I am hurting today! We did deficit deadlifts yesterday and oh-em-gee I am feeling it today! I see it has been awhile since I last posted. Life has gotten busy. And also kind of I just haven’t felt like it. I am feeling a little social media overwhelmed lately. I am wondering if I am becoming too caught up in it. I find myself comparing… comparing other’s happiness to mine, their successes, body types etc. It doesn’t matter what other people are doing… why am I letting it bother me? I am debating taking a little social media break but haven’t hit the breaking point yet.
I took a break from here for a bit, but today felt like checking in. So here’s what’s been up. There was some action on the farm last week, they had a big sale that was A LOT of work for J. He did an amazing job and worked soooo hard. While I felt like I was single for a week, which wasn’t so fun, he did so amazing and it was fun to see it all come together. I took the day off to help out and I am so glad I was a part of it.
I made it to the gym regularly scheduled but was super lazy with my food choices. I am feeling pretty gross and am noticing my poor nutrition choices in the gym and how I feel every day. I need to make some changes. I checked in today with a weigh in and did the body fat reading and I am not pleased with the result. I have really gotten off track. I am not going to be hard on myself though. It’s all part of the comparison thing I am talking about. I have deleted a bunch of fitness accounts I follow on Instagram because I feel like it’s affecting my self esteem a little bit. I need to do what works for me and basically just do me.
Despite my burning hamstrings and a killer workout yesterday, I got up bright and early today to hit the gym for 8 am. There was a Strongman competition at my gym today so the workout was earlier than usual. It was a big turnout so we had team workouts and it was a lot of fun. So many of us that did yesterday’s class mentioned sore hamstrings. It was kind of funny. After the workout I got changed and we set up for the event. A couple of us stayed and volunteered for the day. I worked at the food area and ran the cash for the BBQ. All proceeds went to Wounded Warriors Canada and they raised $500 which is pretty awesome for a small event. I was so happy to spend the day with some of my favourite people hanging out in the sun raising money for an amazing charity. I smell like BBQ now!
That’s what’s been up with me… we still have more weekend to enjoy which is pretty great. I will leave you with this adorable picture of my niece with bedhead because she’s so cute.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and soaking in all the moments. xoxox
