October In The Books...

This week seemed to really drag for some reason. Had a good time taking Gracie trick or treating, she was a fairy this year and got lots of candy. Will post pics this week.

This weekend I spent some time actually working. I had a large report that had to be completed by this morning and I didn't get much time during the week to work on it. Glad that is done. I also got some good quality time with Gracie. Saturday morning we got up around 8:30 and went down to McDonald's and had breakfast together, what fun. We then went down to the local auto parts store to just look around, she loves the auto parts store, too funny. I enjoyed the daddy daughter time very much.

Playing hookie from school on Thursday night means that my midterm is going to be tomorrow night, which I'm not ready for but then again I never feel ready for test. I did some studying this weekend but not nearly enough, somehow the time with my family was just more important to me. Looking forward to getting some good studying in tonight in my other class since we do have another test on Wednesday. Shouldn't be too bad though.

My diet on Saturday and Sunday was horrible. Sunday being worse the Saturday. I pigged out on Pizza last night while watching football. I also dove in on the candy and had a nasty McDonald's breakfast. Oh well back to the healthy eating this week. No worries. I have yet to get any kind of decent running in but hopefully that will change this week.

As far as workouts this week just two strength training sessions again. Been working on muscle strength and endurance utilizing different modalities. One that I found real challenging was using the BOSU ball. Man, what a workout that was, I was whipped after that one. It really works on your balance and you can do strength and endurance muscle training with it. I thought I had some strength until I did that workout!

Well, off to start another week of fun. My brother-in-law, his wife and two kids fly in from LA on Wednesday and Gracie is excited about paying with her cousins. Two test and a full week of work are on my list of things to do. I'm going to try and get two 3 mile runs in this week, gotta start back somewhere. Make it a great week! - Jason

I think all bets are off in terms of nutrition around Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It just means you have to be extra good inbetween...sigh. I wish bad food wasn't so good! :)

Good luck on the test!

As we enter the "eating season" be diligent, Jason. You've got a lot going on. Keep up the good work.
