I had a big life event, not really something to discuss over this format, but the event has really made me want to focus on a few things.  I plan to make some "updates" to some of the person goals I have been working towards this year.  First and foremost and something I can share here is my workout schedule for the rest of the summer (at least until my birthday).

DAY Power Work1 Work2 Work3 Work4 Superset Cardio
Monday Bench Dips Steam Engine Push-up Push-Down Shoulder Superset Tabata Set
Tuesday Squat DB Front Sq DB MK Lunge Ball Pike Situps Leg Superset Treadmill
Wednesday Pull-up KBS Rows Back Fly Upright Rows Bicept Superset Tabata Set
Thursday Clean Dips Bench St. Eng. Cables Ball Squat Tricept Superset Treadmill
Friday Deadlift Chins Dead Curl Ball Pike Sq. Thrusters Uphill Walk Tabata Set


The goal is to incorporate some raw power lifting moves into my interval training workouts which have been so successful for me this year.  Provided I can stave off the injuries which I always seem to get from this type of workout, I hope to add back a little "good" mass to my frame.

The second goal to modify, which I can share here, will be to update my wardrobe (a little) ahead of being ready to buy a whole new wardrobe (I am still carrying ten extra pounds in the middle, keeping away from that 34 inch waist).  But I have to admit my work jeans look terrible (just too big), and I was dressed up most of this weekend, and I have to say... I like the way that Eric looks.  ;)

The other things I need to "update" are a little more personal and not right to share with the world but rest assured a little work there will be a good thing.

Have a great friggin day!

YOE - Update

So the Year of Eric had a great start.  I dropped 20 pounds, I got a new suit, and things were looking up.  Around late March I hit a stall and I haven't been able to shake it.  So after returning from my mini-vacation, which was basically ruined by 4 straight days of rain, I am back on the wagon and back in the game.

I am recommitting to my weight-loss plan and this time taking it up a notch.  I will thoroughly document the next 60 days with details, pictures, and notes with the goal of basically having a book on the matter written by the time I am done.  I don't have a number for the scale in mind, this time, but I do have a very detailed plan.

The book will fulfill another one of the YOE goals and I am trying to pick it back up on the others.  The nuts and bolts of the book will basically be a 60 day diary with images of everything I do and eat along with daily pics of me.  Nothing like embarrassing  yourself into success.
