Pain does not exist in this dojo

This weekend I set up a little mini-dojo in our living room and thought I would post a quick picture of it.

A spoon full of cinnamon help the coffee go down.

I have never liked the taste of coffee so I have never been a big coffee drinker, but as I have been trying to cut down on the sugar free Red Bulls due to them emptying my wallet faster than I can fill it, I decided to give coffee with a spoon full of cinnamon a try. The verdict is that I love it. It somehow masks that awful coffee bite and made it quite enjoyable. so looks like I will get my caffeine fix in the mornings after all.

I'm in shape. Round is a shape....isn't it?

After two months off from various family issues, I am back on the diet again this weekend. I have slacked off on all aspects and have only been pretty good about doing kick boxing. I have scheduled a doctors appointment for a check-up and to talk about my lower back, but I am going to increase the intensity and frequency of my workouts. Not sure yet if I am ready for P90X, but gonna give it a try. will be doing the fitness test very soon and will post the results. In any case this post is just establishing the starts of it all.

The Diet Hits a Speedbump.

Over the past couple of weeks the diet has hit a bit of a speed bump as the plague moved its way through my family and I drank OJ by the truckloads to keep from getting sick. And although I think I did get a touch of it, I made it through without becoming bedridden like the rest of the house. But I started back on the diet yesterday and it looks like I didn't gain any weight, just stayed at around the 276 mark. Besides the OJ, Dinners are the main area where I blew it, so I am getting an idea of what my maintenance diet will look like one day.
