Don't need it, just like it. Nothing like a delicious cup of black coffee to start a day.

12-13-12 1hr 15 min
DB chest press 146# x8x8x8 > X
Dips +27.5# x10x10x10 > 30#
Chinups + 37.5# x8x8x8 > 40#
Triceps kickbacks 35.5# x10x10x10x10 > 38#
Bicep curls 48# x7x7x7 > Holding at 48# 3x8
Lunges 105.5# x10x10x10

I am not happy continuously dropping my bicep curl weight as my chinup weight goes ever higher. So I am sticking at 2x48# at 3x8 (or however many reps I can eek with good form) until they see fit to grow and I can add reps. I try and keep solid form while curling, no wiggling or anything, get the weight nice and deep into the ROM, and it's hard as hell after you chin the equivalent of 185+ lbs for 3 sets of 8.

Cold, snowy, icy, no proper running shoes for this sort of thing. Wrapped my feet in plastic bags and off I went. Didn't time it.

Ran 5 miles. Had to use a different route, so unsure, there was a lot of ice. Also did:
Hanging abs +2.5# x12x12x12 > +5#
Obliques 65.5# x10x10x10 > 68#
Calves 136# x12x12x12 > 141#

12-15-12 1hr 15 min
DB deadlifts 146# x8x8x8x8 > X
1 arm DB rows 108# x8x8x8x8 > 110.5#
Weighted pullups +25# x8x8x8 > 27.5
DB seated shoulder press 111# x8x8x8 > 116#
DB shoulder side raises 45.5# x8x8x8 > 48#
DB shrugs 136# x10x10x10 > 146#

I've started rotating between pea/rice protein and soy protein. Trying to keep things fresh.

Really could use some extra weight for my deadlifts/chest press/squats, and a bar. Soon, hopefully.

Totally jealous of your Summer weather. I live in Idyllwild CA, at 5,250 feet, on the West edge of the Palm Desert. So when it snows, it doesn't stay, our night time low is only about 30 or so, daytime, 40 or 50 F. I do want to move back to San Diego though for the constant Summer. Gotta get mom settled first.

Resting today, only slept 8 hours. It's been bitter cold here and mom and I heat with wood so I woke up early to make sure when she got up the house wasn't too cold. She refuses to buy a little oil filled heater for these sub 30 degree nights. But she is quite a bit more frail than I and I do not want her health to suffer.

Gotta chop some more wood today. We're getting into Idyllwild's dead of winter and when we get back from San Diego on the 28th it'll be bone chilling through January.
