September 1 – 10

New month, new start

All in all, I would have to say that September has gotten off to a pretty decent start. The workload at my main job has gotten pretty heavy, but it’s tolerable and in any way shouldn’t be this way much longer. Basically just a temporary state of affairs. Countering it has been the seasonal decline in hours at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, so I have less of the “worked to death” sensation than I was experiencing a few months ago. Thankfully.

What with my less exhausting schedule, I’ve made a newfound commitment to going to the gym on a regular basis. Something I’ve read, which helps, is to think of each gym trip more as a scheduled appointment and less of a spur of the moment thing. In other words, I plan out the gym trips at least a few days in advance and make time for them, rather than deciding on a day-by-day basis whether to go or not. Too often the latter situation becomes a “not.” I’ve also decided to focus on neutral grip pull-ups, doing them at least twice a week and trying to up my rep count each time. They really are the best back exercise, much more demanding than rows or cable pulldowns or anything else. Once I start making some appreciable progress with them I’ll do a similar session-to-session improvement focus on something else, maybe bench presses.

Saturday the 16th is the semi-annual gun show in my area. I don’t have anything specific in mind, maybe a lever action, but I’ll go to the show with cash in hand – not all dealers accept credit or debit cards – and see if something catches my attention. One bad thing is that if I do end up buying a new firearm I won’t have the chance to take it to the range until the following Friday. Guess I’ll just have to be patient.
