Tuff Stuff

Well, the new shorter gym schedule seems to be working so far.  Keep in mind I’m only into my first week on the new shift.  The biggest hurdle for me is going to bed sooner.  Being a bit of a night owl, I tend to be awake for 2 or 3 hours after I get off work.   This does not make for being an early riser. heehee 

I had a nice triceps workout today.  I’ve been neglecting them lately so they are feeling extra sore at the moment.  My triceps always seem to respond really well so I’ll have them poppin’ in no time.  And considering the new tattoo rolls right across my right tricep, that be important! lol 


Things are not so rosy at work.  With the economy in the toilet, our dept ((even though we still are below our staffing requirements)) is being asked to cut up to 25% of our budget.  While my dept. is immune to layoffs, it does not bode well.  We will probably have to give up days off as well as a cost of living raise scheduled for April.  The latter is particularly bitter as we already gave up raises for next year. 

All things considered, I’m happy to have a job.

Maybe I missed something, but what is this shorter gym schedule that you are doing and how is it working?

@Wildcuddler ~ I have less free time on work days so I’m doing fewer muscle groups per day and adding extra days in the gym.

I swear to god, things are in the toilet everywhere with the economy…no place is immune, it seems. As for the gym, I’ll never look like you, but I’m giving it my best shot!

I know what you mean as far as your job is concerned. We found out in December that there will be no raises at all in 2009.
In addition to that amazing news, we were recently informed that there will be layoffs happening every Thursday from now until the end of March.

@AjohnP ~ Ouch! Sorry to hear it man. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

I assume, we’ll be seeing some progress results pics of your new routine?

I was laid off at the beginning of December. Count your blessings. I was hired for another job, but it’s state funded but the state hasn’t set a budget for it yet, SO, I’m waiting for the start date of my training class. Sigh….
