Today was JE Day 24 Chest and Triceps. I must remember to warm up. I don't know why I think I am invincible and warming up is not necessary. I started off with a bang and did fine with my push ups. I was pretty dang proud of myself doing them on my toes and all but when I went to do the incline DB Flys I felt some pain. Not like a soreness but like I had ripped something. I did not feel it before this, I did not feel the muscle rip as I was exercising but in my haste to completed my WO I must have inadvertently ripped my minor pec muscle on the right side. Needless to say the rest of my chest WO did not go as planned.
When I got to the triceps my left back muscle, not sure which one, but it is a minor one, started screaming at me to, Just on the tricep kickbacks.GRRRH! I had to go from doing 20 lbs on the right side to 6 lbs on the left. So Very Fustrated!
I am glad this week is about over.
Oh yeah, another note to self. Do not measure AFTER you workout. You will not see the results you are looking for due to muscle swelling from the WO. Duh!
So after a disappointing WO today and a fail on the measuring I can only look up from hear.
Nutrition wise I think I am on track. Must try to avoid the candy dish after lunch. This seems to be my biggest weakness right now. I always crave chocolate after lunch. I think it has something to do with stress but the only thing available is the candy bowl. I need to stay away from that thing!
I have had a couple of recent friend adds. Thanks guys! CANOOCHIE and MCKERI. Can't wait to see your results as we progress through this challenge.
Anyone who is thinking about doing this program, it is a challenge but in a good way. It sure does mix things up and I am really liking the definition in my arms right now. I can't wait to start Phase 2 so the fat can start melting off my trouble areas and I can see the muscle definition in my legs.
Keep Sparking and LiveFit!
