day 1213 – chasing two plates

image

dragged my butt out of bed early this morning to door crash for my new fitbit. four days removed from the gym, and it’s driving me crazy. i haven’t moved enough since and needed to get my workout in no matter dizzy or groggy. getting through my usual sets of exercises were tough but expected, a few times i did feel my head was spinning. my power cleans felt out of sync but that didn’t come to surprise me because i felt weakened. knowing so, i stepped down on some poundage on most exercises, all except for my deads. i’m shocked of the progress of my deads as i’m one step closer to making the two plate club

day 1080 – antidote

image

yesterday was a forgettable day, but today is a new day and i can’t stay down for long. the unwanted things that went through my head was erased by a much needed workout. going all in and straight for all the heavy lifts today; exhausting my body is my most effective stress reliever. this has really become a therapeutic activity for me because my mind wanders less when i am physically engaged. all i want to focus on correcting what’s wrong and strive to be better

day 899 – at the bar

getting my lifting done this evening on an empty stomach and an afternoon of teaching can be pretty crappy. but i can’t be the one to complain, i deserved it because i regretfully failed to check into the gym this morning. cranking out my deadlifts anyways and really needing to empower myself to get back on track. it’s really time to tighten up and focus on my goals after deviating and spoiling myself too much this week

day 858 – kt taping

my elbow is feeling crappy after throwing it out and decided it’s in need of attention because it isn’t in good condition for playoffs tomorrow. getting some much needed chiropractic help on the sideline at monday playoffs. i was feeling so happy when i heard my classes got cancelled today so i can stay the whole duration instead of teaching. my legs were damn right sore and really wanted to skip today’s workout but seeing tribe fitness personally at dodgeball gave me all the pressure and motivation to never skip a workout no matter what i feel. i know for a fact she wouldn’t be happy if i had skipped out, and i am glad i didn’t cause here i was banging out my deadlifts

day 846 – coffee call

image

i succumbed to having caffeine so here i am sitting at starbucks with my coffee in one hand while my laptop is propped in front of me. trying to be productive at the coffee shop before heading to training and dodgeball. i don’t know what exactly turned my body on, but i definitely went into it with an extra boost of energy. being able to crank out five sets of deadlifts is a hefty number. i do expect my back to feel very sorry for all that i managed to crank out today. my fitbit line is amazing and i feel great with the numbers i made today. just praying that dehydration wouldn’t play a huge factor and cause multiple calf cramps that prevents me from sleeping
