I'm following this stupid powerlifting programme because I'm a stupid powerlifter and I worry that I cannot eat enough to fuel my poor ravaged body.

At the end of the first designated movement I've shifted over 4 tonnes in total and then there's even more stupid things to do afterwards. Bloody hell it works though, the numbers are shooting up.

I realize this site isn't a rugby place however last weekends international match got me thinking about growth - the NZ rugby team, the All Blacks, are well and truly the best team in the world and have been for some time now. We experienced a rare loss to a wonderful South Africa side over the weekend and somehow, I felt really happy for the winners. They played with such passion and displayed so much emotion when the whistle blew I really just couldn't feel sour about the loss. The tackle count was ridiculous - a very free flowing, evenly fought match might have both teams making around 90-100 tackles each. In this match, South Africa made close to 250, compared to NZ's 46. Which means not only did South Africa pull off a rare win, they did so while barely having possession and being pummelled for the full 80 minutes. I wonder if I am just on board with the match being so intense and South Africa so thoroughly deserving that it's eclipsed any chance of me handling a loss poorly. I used to be sour for a week or two in the face of a loss, it would mean a lot. I think it still means as much as it ever did but I'm able to look at it from another perspective. I am finally less of a child.

Ohh I've started making vegetarian meals more often - they're pretty fun and rewarding. Making a nice tikka masala (with potatoes in place of chicken) tonight.

Anyway life and work chugging on as per usual, hope you're all fine and dandy.

Thanks for chiming in on the other thread haha. I enjoy meal prep and exercise and talking about both with similarly minded people. I just don’t think we have too too many of those people here in Hubski so I don’t usually trot it out here.

Hey no worries - my two big loves aren't on many radars here but Hubski is a very nice, calm place when Reddit gets too much so I'll always be lurking.
