Week 2

Updates a bit late.  Anyways I've been keeping up with my workouts and diet.  No major gains in strength.  No significant change in weight, but what do you expect a week in.

Week 1- Mid Week Update

Just got done with second day of weight lifting for the week.  Feeling pretty good, about to go get something to eat.  I forgot to mention in previous post that I am also running 3 times a week.  Each time will be a moderate intensity 3 miles.  New personal best at DB bench of 90 lbs per side for 6 reps, I only managed one set though.

Basic Outline

Workout-  For the first month I'll be running a basic 3 day split.  I'll be doing compound movements like Bench, Military Press, Barbell Rows, Squats, Deadlifts, etc..  Workouts will last around an hour to an hour and a half depending on how busy the University gym is.  

Nutrition-  I'll be going with a 40/40/20 with my macro ratios, being 40 protein, 40 carbohydrates, and 20 fat.  Caloric intake will be +3700.  Filling the calories everyday is primary concern, closely followed by keeping the foods healthy.

Supplements-  I'm sticking with a pretty basic lineup of supp's right now. Whey protein twice a day on weight days, once on off days.  Multi Vitamin every day, along with fish oil everyday.  Finally, just to add a bit of finesse   I'm taking super pump 250.  Not vital to my diet or anything, it does help me make my workouts more intense.

New idea for blog

So I recently had an idea, instead of me posting boring uninteresting musings on here I'm going to change the subject content a bit.  I'll be combining this with another project of mine, my fitness venture.
I'm not an out of shape guy, but I'm not in immaculate shape, or even close for that matter.  I'm working on changing that and I'll be keeping updates on here.  The idea right now is to post weekly, because those who have done similar projects and updated daily seem a bit redundant, hearing about the same workout 20 posts in a row.  Monthly I will post the current pictures.
The plan is to start tomorrow and post the current picture and the basic outline of my nutrition, supplements, and workout.

Fall Break

Had two tests today, conveniently my head cold waited until today to turn into a full blown cold with headache accessory.  After taking said tests, it apparently alleviated enough stress to cure my cold.  To top the day off it's the beginning of fall break.  Feels good man.

Halo: Reach

Was anyone else seriously surprised at how good Reach was?  I'm not going to claim that it was a terrible game just because the series has been beat like a dead horse, I actually enjoyed the game.  In fact I'd say it's one of the top games in the series.  Just my opinion, I've heard plenty of praise and hate for the game.

The Laramie Project

Recently I watched The Laramie Project play.  I was thoroughly impressed.  Given the style it's written in, being entirely made up of interviews I was surprised at how well it flowed.  It was a bit long, but other then that highly entertaining and enjoyable.  Plus it is on a pretty controversial subject at the moment so kudos for that.

Friday post

Finally Friday, going back home for the weekend to spend a few days with the family.  Before I can leave though we are having a dorm safety and health inspection.  So far preparations for said inspection have included spaying the room down with febreeze(Brazillian Carnival to be specific), and that's basically it.  Despite this effort we still have the strange scent of cheese flavored popcorn looming in the room.

Woke up thinking it was Wednesday, didn't come to the realization it wasn't until I walked to the wrong class.  Good day so far.  I don't really have any musings for today yet so I'm just going to leave an IOU to my blog for the time being until I can actually come up with something semi-interesting, at least to me to update with.
Edit:  So I had the intent of adding something I deemed humorous and witty, but I sadly didn't have anything worthwhile happen.  The day redeemed itself with the amazing ice cream I had earlier, so all wasn't lost.

Math and Bioshock: Infinite

I've come to the realization that I have taken nothing away from my morning calculus class.  I've gone every day to simply sit there and stare blankly at my Prof.  I'm still passing the class, I'm simply just not doing anything during the actual class period.
On an unrelated note I've recently watched the trailer for Bioshock: Infinite.  I'm skeptical.  I don't have faith that it will be a good game, and I've been a Bioshock fanboy since the beginning.  I feel as though they're just taking the gameplay without really changing anything and simply imposing it into a different setting, that still seems to have a strong "Rapture" esque quality to it.  I feel as though they are insulting my intelligence a bit by simply painting the original game a different color and selling it back to me.

Edit: I just realized I originally posted it as Infinity, it is actually Infinite

Fire Alarm

Today I had the fortune of being in the dorms during a "Fire Emergency".  Abiding to the suggested precautions I exited the building via stairwell.   Once a safe distance from said building I noticed a man in a gorilla costume had also exited the building with us.  Good to see that primates abide to the regulations too.
