Unfortunately I seem to have come to a road block.
Yeah, this might ruin your day.
Monday, my squat workout was so pathetic that I can’t even think of anything to write about it. And to add insult to injury, my legs are sore as H E double hockey sticks when I barely even lifted anything. Then today I tried to do a bench workout that resulted in another giantor crash and burn. GGGRRRRRR.
I’m not sure if it’s my mental state (a pathetic lack of testosterone driven psychedness) or my green monster diet. Maybe dieting is only good for leisurely activities, like this chick.
She obviously took the green faces diet a bit too literally.
So tonight, I give up. I can’t figure this out. I’m working so hard and getting myself nowhere….well backwards if anything. It’s enough to make me crazy. I realize everyone has bad days in the gym now and then, but seriously. This is ridiculous.
I can’t fight this cheesy three-legged stool analogy that keeps coming to mind. It’s like my status relies on three things- my appearance/weight; strength; and confidence. For some reason one of those things is always out of whack.
So this is the only picture of a three-legged stool I could find ; )
So my solution? Tonight, it was mexican food and a Blizzard (they are now making “Mini” blizzards, love it). I don’t feel much better, but it’s something. I’ve never been much for carb loading before a workout, but apparently that’s my next step. It better help or I’m going to have to open a vein or two.
On a side note, my fabulous trainer has recently started including chauffeur service in my training package. Gotta love front door service!!
