    Beepejaye you seem to really like the rain

    I went to a movie with my kids and drank an icee- it was a thousand calories.
    Anyone else eat/drink something and then get shocked by how calorie dense it is??
    Oh I love love love rain! My perfect day is one with heavy dark grey clouds, and continuous rain! Yumm!!!

    I went to Sprouts and bought the Orzo Sun Dried Tomato Salad (even though the nutrition label was already there), and was shocked that that small serving had 500 calories!!!

    Damn I really do feel teeny when you lot talk about the actual weights of things lol
    I'm almost deadlifting my body weight... but that's only 40kg (88lb), and last deadlift in Stage 4 was 39kg.

    I'll go hide in my teeny tiny corner :tongue: :laugh:

    Thank goodness I don't care for ICEEs :noway:

    Bepee, what the heck is on that salad? Candy? :laugh:

    We're going out to eat tonight and I want a slice of my peach pie TODAY... Hmmm... We'll see how this goes. I've already gone over two days this week.

    I missed all the front squat talk? I don't do any back squats because I don't have a rack. I have to clean the bar to do front squats. Progress in weights is slower but I like it!

    dnamouse - I feel like a weakling when I read all the PR's on here....I'm pretty tall and I cannot match the numbers on here in any measurable way. Oh well....that saying: "A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms."

    BOOM!

    ali, no offense to anyone but I agree with your BF. American food is pretty bland to me. I like lots and lots of spices.

    dou, that's how I felt about my BF too, that's why it was so surprising.

    Regarding front squats, my wrists hurt too. What I do is to prepare before hand by using one hand to bend back the other hand kinda like the position they're going to be in for the squat and hold for a few seconds. I'll also hold my hand against a wall in that position as well. Also, as someone said, during the actual squat, keep your elbows high so that the bar is braced against your shoulders and neck. I kinda "muscle up" my neck too. Saw that on a youtube video. I find that really helps. Mind you I've only ever front squatted 70 lbs for 10 reps so maybe if the weight were heavier I'd be complaining too.

    pmag, that has totally happened to me before. ALWAYS when I get something from some fast food joint. If you make the same thing at home it's usually like way less calories than when you buy it at some restaurant. Makes you wonder wth they put in their food. Must be candy like runz said! :laugh:

    jo, my DLs are way ahead of my squats. I deadlifted 165 lbs for 5 reps a few months ago (I was 133 lbs), but at that time I was squatting 130 lbs. Since then I haven't done any BB deadlifts or heavy squats (not called for in the first phases of Supercharged as you know). I really wanted to do ATG so I reduced the weight way down. I can't wait to get to the low reps phases so I can test to see if I can do ATG with heavier weights.

    Wow, 165 is epic! I think my issue is the height of the bar when its on the ground..... it needs to be a few inches higher, but when I've tried resting it on things it always rolls off. The lowest height on the squat rack is too high..... I guess I'll have to keep trying.

    I also couldn't wait for the low rep phases..... until I realised the low rep max lifts are followed by 2 x 15 reps of 4 killer exercises, hahahaha. Bloody hate high reps!

    I'm seeing some serious lifting here ladies. These personal bests are awesome. i loved hitting 135 for the first time. I took a picture. Putting the big girl plates, the 45s on for the first time was a serious rush.

    I am TIRED. YEsterday I had a kick-*kitten* seminar on educational technology. Love a great conference. I leave so inspired and revved up for the following year. I even got suckered into presenting for a session, and received good reviews. I guess I can teach adults too lol. It was tiring though because I did four hours worth of driving, six hours of seminars, and Zumba last night. Today, I bowled three games with the family then went to do my lifting and even did my intervals since I had ten extra minutes. Tomorrow rest day...sort of. We're going to six flags after school :)

    LOL I know, I know :wink: :laugh:

    At least my weights are an awful lot higher than those little pink dumb bells I started with :glasses: :bigsmile: :laugh:

    Add another one to the tired list.
    I literally just posted off a large wholesale order, and come home to TWO more consignment orders, both fairly urgent. It's cold, windy (but the sun is shining - go figure), the kids are going mental and I have to clean my entire house for the girl's birthday dinner tomorrow night (and sleepover - 3-4 11yo girls oh good Lord someone save me from myself).

    Not complaining (money is good! lol) just going through the 'oh crap!' overwhelmed stage :wink:

    I would just like to sit somewhere with my crochet and some TED videos and do nothing for the rest of the afternoon but embrace my inner geek :glasses:

    Welp, I'm not going to get a 3/3 this week. Having family visiting from out of town has made it so hard to focus. They're leaving this morning and I will continue on the best I can.

    Pmag, I could get a squat rack but I have no space for it. :frown:

    So much going on here! I love seeing all the PRs.

    Lifted yesterday. It was a good workout. Got my squats back up to body weight (145lbs X 3X5) and my American Deadlifts up to body weight (3X8). On track with my diet so far. Hopefully I can keep it that way for the weekend.

    Here we are before the diner en blanc event!! The dress is too big for me, but that's what I get for ordering online and having it rush delivered (it arrived at 4 pm the day before the event).

    It rained at the event, anyway....so, I had to wear a white fleece all night, and a clear rain poncho!

    I still had SUPER DUPER FUN and really hope this event comes back! Maybe we'll follow it around Canada....I have the dress/shoes/picnic tote/table/chairs now to do JUST THAT!!

    BOOM!

    Beeps, that looks awesome!

    Today I have lunch with my brother, and dinner with friends. Food, people, bring on the food!

    Okay, so chicken, salads and homemade pizzas :laugh:

    But right now I'm off to make that gluten free mud cake. The girl child has requested no icing :noway: so it'll be lightly sprinkled with icing sugar and covered in the fruit of her choice and served with ice cream :bigsmile:
