Tattoo Artist should be getting back to me soon on his design idea. Contacting my piercer today, hoping to get the knocked out. Then again, will be on my stomach to get the tattoo done, so that might not be comfortable .... but would take my mind away from the needle, lol And in a "dentist type" chair to do the piercing, which the tat, might still be sore. So I guess 6 of 1, half a dozen of the other ..... just get it done Denise (ya, you should here my conversations to myself).
New Years was fun. Went to Rice House for food, and the owner "Mr B", comes out of the kitchen and gives everyone in the rest a glass of some fruit champagne concoction (quite good actually) with his hat on and blowing a horn, yelling "hoppy new year!!!! , hoppy new year!!!!", SO MUCH FUN! They close at 10-10:30, we were done there and bounced to the Bull on the Beach, the one on my side of town has my Rum, same owners, no rum
..... just some Barcardi or Captains ... not fond of either). So majorly over crowded (not my type of crowd, but I think most of the women had their teeth) and smoky as all get out. I've gotten so I can't take the smoke that well anymore. DE is smoke free and MD will be in Feb. During the summer I was doing the outdoor bars on the docks, so wasn't an issue. Anyway, MD was crawling with troopers and they were getting check points set up everywhere. So we bounced to Seacrets, I made him call first before we approached the door ..... the cover was applying to VIP holders. The only time of year this occurs. I'm not paying $80 for the "same show" of drunks, and the parking lot was 1/2 empty, so must have been pretty lean, I bet they were only hitting about 1000-1200 people. Very slow from them. So next we bounced to our planned final destination, the Fat Tuna, DJ was OK ..... um although he did play "the electric slide" and I though, "you're kidding me, right?". Champagne toast at Mid after countdown, then the bartenders jumped up on the bars and the open mouth shots commenced as everyone lined up under them and took a shot poured in their mouth with a "timer" set. Interesting since most of the crowd was already totally wasted. No I didn't take part in "the show", give me a glass or forget it
. I was fine since I had been "pacing myself". Finally off to check on kids and back to where we were staying for the evening, popped a champagne bottle, and had a few .... this was where it became not such a good idea. I woke up after 12 SOOOO freaking groggy and icky. Fell back asleep 'til 6 and packed to go home.
If you followed this far this is where it gets amusing. Found a place to eat that was actually open on the strip (strip of land which runs between the ocean and bay) and sit to eat, had some hair of the dog. And IN WALKS this woman with a full length horrid fur coat. I glanced up and my date about feel out of his chair. (now why this would bug me more than everyone being served steak around me, I have no idea). They were being seated across the rest. When she turns around looks at the table beside me and says "I would rather sit there" .... "I thought you gotta be f*ing kidding me!" My date begins to hand me ketchup bottles..... the squirty kind and can barely hold a straight face. My AR daughter starts to hid them under the table, and he continues to get up and give me another ..... then asked the waitress if they happen to have any red paint. Which she replied "no ran out after painting the town red last night", lol ..... no she wasn't on the same page. He reminded me the police station is only a few blocks away and it could be fun, I said only if while they arresting me, I get to scream at the top of my lungs that they broke my finger (see above on that one). OK, you should be proud of me, the joking was fun, but I maintained my composure and left without incident (aside from all the ketchup we horded), lol
Holiday's are over, so back on track today.
From Monday: Finger was an issue and had probs with some/most of my exercises.
3 sets of abs upper 100-30-30
3 sets of abs lower 30 each
3 set lower back ext 30 each
Individual Shoulder Press wu 12@10, 8@15x2 (up from round 1), RP 6-4-4 @20, wm 10@12 ..... was totally done, couldn't get another out ... was shooting for 30
Tri Push Downs .... this was greatly effected by my broken pinkie and was quite painful at times. Hind site being 20/20, I should have used the short straight bar...duh! wu12@60, 8@110, 8@120, RP 2@130, then the weight bar hit my finger "just right" and about collapsed me. Decided I couldn't get a hold of it correctly at that weight (again other bar would have been fine), and did wm30@60
Wide Grip Pull downs .... this was a disaster. By now my finger was good and hurt and it was almost impossible to get a grip, could not find a strap #1 in my "fitness center" or could have pulled it off better (*note to self, put straps in gym bag) wu 12@30, 8@50, 8@60, Went to RP @ 70 and hit the hand again, no good. wm 30@30
Rows (these weren't as effected, but think I could have gone slightly heavier, had I had full grip capabilities) wu 12@30, 8@50x2, No RP ... hand to sore, wm 30@25
Tanning after gym, then 30min steady cardio on tread, shower and the rest of the eve is as per above.
Today is cardio, tanning and gym (not necessarily in that order). Thought for sure there was a March comp, but can't find hide nor hair of it! Looks like I have 2 in April anyway.
