    Way to go, M.E! Now you have a conundrum, bb-show or powerlift or both, I suppose that has been done before; I reckon you'd place well in both areas, IMO.

    Hi. Remember M.E.? I realize it's been a while since i've checked in here and today seemed like a good day to do that, so here I am. I think summertime takes everyone's attention and time from places like this, and my summer has been pretty busy with lots of fishing and stuff, and just getting on with life. Up until 2 wks. ago, I have still been getting my big butt to the gym 4 days/wk, with Joel, but have veered away, slightly, from my focus of sticking solely to low carb. Here's a couple pics taken this a.m.
    .

    .

    .

    .
    My reason for the lack of gym time these past two weeks, is all because of Joel. Though we have gone, twice this week so far, we've had to take it super easy. If you have followed along in this thread at all, you know Joel was recently big into this arm wrestling challenge crap with some of his buddies. After the first time, i told him it really wasn't smart, but there was no deterring him from wanting to prove himself a "champ". That turned out real well for him. Here's a video I took at the last arm wrestling challenge on 10/24. Joel is in the blue shirt.
    .


    .
    By the way, that video was shortened a good amount off the end because i never turned off my phone, and there was a lot of F words by Joel and me freaking out.
    .
    This is what it all came down to:
    .
    Big time broken arm, a 2 hr. surgery, 10 screws and a plate, and nerve damage since surgery...can't feel his forearm, and has no wrist control, though can move his fingers a little bit.
    .

    Thanks you guys. Tomorrow morning me and Joel are flying to Florida (as long as he makes it through the metal detector at the airport with all that new hardware and staples in his arm), to stay at my sister's second home. A nice escape from all this recent stress, just for the weekend (come back monday morning). I'm looking so forward to just getting away from all this recent crap. Then i plan to get back full force in the gym. Joel is only 2 wks. out from having surgery and i have to get ****y with him not to try and lift anything heavier than what i have on the rack...and he's not loving that. He tells me "it doesn't hurt", which is BS. But at the same time, i can't let his "handicap" keep me from going hard, which it has been. So, this weekend away, and then hopefully, i'll be coming around here again more regularly.

    Oh wow...that was not a good video to see! Ouch! Glad they were able to at least get it repaired. Hopefully he will regain nerve function with time and healing. The pics of you today are looking good! Love the biceps shot.

    I'm glad to see you back ME! And terrible about Joel and his arm.
    Hope Florida was great!
    My family & I are leaving for Orlando this weekend and nothing's packed yet. Oh well...

    ps... You're looking fit and trim as ever!

    Ok, I was summoned by a friend to pick things back up here, and honestly, i would love to. I cannot believe, for as much as I used to love to sign in here, how long it's been. Life has taken over, I bought a new house with Joel, which we moved into this Summer, I became a grandmother in September, and life has just been freaking busy. After this post, i think i will start a brand new thread. I like the idea of getting all of us back together here, as it was, so here's to new beginnings with old friends, and some new ones, hopefully. I'm not sure i remember how to post pics here, but I'll try, just to show how far i've fallen lol.

    And, though i do still have my gym membership, for some reason, Joel isn't thrilled about going lately, and won't let me go alone, but, like i said, we bought a new house, and i put a convenient gym in the basement, WHICH I LOVE:

    Tomorrow, i will start a new thread. Out with the Old, right. Thank you Chad, for bringing M.E. back. If there's one thing i crave right now, that's "accountability", and I always felt that here..like it was "put up, or shut up". We all need that push sometimes.

    XOXOX Happy to be Back! <3
