Thank you again. I am still not back where I was a year ago but, at least people have stopped asking me if I’m “okay” lol
So that’s a start.

Where is this transformation thread? I want to have a look!

I could post too… close ups of my eyebrows which are transforming to white.


#550

@hel320 Told you Harry this was just bad decision making. You were warned!

That made me laugh! I think my eyebrows are the only thing left that hasn’t transformed! I was going to throw up a DL video, but angle of the sun is making my head sparkle and it was depressing…lol


#551

Great pictures. 12lbs is a lot to put on and look so lean. What do you weigh now? You must have been super light.


#552

Thanks! I was just being a smart ass. 117 seems to be where I’m stuck at the moment. Doesn’t want to budge. Despite eating every filthy calorie town has to offer.
I ain’t gonna lie, the dentist ordeal almost done me in. My mom was scared I was going to die. It made me very sick. There were two separate occasions where I was afraid to go to sleep, because I wasn’t sure I was going wake up. At one point I am pretty sure I was under 100lbs. I just finally stopped weighing.
Lesson learned! But damn it was a hard one!


#554

Nothing wrong with the picture. Looking better than 90% of the population.


#555

Thank you Harry, you are too kind.

Warm up

DL sumo
1x5/135
1x5/155
1x3/175
1x3/195
1x1/215. This felt way heavier than it should have
3x3/175

Form was shit on all if it. A couple of my peeps fell an injured themselves. So, I have doing double duty. A few more have called wanted little extra stuff which has led to a series of 12-14 hour days for the last week. Not going to beat myself up, but definitely need to adjust my schedule and get back on track. I am sure mowing with it 105 degrees didn’t help this situation. Ugh! Oh wait! I get to do that again today. Yay me!


#560

I had forgotten how much mowing is involved when you live in Texas!

What do you do for a living? 12- 14 hour shifts are terrible!! That mowing in the HEAT burns a ton of calories too on it own, it really does!


#561

When we actually have rain!

Well it’s hard to describe what I do, and making a living are such strong words.
I help a group of older people. I am housekeeper, yardman, mechanic, carpenter, plumber, handyman, exterminator, etc…and sometimes nurse…lol I help them do things they can’t do anymore. I have traded time for equipment, furniture and eggs, lmao! Nothing like an 80+ year old person calling you for an emergency because she has bats in garage, or a snake.
But I have ended up loving them all. Well… most of them anyway!

DB Rows
3x5/40ish each

RDLs
2x10/125

Did the 405 DL challenge again to see if I have made any progress. Last time I pulled 165 with 3 at the end. Today I could have definitely gone a little heavier :grin: But 175=1.5x BW or 78% of my 1rm I am very happy with this but wish I would have challenged myself more :slightly_frowning_face:
