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.

Fat Loss A2

No puking today! My shoulder has been bothering me lately. I have a bone spur in it and every since increasing the amount of weight I am lifting if has gotten progressively worse. Right now it is a dull ache until I turn it in a direction it doesn't like. Then, well...let's just say my kids are learning a few new "sentence enhancers"! (sorry for the Sponge Bob reference)

Today's workout:

Squats - I tried these with the barbell today. I can't keep good form with the barbell in front of my body and I can't lift the barbell up over my head to get it on my back without hurting my shoulder. I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of all weight and working on totally full squats and working my way up to jump squats. I am trying to limit the stress on my shoulder since it has been bothering me.
3X15 @ 48lbs

Bent Row - This does not hurt my shoulder thankfully.
3X15 @ 48lbs

Supine Hip Extension - I can't keep my feet perpendicular to the ball. Hopefully someone will be able to help me figure out where my imbalance is so I can address it.

DB push press - I really like this exercise and so far I can feel it in my shoulder but it doesn't hurt.
3X15 @ 12e

Static Lunge - Have I ever mentioned that these things are evil? No? Then let me go on record right now. THESE THINGS ARE EVIL AND I HATE THEM!
2X10 w/ BW

Swiss Ball Crunch

Lying Leg Raise - I have added these to help strengthen my hip flexors. Right now I can only do 5 reps. :(

I am going to try to get out today and do some HIIT. I was supposed to do it yesterday but it didn't happen. I can not do it right after I lift. Well not without passing out, and I simply do not trust my children enough to risk it! LOL
