I got some workout shirts and a baseball cap at Bob’s today (which were much needed)!
Afterwards I ran to the gym to do a quick back and bicep workout. I got a lot done in 40min, which I’m happy about, but I feel like I should have been there longer.
I deadlifted today but stopped at 175 because, when I stop up, I almost passed out. I left after that because I was scared I was gonna topple over if I kept going.
SO NOW I just finished some protein pancakes and a huge glass of water. After I’m done cleaning my room, I’m gonna do some yoga then go for a run:) hope everyone is having a happy, healthy and beautiful day! xoxo
I PR’d my back squat at 155
And my front squat at 90
Both below parallel
It’s not much but I’m damn proud of it xo
I’m trying to take it easy this week because I’ve hit a really bad lifting plateau.
It’s getting harder to get up in the morning.. That melt down I had last week in my car? It happened again today while I was driving home from the grocery store.
I just started crying. I’m lightheaded, I’ve lost a good majority of my appetite, I’m mentally distant and I just feel like nothing is worth anything.
It’s a weird feeling, really. I’m tired of getting up and moving when I’m not going anywhere.
My therapist is meeting with my tonight so hopefully I’ll be able to get some stuff out to her. For now, I’m forcing myself to go to the gym for a bit and have a light workout. A few more front squats today, then back and biceps.
Hope everyone is having a good day
These past few days at the gym, I picked up on a few things and thought I would share.
1. If someone is using a rack or a machine that you want to use, DO NOT wait right next to that person, stare intensely at them, and proceed to ask them if they’re almost done 20 minutes later. Then, when they say no, continue you stand and stare at them.
If someone is using a rack or machine you want, do something else! Do not hover over them like a vulture waiting for an animal to die.
2. It doesn’t matter where you are in the gym (with the exception of the locker room), DO NOT start babbling on your phone for everyone to here. If it’s an urgent call you need to make, take it outside or to the locker room.
There’s no need to scream into a phone in the middle of the weight room. Not everyone is blasting music through headphones.. come on, guys. Be respectful.
3. If someone is using the squat rack, DO NOT stand on their platform and watch them/watch yourself flex in the mirror. Just don’t do it.
4. By the way, wearing your baseball cap backwards is scientifically proven to lower your dead lift by 10% and your IQ by at least double that.
GONNA TRY A FRONT SQUAT TODAY
ARG I’M SO PUMPED
CAN YOU TELL I’M HYPED UP ON COFFEE? GOD I LOVE COFFEE
-I walked 10 miles around the track (my best friend walked 26.25 miles.. she is an absolute tank and I can’t even express how proud I am of her).
-I managed to function off of two cups of coffee
-I didn’t sleep at all
-I reunited with an old friend, who I am now (more than I was before) extremely attracted to (wrestles, lifts weights, AND is gorgeous. He has a fabulous ass too just FYI)
-I made a new friend
-I played some frisbee
-I had an absolutely amazing night and I could not be happier right now xoxo
I really need to stop trying new pre workouts because the one I got tastes like grape flavored fever-medicine for children.
I can’t even finish the drink.. Fingers crossed that it gives me an insane amount of energy xo
Atleast for month. If I feel a change in how I feel, my lifts, and my body, then I’ll continue it. If not, then I’ll eat the way I did before.
I think it will be good for me.. I hope so.
Paleo it is! xoxo
