I dunno, I'm pretty sure the 290 my scale is shooting back at me right now isn't healthy.

But awesome job Tamara.

Yes, yes, bean pole. And then they had to shut up because I pulled 2x5x235lbs and flipped the 445 lb tire . Haha, thanks.

Ooooo, I AM the female Terminator. True story, haha. Thanks. I sense a really good deadlift set tomorrow, and I was correct about my OHS today, so...

Thanks, Shannon. I'm never sure whether my Facebook page is helpful in any way, but at least I get to swear there. Keep up the good work!

Thanks, guys!

JR, if Rip thinks anyone over 5'7 should weigh 200 lbs, you're totally good at your body weight, haha. Side note, the hottest guy I know - other than my husband - weighs 300. Just sayin'. You know I don't like skinny guys.
