December 20, 2016: Training Journal

Well, today is going to be a crazy day because I have to leave work at 1:00pm in order to get to an appointment scheduled for 2:15pm. (Got to love that mid-day shuttle schedule!) In any event, I am determined to do as much training as I can despite this nutty running around routine.

NOTE: I am publishing this entry halfway through the day, so I am only up to lunch on my nutrition menu. However, I have managed to do all my Wing Chun training for the day! Only thing left to do: 10 Minute Trainer Cardio.

About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
