    Been gone for a bit. Been taking care of moving business. The move is all done. We're all moved in but still need to unpack.

    Here is the view from the back yard.


    Here is my new weight set.


    More weights.


    The hill sprint area.


    I wish I could say the food has been primal during the move, but I can't. Had a 3 day road trip that was pretty bad, but I staying good now. Tonight wasn't great because Mom-in-law was cooking. Pulled pork and mashed potatoes. The sauce for the pork was basically ketchup and brown sugar, and the mashed potatoes had margarine instead of butter. I'll see if i can't educate them, but I doubt they will listen. They aren't very adaptable and fear change.

    Looks like you'll have the heavy lifting and sprinting taken care of! Looks like lots of space for the kids, too. Glad the move's over and you're settled in, man.

    The new place looks like a wonderland for your workouts man. Glad you got there safely and are settling in.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Thanks everyone. The move went well, and everyone is settling in. Unpacking, however, sucks ass. It seems we have more stuff than places to put it. Oh well, we'll figure it out.

    Haven't had a real workout in almost 2 months(with the exception of moving boxes), so today i went out and did something. Nothing crazy, I want to be able to move in the morning. Warmed up with some stretching and mobility stuff, and then took a walk with the little one, wife, and dog before starting.

    Today's workout:

    Using a brick for weight - 3 repetitions of 5 front squats, 5 overhead presses, 5 push-ups(close grip on the brick)
    1 minute rest
    10 pull-ups(on a tree branch - no pull-up bar yet)
    1 minute rest
    repeat with brick
    1 minute rest
    10 pull-ups
    1 minute rest
    repeat with brick
    1 minute rest
    10 pull-ups

    about 2 minute rest

    3 laps jumping up and down from stone to stone around the fire pit(stones are used for seats and range from 12-24 inches tall)
    1 minute rest
    2 more laps around the fire pit

    Felt good to workout again. It has been too long. After I took cold shower to cool down, and to make sure I don't get too sore later. Cold showers up here are much colder than in Florida. Down there it was only cold for a minute and then warmed up. Here it is COLD. I imagine as the temps drop it will get even colder.

    Staying good food wise. Dinner was salad and hamburgers, breakfast was bacon and eggs. All is regular store brand stuff, but it will do for know. Had to use regular whole milk in my coffee which kind of sucks. Mother in law doesn't have cream(I'll have to rectify that). I thought I saw some sticks of butter in the fridge and got excited, but as I pulled them out I saw where the package said Vegetable Oil Spread...Grrrrrr.

    Today's workout:

    Hill Sprints - I estimate it at about 50 to 60 meters up the hill

    2 slow paced to warm up
    5 full sprint(catching my breath as I walk slowly back down the hill)

    10 push-ups, 5 pull-ups X 3

    Quick workout today, but those sprints took a lot out of me. My legs were pretty wobbly at the end.

    Getting ready to fire up the fire-pit and do some outdoor cooking. Burgers for me, and hotdogs for the rest.

    Today's workout:

    Warm-up of carrying a kettlebell and Bulgarian bag out into the field where I workout.

    2 sets each side of 5 KB Swings, 5 high-pulls, 5 snatches, 5 clean and press, and 5 lunges
    Chin-ups, 3 x 10
    Push-ups, 3 x 20
    Thrusters(with a cement block, around 60 or so lbs) 2 x 10
    Bulgarian bag squats, 2 x 15
    ...and the hardest part of the workout was carrying the kettelbell and the bulgarian bag back to the garage.

    i am doing the chin-up/pull-ups on a big tree branch. the thicker grip gives a hell of a grip workout.

    5 push-ups, 2 pull-ups, 5 cement block thrusters

    Plyometric jumps around the fire pit stones

    Short workout, but intensity was high. I was pretty spent at the end. Took a cold shower to cool down. No breakfast in the morning so I had bacon eggs ans a banana foe lunch. Now we are off to take the kids to a birds of prey show at the park. Should be fun.

    We all had a fun day today. The birds of prey thing was fun. The oldest was interested for the whole thing, but the little one wanted to go for a walk about halfway through(not bad for a 4 year old I guess). All the kids were thrilled they got to see a bald eagle poop.

    After we went to the playground. The little was already there playing with another little girl. I'm glad the kids are able to make friends easy in this area. In South Florida the kids were just weird and antisocial. Our timing was good since the other little girl had to go home just as we got there, so her sister and I took over having fun with her. They wore me out pretty good. I was still a little fatigued from the morning workout, but I couldn't resist climbing on the monkey bars and playing a good game of tag. If I give them a good head start I really have to sprint to catch them.

    We decided that since it was such a nice day we would cook outside. Hotdogs over the fire for the kids, and steaks for us once the wood burned down to good hot coals for cooking over. One minor irritation though: I had taken the steaks out to sit on the counter to bring them up to room temperature before putting them on the grill. My mother in law saw them out and put them back in the fridge. She thought "Oh no! You can't leave meat out!" I realize that she doesn't know the first thing about cooking and wouldn't know what to do with real food if she ever saw it, but don't EVER touch my steaks.

    Here are the steaks cooking. This is much better than indoors.


    And they tasted awesome.

    I like the animal cut-outs on the side of the grill. I couldn't make them all out, but I thought how cool it would be if you could cook meat from all those animals. Almost like the grill being a totem, calling those animals to it.
    Yes, I am a little weird.
