Emerald_Dragonfly takes her broken wings and learns to fly


Recommended Posts

I didn't do so well yesterday.  I had a planned social engagement, and let my eating go places it shouldn't.  Moving on. 

 

Today I ate out for lunch, but did okay portion-wise. 

 

I also lifted. 

In pounds:

 

Squats

1 x 5 at 45

5 x 5 at 55

 

Bench

1 x 5 at 45

5 x 5 at 50

 

BB Row

5 x 5 at 50

 

Today's happy thought: I LOVE MY GYM.  I've said it before, I'll say it again: my home gym is amazing.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

If I had your home gym, I would just move a cot in and live in there.

I kinda feel like that sometimes, too.

Yes!  It's not super fancy or anything, just for fun.  Mostly for the husband.  I can make it to the ceiling, but need help getting back down. 

We were looking at this giant wall, and the thingies were super cheap (ebay, maybe?  I forget.)  It took about 4 hours to screw them all in, and *something* had to go on that wall anyway - it may as well have been plywood.

I NEVER KNEW EITHER TIL I MOVED OUT OF MY PARENTS' HOUSE AND READ THE TAG!!! Also, someday I'll have a high-quality mattress, but my current one is just "meh"

 

ETA: looks like the stronglifts are consistently chugging along well!!

I was about to be impressed that he was actually wearing a helmet for these shenanigans. Then I realized it was a welding helmet.. Protect the face not the brain. Good thinking.

 

This analysis suggests he was in fact protecting the most valuable portion of his head. Presumably his teeth.
