    Yeah, got to keep on doing it - else may as well give up on living right now, and I mean that in a very literal sense (so kicking that thought out, because it has NO business being here even after everything)...

    I hope I can help, Bill - my Motivationals are there to encourage and motivate in the tough times, to remind of the power we have over ourselves and our lives, and inspire that fierce courage and determination and will to just get out there and do it!!!

    Rosie those pics are great! I love the one in the gown with you kneeling. Your legs looks amazing in those heels too. I know genetics, you don't have to work them and all. Regardless they look absolutely amazing. The red outfit was pretty awesome too!

    Thanks, Chris That first gown was gorgeous! I loved it. Felt like a fairy-tale princess in it...Not genetics (well, maybe some), but mostly the years of being active, plus cycling and sprinting. Believe me, I have to start working on my legs more re definition and getting rid of the dimples that have started appearing on the back (sigh)...It's was definitely a fun and day full of smiles and surprises. Seeing different aspects of me that one would usually never see...Dom and Tony are a true "Dream Team"...

    I don't wanna feel like this tomorrow...don't wanna live like this today...


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    DO What You HAVE To Do For YOU

    Life is always going to be full of things that we have no control over, no matter how much we wish in our hearts that it would change, or that people would change, and SEE us deep inside our soul for who we are and could be, and understand and appreciate what we have to give and offer. Sometimes the people we love the most are the people who we should NOT even care about, the people we should let GO of, because they are not the people who are THERE walking beside us through life, whether by some circumstances they cannot control even if they want to, or they simply don’t care.

    The love I loved the most I lost before I even had a real chance to have it and know what it was like, taken from me by the one I loved the most because they did not have the courage or the strength in them to believe in something that could have been the most beautiful thing that life might ever have chanced them with. And even though I was ready to reach out my hand and step into that chance, I was pushed back and thrown down, cast away and let fall like a star falls from the sky in the deepest dark of night, a bright flash of light fading from existence, so fast that I wonder if anyone even noticed it was gone.

    Some of the deepest sorrows we hold close when we need to let them GO. We hold onto memories and hope and faith when we should long have moved ON. We let it eat away at our souls, unconsciously destroying ourselves from WITHIN, until we are but shadows haunting this world with our presence, because we are no longer fully alive, lost and wandering, not wanting to find our way, because our way is gone from us and all that is left is the darkness that consumes what is left of our hearts, which are exhausted and just want to STOP and sleep and never wake up.

    But that is not living, only merely existing and if we merely exist we may as well BE dead. Even though it hurts more than anything else ever might, we HAVE to open our eyes and realize what we are doing to ourselves, that life was NOT meant to be lived in darkness, our hearts not meant to lose hope, our souls not meant to be cast from the heavens into the pits of hell, not meant to STOP living, nor stop in our journey at all. We are meant to keep MOVING, moving FORWARD, because just because one person does not care enough about our soul does not mean that WE should give up on it as well.

    We MUST keep moving forward, even if we don’t want to. We MUST do it for ourselves, because we know deep down in our innermost core that it is the BEST thing to do. It may take time as you grieve, to come out of the shadows, a mere whisper of life as you cautiously step back into the journey that is waiting for you. DON’T let someone else compromise your life and how it should be lived. Don’t let them take away your joy, your happiness, your ability to think and feel and wonder. Even if they are the best thing that could have ever happened to you, if they cause you to be like this, then they truly are NOT, and you must do what you know in your heart you NEED to do for YOU to LIVE your life the way you were MEANT to.

    Quote for Reflection:



    TRAINING

    Day OFF


    OTHER NOTES

    Sleep: Went to bed just before 0230 this morning, but although completely shattered it took me a while to fall asleep. When I did, it was deep and black for ~5 hours. Still felt drained of all energy on waking, but got up for about half an hour before going back to bed, passing out for ~3 hours, dreaming this time, strange dreams.

    Mental Acuity: My mind has been on the go since the time I got up for good and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I've gotten a lot done, alert and ready!

    Mood: Interesting. Odd. Just a combination of everything going on.

    Energy: It's this week's day OFF training today, so whether I have energy or not doesn't matter. That said, I KNOW I could hammer out a training session if I wanted to and are SO tempted to - the only thing holding me back is the fact that my delt/biceps' tendons are still painful and the day of rest might do them so good.

