Wow! Off the wagon, but trying!

Okay, so MAJA has been horrible during the holidays. Like, I don't
even wanna write this post. In other words, I fell off the wagon and
landed flat on my ass. I got sick the week before Xmas and didn't
start feeling better until my adventure to Las Vegas.

Once I got to Vegas I managed to work out once. Once! When it comes to
food intake, "forget about it!" LOL. But hey, I haven't given up. I am
making a mad dash toward the wagon that I rode religiously for 30 days

Tomorrow is the final day of celebrating. Thank god. I swear that the
road became rather bumpy as the holidays approached, until before I
knew it I was eating whatever I wanted and not attempting to work it

I got a lot of cool stuff for Xmas. I have a TV for my PS3, season one
of Tsubasa, Pan's Labrynth, Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan DVD, that new
Resident Evil movie on bluray, money, and that about sums it up. I
can't seem to stop buying stuff though. LOL.

That resident evil movie is dope! Valkyrie was dope too. I saw Gran
Turino and I don't know if I liked it as much as I liked Valkyrie.
Next on my list is Watchmen. That movie looks dope, along with the
Xmen Origins movie.

I plan on recording some video tomorrow as I ring in the new year.

MAJA Weight loss! Read on!

Wow.... my, how time has flown. The last time I posted, I had just finished my first week of P90X. Now, I am on day 25! Yes, I am almost 4 full weeks into it. It's been CRAZY. I've been doing Kenpo and Yoga and lifting. I just weighed in an measured...and I can't believe how much I've changed over the past 25 days. Let me explain:

New weight = 198lbs from 211
New bodyfat percentage = 25.5% from 35% (I was 39.5% in May of this year!!!)
New Waist Size = 36.7 inches from 39.5 inches
Jeans I can wear = 34s from 36s

Ummmm... I can't spell progess any other way! This is CRAZY!!!! I can't believe I broke to 200lbs threshold within the first phase of the workout plan! Konshu, my coach, doesn't even know this yet, but he will soon enough lol...

I am starting up my Japanese private lessons again, taking them, that is. I want to start them up, though, with someone I don't know. I've met and had some kick-ass tutors before, but I just feel the need to expand scope of friends/aquaintances who I can call to speak Japanese. I went ahead and started my JAPANESEPOD101 membership up again. I learned some cool little tidbits from them. I figure that if I want to become fluent in Japanese, I need to get as much of it as I can here in the States.

I had a dream last night, where I literally walked away from my life here and travelled to Japan. I was like Black Jesus, literally walking across the ocean to Japan, like some titan ready to make my mark like Godzilla. I left my job, my schooling, my home, my friends, family... everything... with a broad smile and open arms walking across a calm sea. So poetic, eh?

So, Bleach... I made it to episode 111. Yes! 111! The Bound Saga hath ended and I am pooped. Like, I want to take a Bleach BREAK now because I don't know how much more I can take right now. Ever get that way with a really great anime? Haha...

Okay... big successes today. I am beat. Gotta go to bed.
