This is way late on Friday for my post, but snow storm Hercules had other ideas for my morning. Stupid snow. Anyway, not a ton of updates this week.
Julie and Dan came down NYE to hang out unexpectedly (well, maybe just for me and Dan). We all played 3D Mario on Dan’s new Wii U that he brought for us to check out and then when we were played out we read all of the cards from Tara’s jar of memories she’d been keeping throughout the year. We all took turns reading some of the cards and it was fun looking back at our 2013.
We slept in pretty late on New Year’s Day and, after some breakfast, I asked Dan to come to the gym with me to show me some stuff on my routine that I was either unfamiliar with or not sure we had the right things to use at my tiny Planet Fitness (which we didn’t on some of them). I am pretty confident to start this plan on Monday. Tomorrow will also be my first visit to the obstacle gym so I’m excited (and terrified) to go there.
One highlight of the week was when Dan was showing me my new routine and he was showing me some fancy barbell curl that I forget the name of. The dude on the bench next to us sees me curling the 40 lb barbell that Dan gave me (the 20 and 30 lb were both taken at the time) and literally said “that’s impressive”. Whether or not it is, I felt pretty badass. I’ve been flying pretty high off of that since Wednesday.
Fitness this week:
Saturday – Out and about all day
Sunday – Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero.

Since it’s only appropriate with the 8-10 inches of the white stuff outside, here is the Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow (Hey Oh). Everyone enjoy their weekend!
