  1. One more week survived, one more to go! 8/28/21: BP - worked up to 135x3, 140x3, 145x3 Incline DB BP - 20x12, 22.5x12, 25x12, 30x12 Seated Cable Row - 60# 3x12 Close grip BP 45# 3x15 8/29/21: Sumo DL - worked up to 185x3, 195x3 Leg Ext - 50# 3x15 Leg Curl - 50# 3x15 Bicel Curls 12.5# 3x12 Week Four Recap: 1. 4/4 points for training 2. 5/7 points for protein 3. 5/7 points for steps Total is now 63 out of 72 points.
  2. I've got 2 of my 4 workouts in so far this week. I missed a day or two of step goals and broke my 72 day streak, boo. It sounds like the hospital I work at is going to reconsider offering telework to people who can do their jobs remotely. Nothing is official yet but fingers crossed! Routine COVID test yesterday was negative, woohoo! That is what I expected but it is still nice to see. I woke up this morning and the scale said 217.7 lb, which, as I like to say to my husband, is "a new low for me" this year. Total of 21.5 lb lost since April. And I'm enjoying a 3 day wee
  3. I am so sorry. I hope he has a speedy recovery.
  4. Phew, survived another week! This week's workouts: 8/17/21: OHP 45x5, 55x5, 65x5, 75x5, 80x5, 70x5, 60x6 Bar Pulls (BW) 3x8 Feet Up BP 60lb 3x10 8/20/21: Leg Ext 30x12, 40x12, 50x12x3 Leg Curls 30x12, 40x12, 50x12x3 Dead Bugs 3x10 (each side) Lat Pulldowns 40x12, 50x12, 60x12x3 8/21/21: BP 45x10, 65x5, 85x5, 105x5, 125x5, 130x5, 120x5, 105x15 (AMRAP) Incline DB Pres 20x10, 22.5x10, 25x10, 30x10 Tricep Rope Pulldowns 20# 3x15 Bicep Curls 10# 3x15 8/22/21: Sumo DL 55x5, 75x5, 110x3, 135x5,
  5. What a week! There were 4 COVID patients in our hospital as of Thursday, I suspect there will be more by Monday. Local schools open on 8/23, so within a week, maybe two, there will be lots of quarantines and shut-downs (I live in one of those "no mask mandate states...." which means many of my colleagues will have to stay at home to figure out childcare. It is going to stretch us thin in a hurry. There is absolutely nothing I can do to prevent it.... just watch it all unfold in this dumb state. Better news - I have completed 3 of my 4 weekly workouts, and should have ti
  6. Okay Week 2 Recap: 1. 3/4 points for training 2. 6/7 points for protein 3. 6/7 points for steps Brings the total to 32 out of 36 points. I wasn't really happy about this but Mr. Brovatar says I'm being too hard on myself. Time to get ready for a new mesocycle.
  7. I've really embraced this deload week. It worked out well because things were bonkers at work. I did my first of four planned workout sessions, but so far that's it. I'll do at least one more tomorrow. Maybe just start fresh next week. I had several things planned before this new outbreak - I was meaning to get around to getting my hair cut, going to the dentist, going to the optometrist.... now I'm just tempted to put it all off again until cases are on the decrease again... but at this rate it might be another 6 months! Oh well if those stay my biggest problems I think I'll be ju
  8. 8/08 Workout: Sumo DL 55x5, 89x3, 109x3, 129x3, 135, 155, 175, 185, 195, 205, 215, 220 (new PR for this year woohoo) Lat Pulldowns 60# 3x12 Leg Extensions 50# 3x12 Leg Curls 50# 2x12 Hypers (BW) 3x10 Phew time for a deload week and some relaxing.
  9. 8/05 Workout (at home): I felt very stiff and hips were tight, I didn't know what to do besides keep doing warm-up sets until things felt better, hence the ridiculous amount of singles. Happy with this top single though. Looking back through my workout log - this is the heaviest weight I've hit since March 2020. Squats 45x5, 55x5, 65x3, 75x3, 85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 165x1 8/07 Workout (gym): BP 45x10, 65x6, 85x6, 105x3, 125x2, 135, 145, 150, 155, 160, 165x1 Seated Row 40x10, 50x10, 60x12x3 Incline DB BP 25# 3x12 Karlsen Flys 10# 3x10
  10. This is why I love floor press.
  11. 8/03 Workout: Strict OHP 45x5, 55x5, 65x5, 75x3, 80, 85, 90, 95x1 Inverted Rows (BW) 3x8 Feet up BP 55x10, 75x10, 85x10x2 Face Pulls (red band) x30 (high/med/low) I'm happy I completed this workout at home despite really not feeling it. Nothing to write home about, but I did the thing! I hit 8k steps daily last challenge no problem, usually averaging 10-11k steps daily. But for some reason already this week 9k is a struggle. I managed to hit it today but only with some concerted effort.
  12. 7/31 Workout: BP 45x10, 65x5, 85x3, 105x3, 115x3, 125x3, 135x3, 105x16 (AMRAP) - New AMRAP best so far this year Seated Rows 40x10, 50x10, 60x11x3 Incline DB BP 22.5x10, 25x10, 30x10x2 Bicep Curls 12.5lb 3x14 Tricep Pushdowns (Green Band) 3x16 8/01 Workout: Sumo DL 55x5, 89x3, 109x3, 135x3, 155x3, 175x3, 185x3 Leg Extensions 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x10x3 - Moved up to the 60 lb for the first time this year Leg Curls 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x10x3 Reverse Hypers (BW) 4x10 I didn't do any structured yoga per se, but I did roll aro
  13. I was able to get off work early today so I was able to go to the gym before rush hour(s) started! 7/30 Workout: Belt Squats 95x5, 115x3, 135x3, 155x3, 175x3, 185x3, 195x3x2 Lat Pulldowns 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x11x3 Leg Extensions 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 50x11, 50x15 Leg Curls 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 50x11, 50x15 Happy with how the belt squats went. Weight is still creeping downward but I think I'm definitely getting closer to an isocaloric balance. A yoga/mobility/stretching session this weekend sounds pretty good and probably overdue.
  14. Thank you! I was short on time yesterday evening so did an abridged workout: 7/29: KB Squats 15lb 3x10 Seated Banded Hip Abduction 3x15 Bird Dogs 3x10 Bench Press 45 lb 3x10 Baby Brovatar no longer fits into her 6-9 month clothes! Moving up a size range has been emotional for me every single time. So many new cute things to wear, but so many cute things "Gone forever"
  15. It is very tough, especially for those of us who have done the socially responsible thing all along. And now our glimmer of hope gets snatched away… To compound to my frustration this week - I work in healthcare at a hospital and we have been busting our humps for the last 18 months. As a thank you, our employers are trying to implement this new “increased productivity plan” that is basically “thanks for working so hard During the pandemic - now we need to you to work even harder with no additional compensation.” Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck you. That’s what I have to say about that. I’m gonn
