More or Less

I need less

I’ve been wanting all the things lately. On occasion I’ve found myself in “consume” mode as a means of distraction. But in this instance, Tiger Paw really needs some accouterments. Jorden shared this great article, How to Program Your Mind to Stop Buying Crap You Don’t Need. Another approach is small (footprint) living. Downsizing your square footage really frees you up in a lot of ways, reducing decision fatigue and expediting the process of want v. need differentiation. When you only have so much physical space, the silly shit gets relocated to the Goodwill pile pretty quickly. And remember you can only wear one pair of shoes at a time.

Quality > Quantity

Little box > Big box

And if that doesn’t work you can always try heroin.

clapping thighs
Yep. It’s all muscle no doubt. Hold your applause.

Those pause squats are rough, but I’m improving! I wasn’t sure about being able to complete all 5 reps on that last set at 140#, but I did it. I am wondering how heavy I should be shooting for on the BB RDLs; Is it just a matter of going as heavy as you can? Position – Movement – Speed (in this case s-l-o-w) – Load? Maybe that’s a silly question.

I had a lot of  fun with Tuesday’s EMOM!

And bless the 3 chickens that gave their life for my lunches this week (Nom Nom Paleo’s Madras Chicken Salad). Your sacrifice to my “build a booty” campaign is much appreciated. Creature foods are delicious. And applause to my Whole Foods for selling the pastured birds.
