With everything... there is simple and complex

For the past few days life has felt very simple and then ten minutes later, very complex. We had our grand opening/ FGB this past weekend and should have some pictures up on the main site later this week. School has been busy with Robotics practice after school every day until 5 and then Rugby until 8pm. I have started reading "A Sand County Almanac" by Aldo Leopold. This book has allowed the complex to move toward the simple. I read it as part of my bedtime routine. Yes I'm 27 and have a bedtime routine. And Aldo really paints a picture of simple, calm life. Jordan put together the garden this past weekend and we hope to see plants very soon.
Lifting has been going well and the Brazos Valley Barbell Club is now official with USA Weightlifting. We are club # 4306!!! That it. I'll keep you posted with video soon.

No sleep, good beer and friends

Sleep has been really bad. Only around 7hrs a night, but on a good note... I shared a beer with Mark and Kevin last night! AMAZING.

The Haka

Training the A&M Rugby Team has been an amazing thing. 16 of the best rugby players call Jordan, Marshall and I ... Coach. I'm learning more and more about the game and this video gives me chills!

This week

This week has been crazy with school and Robotics (yes, I'm a nerd).
We have our 2009 Brazos Best Robotics Kick Off tomorrow and I will be "supervising" 20-28 middle school students from 8am to 2pm. I'll need a beer after this one...., but training has been good and my body has stopped hurting for the moment. Andrew Kilzer and Dale Smith have been training with me in the mornings and ... it feels good to have people to throw weight around with.
This weekend I plan to finish welding our pull-up system... WHAT... you weld?
My neighbor across the street has been teaching me how to weld..yes it is true! I have been welding and grinding and ... that sounds like a high school dance move?
Rick has been showing me the in's and out's of welding and I even have my own welding helmet! I'll post some pictures of our creation soon.

screw it!

Ya know... screw it... I'm not going to post my food! It takes to damn long to type this stuff and I eat to much. I still love you all, but I can't do it any more.....

P.S. I'm still doing the hard routine... , but my friend Dutch inspired me to lift heavy and now I have a group of people that I've tricked into doing it with me... at 6am!

the quarry

The weekend was great. Taylor and Rachel came into town and we went to First Friday's in downtown Bryan. Dutch also was in town and came to throw some weight around today.
I won't post my eating over the weekends (to much to post and I'm never at the computer), but will post my workouts.
Friday: Fight Gone Bad = 341
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Oly Max --- Snatch = 165lbs --- C&J = 215lbs

Monday will start the first annual meeting of the Brazos Valley Barbell Club. We will start a strength cycle from Performance Menu. We will be meeting M,W,F at 6am. Right now Andrew K, Dale S, Jordan M, and myself are the only members, but we will grow as needed. We will have a website up this week so that we can track our progress.
