Long time no see Lobster and Mary. Glad to see you both still hard a work. You are both very inspirational to me and even though I haven't checked in here to VB forums in a while (partially due to the trauma of losing 2 of our dogs) you guys still continue to inspire me. I always ask myself during my workouts "what would lobster and marystella do?" Thanks guys for continuing to be my motivators.

And MaryStella and Lobster-I wish I was as tall as either of you! I am 135 lbs. and only 5'4''. Oh well..... I wish I could stop obsessing with numbers.

I'm not sure! I just feel like I'm in a funk lately. Need to get my head on straight and quit with the negativity.

Remember to be kind to yourself. You are doing positive things for yourself. I get into funks as well.

are you tired? could be overtraining and not recovering enough? Sometimes you need a mental break too. Or maybe just do something fun and different and shake it up a bit. Hope your feeling better soon!

10 thrusters

OHP:
2x5x45
1x3x45
1x3x55
1x3x65
1x5x65
3x10x55 (had to cheat and push press a couple of these)
2x10x45

Negative Chins:
3 sets of 5

Farmer Walks:
2 sets with 50 lb db's

I'm trying to cut out diet soda. Lately I've been drinking at least 1 a day since I have an endless supply at work. I don't mind having the occasional can, but I don't like the idea of having aspartame every single day.
