QUOTE OF THE DAY: "This is a broken world. Nothing in it is fair...But it's when you stop expecting that it will be, that miraculously you are given the strength to survive, the grace to forgive, and enough love that you can carry on fighting. It's the knowledge that one day this fight will be over, and that everything will be put right, and that all the pain and sadness will be so utterly forgotten. It will be as if it never was." - Anna van Homrigh, The Star Locket (Natalie Jane Prior)
Sleep - Time and Quality: ~0400-1230 (waking at 0500), so ~8.5 hours sleep. Fell asleep on the couch well before I was planning on it, and quite a bit before I have been usually when get up as late as what I did yesterday...Deep sleep...Some dreaming...
Mental Alertness/Focus: NO migraine today! Thank God for small miracles.
Energy: Had more energy today. Didn't feel like I was the walking dead, which is so refreshing...
Motivation: "All stories must begin at some time and with someone." - Cordelia, This is all: The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn (Aiden Chambers)
Mood/Aggression: Fine. Calm. Normal - if I can ever be 'normal'...
Stress: Some stress. Less than yesterday...
Strength: Better in some areas and not in others.
Quality of Training: My skipping rope broke 48 seconds into HIIT Skip, so I had to improvise and ended up doing HIIT on the Gazelle. Was different, but ok...Resistance training was good. Right anterior delts hurting during BB Military Press, and pushing through for more afterwards...Post-weights gazelle was good...
Pump and Vascularity: Pump in hamstrings during HIIT and in anterior delts from fourth set of BB Military Presses...Vascularity normal...
Muscle Hardness/Density: Legs.
Body Composition and Look: So far from where I want to be. Feel like the last 10 days has set me back a bit, and that may be, but not going to let it continue.
Appetite: Only what I've had to today...Thirst back...
Overall Sense of Feeling: Starting to feel 'normal' again. Migraine gone. Wisdom teeth have gone back down. Sleeping still screwed up, but can manipulate that. Not crashing as bad as I was. Mental clarity and energy returning. This is good.
