My workout felt awesome! I’ve definitely been trying to eat more though and hopefully I’m developing some strength with the chin up project.
Back to studying and eating!
Butter would prefer if I cuddled her instead of studying.
Also the spot on my jeans? Drool.
Making plans with my parents is so frustrating…
They want to meet for lunch or dinner but can’t decide on a day. They don’t want to drive far, or pay for parking, or walk anywhere.
They live forty five minutes from my apartment outside of the city.
How am I suppose to fulfill all of their requests without wasting my time and make it work with studying for finals?
Day 3: A peanut Rudolph. Absolutely adorable and currently living on our tree.
I hope it warms up in the next few days because they cancel the horse carriage ride we signed up for if its below -20°C…
It’s currently -34°C.

The gym was fucking PACKED. I thought everyone would be studying but I think everyone was procrastinating instead. I’m going to try and squeeze in another hour of study before I head to sleep! Pretty happy with my workout, my bench is coming along nicely.
My friend has a crush on this girl, who I’ve nicknamed his “Not-girlfriend” and I finally met her last night. He had texted me before we got to the bar from a phone number I didn’t recognize but I didn’t really think anything of at the time.
After we left the bar, I texted him, “Your not-girlfriend is pretty. I approve!” Yeah, it turns out I texted her!!!
BUT BUT to make it more awkward, she told him that she really liked my arms?!?!
CURLS FOR GIRLS?!
Day 2 of Advent Calendar.
Still can’t get over this…
My friend made me an advent calendar…
I am dying. I can’t. Oh my god.
Squats: 45lbs x10, 55lbs x10, 65lbs x10,
75lbs x 5, 85lbs x5, 95lbs x3, 105lbs x2
Front Squats: 45lbs x3
SLDLs: 85lbs x12, 95lbs x12, 105lbs x12, 95lbs x12
Leg Extensions: 55lbs 2x12, 70lbs x12, 85lbs x9
My knee was giving me some grief this morning so I only pushed hard to get my reps on back squats. I made sure to pay attention to what I was actually loading on the bar today and got all my reps for 110lbs. My knee is still sore though, hopefully it’s just the cold…
I fucked around with different setups for front squats. Straps, normal grip and cross grip and hey, cross grip is 100% for me! I can get underneath the bar, keep my elbows up, the bar sits on the right spot and I have no weird shoulder/wrist pain. I realize that lifting the bar is a piece of cake, but I felt much more confident and solid.
Also, there were a lot of cute girls lifting at the gym today!
Today is my last day of lecture and I am stoked about going for wings tonight. I haven’t been to a bar in FOREVER! I wonder if I’ll still get ID’d.
Yessss… just finished my last two assignments of the semester!
I’m going to celebrate by eating an apple.
My usual giant advent calendar (That was ordered in OCTOBER) still hasn’t arrived.
C’mon! I’m three days behind in eating German candy every morning :(
I had dinner with a girl that I met in one of my labs yesterday and we started talking about how sometimes its hard to not feel pressured about fitting into society’s norms.
And the conversation led to us discussing how we both have no desire to have kids and she said, “I would rather regret not having children than regret having children.”
Finally, someone gets it.
The cake I picked out.
The card my friend got me.
All the bubble gum and candy smelling LUSH products my boyfriend got me.
My parents also got me a sweater in my favorite color, I got a really nice card from my Uncle, a card from my boyfriend’s family and my step-Gramma and tons of birthday wishes.
I even started getting birthday text messages at 5:30AM because people thought I would be up and at the gym! BUT instead I spent a few extra hours in bed cuddling with my boyfriend.
A+++ would turn 25 again.
