I have been fairly quiet over the past month, and I apologize for my absence. I have been extremely busy in my private life, and both my eBay business and blogs have suffered.
There are a bunch of reasons. Most importantly, I moved from Enfield, CT to South Hadley, MA. We moved because it is closer to my wife's school and it is much cheaper than the location where we were before. In addition, it is quiet, in a great town, a different apartment. Hardwood floors, a large living room and kitchen are the benefits, while a small bathroom, smaller kitchen and old neighbors the downside. Second, I have been studying hard for my CFA exam that will be coming up in December. It requires a ton of hours on a daily basis, and both my healthy routine and the rest of my life has suffered. It should pay off in the end. Finally, work has been busy, so some of my spare time for blogging has dried up.
Moving was a pretty fun experience. Two of my good friends came, and although it was a rainy day, we were able to move all of the big furniture. It's great exercise as you are carrying, coming up and down stairs, and working as a team. I consider it extremely paleo style excercise, because it is quite primal in nature. It is remniscient of a barn-raising, as you get a group of people together doing physical activity for the good of one of your community members. I am definitely indebted to both of my friends!
I have drank a ton of great beers lately, although I have tried to keep that to just the weekend. My weight loss and body building have been at a moderate standstill, but I don't think I am gaining anything back. I will continue to try and make progress and meet my goal of 190lbs by the end of the year
