Over the past month, I’ve thought of some ideas to make the theme of my blog more consistent.  I have multiple blogs, but don’t really want to write and manage all of them.   So I’ve narrowed it down to just a few.  So consistent or more frequent blog posts is what I’m aiming for.

For now, I’ve scaled back working out every single day or at least 5-6 days a week.  It’s tough to be consistent every single day.  On my rest days I try to get a couple walks in before, after, or at work for a low intensity workout.  Meal preps for half the week to get myself used to it again and so I don’t waste food.

A couple things I’m working on at the moment.  Home office.  The room was pretty much used as temporary storage.  I’ll need to move everything down into the garage to get junked or stored.

Also, I’m learning Japanese. I’ve always wanted to visit Japan and I’ve always wanted to learn another language.  It just made sense to learn Japanese.  I’ll post some links and thoughts over the weekend.  Perhaps as early as tonight.

Started training again the last few weeks.  At this point, it seems impossible that I’ll be ready for Honolulu Marathon.  We’ll see how it goes.  Last week was great, was pretty consistent and made progress.  Set out to do more this week, but didn’t go to kickboxing since I cut my finger pretty bad with my quadcopter.  Could do a little more running and gym time, but need to focus.  It’s a holiday weekend.

Current focus besides running:

  • AWS
  • Cloudstack
  • jQuery

…and of course playing with quadcopters.  I bought a few things from Osh yesterday after pigging out on Sushi.  Went out this morning but crashed pretty bad and need to do some repairs.  I decided to give the mobius another chance and have been flying with a new one the last couple weeks.  The quality isn’t as good as a GoPro and sometimes it just acts weird.  Like this morning, it didn’t capture any video.  Meh.

blah, stomach ache

Posted: May 9, 2015 in Uncategorized

Lunch time came later than usual today and thus was hungry.  Tried a new place near by.  Was not impressed, food is ok but the service was meh.  The wait staff is young, probably high school.  Ours bailed after taking our order and the staff was not prepared to pick up more customers during the time.  More people came, service was really bad.  The food was just ok, but it gave me a stomach ache.  I don’t think I’ll go back there again.

Racked out on the couch this afternoon.  Time to chill out before heading out to my cousin’s performance later this evening.  I need to get into a workout kinda mode again.

Two months

Posted: March 21, 2015 in Uncategorized

Wow it’s been 2 months since I last wrote a blog post.  It’s been a busy couple of months.  I’m barely getting out of bed at noon on a Saturday.  Catching up on the some shows, currently the arrow finale, and having coffee.  No, I didn’t go out the night before.  Every once in a while I’ll have a bad case of insomnia and that spills into the next day.  I really need to cut off the energy drinks.

Let’s see if I can recap what I’ve been up to in the last couple months. Hmm…

Obviously, I started a new gig. Trying to find the balance between work, stuff at home, and being active.  I signed up for the honolulu marathon at the end of the year.  So I’ve given up alcohol again.  I’m trying not to be too gung hung ho with training and being active.  However as I type this out it dawns on me …I have a 10k tomorrow, a half next weekend and one on may 2nd.

What else.  I’ve rode my bike to work a couple times an am trying to make that a daily thing. The weather is nice so I may give it another shot.  Will probably have to leave a little earlier so I can take my time getting there instead of trying to speed pedal in.  I’ve picked up a nike fuel band but still have my fitbit.  I wear both.  A little obsessive. Yes. That’s what I mean about not trying to be too gung ho. Hey, it’s all about the journey right?  I’ve tried ultimate frisbee for the first time ever and a bunch of us at work play at lunch every thursday.

Been trying to read more.  I think I am, but I need to finish books before putting them down and picking up another.  Work life could not be any better.  I returned back to a place I spent almost 6 years of my career for my 4th position/title.  It feels like home.

Will try to improve on the blog frequency…

Relaxing weekend

Posted: January 25, 2015 in Uncategorized

It was all fun, food, and movies this weekend.  I still need to do laundry.  Ate  @ Gerri’s grill and ringerhut, watched big hero 6 and blackhat.  I was too hyped up about blackhat.  It wasn’t as nerdy as I was hoping to be and the plot was pretty twisted.  It was meh.  Loved big hero 6.  Watching november man on dvd now. lol

Star Wars Half Marathon

Posted: January 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

Ran the disney half marathon this past weekend.  It was one of my friend’s first half, well actually make that 2 firsts for my friends but one didn’t finish.  We pigged out at a korean bbq spot after.  Started a new gig this week after returning from the half.  Glad to be back at a former employer.  It feels like home.

Here are some pics from this weekend’s run:

Hot Chocolate 15k

Posted: January 14, 2015 in Uncategorized

Ran the hot chocolate 15k this weekend.  Woke up around 5:15am to get ready and it was cold.  Drove up to SF to find parking.

Before start.


During… probably about 60% done…”Run fatty there’s hot chocolate at the end.” Is what I kept telling myself.


Almost at the finish. These bison turned into hamburgers right before my very eyes.  Like in the cartoons.


Post race.

Biggest Loser

Posted: January 7, 2015 in Uncategorized

Good read:

I joined the #BiggestLoserPHP15.  There’s a lot of folks that I’ll see at conferences this year and that I’ve met at previous ones as well.  After last april, after being on the wagon for over year I jumped off and indulged in a lot culinary adventures lol. This is going until May 5th, I’m currently at pretty much a pretty high peak weigh whenever I’ve “bulked up”.  I’m at 206, and hoping to get to 180 by May 5th, 170 would be my ultimate goal.

Got a couple of runs lined up – hot chocolate run in SF this weekend and star wars half marathon next weekend in disneyland.  Well here we go.

What did I do over break?

Posted: January 5, 2015 in Uncategorized

Trying to sit here and recap what I did over break since I didn’t write during.


Some light reading and  workouts at the beginning but followed up with some debauchery .


Worked on my mini quads and did some flying.  Here’s how not to mount the wings on the minion.

Broke my mobius cam.


Went through a ton of props, a rapstrap, and a velcro strap.


Caught up with an old buddy of mine.  We pigged out and drank like a fish in downtown campbell.

Went part hunting and tried out cherry sushi in santa clara/sunnyvale area.  Eh, it was just aiite.
