Part 1 of leg day...this was a high rep low weight day...felt a pump but really felt a good workout despite my low stamina.
.
1. Triset 4x15 >Banded Barbell Hip thrusts >Banded bodyweight hipthrusts >Banded hip abduction .
2. Super set 4x15
>Elevated db single leg glute bridge
.
>Elevated db bilateral glute bridge .
3. Quadruped Single Leg Extension on Smith machine 4x15
.
I focused on light weights, though I did increase the weight with hip thrusts but not to my PR...the burn was super painful but good...

Leg day, oh dear...will post videos soon...but lord was I dragging. I felt as though it had been forever since I did a leg workout, I felt weaker and more fatigued for sure...but I managed to push hard and also take it easy...
.
This is all a process, a way of life, it is not a sprint but it is a life long journey I am on and I'll take the good with the bad...I love going to the gym, seeing my friends, listening to my music and just decompress so it's my therapy and it heals me...I just need to remember that...happy time not beat me up time...

I am giving myself the biggest gift possible and that is rest.  This week I am fighting with myself to stay in bed and sleep a bit longer instead of my morning workouts.  My finger hurts BADLY,  I fear infection and I know its fractured, I lifted a 25lb weight trying to do upright rows yesterday and the pain was um, pretty bad...so instead of pushing myself, causing a bigger problem with this I am doing the responsible thing and taking it easy.  I admit,  I am fearful that I will shrink, get weak, get soft, gain fat, with less working out and that is my old eating disordered brain, but I will be more mindful of my intake as a result.  Although, working out twice, did ramp up my appetite like CRAZY and I don't feel as crazy ravishing hungry so that does help...it will be hard but I can do this...I need to o this...

Feeling off, not like myself continues... but I'm pushing through...life is about peaks and valleys and I'm kinda stuck in a valley...but I'm working hard in getting out...
.
Today's workout was fine, I definitely can't lift heavy b/c my finger will not let me...I couldn't even lift a 25lb dumbbell...crazy how much we need our ring finger...so basically I'm going to have to get creative...ugh...
.
But I look at all the wonderful things in my life,  with myself and I know I'm fine and I may not feel it right now...I will soon enough...๐Ÿ˜

Today is Monday and I believe my days are pretty full with patients...I hope that I start feeling more like myself soon...my sleep has been great which has made it very difficult to get up and going in the mornings...this morning I got up, dressed and went back to bed holding my little boy...nothing In the world feels better than snuggling up against his sweet warm little body...makes everything better...
.
My finger injury also has slowed me down a lot...its still bleeding and it hurts...typing is a nightmare,  tying shoes, hair, all the normal things are no fun, my Minions Bandiade is doing a crap job...today is a push day so I will see what I can do...and I'll be adding on cardio as well...I need it...need that dopamine.

Got some much needed sun...feel so good...we need that VitaminD so badly...I know since I've moved to the central coast from southern California I've definitely been affected by not as much sun...I try to get it as much as I can now because I clearly experience the difference...I feel relaxed, free, and happy...how wonderful of a feeling...

Took it super easy at the gym, treadmill, rolling and stretching...felt no regret for not lifting one weight either...good feeling actually.  I started this path last year only doing cardio, felt good but definitely did not like the result so cardio is good, only cardio, not good...both works fine for me...but I'm ready to get lifting again...but again I will have to be creative with my workouts since my right hand has a fractured finger tip most likely...Iots of high reps...but makes my workouts never boring that's for sure...haha
.
Usually Sundays are meal prep days but I went to the store with no plan so sheet pan chicken and veggies will suffice...I love to bake, cooking not as much...I cook to survive, I bake b/c I love it and like the gym its therapeutic for me...so I'm sure I'll bake something today...not sure yet...we will see...
.
Gorgeous outside, my boys are not home...I'll soak up so.e happy rays and relax for a bit...

Despite my inability to do much today because of my pulsating, bleeding finger...couldn't even kill a fly b/c the pain was um, memorable, I still managed to bake some bread and some muffi ns.  I made this #bananabread for Thomas because he wanted real banana bread with no raisins...so I made him the bread with oil, sugar, white flour, egg yolks...and all the stuff that typically does not go in my baked goods ..and I'm happy so say it was/is good...but it needs raisins...so I will make sure to listen to him more often when he says he likes or doesn't like something...well at least I'll make an effort... haha
.
Today was tough...I'm better now...tomorrow is a new day and I plan to enjoy it...I just hope there is no petting zoo involved...oh paaleeze none...๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ—๐ŸดI will work hard on taking breaks, slowing down, and loving the moment I'm in...#mindfulliving .

Feel like I was going crazy today...basically had no workout today, felt stir crazy all day, tried to take a nap but couldn't relax, my finger, yes, it hurts and is an issue, but basically really today is my first day off from a workout in a couple months...necessary clearly,  but I also had no energy in my tank to do much, even to still my mind...when I hurt my finger with that 85lb db it drained me...I was also extremely labile, emotional, tearful... held captive by this response, and most likely one that was bound to occur whether it was an injury or a rude person at the grocery store...I'm tired, exhausted but also desperately in need of a good workout...I need the outlet...I planned on taking tomorrow off but not anymore...hopefully I can give myself a cardio session at least...I know who I am, I know my needs and clearly it's not being homebound feeling exhausted from my thoughts with no end in site... at least I got some baking done which does help lot...

