  4. I have until tomorrow to decide...BSS also make my booty work hard.. Thanks! It feels good to be back on a schedule!
  5. Hahahaha!
  6. More like what haven't we done! We had to tear out the horse hair plaster, so we took it down to the studs, replaced a couple of those, and worked out way back up. We did All the work ourselves, so yeah, we are finding that we...ee messed up some of it. Oops. We still have some finish stuff to do, but we are almost complete. 5 years in... Still, though, it was a sound financial decision. But there is more than a little of my blood and sweat in this house. Functional cardio sweat? Maybe...
  7. Well done fitting that in! Good dedication. I think that it's fantastic that you are helping your son with his badge. Fitness goals are hard, your support will only help him.
  8. Excellent kitty news! I would give chalk a go to see if that helps your grip, also.
  9. Welcome! My house is in a state of perpetual renovation, also.
  10. How did your week go?
  11. Tacos are magical.
  12. THIS. SO MUCH this. Also - solidarity on the sickness, woman. Been there.
  13. Yesterday's Training (in pounds) goblet squats, DB 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 52.5 - which brings me up to the max on my adjustable DBs. I really like them as a sometime substitution (only BB squats 2x per week), but with no further progression am pondering future options. Taddea has helped...I haven't made up my mind what to do, yet. Possibly keeping Goblet squats but switching to paused. Possibly switching to weighted Bulgarian split squats (I've done them before and liked them). This may get me the single leg work that Taddea reminded me that I needed. Deadlift 2 x 5 at 45 rdl 1 x 5 at 95 1 x 5 at 135 1 x 5 at 165 Weekly Wrap up: Calories - CHECK! High for this week was 1780 calories, the low was 1729. Average is 1758. Lifted 4 x this week. CHECK! Tracked both every day. CHECK! Pose on other nerds' threads. CHECK! I'm going to go ahead and say that I am flirting with perfection. :-)
  14. Aw, thanks, sQl. I haven't conquered it, but I am working hard to get there... Cut buddies! One day... One. Day.
  15. Quoted for TRUTH! Hard training is hard - well done getting it done three times! Allllllllllllllllllll the sleep...
