I've been on a bit of a spending spree on random stuff.

I bought a pair of barefoot shoes.

I spent about £100+ on books from Amazon, from physiology, biology, and general diet and fasting books.

I also bought some premium olive oil from Greece, which costs a pretty penny per bottle. I bought three bottles.

I also bought a set of kettlebells. The heaviest ones are 28kg and 32kg. I want to master the Turkish get up, so want to progress from the lighter kettlebell up to the heaviest eventually.

I have spent a fair amount since Xmas, so need to calm down a bit now.

I'm the same after Xmas. There's something about buying gifts for people and then all the sales before and after that get you into the habit of spending and so you just keep spending in Jan and before you know it, you've spent a small fortune.

I've been on spending spree too this month and need to calm down.

Bought some Adidas powerlift 4's for my squat days.

Bought a new Levi's Sherpa Trucker jacket that was on sale.

Bought a ton of other clothes, jeans, T-shirts, henley tops etc.

Bought some new weight plates as I don't have enough and looking to hit a PB soonish on deadlift.

Nice I've been looking to get myself a Casio G-Shock watch. Got my eye on the Casio G Shock GA-2100 -A1 but can't find anyone that stocks it at the moment.

You naw fancy a running watch?

Got one for xmas and I love it. no longer have to take my phone, strapped to my arm. Watch stores music through spotify and has GPS and give some great data.

I just use my phone to be honest for GPS tracking while it's not as accurate as say a Garmin which I have owned previously, it does the job. Though in the winter when I wear a long sleeved top my arm strap always slips, which is kind of fucking annoying as I readjust it every few minutes.

Might stump up the cash for another Garmin at some point but not just yet, running for me at the moment is just something I do for a bit of cardio I don't have any targets like with my lifting. Maybe after my bulk and I start cutting again and running more I'll get some running goals again and then look into getting one.

That's what was really annoying me, man. Also, because i always sprint the thing would slip even more unless i really tightened to the point i felt it was cutting on circulation...which is probably wasn't but i had it in my head at that point.

Those arm things for ur phone are fucking painful. I have a small fanny pack thing which is a bit better, but ideally I would have my music downloaded to my watch. The next Garmin I get, I'll make sure I can download music to it.

Defintely worth it, man.

Sounds silly but it's kinda liberating being out with no phone, just your watch and headphones. Also set up Garmin pay in case of emergencies.

The House that Peterbilt
Me and my neighbor just bought a three acre lot that was between us...............sort of an L shaped thing that was designed for a road and a house lot behind theirs............we split it,Ive now got a new one acre strip along the east side of my original lot and they have the two acres adjacent to the back of their lot............

Did it to keep further development down along the road.............

Also bought a bunch of citrus trees and planted em in the new strip this past weekend.............tangelo,ruby red grapefruit,lime,myers lemon and goliath lemon..............

Room for a bunch more as the lot is skinny but runs the entire length of my original one..............gonna grove it all out methinks............mango and lychees next........

:rofl

No. But good joke! :thumbsup

Actually not buying anything for Valentine's Day this year. Spent enough on the missus going on holiday with her last week.

:hat

As luck had it I'd already booked for me and the wife to go away this Saturday to see King and I so Valentine's Day is sorted too. It was pure accident the date I picked dropped on this weekend. Bit of a bonus though.

Sounds awesome, man.

Was actually looking at citrus trees on Sunday. Toying with the idea, but only two as I only have half an acre at it's a fenced in yard type space. Just a bit concerned about them attracting insect and/or wildlife. I've just had two huge oaks removed too which is awesome in terms of space and light but it has fucked my grass up. So need to fix that somehow.

8 chilli plants from eBay.

Grow loads from seed but they have struggled to germinate this year so ordered plants today.With our shite summer we need all the time to get the best out of them so not going to seed more.Tomatoes have all come through so the house will be like a nursery until they can be put out in to the greenhoose.

thanks :cheers

Im up at about four acres now so Ive got plenty of room for fruit...........and Im in the swamp up against a wildlife preserve so I aint keeping the beasties out,eh?

Anyway,you shouldn't have any problem with a nice tree or two..............bees like citrus blossoms and they smell amazing when in bloom.........animals aint gonna jump yer fence for a few fallen oranges or whatever.............this is florida man and that shit grows everywhere

Id really suggest a mango though.............hands down my favorite and very pretty.............nice shade tree as well,when they get bigger.............something citrus never really offers
