    Not the week I planned on

    I missed a workout on Friday. The first workout I’d missed since November 7. I think I had the same issue, exhaustion. You’re supposed to take the week after a meet off to rest, but I’m always so fired up from the meet that I want to keep lifting. I had to lay off two ladies at work on Wednesday. That just spins me out. Especially if they a single mothers with children, which they were in this case. Not only was my boss no help, she actually seemed to be doing everything she could to make my life difficult that day. Finally, I called her bluff on something around…

    Lock and Load

    OK, Laughlin is done, now we’re on to Napa, January 14. I need to help them compile the records, I will get after that soon. I started benching today and realized that my shoulders were a little more sore than I had originally thought. No worries, I did the first part of the bench work out, 5X50%, 4X2X60%, 3X2X70% and then instead of doing 3X6X80%, which was 185lbs, I did two sets of 3 and went to the dumbbells. I did my old shoulder capping routine that I hadn’t done in a long time and followed that with my PT shoulder routine. Good enough for government work. All the candy…

    Laughlin, NV

    It’s like being in Hell. You can’t breathe through all of the smokers and you can’t eat in that damned town. The River Palm is a huge hotel with the world’s oldest HVAC system. You can barely breathe fresh air even on the the non-smoking floors. Luckily it was cold outside so fresh air could be found if you went somewhere alone. How do you mess up a baked potato? Ask the River Palm, they did it. How do you screw up hof brau style prime rib? Ask the River Palm they did it. Their food is designed for old people (like over 70 old) who can’t taste the difference…

    AAU meet December 2, 2005

    Not bad for an old woman, two firsts and a second. Martin was gracious enough to cross me over into two classes that I hadn’t originally signed up for. He has a soft spot for me, I think it’s because I’ve always been easy going and not a pain in the butt. Did I want to deadlift? Jeez, I hadn’t been focused on deadlifting because I hadn’t entered that discipline, but I guess I could. And I did. I equaled my existing world/american record, but could not break it. I benched 192.8 which isn’t a world or american record and is about 10 pounds away from it. I’m happy with…

    Welcome

    I’ve been asked repeatedly to journal my adventures. I will do that here. I have two other blogs, but I’m so out of control on the one that I cannot link to it with good conscience. It keeps me sane. The other chronicles the passing of my dog Toby. Toby had lung cancer, she only stayed with me for 19 months but she was a Gypsy Doberman and she stole my heart. She promised to trade it back later for my wallet, but she never did. Here I will discuss my: PowerliftingBody for LifeYogaGolfDobermans, mine in particularWineMustangsHome remodelingSwimming poolsBMW’sTravelsPickup trucks and country musicAnd if I can’t resist…politics.
