  1. Thanks brother. I can't say I've had more encouraging support. Thanks brother. Thanks. Oh definitely. It's really easy to backslide. Thanks brother. Monday November 21, 2022 I've had a lot of trouble motivating myself lately. I've only Shovelgloved once. Not a whole else going on otherwise. Peace out.
  2. YOU CAN DO IT SHAAR! I believe in. you. Sunday November 6, 2022 Today I Shovelgloved for 25 minutes at 16# and did KB swings for 10 minutes (99 swings) at 24kg. I'm revisiting the positivity goals from my early challenges. You'd think after all these challenges I'd be the most positive MFer ever. Anyway, I've started keeping a gratitude journal a week ago. I'm also focusing on expressing my gratitude to others. There are a surprising number of people who support me including all of you fine folks. Thank you; you've helped make me a better person. Yesterday I went to the funeral of a woman I've never met. It was my wife's brother's wife's mother or my sister-in-law's mother. By all accounts this woman was viciously mean and Grandma thought it would be an empty chapel, so we went to support my SIL. The only people there were her two children, their spouses and people like us who came to support them. My point here is that I'd better keep working on these positivity challenges. Peace out Nerd friends.
  3. Thursday November 3, 2022 Still ShovelGloving. Not much else going on. The students have been challenging me to challenges at recess - I can still go across the monkey bars, can shimmy across a long horizontal bar, and can hang upside down on the monkey bars. If only they were still running Hammer Races, I think I'd be ready.
  4. Tuesday November 1, 2022 I've been Shovelgloving, but not everyday more like almost every other day, I'm using a 16# hammer for 20 minutes and do 2-handed Kettlebell swings at 24 kg for 10 minutes. Soreness has migrated to my mid-back. I think I'll be done being sore soon. Halloween was a huge deal in our neighborhood. The slothlings were off on their own for the first time so I got to sit around and hand out candy.
  5. Moreso the shoulders. Thanks. I think I gave it to them; I've the last few weeks sick. I'm glad you're here sister. Willie Nelson is amazing. The second slothling wouldn't fall asleep if I sang Johnny Cash so I had to switch up my repertoire to Willie.
  6. Monday I Shovelgloved - 20 minutes swinging the sledge and 10 minutes swinging the kettlebell. Since then my arms have been cripplingly sore. Hopefully I'll be able to go again tomorrow (Friday). The rest of the family is sickly, maybe the flu. So we haven't been doing anything. Peace out Nerds.
  7. To quote the great Tank, "Fix it with Shovelglove!" Thanks! Thanks Brother Jedi. Woot! Consider them shoveled! Thanks Brother.
  8. I started with ShovelGlove and in my time of need I feel an undeniable urge to go back to the start.
  9. Dang, I missed the whole challenge. The pink robots destroyed city. That was a horrendous man-cold, it took about four weeks to stop coughing and start feeling human again. I did my first workout last night. I felt tired and weak, but it'll come back. Looks like I'll be thinking of a new theme.
  10. Wednesday Sep 21, 2022 I've been battling a ferocious man-cold for the last week. First one since masks became a thing. Also, it's that we're back to the days of coming to work sick and muscling through it. Although I did take yesterday off and slept. Before I got sick I was keeping up with the every other day workouts. I'll try to do replies tomorrow. Peace out.
  11. Ahhh. That’s who you are. I’m glad you’ve returned too.
  12. Hooray for doing the things! It might be bad air quality from the smoke blowing in.
  13. Wednesday Sep. 7, 2022 School is all consuming right now. It was a pretty good day though. Also I have the best teammates this year. Did I Discipline My Body? Conditioning Warm up + 6 rounds of One-handed Kettlebell snatch at 16 kg X 4/4 A real short session because I ran out of time, but it felt great and I wish I could have kept going. I also did 6 sets of Lateral Band Walks because I want a perky booty. Peace Out Nerd Friends.
  14. It won't be bad at all having you around. The guy who wrote "How to Speak Minnesotan" died this last week. It was a blow to linguists every where. It might not be as bad as you'd think. Hahaha. If it has tater tots I am in! It's good to have you here Raze. That's an OG Nerd avatar; did I miss a name change while I was absent? Hah. Thanks for the welcome. Those F'n robots are going to get what they deserve. I'm glad you're here Puck. I can't believe I forgot about Shovelglove. I should dust off my hammer. I love that MAMIL is my legacy.
  15. Monday September, 5 2022 - Labor Day Chill day. I mostly sat inside and pretended to prep for the first day of school. Discipline my Body? A simple workout - I set the before benchmarks on a few lifts Trap bar deadlift - 200# / 91kg Double Kettlebell Front Squat - 16/16 kg / 35/35# Kettlebell Clean & Press - 16/16 kg - 12s might actually be better Pull Ups - no; Inverted Rows - yes. Curl Bar - 75# / 34kg Tuesday September 6, 2022 First day of school. It went well enough. Discipline my Body? No - the first day is hard. Peace out nerd friends.
