    Side plank crunches may have involved some falling, lol.

    and daejamurrachan they can be a good measure, it really is a good full body, strength AND cardio (and some flexibility and balance/kinestetic sence) movement. I just hate their ubiquitous nature bc an unmodified burpee when tired or not quite fit enough can be a good way to get hurt. (My current best is 5 regular burpees (w no pushups pr knees) before I start stepping in/out or look for a box for my hands.)

      I fall over during side planks. I swear and try again. It must be amusing to watch.


        I don't know what you people are talking about, planks, any kind, but especially side planks are the best exercise ever!

        ​​​​​​​(except if your wrists hurt. then they start to suck.)

              Weekly Digest
              4/4 and I've come to the annoying realization that altho I can have 2-3 drinks and not feel hungover/be fine at work the next day..... I can only have 1 and not effect the next morning's workout. meh meh meh.

              52 miles
              1836 average. Failing to mealprep this week fucked me up, had a few incidents of eating half the kitchen at night /sigh

              Got my lifts in, tho (as much as I can w my current annoyed back/hip situation)

              Next week I have 2 social meals - going to actually finally celebrate home ownership at a steak house w hubby, and getting lunch w former roommate. Minigoal for the week is to do my mealprep, gdi.

                    Went out last night to really celebrate coop ownership. Was putting off till we started repairing things lol. My dad came to visit last week and we fixed kitchen sink (there was more duct tape then pipe, and why is the final drain pipe is 1.5 wtf), rescreened the kitchen window (which wanted tiny tiny spline we couldn't find anywhere so was a "fun" project instead of being easy), put up pegboards to help me organize kitchen, and did minor shit in bathroom (new drain catch thing in tub, new toilet seat). And more importantly, he helped me figure out how to organize other projects instead of thinking I somehow needed to do them all at once AND we found a little owner run hardware/paint shop and my dad got talking w the guy. So now I have a local hardware/handy guy to ask stupid questions LOL. But anyway, having actually started things I am feeling more comfortable in my home so going out for a fancy dinner felt warrented finally.
                    That said, half a bottle of wine and an amaretto w dessert was all of my drinks for the week and a minor hangover this morning. Employing awesome breakfast sammich and counting my walk to train for streak.
