New Dad?

I’ve started P90X three times before, I think, with this being my fourth.  The longest I ever went was three weeks, and after week three you move on to a different set of videos.  Well, today I did the X Stretch workout for the first time.  There were a few stretches that really pushed me, but I’m pretty flexible and didn’t feel like I got as much out of it as I do all the other workouts.  That’s not a knock on it, because I did feel it was useful.  I just didn’t work up a sweat or anything. And to clarify, I’m not doing the workouts six days a week; only five.  Add in that I missed a week …

Working Out with Kevin

Yesterday, Kevin Millard invited me to try out a workout that he was going to check out himself this morning.  It’s a company with a mobile gym that sets up on different mornings at different parks and does various intense workouts.  I might him at his house this morning and he, his brother-in-law Daniel, and I went to do it. Okay, I haven’t worked out in a while, but I have done P90X here and there.  The workout they were doing today was upper and lower body with a bit of a core workout thrown in.  Each exercise was thirty seconds and you ended up doing them twice.  The first thing I did was a sled push, which seemed easy …

Labor Day Weekend 2012 Day 3

Up with Milly around 6:30. Amy brought Eli and Ada over just as breakfast was starting this morning. Milly shouted in the living room that she was going to marry Eli. Eli turned to someone and said, “Milly’s going to marry me.” They stayed for a few hours. A bunch of us went out surfing after eating. The surf was pretty fun with easy to catch waves. The sets were spread a bit, so it was easy to get back out too. When I got out from surfing Amanda told me Milly had had a bit of a meltdown and was inside, so I went in to check on her and get some lunch. After a while I bribed her …

Labor Day Weekend 2012 Day 2

Sleeping with Milly in the bed wasn’t all that bad, really. She slept diagonally and had her head on my knee for most of the night, so I didn’t feel like I could turn over or move very much. Most of the night went fine. Amanda said Milly had a conversation in her sleep when she went to bed. The only hitch was when Milly woke up around 5:00 pooping. We took care of her, but I don’t think she slept much after that. Amanda got up with her at 6-something. Michael came up to borrow a blanket from us then too. The downstairs, where he was sleeping in the entryway on an air mattress, was a lot folder than …

Michael Phelps has the Most Medals

Went to the store again today and this time it went a lot better than yesterday.  We walked around a bit, Milly telling me she wanted to push a small shopping cart around.  Got to eat a doughnut while sitting outside together. I was just thinking, if not for Milly and the knowledge that she’ll wake up sometime between 7 and 8 in the morning, I could give myself all sorts of odd working hours.  Probably for the best that it’s not that way. Feel like I’m all over the place with some websites.  For many of them I’m at the point where I’m waiting for feedback or content, so I’m able to work on some of the smaller jobs, …
