I really wanted to start running again but when I'm not acclimated I'm kind of a cold weather wuss. In the middle of a nasty cold snap, Monday's projected high is -7. Supposed to be 30s by the end of next week so I'm thinking that will be a good time to start.

Crazy fun workout today. That snatch set was a killer! 6 weeks ago just getting a couple of snatches with that weight was tough. Super happy with that progress.

I'm now convinced my Christmas day sickness was sugar related. Today is my cheat day so I allowed myself a donut at break this morning. My stomach was angry for a couple of hours afterward! No more sweets, but I sure did hammer down a large amount of sushi and egg rolls for dinner tonight
