    Pt.6: Betty Gets Thiccck

    Honestly I just start feeling tired and I can hear myself begin to form arguments for just crashing and not moving! It’s like my brain decides to switch sides XD but if I can see it coming I’ll go do the dishes, or tidy up, or check my calendar/todo list, to remind myself that I’ll feel better after doing one of these things compared to how I’d feel if I gave up and curled into a ball.

    Elastigirl Enjoys Her Summer

    Brandt showed me a photo the other day of fires in California I think, where the flames were about 3-4x higher than the tree tops! I remember his forestry days vividly and as young fiancée who went to visit him and then had to help curb the grass fires next to the Eucalyptus section that had a crown fire (tops of trees on fire) raging through them. We had to drive through that section to get to the grass section. He was showing me around his plantation when he was called out and didn't have time to drop me off at home first. I also worked in forestry (offices) so I knew something of what was needed. Heck, I'm praying and asking for protection for any one who has to help or live in the areas of those fires! And rain... lots of rain.

    Grumble Tracks Tremendous Totals

    I don't know what heavy enough is really. The recommendation ive seen from coaches is that if you are planning on competing, get one early to get used to it and start breaking it in. But I should have a 2x bodyweight 1rm by then, or close to if I put on more weight. 170kg at 85kg bodyweight. And doing 3 plates+ for 3x5. What would you recommend I'm lifting before considering a belt?

    What made you smile today?

    Ran across "The Neverending Story" on, of all the damned things, an inflight movie app. Amid all the Marvel flicks and 21st century TV shows. Hadn't watched it since I was like 7. It was exactly as dazzling, scary, and weird as I remember.
  6. Thursday 16th August The clusterfuck at work continued but it is what it is. Food was a bit of a car crash and I didn't fast. I did the opposite. I slowed. I got a meal deal for lunch - a ploughman's sammich with nice and spicy Nik Naks and an Innocent fizzy drink and I got veggie burgers for dinner, with mac and cheese. We watched OITNB in the evening. To illustrate how bad my food was yesterday, this is the Snapchat I sent to TH on my lunch.

    JonFirestar: Knightfall

    When I saw that Man vs Lakes run, I thought to myself there is no way that you'll do the Comrades and NOT be bored out of your mind! Yes, there's nice scenery, but it's slogging on tar road for 90km. Up and down serious hills/passes. But you are more than welcome to do it.

    GK lifts weight to shift weight

    Weigh in today and the scale hasn't budged; still stubbornly on 122.1kg. Not totally unexpected after Saturday's family BBQ (although I suspect that the real culprit is this morning's BM not being as thorough as it should be). A little disappointing, but not disheartening. Perhaps more importantly, I feel better; shirts feel looser, have had to go down a notch on my belt. So.... Could be worse... Always good to remember that. And to remember to not piss the better half off before bedtime. Back in the gym tonight, back to the weights.
  10. Live in Ashby de la Zouche, it's in Leicestershire too! I think it's kind of nice to not have everything at our fingertips at all times. I like that there are restrictions on Sunday openings because it means people get to spend more time with their families and really, it's rare to need anything from a supermarket in a true emergency and if you do there is always Spar (I might have mentioned Spar is lawless)

    Formation, Integration, Application: Tanktimus' next challenge

    I had the benefit of learning that pronounciation because of a town with that name, here in our Cape Province. But to remember the spelling I always say "wor-ches-ter-shire" and then say "wurs-ter", first r soft sound, almost not there. But then again, it might be slightly off as there is a slight difference between saying that name in Afrikaans than in English. We also have towns with names written as Kingsburgh, and Queensborough, but you say the last syllable as "bruh" not "berg" or "borrow". All thanks to our British heritage apparently Glad to hear the chiro has helped. Awesome! I'm continuing with the 28 day bible study messages I receive every day, although I somehow lost day 6... But *shrug*... I'm a little late on it this morning, but will do it, before I go on with school work.

    Glad the car accident was nothing serious. Where is the exchange student from?
  16. Could you print your spreadsheet and put stickers on the printed version?

    I did burpees with pullups today. It's all about perspective.

    New Start

    So here's my progress for Wednesday and today: 1) Ate a healthy breakfast yesterday (mostly fruit) and even managed to eat some fruit for lunch. Today I didn't get a chance to eat breakfast, which I don't think is a bad thing. I can count it as intermittent fasting, right? 2) No yoga yesterday, but I did get in around twenty minutes today. I was aiming for more, but I'll take it. 3) No writing at all yesterday, but I'm hoping to make that up this weekend. I found it hard to focus today between work and life things going on, but I threw on some DC/Marvel soundtrack music and I managed 1500 words. Onward to tomorrow.
  20. That sounds like a pretty deep/dark/heavy book. What is your field, if I may ask?

    Stribs Re-evaluates Her Priorities

    I feel like APs know we're terrified of hearing them holler our names and do they do it for fun. My AP and I get along great but she's a yeller. I can hear her across the school calling someone sometimes. Small school, but still.

    Druids' Sacred Grove: General Chatter

    I may try out the football thing, but I'd rather be throwing tomahawks! Korea is neat, but it is a very compact country. Finding a spot to get away from it all in Colorado was easy. Here, more of a challenge. Anyone know of an isolated, not many people hiking spot out here? - Murphy's Roommate
  24. I have a ton of real stickers here. Star wars, stars, butterflies, ect. Thing is, I have nothing to do with them, so it becomes this "well now what?" since I can't put them on my spreadsheet because my monitor will just have a thing that annoys me. I just don't know what to do with real ones. Or do I virtual ones, but what kinda and where do I keep them? Here ? The spread sheet? I dunno This part of the challenge was not very well thought out...

    Pt.6: Betty Gets Thiccck

    I know all about crashing in the couch in the evening. How do you identify these moments, and what are you doing to be pro-active?

    Pt.6: Betty Gets Thiccck

    I use Google Sheets all the time, but didn't know you could do that! Mind sharing how to set that up? And can you just copy/paste straight from Sheets to the forums and it keeps all formatting and everything? That's awesome!
