That pain

Hip has been throbbing and aching last few days. Last night, when wrestling my daughter to sleep (it works….) she caught her foot on the inside of my right knee and pushed hard. External rotation is NOT my friend.

Felt bad for her though. Kids feel really bad when they think they hurt someone. Not her fault at all.

Felt great this morning. Whatever was inflamed finally died down. Of course a 45 minute commute to PT screwed that up.

Ahhhhh progress. 2 steps forward 1 step back.

Such a sad meal. Last of summer #tomatoes. Almost last of #angus. Oh, who am I kidding? A pound of #grassfed angus under cheddar, #avocado and fresh tomatoes is never sad.

Jealous

at the moment, I am seriously jealous of me too. Being a bit of a cynic, especially when it comes to health insurance, I’m waiting for something really screwy to pop up. Like none of my doctors are in-network, it’s really crappy at approvals, something.

Fingers crossed that there is nothing hidden that will screw us over.

What are they even asking

Used the Athleta “Reserve in Store” feature on their website to make sure the coat my wife wanted was available. Pretty cool feature as our local store didn’t have the coat and I wasn’t up for driving and not having it available. Since it was cool, and it got us up to Palo Alto for the afternoon I figured it was worth my time to click a few buttons.

After the 2nd page of “Was your experience ______ please choose been totally unsatisfied, mostly unsatisfied, somewhat unsatisfied, satisfied, ….., mostly satisfied, better than the best orgasm I have ever had satisfied”

well, being able to reserve via the web is cool, but it’s not “20 minutes of my time” cool… Survey was not completed.

Had to buy new pants today, and shirts, and it kinda sucked - but not totally

except for the part where the 32” waist pants were too big, and the 31” waist pants fit….

I wasn’t a flippin’ 31” some 29 years ago in high school when I weighed 45#’s less than I do now. 46 years old fitting in a 31” waist, and that is after 4 weeks of NOT working out due to this damn hip surgery.

CrossFit. Anybody care to tell me that it isn’t good for you?

Whether it’s muscle ups, double unders, or box jumps, we all have things we want to get better at. Put in the work, and you’ll see the progress. There’s always more work to be done.

Amen.

"I’m 36 and I am at a really good place in my life right now. And when I was your age, in college, I wasn’t. So don’t you let anyone tell you that college or your 20’s should automatically be the best part of your life, or that growing up and being an adult means everything goes downhill. That’s bullshit. I am so happy right now as a middle-aged person. That’s totally a thing. So don’t worry about growing up."

My chemistry professor today, just out of the blue. I thought it was really apropos for all college-aged individuals. (via ohmarine)

It’s true. 36 was good, 46 is still good. You start to run out of fucks to give and that’s a lovely feeling.

What the fuck? Since when is 36 “middle aged?”
