a lifter’s diary… Volume 5

Today was Legs/Arms/Abs. Typical Monday workout… For specifics of the workout go to Volume 1. Energy levels were pretty good. Didn’t eat the cleanest breakfast, but I did have a banana about 45 minutes before I trained. I got done around the 2 hour mark. Pretty good. Back was acting up, but finished strong. Going to the Chiropractor tomorrow to get that checked out. Now my bad molars are acting up. I swear if it isn’t one thing it is another thing. I am in a constant state of pain: Physical, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, even at times. Its getting old. 

I know I blog a lot. I know that most don’t read. I realized a while back I do these things for me. I will Read them over and over and then try to gain some kind of objective take on it. Usually works pretty good. I know what I need to do. I know it won’t be what I want to do, but I NEED to do it. So many road blocks in the way. When I think of the struggle. I am just like 5 years old again. Watching the 1st Conan movie, thinking, for 20 years Conan did nothing, but turn that FK’n wheel. No nothing, other than eat, sleep, turn that FK’n wheel. That is kind of where I need to go. Just keep pressing on. No Distractions. DOOOooo… 

As far as my body goes. I feel like I look pretty good. Modest gains at best till I can get my health clearly regulated. I just need to get back to work so I can start earning and saving again. It should never be this hard for someone with my strong resume to find a steady job. Chest/Shoulders tomorrow… If I feel like I have something to say about my training tomorrow I will post another Volume. Until then… Do Work… “Do or do not, there is no try…” 

“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”  ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
