Well it's the start of a New Year, bring it on! I had a great Christmas with family this year eating way too much and staying up way too late but sometimes you have to let lose a little. I have unfortunately not gotten in any training the first few days because of the hustle and bustle of the holiday and the last four days because I have not been feeling very well. My stomach is feeling "off" and I am feeling week and lethargic. I saw my doctor because I had an appointment regarding an unrelated issue. I brought up my symptoms and he told me to drink lots of clear fluids. I guess it sounds like I have something that is going around.
Since my last post about contemplating on getting rid of my gym equipment and replace it with a more "TACFIT" outfit I have decided to do it. I had to get over that "what if" feeling and move forward. I have full faith in RMAX and Coach Sonnon and I am willing to devote all of my training to the practice. I got a quote from RMAX 2x10lbs, 2x20lbs,2x25lbs,1x35lbs clubbells and it came to about $950, shipping will get us Canadian's every time! That was a little too steep for me given I will only have about $1200 to work with once I sell all my equipment. I am now waiting on a quote for 2x20lbs 2x25 clubbells and I think that will be more around what I am looking to spend. The company that sells Dynomax med balls and competition kettlebells are out of a few weights that I am looking for so I will have to wait until the end of January for them to come in. That's ok because it will take a bit of time for me to sell my stuff. I am looking at different options to make a pull up bar and ring attachments so that cost shouldn’t be too bad for those items
I posted an add just before Christmas on Kijiji (Canadian buy/sell) and I have gotten a lot of interest. I sold my lat pulldown and I am in the process of selling my squat rack. I will still have the bar/bench/weights and trees to sell. I have asked reasonable prices and so far I have gotten what I wanted for the items. It's amazing what some people will offer you though, I guess they go on the saying "all they can say is no." Oh well that's part of the fun in selling stuff privately.
I messaged Coach Murdock a few weeks before Christmas about possibly getting some CST lessons from him and I just received a private message on RMAX Forums from him last evening. He is on busy guy but we are going to try to set something up between February – April this year. I am pretty excited about that!
I think thats about it for the update, I am hoping to get back to training as soon as I am feeling better!
Oh ya I forgot one more thing, I got an Internet tablet on Boxing day. I guess you could say that was my Christmas present to myself. It is a cool toy to have and one reason I got it is so I can view the different Tacfit/Prasara videos when working out without having to transfer them to DVD. I was doing this before and it worked but using the tablet will be a lot more efficient. I also did a bit of modification to it so now I have access to extra apps and what not, I was pretty impressed with myself the figuring out the mods. I am pretty tech savvy but even that was a stretch for me.
