Worth It

dear santa

It’s been a crazy week of trying to put a bow on things in preparation for the Christmas/New Year’s break. I swear people lose their minds during the holidays. December, the AMRAP of months…

Wednesday: What are these magical glute ham raises?! Ice Ice and I had discussions on the proper set up and positioning of the GHD. By the third round I am sure I was doing it right. Mind you, they were challenging all three rounds (and why I only did 3 reps on the first set) Deadlift felt good; handstands, too. And homegirl helped me get in those lat pull downs with impeccable form.

Tuesday: I think Amanda put it best when she ran past me outside, “Are you doing two exercises at once?!”. The carries coupled with the sled pulls were something; especially in the rack carry position. Ya wanna hustle to get to the finish line because ya can’t breathe. But cha can’t ’cause you’re hauling a hundy behind ya. And you don’t wanna spill the scotch (no fish-tailing). The snatch grip BTN jerks felt good. Things to focus on in the future: looking straight ahead and not at the floor and keeping the bar path in alignment. 

I am sleeping like such crap and my face looks like a teenagers, so, while I am feeling good, something’s up. More scotch, less stress. (Or maybe just the latter.)

Got in 140g of protein today which is still 10g short of my daily goal. Forgot to weigh myself at the ‘nasium this evening, but will try to remember on Friday.
