  1. Grimalkin's Cruel Tutelage Did a bench and a DL day of pyramid up to 95%, then 3x12 at 60%. Feels doable and when I lose access to the heavy weights, I'll just do 5x12 and then HIIT accessories. C'est la vie covid. Octavia's Workbench Moss agate and copper paired bracelets for a friend in soil conservation. Note the 4 star beads on the one piece, and the pair of star beads offset by a third star bead opposite the strand on the second piece. This lets the meditator cycle 108 beads by breathing/counting/chanting 27 times on one bracelet in their primary hand (with a single star bead to mark halfway through and a pair of star beads as a guru bead), and then count up to four repetitions of that 27 by cycling through the four star beads in their non-dominant hand. Kinda a white girl version of nikka juzu. https://www.instagram.com/p/CHQVjJhDVUH/?igshid=tctjrvjdqe9k Garden of Sanctuary Helped a member of my covid bubble start the cleanup and refitting of an attic space to turn into an entheogen grow room / meditation space. I don't have the patience for most of the tetchy cultivation steps involved, but i can lift heavy totes and haul trash, as long as they're willing to play mycologist.
  2. Texas winter man, they sound good for the soul. Kuddos on the social support you've built around yourself, that sounds like sanity!
  3. Nah, just Wisconsin winter running isn't my jam. Spring through summer, I'm your guy for a few plodding 5k's a week. How's quarentine life treating you with social support?
  4. Which one are you doing? But nah, I have an elliptical and I have cardio lifting for this winter. I'm debating grabbing snow shoes or a set of nordic skis for funsies this winter, but I'm not sure I trust myself to use the things enough to justify yet another hobby investment.
  5. Nah, probs just go to 50% of 1rm, and grind 20 rep sets with 10lb increases every week. Come out of the home gym hiatus with a better base to return to low rep work in a few month. He's literally the best.
  6. Grimalkin's Cruel Tutelage Like the [Muscle Magus] of Pallas, I'm a bit confused as gyms potential shut down and covid risk is spiking. The home gym is coming along, even while I'm not ponying up the cash to equip more than 300ish lbs of weights. The plan is to outfit the gym slowly until we get a firm shutdown order, and keep using lysol on everything we touch at the gym until then. So I'm switching to a high volume plan in order to make 300lbs meaningful for my lifts. Still disoriented by the pending loss of my third space, and kissing end of year 1rm's goodbye again. It's okay to observe small losses, and those don't invalidate the massive losses experienced by my friends and neighbors and family. Octavia's Workbench I managed to salvage a dead necklace of my roommates and use the spare parts with some rose quartz to put together the piece below. It's for a cabaret singer friend, and I wanted her to have a little bling with her zen. I had trouble getting a decent photo, and the smarter thing woulda been to wait for better sun, but meh. https://www.instagram.com/p/CHY230ADu9s/?igshid=n7uyq2tzh1qf Garden of Sanctuary Lovely time last night. Mr lagail has been helping bully me into consistent self-care and last night he banished me to go drum and chant and sundry hippy nonsense. I also brought a yorkie, bc mood. Speaking of hippy shit, anyone use entheogens in their meditation practice? I have my eye on a garden of morning glories for next year, for reasons.
  7. Hey thanks for the kind words folks. Honestly struggling to make this challenge meaningful. I’ve been writing about my fitness on these forums since 2016, and I’m not sure if the spoons investment still makes sense. What’s kept the forum challenges relevant to your needs lately?
  8. I'm so here for covid cuisine pictures
  9. Grimalkin's Cruel Tutelage Ended up doing 90-95% singles for heavy work this week. A bit at a loss as Wisconsin goes into a 3rd wave of the pandemic, and gyms may be closed if sensible leadership is installed tomorrow. I currently go to a YMCA that serves low income communities, and they're unable to enforce their mask rules on the affluent white lifters, whose fees and donations are required to feed low income children. So, I go, I mask, and I spray everything before using it. Meanwhile Mr. Laghail is slowly acquiring pieces of a home gym to get us through, should another lockdown be enforced. Octavia's Workbench So here's the replacement piece! https://www.instagram.com/p/CHGoXIMD6JS/?igshid=f5uhi69y3xdu Garden of Sanctuary Mala was the order of the day yesterday, and I also got a printers drawer hung to hold different meditation aids. Imagine the picture below but stuffed with a rock collection, chunks of wood, and a few small bowls. Olesm's Chess Journal Any dresden fans here? I'm crafting a dresden's milwaukee for my setting and I'd be curious to hear what power groups you find interesting to play with.

    I'm not at all familiar with your work! Is there a place I can experience your writing so I can decide if your patreon is a good choice for me?
  11. Wait, by slink home, do you mean walk upstairs from your basement? Lol
  12. Eh, as long as you post pictures of your pets here on NF, I’m happy!
  13. Hrm, mine too. I work for FIS for the last year. Love the company culture so far, and they do pretty good on work life balance.
