    Today's workout:

    1 pull-up, 2 push-ups, 3 squats -- max rounds for 10 minutes.

    I've been spending less time on here lately. I wish it was because I was doing something productive or fun, but nothing is going on. On a good note, my adding in lunch has been helping(actually doing some exercise is proof of that). I've been keeping it simple with 3 or 4 hard-boiled eggs. My food is primal as always with a bit of dark chocolate sprinkled in a couple of times a week. Sunday, however, was my wife's birthday. My oldest baked her a cake, and with minimal adult supervision. There was no way I was not going t eat a piece of her cake. Afterwords we took a long hike through the woods as a family(it was the first sunny day in a while). At the end of the walk I felt the affects of the cake. I was a little surprised since it was only one piece, although a good sized one.

    Sunday was eventful in other ways too. The kids went to a birthday party with a sports them. All was going good until the end. My daughter tripped on a soccer ball and fell flat on her face on the gym floor. I got a call from my wife saying we needed to go to the ER. The poor kid broke a tooth, had two fat lips, and a small trickle of blood in her nose. On monday she went to the dentist who said the nerve was exposed and it was outside of what he could work with, and suggested we take her to a specialist in Morgantown. Well that's like almost 3 hours away. My wife did some digging and found a guy in Wheeling that can do it(and has a better reputation for working with kids). He tried to get it done on tuesday, but said the nerve was too inflamed and it would be too hard on her(she could still feel pain through the anesthetic). He sealed it up, gave her some antibiotics, and made an appointment for 3 weeks. Only problem is the sealant came off and she had to be taken back today. I got the day off for the first one, but not for today. Oh, and on monday the little one was running a fever and had to go to the doctor with an upper respiratory infection. Been fun in our house.

    Song made up by mt oldest while I made dinner:

    Deeeaaaad cow! It's delicious!
    Deeeaaaad cow! It's nutritious!
    dead dead dead dead dead cow is called beef!

    There's a dance that goes along with it too.

    Sounds like you got hit with a ton of problems at once. That happens to us too with our boys.

    Good thing kids are so awesome or we would run away screaming.

    Yep...I think the kids were handling it better than us grown ups.

    Yesterday's workout:

    Double kettlebell clean and press, 3 x 10
    Dumbbell rows, 3 x 10
    Double KB front squats, 2 x 10
    Push-ups, 3 x 15
    Walking lunges w/KB's, 10 steps forward and 10 steps back

    First real weight workout in a while. I plan on focusing more on these. I plan on making a real heavy sandbag(100 lbs or so) and maybe a heavier kettlebell and some heavy dumbbells if I can find them cheap. I want to start focusing more on pure strength training than strength conditioning. Going to keep it to 1 sprint day or one metcon type workout a week. Now it's time to take the dog for a long walk(taking care of my regular movement at a slow pace).

    Sunday's workout:

    5 swings, 5 high-pulls, 5 snatches, 5 clean and press, 5 lunges - 4 sets each side
    dumbbell rows, 3 x 10
    goblet squats, 4 x 10
    push-ups, 30-20-10

    I was going to workout again on Tuesday, but when I got home from work I felt exhausted(that falling asleep on the couch tired). I was going to do it on Wednesday, but I had a shitty nights sleep and felt like I had been hit by a bus all day. Besides, it was my oldest's first day of soccer practice, so there wasn't time anyway. The practice was cut short though(BECAUSE IT WAS SO FUCKING COLD!)

    Today's workout:

    Double KB clean and press, 4 x 10
    Dumbbell rows, 3 x 12
    Goblet squats, 5 x 12
    Push-ups, 1 x 40, 1 x 20

    It was so fucking cold out, but I am tired of not being able lift weights so I went out anyway. Do you have any idea how cold a kettlebell gets in 32 degree weather? Well, obviously it gets 32 degrees. Like lifting weights with blocks of ice. WHERE THE FUCK IS SPRING! IT WAS SNOWING OUT WHILE I LIFTED WEIGHTS!!! If I see that fucking groundhog I'm going to beat his ass. Sunday's was just as bad. I made the mistake of wearing VFF's and froze my fucking toes off. Probably had a bit of mild frost bite. I was just in too much of a hurry to put them on. I really hate regular shoes these days.

    Preaching to the Frigid Choir, sir. Our roads were clear... very little snow. Yesterday and today? Another seven inches. (That's what she said!)

    Stupid weather. I hate this country.

    Yeah, droughts do suck. I had to deal with them enough when we lived in Florida. Not to mention, you have to deal with those sneaky hobbitses.