    Stress: High - stressing myself out, and it's not the "good"/productive stress I either.

    Libido: In tune with my mood at the moment.

    Joints: Constant pain in both delt/biceps' tendons now.

    Body Composition: 8.9% bodyfat - a loss of 1.1% bodyfat over this last week (yes, due to a combination of multiple factors, I was not very happy to see that I was 10% bodyfat last week, and ashamed with myself so much so that it's taken this long to admit it, since I have not been over 9.5% bodyfat in over a year - now I am doing my best to make sure I don't go over 9% bodyfat again). My delts and arms are both still symmetrical re girths (flexed and unflexed) and are looking so much better than they were (yes, even from 10 days ago - so the quantities of calories I have been consuming has helped some here, if nowhere else) - when I'm training, the separation in the muscles is becoming quite noticeable, and I like it. Now to just get my lower body to behave and slim back DOWN - more sprinting and evening runs in training from next week.

    Training: Going to continue on with similar training that I did this week for the next few weeks, since my body has responded well to it - just adding in a couple more evening runs, since they definitely make me FEEL better.

    Nutrition: It's been worse than usual and has not contributed to my "physical" feeling. I've been constantly "hungry" (like I was when I was using G8), eating anything and everything, not caring that 90% of what I have been consuming my body is sensitive to, or I simply do not even like or want it. The low after the high, I guess. STOPPING that now though, because my body deserves RESPECT and to be taken care of, not to be abused.

    Supplements: Should have all MY "staples" back next week.

    Other Notes: The June 2012 issue of FitnessX Magazine is out for viewing - you can read it online for free HERE.

    Overall Sense of Feeling: I KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO FOR ME. BACK ON TRACK!

    Is your world just a broken promise...your love just a drop of rain...


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    YOU are the CREATOR of your OWN DESTINY


    Quote for Reflection: “♥ The creation of your REALITY begins with your THOUGHTS ~ “BAIT” your “HOOK” properly! ♥ COGNITIONS will bring the identical EXHIBITIONS into your life. You will “ATTRACT” back a certain “fish” based on the “LURE” that you USE, so be very SELECTIVE with the one that you CHOOSE! Before “CASTING” your “LINE”, make sure the “CHUM” is “IN line” with the EXACT fish that you would like to see COME! ♥ EXPECT only the BEST for yourself and have your ACTIONS follow suit with those thoughts. If you want the “BIGGEST” fish in the OCEAN, do not select a “ROD” that cannot handle the “MOTION”! ♥ BELIEVE yourself to be capable of attracting the grandest fish of the “SEAS”…IMAGINE bass and trout, without thoughts of minnows or anchovies! Do not allow your thoughts to “BOB” up-and-down as to what you are DESERVING of. Believe yourself to be worthy of the most “prize-winning” “GAME”…and that is exactly what you will “REEL IN” ♥ If you “CATCH” yourself thinking negative thoughts, simply “RELEASE” them and refocus on “PULLING IN” POSITIVITY. “TURN THE TIDE” of life in your favor by looking for the “UPSIDE” in all circumstances ♥ Become a “MAGNET” for all things AMAZING! You do not have to travel in a “SCHOOL” to be aware that your MIND is your greatest “TOOL”…use it to “TACKLE” life, “HOOK, LINE, & SINKER!!” ♥” - Lauren Christine Frahn




    TRAINING

    Session 1

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 28 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min jogging

    Stretch 29 min

    Shoulders (1 min recovery between sets):
    1. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 4 x 15, 12, 9, 9
    2. BB Military Press 4 x 10 9, 8, 8
    2. Plate Lateral Raises 4 x 15

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min @ 105 rpm

    Session 2

    Hamstrings (1 min recovery between sets):
    1. Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift (on bench, reaching barbell down 6 inches) 4 x 12

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Run 3 miles


    OTHER NOTES

    Sleep: ~6 hours, after having to exhaust myself to get TO sleep first. Woke from dreams so real the emotion they evoked was as if they HAD happened.

    Energy: There, calmly.

    Joints: Pain in both delt/biceps' tendons. And in my LEFT shoulder deep in the joint.

    Pump: With the newest Assault, I get this hard and fast, no matter what I have done PRIOR to weights, nothing or something, which is one of the things I am liking about this formula.

