day 1240 – amrapping

image

my movements are still limited so i had to deviate from my regular thursday lifts. a simple workout that didn’t require a lot of equipment but required a lot of fighting with inner self. it was a heart pounding one that had me drenched within a minute. there were so many times i could’ve stopped and gave up but didn’t. i missed this feeling of exhaustion and really needed it, but my body tells me otherwise. i will wake up tomorrow in pain and my legs will hate me every step of the way, but i’m proud i pushed through. just a testament that i’m physically stronger than i think and that i need to work harder mentally. i feel like i needed this so i deserve to eat tonight

day 1168 – nailed it

image

i felt good when i tested my back two days ago, so i’m going for more. i said i wanted to be back in the one plate club so i went and got it – without extra pain. i had to scale my activities and exercises down considerably for two months and was shut down from almost everything for the past three weeks, but i think i finally see the light again. i’m stoked to get back into the thick of things, but i’ll still take it step by step. also very pleased that my midterm was extremely well done, although there’s one mark i shouldn’t have lost

day 655 – don’t stop grinding

image

it’s victoria day long weekend and i find myself not used to having extra time off so might as well go to the gym. i really should be resting since my back and knees are tight, but that wouldn’t be my style. it was awfully quiet at nash, and i like it that way because i hate waiting for equipment. i must keep grinding; don’t stop because other people stop to enjoy their long weekend. loving the new benches and wished they were adding new benches instead of replacing old ones

day 561 – blender bottle

i wasn’t sure if i would have enough left in the tank to make it through gym cause my sugar level was feeling low as i was driving there. getting up the three flights of stairs to the gym was a little challenging and wobbly. pleased i made some personal bests, killed my gym session, walked out feeling good and ended thursday with a bang. and now i am fueling myself with some¬†protein while¬†doing some maintenance work
