HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES!!!
God bless you guys for protecting not only mine and my families freedoms but also those of the world. With out you Earth as we know it would fall into chaos.
So, our new president elect has been chosen.
To be honest with you guys, I'm afraid. Afraid for our military, afraid for our country, afraid for the world. Obama does two things to me. He inspires me, and he terrifies me. His courage, his honor, his discipline, and his ability to stand against all those who hate him command a level of respect that he deserves. He has stirred up the masses with his hope. His change. He has awaken the youth of this nation to realize that they are apart of the future and in that must do what is not only a duty but their right. That is to vote. For that, he commands a level or respect.
However, his policies that he promises us will "change" our nation terrify me. We are already on the brink of economic melt down. We are teetering on the very edge of uprise or depression. With his proposed tax increases and such, that will surely push us over the edge into the next depression. It's not a matter of opinion or hate. It's a matter of cause and effect. Taxing the big companies will have an immediate and dramatic effect on the lower tiers. We as the middle class will be devastated by that. Again, its a matter of cause and effect.
Oh there will be change alright. It's just not going to be the change a lot of America was hoping for.
Our military will suffer big time. With proposed spending cut backs at the minimum of 25%. Our military is about to hit hard times and I mean all branches of the military. With Obama's proposed policies and promises he'll bring about another Clinton era within the military. I think its safe to say that we all know how horrible that was and if you don't and you disagree, then you need to research and enlighten yourself. Clinton all but destroyed our military and Obama is promising the same path.
His proposed pull back in Iraq means that our children will have to finish the war for us. Terrorism has won, will flourish, and will spread. With out us breathing down their necks, they will yet again aim to strike back at us.
It's only a matter of time. We saw it with Bush Sr. He failed to finish the job the first time around, and look what happened. 9/11
Now Bush Jr. has had the opportunity to eradicate them once and for all and we're so close, but now we'll pull out yet again with only but a few steps away from victory. Mark my words folks, this will be a decision that will haunt America until that day arrives and we are thrust back into yet another war on terrorism.
It just dawned on me that I hadn't come up with weekly schedule. I decided that I'd spread the days out so I'd have at least one day of recovery in between. So my schedule will look like this.
Monday - Chest and Arms
Tuesday - Run 3 miles
Wednesday - PT
Thursday - Run 1.5 miles
Friday - Legs and Back
Saturday - Run 1 mile
Sunday - Calves and Abs
The miles I'm sure will differ depending on how hard PT was that week. If my legs are insanely sore, the miles will be less, if not I'll increase the miles to make them sore, haha.
Keep in mind our PT's are Cross fit workouts so we work each muscle group.
On another note. I just finished Monday's exercises and I must say..........WOW!!! The arm pump you get from that simple workout is incredible. I literally looks like my arms just got an extra inch added in muscle. I kid you not, I am extremely shocked. So with that said, you guys should most def. give that a try.
Today's the day folks. In one hour I will be starting my new training regime. It's gonna be hard, tiring, stressful, and a sore adventure. BUT, most of all its gonna be fun. I know I know, it sounds crazy to think that but I can't wait. It's gonna be all worth it and its also going to show some huge results. So here we go.
My body stats as of Monday, November 3rd:
Weight - 152lbs
Fat - 10.2%
Muscle - 46.3%
Water - 62.2%
B% - 21.9%
Caloric Intake Average - 1780
First, I'm surprised by my stats. Back in July I weighed around 165 and had quite a bit more muscle, but I went on a break and got stuck on break, lol. So I have pretty much lost what I had worked to get. Such are the dangers of "taking a break". So if you ever decide to take a break, set a limit. Make it a week, two weeks tops.
Second, I'm still surprised hahaha. However, all of that is fixing to change.
Well tomorrow I'll be starting my new work out regime. These last two PT's have over worked me in a bad way to the point were I couldn't exercise the next few days. That's bad but its not the PT's fault. It's mine. Obviously I'm not doing either enough or the right exercise. So I'll be mixing the 3 day work out plan with the Wednesday PT sessions.
Tomorrow I will post a few pics of my start figure. I'll also post my stats as far as weight, body fat percentage, etc. In doing this I can keep visual and data track of my progress and also you as my readers can follow my progress. You will also be able to see the first hand effect of these excercises as proof that they work.
Each month I will post new pictures and new stats for you to see. I'll also post my start reps for my exercises tomorrow and will keep track of those as well.
So check back here tomorrow for the start of this new adventure. And wish me luck. The first couple of weeks will be hell.
