I ate a lot yesterday.
My left elbow is not in good shape. I will have to switch to front squats and light presses for a while. Cleans are out (I checked last night), snatches and jerks are definitely out, I'll have to see what deadlifts and their variants do - keeping the elbow locked out under load doesn't seem to hurt, but I'll have to double-check. I'll have to eat less since I won't be working as hard. Maybe I should get this diagnosed. This is not tendonitis. Fortunately, it's not painful until I begin putting in heavy loads, so it doesn't matter in my daily activities. I'm pretty sure the no-dropping-weights policy is the cause of the injury.
Speaking of which, apparently my BMI now marks me as "obese" instead of merely "overweight". Frankly, I think I should have about 10 more pounds on me, though I have maybe 10-20 pounds I can get rid of elsewhere. I suppose my elbow will give me an excuse to work on that, since I'm not going to be able to work on pushing up my totals until the elbow heals. I probably won't even be able to think about snatches until after I'm married.
So anyway, at church yesterday some homeless guy was asking after me by name. He had a note with my name on it asking for a CTA transit pass. That was odd. I didn't have any, nor did the church, unfortunately, so that was that. Somebody gave him some food from the food pantry. But, odd. How would anybody ask for me by name?
Excellent: just got that phone call from the intro taken care of. Awesome project of awesomeness: looking more feasible every day. This could bring me fame and fortune. Well, not really fame. And not really fortune. I've just got to say, this new Director of Stuff and Things is pretty good.
Friggin' mail nonsense. That package bounced because it didn't have the unit number on it or something. I can't pick it up because the mail service didn't leave the form thing for it in my mailbox (probably with somebody else or something?). So... I guess I'll call the post office and see what I can do?
Fish oil: x-ray vision abating. Will increase dosage. Hopefully not a transient effect.
