"Gus, don't be this crevice in my arm."

Didn't Shred yesterday, but I did shovel some ice and snow.  I'm definitely feeling it now in my back and shoulders.  I woke up this morning, and my arms were killing me.  I was so confused, until I started moving around more and realized what hurt and where.  At least it makes me feel slightly better about not Shredding.  I didn't this morning either, but that was because I wanted to have plenty of time to get to work in the tundra, and in order to Shred in the morning I HAVE to be started by 6:15 am or I don't have enough time.  Therefore, it'll be this afternoon.

I started Level 3, and while it is "no joke" as Jillian would say, it is also my favorite of all three levels.  I liked One, but I also felt like I mastered it pretty quickly.  Two pushed me further, but it is also a lot of plank work, and it hurt my hands more than I realized.  Three is a lot less work with the weights and a lot more resistance with your own body and strength.  There's a ton of knee work too, which makes me feel I need to get a knee brace due to an old embarrassing injury that I've ignored since I was about 13, but that's a story for another day.  And that day is called Never.

Last night was Psych night, which is one of my favorite shows.  It's got that murder mystery angle, and it's pretty much the silliest thing I've ever watched.  That includes Scrubs AND Boy Meets World.  Its silliness is part of its charm, and it is also geared towards people who love obscure pop culture references and quotable phrases.  My favorite things from last night (if I'm not allowed to use lyrics from the opening scene song, Steve Perry classic "Strung Out") were Gus referring to himself as the Vault of Secrets, him telling Shawn that he couldn't help him "Period.  Suck it.", the Simon Baker reference (Psych constantly adds little bits of mockery in almost every episode about the CBS show "The Mentalist" which is a less silly rip-off), AND the entire conversation between Shawn, Gus, and the falsely accused inmate.  Shawn called Gus by his real name (no silly nicknames!) and he told him not to be the "iiiiiiih" in "wait for iiiiiiiiiit."  In order to understand any of that, you probably have to watch the show.  Therefore... sorry!

Finally, is it Feb 28th yet?  No?  Let me know when it gets here, okay?  C'mon Vegas!  I wanna see Fat Elvis and possibly something featuring Cirque du Soleil.

  1. Ok, I got sick and missed a whole week (a whole week!) and now the strength portion of Level 1 is brutal but everything else feels easy, which makes me wonder if I should go on to 2. I'm really only at day six or something, though, so I'll probably give it a couple days. I really hate the strength portion, though. All my joints keep clicking!! And I feel you on the knee brace.
