    bike 20 mins - 5 miles in 16:30 & that included my 3 min warmup
    jogged 3 laps around track
    done

    all of the weights in the 'new' area are kilograms bumper plates......so I'll be referencing kilo's from here on out on legs. Todays weights I think I ****ed up the numbers, don't think I moved that much weight

    for cardio on the bike I'll start doing just the 5 mile sprint after warmup, easier to track progress, although theres no way of tracking tension but whatever.

    felt pretty good today, was spent by the end of it!

    Went to a house showing today, townhouse. Put an offer on it and it should go for sure! checked out another house before that one, would be a great fixer upper and flip, but I don't have enough capital kickin around right now for that. And with the cost of labour in McMurray I'd be dishing out ~$40K or so.

    weight 176 lbs - change room scale

    Good workout. Looks short but I played around with misc. lifts that I didn't keep track of.
    Next week Im going to get my BF% taken at the gym. My guess right now is <12%, cause even when I hit 8% last year I didn't really look 'ripped', As usual though I dropped my fat ridiculously quick. PPut in an extradonary effort and get an extradonary result. and to think that right now I can only train one week on and one week off!
    ****, the longer Im away from my job the more I hate that lifestyle, for my 7 days of work I pretty much don't exist in life, gone for 16+ hours a day, and the time home is spent getting ready for work, cursing, and sleepin for 6 hours max.

    On the Money note: stocks are up a bit, I figured they would be cause of China's bailout plan.........which is a genius one mind you.
    Houses - I pulled my offer 2 days ago on the house, I didn't like the fine print on the offere to purchase, it left a whole that I could be attacked from. I contacted my Realtor and told him how to write it but I'm having issue's getting him to do what I want.......pain in the ass, might just scrap him.
    Also dealing with work too on a financial aspect, already made my way to the top dog in Finance in the company and I'm fighting this issue to the end. In summary, they're charging me $1,400.00 a month for something that they are not allowed to do.
    Right now my plate is pretty much full!

    I didn't bother with cardio today, I'll hit a dedicated cardio day tomororrow instead. My body is feeling pretty beat up after 6 days of heavy workouts and cardio everyday!

    K, after many many hours and days of negotiations I finally opened my offer again to a townhouse I eyed up.
    Everything is now good on my behalf on the fine print and everything, so wrote the offer up and waiting for written acceptance......already had a verbal acceptance so ther should be no problems that come!
    I'll post the numbers once accpeted.

    Sleep has been on the ****in backburner agains.............6 hours combined in 90 hours or something sick like that! Just a few more drinks and I'll be able to pass out! lol

    But, a summary of my latest purchase, let me start by saying I pulled off a kickass set of conditions

    Purchase Price $453,000.00 Monthly Mortgage ~$2,300.00

    I got ALL furnishing included in the sale at NO cost to me,
    Also have the seller sign a Lease that HE will rent out the unit for 6 months at $4,400.00 monthly
    Original asking price was $465,000.00 and in Fort McMurray there is usually 1.5% max Negotiating room cause of the tight market conditions.

    So on month one I will be makin money, monthly cost all inclusive for the unit ar ~$3,300.00, So I'll be grossing $1,100.00 monthly from this property!

    Great workout, bench was very strong and 242lbs for 5 wasn't close to failor, could have got another rep but with no spot it would be too iffy. I forgot to work up to 1.5xBW today, oh well.
    Chins went well too.

    I think I'll be starting this up again in the mornings before work, and on non work days I hit the gym up. Conditioning is up so I should be able to handle the volume no problem. Also back to my chicken and rice 3 times a day at work, and back to working some overtime for now.
    Been doing a lot of thinking lately about everything from my investments, current market state, current work situation, to my life situation, and a bunch of other bull ****. So I think what I'll do for a while is work my 7 days straight, and come in for 3-4 days on my off days.
    Im still really glad I took the past 2 months off of overtime, I NEEDED that! Hell, when I work only straight time Im gone for 115 hours every 2 weeks.

    Good 'easy' workout. Didn't want to go all out cause I'm recovering from my no sleep the past few days, got 10 hours last night thanks to my Nyquil pills! haha
    next time the sprints will be better, I didn't have my shoes tied so i was scared of rolling my ankle on the corners! That would have sucked!
    Tomorrow is going to be light squats and single leg work. the following 2 days will be heavy stuff.

    Thanks Sylvia

    workout
    bike 10 min warmup
    squats went up to 95kgx5,5 125kgx1,3,3,3 135kgx1,1,4 75kgx10
    jumps onto platform about 30" high, a bunch....aabout 10 mins worth. Then I slowly got farther away from the box until I reached 70" from the platform and still did a standing jump onto it! I never played with jumping before but I was like a freakin frog! haha
    Megaset side bends with 45 plate 15,15,15
    jogging 12 laps around track - 2 kilometers
    bike 5 min warm - 5 min hard - 5 min cooldown
    done
    squats went pretty good, the 135kg is 300 lbs, and I did it for a single, then afterwords I figured if I can press that much why the hell can't I squat it good??? So the last go at it I cranked out 4 reps and holy **** my quads are now the weakest link! haha
    jogging went quite well too, that's the farthest I've gone straight since 2005!
    Did a bunch of stetching stuff at the end too.
    done
    weight 174 lbs changeroom scale!!! Whats with this!?!?!?!? Not 176lbs as per the past month plus, not even 175lbs!
