|05:47 pm - Small subsets of Success|
Got almost nothing done today, having put off going to the gym (but being dressed for it). So I went. Weird. Apparently some of the training stuff I have been reading lately is pretty good, because I recognized pretty dramatic (~40%) strength gains over my last workout. Or maybe I was just bolder. I maxed out one of the machines. That was unexpected. Better motivated now to get some work done.
Got into a class at GSIA that I wanted (one more still pending). Only took communicating with 5 different people, but whatever. The business school seems set up to be fairly hostile to non-b-school persons taking classes, which may continue to be a problem depending on how much I like the classes. Because I'm not really interested in taking intro-level undergraduate business classes.
The freshmen showed up on Tuesday, from which I've benefitted food-wise. It was amazing how quickly the free-food stealing skills came back to me. The first time, it felt justified -- they had scared off the Tech St Trucks, and I could have signed up to be a staff-person-to-interact-with-frosh-and-family.

It sounds like you're doing brain surgery for some reason.
You can also work out with someone who can watch your form, or you can use a mirror.
What is SCT and other theories?

Yes, I could work with someone who can watch my form, and who could act as a spotter. But I haven't yet found someone, and I appreciate my flexibility of workingout whenever. I don't yet feel confident that I know what proper form looks like, as I said, and because I have easy access to machines for which I do know proper form, and where risks are minimized (as well as resistance curves optimized), it hasn't been a priority for me. I'll get to it, particularly if I start maxing out machines that matter.
