  8. yes!! that's the one i found and pinned this morning
  9. wow! glad you are okay and hope the weather isn't too bad today. living in the northeast means we can handle a ocean-load of snow but have no idea what a tornado is. i've never heard of Chicken soboro donburi so i googled it and now i want it. did you order in or make it at home?
  10. Week 4 – Thursday goblets 45x5 65x5 back squats 85x5 105x5 115x6 walking DB lunges 4 sets of 16 with 30# DBs in each hand floor BB hip thrusts 45x10x4 and 3 mins running on the treadmill while SO finished up. my glutes are on fire. at work: 2 planks @ 75s 1 wall sit @ 60s chair pose @ 60s lunges @ 60s each skipped WOD as planned but then realized I didn’t take out the ground turkey to thaw for dinner. I ended up getting a chicken salad wrap from a nearby pizza place which was gross. womp. watched some Kimmy Schmidt, did some laundry and was in bed by 8:15. Calories: 9,617/14,000 Weights: 2/2 Spartan: 2/5 Burpees: 40/60 Yoga: 45/60 so I got 8 hours of sleep last night but I’m still feeling super tired this morning. decided on a 30 minute walk with puppers instead of a run/walk. but that also meant I forgot to yoga. will try to get in 15 minutes between tonight and tomorrow morn. I neeeeed to get to bed before 8pm tonight as we’re leaving for vaca before dawn.

  12. nice work on bench and squat!! i should pause squat next deload. maybe there should be a paused lifts mini next challenge... and YAY! gym frandssssssssss
  13. yikes! usually if this happens to me i can tag it back to something i consumed (or didn't). either that or heat exhaustion - but you're getting into colder weather right? i hope you can identify what might've caused it so you can avoid it happening again!
