A whole lot of new

So, in the while since my last few posts a whole lot in my life has changed for the better. So I figured I'd go ahead and write it up here for you guys :) First and foremost, I have a new girlfriend! Her name is Stephanie and she is a completely wonderful gal whom I am very lucky to have met! I have so much fun hanging out with her! She's already turning into my best friend as well as my girlfriend, which is totally awesome! What can I say, she's gorgeous, we're on the same page on  all the most important issues you could think of and she wants to see star trek in iMax!!!! I mean holy crap! I didn't think they even made girls that cool! ;) We've spent a whole lot of time together over the last few weeks and it really just keeps getting better. It's amazing how happy I get when she emails or calls, it's been a good while since I found someone I was this taken with :)

If that wasn't cool enough, I'm also finally moving out of my smaller apartment into a rental town home. Yeah, it's still a rental but it's a big step up so I'm very excited. I figure I'll be ready to move into my own house in a year or two which I'm extremely happy about. The new diggs are in the same apartment building as my current place, in fact I'm on the same street. But it's 2 floors, absolutely gigantic and has a small back yard. I'm happy! :)

The last new thing... I decided to get a puppy since I finally have enough space for one. She's so adorable it isn't funny. After spending a good deal of time thinking up dog names with my girlfriend (with much appreciated assistance from my sis Alessia and friend Nikki) we've settled on Consetta as the name. It's italian for Conception, it sounded nice to me, so it stuck :) Stephanie gets full credit for finding the name while I was out shopping. Consetta is still a bit nervous and shy in her new diggs, and the move this weekend to the town house will probably throw her off some. But.. she's warming up already, I think with just a little more time she's going to be A-OK! I'm sure you guys want to see a picture, so I've posted it below:

It's the Easter season again!!!!

So I figured I'd post the lyrics for my errr umm... favorite easter chant. 10pts for anyone that figures out where it came from ;)

Sanctum Piter oteum, Deus ore uneum.
Hippitus hoppitus reus homine.
In suspiratoreum, lepus in re sanctum.
Hippitus hoppitus Deus Domine.

Coach Carlo?

I don't know, sounds like an interesting idea to me.... It would certainly afford me the excuse to rename my badly misnamed blog ;)  So anyone who's read the past few posts should know about a couple months ago or so I bought Team Beach Body's P90X product put together by celeb trainer Tony Horton. Well it seems like there's an opportunity for me to join in with their "independent coaches" program. Basically it's their way of increasing sales staff when you get down to it, but there's added fun. For instance you also end up helping keep people motivated and in the virtual gym they have set up that they call a WOWY (incidentally, TBB you should be looking at bluray, imagine WOWY workout on your TV while you actually work out!). Anyway, helpful hints aside it sounds like it could be a fun opportunity to really take my new hobby from mild interest to more involved levels. There's also the possibility of making a little $$ on the side.

The down side to this? There are some fees associated with becoming a coach. It's fairly nominal but I do have to consider I'll be paying out monthly for this. I'm considering it anyway, it sounds like it could be fun. It also sounds like it would be a great chance for me to learn a lot more about fitness. Heck who knows, maybe it'll lead to me being the next rock star celeb trainer in 15 yrs or so ;) Ok, maybe I'm aiming a little high on that one.
