    I see a built chick.... 300# is alot!


      'rin A couple things: I get the genetic thing...I had to struggle to get my bp under control last year (a gift from my dad's side of the family). This year my cholesterol numbers were up (a gift from my mom's side of the family). The struggle is real even when you try to do the right things. The other thing: you are strong as hell. Thanks for being my inspiration as I struggle through push-ups and other strength training fun.

              extra meal on late days is a "known bug" but, 1 I still need to work out. Idk why I feel like I always need a meal post work , even if it is bedtime and I've already eaten enough. I need to find ways around this.
              7/7 altho I ignored triceps lol

              Analysis of Rin-split 2.0
              maybe I did not give it enough of a fair trial bc traveling then sick, but, it didn't rly work. Not much progress. I left too much wiggle room to allow for linear progression. BUT I did learn form on a few lifts. And I think my triceps are a bit more solid. Heading into holiday stress season so I am not going to try to make a real plan. Going to commit to hitting main lifts (bench, row, Deadlift, squat) in some form once a week, and having 1 lower key/unweighted day at least a week but other then that...just going to do ramdom workouts Ive been bookmarking and the random circuits trainer set up and just keep it moving. But first, deload week. No barbells, nothing heavy, lighter dumbell workouts and conditioning circuits for a break.


                aveoturbo we did. going out tonight also. that is really our fave celebratoy type dinner at home bc it involves no effort on either of our parts (mine as cook, his as dishwasher) and is still delicious lol.

                              7am - 2 slices of toast, an avocado, 2 poached eggs, Coffee
                              1130 banana, more coffee
                              130 - apple, clementine, cheese, chorizo
                              4pm - small bowl of chili to ensure it was not poison
                              730 - mid bowl of chili w abt a serving of brown rice

                              Bonus (mild- I like heat but hubby doesn't so...) chili recipe:

                              Brown a beef shank (you want bone for flavor) and some stew meat​​​​​​​ w salt and cumin seeds while chopping up 1 onion and 3 cubanell peppers. Pull beef out of pot and put veggies in, add a few tbl butter to help brown them, and coriander seeds, oregano, cinnamon, and smoked paprika. When veg is browned pour in a few cans of any decent beer and scrape bottom of pan. Add a big can of diced tomatoes and 3-4 cloves of garlic and put beef back in pot. If liquid doesn't cover it add water. Either simmer it on the stove or... turn oven on to 350 and put pot (covered) into oven to be lazy. Once beef is tender pull meat from pot, and add beans (I used 1 can kidney, 1 can black beans) and a can of corn. Cut the beef into shreds and put it back into the pot.


                                Slept "in"till 6, played some Spyro, walked to subway and hit gym near job. Some of my over eating on late work days may be bc I am awake 4am-10pm so....
