Awesome well-rounded workout! I love barbell rows personally. I don't have them in my new program as a regular thing and kind of miss them. 

 

Thanks!

 

I love them too.  You could always do them on the side :)

I didn't get my second lifting workout done last week, it was all just a bit too much trying to fit everything in; i ran out of hours.

 

I won't get to do anything other than stretch today maybe, i'll be in the car for 6 hours :) so i'll definitely need to stretch.

 

I've done romanian every day, even if it was just looking over a few new words or writing my gratitude for the day.

 

Oh and i gained 1 lb this week (go weight gain!!)

 

The rest of this week will be stressful and busy; off to London on Friday so i really should pack my case.

Ewwwww.... the only thing worse is airplanes...

 

6 hours later and i am global entry approved and pre TSA screened!  no more lines, woot!  i think my bum might have fallen off somewhere in northern ohio and i need to stretch so badly.

 

on Friday i get to do 2 hours to NY then 8 hours to london.  I really hate flying and planes and pretty much everything to do with travel so i'm sure it'll be the best day ever.

Leg extensions and leg curls! Those are fun! :D 

 

Yes they are.  My cat is terrified of me doing leg extensions, the horror & the noise is too much for him.

 

Leg curls are evil, i find them so difficult!

I just got an offer letter from the London school of economics to do an undergrad degree in International Relations.  I must be completely crazy. I'm just going to collect degrees!

Exactly.  I can have multiple degrees that I'm not going to use and in no way actually help me in life :D

I already have 2, so with this next one i can beat you.

 

I also already have more than anyone in my family, which is funny, because i'm pretty sure my whole family thinks i'm stupid.

I am back from my London adventure!!

 

Graduation was lovely.  We walked at least 5 miles a day, no tube for us.  Even the weather was only crappy for 1 day.  

 

I might love walking around in a gown, i feel like an overgrown bat with power.

Well I said it wasn't crappy.. i didn't say wasn't cold; what i should have said was it only rained 1 day.  It was slightly sunny but still freezing!  On tuesday it was sunny enough to take my gloves off :)

In my head all Europe is, is a bunch of old ladies in peasant garbs running though a dense fog to escape a dragons fire, lol

End of challenge recap:

 

I didn't get my hair cut, I ran out of time before my trip.  Maybe next challenge.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed London!  I miss the UK so much and it was nice to see my brother again.

 

I worked out, but not as much as planned.

 

I got a few good rides in on the horse, I'm counting today's training ride in with this challenge as it went very well.  He's coming along nicely and will be back in a full work schedule soon enough.  

 

The romanian learning is also coming along.  I managed to fit more lessons in than I though I would and will definitely be carrying it over to the next challenge.
