doing my thing

Happy Sunday!! These pretty flowers on our front doorstep make me pretty happy...

So does this guy. My number one fan, best friend, my everything. He's been working real hard this week to do all his regular life/real job stuff, plus help out with the bathroom remodel- all while I've been "vacationing" ;)

I'd say it's about 70% done right now. These pictures are from Friday and Saturday. 

Gutted, new subfloor, drywall up, millions of razors found in the wall that must have fallen behind the medicine cabinet many, many times long ago.

The pretty floor went in today, tomorrow it will be grouted, and then the sink and toilet go in on Tuesday. Later in the week, the tile on the walls around the shower will go in, and then it's finishing work from there. I cannot wait.

Six weeks from today is my first meet. This morning's training went well and I lifted weights for reps I have never done before. That's going to be happening a lot in the next few weeks and I'm feeling really excited and focused. I have been sleeping pretty terribly all week (we're staying at my parents house, remember) so I figured training while feeling pretty crappy is good practice and will only make me stronger mentally. Here's a clip from one set of each of my big lifts today. Strong, solid, composed, and consistent.  

Besides that, I've got to be honest with you guys. I've been feeling really angry these days and came to a couple of realizations. The more I share about my life, the more I open myself up to judgement- I get it. The thing that really stinks, though, is when you realize that stranger-friends on the internet care more about you, your life, and your passion than your own family and "friends". I've done a lot of thinking about all the shit I've supported and pretended to "like" because I cared about the people who were sharing it, sharing themselves, and sharing their lives. And I'm done. My energy is being streamlined from here on out. And for those who do care, who send me messages and ask me questions, and tell me I inspire them or motivate them, thank you so much. I appreciate it more than you even know!!
