JULY 28, 2015 EDIT

Yes it was a very productive Monday for the most part.  There was a lull however I did get through it.  My accomplishments included bidding on several new jobs, winning one job, completing one job, two hours of a shoulder routine (went beyond the norm), and advancing some of my paintings.  Half way through the day, a huge bull elk galloped by my window.  From the size of his rack, there is no doubt he will be screaming and fighting for ladies in about a month.

My shoulder routine used to be my longest routine.  As I added more variations to my chest and back routines they got longer than the shoulder routine.  That all changed yesterday (Monday) when I pushed myself.  I have successfully transitioned the majority of my routines from the 20 pound dumb bells to the 45 pounders.  Yesterday was the second time I did 45 pounders for my shoulders.  I followed up with 20 pounders just to ensure full movement as well as to grow an area that has become a bit stagnate.  There is something about a set of protruding deltoids that makes me want to advance this part of my body.  Clay Matthews has done this well.

I didn’t hit the weights until about 3 PM.  Until that time, I had been laying in bed writing while trying to ignore the sunny, summer day just outside my window.  In order to maximize time, I watched TV while working out.  At the end I was exhausted so I laid and watched another show.  I rarely watch TV as it is however I needed to reboot.  At least I followed the rule that I had imposed on my kids; if the TV is on, it had better be educational.

After an hour of the Science Channel, I went over to my only stored program, “The Joy of Painting” with Bob Ross.  Within a half an hour, I was reenergized and at the drafting table updating the painting you see below.

I finally filled in the outlines of the mountains in this painting of the famous Colorado landmark, Maroon Bells.  Although the reflection is not quite as symmetrical as I’d like, I did make it until 10:13 PM and then slept a solid 8 hours.

One more thing occurred on my Monday, I was again published on a national website with my electronics blog.

My Monday rocked it.  I hope yours did.
