So today started early as I had a gym session with Chris at 9am. It was a crazy session, but I really enjoyed it. He’s definitely pushing me more and more each time, and I never would have thought I’d be able to do even half of the exercises he sets, but I seem to be doing OK.
Today’s exercises were:
Bench Press – 6 x 3 reps at 20kg
Pulldowns – 6 x 5 reps at 57.5kg
Chest Press – 4 x 8 reps at 6kg
Seated Row – 4 x 8 reps at 35kg
5 x 85kg
5 x 90kg
5 x 100kg
5 x 110kg
5 x 115kg
5 x 135kg
Sled Pull (forwards and Backwards)
2 x 2 Lengths pulling 90kg
*Can I just say, 90KG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m actually impressed with myself!
Med Ball (5kg) Slam and Burpee Ladder (10 slams, 1 burpee, 9 slams, 2 burpees etc.)
Boxing on the bag –
20seconds of boxing with 10seconds rest x 5 sets
So after that I felt tired but good. In fact I’ve started to feel a real buzz after the sessions, which is a little bit addictive.
Food today: egg white omelette for breakfast, couple of squares of 85% chocolate before and after the gym, gluten free sausages and poached eggs for (early) lunch, sweet potato, corn and venison burger for dinner (didn’t finish the burger though as felt iffy)
I went shopping this afternoon with a friend to find something to wear for an event next week. It was so good trying clothes on and finding they were too big, but the best bit was buying a pair of trousers in a smaller size! They are a little bit tight, but I was so pleased that I got them on and fastened them up. It was a really great feeling.
You would think then that I would be in a pretty happy mood. Wrong! The evil hormones (or what I can only assume are the evil hormones) are back, and with a vengeance. I think I’ve said it before, but it scares me how quickly it hits. This evening it was literally within minutes. I started to feel sick and anxious out of nowhere. I find it really difficult to describe it properly. It’s worse today as nothing happened to set it off, so it just caught me totally off guard. As I struggle to put it into words, I’m going to leave it there for today and hope things are better tomorrow.
