have those days where you know for a fact you completed everything but you are absolutely stressing out over NOTHING? That’s me on a typical day, and that was definitely me yesterday. After being called off of work I laid in my bed all day at my laptop working on assignments, projects, research, my portfolio, my presentation, etc. I finished everything that “had” to be done but for some reason I could not get rid of that super anxious/stress vibe! I think it’s because it’s that girly time of the month and I’m at a lack of chocolate My roommate Christyna’s mom bought me swiss chocolate and all I want to do is dive into that ziplock bag of them!!! And this morning all I wanted to do was snoooooze! I wasn’t even tired, but I had to lay in my bed and talk to myself; stating how I needed to get up and kill my workout so I didn’t have to do it later. And killed it is exactly what I did:
Back and Tris/30 minutes of cardio. Coach wants me to do back bis AND tris, but combining all of those in a short 1.5 hour period was not happening this AM.
Workout for back and tris this AM:
- medium grip lat pull down superset w/ cable rows
- wide grip lat pull downs superset w/ tricep pulls (rope attachment)
- the iso chest/back machine superset with tricep pulldowns (bar attachment)
- single arm iso back superset with dips
- skullcrushers superset with barbell tricep curls
- rope attachment face pulls superset with seated rows
- 30 minutes run/walk cardiooooo!
In regards to diet, I’ve been fairly good for how much of a carb queen I am Counting down the weeks until I can eat my iHop cinnastack pancakes!
After freaking out and mentally stressing all day, I headed over to the IUP campus to present on eating disorders. Can’t wait until next week when I can do it again. Photographers from The Penn (the school paper) showed up, so that was a nice surprise. Afterwards I headed over to Shawn’s house because I seriously needed a venting session. Sometimes talking is the best medicine. Although I’ve spent most of my life using isolation as my source of “stress relief”, I find that surrounding myself with a person or even a few people can really be beneficial.
also it probably helped that Shawn bought cinnamon bun oreos yesterday and I totally stole half of one, no shame there though!! (Sorry coach!!)
On that note of spending time with people, after I come back from work today, Lacey (figure competitor) and I have a nice coffee date planned. Girl time = always appreciated!! Especially from those who know exactly what you are going through.
Off to work!!
