A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Welcome to 2018!! I hope everyone had a fun and safe night and if you drank a little too much, you are recovered by now! I woke up a little groggy, but am feeling good now.
Did y’all catch my New Year Resolutions I posted this morning? Nothing too crazy, but a few things I want to work on to help make myself a better person. In the previous years I would definitely set some fitness related ones. Do a certain # of workouts a week or run a certain amount of miles. Not this year though. I’m just trying to make myself more well rounded mentally and physically.
If you have followed along for the last month, you have noticed I have been taking it easy in the gym. I am ready to start back up though and get back into my workout routines. I’m not going to go crazy, but try to be a little more consistent and hitting the weights a little harder.
I did a workout on Saturday (see below) and it’s the worst I’ve felt in a workout in long time. I was grasping for air but my body just wasn’t taking any in. Honestly the last time I felt like that was after I got my appendix out in 7th grade and I started to workout again (workout in the terms of playing sports and doing specific training classes with teammates). And I felt like shit feeling like that. I don’t think it’s specifically because I have been taking it easy (although I know it had a factor in it) and it probably had some to do with the movement combo, but I hated feeling like that. Like I was trying so hard, but my body couldn’t do anything.
So to say the least, I’m ready to start getting back into some high intensity stuff. My stress levels have calmed down and my hormones are starting to balance out some and I’m ready to start to feel like myself again. Working out is such a huge part of my daily life and while it was nice taking it easy the past month, I looking forward to start working hard again and pushing myself.
Is there anything you are looking forward to this year?
