Damn, it feels really good to be writing one of these again. Where have I been? I’m sure the answer to that question will be dealt with in a proper entry. Until then, suffice it to say that I’m trying to get back in the gym.

I went on my own, no trainer, and manged to power through a damn fine total body workout. I wrote down things I’d like to do and before I knew it, an hour went by. Nice! I also surprised myself with the weights I could handle (though I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow).

I’ve been trying to run on the weekends and two of my best friends and I get together every Wednesday to do sprints. My wife and I will start yoga and dancing (and maybe even self defense classes).

Workout Summary: 8.24.17

I’ve been a bit out of commission lately; I got a bit injured on my Friday workout. Plus, with the eclipse and some rescheduling… I haven’t worked out in a bit.

Had a leg day today. It was alright except I mostly tried to take it easy so I didn’t mess myself up. I went way up in leg press, though, which is great!

Something’s up with my pull days. I don’t seem to be hitting as hard, especially when I’ve moved up with everything else this strength session. I think it has to do with beginning with pull-ups. They wear me out so much that I don’t see much improvement in anything else.

At any rate, it was a pretty good Saturday workout, just not as momentous as I’d hoped.

Wow, this whole concentration thing is really paying off! I’ve been kind of dreading Walk Funny Day since I decided to be more present mentally because (like most people) I fucking hate leg day. But today was amazing! Like the other days, I’ve gone way up in everything and my attitude has been so much more positive!

Workout Summary: 8.7.17

Since my last workout, I’ve been thinking about motivation and dedication. I realized that I’m not really as focused as I should be at the gym. After working out for a year, I think I’m letting my attention slip and getting distracted. Not pushing myself much.

I’ve decided to focus more and really work hard. After all, I really want to change (and I pay a lot of money to train). Why not be all in?

That being said, I had an amazing push day today! Trainer Lana started me on the strength cycle, which means bigger weights and lower reps. I went up in weight in everything; a lot of weight, too.
