New week. New me!

I went back to the gym this morning to do a repeat of last Thursday’s workout.  I did tweak it a little, mostly by accident.  I forgot to do the lateral planks in between my dead lifts and I  miscounted the amount on my barbell so I did one set at 110 lbs and only two at 135 lbs.  Everything still felt rather challenging.  Maybe a tad bit easier because I knew what to expect but I wouldn’t call any of it easy!  Now I have one week down and on Wednesday I will get a new set to focus on.  My trainer messaged me yesterday to ask how I was doing.  I told him I felt great and he said that was great to get the foundation laid down and that this week we would being the next step.

I’m actually really enjoying spending this kind of time in the gym.  I feel mentally and physically challenged and nothing has been “hurting”.  I am going to the chiropractor today to just get a check up.  It’s been a long time since I have been able to go without having something specific to complain about.  It’s just really nice to feel this good!
