    Prednisone will do so much weird stuff to you. It has so many possible adverse effects. It's crazy.


      OK, this is none of my business but I would implore you to reconsider working out until you clear up, especially since you are on antibiotics and glucocorticosteroids at the same time. This is not a light cold anymore. Your body is fighting hard as it is and I think at least a few days or a week of rest would do you good. Take care!


        aveoturbo so glad I only had 4 days/10mg of it honestly. I am going to do a 2 week course of prilosec now tho to get angry tummy sorted out.

        Ann-Core my normal 13-18k step counts have been 5-10k and I averaged 9 hrs of sleep a night this week so, I feel like that ballances working out at a lower intensity. Like today I want to gym but took bus there and back (normally would walk). So you are not out of line but, I am only half listning >.>

        Holiday stress split vs rest of today is on my couch
        White Rabbit bc it's a nice warmup
        Made a lite version of V Taper. Scapula pulls and only 3 sets of each. Pulls - 6,5,5. Raises 10lbs, rows 25, Shrugs 40s.

        2 sets of abs
        8 bosu sittup to stand w 8lb ball

        10 breaths plank w forearms on bosu

          Worth a try. (just in case you needed "an excuse" to rest)

            She doesn't accept excuses tho she will acknowledge some of my backwards logic. Still don't know if it's accepted tho.


              Meh. If I physically can keep going (without resorting to painkillers bc doing that then continuing is asking for injury I know), I will. But, I will go slower and sleep extra if necessary. It's genetic >.> we are stoics in my family.

              holiday stress split version almost late to work

                Holiday stress split version stealing sleep_twitch's Nia Shank idea (again)
                RDL 1x45x10, 5x95x5, 1x45x10
                Some guys were being obnoxious about "how long you got sweetheart" from moment I started so I was a petty asshole. There are not enough clip things to keep weights on/still on the bars in my gym so I took them w me bc hey I should try a bit of weight on bench maybe

                Incline Bench
                3x55x3, 2x45x5. Range of motion on last 55 set was not pretty, keeping this pattern to clean it up
                AFTER gyzos found other clips after scavenging everywhere I brought them back along w the 5lb plates I had picked up from the rack >.>

                Scapula pulls
                3x5 - I need to not be frustrated w reps here, I am heavy atm

                Abs including absvent calendar
                10 cross reach situp
                10 dead bug
                1p heel touch

                stretched and got out. Also, am walking home (unless bus is right there as I pass a stop) but did not walk to.

                  Nia Shanks Trainings Plan ​​​​​​

                  (sorry, I'm at a metal festival getting ready for Exodus mosh pit in 15mins and there was beer already so I'm not even trying to post full sentences that make sense ​​​​​​)


                    I would want to hit them with a barbell.


                      Hope you had an awesome day sleep_twitch and CODawn I was SO tempted but decided to not force a confrontation before work.

                      Also my "local celebrity" was there yesterday, leaving all the plates in creation on the leg press but at least only trying up on thing at a time. (I approached new gym mgr abt it quietly.) If she didn't annoy me I would feel very bad for her, actually....she has this dead/flat overtired/zombie aspect while working out almost always -no joy at all. (Not w clients, but when doing her own workouts) ... I want to be like "it is not punishment you know".

                      Holiday stress split version "what can I do w 5lb dumbbells on 6 hrs sleep to justify bread and rice today bc I need propping up"

                      (note- post holidays I will not allow this diet hack/cheat but w my redic schedule atm oh well)

                      Shoulders! 2 sets
                      10 lateral raises but - brought both arms up then held one, did raise w other, alternating

                        1890 cals/average. I had 1 redic day and 1 meh following and was fighting w self to neither just keep overeating bc week was shit or starve to try to "salvage" things (which sets up rebound binge ofc) so I'll take it. Might even still be slight deficit.

                            If your into oatmeal, Wal Mart has these singles cups with 10g protein and probiotics in them. I eat one everyday I work. They seemed to have balanced me out. They are also a wee bit spendy, but to me worth it. Think they are called Think Thin.


                              You are insane, in the best way possible.

                              These arrows are earned. And no laughing from me.


                                you have shamed me. i havent even finished a quarter of my exercises for my ornament and you are done?! im such a slacker!
