    Exclamation Heidi <<Of all the things that are wrong with me...>>

    ...my attitude is the most important thing in need of major repair.

    Self imposed limits are a bitch.

    The hardest pill to swallow is that I did this to myself. I am a product of my own choices. #accountability #carry_you_own_water

    Physical injuries. Emotional terrorism. Zero control. Utter lack of all-around self care: = one long as# climb out of the rabbit hole.

    This journal is my way of building strength (in more ways than one), staying connected, and of course – free therapy.

    At least you know where you are, you know where you've been, and you know where you need to go. That's half the battle.

    Thank you sir. You are 100% correct. I cherish the little victories
    I read through your log. Pretty damn inspirational I must say.

    Thumbs up 23 Feb 2020

    More about me:

    I started seriously lifting and tracking macros again in December 2019. I wanted to make sure I committed to myself before I committed to logging. My track record for that has been dismal at best. Training routine is currently 3-4 days per week, hard and heavy as usual. Minimal cardio (because cardio is the devil) and 6 days lower calorie with 1 re-feed day. Moderate everything macros wise. Daily calorie intake ~1500 and ~1800 on re-feed days.

    Goals: Stop complaining
    End date: Never

    ------------------

    AM Weight:
    169.0

    Training:
    Legs

    Standing Calf
    50 x 10
    100 x 8
    130 x 8
    150 x failure

    Leg Press
    Sled x 12
    1pps x 8
    2pps x 6
    3pps x 3 sets of 4

    Single Leg Ham Curl
    x 3 sets of 6

    Lying Ham Curl
    x1 set to failure (holy hell these burn...)

    Macros:
    135/90/55 ~1395

    Cardio:
    60 minutes intensive vacuuming and steam cleaning the hardwood lol

    Scrawl:
    Today's session was great! My gym membership expires on Feb 27, and I don't plan to renew. They bumped the corporate membership fees by $100 per year. No. Thank. You. I'm investing in my home (basement dungeon) gym instead. I have new DBs, a new heavy duty stool/shoulder press bench and a new chin-up bar coming. Can't wait …

    Thank you. I like to try and keep it simple. My body type loves the compound, heavy stuffs

    25 Feb 2020

    My new weights and other goodies arrived today. Looking at a pretty solid home gym setup now. I can't wait to unbox everything and get it all set up. If the chin up bar does NOT fall off the wall, I'll consider that a win! ha
    Kick as@ today everyone. Heidi
