And now for something completely different…

I was thinking about the end of my time at Auburn (*attempts Yoda voice* Fast approaching, the end of April is.) and looking at this site, its really just been a place for me to vent and use as a soundboard for school (I don’t think anyone other than the bots commenting on my posts have actually visited.)

Anyway, this got me thinking that I should expand its usage a bit more. I have enjoyed typing out my thoughts here on occasion, why not expand that to other facets of my life? So I’m doing just that. Introducing my first life blog post! (…And SCENE!)

Weightlifting!

I started a new ‘hobby’ about 6 months ago when I realized how overweight I was getting (its hard to stay slim when you sit in front of a computer all day and most of the night). I’ve been lifting weights to help combat that, and it has worked wonders. Ever since I left the Army I have had kind of the wrong attitude toward exercise (mostly because they MADE us do it; and at the most inopportune times no less … I’m looking at you 0-dark:30). I am trying to change that mind set.

Here is my 6 month progress report:

Total weight lost: 30lbs

Fat lost: 50lbs

Muscle mass gained: 20lbs

Current routine: PPL (Push, Pull, Legs)

I also just bought a Rogue fitness squat rack and olympic barbell/plates. I’m really getting into this!
