It seems that I have to share my own photo from my own timeline. Weird. Found that work around on a Google search. Pics and posts from feeds seen to be missing on FB for a lot of people lately.

Robert Downey Jr. has a fantastic ass.

I've got a major crush on him.

I thought I was the only one who noticed how his butt looked in those cargo pants in the avengers.

Yesterday at the gym I was happily minding my own business, shifting some weights about and every time I was using a machine (I'm not allowed to use free weights other than dumbbells at the moment) this older guy would stand there watching me. First time it happened it bugged me but then it really annoyed me. Then I saw him doing the same thing to other women in the weights area. And we all got dirty looks.

He must be one of those that thinks women should stick to cardio and never ever ever lift anything heavier than a pair of shoes.



From a post on MFP. I completely agree with it

Quote:
You don't need to eat clean.
You don't need to avoid white bread or potatoes or beans or rice or _____________ (insert food here) unless you've got an intolerance/allergy/medical condition.
You don't need to eat breakfast to get your metabolism started.
You probably don't need to pay any attention to GI.
Your metabolism doesn't get kick-started and you don't rev it up.
Eating frequently is fine but it doesn't "boost your metabolism".
Don't waste your money on Raspberry Keytones and you should probably turn off Dr. Oz.
You are not toning.
You will not bulk up, ladies.
You also don't "gain muscle really easily". Yes, YOU.
Low carbing is not dangerous.
Low carbing is not metabolically superior.
You can eat food before bed.
You can eat food IN bed.
There is no specific time at which eating will cause you to gain fat.
The little pink dumbbells do not constitute "lifting weights".
That glass of blended up "juice" that you're replacing your meals with, probably isn't "cleansing" any "toxins".
"Hot Pants" don't make you lose fat, although they may make your wallet lighter.
You don't need to burn off that bowl of cereal or piece of chicken.
You don't need to worry about whether you're burning carbs or fat.
You don't need to worry about how much fat you burned during your workout, or how much muscle you gained during that set of bosu-ball dumbbell flies.
You don't "shock your body"
You don't "confuse your mucles"
Stop switching up your lifting program. How about stick to something and add weight to the bar.
Just because you saw it in a documentary doesn't mean it's a good idea or even remotely research-based.
You don't need to zig-zag or carb cycle or do the 17 day butt wash or the cabbage donkey stew diet.
2 weeks is not a plateau.
.
.
.
.
.
Start here:
1) Eat within a reasonable caloric intake for your goals.
2) Consume adequate protein and fat.
3) Consume at least enough carbs to allow you to train with intensity.

(And can you just use some common sense with food selection?)

4) Lift weights
5) Get rest.
6) Repeat
7) And quit worrying about all the other crap.

Oooo. I love Home Goods. Never know what you might find! Mis-matched would be good, I'm sure I'll never manage to find a match, anyway, and I really do love the shape/size. But now where do I put them???? I had room until this afternoon, and I put most of my parents' stuff in the cabinets. (It's been 17 years they were in the box. You'd think I could just part with the stuff, but no, I'd feel guilty getting rid of it all. Instead, I keep it and will be honor bound to clean/dust it once or twice a year, even if I don't use it!)

Awww, that was so fun to read. I know so many people who can't dance, including me. I still dance like I did in 7th grade. But I easily find the beat and didn't realize that not all people can find it.

Yeah, I was surprised! I don't expect him to become a dancer, but I'd love it if he could just stand and bounce along, lol. We were out in a different part of town after the wedding. A street fair with live music was going on. He kept clapping and asking me if he was clapping right. It was so cute, lol.

I was lucky enough to have mandatory music classes in early elementary school. All that ta-ta-tee-tee-ta was corny, but it did teach us to find rhythm and read notes. He didn't get those classes.

Maybe it'll come further south and get me. We need it, too. It's cloudy and quite sticky here, so I hope it at least rains. We got some last night, but the ground is already quite dry.

In regards to your parent's stuff. Maybe you can keep an even number (say 4) of each type and donate the rest? You'd have more space that way and still have plenty of them.

My friends and I went to a bar after dinner last night. We were sitting there, talking, when a guy taps my shoulder. When I turned he said, "Excuse me, my friends and I are having an argument. Are you wearing underwear?"

I just stared. So he repeated the questions. 3 times.

This guy was at least 30.

I have no idea what to make for dinner. Beef stew, chicken stew, or pasta. I probably shouldn't make beef stew, all we've been eating lately is beef. I need a change but damn it I want beef stew.
