    Anyone who takes Jillian Michaels' advice on anything deserves what they end up with... unfortunately, sheeple like to do what famous people say, no matter how idiotic.

    Yes, he is funny as hell. I've watched 5-6 of his videos and the dude tries hard. The bench one was killing me. "Why did I start with so heavy a weight when no one can see it anyway?!" lol. And when he does the pull up and says, "You make great guacamole!" I about choked on my coffee.

    There's no doubt about that. Most people, many of my family members included, think "They're on TV so they must know what they are doing." No matter how much a tell them that the are full of shit, no one listens.

    And Canio...I believe I mentioned not watching those videos while drinking coffee. Again, no one listens!

    Today's workout:

    120 lb sandbag cleans, 4 x 8
    barbell overhead press, 3 x 15
    parallel pull-ups, 3 x 10
    Push-ups, 3 x 10
    120 lb sandbag bear-hug squats, 4 x 10

    Seems like a short workout(and I guess it was), but it took a lot out of me. I did a bunch of yard work yesterday and may have been a little fatigued from that still. Either way I still felt good doing it. It's is a rainy day again, so I had to do a modified workout in the garage, so no kettlebell stuff or different pulling stuff with the rings. I wonder what the winter workouts will be like this year. It's already getting to cold to wear the VFFs in the morning when I walk the dog. I was looking around for a minimalist winter shoe and have have a question. Minimalist shoes use less material than normal shoes(being minimalist and all) and so should cost less to manufacture, so why do they cost so much fucking more money?

    I'd like to add this question: if women's "plus" size clothing costs more than regular size clothing because they use more material for it, WHY isn't women's petite clothing cheaper than regular because they use less material?

    There is absolutely no advantage to being fun sized.

    Ha! "Fun sized" is a great expression!

    Today's workout:
    (sandbag=120lbs...i'm too lazy to change it out and make it lighter)

    Warm-up - sandbag dead-lift 1 x 20

    Sandbag cleans, 4 x 8
    barbell overhead press, 3 x 15 - 2 x 10
    parallel pull-ups, 3 x 10
    sandbag squats, 4 x 10

    Again another short one, but it did the job pretty well. It still kind of amazes me that a 120 lb sandbag feels so much heavier than a 120 lb barbell. Throwing that thing around will wear you out. Not to mention I was tired today from a sleepless night. Around midnight my 5 year old daughter came in and said "daddy I threw up a little bit in my bed." I learned that she has no clue what "a little bit" means. The throwing up continued until morning, so only got to sleep in between bouts. She seems to be doing much better today.

    Right now my wife and oldest are at a classmates birthday party. According to my wife, the birthday by appears to have a crush on my daughter. I don't know how I feel about this. In my eyes she is just a baby. Besides, no boy will ever be good enough my my little girl. I know that is cliche, but fuck it. I'll be explaining to the boys that any part of them that touches her I get to keep, so be careful.

    In other news, I will no longer be unemployed. Well, as of November 1st that is. I got the call yesterday. Not the highest paying to start, but not the worst either. It's with the state, so benefits should be decent.
