This Week in Space: January 4-10

This year, I thought I’d add a new feature to the blog, inspired by the Year in Space desk calendar that Chad got for me from The Planetary Society. I’ll be posting it once a week — hence the name, This Week in Space. And since the Cline Observatory at … Continue reading

Heavy Weights, Strong(er) Bones

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post about weightlifting. Hell, for that matter, it’s been a while since I’ve done a post PERIOD. New Year’s is almost here, though, so that means I’ll be making my annual “Blog more often” resolution, which should last anywhere from three months … Continue reading

The Benefits of Foam Rolling

Note to self. Arm day is a 2.5 hour workout. The gym closes at 9 pm. So maybe don’t get there at 6:30 pm on arm day? Unless you want to have to scramble to finish before they lock the doors. Which is exactly what Chad and I did on … Continue reading

If You’re Gonna Lift, Ya Gotta Eat

I had planned to talk about foam rolling in this post, but midway through the superset in yesterday’s leg workout I was reminded of something equally important.

Today was arm day for weightlifting, and arm day is LONG. We actually do arms, back, chest, and shoulders on arm day. Admittedly, that’s a lot for one day. It takes us about 2.5 hours to complete the workout. But now that we’re doing kickboxing on Mondays and Thursdays, we … Continue reading

Leg Day 1 Workout, Aug 21, 2015

FitNotes Workout – Friday 21st August 2015 Normally Chad & I use pen & paper to keep track of things during our weightlifting workouts. Our printer’s been acting up lately, though, so I decided to see if there were any decent tracking apps for my phone. Turns out there’s a … Continue reading

Foster Kitten Update: Kova, Kaya, Picasso, and Monet

Monet

Three seems to be the magic number for Chad and me this kitten season. We started out with our three little cosmonauts, Kova, Kaya, and Garin. Not surprisingly, fluffy Miss Kova got adopted first. Not to be outdone, Kaya got a fantastic application the day after we delivered Kova to … Continue reading
