Thank you for the optimism. I am an Autism Specialist currently working with middle/high school.

Agree with Hog, great work. I’ve done a fair bit of work in JP and Primary Special classes, definitely a demanding but rewarding position.


#65

Well thank you both. I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to really focus on ASD and those impacted by it. I truly love my job and those I work with.

So a little change in strategy. Calisthenics going well at home, recovering from it all. Since everything feels good,figured I should add a little more vomune haha. Supersetting 5x5 on Monday and Wednesday, Friday will be 5x5 if I make it to gym, if not then backyard stuff. Will use calisthenics to backfill volume. Using 5/3/1 5’s pro progression. Will also increase calories a bit. Have leaned out significantly.
