Weekly Roundup - December 3, 2016
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
Unfortunately that didn't mean productivity shot up since I was still trying to recover. 48 hours of keeping nothing down meant I was pretty dehydrated and lethargic for a couple days. Thankfully though everything was back to normal by Wednesday, just in time to enjoy friends, family, football and of course food.
I'm not normally a Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopper, but this year was different. As many of you know I'm now a SAHD while my wife works and I've had my eye on garage gym package. Nothing fancy, just a squat rack with a pull-up bar, a barbell and some weight plates. I ended up splurging and buying it. Surprisingly enough the way they had their deals set up I was able to get everything, plus some extra 5 lb weight plates, by purchasing them all individually as opposed to getting the package. I haven't been able to use it yet since it came in Thursday of this week, but starting next week it's game on.
I need to get some more weight plates/bumpers since there's only 170 lbs total plus the 45 lb bar, but those will be added on via Craigslist purchases.
My wife and I will be out of town this weekend although honestly I wish we were just staying home because of the weather. My wife is running the San Antonio 1/2 marathon this Sunday, so if any readers/fellow bloggers are in San Antonio shoot me an email or DM me on Twitter and we can try to meet up.