    Quality of Training: Back to my HIIT OUTside - it was nice, but also very hot and only got hotter, making it a little hard to breathe. Did 28 sprints as fast as I could, feeling it in my left shoulder during and after...Down to the basement today for weights. The other skipping rope that I have is not a speed rope and can be annoying to use, so I left the skipping from my resistance session/s today. Shoulders in the morning, Hamstrings in the evening. Anterior delts in a lot of pain, particularly in my left shoulder during most exercises, and winced my way through them - hence also the lower volume of that session, which only took 20 minutes to do (very short compared to my usual 50-60 minutes of intensity)...Hamstrings were fine - no Assault before this session, since it was so short and can't even really even be called a session, IMO. Then 3-mile run afterwards, just to make my body suffer more, welcoming the pain...

    Supplements: Recompadrol is available again (so I'll have some more by the end of the week)!

    Been getting off the stationary bike and getting in more actual bike rides lately, love it. Plug in ear buds, crank the volume and just roll. Love it! Set a new PR with 7.5 miles in 93 degree's yesterday, I certainly felt that one when it was all over.

    Yeah, there is a HUGE difference between cycling on a stationary bike and riding one outside, even from using a spin bike to riding on the road. It's a freeing feeling being out on the road, and if you're doing a long ride alone, then music (or a good imagination) is a must. If you're not used to it, then yeah, you'll feel it too, depending on the terrain you cycled over. Glad to hear you enjoyed it though, Tony

    I've got a cycling story. Where I went to college, they were just starting up a cycling team so regular students were going out (since it was just a club sport at the time) they were riding around the quad just "warming up" I guess.

    Well I was walking to the weight room when this poor girl (who I KNOW had never 'cycled' starting wobbling and like a slow motion demolition of a tall building she started to fall over, it was from an almost stand still. I felt so bad bc w e had locked eyes as she started going down and there was nothing anyone could do. I went over to help her, as she looked like a helpless turtle flipped over on their shell.

    When I got over I asked if she was ok, she replied "you know, it's ok to laugh histartically at what just happened, I imagine it was damn funny" at that moment we both burst into laughter. I had an upper level art class with her and never really spoke to her before that, after that we spoke quiet often. She helped me with passing that fancy 400 level art class (needed it to graduate) & I helped her with her diet for cycling & life. Turned out to become friends.

    That's how my only encounter with cycling changed my life. Lol

    Sorry to hear about that, Amy, and yes, will keep you in my prayers. Try for lots of smoothies - doesn't matter what blender you use, but you can use smoothie mixes or create your own (using ice and fruit and yoghurt, BCAAs, etc.), protein shakes re gainers (if you can't get in a lot of calories otherwise).

    Thanks, John I really enjoying doing them and it's always great to see how much I improve from one to the next with everything (which is the goal - aside from the purpose of them).

    I lost my Star but not my Light


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    What Makes You Come ALIVE


    You have a passion in your heart for a REASON. What you care about, love to do, desire to share - this is YOUR PASSION. Itís what makes you COME ALIVE.

    When you do something that brightens your soul and lights you up from the inside out, others canít help but NOTICE. When they notice, you KNOW your actions have an IMPACT. You want that impact to make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE.

    When your very life in actions and words, everything you do and are, makes a positive difference, you are doing the world a GREAT SERVICE. This is what the world NEEDS. People who affect CHANGE, whether they are conscious of it or not, simply because they are being who they ARE and following their HEARTS in doing what makes them come ALIVE.

    You never know the ripple of EFFECT that YOUR life can have. When you do what makes YOU come alive, you can IGNITE the LIGHT inside OTHERS. When othersí light begins to shine forth into the world and they follow your example in living out their heartís passion, TRUE DIFFERENCE can be made.

My right is getting back to that point, and I was having to dig my nails into it between sets and during post-weights cardio to try and minimize the pain. Might have to start using some Aleve again.

    Pump: Again, right from the start.

    Vascularity: Excellent.

    Quality of Training: It was an interesting session in the gym to say the least. I'm glad I did it and felt better afterwards for it, but I was also in a lot of pain during and after (and still am).

    The stuff you push yourself through is pretty intense Rosie, you are one intense individual.

