Wow! You are now getting up to me! That is 8 45lbs plates on each side: 16+! Way to go and push that weight!
(Are you secretly trying for the goal of 1000 lbs? - that was mine, and when I hit that goal - took me over decades to get there though! - I knew I could do anything! The way you are rockin it, you could probably have it in a year or so! Mmmmmm, though you are running now, and it is longer and longer distance. . . well, we shall see!).

Congrats on this PB!. =D>

I was just hoping it was you who was commenting on my thread!!! Yes I am hoping and very verbal about hitting 1000 lbs leg press :) Yeah I am starting to work on my bucket list and a sub 30 5k and a 10k and a mini triathlon are all on it... trying to mark stuff off but i know 3 probably won't happen.

First snow of the season and they have school closings..... This is also my boxer's first experience with snow and she likes it. Shoulder sore so taking it easy on the weights not one bit happy bout that but don't want to down and out for a long time. Last night I did all body weight legs and skipped shoulder work. Tomorrow is triceps and back so hoping I can at least go light on the weight.

Bah humbug and a merry christmas.... The day started out on a bad not with mom waking up me and the dogs with a phone call, I had to cook turkey and ham, no not the fake meat but the real crap, and to top it off.... some idiot neighbor of mine called animal control on me!!!!! Accusing me of leaving my dogs outside all night long with below freezing temps with no dog house for shelter. Hell no I don't have a dog house because they live IN THE HOUSE!! Oh but now I have to buy one and after pricing them out they aren't cheap! Even Craigslist they are expensive! What ever happened to love thy neighbor? Funny thing is I could turn the neighbors I think turned me if the EXACT same thing and more but I don't....

To be honest it didn't amount to much. It was white out conditions aka blizzard minus all the snow. We still have a little snow left though

Aw, sorry about the nasty neighbors' incident. Shame on them!

Happy Holidays from me though! I am looking forward to what 2013 brings to us and all our efforts!

Lucky for me i have enough money to do what animal control wants me to do. They should worry more about the people who need to be turned in. Yes i am ready to see what 2013 holds for us!

I am still around. Just trying to get past the craziness that is my life right now. Still doing 2 a day sessions, now working 2 jobs, and just trying to fall into a normal routine as much as possible and then I will start posting again. Starting over on my 10k training as Xmas eve and Xmas kinda screwed up my week....

I sure don't feel like supawoman today lol. I feel beat up, run over and running around in circles.... running a lady to and from the hospital daily for chemo and radiation is my second job and it is already taking its toll on my body being around all nasty stuff in hospitals.

Ok I am officially umemployed!!!! YIPPY!!!!!!!! Now I can focus on finding a menial job and start getting my butt back to school so that I no longer have to be a nurse aide and wipe butts. You have no idea how happy this makes me :) Granted I am running a lady to and from her appointments and getting paid some but it is mostly to help her get better. I feel like a huge boulder has been lifted off me finally.
