I wish I knew how to sew. I have to buy petite sizes and if there is something that is non petite, I always have to have my pants and shirts hemmed. Guess I should have taken sewing in high school instead of shorthand. LOL.
Hemming is super easy. You could probably find a youtube video on it.

Four days of hotel food was all it took to add four pounds. How the hell does that happen?

Granted, I know there are other variables such as hydration level and such. Even so, it is mystifying...

Could really just be hydration, especially if you have been eating food that is much saltier than you are accustomed to ... the other answer of course is you are old :grin2:

@DayOne don't you get sweaty doing workouts at work?
The pressups and situps are done in small, quick sets. For instance, 20 reps. Which take less than a couple of minutes. And spaced at least an hour or apart. Enough to get warmed up, get the blood pumping, but not enough to get sweaty.

The stair running, otoh, is a good 30 - 40 minute slog. And yes, that definitely works up a sweat! But we have showers in the office, right next to the stairs, so I can get cleaned up and back into my work clothes.

Sunday sweat.

Workout 1. This morning. Gym.
Reverse fly, bench.
1x12x26lbs (12kg)
2x15x26lbs (12kg)
3x10x35lbs (16kg

Dumbbell skull crushers
3x10x40lbs (18kg)

Lats
1x10x40lbs (18kg)
1x5x40lbs (18kg)*

*Stopped there as something pulled, in my back. An 'amber warning light', not a red one, so took a break. Then tried:

Seated rows
1x10x100lbs (45kg)
1x10x130lbs (59kg)

Amber light lit up again, so common sense decided that was it for the session.

Workout 2. Home, this afternoon, while coaching M'Lady.
Inclined Pec flys, chest presses, Lats, OAR's with 'safe' 28lb (13kg) dumbbells. (she followed along, with 8kg weights)

Pull ups, press ups, situps. (she did 'against the wall' press ups, situps and her knee exercises).

Yikes, sounds like it may be time to put him down :frown2::grin2:

Flu ran through my house a few weeks ago. No clue how my oldest son and myself avoided it, but hit my other 2 kids and W hard.

Didn't post my workout from Friday. Body was feeling pretty beat up, and another guy wanted to work in with me while I was squatting which was kinda pointless seeing how he worked up to 545lbs on squats lol. Just kept things quick and got out of there. Back to the grind tomorrow

The back pain is FINALLY gone. It only took 5 months and $$$ in chiropractic care but I'm back at the gym working out regularly.

Started back up earlier this month doing 3 full body weight training (40 min)/20 min cardio sessions + 2 full cardio (50 min) sessions a week. The workouts are not as extreme as what I was doing before but anything is better than nothing.

My goal is to drop the 20 lbs I gained after I messed up my back the time before last (Nov 2014). We'll see.
