Last night I had a dream…

…well two actually…but I won’t go in depth about the one involving Cerie from 30 Rock. All I’ll say is something happened that she doesn’t exactly like, but she respects when it’s done well. ;)

The other one though…the one I will do into some detail about…was about basic training. Go figure right?

Well it’s not as bad as you’d expect. While I absolutely hated it while I was there, living and breathing it as a dumb 18 year old. Reflecting, and in turn dreaming about it, as a mature* 25 year old offers a brand new perspective on the training and how it affected my mental toughness. [click to continue…]

Happy St Patricks day dummies!

In celebration of this great and very “authentic” holiday I created a simple and fun way to get your days worth of training in while out getting hammered-drunk.

THE WORKOUT:
5 reps for every…
-Kiss me Im Irish shirt, button or tattoo.
-Time someone mentions their trip to Ireland that they’re planning.
-Green beer you drink

10 reps for every…
-Guinness you drink
-Time you hear someone talk about their Irish heritage.

25 reps for every…
-Shot of Jameson taken.
-Shot of Jameson turned down.
-Fake irish accent you hear

50 reps for every…
-Ginger you talk to.
-Irish car bomb you take.
-New person you meet whose last name starts with O’.

75 reps (and a picture sent to me) for every…
-Irish car bomb taken with Jon Jameson while wearing a “kiss me I’m Irish” T-shirt.

Quick. Easy. Effective.

Drink up half pint!

Fast forward only one year and you’ll find me in the last phase of my Officer’s training in Aberdeen, MD. I’m still around 12% body fat, but in my quest to score 315+ in the APFT my weight has dropped to a steady 190. I couldn’t tell you when or why I thought of it, but eventually I realized two more things that would change my body drastically in the coming months. First, why the fuck wasn’t I getting enough rest at night? I was cruising the Internet for way too long every night because I was bored out of my mind or flipping through channels because I was bored out of my mind. Secondly, I realized that eating more vegetables would drastically cut down my grocery bill and probably could do some good for my body. [click to continue…]

Back then I was in good shape. I mean c’mon, I had to do 90 minutes of Army PT 3 or 4 times a week depending on the time of year, plus 3 or 4 days of lifting and running with the football team depending on the time of year, and 4 to 6 days of practice depending on the time of year. Spring of my Junior year ended up being the busiest with Army PT from 0600-0730 Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, random Army classes from 0500-0730 on Thursdays, Squad tactics training from 0800-1400ish on Saturdays, football workouts for 2+ hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays OR Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays with practice from 0600-0900 on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Check out this part of a facebook conversation I had with my buddy yesterday* over this whole “change your profile picture to fight child abuse” bullshit…

*Yes, that was actually a back in October-ish, but I suck and forgot to click “publish”. My bad.
