Getting my act together...

Yeah, the title says it. I need to get my act together! I need to start posting on a blog again - to say I've been slacking is the understatement of the century. I haven't posted on my old blog since early December. Pathetic!

I need to get my ass back in the gym too. I went precisely 0 times last week, and once so far this week. I should be going 3 times a week, minimum. At least I've gotten back into biking though, so its not all bad. I'm not really losing any muscle but maintaining isn't my goal. You don't get bigger and stronger lifting once a week. This whole year has been spotty for me and I'm sick of it. I've been letting school and lack of sleep get in the way of time at the gym - neither is an acceptable excuse. I've got to pull it together and do what I want to do - lifting's just too important to me to continue to let it slide.

Finally, I need to get my school work back together. I've been slacking bad with my reading. Sure, I'm not missing any classes, and I'm fairly on top of the material, but I've been blowing off reading and in general not been quite as prepared as I usually am. I guess a little of that is normal your last semester, but I've taken it a little too far. I've just got ZERO motivation, and when the Olympics have subjected you to 4+ hours of TV a day it doesn't make it easy!

So, how do I plan to pull it together? Well, this new blog addresses the first issue. Think of it as a fresh start. Hopefully I'll keep up with it this time. For my fitness goals, well, I've got a new program planned. I'll be lifting heavy 3x a week, running once a week and mountain biking once a week. I'd like to add a light lifting day for 4 lifting days total, but we'll see how it goes time wise. With school work, the Olympics are almost over and spring break starts March 3. I think a week off to rest will do me some good - hopefully I'll come back and be ready to get back on the ball.

Now you know what's going on with me.. pretty boring huh? :). That's all for now, I'm out!
