So we have an overabundance of threads where people bitch about anything and everything that’s happening in life, but no place to celebrate the good stuff.
Yesterday, I went to the gym. It was deadlift day on my 5/3/1 workout, and when I go up to the power rack, there’s someone in it (a relatively rare occurrence). The guy is pretty well jacked, and is blasting out 135# deads like he’s gonna get laid if he does 100. Obviously, he’s just started warming up.
There’s only 1 rack, and not enough room to just dead somewhere on the floor. He starts adding 25’s on each side, notices me and asks if I need the rack. Wanting to be polite, I asked how many sets he had, and that I’d just wait. He comes back and says that he’ll just move around his workout order, and the rack is all mine so long as I’m not going to take 30 minutes.
He then proceeded to squat past parallel in the other rack (not even sure what to call it, it’s like an open power rack with 4 bars, but no overhead connections, but it has bars across the bottom, so no deadlifting), and it was nice to see some friendliness in the gym rather than douchebaggery.
After that, I took a shower and went grocery shopping because I wanted to make up a shit-ton of pulled pork for the next week. The “10 for $10” racks at the front of the store usually have shit in them, but yesterday they had Campbells Select Harvest soups and Healthy Choice soups. The big, microwave things that usually go for $3 a piece, marked down to $1.
Checked the dates, and they’re good until the end of september and make PERFECT meals if I have to run to class at only 200-ish calories each. Heat up one of those, grab a 1-scoop MD shake, and I’m good to go. Needless to say, I stocked up on 30 of those things, and I have between-meal snacks of almost perfect portions with no cooking or preparation.
Keep it going, what’s good in your lives?
