  • Worst: The horrible stresses of uni crap that just pile on and on and on...
    Best: Still managing to hit over 2000kcal without forcing ANYTHING, despite my poor appetite.

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

      You are an animal on this planet and the rules of engagement are non negotiable.

      • Best primal moment of any given day - Selling a Paleo/Primal book or cookbook at work (and encouraging said customer with a blurb or two from my own experience . . . like kicking my diabetes meds).

        Worst primal moment of any given day - Selling a Paleo/Primal book or cookbook at work and having to ring up the pound of milk chocolate truffles the customer has elected to purchase with said book . . .

        • Best: I bought bacon!!!!!! It's quite expensive here, and so I usually have to go without, so this is seriously great.

          Worst: I'm struggling with the 'calorie in, calorie out' mentality, and I'm having to force myself to eat.

          • Best; a smug looking woman eyeing up my trolley as she's unloading all her bread, low fat cream, pasta etc, coming out with a judgemental "that's a lot of meat" remark.

            Worst; not being able/allowed to bite back with a scathing retort....

            • Best: not sleeping through the alarm so I'll actually get to the farmers market this morning.

              Worst: It's only 7:am, nothing worst yet.

              Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              • Best: wearing shorts and a tank on a warm sunny day and my 5th grader's teacher tells me 'You have the legs of a teenager!' (I am mid 40's) *blush*

                Worst: trying to find an excuse when my MIL invites me over for lunch so I can try the "wonderful new Raspberry Viniagrette I just bought' *blech*

                • Best: My "almost-pullups" are now so high my shoulder touches the bar!!! Can't wait until I can reach the bar with my sternum in a full-regulation pullup.
                  Worst: Feeling a bit sleepy. That's it.

                    Sometimes the best response is just "Yeah, isn't it?"

                      Since when does your sternum have to touch the bar for a pull-up to be legal? I have always seen the standard defined as your chin passing the bar with no chicken-necking.

                        I've always viewed it as that my chest has to touch the bar for me to have reached the milestone. Collar-bone/shoulder height doesn't quite cut it for me. It also can help move onto other pullup-bar-based activities faster, dependent on body-type.

                          I'm certainly not arguing against more complete range of motion. I like to touch my chest to the bar also. I'm just arguing against denying yourself credit because you want to do pull-ups with a greater ROM. You got your chin over the bar (with a neutral head position), you did a pullup in my book. Especially if you're a lady, as a pullup is actually quite an accomplishment due to physiological differences between the sexes.

                            I refuse to let my gender define my success!
                            But, seriously, I'll take ALL the credit (with steak and cheese) when I do a proper one. But, for now, I haven't done a real one. It doesn't disillusion me; it spurs me on.

                            Once I've done the one, I'll need to learn to do a series of them, each starting from a dead hang. Which will be fun...
