How to start and Finish P90X

"This is the absolute BEST SHAPE my body has EVER been in."

How I did it: I made the commitment. Bought the equipment. Got rid of the junk food (aka ate it lol). Bought healthy groceries. Set a date to begin. From there, it was sticking to the schedule and never stopping!

Lessons & tips: You will be sore for the first week. Keep pushing through the exercises! By week 2, your body will be used to the exercises and soreness will not be a problem. Don't be discouraged because you can't do the program like they can. I finished and I STILL can't do some of the things perfectly. Just DO YOUR BEST and WHAT...


Resources: Iron Gym Pull Up Bar. Exercise Mat. Resistance Bands. Dumbbells.

It took me 90 days.

25 Random Things

1. My mother lives with schizophrenia. A lot of people have no understanding of it, so it's hard to talk about it with people. It really takes a toll on the family.

2. I've lived in Jacksonville, FL for all 26 years of my life. I have never once been out of the country. I would like to do so someday.

3. I usually have phrases or words that I say in temporary phases. I used to say "You Lose" and "Mofo" a lot. Currently, I'm saying "WAT" a lot.

4. I grew up into Christianity through my childhood and adolescence. My current belief is agnostic, but sometimes I feel guilty about it. Overall, I think religion is a positive thing. Except for those crazies who try to shove it down your throat.

5. Throughout grade school, I rarely ever cursed. Never smoked. Never drank. Never did drugs. I was strict about not having sex before marriage. Looking back, I understand why I was so socially unaccepted.

6. I try to be organized in everything that I do. When things are planned, everything seems to falls into place better for me.

7. I used to LOVE video games. I wish I had the same love for it as I did when I was a child. In middle school, I once said that I wanted to be the president of Nintendo. I still love video games, but wish I loved it more.

8. I want to learn just about anything and everything that I feel that I can put to use. With this, it's usually hard for me to focus on one thing and becoming a master at it. I tend to learn enough about things just to get me by.

9. I am an electronic gadget freak. Cameras, camcorders, cell phones, laptops, tablets, media players, etc. I switch my electronics out pretty often. If there is a fast multitasking device with good battery life, I probably want it. Next on my list is the 64GB iPod Touch (unless the Zune HD makes a 64GB).

10. I don't really have a "best friend".  I used to in grade school. As we grew up, our interests were not compatible and we pretty much went our separate ways.

11. I've always been shy. Some people think I can talk to anybody, which is absolutely not true.  Depending on whom it is, if I see someone I recognize, I'll try to keep from being seen to avoid small talk. I get a bit anxious with small talk.

12. I hardly ever initiate communication unless I am interested in you, need your knowledge, or have a question. This means I don’t really call people to hang out, IM people to chat, text people to say hi, etc. I think my childhood set me that way in that I didn’t hang out with too many people outside of school so I really had no one to call. Don’t take this offensively please. If you ever want to talk with me, feel free.

13. I love singing and dancing. I LOVE Karaoke as most of you already know. I’m pretty comfortable with my singing voice, but only on specific songs. I almost always have a song stuck in my head. Randomly, I’ll walk on rhythm with the music in my head. When I’m in an elevator, I’ll sometimes bust out into a dance and I’ll stop right before the door opens.

14. I love to play sports. I played intramural baseball from 1989 to 1996. I also played high school football in 10th and 12th grade as a runningback. I want to play more sports, but it seems the friends I have nearby are not interested in doing so.

15. I rarely let my depression show to anyone. People view me as a strong person and I liked to be viewed in that respect. At the same time, I don’t stay down in the dumps for long. I tell myself that I don’t have time to be down about anything. There are too many things to do and not enough time in life to waste on dwelling.

16. I LOVE puns and corny jokes. I LOVE jokes that people take a few seconds to understand. For example… *ahem* “NEXT TIME MY NECK IS DIRTY, IMMA USE KLEENEX”…GET IT? (If you didn’t laugh, U GAY GO WAY)

17. I’ve never been attracted to girls with dark skin. No offense. It’s just not a preference for me. This doesn’t mean I’ll never date a dark-skinned girl, but chances are pretty low.