    On a cycling note. I think I am finally getting a road bike to ride in the MS150 this coming year. Jo agreed to take me to Sun & Ski to pick up a bike for Fathers day. What do you think about these 7 and 8 speed bikes now? Do you feel there is enough variety of gears for hill climbing and what not. I like the idea of not having to shift constantly, but would hate to find myself dying for an easy gear on an long uphill stretch.

    I HAVE to push through it, Chris. If I don't, well...let's not go there...

    Re cycling, I can't remember the last time I rode a bike (aside from a track bike) with less than at least 18 gears. My road bike - which was my training bike, and is pretty much a "relic" now (although top of the line when I got just 10 years ago - man, has it been THAT long?!) - has 18 gears, and I highly doubt that ANY road bike now would have LESS than that, and certainly not only 7-8 gears. You don't have to shift constantly if you train for the hills and condition your body for them, or have a gear that you use re specific gradients, etc. If you're going to do 150 miles, then I definitely recommend getting a decent ROAD bike (not a mountain bike - unless you're seriously only doing it for fun and not re time or competition, etc.) - you don't have to get a top-of-the-line one, but having a suitable bike will make a world of difference (and make sure that you get it set up specifically for you too re seat height and handlebars, etc., since if not, your knees WILL suffer, not to mention other issues you could have). Does that help?

    Even with all the physical pain, training is my "saving grace" in far too many more ways than one right now...If I stopped, I may as well give up on life...And that can't happen...Even despite everything...

    Contrast between Illusion and Reality


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    Goal-Getter, Go-Setter, Dream-Catcher


    Quote for Reflection:

    Image credit: Blue Mountain Arts


    TRAINING

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 28 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 1 x 50 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    d. 4 min jogging

    Stretch 20 min


    OTHER NOTES

    Sleep: A little.

    Mood: Out of sorts since after training.

    Energy: I have it, but there is a LOT of pain in both my shoulders, especially INSIDE the joints, particularly my right, that has been bothering me, so much that I do not even want to MOVE my right arm much today.

    Joints: The Aleve is coming out again tonight.

    Quality of Training: I did HIIT, albeit a little later than usual. Both shoulders were hurting during it, but I pushed through. I WAS going to do a second training session this evening, but decided to be smart and give my body some time to recover, especially since it's going to be 2-a-day training back tomorrow, and my shoulders need to be READY for it (even if they're not)!

    With you both on this one. When I was 365..I was obviously not eating in moderation and when I decided it was time to do something about it before it killed me.. I lost 175lbs in 14 months, of weight training and 2 - 3 hour cardio sessions - again not in moderation but at least in the right direction!

    At times now I feel its turned into an obsession - but I'd imagine that is the underlying fear that it will creep back on.

    Well, consuming more then your body required in conjunction with lack of or inadequate exercise. But, kudos to you for making the change, despite maybe going a little overboard on the exercise aspect - although, that said, the more you exercise and the harder you train, the more you can get away with eating as well, so...shrug...

    There is nothing wrong with obsession - so long as it does not become NEGATIVE. Plus, everyone has their own definition of "obsession" - many people who do not live this lifestyle would call those who DO "obsessed" , whereas to us it is NORMAL. All depends on your perspective. This has been my life ever since I can remember, and although far from balanced, I would take this "obsession" over anything else!

    Thanks Rosie. During that time I restricted my calories heavily and they came pretty much only from protein. I will never 'eat' the way I used to again.

    I agree as I have been told by people at work and certain family members that I'm obsessed...where as I would say I am driven. Driven to be stronger, leaner, faster... which can only make my quality of life better!

    By the way I'm a few pages into catching up on this log now, and really enjoying it. I certainly know where to turn if I start to lack motivation!!

    Just so long as you weren't starving yourself, Simon. I've never eating in "moderation" (you'll see that from samples meals in some of my interviews, LOL) and I know the way I eat is not healthy, and I AM working on it, if only for my health's sake, but it IS a struggle, and sometimes I AM glad for my body's unusual physiological condition that has meant my nutrition is not as important as my training in my physical conditioning (although that has changed a little since my multiple injuries at the end of last year and from the last few months).

    Driven is a good way to be! NEVER lose sight of that!

    Yeah, it can get long, LOL, but thanks for that. Just to note, most of the Motivationals linked to pre-14 April may not work, since the WPM Women website underwent reconstruction then and now has a new url (just one reason why of late I have just been posting the ENTIRE Motivational).

