La Lingua

“I can live for two months on a good compliment.” -Mark Twain

Romaleos, please

Having recently finished The Five Love Languages via Audible (feels a little like cheating, and I still prefer to feel the pages between my fingers, so full disclosure), I found this conversation about the book to be a nice digestif. The book made a lot sense to me, despite the extraneous church and marriage noise. I found myself reflecting upon close relationships, past and present, seeing if I could extrapolate which of the languages friends, family, and exes use(d) to express their love. I also wonder if there’s a correlation between “touch”ers and pet lovers; the whole tactile connection and all.

It turns out unsolicited dick pics – not a language of love. No wonder that didn’t work out.

Took an extra rest day this week. Fighting something… Hmmm. Was ready to get back at it Friday. The squats felt good. I focused on breathing – sip, sip – and driving the elbows forward on the up. Wondering where my 25’s at for the death marches; guess I need to get after it with the 30’s  😉

Saturday was a detour. High heels all week at work + sleep tweaks + death marches (?) = a fired up mid-back that gets it’s revenge during muscle snatches. Scratched the barbell workout and hopped on the bike.

With the back feeling much better, did some movements on Sunday. Spent some extra time on the foam roller. Thankful the back seems to have recovered as quickly as it did. Stepped on the scale just to check-in. A buck fiddy-two.
