Workout and Word of the Day #16

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Happy February!  This week is flying by and I have no complaints.  I could stand to study more, but that is what the weekend is for, right?  Also, I need to start waking up earlier too.  Just some notes to myself…

Workout of the Day: Pull Workout

*Complete each exercise 5 x 5 times

  1. Superman
  2. 1-arm Dumbbell Row (on all 4’s)
  3. Seated Rows
  4. Wide-grip Lat Pull-Down
  5. Bicep Curls
  6. Back Bends (10 of them)

Word of the Day:

largesse– noun

  1. Liberal giving (as of money) to or as if to an inferior.
  2. Generosity.

I don’t know, if you ask me those 2 definitions almost seem contradictory.  The first one sounds like the money is given begrudgingly.  Generosity just seems more altruistic to me.  This word does sound pretty fancy.  I am not sure how I feel about it and I don’t think I am going to use it in conversation.  Maybe hangman…

The end of January has come and gone and now we are starting a new month.  This is a good time to check in.  How are you doing with your fitness goals and goals in general?  I think my fitness routine is helping me hold my life together.  It has been something for me to consistently look forward to and I am enjoying the process!  

I would like to do a better job of phoning in my nutrition and waking up earlier.  I better start studying now.  I hope you will have a lovely rest of your day!

  1. I am starting to look forward to your word of the day and hope to see more of your posts
    And with largesse – I get what you mean by the way the first definition sounds – but I think the word inferior is problematic –
    That word does have a cold vibe to the giving – like pity almost
    But I think “inferior” was a poor word choice here
    This is liberal giving ((from plenty- yet still effort because sometimes those with a lot cannot be generous as they get tight and worried and collect more money))
    But largesse is an ultimate giver –
    One who considers needs of others and not to impress or make his own way better – but because there is need
    That is my take at least

    1. I am so happy that you share my love of learning new words. I started writing these posts because I wanted to make sure I was still exercising my body and my brain. I agree. Inferior is a problematic word when it comes to this definition. Largesse does have a cold feeling to it almost like the word “nonchalant.” I prefer the idea of an ultimate giver. Thanks for sharing your take on the word! I will keep learning and sharing new words!