    If you have any questions about anything in here, feel free to ask (although most of it is pretty self-explanatory, or can be found in previous logs).

    I was definitely starving myself at that time.. most days were well under 1000 calories. I felt like I had to do it in an extreme manner, so that the numbers on the scale would drop rapidly. If not, I would not be have been able to stick to it. Looking back I am surprised I was able to do so much exercise but I think that is where I learnt to be more driven.

    Since then, I have learnt far more about nutrition and so forth. I still love a big meal... and tend to have that one big meal most days. I am just trying to keep my carbs under control - and currently trying to carb cycle but do find that difficult (usually due to outside influences).

    Thanks, I appreciate it and will be sure to ask any questions I may have along the way.

    I'm glad you understand more about nutrition now. Under 1,000 calories - I wouldn't even recommend that to a female; actually I never would and never have (the lowest a FEmale should go IMO is ~1,200 calories, and even then, not for sustained periods of time). I myself still maintain close to ~4,000 calories a day, even if I'm leaning out.

    After all, remember that the SCALE WEIGHT is IRrelevant. You can be losing overall body mass fast, but chances are it's very likely food and/or water weight, especially if you've just started something new or dieting, etc. Believe me, I know - I can (and DO) gain and lose 10-15 pounds in a matter of days very regularly, all dependent on my nutrition and water intake (alongside training).

    Nothing wrong with having a big meal - you'll even see that often my meals ARE ~4,000 calories (or more). And nothing wrong with having carbohydrates either - they are NOT the enemy. If you are sensitive to certain foods re carbohydrates, then either be careful about eating them, or smart about the timing of your consumption and amount of them.

    No worries

    Thanks Rosie... Your meals are around 4000 calories / meal - you must burn it so easily???

    I know I have to get my head around the whole mental block of where I came from. Meaning I feel like I partially always need to be on a cut, and watching alot of what I eat. Which can become frustrating/tiresome. And at times probably sacrifice gains due to still not eating enough, especially in the carbs area.

    I am going to try the carb cycling and the lean gains style. And see how I react to them.

    Thanks again for all the info, both here and in the rest of the thread. Simon.

    Rosie- this log is incredibly insane and I love it!

    Can't believe I hadnt seen it til now!

    Question: when doing your treadmill hiit- do u just jump off for the ten seconds? Bc every treadmill I've used takes ten seconds just to reduce/build speed. However if jumping off and letting the track run at full speed, then calories will be skewed, albeit slightly with only ten seconds rest..

    Also- why so much vit c? I used to take 500-1000mg daily but recently stopped. Lastly- how do u feel about calcium supps? I literally have no dairy aside from occasional cheese.

    Thank you!

    I've always eaten huge, even when I was younger, and what I eat now is NOTHING compared to what I ate then, or even in my cycling days. I wouldn't say I "burn it so easily" at all - I work hard in training, and I've done this for years, and my body has issues, and has adapted to things over the years.

    Absolutely. Your mind is your greatest weapon or enemy. Conquer that, and you're already half-way to achieving your goals!

    Carbohydrate cycling and Lean Gains are both good nutritional methods. I know my body responds well to MY adaptation of Lean Gains, and any time I do NOT follow the 16-hour fast/8-hour feeding window (which has only been a couple of periods since I first started doing that last May), I notice it and do NOT like it. It's definitely a LIFESTYLE nutritional protocol that can be used.

    Yes, if I use the treadmill, I jump onto the sides for those 10 seconds - hence why it says 10 seconds REST. I don't care about the calories and NEVER pay attention to them or track them when training - they are IRrelevant and you should never pay attention to them, IMO, since they will NOT give you an accurate indicator of what is ACTUALLY burnt as a result of that session. Hence why leaning is NOT simply a matter of calories in versus calories out, as I have seen mentioned on this board - it's all a very INDIVIDUAL thing.

    I use so much Vitamin C because my immune system is not the best. Plus, it's the ONLY vitamin I take.

    I used to take a Calcium supplement, but have not for years. Whether you use one is entirely up to you. If you don't get enough from your FOOD, then yes, you might want to supplement with it. If you're lactose intolerant, there are plenty of dairy products that you CAN consume, and you CAN still have dairy (although it may not make you feel so great - as I well know), albeit on a more irregular basis.

