  1. Oh, I like stompingground! Everyone there is super nice and it’s pretty laid back. I pop in there during the barbell class on Tuesdays every now and then, mostly to harass Charles, but also to lift.
  3. Hey, I was also a teenager in the 90's and have a Toy Story lunchbox from that time period that looks strikingly similar to this! The really weird thing? Mine is currently holding MARKERS!
  4. I just read A Wrinkle In Time. It was actually my second go at it, because I lost interest the first time. I powered through it and was not really impressed. I'm going to read the second book because I have it, but won't force myself to finish it if I lose interest again. I know I'm gonna get crap for this... But, I still
  5. I love this. Please always listen to your heart and your body. You'll excel at whatever you choose to do. 1982 checking in! I have been feeling really nostalgic lately. I've been binging on 90s music videos, cartoons, TV shows, and books I read (or should have read) as a young adult, while I'm recovering from my back surgery. It warms my heart to see so many of my peers here!
  6. Oh, I completely forgot about pb2! I think I even have some in the pantry. I'll have to check to see how old it is. I'm going to do these modifications for tomorrow's oats. THANKS!!
  7. My overnight oats and coffee are too many calories for the morning, but I loooooooooooooooooooooooooove them. I think I'll have to cut down on the amount of stuff I put in the oats. Boooooooo! I suppose I could drop ~100 cal by not using maple syrup... IDK. I'll get it figured out.
  8. Whoa! Pretty charts... My nerdy heart is exploding.
  9. Morning Nerds! I haven't been studying. I'm running out of time before my surgery, so it's time to panic and cram. Well, not really panic... But I am going to try to fast track the studying to get it done. I want to update a little more, but I'll have to do it later. Things at work are still a bit crazy, so I gotta focus on that for a bit. I'll check in again soon!
  10. This is one of a few different reasons I got an IUD. I haven't had cramps or a period since February (about 6 months after it was put in), and I won't have them for FIVE YEARS! Seriously so in love with my IUD.
  11. Here's a website that matches athletes with physical therapists: http://www.clinicalathlete.com/ I remembered reading about it a while back on reddit, but it took me forever to find the site. And as it turns out, there's only one PT listed in Austin... But, she sounds like a badass, so she may be worth checking out: http://www.clinicalathlete.com/whitneywelsch/ Here's a bonus pic of my pup too!
  12. When I'm training to compete I mostly focus on the protein macro, but otherwise I'm the same. I think focusing on quality as much as possible will help align my macros without extra effort anyway.
  13. Yeah, I kind of had this revelation tonight. On top of everything else, I'm also having some anxiety around finances, so adding the stress of trying to get up early to get to the pool is not a great idea. So, next challenge will be all about recovery and getting back into a workout routine of some sort. I'm also focusing on quality calories and trying to stick to a small deficit, instead of macros. Still logging though! Thank you guys for being here for support and as voices of reason. You guys are the best!
  14. It's gonna be hot in Sacramento this weekend, but probably nice and cool in the bay area. I'm kinda jealous.
  15. SO SORRY! Work has been kinda crazy because I work in a budget office and we are closing out last fiscal year while getting this fiscal year going. I mostly update here when I have a few moments to spare during my work day. I'll be better! Goal 1 Progess I have not been following my study schedule (which is probably another reason I haven't updated), so I'm a little behind. I'm going to spend extra time on school work this weekend after I get back from Reno. I'm still confident I'll get my Finance class done by the 26th, I just have to work a little harder now. Goal 2 Progress I've actually been logging my food! Even when I eat too much! I'm hoping this habit sticks so I can dial in my eating a little. Goal 3 Progress I haven't gone to the pool yet this week. I haven't been sleeping well, so I keep sleeping in. I finally got my CPAP set up, so hopefully my sleeping will improve and I'll want to get up early again. I still need to get to the pool though, so I may decide to go in the evening. The evening times for the local pool kinda suck though (7:30 - 9:00). I'll figure something out.
  16. I'm not here to try to change anyone's mind about chiro, but I've been reading some really interesting stuff about it recently that makes me leery about going to one, especially for an extended period of time. People who constantly go back for "adjustments" just never seem to be okay between them. It's a weird practice with a sordid history. HOWEVER, I am no doctor, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
  17. I really, really miss doing these. Maybe I can win my titles back after my recovery. Best of luck, fellow Warriors!
  18. Also, that gif of Hillary just gave me life.
