Totally late getting to this today. It’s already 10:30 in the morning, and I’m just starting writing. Of course, had to drive Sam to swimming this morning at frigging 5am, which always sucks big time. I’m counting down the days, till I don’t have to do that shit any longer. That girl had better pass her driving test on the first go, or there will be some conflict around this house. Anyways, yesterday was a pretty good day. Did some more reading of the Paleo for Athletes book, and I have a feeling, that I’m not getting enough protein in my diet. Will have to work on that. Always something to tweak. But, yesterday was a pretty good day. I ate very well again, just a little piece of dark chocolate at the end of the day as an indulgence. Plus, I tried the other Tony Horton yoga workout video. The one-on-one that he does out of his own home. It’s only 45 minutes long, instead of the 90 minute one he does for p90x, so that’s a good thing. Which, doesn’t mean it’s easy though. He took a bunch of the stretching out at the end, a few of my favorite ones, like the glute stretch, but I put it back in anyways. It’s still a really tough workout. I couldn’t get through all of it without taking breaks. But that’s ok, it gives me something to work towards. Definitely need to get my body weight down, I think to do that workout. I’m sure, if I could get under 165, that that workout would be so much easier to do. A ripped 160, would be even better. I think, if I keep doing the workouts, and following the eating goals, that I should get there. I do seem somewhat stuck at a 175 weight now, but, that’s my own fault. The last few weekends have definitely had some indulgences that I have stalled my progress. None the less, I seem to be holding steady at 175, and determined as ever to get down to 165 . . . or 160. We’ll see how those numbers feel and look as we get there. Either way, they would be good. I have a feeling, though to get to my <15% body fat, I’ll have to be under 160. So, enough of the fitness crap. Time to get going on the writing thing. I left my heroes yesterday, with a plan to escape from the airport with the helicopter chasing them, grab their own helicopter, and to land it on the roof of Fort Knox. That actually sounds pretty interesting as I write it here, but like they say, the devil is in the details. So I will just have to execute like a SOB to make it sound good. I need to throw some obstacles in the way, as they try to make it there. The obvious one, will be the museum tank, that the zombies have been trying to restore at the base. It should show up, sometime, as they’re trying to get the helicopter off the ground. Some sort of skirmish should ensue, but they should be able to get their helicopter off the ground. But, at what price should they pay? Maybe, maiming of one of our heroes. Serious leg damage, maybe lose an eye? Hmm, the colonel would look pretty good with an eye patch I think. If he lost part of his vision, then Alex would have to fly the copter himself. That would be another obstacle. Something to consider, would be maybe have the colonel seriously damage himself saving the little girl. Something, that gives them the opportunity to get the copter off the ground. That would be cool. He was supposed to be somewhat damaged when he wakes up from a coma all those years later. That could be interesting. Then, the tank could shot at them, while they’re flying. They could perhaps try shooting back, but Alex can’t do everything, and Christa would have to get involved. They could have a good time tearing through the golf course, and ripping up sand traps and water hazards, while evading each other. But, why wouldn’t the copter just fly straight to the fort, as it would be much faster then the tank. Well, of course, because Alex is a terrible pilot, and they damn near crash the thing in the process, giving the tank time to catch up to them. That would make it more interesting.
