Guess who ate grain this weekend:  One would think that a full grown adult (ish) person who has a grain allergy causing intense rash and itchiness would stay away from the freaking pizza…..yeah, not so much.  It seems like once a month (and not on THAT cycle) I feel the intense desire for pizza.  So I eat it.  And I pay. Eat clean Judy, eat clean.

Random Cock Picture:  For the new porn bloggers who decided to follow my old lady fitness blog.  Guys and Gals, this is the only kind of cock I want to see on my dash.  Please lurk away and find someone else to creep. 

WOD today was fun, didn’t get a pic of the board, but all those white boards are fascist anyway.  Did some back squats and clean and jerks.  Kept both at 55#.  Wall balls, chest to bar pull ups and toes to bars were also on the board. 

Have the best day ever folks!

Finished Chicken coop made from a metal garden shed.  Much of the metal parts for the front corners, door frame and other bracing was made from the “floor kit” that came with the building.  I added some 2x2 and 1x3 along with a single 2x4 to complete the building outside of the intended use / build instructions.  Other than the base (and wire) there was very little additional material needed.  I filled the floor inside with about 800# of sand making a nice thick sand floor which will allow the droppings to be scooped out much like a cats sand box.  That should making cleaning the inside a breeze. 

We ate well for two days then were compelled to indulge in a Vocellis spinach garlic pizza.  It was delicious. 

@Robvibe and I were all set to spend a relaxing last full day of vacation together,  until I rode with Zoe for 2 hours,  came home and fell dead asleep.  Can you say,  “In the dog house”? I hate when I do that crap. It wasn’t on purpose but none the less….

As far as riding goes,  It was a good day, sunny but cool and I was back on Trinity as my hip/leg could not handle an afternoon on butt head Apache. And Zoe handled him beautifully.  I am so proud of the equestrian she has become. 

And finally,  It is all fun and games until someone gets a chicken stuck in their hair!

Kids are off to camp tomorrow.  A kid free week for Rob and I. Hopefully I won’t sleep through it  all *sigh*

WIW: The “How we are spending our vacation” Edition.  And other random shit.

Been away for a bit as I am finding it hard to be upbeat, positive and fitness/food focused when all I am really doing is trying to figure out how the hell to get anything accomplished on one leg and while dealing with constant pain.  I have determined I am not good at pain. 

My weight isn’t going anywhere either.  Today’s weight is up due to we are on “vacation mode”.  We close our office every year during the week of the fourth of July and hence we are off, but this year we aren’t travelling so robvibe and I are hanging around the homestead, trying to formulate our perfect margarita and we are on the right track for sure!

Rob has also moved, revamped and secured the chicken’s coop.  We lost 2 hens this week to predators while they were free ranging.  Very sad indeed, but as the predators live here in the wilds of South Buffalo Township, we decided to make some improvements to the coop. 

So today’s weight:  162.4

Happy Hump Day All!

Yesterday sadly, Big Daddy Rooster met his maker. I would have loved to keep him around, he was an excellent protector over my girls, but he had become aggressive towards me in the last month or so, usually running up behind me and trying to spur me. Monday morning though, he came at me head on. Luckily I was quick enough to kick out towards him and his feet (spurs) met my foot. I love my animals, but they better know who feeds and loves them.