Started off as a leg day...finished off as a crap day...pinched my finger between the bench and 85 lb db...icing it now...tried to finish my workout after the initial almost passing out and throwing up feeling subsided, but I couldn't, my focus was gone... I figured if I kept going I'd hurt myself more...so now I'm taking a rest day or two...I can honestly say I am upset but I can handle the time away...hopefully...haha...the worst part about this finger injury is how it will affect my ability to type...I type about 100 WPM...come Monday I'm concerned how my documentation will occur... I refuse to dictate my notes... ugh...

So glad it's Friday...this week was just weird for me...I ended the day with a good pull workout...can't believe how strong I'm getting...so so cool...kinda like ending in the week with back and bis...legs tomorrow, I plan on having a good leg workout tomorrow... good way to start out my Saturday...and hopefully rest on Sunday or t least just LISS. .
I'm glad I allowed myself the rest I needed this week but also still pushed through my limited motivation...I knew it was not normal so I successfully talked my way through the game ...but dang it's hard... I'm human...and I'm definitely not perfect...I've been hard on myself this week but I've also been my own biggest cheerleader...now to push forward and take care of myself. 
Looking at 8 spotted bananas...I'll be busy this weekend...yay.

Pullday, well actually leg day...my split is all messed up this week..this week has been a cluster...I've been out of sorts for sure...but it's Friday and I can start over again on Monday.  I chose to sleep in this morning because of how I've been feeling, and designated this crap week as a teenie deload week...my body needs the rest...and my brain needs a vacation...it definitely is not working right at all...but I look forward to a good strong workout later, fueled by the brownie competition...which,  by the way, I am disappointed in my brownies but it's all fun with friends...๐Ÿช

Brownies...before I ended up in the hospital for gallstone pancreatitis and almost died...bad i know... I was baking brownies every night...it was a problem, I believed the brownies almost caused my demise...clearly I needed help to stop, though I'm not entirely on board with what the intervention was, but i did take it...haha...this is the first time since said hospitalization that I made brownies again...I'm rusty for sure...definitely not my best...but...I had fun eating the batter and making a mess...and they are ALL wrapped and packed away to hand off to peeps tomorrow...I just have to hide them from my work friends...that's a whole other issue...haha...@austyn_tokar

So today, I felt like crap...I felt off and struggled to find the motivation to workout but once I put on my clothes, shoes, I felt so much better...I knew I only had about 45-60 minutes and I got in a good push workout...still feeling it....
.
Currently I am in the midst of making brownies in competition with a friend at our gym...I know so funny..., I don't usually bake or cook for others in fear of it tasting bad...but at this point,  after all the freaking batter I ate, I really don't care, it's all fun, and I know it...and if they are mediocre,  I am fine...and question what our next baked goood will be... @austyn_tokar ...hmmm...
.
I have to say,  I go to the gym to workout, but we are all pretty tight there...I've made so many great friends...it's a wonderful way to start and end my work day...๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

No morning workout today, this has been an off week and it's clear I need to slow down...I added a 3rd workout to most my days the past few weeks and I think it all caught up to me...sooo...my body feels tired, not weak, just tired and fatigued...I realized that I've been going non stop since being discharged from the hospital and have no idea when my last rest day was...so not good...so I plan for Sunday...petting zoo...ugh...๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿด๐Ÿƒ . . . . #myfitlife  #myhealthylife  #myfitnessjourney  #fitmom  #fitmomsover40  #fitfluential  #workoutmotivation  #fitnessismytherapy  #morningworkouts  #nevermissaworkout  #girlsliftheavy  #womenwholift  #strongisbeautiful  #restdays  #strongbody  #bodybuilding  #bodyconfidence  #happybody 
I sadly learned that my friend had to cancel dinner which meant no pizza for me...I was devastated...I LOVE pizza...and pizza on leg days is the best day...so Instead it was chicken and mushrooms for dinner...I do love mushrooms though...
.
My second leg workout was mediocre, though I'm feeling it...I have a bit of a hard time when people tend to crowd me in my workouts and take up a bunch of equipment at the same time and do weird pull ups in my face and I'm fearful I will get kicked in the teeth...I say go for your crazy full body workout but maybe slow down and consider the rest of us...
.
We all go to the gym for a reason but there is a gym etiquette that should be reinforced...maybe it's just me...but it seems to be getting worse and my workouts are being affected...๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
Well now its Tim to put my little one to bed and how I wish icihkd go to bed with him...but I nee my popcorn and Ozark season 2...priorities....haha

I pushed 18 plates today at 8 reps x2 sets with a plan to make it to 20 plates next week...I wasn't planning on going heavy this morning but I knew I had a lot in my tank despite how I have been feeling.  I am so proud of my hard work and see the results I never thought possible...but I asked myself, not too long ago, "why is it so important to go heavier?"...and really it comes down to my ability to do it, how it makes me feel, and the overall results.  I struggle with barbell bilateral squats because of my back so I barbell split squat, and love those, adding weight to the bar, or the machine is a way I see/experience progress without having to step on a scale...and I'll run with that...I'm 42 years old, 5'10 inches tall...and I'm stronger and healthier now than I have ever been...I wish my 42 year old self could talk to my 20 and 30 year old self...oh the many changes I'd make...but then again, I may not be the person I am now...sliding doors always...๐Ÿ˜
