The Roadside Inn: General Chatter


Recommended Posts

The olympics start the day before this challenge ends. The Mini Challenge is based on the Olympic Torch Relay, and as one travels along the road, one stops at Inns along the way.

As you enter, you notice the place is pleasant, not too crowded, not too empty. It's not too warm or too cool. It's apparently much bigger on the inside. The bartender has plenty of time for you, and seems to know better than you do what you want, and they absolutely have it available. So sit down, take a load off, and place your order.

First round's on the chaplain:

Popping by for the bi-challenge PVP shout-out...

 

Weighing in tomorrow, the next 10/12lbs in 10/12 weeks weight-loss PVP kicks off with a SUMMERTIME MADNESS edition!! B) 

 

I have no idea what that means but it sounds pretty damn cool.  Did I mention there'll be slick a Miami Nights soundtrack, with lots of sunshine and low-cal frosty beverages?

Not gonna Challenge anymore for now. I took Steve's words and started thinking in days and years. Challenges are just short-term distractions.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Well, I learned a terrible lesson this weekend.   The gym I go to doesn't have barbells, so I've been using either dumbbells or weight machines; which works ok for most of my exercises, but gets awkward on RDLs because I can only use dumbbells and round numbers.  This week I really wanted to just go up by 5lbs for my RDLs; so I used a Smith machine....... horrible, horrible, mistake.   It threw off my normal, (safe,) movement so much  I'm pretty sure I did most of my sets with just my lower back, and am miserably sore today.  

 

Guess I'm sticking with dumbbells until I can get a bar.

Does no one drink iced coffee?? Just brew it a little extra strong and throw it over ice. 

 

Sure, but I can make that myself. I don't need a magical bartender for that.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.
