Post-Texas Tuesday

“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.” – Kim McMillen

Whoa. That’s a heavy quote for a Tuesday. Let’s blame Texas.

I spent this past weekend in the fourth largest city in ‘Merica, Houston. I am sure it’s a fine place, and that four days isn’t enough time to draw accurate conclusions about an entire city, but that skyline looks like it’s giving me the bird. And we’ll just leave it at that.

Things felt about how you would expect after four days away from the gymnasium, preempted by a week where you felt like you might be falling apart. The weights felt heavy. The pants felt tight. And the double-unders, which usually are not a problem, didn’t come easily. The griddle wasn’t hot. Hoping tomorrow is better.

As requested, some video of my BS. (That’s Back Squat, friends.)


At least Joe was there for some support. Beards help, too.

Hoping to keep my sleep looking like last nights.
