day 1040 – matinée movie

image

sunday is our recharge day; we needed it more than any other sunday. we were both spent from spartan race and other activities yesterday, but that doesn’t stop us from getting our iron fix. for the rest of the day, we occupied ourselves with low energy consumption activities such as catching a matinée movie, window shopping and a short stroll. the temperature spiked today but the weather was beautiful, dripping sweat with the slightest movement

day 1036 – familiar territory

image

they say a bad day can be made better by going to the gym – i agree. this is one of my happy place; one that i can feel safe like my home. it’s a great feeling to be back at the nash i was so used to before i went on a galore of travelling. i’ll be back often and be a regular again. i am ready to break a sweat for a night session and beat out all the troubles at hand. definitely starting the month of june off with a good session, a month of many good things to look forward to and work hard for

day 996 – supersets

image

friday night spent in my sanctuary lifting and dropping some iron. feels great to be back in the gym regularly after a long layoff from all the recent illnesses and misfortunes. taking it easy this week as i’m told, and only doing things that won’t cause too much discomfort. it’s definitely frustrating having lost so much gains i’ve worked hard at, but doesn’t deter me from working back to my top form. no question i am still feeling the effects but i am also feeling slightly better with each passing day. it makes me a little more grateful that i can do what i do, and i can do what i love

hanging around with the big boys with the big weights. finally stepping it up and trying to befriend that sixty and sixty-fiver for rows. elbow held up well for back day, but once dodgeball rolled around, it’s completely shot again. clearly something is really wrong with it but i still haven’t figured it out. i need to get to the bottom of this in a hurry. i can’t go through the rest of the season either not throwing or throwing in pain

day 932 – unyielding

if taping up my thumb solves the problem then there’s no problem. a visit to the doctor might be inevitable if the pain persists, but in the meantime, let’s get some work done. this place has been more than a sanctuary for me through my many moods and emotions. whatever i am going through, be it stresses and problems, the gym and its iron is the cure to most of it

while my parents sent me a picture of themselves at the gym in mexico resort, so was i. getting on with my 2016 gyming just like any other day. is it really true that people make new year’s resolution to hit the gym starting january doesn’t get past the first week?? there’s not many survivors here from what i can see, but i am not complaining cause that means more space for me. less waiting and more doing to climbing closer to my fitgoals with every rep

day 876 – eve workout

spending morning of my christmas eve at the gym banging out the reps because scheduled work never stops. it was a workout i needed to get in because it put me at ease and made me feel right. i felt particularly bad i lost track of time yesterday and didn’t make it into the gym like originally intended. a tiring session as usual and i’m exhausted leaving the gym, but it was definitely the energizer that sparks the rest of the day
