    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I got the pfizer-biotech a week ago. All I had was a little soreness at the injection site (but not even to the point it affected me) My wife got the pfizer-biotech a few weeks before me, and her stomach is just starting to feel better now. She got the headaches, stomach pain/upset, mouth sores (apparently one of the more rare side effects) and more from it.

    That's a shitty situation to be in man. Sorry that someone is that hellbent on wrecking your life. Hopefully you can find a solution. And reinforce all of your entry points. I definitely agree with the concept of, make it too noisy and obvious to be worth trying. This is what stops them most of the time. If they think it's too likely they'll be caught they move on. Although it sounds like in your situation it's very directed and not random. Have you looked at bowley locks? https://www.bowleylockcompany.com/store/p11/Bowley_Lock_Grade_3.html These are designed to prevent bumping/picking/raking.

    Like Sean said, all a super expensive lock will do in a residential setting is ensure a broken window or door jamb. A true thief will break in, the lock is the least of their worries. Most homes have some of the shittiest hardware ever securing their doors. Take my house for example. When i bought it, the entry doors had the shitty 1/2 factory screws in its hinges that would have came with the being pre-hung. The metal jamb plate had the same 1/2 screws holding it on. Any full grown man could kick the door in, despite it being a metal door with a deadbolt... Quick upgrade to a better deadbolt (longer, with a hardened rod through it) replace the 1/2 inch cheapy screws with 3.5 inch lags that go through the frame for both the door and the jamb plate and now it'll take more than a single boot to open. Instead, a thief will just pry/break a window to get in... If they want it, they'll find a way.

    Daily push ups are killer. A buddy of mine sent me a challenge on the 2nd of January to do daily push ups. For the rest of January I did: 200 push ups/day 200 crunches/day 80 pull ups/day Hitting 6000 push ups in one month felt crazy and awesome. All while still doing my regular workouts as well.

    Glad you were able to figure out what was wrong. Too bad you spent so much time trying to find the issue somewhere it wasn't, but I get trying to look at everything first before dropping more money.

    my best friends dad is a professor of theology and ethics at St. Paul's University. All he does is study of religion. It's amazing to sit down and chat with him, and hear his take on religions and religious viewpoints/teachings. Absolutely wild the world of religion and religious study once you get into it.

    Christmas was fitness themed for me this year. Got a new flat bench, weight lifting belt, dip/pull up belt, wrist wraps, bar pad (great for doing glute/ham bridges), 3 jugs of pre-work out, 2.2 lbs of creatine, 2 jugs of eaa's. All stocked up again, with some needed additions to the garage gym. Even managed to hit a Christmas arm workout.

    Having the temps in the 17.6°f - 30°f range is not bad. It's not too cold, get some good snowfall in that range, and can enjoy being outside. But here it likes to drop to the -4°f to -22°f and colder range. We get days where with the windchill we hit -40°f. That shit sucks. A couple years ago we had almost 2 full weeks of -15°f at which point it started ice raining at that temp... Couldn't fucking drive as you couldn't keep the ice off the windshield.

    Exactly this. Winter needs snow.

    He needs to stay in his wheelhouse. As a bar athlete doing his calisthenics, he's impressive. That said, I quite dislike him too. But that's my personal opinion, and in no way meant to influence anyone else. As with any "fitness YouTuber/celebrity" you get good and bad. Take the good from the ones you like, but leave the bad. No one's perfect. I personally like and follow Steve Shaw - Bend the Bar Man. But also realize, he's not for everyone. Do I agree with everything he preaches? No, but I take what I like and can use.
