wow that dog made me melt :) :)

crosses actually grow faster better and stronger by genetics, it's called "hybrid vigour" so that may have something to do with personality differences

She does tend to have that effect! :) And she's very much aware of it, too lol
Crosses do often have the best of both breeds, but sometimes it works against them. Like both of my girl's breeds being known for hip issues, well, really joint issues in general.

Mr Bear, what kind of dog do you have??

They're like having a kid and a best friend all in one, I think it's normal to miss them endlessly. I have to go through other people saying goodbye to their pets all the time, but I've never had to. It's a devastating thought.
What kind of dog did you have?

Scooby, a fox terrier. My best buddy and running partner. He got knocked over by a car when he was about 20 months old, he died about a minute after being hit. He was still alive when I reached him, died in my arms so I would have been the last thing he saw :(

That's awful = ( I'm so sorry.
I started my saturday at work with a devastated owner who's only dog was killed by a car...The driver was texting as she came around a corner, the dog's leash had snapped so he was loose. The driver actually stopped and got out, though still texting, yelled at the owner, then drove away. I don't understand what's wrong with people.

No gym so far this week :( I'm getting my ass kicked by a cold, but I'm improving quite quickly thanks to some fantastic meds, so I'm hoping either friday or saturday to get back in there.
Diet is going straight to hell, though. Clients are bringing in absurd amounts of goodies for us...thing like homemade toblerone/caramel cheesecake. How is that even fair?? haha The miror doesn't like these foods, but my stomach is extremely happy.

No gym for me yet :( I'm still sick, but thankfully it's more in my chest now than in my head. Whether my body likes it or not, I'm going tomorrow before work. A week off is more than I care to tolerate lol
Had my annual christmas outting with my friend and her husband, with my boyfriend being the new addition. Great time...had an awesome dinner, then watched Christmas Vacation while having cookies and baileys/hot chocolate. :)
Tonight I'm actually cooking (extremely rare occurance) dinner since my grandpa is coming down for the night. Veggie chili is what's on the menu for the evening :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Awesome (well, awesome as compared to recent) workout yesterday. I woke up at 4:30am (2hrs ago), rolled over and smiled because it hurt me to do so haha then went back to sleep for an hour.
I did basically what I've been doing for a while, but added in tricep extensions and I attempted assisted pull ups again. It was really, really weak, but I was doing wide grip (which I've never been good at). It's a start, anyway.
I also altered my middle bench set to 3 down, 1 up. I had to only do the middle set because it hurt too much lol I figure doing all sets in that format is a good goal because I'm not sure I'm ready to increase weight.

Last night after work I spend my time wrapping Xmas presents, but my four legged children were plotting against me. My female cat kept claiming everything as her bed, and my pup decided that she should have all of my attention. She was being very puppyish last night lol it was adorable :)

have you ever done negative only sets for pull ups? i find them good for increasing the amount of pull ups i can do! my friend couldnt do one pull til she started doing negatives and building up reps of those and progressed onto to pull ups then! :D
