    Sounds like you should be able to ramp up the learning curve quickly on meal prep, though! I definitely struggled a lot more earlier than I do now to get the quantities right on the first try. Sounds like you'll be an expert level kitchen badass by the end of the 3 months (or just super sick of meal prep).

    Noooo injuries are the pits! Hoping you have a speedy recovery. Maybe cocktails help the healing process?

    01/21/2018. Never forget. Hahahaha I love framing it like that! It was actually 630, since I did 10 reps on the last set (juggernaut always finishes with an AMAP). On the plus side, only jumping by 10 pounds for 3x8 instead of the 25 it should be will be super easy next week! I see what you did there. And I like it. Indeed. It was a less than 10% error (235 instead of 220), for whatever that’s worth! Haha yes! Badass, not stupid.

    I love doing this too!!! Subtle subversion with word choice, the only rebellion I’m actually bold enough to undertake. Also, a humor author I love uses “feeling stabby” all the time in her writing - I feel like you’d really enjoy her work (Jenny Lawson, she has a lot of humorous takes on living with mental illness).

    Thursday: Hit target calories and protein, every day: Yes, I followed plan near exactly. Sleep 8+ hours a night, 6+ days a week: A little less than 8, but I woke up a bit before my alarm so we'll call it a kinda sorta success here. Get pre-gym morning routine down to about 15 minutes: About 30 minutes again - I need to actually grab my grab-n-go breakfasts and GO to get the time any lower. Will try this week with greek yogurt and banana pancake sandwiches. Do your scheduled workouts, adjusting as needed: Yep, did squats complete with an oops - due to user error with my juggernaut spreadsheet, all my squats for 5 x 8 were 15 pounds heavier than they were supposed to be! I survived, but my adductors were whiney all weekend as a result. Start tracking how focused and productive you feel at work: Started adding a third dimension to my tracking - fun! Focus: 4, Prod: 3, Fun: 4 Friday: Hit target calories and protein, every day: Yes, despite negotiating a catered lunch at work for food options AND traveling to Houston. Sleep 8+ hours a night, 6+ days a week: Around 8 Get pre-gym morning routine down to about 15 minutes: About 30 minutes again. Do your scheduled workouts, adjusting as needed: Yep, did rings and aerobics. Start tracking how focused and productive you feel at work: Only a half day! Focus: 4, Prod: 4, Fun: 4 Saturday: Hit target calories and protein, every day: Nope, chipotle chips to go with my burrito bowl were too tempting. Sleep 8+ hours a night, 6+ days a week: Around 8. Sunday: Hit target calories and protein, every day: Nope, a cereal bender happened. Oh well, back on the wagon this week, we'll call the past two days a refeed. Sleep 8+ hours a night, 6+ days a week: Around 9 - woke up after 8 with my alarm, silenced it and got more sleep. Guess I needed it? Lol.

    Every time you abbreviate stability ball, I envision a ball you either: 1) use as a stabbing implement or 2) stab as a means of catharsis (like a large pin cushion). Just so you know.

    Sooo excited to see the results of the movement flow!!

    Way to go!!! I’ll enjoy all y’all progressing on OHP vicariously, since I’m on an indefinite break from upper body lifting for gymnast-y stuff.

    YESSSSSSSS. All the food themed challenges!!!
  10. Mike Wazowski: The Mac n Cheese Chronicles, Phase 1

    Guilty as charged. So guilty. Neither had I!!! It was a happy accident of using it for superior macros and then...it was really good! (FYI, I use Hoosier hill farms peanut butter powder, which is no sugar added, I think PB2 has some added so you'd probs want to hold off on sugar until after you added all the peanut-y goodness assuming I'm even right about PB2 having sugar and gosh this parenthetical got super long and off the rails). Huzzah!!! MW takes Boston, date TBD! This is the most wholesome collection of gifs I've seen. A++++

    Ya, it reminded me of that scene in "Inside Out" where Joy realized that all the best moments came right after Sadness (am I deriving life insights from a children's movie? Yes, and I'm ok with that). Thanks! I did make it myself, it was a mixture of brown sugar, coconut aminos, peanut butter powder, actual peanut butter, rice vinegar, lime juice, sriracha and toasted sesame oil that I added to the pan, tasting and adjusting til I was pretty happy with it. I used the PB powder for macros, but turns out it was also a huge win because it helped thicken the sauce so I didn't need to mess around with cornstarch or flour. Sounds like a plan! I definitely will hit up you Northeast when I travel up that way next (probably for dance, because let's be honest, that's probably 50%+ of my travel).

    GAAAHHHHH SO EXCITED YOU CAN SQUAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! Love the level-up framing on meal prep. And I'm wondering if maybe the increase in calories will be something like a reverse diet (goal not to gain weight, but get metabolic activity back up) for you? You'd been sorta cutting for a while, right? As my kinda sorta GF* says, "The only people with scales in their kitchens are bodybuilders and drug dealers" guess you get to be part of the club now! *She's a bodybuilder, no offense meant by the joke.

    Woo, bench AMRAP!! I definitely find that 5's and 3's are easier to hit higher AMRAPs than 10s and 8s when running juggernaut, looks like maybe you'll find the same thing? (Not that I'm really running it currently, I'm only using it once a week for lower body lifts).
  14. Raptron: Business as Usual

    Woooooo!!! To both technique fixes and bidding goodbye to 10's - there's something extra draining about high rep sets to me. Gymnastics meet and job applications in the same day? That's a high-achieving Saturday! Ballroom Mike says always.

    My condolences for your loss. So glad you're here, and thank you for the reminder and great definition for self care.
