Yes I did, but thanks MF! On another positive note I found a new gym that takes my insurance so Im excited about that. Its a little further away than ballys so Im still going to try to get back into ballys but at least now I have an alternative.
I have been getting into arguments lately with my gf and also at work. So I'm going to take an active approach to working on this problem. I watched a documentary called Happiness on nextflix the other day. It was pretty interesting I would recommend people check it out. Compassion seemed to be the focus that I wanted to take away from watching the doc, so Im going to try doing some compassion meditation. Here is a link if anyone else is interested: http://www.self-compassion.org/guided-s ... s-mp3.html

Also if anyone else has a link to any compassion meditations that you have used please send them my way.

Thanks,

-Dylan

Well we lost in a grueling first round match and just couldn't score, the other team only had 1 early goal and then both of us were held scoreless for the rest of the game until the very end when our keeper came out to try and make a push and we let in a couple more. Oh well we ended the regular season in 4th not bad.
Got up to the mountains last weekend for an excellent couple of days snowboarding and really made some good progress on the jibs. Conquered a log and a picnic table and I am starting to be able to get onto skinny rails that you need to ollie a decent amount to get onto. I had a mental block keeping me from that before so it was a good breakthrough. Unfortunately the season is pretty much up, we did get some snow this week but I dont think I can make it up. I'm hoping it will last another week and I can go the following weekend.
Still been doing in house workouts but planning on hitting the new gym more starting this weekend.
Also the weather has been all over the place and has really been drying out my skin. Besides drinking water do any of you have other foods or things you take to fight off skin drying symptoms?

Getting into fennel but I have to really cook it well or else its not as good to me. New fav dish is yam mash with coconut milk and vegan chorizo.
I've been drinking a lot of aloe lately. Anyone make their own aloe juice? Is it complicated? Need a juicer?

Been busy with other things and slacking on working out lately. I'll be getting back into it asap. Hopefully another workout tomorrow. Just landed a new job so things are looking promising.

hey Dylan, i work outside in all weathers, and in dust and mud and so on so my skin gets a hammering. after trying every moisturiser there is, i found walnut oil in a bottle for cooking to be the best thing, i rub it into my hands and face before going to work in bad conditions.

Sorry to hear about the fighting, have you had positive results from what you took away from that documentary?
I've been introduced to the greatest moisturizer ever by a client. It's called Dermal Therapy. It's fairly hard to find, at least for me lol so I'd just check out the website and email them to see where it's sold in your area.

So updates with me, I start a new job in May that has great gym membership benefits, so I'm excited about that.
I just went to Vermont for the first time. Loved it. Road Mt Snow and Stratton. I liked them but but prefer stratton if I had to pick a favorite.
Aussie's are in New York so we are having a family reunion. There will definitely be some temptation to eat unhealthy the next 4 days...

Okay the bad news is that I ate like a glutton and disregarded everything I know about nutrition for 4 days straight at my family reunion. The good news is that I got my Bally's membership back and I went in today and worked my ass off. Arms, back, chest and shoulders. AND then hot tub (the best part about Bally's).
Mixed some Vega into some rice pudding and really like that. Also discovered that lentils with coconut milk and bok choy is pretty damn good.
Snowboarding season is over and I'm taking a break from soccer, well at least playing in an organized league, I'll still get out for some pick up games I hope since the weather is nicer. I'm going to need some more cardio in my life but not running. Maybe basketball and tennis...we'll see.

PS I'm learning the guitar and my finger tips are numb. I guess its normal but its weirding me out.

Getting back into a regular routine at the gym and loving it. Did back, abs, shoulders, arms and chest today.
I got a free session with a trainer set for Thursday night so I'm going to use the time to have him focus on strengthening the muscles I use to plant and kick for shooting in soccer.

Eating pretty decently checked out new sustainable restaurant (kind of been our thing recently) http://www.bustersnyc.com/

We also have a farm tour planned for my gf's bday and then a farm to table restaurant for dinner that night as well.

On a side note, any cons to sitting in the hot tub after workouts?

Played full court 5 on 5 basketball last weekend and fell hard catching myself with my hands and wrists, particularly on one side. Thought I was okay and kept playing. A week later my left hand and wrist is still injured but its getting better, just slowly. Its frustrating because I had just gotten back into the routine of going to the gym regularly. I'm going to go tomorrow and wear a wrist brace and see how it goes.

On a side note we went on a farm tour today at Stone Barn center (this is what new yorkers do for adventure lol leave the big city and go check out farm animals). Even though it is not a vegan establishment by any means, they are doing a lot of things very well, ie, organic, no pesticides, hardly any carbon foot print, etc.

The farm trip sounds nice, good to see them leading by example.

Hope your wrist is starting to come right, you're not going to get it checked out or you don't think it's anything too serious? Hope you had a good weekend Dylan MF.

Thanks MF, I had my gf look at my hand and wrist injury, the benefit of dating a physical therapist.
