Weekly Review - 8/20/2006

I completed two weightlifting workouts and three cardio sessions. On Monday, I took off from work and put some driveway sealer on my driveway. On Saturday, I put on a second coat of driveway sealer. I was in a hurry to put on the second coat, so I did not put sunscreen on my arms. My right arm got sunburned right where the elbow bends. It is red, hopefully it will not blister. Here are my bodyweight readings from 8/22/2006: weight=144.5 lbs, bodyfat=9.0%, water=71.5%.

Weekly Review - 8/13/2006

I completed two weightlifting workouts and two cardio sessions. I felt blah the week of the 13th. My knee felt unstable most of the week. When I keep up with my workouts, the knee does not feel unstable. Later.

Weekly Review - 8/6/2006

I lifted weights 3 times, one extra cardio session, and I mowed the lawn once. I did not work all bodyparts. I missed working my biceps and triceps. Even though I did complete more cardio last week, my stomach still has a little bulge to it. My shirt size is a tight medium or a loose large. I am in between sizes. All of my size 32 inch pants are loose on me, but I still have a little belly. I even think that my shoe size has gotten smaller. For dress shoes, I wear a size 9, size 9 1/2 seems too big for me. For athletic shoes, size 9 1/2 is good for me, size 9 is too tight. It sucks being in between two sizes. Do I need two separate wardrobes? Anyway, I should go now.

Right Elbow Tingle

When I woke up in the middle of the night on Saturday/early Sunday, my right elbow felt like it fell asleep. I have not had this tingly feeling for quite a while. It is almost the same feeling when you hit your funny bone. The last time I felt this way was probably five or more years ago when I was lifting heavy. Saturday afternoon, I spent some time spraying some grass/weed killer on weeds located between concrete blocks and the edge of my driveway. The grass/weed killer has a trigger sprayer handle where you use your hand to grip, squeeze, then release the handle. I made sure that I alternated hands during the spraying. I also completed my back workout. The combination of the two activities must have contributed to the numbness in my elbow. I will monitor and hopefully it will clear up.

Sam's Club, Mt Nebo Point Drive, KOHS Class of 1981

Sorry for the deception, but the easiest way for me to get hits on my blog is to post about Sam's Club in the North Hills, now located at Mt. Nebo Point Drive. I am actually trying to see if anyone from the Keystone Oaks High School Class of 1981 will read this. If so, please read my post about a possible 25 year high school reunion, click here

I receive numerous visits to my blog for people searching for information about Sam's Club in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Sam's Club moved from McKnight Rd to 289 Mt Nebo Point Drive. Here is a summary of the four posts I have published to help you find the place.

Weekly Review - 7/30/2006

I managed to complete 3 workouts and mowed the lawn one day. I worked all bodyparts except my triceps. Since recovering from my cold and working late one week to complete a project, I have not kept track of the amount of sleep I am getting as well as after work nap times. Yesterday, I woke up earlier than usual and worked late. I did not get enough sleep time and no after work nap. Today I took a nap after work, but I still felt tired, so I only completed a cardio session, no weights. I have been keeping track of my bodyweight. Here are my readings from yesterday: weight=144.5 lbs, fat=8.5 %, water=72%. Compared to the three weeks that I did not work out, my bodyweight is back down as well as my bodyfat.

High School Buddy

One of my old high school buddies contacted me through I was quite surprised to hear from him. We probably hung out together in high school for about 2 or 2 1/2 years. We lost touch with each other after high school. The last time I spoke to him was at our 5 year reunion 20 years ago. I am curious why he contacted me after 20 years. He asked for my e-mail and telephone number. Did he get sentimental and decide to reach out to old high school buddies? Is he recruiting for Amway? He did send me a lengthy e-mail telling me his life story for the past 25 years, condensed of course. I will e-mail him back. I am still puzzled by this though.

Weekly Review - 7/23/2006

I worked out three times last week and mowed the lawn once. I missed my leg workout though. I worked late two nights trying to complete a project deadline. I was surprised I was able to fit in three workouts. The downside was that the interior of my house is a real mess, a true bachelor pad.
