day 1609 – gym needs

headache at work got pretty bad again to the point where i didn’t seem useful and should just go home. but i stayed and kept thinking the tylenol will kick in soon enough. i was only looking forward to going to the gym, and stubborn enough even if i were to collapse during. i really wanted to since i haven’t made up for the missed monday and i wasn’t about to do another shuffle nor write off this week

day 1568 – buckle down

it’s inexcusable that so many times i lose my self discipline and stray off from what i need to be doing. there’s been a lot of pressure from different sources of life and i’m struggling trying to stand my ground. i didn’t sign up for this, maybe i was meant to be alone in the dark, forever. i’m so stressed out; it’s been disappointing the stress has so much impact on my willpower and the lack of it. there is no excuse to not have a better habit and stick with what i want

day 1332 – new pumps

the major delay is over as i decided it’s finally time to pull out the new pumps. they felt amazing from the get go and required no breaking in. doing the same program but only everything seemed so much harder after taking a whole month break. it was a battle, but the satisfaction of grinding through the workout and getting my squats done overpowers. i must say i missed those lifts and glad to be cleaning again. hopefully the pumps will spark my comeback and get me back on track 

day 1309 – sanctuary

today was a horrible day that i just want to forget about. i made it to work but didn’t make it to school. stepping foot into the place that has been my sanctuary ever since i was a member. i can’t deny not having worked out for ten plus days has killed me. lifting has been a huge part of my routine; the lifestyle that i learned i couldn’t live without. i can always count on it to cool my steam and calm my nerves. it was all good until i received calls that made me break down a second time 

day 1285 – badbell hog

it seems everyone is busy with super bowl sunday so there’s no meatheads to be seen. i had the whole cage to myself so i carried out my work using a pair of barbells. i decided my big weights for leg must go on after power skating, so even though skating session today was a tougher one than all previous times, i couldn’t change my mind. i knew i made a mistake of deciding to go straight into that workout, but i don’t regret one bit of having completed it as planned. it was heavy on my shoulders and my legs still feel the burn as i lay in bed, but the fact i pushed through is satisfying 

day 1272 – monday eye bags

monday work went by so slow after only catching four hours and thirteen of snooze time. i didn’t even bother it contacts this morning because my eyes were so tired. when work finally came to an end, i happily dragged my butt to the gym for my monday routine working out before sour catch kids games. noticing i’m adapting better to the program with each successive workout 

day 1258 – at the cage

my legs are sore from yesterday’s workout, but also been a little too casual with the rolling and releases lately. my left knee is pretty banged up but onwards with my program regardless; hitting up a different location, but still hammering down on those same exercises. aside from the unusual tightness, i felt good and pushed through my routine with less difficulty
