Hey Robert, things are awesome:

Okay, too much "How I Met Your Mother" over the holiday break from school, but that is all over! Classes begin TODAY, and its time to get back to the gym as well. Was out all last week because I had my wisdom teeth pulled, then the week before that I spent entirely at a local farm animal rescue (wrestling goats so they don't steel the pig's food does not count as training). Week before that gym was closed. OMG :shock: it has almost been a MONTH since I've been to the gym! AaaaaaAAaaaaa!!! I had better get some squatting in, stat!

Holy crap, what a difference a few weeks away from the gym makes. My pecs/arms are weaker than a newborn kitten right now. I'm sure it will come back fast, but was sort of a surprise to me today.

Also, school is kicking my ass right this minute. I'm hoping I find a nice balance soon as I haven't gotten a full nights sleep yet this week (was only 4 hours Mon night before above crappy workout). I can't function without sleep!

Other than that, I'm strangely enjoying all my classes despite the workload so far :D .

Quick and dirty session at the rock climbing gym. I was there just under an hour when two huge groups came and sort of took over the gym :roll: . Was okay, I felt great going in today so I was really cranking and I'm pretty pumped :) . Could have gone longer, but it's getting late anyway! Time to go home (I'm on the train now), my mom just made a batch of fresh cinnamon rolls that she recently modified to make vegan :D :D :D - such a huge step for her and so nice. I'm lucky to have such a great mother (and I'm pathetic enough to live at home to reap the spoils :o ).

Hi Chrystal, I wanted to let you know how entertaining I found your training log. Love your photos, too. I'm a beginner, but it seems like you are super strong! Great inspiration.
Thanks,
Emily

Hey! You should get your numbers in our strength table! We just launched one a few weeks ago in the Bodybuilding section.

Hope all is great!

Holy Crap! I didn't realize how long it has been since my last post! Just got swept away by school for a bit there . . .

Well, to update, I climb about twice a week indoors, squat & climb on Mondays (hit 195 lbs the other day on sqt), bench on Tuesdays (woot! Got 120 lbs yesterday), cardio on Wednesday, climb/shoulders Thursday, volunteer at a farm sanctuary Fridays and I keep my weekends open for fun like snowshoeing or shooting :)

I also bought a new (to me) vehicle last week, I'll post piccies in a bit here! :D
