My 6th Grade Natural Science Teacher was a retired Marine and was tough as nails. What I remember most about him, though, was the way he seemed genuinely disappointed when people failed to live up to their potential. He just couldn’t understand why people wanted to do anything in life half-ass. I wish I hadn’t taken so long to apply it in my own life.
He also had a phrase that I think is appropriate today: “Edify, not edifry!”

Awe, leaving so soon anon?
Maybe the problem is that you think that you’re entitled to judge the actions of others. Well, here’s some justification for why I’ve played “suffer the fool” with you where I don’t normally respond to anonymous hate. See, if I keep your attention long enough, maybe I’m saving someone else from bearing the brunt of your special kind of hate. Maybe someone who isn’t quite in a position to take it and let it roll off their back.
Feel free to come off anon so we can hug it out..otherwise, move along you mental midget.
You need a hug! I hope one day you can learn to love yourself.
Dear anon who called me a douchebag, thanks for the motivation. This flex is for you…and it wasn’t even brocep day!

Mini-me loved him and the Puny Princess didn’t freak out (I think she was really contemplating pulling the beard)…
First snow of the season fun…
10 feet tall gingerbread house made entirely of Hershey’s products…pic of the kids with Santa coming later.
Had a rest day on Saturday and got a ton of quality time with my girls before heading in to work.
Made some fat cry today in the garage. I’ve also been reminded of just how horrible it is to ride on my indoor trainer. It’s different with stationary bikes…they aren’t supposed to go anywhere. I cranked out 10 miles before feeling the “stir crazy” come on, then did 10 rounds of the following:
100 rope jumps
10 55# Kettlebell Swings
10 24” Box Jumps
25 10# Russian Twists
