Quickie

No not that kind of quickie. Get your mind out of the gutter πŸ˜‰ Or maybe I should get mine out of their first. ANYWHO.

This morning I did a WIFL. It’s kind of like a MILF, except not at all. It stands for Whatever I Feel Like. I woke up this morning to screaming hamstrings. They are STILL extremely sore even after 3 days, lots of glutamine, and 11 hours of sleep last night. So instead of doing chest today, which I didn’t feel like doing, I did a WILF. I did some bicep curls with 20 lbers, lots of abs, some more biceps, and some Complex 1’s. This is something I used to do at my old gym. You take the barbell(45 lbs) and do: 8 straight leg dead lifts, 8 bent over rows, 8 power cleans(instead of starting from the floor, it is just the “catch” portion, so starting at the hips and rotating over), 8 push presses, 8 squats, and 8 good mornings. Did about 3 sets of those. It was honestly a REALLY fun workout. I love weight lifting and going in there and just doing WIFL!

I challenge you all to do a WIFL! Let me know how it goes πŸ™‚ It is good to have a plan, but sometimes it is good to just lift your heart out πŸ™‚ I’m a dork, I know this. πŸ™‚

I did have something else to say, but I totally can’t remember now. I hate when that happens! Anyways, i definitely fell asleep at 7:30pm last night…woke up briefly to the LOUD thunder and wind(love me some monsoons!) at around 3am, but fell right back asleep and woke up at 6:30am. My body wanted SLEEP.

Oh I remember what I wanted to say. My new mantra. I think it was Michelle, but i’m not sure who posted it on their blog (sorry) But now, whenever I am struggling mentally(which has been happening lately) I repeat this in my head. “Two choices: give up, or don’t give up.” I always choose the latter. This makes it very easy because i don’t have any other factors involved. It’s either DO IT or DON’T. I am choosing to NOT GIVE UP πŸ™‚

Have a good day kiddos!
