Certain days I'm hardly hungry at all, normal hungry level, and then there's that week, or maybe just 2 or 3 days where I don't care what it is, I'm eating it. Last couple months I end...

    Lifting heavy and "bulk"

    I was avoiding lifting heavy without realizing it. I just recently tried to do my 1 rep max. It wasn't in the best of conditions, a little tired bc it was at night. However, according to the calculator I should be lifting at least 100# on a regular basis. Or even as much as my DH. Doing...

    All of them are for upper body except 1 (hip thrusts). I would have liked to see more of a balance, I guess. What do you think?

    Just saw The Hobit in 3-D

    lol! My daughter fell asleep for part of it too! We kept asking her, "How do you fall asleep? It's 3D!" She's much better about it now, but when she was really little she'd fall asleep as soon as the popcorn ran out. So funny.

    Differences in measurements right/left side of your body

    Has anyone also noticed this? I have noticed before, but never this drastic. Today there's a whole inch difference on my quads. :o I did not behave myself over the holidays. :O But I did avoid making sweets at home. So the damage wasn't as bad as in the past.

    Structured Procrastination

    It's always worst when I have too much time to do it. All the time in the world to clean the house? I'm in maintenance mode, and don't care about/can't even see much of the clutter or real cleaning to be done. People are coming over or other deadline and I'm all adrenaline, and much...
