Well, I was super amped on Monday.
Now I’m not 😦
I’m tired, my face is breaking out, and I’m ULTRA sensitive…. wtf happened?! Aunt Flo, come and go, get your business over with. Yikes, I feel like a train wreck.
Monday’s workout didn’t quite go as planned. My new Victoria’s Secret Runway Front Close Sports Bra broke before I could even workout in it! Guess I need something better to support these tata’s. I’m gonna look into a different style, I still really love VS Sports Bras. Sooooo, I had to workout in my normal bra….. HOLY SHIT. So much jiggle and so much bounce, and so incredibly awkward!
After my plyo warm up I stuck with just lifting so I wouldn’t have to deal with the awkward bouncing. I finished my workout with spin bike intervals. It was a great quick workout, but the unexpected sports bra mishap required some serious patience and decision making. There was no way I was gonna skip my workout or go home, I was already at the gym.
Speaking of the gym. I really, really, REALLY dislike the time I go. You would be surprised, a 30 minute change in my work schedule makes a huge difference for gym traffic. So many more tool bags, no open squat rack, it’s hot, it’s crowded, and it’s a mess. I really don’t like the gym. I’m actually thinking about cancelling my membership and working out at home or Derek’s Vo2 Performance Center facility.
On top of my dislike for the gym, I’ve been suffering back pain. I don’t want to call it an ‘injury’ because that would imply more seriousness, but I think it may have reached that status. The pain will go away with rest, but will act up again with physical activity or a wrong twist. I absolutely can’t stand sitting still, I NEED to move often, sweat often, and be out of breathe often. I will have to rewrite my workouts accordingly, perhaps put the Zuzka videos on hold and do more static workouts. I love burpees, jumping, and twisting, but I have to take care of my body first.
I was so excited to receive my 18lb dumbbell set from Amazon yesterday! I tore open the packaging when I got home from work, I had plans to use them, but I quickly discovered they were broken into two pieces each inside the vinyl casing. What a freakin’ disappointment, hot damn! I also received my second Victoria’s Secret order of 3 bras, only to discover this morning they were all too small. I’ve been ordering 32C for as long as I can remember. Either my knockers got bigger or Victoria’s Secret started making bras with sizes running smaller.
Today I’ll be using the spin bike and doing a light workout with minimal strain on my back, then I will be returning all my new bras and getting resized. Yay!
I’m itching for the weekend…..
