back to the gym. These 20lbs aren’t gonna lose themselves now are they?
After a shitty day I come down to my sanctuary at midnight and my troubles start to go away….
This is pretty much the set up I would love to have… my idea of a “Man Cave” fuck TVs and beers!
Throw in a Concept II rower and MAYBE a treadmill and I’d have my own happy little gym.
Went in, had a good workout. This is the most consistently I’ve gone to the gym in a while. My body is feeling it, but the good kind of feeling it. I’m sore, but not injured sore you know?
After the Gymnastics on Tuesday I was really, really sore so I opted to make yesterday a rest day. Muscles I didn’t even know I was using Tuesday night were sore Wednesday and today, my obliques, my abs, my traps, and forearms were burning with the fiery rage of a hundred suns, and you know what? I was content, I was happy, and I felt good (despite also being barely able to walk).
I’m happy to be getting back into fitness, and even though I’m not seeing the “results” on the scale, I’m definitely finding the workouts are getting easier, and the weight I’m lifting getting heavier.
Fuck yeah fitness.
- Stay strong
Getting ready to jump back in to hard training for the next 3 weeks! No school = time for proper nutrition and gym! Let’s see what I can do with these 3 weeks!
I had that realization, that I think most people who start trying to eat healthy eventually notice.
I had an issue today, and a lapse of judgement; I went to McDonalds for lunch and then Chipotle for dinner… I managed to keep the Chipotle SORT of healthy (just the chicken and veggies). I was feeling pretty good, and my calorie count was actually pretty decent even with the crappy food too.
Then I went to the gym… I could feel the difference in my performance in the gym, I could feel it in how I did on the rowing machine, and how much more difficult it was to get my reps completed for my weight training exercises.
I got my workout in, and I did work out and felt like I was working hard, but the exercises were difficult, and I didn’t feel as productive as when I had better fuel in my body.
I know it’s basic nutrition info, but it just sort of hit me like a brick.
