ets, 30 sec work/15 sec rest
-Russian twists
-reverse crunches
-oblique crunches

Plan called for standing obliques as well. I'm trying to do as little weight bearing as possible on my L foot. I skipped those. Made for a short workout but that's ok.

An almost full gallon of Simple Green weighing 5.8 lbs. stood in nicely for the medicine ball. I told Alex that we can't use any more of it or it'll get too light. Guess that means no more cleaning. If only...

Got a good workout crutching around at the National Western Stock Show. We go to the sheep dog trials every year. Of course the competition arena is clear on the other side of the building and there are several flights of stairs involved as well. I have no idea how far I went. I just know that I'm really tired from it!!

Gratitudes:
1. I ate before we left the house to keep our food expenses down.
2. I'm feeling better than I did on Friday.
3. I'm really sleepy and should be able to fall asleep easily, despite Alex[...]

Spent some time at the gym - more snow yesterday and today probably another 6" and still coming down. Roads are crap and most haven't even been plowed which makes it worse. We were going to go to the Dome (indoor track/soccer greens etc) but when I called this morning their voice mail said the roof collapsed due to heavy snow and would be closed for an unknown amount of time. Luckily they had everyone evacuated before it collapsed. So TM it is.

Drove over to Fleet Feet since I needed a new pair of Asics - to my delight they had the previous model on sale for 30% off. She brought out the old and the new, and the old is a hideous white/turquoise/lime green color scheme, and the new are a gorgeous bright pink... but I put on my money saving hat and bought the ugly shoes. They will be gone in 400 miles anyway, right?? 
I also had one of those shoe charms a co-worker had gotten me as part of a gift. Really nice gesture, but I was never going to wear it. So I returned that (for $10!) and had $7 left on a gift card, so only paid $99 for a new pair of shoes, 3 honey stinger chew packs and 5 gels. Feel good about that I suppose.

I can't even remember the last time I had activity of some kind on all 7 days of a week. It's been so long that I honestly can't say for sure that it's ever happened. It probably has, back when I was doing 6 triathlons a summer, but that was easily a decade ago.
HAHA. So I start going back through my log and come across a week in May 2016 when I had something on all 7 days, but two of those days were swim meet officiating, which doesn't really count. (No physical exertion at all doing that most of the time; I don't even know why I log it.)

She used the same set as last weekends class in FIGHT, still challenging, but I could follow along better.

I need to set a screen saver or something that repeatedly scrolls : Do not make it your problem. I give them credit for attempting to work it out in their own way, but next week my parents are going to Wisconsin to get my niece and to be ex-SIL (their 2nd car was repossessed some time ago so she has no way back to Kansas). I can't get over how vulnerable my SIL must feel. No job, no money, no education, almost no self-esteem, no parents (deceased) and just not super reliable extended family. My parents are taking Aislin to AR for a week while Jenny gets settled in KS. On the other hand, her situation is also very much the result of her decisions (having a kid in an unstable situation, not taking advantage of the opportunity for FREE college in Wisconsin when she wasn't even working). Maybe it speaks well of me that my second thought was brain-storming ways I could help her get a car or get some cash to her. My aunt is seriously thinking about trading in her Ford Escape (sun roof, hea[...]

This week on "Nick and his Future Ex-Girlfriends" we have the requisite 2 group dates and one 1 on 1 date. But first, that pesky rose ceremony that didn't happen on the last episode. Suffice it to say that a few girls we barely know went home. And we don't know them because the entire show seems to be about Cor-ringe, Tonight starts out no different, as she appears in a trench coat with a can of whipped cream to show Nick just how serious she is about "the process" UGH, that ends badly, both for my stomach and Cor-ringe's self esteem. But, she decides that since she already has a rose, why bother going to the ceremony. After all, a girl needs her beauty sleep. Or she passes out from drinking too much. You decide.
The next morning, a bunch of washed up pop stars from the early 2000’s arrive at the mansion to plug their upcoming Vegas shows. And the pop tarts go crazy. WooHoos all around, from people that were 8 years old the last time the Backstreet Boys had a hit song on the [...]
