oof

 

rest day on working out but my lower back is soooo stiff.  I am losing a lot of flexibility as an old gray beard

 

I did log my food.  I am questioning if I got everything and I ate like shit.  Currently on my third glass of bourbon.  I have been eating my stress today

 

amidst an outbreak in inpatient, I was told the patient I was talking to was getting ready to be tested for COVID and should be in isolation.  I was wearing a surgical mask but not an N95.

That was today, and today happened. As long as it stays where it is now, and doesn't follow you into tomorrow, you're good. And if it does, there is the day after tomorrow.

Sorry about the politics stress and the covid on the geriatric ward stress. I hope they get it under control quickly. Er, I mean the covid. But also possibly the politics, though that seems less likely. I hope tomorrow is better for you.

Awww, cutie.  Panzer is the very manliest of cats.  For a fixed cat anyway.  He was quite a specimen 15 years ago lol.  In his old age he barely tolerate me invading the basement to work out.

That is an unusual cat name, and it is a great name. If the attitude he shows in that photo is any indication, he  lives up to his name with grace and style... :)

Panzer is the German tanks in WW2.   He had a brother named Sherman, the American tank in WW2.

 

That's why it's a good name. Panzer clearly has the ability to strike fear in lesser being when he approaches, and he has the body language of someone who knows from experience that if this comes to a fight, he will win. :)

 

(I used to be a history major, in Europe. WW2 is one of the things we spent a lot of time on. ;)

Lol, didn’t mean to mansplain there.  When there is only one left and it’s the German tank I fear people will mistake the theme so to speak. Nazism seemed more like just a historical reference when I got them. I fear now that people will think me sympathetic to that ideology.

I can kind of see why that would be a concern. Nazism and racism has become a lot more prominent in the past decade....

 

And I work with mansplainers. That was nothing like it.  :)

178.1# this morning so up and down.  My goal at this point is not yet reeally to focus on weight as much as the habit of weighing .  I would totally take a Hawthorne effect though!

 

workout, So this one I am gonna let pass as my one non-5/3/1 workout.  Beside doing a few dips to play with new gear, I spent about 10 minutes doing yoga.  WHich I enjoy about as much as stubbing my pinkie toe.  But part of old gray beard status requires some stretching apparently.

 

Logged my food in MFP.  Made OK food choices.  may go over calories with a glass of wine.

Clearly you need to get another cat, for the sake of clarity.
