The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

NRoL4W Stage 1 Workout B3

Today did not have a good start. I started having an asthma attack at around 3 am so I got NO sleep. I was finally able to sleep at about 6 and the boys let me sleep until 10am. (It is so nice having self sufficient children. And not having to get up to take them to school helps too!)

I started my day with a banana and a protein bar. Not exactly a breakfast of champions but considering all I wanted to do was sit on the sofa and eat nothing it could have been worse!

I decided I was in no mood to workout since I seem to have the cough of a 4 pack a day smoker but as I was getting dressed I had an attack of guilt and put workout clothes on instead. I am really glad I did. My workout was the only time so far today I could actually breathe. Go figure!

So here is what I did. Today was a good day!

Deadlift 1X12 @ 68lbs, 1X12 @ 78lbs (OMG does that actually say 78lbs!!! - I actually just had to walk back over tot he barbell and recount the weights. That ACTUALLY says 78lbs. I never would have believed a month ago I would be able to left 78lbs.)

Shoulder Press 1X12 @ 12lbs, 1X10 @ 12lbs (My shoulders have always been a weak spot for me due to various injuries. I wonder if I will ever have good strength in them??)

Pullover 2X12@ 17lbs (I think I have finally figured out how to keep my shoulder from locking up on this one so I will actually be able to increase my weight a bit. )

Lunge 1X12 w/ BW, 1X10 w/ BW (Have I mentioned previously how much I hate lunges?? Just in case, let me reiterate... LUNGES . F*ING . SUCK!)

Swiss Ball Crunch 2X12 w/ 5lbs over head

Now that I am done my cough is back but my lungs are open enough now that my inhaler might actually help now!

Todays Food Log:

Breakfast - Banana and Protein Bar (20g)

PWO - Spoy Protein powder (25g) with blueberries (1g) and soy milk (6g)

Lunch - Tuna (45.5g), 2 slices whole wheat bread (6g)

Dinner - Ramen Noodles, turnip root and tropical fruit salad.

My "asthma attack" is not an asthma attack. I officially have the plague! LOL I statred running a fever after lunch and it got progressively worse from then on. Which explains the crappy dinner I had.

Spark People says I macros were 242g carb (55%), 24g fat (17%), 124g protein (28%). Not too bad considering. My calories were only 1700 though.
