    Heh... My husband was banned from Starbucks when he patted another barista on the head, yet other baristas could hug her without punishment....






    I thought the crown was something Sledge gave you to signify your being Queen of the Bedroom

    I am that.

    There's a custom in Australia, UK, and some other places where each person gets a Christmas Cracker. It's a tube of sorts gift wrapped like a big piece of candy. One person takes one end and another the opposite end. Then you each pull, like a wishbone. It pops and inside is a little toy, a joke and a paper crown. The person with the biggest side wins. We all wore our crowns while we ate Christmas Pavlova.

    And Christmas Pavlova is a dessert made with whipped cream and egg white meringue cookies and strawberries. Sometimes they're made with kiwi fruit. They were originally made for Anna Pavolva the ballerina when she was touring Australia.

    I still haven't gotten to try Christmas Pudding.

    Niiice!! That sounds like a lot more fun than going to the parent's house, mom yelling in the kitchen then disappearing and not eating dinner with us, then appearing for presents, then disappearing again.

    Too bad about Christmas Pudding You should demand it, as Queen of the Bedroom/House

    Maybe on cheat day....which won't be until next week. Then again I think I'd rather have ice cream.

    As Queen of the Bedroom, I already warned him that when he gets home next week to expect to spend the first 24 hours in there.

    Cool! the more the merrier!

    I just got in from a leg workout. Went really well except for smashing a 110kg (242lb) barbell on my pinkie. I was racking it after SLDLs. There's a bruise under the nail and it's sore but I think I'll live. I don't type in the correct way so I never realized I actually use my pinkie to type until now.

    I took video but I have to edit and put it all together. I thnk i might post that instead of a boring log with only numbers.

    Side note...there was a herd of young boys (about 18yrs old) in the gym at the same time as me today. About 6 of them. After I did my leg press two of them tried the leg press opposite the one I was using. I had 7 plates on each side. They couldn't do 4 on each side. One kid got stuck when it bottomed out and he hadn't set the safety bars. After that they scurried back to the others with the machines. I was in the free weight area almost the entire time and they we're in the machines area. They'd do some machines then play on the cardio equipment, back to the machines, repeat. It was only after I packed up and headed out the door that they all made a beeline to the free weights and starts slinging around the 10kg DBs.

    Opinions please....

    I can't seem to straighten my legs for SLDLs. Hamstrings are too tight and I bend my knees too much. If I try to straighten them more it hurts behind my knees. In fact, this morning when I got up the back of my knees was really achy and sore and not in a good DOMs way. Do I need to stretch more? I used to be able to bend over, legs straight and put my hands flat on the floor. I can't do that anymore.

    These are supposed to be SLDLs but after reviewing my video...yeah...not really.

    Lighten the load and, keeping your legs straight (but not locked), go as far forward as you can. Each rep (or set) try to go a little lower. It helps me to think of sticking my butt out and relaxing my hamstrings so they stretch more, but not sacrificing form, while doing these. When I first started training with my trainer last year, I could only go just below my knees. By the time show rolled around 5 months later I could pretty much go to my feet. It's a matter of regaining flexibility. Also, roll on a foam roller. It's painful, but it really does help.

    I wasn't sure about the load being the problem since I can't really touch my toes without any weight. I'll try it.
