“I want to start a fire”

Not really. Unless we’re talking a campfire. That sounds nice… Listen to Episode #56 for some context

Sometimes you just need to laugh. Mortified Nation is the answer. Recently took a listen to the podcast version, also hilarious. I particularly enjoyed the 3-part series on Forbidden Crushes. The “Vice” Principal, indeed… Did you keep a diary as a kid? Do you ever reread them? It’s funny to look back with a wider lens, to recall when the little things were the big things and how much all that has changed. Or not. The drive to just make out all the time, still strong in this one.

Saturday | The body is feeling good and so are the movements! The volume on the C+ J’s was quite a thing, despite the light load. More weight on the barbell next time on the Pendlay rows. The Meow Crew got to chatting after class about stretching and how some people hate it. We decided th0se people are crazy. 

“If the best in the world are stretching their asses off to get stronger, why aren’t you?” -Coach Sommers

Wore my test pants out with the amigas in the evening; the white ones without any extra. A little more room around the middle than before, whilst maintaining the snugness in the leg and booty regions. Measurable data.

Monday | Weighed in before class because I keep thinking I am going to do a measured carb-cycling run. Then I start logging my food and want to poke my eyes out, so… Either way, I was a hundret-fiddy-nine el bees. 

The workout felt nice. No notes required. The auxiliary work. Okay, am I the only one here who has been spelling/saying that word incorrectly for… hmm… ever?! Right up there with ‘for all intents and purposes’. And ‘Worcestershire sauce. Anyway, on the, say it with me now, awg-ZIL-yuh-ree portion, I performed the pistols from the box, working on not needing to hold my foot up with my manos.
