  1. Hmm, looks like it's time for a catch up post. Friday: I got up at 4:45 to lift, but I was freaking exhausted, and I didn't really trust myself under the bar, so I ended up doing a half hour yoga session from youtube. I took off at lunch to go tour the daycare that we chose for the baby. It seems like a nice place, but a random child did call me dada, I nearly jumped over the wall and ran at that point. Saturday: The baby woke up at 5:00, because who needs to sleep in on a Saturday. I took care of her until the rest of the house woke up ,then I did a little bit of yard work, mostly cleaning up bushes around the front yard, there wasn't a whole lot else to do since it hasn't rained much lately. If this keeps up I'll have to start watering the grass soon. FMP and I went out to eat that night for our anniversary, we tried a new place, it was slightly upscale without being too nice. The food was delicious, but what really won me over was that they have the best scotch selection I've come across anywhere local, and the prices weren't bad either! Needless to say, I'll be back there in the future. Sunday: The baby let me sleep until 5:45 yesterday, which is weird because she sleeps until 6:30 or later on weekdays, so I got up and took care of her again until the rest of the house started stirring. I was so tired by this point that I went back to bed when FMP got up and slept for another couple of hours. Apparently I'm so out of practice of sleeping that I didn't do it right and ended up pinching a nerve in my neck, so now my neck and shoulder hurt whenever I look to my left. Needless to say I didn't do a whole lot after that, just some general tidying up and washing clothes, I spent a good bit of the day playing minecraft which was nice. Today: No workout this morning, since my neck/shoulder still hurts, it's not as bad as yesterday though. I had planned on getting up to do some foam rolling and a general warmup routine, but I decided sleep was more important once my alarm went off. Now for a morning full of coffee, and hopefully I can sleep tonight.
  2. Do you hold the lunges for a minute each or AMRAP them? I'm a little terrified by my pressure cooker, I've had if for three or four years now, but haven't used it more than twice. After typing that out it made me realize that I should probably get rid of it. Anywho, keep up the good work!
  3. That's the best thing after a move, once you've got things unboxed and you can just stop for a while and look around.
  4. How about we wait until just before somebody steps on us, then we jump out and surprise them. That way we don't get stepped on. Thank you sir! A friend of mine posted on facebook yesterday about their two month old saying " Weren't you just born and/or haven't I always had you?? " Which seems pretty appropriate. Wednesday May 18, 2016 Squats: BW X 10 45 X 5 75 X 5 105 X 5 145 X 5 X 5 OHP: 45 X 5 85 X 5 X 5 DL: 215 X 5 X 3 Nothing special, but I got through my entire workout this time. Getting up fifteen minutes earlier helped a lot. Everything felt good, I can tell that I need to work on my grip strength, that seems to be my limiting factor for DL's right now. The best solution to that is to do more deadlifts, which sounds like a win/win to me! Not a whole lot else going on today, I need to get a report out, but I need to proofread it one more time, and I hate proof reading. Anywho, time to get to work.
  5. I blew through an article last week about creatine, what I took away from it was that some people are predisposed to retain more creatine naturally, for those people taking a supplement helps, for people who don't retain it, it's probably not doing a lot. I'm in the latter, creatine has never done anything for me.
  6. Welcome aboard, this show is going to be as low key as possible. Thank you! I see you're still rocking the world. Thanks, and congrats to you too! I've always been a morning workout kind of guy, I tend to make excuses to not workout if I wait until I get home from work. The lack of sleep thing is the other problem, finding that happy zone can be a little tough. Thank you sir, and congratulations to you as well! Tuesday Update: I've got to go to the grocery store tonight after work, sometime today I'm going to put a meal plan together for the rest of the week. Other than that I don't have a whole lot going on today. Well, except for one thing...
  7. That is already the theme of my challenge too. Glad to have you back for the challenge!
  8. Man was it really 2013 when we had the last server?!
  9. HG!!! Thanks! It was kind of a spur of the moment thing which I'm regretting a little bit because I'm not able to give it my all, but it is helping me be better because I probably wouldn't have worked out today. Now to do the things!!! (After I do the write-up). Apparently planning to do things was a terrible idea stupid Robert Burns and his appropriate poetry.... Everything went against my plans last week. The cats kept us up all one night, I went to workout one morning and something had pooped on my workout mat, little Joey-Joe-Joe Jr. Shabadu (that's the baby's name) didn't want to nap all weekend. It was a wild week. So as the goals go. Goal 1: I only got in one workout last week and it was pared down. Goal 2: I did mow everything Saturday, I didn't get to finish my weedeating though due to angry baby, but I did upholster my bench yesterday and it turned out pretty well, so now I don't have to bench press on a bare piece of plywood anymore. It's not exactly yardwork, but it is something I've been wanting to finish. Goal 3: I ate ok most of the week, I didn't track all week though, and FMPs birthday was last week, cake and ice cream were consumed due to that. I didn't track at all this weekend, so that was a bust, but I didn't eat terribly. Still, I need to do better. Goal 4: I got my ass handed to me by the first three goals, do you really think I'd add a fourth?! Monday 5/16/16 Workout: Squats: BW X 10 45 X 10 135 X 5 X 5. And that was it, I ran out of time. FMP and I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning (11:00 pm) watching the final episodes of Parks and Rec (I had never watched the final season before) Because of that I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I think I'm going to move my alarm back to 4:45 to give me a little more wake up time before I need to be lifting. I've got all of my lunches cooked for the week, and will probably be going grocery shopping tonight for my other meals. Other than that, not a lot going on today. And now I need to get to work!
  10. Whooo! Harry Potter funland! I want to eat everything you listed up there, it sounds pretty amazing to me. It's always great when you walk into a hotel gym and it turns out to be a nice gym. That one sounds pretty sweet. And now that you mention it, I feel like a Jack Lalaine museum should be a gym. P.S. I'm following. P.P.S Hello!
  11. Lifting talk, check! Minecraft talk, check! Hudsucker Proxy reference, check! I'm late, but caught up and now following! Keep up the good work!
  12. Ahoy, friend! A kind nod to you! Good to hear, it's nice to know that I'm not treading new ground here. I feel like setting a day to do yardwork and just knocking it all out at once is better than trying to do bits and pieces throughout the week. It seems like every time I decide to mow on a week night something comes up and it ends up getting pushed to the weekend anyway. 5/9/16 Stronglifts: Deadlift: 215 lbs X 5 reps X 3 sets OHP: 75 lbs X 5 reps X 3 sets If this workout looks a little strange, it is. The baby woke up about the same time I did and it took about a half hour to get her back to sleep, so I was pushed for time. I kept telling myself I'd just lift tonight, but I decided instead to cut squats and do a little extra on the DL so I could be done with the workout quickly and still get some decent work in. This is probably the life I'm going to have to live for the next few months anyway. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go talk Game of Thrones with my coworkers.
