Staring It in the Face

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale

Regardless of where you stand, the images taken from Friday’s Presidential Inauguration are a pretty telling lesson in body language and facial expressions. The Not Face seen ’round the world.

If images of the new POTUS make you screw up your face, I totally get it. May I suggest installing Make America Kittens Again. Here to help, friends.

Some stretch


F | Shoulda been a rest day. Feeling pretty spent from this week’s work. The body is feeling great, but the CNS… left on read. LOVED the slam ball TGUs! So revealing. The toughest sequences were the TGUs to the wall balls, and the crawling around on the floor to the ring rows. The running felt nice, actually.

Sa | Pulled lighter weight because, yes, I need a rest day. The last movement on part A was… Awkward. What foot transitions? Ha.

This week’s JRE has convinced me to give a restricted eating window a try. Per Joe’s convo with Dr, Rhonda, limiting your eating window to 10-12 hours, 5 days a week can increase muscle mass. Curious, I want to test that. I’ve installed and set up the Zero fasting app… Stay tuned for updates, if you’re into that kinda thing.

Joe & Rhonda cover a lot of great shit in that podcast. The conversation went together like kitties and tots (or maple and bacon, if you prefer) with the article Ali shared on the blog last week about cultivating discipline over motivation.

Rogan brings up the idea of allowing yourself to “fuck-off” on the little shit and how that merely builds a foundation for not getting shit done when it counts; “the way a person does one thing is the way they do everything” kind of thing. (Like when you need to be designing casework details, but instead you’re writing a blog post.) Rhonda continues with how this can operate in a similar way, but with lies.

This got me circling back to the new POTUS and his choice of words and actions. It will be, um, interesting to see he goes from here.
