H-IM notes for the last 2 weeks

I skipped on the blog entry last week as I was attending a friend's funeral. I won't get into the details too seriously as funeral talk is a downer, but suffice it to say my friend dying from a heart attack at 40 reminds me why I work out. He was a great guy and a friend to everyone he ever met, and there are a lot of people in the world that are sadder because he's gone. If he had watched his weight better and worked out more, he might still be here. He was an athlete in college too; he was a lineman for OU in the 80s and was a wrestler in high school(maybe college too, not sure about that though). But even he fell ill to diabetes after his weight went to sh*t. Anyway, I won't go on a long diatribe, but I took a valuable lesson from his demise about the importance of staying fit. The last couple weeks were a wash from a workout perspective thanks to attending to all the events around his death(not to mention March Madness), but I'm working back into the workout routine now.
