View Full Version : It's So Lonely 'Round the Fields of Athenry...

10-26-2004, 12:54 PM
Where to begin? I find myself in almost the same place as I did this time last year. Slacking, wasting away, weak! Although a few things have changed for the better. I finally got that elusive chick Ive been looking for. She's really great and couldnt ask for a better gf. So I kinda have some motivation now to get back into lifting. I think this time around though I wont focus so much on bulking. My bulking experiment last year worked well. I put on about 20lbs from November 2003-Spring 2004. But I couldnt keep that pace up. Eating became difficult and expensive and that kinda got me down. Most of my money now is being used up to pay for the car/insurance and going out. I still feel the need to get back in the gym atleast and work on strenght etc the best I can.

I also realized how valuable this site is to keeping up my motivation. I had a alot of great people that followed my progress on here (wikked, bruteman, wibble, CH, Soba, cp, aka, and many others). Im really greatful for the support and info these and other provided to me since Ive been on this site.

So I hope with this new journal I can get back into lifting a bit more regularly. I know I wont be able to bulk back upto 170 or more where I once was, but I dont think I can offord that sort of endevour again. But I can say that I will hit the gym on a regular basis. I will regain strength. I will post my workouts, quips, quotes, ramblings, banter, and general poppycock for all to see on the boards and for those who care to read.

So, hello once again, WBB. IM BACK! :D

P.S.- Y2A is teh suck...;)

Well......I have had alot of strength loss as expected. Something to work on though. I feel good though and I think I can regain some of the strength quickly.

So last weekend I stayed over my girls house.....when I woke up saturday morning I found the taillight kicked out of my new car. YAY! So, I have no idea who it is. I think it may have been one of her housemates. She lives with a bunch of people and she doesnt get along with this one dude. A real dumbass. Regardless, Im now setback close to 150 bucks in the worst case. Hopefully I can find a used one......ugh.

I still can't get used to hearing about a gf in your journal.

10-28-2004, 12:51 PM

10-28-2004, 12:59 PM
October 28, 2004 Rest

I think Thursdays are going to be rest days for me. I usually go out with my friends after work and hit up the restraunt/bar where the gf works. We hang out there till she gets off then usually go do some dancing........and other stuff :hump: :D

Tomorrow is Shoulder Day.....cant wait. Im feeling good again.

P.S.- My uncle found some taillights online that are alot less ($40-$60) than the dealership was asking for ($165). So Ill have to order one of those up and see if the old man and I can put it in. Anyone have experience with this? Is it difficult? Just hope it doesnt happen again. I enjoy staying over her house, but I cant sink money I shouldnt have to into needless projects like new taillights.

10-28-2004, 02:46 PM
Thats all.........Go Sox! Eventhough I hAet Pedro and Manny. Id like to see those sorry bastard give it to the Bambino and 86 yrs of nothing. Plus Y2A is an old sk00l chowdahead :D

10-28-2004, 07:16 PM
Kinda sound like John Kerry too, keeping up with teh whole MA thing. "I was a Pats fan before I was a Bucs fan, but Im still a Pats fan!" ;)

Actually went on a friday night afterwork and before the gf and I went out. The weightroom was completely empty so I was free to do what I wanted. I like it that way. Noone getting in my way. Choked down about 8oz of chicken afterwards. Had a good night and the car made it through the night at her house in one piece. No more kicked in taillights! w00t :D

Nice session.

Got to keep you out of trouble bro, lol...fine shoulder effort - stay with it.

11-01-2004, 08:06 PM
Spent the whole day in Mentor (gfs hometown). Hung out with her for most of the day. Played some ball too. Good news we won 29-0 (unlike my flag team, who lost 0-27). I had a TD and some nice catches. But I think I broke/bruised my ring finger pretty good. So I dont think Ill be able to do much lifting this week. Prob leg day though. Ill try to get that in........ugh :( My finger is all black and swollen around the knuckle by the nail.

11-02-2004, 01:46 PM
Good shoulder session Mike-san.


11-03-2004, 07:47 AM
Tough break with the finger :(

You can ride the red river, just dont drink from it.

That is all.

11-08-2004, 09:08 AM
Garcia throws to Shea in the end zone... I think he's got it!! No!! It deflects off his hands and falls into the arms of Ed Reed who races 106 yards down the sideline for a game clinching TD!!!!!!!

Browns 3-5 like the Bucs ;)

11-08-2004, 09:17 AM
A work out....no HCR.... hhmmmm.....must be the wrong journal!
1 finger stop you from working out? C'mon man suck it up soak it in cider it'll be all better and you can go lift after PIMP!

11-08-2004, 10:10 AM
He is too busy having sex with his GF, leave him alone ;) :hump:
