    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    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.

    SSA's Daily fitness iHop

    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.

    Well, this is lovely, still no snow, and now it's 6.8°f (feels like -5.8°f).

    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.

    Fuxored up my low back yesterday working out. Going to be a couple days off for me. And I definitely feel the shoulder pain. My left shoulder randomly decides to say fuck it on me and I go a couple weeks where I can't do anything heavy for bench or OHP. Getting older sucks. Injuries suck. But gotta keep at the grind.

    I don't mind handling the fish. And plenty of room on the boat for what I want and need. I much prefer the steering wheel and controls over a tiller. But that's personal preference. I've had all 5 of us plus the father in law all out together fishing with no issues. But then before that we were using a 14 ft tinny that was narrow as hell.

    My wife and 12 year old won't touch them either. Which I find hilarious, since she grew up fishing with her dad, and our 12 year old used to handle the fish up to last year... We definitely eat more fish in the summer when we're catching it and cooking it fresh.

    We have 3 boys. Ages 4, 9, 12. Boat can get really busy. Generally try to take them out one at a time if I can, so there aren't arguments. Lucky for us, my in-laws camp same place as us, so Nana can babysit... Here's the youngest, oldest, and the wife all enjoying some good fishing.

    Sorry to hear of your loss Sean. We've been lucky locally with very low numbers. Hoping it stays that way.

    Hey Sean, here's my 9 year old with one he reeled in this past summer.

    Sean, surprised you went with a tiller rather than something with a console and controls. Nice looking boat. Should give lots of years of enjoyment.