    Absolutely. Your mind is your greatest weapon or enemy. Conquer that, and you're already half-way to achieving your goals!

    Carbohydrate cycling and Lean Gains are both good nutritional methods. I know my body responds well to MY adaptation of Lean Gains, and any time I do NOT follow the 16-hour fast/8-hour feeding window (which has only been a couple of periods since I first started doing that last May), I notice it and do NOT like it. It's definitely a LIFESTYLE nutritional protocol that can be used.

    I can do bad all by myself


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    Be Strong


    Quote for Reflection:

    Image credit: Blue Mountain Arts


    TRAINING

    Weights - Full-Body Intended (30 sec recovery between trisets):
    TriSet A -
    1. Single-Arm DB Bent Over Rows 3 x 6 per arm
    2. Plyometric Push-Ups (on fists) 3 x 6
    3. Single-Leg Deadlifts (with twist and lateral reach) 3 x 10 per leg
    TriSet B -
    4. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 3 x 10
    5. BB Military Press 3 x 10
    6. DB Lateral Raises 3 x 10

    *Break 12 min*

    TriSet C -
    7. Swissball Crunches (270 degrees to 180 degrees) 1 x 10
    8. Ab Rollout 1 x 10
    9. Plank 1 x 1 min

    Treadmill:
    a. 1 min @ Incline 4 @ 4 miles/hour
    b. 1 min @ Incline 5 @ 5 miles/hour
    c. 3 min @ Incline 6 @ 6 miles/hour
    d. 10 min @ Incline 3 @ 3 miles/hours


    OTHER NOTES

    Sleep: Actually, ~6 hours of UNinterrupted and deep sleep. Woke feeling like absolute crap though, shoulders both in pain.

    Energy: Felt like I was going to pass out after getting off the treadmill re training today. Sitting on the couch I was suddenly exhausted. Thinking a lot of stress is contributing to this, as well as poor nutrition, and issues with my shoulders - plus, also dosed two tablets of Aleve twice prior to this point today (to help re shoulder pain, although it's not doing much).

    Joints: My left shoulder is the way my right one was a day or two before I woke up and could barely move it without wanting to scream. Please, God, please do NOT let my body break on me again! I have been trying so hard to be more careful with it, smarter with training, going lighter some days to ensure my shoulders do NOT suffer as much, even as I still try to push my body as hard as I can. The fact that it's been six months since I last had a week off from weights might have something to do with it, but I HAVE given myself some easiER weeks in there, some with less resistance session, although the last few weeks, I have added in an extra resistance session here and there. The pain has been a constant nagging in both shoulders today, and after training, I've had to be very careful with any movement re my left, since it IS VERY painful.

    Quality of Training: Today was one of those days when you know if you continue to push on, you're only going to cause some damage. I TRIED to, but in the end...Full-Body session today. Struggled BADLY. My left anterior delt/biceps' tendons (more IN the shoulder though) was so painful that EVERY rep was an effort and I was SO close to tears it was not funny. After battling it out in frustration for two lots of trisets, I decided to stop and just go to the recline bike and be done with it. However, got on that, and was just exhausted. Mentally, I was just NOT there, so got off it and went to sit for a while. After ~12 minutes, I decided to continue with my weights' session, but after one of TriSet C, I was done for. I had NOTHING. Even in my mind, I was GONE from the session. I DID end up walking on the treadmill - for the first time ever on an incline - for 15 minutes, mindlessly walking, just because I needed to do SOMEthing, and because what I HAD done, even though it hurt like hell, felt like I had done NOTHING...So, considering this my day OFF this week...

    Supplements: I now have all my staples back (changes reflected in post #1).

    Overall Sense of Feeling: NOT good. If only I could rewind back ~2.5 weeks, before I got into this funk. But, it can't be done, so only looking FORWARD. I need to get OUT of this funk and back to being ME. NOW!!!

    Other Notes: All the best to everyone competing at the Junior Nationals in Chicago over the next couple of days!

    I'm taking back control


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    The Purpose of Life


    We all have a purpose in life. We all have a philosophy as to how we LIVE. Some live to make a difference, happiness simply a “side” benefit if it occurs. Others live to find the happiness in life, instead of for something greater than self. The world is made up of all kinds of people, and it needs those people to have BALANCE.

