Been a long three days, guys.
I’ve worked 12 hours the last three days, three p.m. to three a.m. Get home around 3 in the morning and then crash.
I didn’t sign up for it, but I’m probably working twelve hours again today.
My work is very mentally exhausting and I definitely enjoy sleeping. I guess what I’m getting at is that I had a workout scheduled today but I didn’t wake up early enough to go to the gym before work so I’m pretending that I won’t have to stay tonight and will go at 11 when I am supposed to get off.
I could give any number of excuses for not going to the gym. The dog threw up in the bed – true. My arm is sore and I don’t want to injure it – true. I need some down time before going back to work for eight (probably twelve) hours – true. I’m angry at forced overtime at work – true.
I WANT to go to the gym today so I’m going to pack my gym bag and HOPEFULLY get to go at 11. If not, I’m definitely going tomorrow. We’ll see.
A little frustrated that I don’t have a regular schedule that I can trust in. Going to work and getting surprised with four hours of OT is really, really a bummer. I don’t know how else to put it.
Otherwise, things are going well I guess. Lifted 125 for my deadlift yesterday which was a new high. I realize I’m a weakling still. But 125 is better than the 90 from a few weeks ago! I’ve also mostly caught up with my regular schedule after being gone for several days. Today will completely catch me up if I don’t have to stay after work.
I’m going climbing with my neighbor on Saturday so that will be exciting. I’ve really gotten into indoor sport climbing recently because facing my fear of trusting someone else to not let me fall and going as high as I possibly can is very energizing. My heart is speeding up just thinking about it. lol
I’m not quitting. I’m not stopping. I love seeing the definition I’m gaining in my arms and legs. I love the feeling of getting enough protein into my diet to maintain these new muscles. I love the rush of lifting something heavier than I’ve ever lifted and I love the athletic benefits that I’m feeling. Life is always going to try to get in the way and I just need to figure out a way around it.
I got this.
