PARENTS: Childproofing cabinets: can anyone recommend a good locking system?
nope. Most plastic things are shit and I get/got totally frustrated with them. I just emptied out the lowers and judiciously used gates where I couldn't. - Lnorigb
Electric plugs and the little U shaped cabinet locks if you have the right type of cabinets. Also great idea to move the evil crap up out of the way. The best defense is an attentive set of eyes on the kid at all times. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
The u shaped ones are ok. The ones that go around the knobs. - Christina Pikas
We used very strong magnet locks. - Xabaras (G.O.) from FFHound!
Sadness in my FB feed. Sending up prayers and good thoughts to the universe.
I truly dislike this first phase of pregnancy. The constant nausea and exhaustion. The feeling of not accomplishing anything. All the laundry. I hate it.
Real talk. *hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Compounded by having responsibility for another child. You have my heartfelt condolences. hugs! - Yvonne Renee

I kicked this morning's challenge ass! 3 rounds on the circuit in 12:13.
Tonight: squat challenge. I rock that shit.
*high fives* You're amazing! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I do love the squats, my best crossfit station too! - Janet
One minute burpee challenge....oh how you can go fuck yourself.
I don't know what this means but I love it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Lololol it's an exercise that sucks ass. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Burpees are squat thrusts? - Janet from FFHound!
Yes they are Janet...aka hell...except you jump at the end, instead of just returning to a standing position. - Chris Topher
Burpees are kind of a combination of push-ups and squat thrusts. They seem easy at the start, but get exponentially more difficult the more you do them. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I really want to start a food/household supplies pantry for the community.
What would that look like? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Does anyone listen to the Last Podcast on the Left?

2 minute plank....boot camp you're killing me.
21 people at boot camp tonight. I think that's a record.
I feel so out of it today.
Time change? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I think so. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I created a group to discuss the podcast, Serial. I am totally addicted to this true crime story and would love to discuss theories and facts with others. Please join if you're interested.
Ready for 5:30 boot camp. Bring it, bitches!
Every member of this family, including the cats, are still in their beds. What kind of sorcery is this?!?!?!
The smart kind. - Steven Perez from Android
My daughter is in LOVE with Elmo. Anything Elmo she freaks out for. This morning at music class one of the girls was dressed as Elmo for Halloween. Did my daughter try to tackle her with hugs at least 3 times....yes. Yes, she did.
JFC there are a lot of angry people walking around on Monday mornings.
A full week of boot camp, watching my food intake and drinking half my weight in water has resulted in a loss of 6 pounds and 6 inches off of my body. That includes 3 inches off my hips and 2.5 off my thighs. I'm a believer.
By half your weight in water, do you mean an oz of water for each pound? - Katy S
Yup. - Mary Carmen
No way!!! That's awesome!!!! You've worked so hard this week. How do you feel? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
(That sounds like enough water to drown me!!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That's great MC!! Are you still doing all that crazy walking you were doing right after the baby was born? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Did you go on the weekend, too? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I don't get to walk as much as I used to, but I still try to get out several times a week. I go on Saturday morning, except not this week because they were having an event. There is no session on Sunday. Rest day. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Congrats. That is a tough, tough thing to do. - Laura Krier
Boot camp week 2: it's all about that ass, that ass, no treble.
