    Nicely done, caramel.

    My weight loss is super-slow going. I am altering my expectations I realize that even 1/4 or 1/2 a lb per week loss will (eventually) get me where I want to go.

    Good day, yet bad day at the gym today.

    Good: got all my reps on heavy push day, once more and I can up the weight, plus I increased my cardio from 20 to 30 minutes.

    Bad: gym has "gotten clarification" from the state, so now it's not enough to wear a mask coming and going, but you also have to wear your mask as you exercise. Lifting with a mask is alright, but cardio with a mask is cruel and inhuman! Get to breathing heavy, and every time you try to breathe in the mask plasters to your face and hinders the airflow. I realize some people have been using those "high altitude" masks to do this very phenomenon on purpose, but those people are idiots whom I had no intention of joining!

    Good day kids. Hexbar today, hip thrusters and accessory work.
    Our state has mandated masks in all public places including the gym.
    Do anyone of you have contingency gym plans if they close again due to the rises in cases? I'm trying to get things in order just in case.

    Well during lockdown I worked out 6 times a week, only gain 3lbs, but I was 7lbs over where I wanted to be, but a lot was muscle and clothes fit well. Now I feel fluffier. I am back at the dojo and lifting at my friends gym. Here's hoping for some muscle gains and fluff loss!

    I'm still not back at the gym, and may not be until December/Jan. I'm following Sydney Cummings atm. I can cardio my butt off without a gym. The strength training is a little trickier, especially since I don't have a full set up. I've got 5, 7.5 and 15lb dumbbells, a glute resistance band, and a curl bar with plates(50lb total) that I use for squats and hip thrusts/glute bridges. Better than nothing.

    Wow - I am not going back to the gym until there is widespread vaccine uptake! I cancelled my membership and want to figure out how to retrieve my belongings from my gym locker.

    Home workouts are what I will be doing for these next months/years.

    Hey kids, hope all is well. I received a notification from MFP congratulating me for 8 years. Hoorah!!!
    Squat University is my newfound friend. The techniques provided is better squat form. I was able to do pause squats without fear. I am taking this down time to focus on PT, and more variety in my programming.

    Have a great day kids.

    LEGS!!! DONE!!!
    Gotta back burner MAX:30. I’m selling my house and there were lots of showings yesterday with more today. Already got an offer. I’ll squeeze in some routines where I can, but it’s looking like weights at the gym in the mornings followed by packing and or Pokémon hunting with the pup so they can show my house.

    Congrats on 8 years, caramel!

    I am steady-eddie....lifting one day, cardio the next day, and then usually a “walk outside” day. While the weather is warm I do want tone outside as much as possible.

    I am not losing scale-weight, which sucks. I will try to cut my portions back a little bit. BOOM!
