Taddea Zhaan - in a galaxy far farscape away


Jord

Recommended Posts

If I had woken up today even more bloated then yesterday I would have called into work sick and stayed home with 5 gallons of water. Luckily I'm back to only being 3# bloated and the sharks seem to have appeared.

Wednesday

[x] work goals - including my new power outfit ;)

[x] water - 3 bottles is starting to be easy, which was the goal, to build confidence

[x] mobility - kind of shortened though because I was late to barbell club after power outfit shopping #WORTHIT

 

Many thanks to all the NF peeps who encouraged me to go bold and colorful for my Friday outfit. I now own my first pair of colored pants, kelley green. I wasn't going to but now I feel like I have to share. I don't do NF forum selfies but you can get the idea:

Wednesday BB Club

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 5:47 PM

 

Suitcase Carry

Set 1: 36 lb × 1

 

Squat

Set 1: 55 lb × 3

Set 2: 80 lb × 6

Set 3: 80 lb × 6

Set 4: 85 lb × 6

Set 5: 85 lb × 6

Set 6: 85 lb × 6

 

Guess what? No more goblet squat Wednesdays. He says depth is good and what not. So now I get hypertrophy back squats. Which was funny until he said, don't complain I've had T and S doing 20 rep sets before. Please dear lord no. Mild doms today because it's been a few weeks since I had anything above 4 reps for back squats. 

 

Close Grip Bench

Set 1: 55 lb × 5

Set 2: 67 lb × 4

Set 3: 67 lb × 4

Set 4: 68 lb × 4

Set 5: 68 lb × 4

Set 6: 68 lb × 5

 

Just repeated last week's close grip to build confidence and work on form and breathing. I've been forgetting to work on my breathing pattern. 

 

Deadlift

Set 1: 135 lb × 3

Set 2: 185 lb × 1

Set 3: 185 lb × 1

Set 4: 185 lb × 1

 

Grip starting to go on these. He said they didn't look terrible. I said they felt close to my 1RM and he said "It went up okay, would be fine for a meet, but yeah, you probably don't want working sets at this weight." Next week is 1RM test!

 

Bent Over Row (Dumbbell)

Set 1: 35 lb × 7

 

Lunge (Bodyweight)

Set 1: 12 reps

 

Sandbag Carry

Set 1: BW (+55 lb) × 1

Set 2: BW (+55 lb) × 1

Set 3: BW (+55 lb) × 1

 

Continue to like the sandbag carry. I enjoy that it involves upper body work, which I need. I can't do them running yet, but I aim for a very fast walk.

Hoping to wow them starting my new work project tomorrow. ;) New crowd of people, gotta dress to impress. But at the same time try not to dress smarter than my boss. who wears blazers but much nicer ones/outfits.

I can't even keep my form after 6-8 reps. It's too many! My cardio is seriously lacking.

Where is my cottage in the country damnit! At least I get to drive past horses/cows on my way into the city. I'll have to live vicariously through the locals.

There exists a weight you can do for 6-8 reps. It may be light, but it exists.

I can. I choose not to. But I don't know that I would want to. Her clothes look a lot less comfortable than mine. More formal. But she's also a slight woman and maybe these form fitting suits don't feel stuffy to her. But I would feel like a robot. All of my clothes must flex with my flex. 

 

(also, she's a wonderful friendly person, so I am not judging her clothes, I just wouldn't find them comfortable.)

 

How does your boss dress?

I had a work expo all morning and I had to wear a tie and blazer all morning while presenting...I've never more appreciated my typical jeans and a polo that I usually wear. Glad my boss straight up wears jeans and an untucked tshirt so even I can feel "dressed up" compared to that normally.

My ex worked in environmental and did field work, I can picture these exact outfits haha. I am sure you are in fact dressing smarter than most in the field. Cuz you got STYLE.

Seriously!! I am now very careful about which blazers I buy. Especially as I build up my shoulders. I have a significant appreciation for range of motion while in clothes LOL. And I had linebacker shoulders to begin with.

It's scary! I am officially out of the house and ready to present to the world my colored pants. I'll let you know if anyone throws rotten fruit at me. ;)

Yes, sooooo boring. This is why standard cardio isn't for me.

Loooovve your outfit, great choice! N'thing stretch everything, the whole size of my being seems to change based on workouts through the week (I've never had the shark bloat, phew!), and I don't think it is psychological ala imaginary lat syndrome.

 

To be fair I don't get any cramps or pain or anything. I just notice that I have a monthly change in my weight and I can now see the pattern on my weight graph. 

 

I agree that clothes should be able to accommodate bloat changes! Soooo nice.

Busy day today so my short update is that I skipped cardio for physical and mental health reasons yesterday. I worked on my gardening journal instead:

 

s2rX4ncrFCMnr0mCKlQhMEuCoWjh3ixWQJzxxjCW

 

still working on this layout page and have fully decided on all the herbs yet. I also have a second page for what goes on when these finish.

No one threw fruit at me. V. disappointing. Also, was in the meeting all day so I haven't been around anyone who would say anything about my clothes. But I'll let you know. ;)

That's the idea! I wish I had done this last year. I do remember some things I learned from last year, but could use a lot more info. I'm thinking about switching to the square foot method to maximize space next year. Right now everything is in rows. I've literally just been too lazy to stagger my plantings and if I marked it out in a grid with string that would help me to feel like doing staggered plantings. Like this instead of rows: 

 

x        x        x

     x        x

x        x        x


Also, I already amuse myself because I forgot on the third pic that I had drawn creepin' eyes next to the line about planting a creepin' perennial, and I just saw it again.

He does.... LOL He quietly mentioned last week that he's vaguely sort of maybe interested in doing a bujo of his own! I mentions TD's garden one since he's master minding ours this year... he is...very....curious :D
