“Generosity has little to do with giving gifts, and everything to do with giving others the space to be who they are.” – Patti Digh

lets be friends-01
I think this image captures both the spirit of letting others be who they are, and is a nice example of generous gift-giving

This post’s title was inspired by my current status. Clever, right? Or I’m drunk. One would think that’d make this blog post epic. Indeed, it’s just going to make it short. If you want something epic, or at least pretty awesome, to read, check out this guide to perfect abs and hot sex.

… And then I was a quitter

Hmm… notes. Snatch is feeling strong. I can see how the Chain of Pain acquired it’s nomenclature. Week one killed my grip, and I even stopped for about :20  halfway through (and that was only 10 reps). Using the double kettlebells went better than I thought it would, but it was still pretty awkward. I notice the lockout on the top is a weakness of mine. Gotta pay attention to that ish.

New holiday nutrition plan: Craving the sweets? Drink some booze. That’s a solid plan, right?

Still reading and wrapping my head around CarbBackLoading. From what I understand, an ideal situation would be skipping breakfast all together, which would be a big change for me, as brekkie is my biggest meal of the day currently. That being said, the days I do intermittent fasting (typically noon Sunday to lunchtime Monday) I do tend to feel pretty great Monday morning, though I can’t say that I have noticed more mental clarity or anything. Though that could just be Monday.

Anyway, this article from Chris Kresser arrived in my inbox in a timely matter, as did Robb Wolf’s discussion with John Welbourn, who points out that intermittent fasting is really just calorie restriction, though I am not sure that holds true when done in a CBL fashion.

Like I said, still processing the CBL info… I think the bourbon is helping though.
