    Ditto! Think your change of plan was wise. All the best for the rest of the time there.

    How does this work again? [maegs]

    We also have a fair amount of fairs in our country. Wonder who brought it here? Must have been farmers or miners from USA/Canada who came down for the gold rush in the 1800s They usually start of in farming communities, then expand and includes all kinds of things. In Pietermaritzburg and Sabie, we had an annual forestry fair taking turns, one year here, the other year in Sabie. I think it is now only being held here in Pmb, along with the annual Royal Show. We also have the garden show, and Art in the Park, and a car show (actually all kinds of vehicles with and without engines), and then very specific farming shows as well. But we have all kinds of shows/fairs: I know of the Cherry Festival in our Cape Province, The Koeksister fair up in the north, etc. I don't blame you. Great going on gym, and hope your foot is getting better, so you can run again.

    Sara Kingdom Likes Music With Rocks In

    "The Patrician was a pragmatist. He’d never tried to fix things that worked. Things that didn’t work, however, got broken." --Terry Pratchett, Soul Music "Walk with me, Miss Kingdom," said the Patrician. Sara looked at the large clerks lurking in the hallway, and decided this an excellent time for a walk. "What a splendid evening for a stroll," continued Vetinari. "Yes, sir," said Sara. It was in fact a rather nice night. The stars, the warm breeze, the wafting smoke of the fire on the Ankh. (The river Ankh, though nominally composed of, for the sake of argument let's call it water, had a habit of catching fire in warmer seasons.) The gardens were rather nice, too, if one overlooked the fact that they'd been designed by the influential Ankh-Morpork landscape gardener, Bloody Stupid Johnson. Or if one, like the Patrician, found them somewhat reassuring on the subject of, for instance, the average person's common sense and intelligence. (Not optimistic on the subject, merely reassuring.) They walked in what, again for the sake of argument, let's call a companionable silence. (While nominally composed of companionability, it was hard to overlook the fact that one person present was the Patrician and the other was decidedly not. "One mustn't neglect one's daily constitutional, must one, Miss Kingdom?" he said. "Why, that would be like neglecting a good night's rest." "Er, as you say, sir," said Sara, who did not consider herself an expert on the subject. "I'm so pleased you agree." The Patrician clasped his hands behind his back. "We shall certainly continue this discussion in the near future." Sara made a choked sound that, for the sake of argument, let's call a "yes, sir". "Good night, Miss Kingdom," said Vetinari. "You do not wish to be late to bed, I am sure." Sara ran.

    Woot for all those steps! Sounds like a wise plan to skip the burpees and spend some time stretching your tired legs. Enjoy your time in Chicago

    Lateral Planet Takes A Break

    Having a bad day. Just feeling overwhelmed, I'm being pulled in a dozen different directions at once and none of them are very fun directions to be going in. Could really go for a big ice cream sundae and a cozy night of Netflix. Maybe on the weekend.

    Elastigirl Welcomes Autumn

    I have to commend you for learning to do cartwheels. It’s something I’d like to do, but am afraid of ending up in the chiropractor’s. I’d feel constrained trying to do them inside; I’d worry about crashing into something. I wonder if you’d feel more graceful outside.

    I threw the challenge goals out of the window yesterday because I got a NEW TOY!!! I got an iPad for drawing and it's amazing.

    Well yes of course, that's because they already know all the other progressions! It's the same thing as with say lifting a weight, a 20 kg lift will look very different for a person with a max of 50kg vs a max of 20kg.

    I'm sorry about the disappointing deadlift, but WOWZA you're a frickin' beast that are some impressive awesome numbers!

    SooooOOOOOOooooOOOOOoooo... My conference game plan isn't happening. Between criss-crossing the conference hall and exploring Chicago, I'm walking 18-20 thousand steps a day. It's 10:30pm, I just got back to my hotel room, and doing 30 burpees isn't going to happen. I'm much more tired than I anticipated. I did a minimum amount of stretching last night and I'm going to do at least five minutes tonight as some TLC for my leg muscles after all that walking. Chicago is pretty cool. I like it.

    Cue montage music!

    That is the best way of looking at this whole journey that I've ever heard!

    Basically a horse tranq. It’s an anesthetic. Street use is ecstasy. But this is doctor administered, sub anesthetic levels. Not sure if I’m interested. My hubby is more open minded than me.

    What is Ketamine? I definitely wouldn't be ready for snow yet! We had super cold weather, but at least it was sunny(super cold for me means icy at night and in the morning) Getting walking in is great as is taking care of your family.Hope the next days start to look brighter for you
  21. Psyched that you got Hu tickets. I think you need something great to look forward to. Hope the finances ease up.

    Sloth Becomes More Sexy With Kettlebells

    Sounds like an intense workout. I think one thing that has helped me with the double cleans is really focusing on form ,so I don't have a lot of wasted movement and energy.Dan John says you need to keep your elbows tight to your side when doing cleans. I've been working on doing that, and it does make it easier (though not easy, just maybe less exhausting)

    Save yourself.....Rinna looks within.

    Things......are. But there is a light, and I’m pretty sure it’s not a train. I have spent the last few weeks not giving any f@*%s. Everything has been an effort. Doing the bare minimum here. I realized the other day that I might need to go back on my meds. The why bother attitude, tears for stupid reasons, anxiety, and paranoia have been creeping back. I finally made an appt. (wouldn’t you know there’s one the next day, for this.....) and have gone back on antidepressants as of today. It’s been 2 years, since I quit, and I guess I wasn’t doing as well as I thought. So, hopefully they’ll work sooner rather than later, and, well, just work. It’s the smallest dose, and if after 30 days no workie, I can up the dose. But it worked before, so no reason to think it won’t. My hubby thinks I should try ketamine infusion therapy. Folks say it works wonders, but how can getting stoned help long term? I dunno. I’ve managed to walk, on average, 4 days a week. Sometimes 5, and last week we made 6. We even walked in 20 weather, just to see if we could. It actually wasn’t horrible. We had our first snow, which was horrible. Not literally, I’m just not ready. So, in a nutshell, the only f@*%s I have in me to give right now are walking, and the shit I have to do, like feed my guys, and make sure their clothes don’t stink. Sorry for any typos, this subject makes me cry, and I can’t quite see what I’m typing.
