First two weeks of work in the books. One of my bosses said good start so that means something.
Went to the gym after work to test out my blister. It’s not as bad as a few days ago, but still annoying and sore. It didn’t really limit my motion, but it limited how hard I could go.
Hopefully my blister will heal soon so I can get into shape and buy a suit for these upcoming weddings I gotta go to.
I’ve changed my diet too. For breakfast I’ll have some eggs and hash browns and hot sauce. Then for lunch and dinner I’ll have brown rice, grilled chicken, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cheddar cheese and pita chips. I’m going to try and limit my cheat meals too and if I have a cheat meal I’ll make sure I walk around to burn off those extra calories.
Might be adventuring into NYC tomorrow with a friend. If she comes to visit I’ll defiantly be having a cheat meal. If she doesn’t visit, I’ll be at home studying like a nerd.
Got my new bags that I bought myself for Christmas for being such an awesome person this year. Also had to get them because Santa can’t keep up with me. I move around too much.
I got a backpack for the gym and a messenger type bag for work. I used them both today for the first time. They are pretty awesome.
The gym bag is OGIO International X-Train 2. I got the black and silver model. It’s pretty awesome. What sold me was it has a compartment for my shoes that is separate from the rest of the bag. I can fit all my gym clothes and sneakers in there and still have room.
The work bag is a Timbuk2 Command Laptop Messenger Bag. I got it in what they call Carbon Full-cycle twill. I just use this for my laptop and papers. It wasn’t too hard carrying both around the city, subway and bus.
I went into work today for another hangout session. I was there for 6 hours. My only fuel was 2 pop tarts from breakfast. I didn’t realize I didn’t eat until after the gym. I just wanted to absorb all the knowledge I could.
Speaking of the gym, I did back and biceps. The gym is in the middle of a renovation so I didn’t wear my heart monitor so not sure how many calories I burned.
I was there at least an hour. They should be done with renovations according to my friend that works there by middle of January. I’m sure it will look amazing.
After the gym I got some food cause I was pretty hungry. I walked around the corner and got myself a fat Chipotle burrito. Needed the calories for my gainz.
Don’t have work again until next Tuesday. Going to some friends for Christmas Eve and for Christmas Day. I’ll try to take some pictures of the food I’ll be eating.
If I don’t, have a great Christmas Internet people.
Went into work today for a few hours to meet my future coworkers and to see day to day operations.
It wasn’t super busy, but I got some good experience and it was really fun. I think I have a lot to learn to do well there, but I have the potential and I’m ready for the challenge.
It wss rainy most of the day. It was raining after work. I didn’t feel like walking in the rain to the gym I normally go so I went to the one closer to work. It was really nice looking, but it was so dark inside. It felt like I was in a club. Lots of neon lights, it messed with my head. So I’m just going to stick with my regular gym and just walk the extra blocks as extra cardio.
Today I did chest, triceps and shoulders.
Woke up so earlier than usual this morning. I was awake at 7am and rolled out of bed at 8am. Today was orientation at my new job. It was like Christmas eve last night. Couldn’t get any sleep. I was also really full from lunch with my grandparents.
So I got outta bed and got ready. I was at work 45 minutes early and that’s with me getting off the train 2 stops before hand and walking. I got off before cause the train was skipping a bunch of stops.
Orientation was pretty good. Just gave me the low down on what tools they use and how things work. I’m going back on Thursday to hang out and see day to day operations.
After that I walked up to 38th and worked out. Today was a scheduled off day, but since I haven’t been going to the gym at all I went to give myself a boost. I did back and biceps with 20 mins of cardio on elliptical.
After the workout I went and got some Popeyes because I’ve been craving it for some odd reason.
It wasn’t as good as I wished it was. But craving squashed.
That was basically my day. Sent out a bunch of holiday cards over the weekend and I got my first few today. They were the first two official pieces of mail that I’ve gotten at my new place since moving. I’m not counting amazon packages.
Got some new socks last night. I signed up for some monthly fresh socks again. Figure I might as well since I got myself a new job.
So there are some sweet regular socks in there and some promotional no show socks.
I also went on an adventure into Queens to have some lunch at a Filipino place (Krystal’s Cafe) with my aunt. It was pretty good. Will definitely have to hit it up again. It is a nice place to get Flip food.
Then after eating all the food I went back to the city and worked out. I haven’t been to the gym in over 4 months so course it was chest day. I couldn’t lift as much, but it is a good base line.
The gym was pretty busy, but I didn’t have to wait super long for anything. Overall I’m pleased with the place.
Then my final adventure for the day was to hit up Spanish Harlem and say hello to the grandparents.
Today was a good day. This city life is exciting. Hopefully it won’t be too busy when I finally start my job.
I think I might have overworked my left shoulder. It might just be sore, but I’m going to lower the weight and monitor myself. Hopefully it was just an off day and I was sore.
Baaaah. Late night gains post. Totally forgot. Might be skipping the gym tomorrow. It was a good day at the gym though.
Back and biceps with two scoops. The gym was packed today. Luckily I was able to get the workout done with little downtime. My muscles are definitely torn up in a good way.
The gym definitely my therapy. I can just put on my headphones and just zone out. I forget about all the stress and just lift. Well the two scoops of preworkout might help too, but just knowing it’s a lift day gives me something to look forward to.
Back on that 2 scoop hype. Team Invisible Fire Ants. Today hit some new PRs. Now I just need to figure out how to keep working out and afford to eat healthier.
