Zoom I am not a fan of Office Depot. 

I made an online order yesterday and when I went to pick it up, the price was 3x of my order. When I tried to explain the price different it was such a hassle to get my online order price honored. 

Today, I went in to buy some markers and there was another issue. Their, Office Depot, coupon would not work so my total was $5 more than I planned. 

Whatever. I got my #markers. #coupons #couponing #whypayretail

Target 8/31/14

I left the house with $12 cash and $13 on a gift card.

I came back with $5 cash, $10 on a gift card and the items shown above. Plus a container of antacid that is not pictured.
*I removed the Old Spice from the double pack packaging it was in.

Things Mr Says
I am in the kitchen, cleaning up. Mr walks in:
Mr: How can I help?
Me: Can you vacuum?
Mr: Okay. (slight pause) I'm tired, I think I am going to lay down.
Me: Okay. I'll vacuum.
Mr: (walks to bedroom)

Zoom True Story
I read this post yesterday written by fit-kitten and I was blown away.
That is exactly how I have been feeling lately and it was a good wake up call.
Mr and I had a similar conversation where he asked “what makes you happy? Focus on that”.
Sometimes I am so hell bent on fixing the issues in my life, I don’t take time to appreciate the good things.
So now my life queue is “In pursuit of happiness”.

Hello 4am!

It’s Saturday and I am awake.

Glad to have made it another day, sad my body doesn’t know it’s the weekend.

This Is What An Athlete Looks Like | Louise Green

Food for thought.

This is a really good read.

"She writes, "Healthy and unhealthy bodies comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s unfortunate the media has created such an unrealistic image of what health looks like, with sculpted bodies and 6-pack abs. The fitness industry is so heavily influenced by the beauty culture."

While many people assume that fat automatically equals unfit there’s a growing number of highly respected researchers and agencies that say otherwise.”

Texas Voter ID Law Goes To Trial

I do not seem to understand why this is an issue. Isn’t having valid identification necessary to survive in the US?

How does one prove they are eligible to vote without identification?

How does one get a student discoint at the movies without identification?

I think I am missing something.

WOD

20 minute EMOM

  • Even: 1 Power Snatch + 1 Hang Snatch (no weight listed)
  • Odd: 12 Wall Balls (no weight listed)

The goal was 95#, 105# and 115#. 

I did 95# for minutes 0,2,4.

105# for minutes 6,8,10,12,14,16 - I failed the 4 of the hang snatches.

115# for minutes 18, 20, and 21. Failed twice.

I did the wall balls for 10 minutes. I did 6 reps at 10# to a 10’ target. After I kept failing the 105#, I skipped the Wall Balls and took the time to rest.

I kept missing the hang snatches at 115# and this annoyed me. Tried one more after the clock finished and made it. I hate finishing on failure.

Gut Check

  • Class Wall Sits while one person performs 50m sled push.

I was the third person to push the sled. The class had 28 people and one sled. Same weight for guys and girls. LONGEST WALL SIT OF MY LIFE. I cringe at the pain I will endure tomorrow.

I was not happy with the snatches from 5am so I set up the camera and did the 20 minute EMOM (1 PS + 1 HS, no wall balls) with the 6am class. 

Video shows 65#, 85#, 95#, 100# (f), 105#(f) and 105#

Halfway through Ryan told me I should work on strengthening my triceps. He said that is the reason I keep failing coming out of the hole. 

Skill

Dumbbell Tricep Extensions

  • 10 (5 each arm) @ 10#, 15#, 20#, 25#, 30#, 35#, 45#
  • 6 (3 each arm) @ 45#, 35#, 30#, 25#, 20#
  • 30 (15 each arm) @ 15#

I used my free hand to push the dumbbell off my shoulder for the 35# and 45# and worked on the negatives.
