    Gemma pares it down. Waaaaayyyyy down.

    yes!! that is a huge hurdle i have only recently gotten over. i know clothes get more comfy the more you wear them so if it's not comfortable out of the box, it will be soon right? not if you don't wear it! exactly like you said. i'm spending money on quality clothes (for the most part) and if they're not comfortable out of the box, back it goes. i've been considering an "excitedness" scale for purchases as well. how excited am i to wear this? i really want to love button-downs but i just never feel comfortable in them. i recently returned one for a different size but i still don't love it. going to have to return it.

    Week 2 – Thursday Treadmill run! Felt much better than last week. 2.62 miles in 31 mins. 68 ft climbed. I ended up not wanting to cook last night so we got chipotle. probably going to pass my 3 restaurant mark this week… I did get in yoga while watching S1 of westworld. workouts: 3/5 yoga: 50 restaurant food: 2 bedtime: 3/5 turned off 20 mins ahead of time - got 7h20m of sleep. maybe that’s the amount my body likes?

    Week 2 – Wednesday DLs! 150x5 150x5 150x5 150x5 180x1 Felt great on these yesterday Toe touchers 15, 15, 15, 15 RDLs 125x5 95x8 95x8 95x8 High step ups 10x8 10x8 10x8 Goblets 40x8 40x8 Got a load of laundry in, started making dinner and heard a loud bang from the basement followed by… rushing water. grabbed my phone and ran down there. it ended up being our neighbor’s water heater but since I found it I called the landlord and turned off their hot water so it would stop gushing. Moved a couple belongings to avoid the puddles. Anyway went back to dinner and yoga and some SNL. workouts: 2/5 yoga: 40 restaurant food: 1 bedtime: 2/5 turned off 20 mins ahead of time but AGAIN only got 7h15m of sleep because I woke up in the middle of the night

    i usually let the TV stay on too long to "just finish this one episode" or if i do turn it off in time, then i lolly gag around opening boxes and doing a fashion show with my new clothes that usually don't fit right anyway lol right?? i've done this a million times with this same tin foil! first thing spouse asked was if it was at the end of the roll (it wasn't)

    also a great place to check out how other people squat and learn the lessons of other nerds: https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/forum/149-form-check/

    a few notes to touch on the YMMV theme: i am more comfortable running/jogging in barefoot shoes. i believe it is because my stride hits the ball of my foot first. i cannot get below parallel in a squat without a super wide stance or a counter weight (goblet squats). and my torso goes forward a lot. my ankle mobility is very poor and/or my physiology doesn't allow it. it is much easier for me to squat in heeled shoes. so what grumble says above definitely does not apply to me. https://photos.app.goo.gl/J5DCrcFor6xmyKgaA not sure if you'll be able to see this but this if from Feb 2017 i think it's the latest vid i have of me squatting. you could try "heels" out by putting plates under your heels when you're in chucks. i also front squat with a very wide stance soooo we all different.

    nice PRs!! i wonder if the chains bench being stagnant has to do with balance/stability problems?

    is it that we just get stuck in habits?? pfffff. i will conquer this. body needs sleep. Week 2 – Monday Used up some personal time before it goes away forever and ever. went to the gym, brought stuff to UPS, got chipotle and ben & jerry’s, watched westworld, picked up my dog, cooked a stuffed pepper soup, and got in some yoga! Squat 90x5x5 Calf raise/stretch 75x8x2 Front squat 65x7x3 High step ups 10x8x2 Leg curls 80x8 80x6 workouts: 1/5 yoga: 10 restaurant food: 1 bedtime: 0/5 Didn’t turn off the TV until 20 mins past Week 2 – Tuesday must’ve shut off my alarm in my sleep. oops. couldn’t make it to the gym but spouse and I did some yoga/stretching. Cooked up some fish and roasted broccoli for dinner. the tin foil on the broiling pan caught fire… maybe was due to pooled olive oil?? no idea. workouts: 1/5 yoga: 30 restaurant food: 1 bedtime: 1/5 turned off 40 mins ahead of time! still only got 7h15m of sleep because I woke up early. urg.
