day 1093 – dial back

image

a day of climbing out of the dark and back into the light. the past forty eight hours had a lot more downs than ups, but i will spend much of the next hours, days, weeks and years making it infinitely better. i am strong enough to withstand the circumstances thrown at me. it is time to repair myself and look for new directions. i can always bank of having companions by my side to talk it over

day 949 – so green

image

dinner full of green food felt like the way to turn the corner and slowly leave that nasty cold behind. getting back to eating more greens is the goal instead of grabbing what’s most available. never thought i would ever say i missed my veggies, but i really do after a stretch of not so health conscious food. time to get healthy and stay healthy, the big events are fast approaching

day 803 – lift them

couldn’t get through my conscience without hitting the gym after a horrible eating day. just pigged out terribly bad past two days i feel like crap. no more thanksgiving pigging out for me, eating is so overrated. the horrible combination of bad eating and no exercise makes it so tough to get back into the thick of training, and really showed for it at the gym today. i sure didn’t make the numbers today and that’s a warning i must step it up

day 775 – inflexibility

it’s that time of the month again, or the start of another training season that begins really soon. stretching for real for the first time for what must have been at least seven weeks to see how much flexibility i have lost. man, it’s not a good sign when my legs and joints are feeling this tight. it won’t be fun but i guess that’s what i pay for with my laziness and procrastination. one way or another, i will need to regain the flexibility back in a matter of days. the sporadic laziness during the so called offseason really doesn’t make my life any easier

day 772 – writing outline

image

have my competition outline all sketched out but not ready for submission since it’s all written on starbucks napkins. been postponing this tedious and always stressful process but finally took the initiation to sit down and plan it all out. no matter how long i put this off, i will still have to get it done cause it doesn’t do itself. offseason is officially over, let’s get 2015 competition training under way this september and hope for the best
