X. It is a grueling 90 minute workout that is hell on the shoulders and core. I did that workout Sunday and here I am on Tuesday and my shoulders still hurt. I persevered yesterday and did the Core Synergistics, and tonight after I digest my dinner a bit I will go down and do Kenpo X. Alas , I just realized that I have to do the Yoga X AGAIN this week. 🙁
Tomorrow, will be a busy day…Driving to MA…. Starting a new job…..and seeing Tron.

Feel like a new stage is beginning

So I was told I got my new job, I unofficially start on Dec 1 (Wed) and officially start on Dec 15. Tomorrow I have to start getting my transition in order, and start prepping for the new role. I know there is going to be a great deal of learning to ramp up. I have started doing some preliminary reading and it is going to be a great deal more technical than my current role. I will also be on the inside again, no more rich expense account and extravagant customer meals. On the flip side, I can be clear and honest, and feel good about what I am selling and making.
Although I was lax on my blogging, I did workout ever day. Yesterday was my P90x day off, so I opted to jog to my moms and back rather than drive to help her find some things online. Today started the 3rd week of P90x and the workout was Plyometrics, which seemed oddly bearable in comparison to previous times. I feel stronger, and my legs look great, I just need to find a way to lose the tummy and love handles naturally or medically. 🙂
This week will be interesting as I travel to D.C Monday night, so I will need to workout early, and then will need to bring the disks with me for Tuesday and Wednesday, and then do my Thursday workout when I get home Thursday night. I have decided that no matter how late, I get my workout done. In fact the other night I did my workout at 10 PM and then showered and went right to bed, and felt better for having done so.
The long weekend was a great refresh, and I feel recharged for this new stage of my career.

Sorry I’ve been lax

So I started up this blog and then have not posted for a while. Today its 2 days after Thanksgiving, and I have only missed one day of P90x, and that is because I ran that day. I enrolled in a 5K run for next weekend, so I need to start running out in the cold to condition my lungs. I live in a state of perpetual soreness, but I have faith it will pay off. Also of note I received news this week, that I received a new job I was interviewing for, I am the newest Product Manager for LotusLive (www.lotuslive.com). The job is going to be challenging in the beginning as I learn and ramp up, but I am looking forward to the challenge and the fun. I am off on a new adventure and I am excited and ready.
