Oh, yeah, I was one of those wild child sort of teens, but got away with a lot due to being an honor student. Drunk for the first time when big brother (then 17) took me out at age 13 at end of 8th grade and I vomited all over the inside of my mother's car on the way home. She made him help me clean it out the next day since he was the 'responsible' one who had taken me out. Small town high school experience meant lots of house and "bush" parties, it seems now like that combination of teenage drinking around a large bonfire is not such a good combination... and I remember once at 16 or so after being out drinking that I was made to do a full day of strenuous farm chores on about 2 hours of sleep...that pretty much sucked.
Natchobrawler, thanks for stopping by. Yeah, watch out when your kids get older. Despite what's been going on here, I think I'm glad I don't have daughters, best of luck to you there. NROLFW is the book "New Rules of Lifting for Women" by Allen Cosgrove. Pretty good program, advocates lifting heavy for women, not really unorthodox, but quite scripted. For example, level 2 has me doing (depending on the day) squats, push/press, lunges, deadlifts, narrow grip pulldowns, cuban dumbell raises, planks, pushups, and more. Each workout takes me about 30-40 min or so, excluding warmup. Again, not bad, and I'm making progress on the amounts lifted, but kind of routine and boring.
Suse, yes, a full clean of the bathroom was one of the chores. There is a full bath upstairs that only the boys normally use (we have an ensuite, and there is a powder room downstairs), so I make them clean it anyway most of the time.
Must run, guests are coming soon. The prep wasn't too bad, so I did manage to get out for an hour walk too, which I'm glad I did. Groin area still tight, and butt feeling the squeezing.
Eats thus far:
coffee with cream, a pepperoni stick, and some nuts. Rest of the night will be the aforementioned menu.
