  1. Been active, haven't been posting. Calories have been good - lower than 2000 every day (the actual goal is 1780, but this is acceptable). Scale is heading in the right direction. I've run from zombies, biked, or lifted most of the days. I will do better at posting, because it is good for me.
  2. Sunday: forgot to track calories, but ate like I had a modicum of sense, so no worries Today: Lifted. In pounds: Squat 2 x 5 at 45 1 x 5 at 95 (hello, warm-up sets...I've missed you) 5 x 5 at 100 OHP 2 x 5 at 45 stopped because I slept strangely on my shoulder and ohp hurt. Because of course it did. DL 2 x 5 at 85 - no back pain at all on this. Calories for today: 1732
  3. of your most recent comic choice: rejected gifs:
  4. Thursday, ran from zombies, 1732 calories Friday, 2033 calories (although it was dinner out, so hard to say) Today, lifted - in pounds Squats 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 95 Bench 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 70 DB row 3 x 8 at 30 per side Then I walked with a friend and her kids...just a mile, and we strolled, so it doesn't count as cardio (my heart rate can't possibly have gone up), but it was nice.
  5. As always, wise Urgan is wise. New job stress is A THING...for a long time! Plus your body is recovering like whoa from some real stuff. I think that after we started lifting, we really start to "know" our bodies better, so when we are injured/sick/tired we feel it more. But that's a good thing, really! Because we can recover when we need to...even if it is frustrating. Enjoy this cat...that the giphy says is also wise.
  6. Midweek update: Sunday...lifted (in pounds). Squats 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 85 Bench 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 60 DB Rows 3 x 8 at 30 each side Monday jogged with zombies Today, lifted Squats 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 90 OHP 2 x 5 at 45 5 x 5 at 65 DL 1 x 5 at 75 Calories: Sunday, forgot to track, but did okay Monday: 1735 Tuesday: 1687 Wednesday: 1801
  7. It was a struggle to start that early... but here is the proof of his family's dedication...and Irish coffee *is* a coffee drink. Totally acceptable for 8 o'clock in the morning.
  8. Butt doms are both the best and the worst at the same time. It hurts so bad good awful great much. Looking forward to vacay pics!
  9. A good gif can say so much... If only... It didn't take you long to catch on to my wily ways... Hahaha... What if I had been more specific with my units... A gif per hour? A gif per word (can you imagine?!) A gif per goal per post? We'll stick with "a gif per whenever I feel like it", lol
  10. Random responses: Alanis Morissette ruined us all. Smart to look into being of a certain age. Menopause is a T H I N G. You got this. We are here for you!!! Hugs.

  13. No theme, just gifs. I'm not going no words (although that one was fun)...just whatever gifs I feel like including. I do not promise that they will all make sense. Goals: 1. Lift 3x per week (still at rehab weights - allllllllllmost healed, though) 2. Zombies Run! 2x or more per week (walk/jog/run quick, there are ZOMBIES!) 3. Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut. 1780 calories or below. 4. Sneak in some yoga. Unrelated to my goals, but I want to brag:
