That is hilarious! lol

 

And even funnier because we watched Despicable Me 2 last night for family movie night. :tongue:

 

Seriously, that makes me laugh every time I look at it. Somehow it just speaks you swampling. :D

Ok, just a quick check in as I am EXHAUSTED! :wacko: This has been a loooooong day. Fun, but long.

 

I was going to put in the details of Saturday, but I am just too dog gone lazy right now. So, suffice it to say that Saturday was tracked and the goals were met including the clutter project (I sorted and tossed magazines). Fluids were right at 64 oz, and macros were all within range.

 

As for Sunday it is a rest and refeed so no tracking is involved. I did hit my water and there was only one of these....eating-chocolate-bunny.gif(cough)

I will admit to eating ONE chocolate egg. No, not bite size either. :tongue:

 

Ready to CRUSH Monday & Chest & Arm Day! :triumphant:  Let's take on week 2 guys!

Chest & Arms

(working sets only)

Flat DB Press:   4 sets of 6 (50 lbs)(5 lb raise), 2 sets of 16 (30 lbs total)

Incline DB Press:   3 sets of 8 (40 lbs), 2 sets of 15 (30 lbs total)

DB Curls:   3 sets of 6 (15 lbs each arm), 2 sets of 16 (10 lbs each arm)

Lying Tricep Extensions:   4 sets of 6 (25 lbs total), 1 set of 20 (20 lbs total)

 

 

This is very much like doing squats first. Raises on the bench press seriously tire out for inclines and inclines are harder (for me anyways) anyway. But, still making some progress. This could show more but I am holding back. Teaching myself something different this time. In the past I forced raises. This time I am deciding on raises as I go and not pushing quite as hard as I know I could. I like it. I feel more confident about the raises.

 

Ok, week 2, let's kick some butt!

Congrats on the raises - and also on making a deliberate decision when to raise and when not to, not pushing no matter the cost. :encouragement:

 

Those are still impressive numbers, my friend! :)

You know, the nice thing is, I could decrease the number of sugar monster slaying days from last week and still meet my goal for this week. ;) But I'll do my best! That's why I decided not to have the FC get me one of my weekly chocolate doses. Because I really don't know what will be in store for me at the office this week. So I'd rather start my work week tomorrow with one point already safely scored. :)

 

Monday turned out to be kind of productive towards the end, although I was off to a slooow start (until about 4 p.m... ahem. :redface-new:

Thank you! :)

Sorry for being AWOL guys. Have had internet problems since last night, kept going on and off sporadically and I stopped trying to post anything after the third time it got erased. :rolleyes: I think it is finally fixed so YAY!

 

And due to the fact that BOTH of my baby girls have been having a BAAAAAAAAAAAAD day (since dawn broke to be exact) Leg Day was moved to tomorrow. But I did squeeze in a quick Bellyfit (sans yoga) (Bellyfit Spirit) while the little gremlins were napping. Unfortunately it didn't last NEAR long enough and that is why the yoga was nixed. They aren't sick (saints be praised), I just think their fathers work schedule is getting to them as well.

 

Water is good so far and we will see how the day goes to determine any hope of getting anything done on the clutter project.

 

Hope everyone is having an excellent Wednesday!

Also, of all the threads I read yours is the most consistent. Given all the hiccups, complications, and hurdles I've watched you power through... you always come back as quickly as any mortal could.
