  1. Thought I'd share something kind of important... I purposely deadlifted, off the floor, for the first time in 11+ months, and first time ever in front of people. And it was about 582 pounds. Oh... and it was with a partner... who is way stronger than me... but whose max is "only" 450#... so, that means I at LEAST lifted 130# of that... right? https://vimeo.com/189580459 Also, today is my 3 year gymiversary...which is awesome... I am so fortunate to have found such a perfect place for me... with people who love and support me... and with a coach who always goes far above and beyond the job description/pay grade to do what's best for me...

  2. If you arrange it, people will... okay, I can't guarantee that people will come, but I don't think people are ambitious enough to actually set something up.... this is the first time I've been on in 6 months? Maybe? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. So here I am... Minding my own business, trying to mentally prepare for yet another new school year, at yet another new school, and teaching yet another new grade level... And my email starts-a-buzzin'!! I look at it and see something QUITE unexpected! Someone has actually posted on a thread that I follow! And not only that, it's to deliver GREAT news! Welcome back my friend!
  4. Indeed... I found the link above helpful though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just found this yesterday, right after I had a muscle spasm in my back... It was perfect timing: http://www.eattoperform.com/2016/06/04/swish-get-7-ways-keep-going-want-quit-lisbeth-darsh/ If you haven't read things by Lisbeth Darsh... She's pretty inspiring! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Been a while, things have been on and off with diet... Exercise is still 4-5 days a week but heavily scaled because of my hip. Went to a physical therapist that the hip doctor recommended... Full of cyclists... Not for me... So I'm looking around at another place... Chiropractor, massage therapist, and my coach have been keeping me going and feeling good! Coach was gone for Murph on Monday, and I completed the whole thing! Scaled... But I did the whole # of reps! I wish@texastoast was still around to share in my glory... His memory was what kept me going! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 1) sorry I didn't see this, tapatalk hasn't been sending me notifications... 2) Yes@machete we are talking about self loathing... If only I had the "beast mode" voice inside me! 3)Thanks for the story Tank! Yes, sometimes I can beat down that voice... Or prove it wrong... Though right now I have a hard time telling whether my hesitation to work harder or do something more risky in the hip department is honestly listening to my body, or all in my head... As for doing something different, it's something I've toyed with, except that Crossfit is the first sport that I have ever enjoyed doing... The people at my gym are why I keep going, even when I feel so discouraged... Deadlifting and squatting are my favorite things... So it sucks being unable to do them (for now). I'm physical therapist shopping, so hopefully I will find someone who can help me get back to doing what I love! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I don't need hip surgery!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So, been really good with my diet this week! Kinda proud... My planned cheats are dinner tonight - dinner Sunday night... But I've been doing pretty well... Dog had more seizures on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, which means that he's back on his crazy pills... (Crazy as in he has the exact opposite side effects he's supposed to...) Got a phone call for some job openings at a public school near my home, they haven't returned my calls yet about an interview... My coach has asked for my help tomorrow(!) helping him move stuff out of the gym for the construction stuff... I felt so honored, because he never asks for help... Bummer is that tomorrow my Brother in Law is getting married and I am booked all weekend I'm so bummed out... Not only that, but I have to cancel birthday party plans on Sunday (my birthday is next Wednesday) so that I can take my grandmother in law out to dinner I hate obligations... If people tell me things ahead of time, and ask me if I can go... I'm totally cool with it... But when it's "you're expected to attend" or "you have to go" I get pretty crabby... Sigh.

  11. Interview today went well... As usual I didn't feel like I said all I wanted to say, but oh well! Workout this morning was push press with kettle bells, hanging knee raises, and riding on the air dyne bike... Dinner: For your comic enjoyment my dog with peanut butter: https://vimeo.com/162566157 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Doctor took X-rays and has another test to do, but his preliminary diagnosis is this: If this is the case... I am going to need surgery.... I'm terrified. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Some more meals: Workout today with my coach consisted of: -Reverse hyper and bench sit-ups (laying on bench with an ab mat) -5 rounds of office chair olympics (walking forward on your heels while sitting in an office chair +10lbs for about 50 feet then turn, still using heels, and back for 100 feet total) and -military presses at 60# sets of 5 reps, then lat pull downs and hip stretches... Had a dream about my chiropractor... Why is it all the important fitness people in my life (minus my massage therapist) are handsome men? Lol Seeing an orthopedic doctor on Friday, hubby won't let me rest until I see an "actual Doctor" apparently... Sent an ultimatum to my nutritionist... Just saying I need consistency and support, not a new "plan" every week... She hasn't responded yet... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
