Sometimes I publicly allude to the fact that I lift heavy weights, like here, or here, or in this blog's author bio (look down and to the left!).
This post is another one of those times!
Because a foundational principle of blogging is that one should provide a window into all moments of one's life -- the fascinating, the mundane -- here is a video that my boyfriend Gentle Rambo insisted on filming. It's of me deadlifting 150 pounds for three reps -- the final set of lifts in a series of three -- and I guess I look sort of cool.
(Fortunately he cuts it right before I turn to the camera and make a truly heinous, "I want to go home now" face, equal parts "I'm constipated" and "I just relieved myself," which is a confusing and rather paradoxical place to be, emotionally and spiritually.)
But, okay, fine, I joke or whatever, but I'll admit it -- I'm sort of proud!
