When in doubt, squat it out!!
I have had a lot on my plate this past couple of weeks. Been super stressed out and exhausted. Today i was able to channel that energy into my workout. Got a new PR on squats. Had sets of 8 today. Was able to work up to 335lbs for my top set. Keeps getting easier an easier. Practice makes perfect, even though I'm far from perfect ima work my ass off and try my best every time. Shout out to @undergroundstrength_kavan for making me better 💪🏽💪🏽👊🏽👊🏽💯💯 #undergroundsalem#undergroundstrength#squats#180#pr#practice#uspa#powerlifting#ironsharpensiron#dadbod#alphastarr#alpha @teamalphastarr
Well, it's #nationalmoonday and I wanted to post something a little more fun. But, I decided to do a lil' something with #LinkinPark lyrics after learning of #chester 's death 😔 Growing up, I was a big Linkin Park fan and even remember choosing the lyrics of "In The End" to analyze/break down in my AP English class. Annnnd, one of my fondest karaoke memories was many, many years ago when my little brother and cousin NAILED "In The End." 🎤 (remember? @mikegtoledo @ryant2421) so, here's to Linkin Park AND National Moon Day! 🌜🌑
#realtalk : I don't always love #running . I don't always feel #fabulous . Most days I feel like I hope I #survive . Some days I def know it's by a hair. Yesterday, I went home from work "early" (on time) & I cancelled my plans. My cluster headache was building for days & i was sick. I went to bed. Today, I didn't have headache but had the "headache hangover." My face was still sagging on one side (you can see it most clearly in my eye) from the pain. So I ran anyway. I ran to show myself I could. I ran for people who don't have the luxury of running at all. I ran cuz I knew this was temporary but the work I put into it would steel my resolve & make me better. Even if I didn't feel better. Even when I had to slow down for fear of vomiting. Even when it did feel like my head would split-I almost hoped it would so a younger, stronger, healthier version of myself would spring forth. But she didn't. So I trudged on anyway. Sometimes, victory isn't sexy or cool. Sometimes, it just means you were the last person to give up. 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️
