                    I was trying to figure out if it was a warmup jacket? But EC made no sense, lol.

                      Thanks Encourager and LOL K e l l y and Rainbow Dragon

                      I meant This but will leave that above bc funny.

                      Tonight I am going out for dinner and to see Dead South w hubby, which will involve drinking (altho not nearly as much as last time bc getting off subway at every stop to puke isn't a thing I ever want to do again). So today's workout needed to include some cardio, right?

                      AND I get mad watching heavyset gals in worn sweats get intimidated right out of the gym by super fit looking gals in booty shorts; so I decided my heavyset self should go to gym in a tank and shorts (altho, not booty shorts, idk why ppl think those are comfy in public but hey to each theirown, even if I AM professional fashion police lol), sort of as a visual signal that we all belong there.

                      Cue moment of abject terror/self disgust when it sunk in half way through my workout that this intersection of plans involved "flailing my fat jiggly arms around in front of beautiful people".

                      But. I am stubborn so, I did not allow myself to be yet another heavyset gal chased out of the gym and actually stuck to my plan and am feeling a lot better now. Even posted on insta in a fake it till you make it moment bc dear god I do not actually like that photo but really I do not EVER like my photos even when "thin" so blargh I will just consider leaving it up further "fat gal in thin friendly space" ambassador work.

                      ANYWAY

                      Power up 9
                      gainer 15s on lunges and calf raises. 40s on farmer walk w an extra set to put them away. Arnold presses.... 8@15s, 8+2 push press at 12.5s, 10@10s. 12.5s on rows. 50lb bar on deads.
                      Back and core 9 but dreaded up downs on knees
                      Bounce back lv1

                      Day 62

                        This is bullshit. No one should be intimidated because they want to improve themselves.

                          This IS bullshit but, I have watched it happen, sadly. I hate ppl, sometimes.

                              Concert was so much fun. Altho there was a minor brawl 2 songs in. Hubby and I both initially thought "well, it sort of makes sense to mosh to this" but no, it was an actual fight. And THEN next they played their song about a bar fight LOL.


                              Back and core balance flailing
                              Power up some legs

                                Mad props for just being a girl who likes to lift heavy let alone stand up to try to encourage others to find their inner beast. I love seeing people in the gym trying to change the direction of their lives (everyone should lift heavy) but intimidation happens even when unintentional. Glad you were willing to step in there and try to make a difference in someone's life.