18. I’ve come to the conclusion that a girl has to be somewhat dorky for me to be interested in them.

19. I don’t take medicine, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc unless I absolutely have no other choice.

20. I’ve never dealt with the death of a close friend or family member. With this, I have a small fear of how I will react when this happens regardless of whether it would be a breakdown or feeling absolutely nothing.

21. I’m a lightweight drunk. I like it. It’s cheaper that way.

22. I have never broken a bone in my body. (knocks wood)

23. I absolutely HATE being wrong about things. A lot of my friends know that, so I believe some of them push me until they drive me over the edge. In fact, this causes me problems in relationships, definitely.  Talk about arguing over something so dumb! It’s probably because of this. I’ve been getting a little better about it.

24. One of my hidden talents as a kid was the ability to fold my ears and make them stick. I just tried it. I can still do it for a small amount of time.

25. DDR. I fell in love with it at first sight. If it was not for this game, I would not have the many friendships that I have developed over the past 8 years. I really think that it saved my social life from going down the drain. I never found to myself to fit with any crowd or clique in high school. I was so involved with DDR that I set a goal to run my own tournament. After running the very first DDR Storm, I KNEW that I had found the perfect group of friends. Ever since then, I’ve used my tournaments to meet new people and keep the community close.

26. (BONUS!) Even though I rarely give thanks, I appreciate my friends and family! Thank you all for being there! :D

So I believe it's safe for me to say that LiveJournal is pretty much dead (within my group of friends).

Free Association Post

I need to start running again. I keep telling myself to do so. I get home. I plop on the bed and just lay there. Lazy. It's easier to plan things when you aren't doing those specific tasks. The harder part is actually doing those things. I guess that's why deadline were created. I force myself to do things I don't want to do all the time. It's for my own good. I can't wait to take a vacation. So I rest and just be... lazy. For no reason at all. I feel like I'm always busy in one sense. Other times, I feel like I am not doing enough. Which one is right? Maybe they are both right. It's all subjectivity anyway.

What if I were to write every word that I ever thought? Could it actually be changed around and edited into a published book? No wayyyyy. But I have seen a lot of crap out on those bookshelves. LOL, what would I know about those books anyway? Not like I read them. Haha. On the contrary though, I read lots of news articles, video game blogs, technology blogs, and... I have a bamboo plant at my desk. I always forget to water it. I could just set a recurring alarm on my calendar to water it. Just isn't a high priority for me I guess. I'll just stick with looking every few days until it looks dry.

I think that's good enough for today. Right? :)

Random Update

Decided that I'm due for another update:

Work - Nothing new. It seemed that I may have been involved in a video project, but it got scrapped due to staffing changes. There are a lot of staffing changes going on around me. It makes me wonder if I will have to go through job abolishment again. I think I will know a lot more with what's going to be happening in our organization when October hits.

School - Taking a break from classes. It's been a good time. I'll probably get back into gear during the Spring Semester.

Love - Nope. Nothing to pursue. Focusing on me.

Family - I've been involved with a class by the National Alliance of Mental Illnesses along with my sister and father. It's a free public class regarding living with family members who have mental illnesses. It's a really great class and I think it'll help us deal and cope with what my mother's going through.

Friends - Nacho Tuesdays. Ice Cream Fridays. Pizza Thursdays. Karaoke. The Pearl. Blazblue. Parties here and there. I've been trying to keep myself busy. I've been having some good times. I appreciate all you guys!

Tournaments - I'm setting up a free tournament at UNF to be held sometime in November. It'll consist of multiple fighting games on gaming consoles. I've also set the date for Project Storm 3 to take place at Speed Park on March 19-21, 2009. Still going strong!

I guess that's all for now! Til next time!

Many will never appreciate or realize the inspiration and talent that was Michael Jackson.