    Being happy is a state of mind, of emotions, affected by far more than anyone could ever possibly describe, and for each individual, being happy means something different than it does to the next person.

    Not being happy is not the same as being UNhappy. Those who live to make a difference may not always be happy, but they will likely never be unhappy, for they are doing what they love, and when you do what you love, you have a sense of peace and satisfaction, of fulfilment. Those who live only to find the happiness may never truly know what it is, because if one is never NOT happy, how can they know what true happiness is? And if you ARE happy, what is the point if you have lived selfishly, that happiness true or false, because who can truly be happy being completely selfish?

    Everyone is going to have their own opinion on this and I respect that. Life is a balance of souls and always will be. But let me ask: What are YOU doing with your life? What are you LIVING for? What is your PURPOSE?

    Quote for Reflection:




    TRAINING

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 12 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 2 min jogging

    Stretch 20 min

    Shoulders/Arms/Abs (30 sec recovery between quadsets):
    QuadSet A -
    1. Alternate Single-Arm Plate Lateral Raises 3 x 20
    2. Hammer Raises (each hand with individual plate) 3 x 10
    3. Bent Over Plate Rear Raises 3 x 10
    4. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet B -
    5. Alternate Plate Hammer Bicep Curls 3 x 20
    6. Plate Bicep Curls 3 x 10
    7. Plate Hammer Curls 3 x 10
    8. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet C -
    9. Cable Crunches 3 x 20
    10. Reverse Curls (on floor) 3 x 10
    11. Pikes (on floor) 3 x 10
    12. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min in 39x18 @ 103-105 rpm

    Joints: Shoulders still very pain, right more than left today (go figure). Popping Aleve like some kids do candy (which is not healthy, I know).

    Pump: Painful, especially during QuadSet B.

    Quality of Training: Could barely breathe during HIIT (doing it out in the midday heat didn't help either)...Training in the basement today. In a lot of pain during the weights, but pushing through it regardless, determined to pretend I didn't feel anything, not to give in to the weakness. If my body breaks, then so be it - I'd rather deal with a broken body than a broken soul...


    OTHER NOTES

    Demons and Angels: Pain to Remind You of Your Strength


    My first article for The Iron Mulisha is now up. This piece, almost like a Motivational, was inspired by a very special individual, from a conversation I will never forget, ironically on the day that EVERYthing changed, when life suddenly offers you something so very precious you're not sure whether or not to believe that it's real or truly meant for you, your secret heart hoping so as it reaches out to tentatively welcome it. So thank you (you know who you are). This message and that which inspired it - none of it has changed, and if anything, stands truer than ever right now.

    I'd rather die than live down on my knees


    MOTIVATIONAL OF THE DAY

    Remember


    Sometimes we allow life to get in the way, infiltrate our mind with its fear, doubt, and worries, our circumstances looking bleak instead of an opportunity for change. Are you swimming or drowning in it? Are the things that once used to make you so happy now pulling you down into the depths of despair?

    When the things we love become the things that destroy us, what then? We need to REMEMBER - WHY we loved it, what it was that gave us so much joy and peace, smiles before the tears, laughter before the screaming. We need to REMEMBER, and in doing so, maybe make our burden a little lighter.

    Let your memories be sweet. Let yourself remember how much you loved. Live without floundering, without sinking, feeling like every day is a battle just to stay afloat. Because all the energy you’re exerting to try and simply STAY here is draining you of energy you could be using for something ELSE.

    Remember what it was like and THANK the past for HAPPENING, giving you such blessings, knowing that not all things are meant to last - and nothing ever will. Give yourself time to grieve, but allow yourself to move ON, so that you CAN “live again”.

    Quote for Reflection:




    TRAINING

    Run 3 miles

    Stretch 20 min

    Sleep: Solid. And deep. All of ~9 hours.

    Joints: Shoulders - both, and in under shoulder blades on my left side as well a sharp twinge on movement. Neck - rolling it, I can hear and feel the grinding of my bones.

    Quality of Training: Just an easy day today, since my body is not playing nice.

    Looks like your training is going well and you get to write articles and having more photoshoots...things are looking like they're going pretty well for you, except the aching joints.
