I love working out with slam balls! However, you can see my OCD in action here especially at the end, when I wouldn’t stop slamming the ball until it felt “right,” whatever that means to my body in the moment. Sometimes when I’m doing exercises like this it’s really hard to stop pushing, not that pushing is bad, but when your OCD is saying “do one more, do ten more, that was an odd number so you have to even it out, just do it one more time because you’re going to fee weird if you don’t,” then is when I need to resist the compulsion and delay the response to try to keep from having to repeat an action. Usually it helps to just move on to something else.
Boy does it get lonely.
Last night's interval session was quite lonely. It was punctuated by all the lighting in the entire facility behind me shutting down because it's all on proximity sensors.
and it does get lonely. Last night was Friday night everybody was out with their friends, having a good time, socializing. in front of me on the treadmill is the main entrance to the building. it's a glass storefront so I can see the main Street, the parking lot of the building in front of me all the cars, people going places... And I was just there on the treadmill watching, getting my miles in.
Life makes it tough sometimes, the desire for companionship, balancing wants and needs, (no one wants to spend Friday night solo grinding out intervals, but that's when I had the time). At the end of the session however, I know I accomplished something that is going to give me more satisfaction then hanging out on a Friday night with people... Because when I want to stand on a Podium choices like this will be the deciding factor or the area to blame.

We decided to work out in the snow storm lol.
If you have trouble with activating your back for pull ups or want to work on one arm pull ups, use a pull up assistant machine with do slow negatives with one arm and pull up with both arms and repeat.
THE STACHE IS BACK! 👨🏽
Shoutout to my trainer @mariashi_b
for getting me lean and strong 💪🏽
Day 33 of #bodyspartan #unleashed
program was #legday
with a focus on hamstrings.
I had a great leg day session yesterday and I am paying the price for it today. I don’t recall if you can see it in the video, but I had to use a blue piece of foam on the lying hamstring machine. I have a small cyst on my chest and I was having a hard time laying on the bench without discomfort. I found a workaround and we still made it happen. I need to get it surgically removed, but my travels have delayed this from happening. Anyways, I will continue to work around or through obstacles as they arise. Let’s do this...Whatever this may be for you, you can work around it or through it!!!! Now, let’s go!
Never ask for a day ahead of where you are right now.
Feeling more confident everyday. No I don’t have the body I want but I am on the way. I lost the weight now I just want to tone up. .
I don’t care what anyone else thinks, I know I’ve made progress and I’m feeling great! It’s not for anyone but myself. .
You don’t have to work on yourself for anyone else but you! If you’re unhappy with your weight or just something in your life decide to make that change because you want to, not because someone told you to! It’s your life, live it as best as you can. .
First step for me- Body
Second step- Business
Third step- Moving
Forth- Loving life

Today was a killer morning session. I have 3 weeks till my first double race weekend and my first Super since early 2017. 1 years and 2 months since I've trained like today due to my recovery. I'm still not 100% and know I never truly will be but I will make the most of what I can. I put as much as I could in my pack just to give me weight while I trained. Couldn't be happier with the results! Finished the entire session in sub 3hrs! Full workout below!
Also shout out to to @nuunhydration
