"Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it." ~ Jim Butcher

 

"They live lives that don't matter, that touch no one and change nothing. For better or worse, you and I stared evil in the eye and didn't flinch. We raised our swords and went to war, and even if we didn't win we kicked some ass along the way. We made a difference, and that's all any man can ask." ~ Simon Green

Thanks! I needed that.  

 

I'll try to get some exercise tomorrow even if it's only half of what I could normally do.  :)

 

Don't quit on me! I have asthma with seasonal allergies. I don't know how severe yours is, but if you can puff on an inhaler and get back in the game YOU DO IT!!

 

I know it's hard. I know it hurts, but 30-45 minutes of hard work to stave off a lifetime of aches, pains, and disease is a trade I will make ANY DAY. You've got this! You can do it.

 

You were made to go harder and longer than you even think you're capable. Just. Don't. Quit!

 

 

... at least, these are the things I told myself to get out the door tonight. I'm in your corner and I'm refusing to throw in the towel for you, Turtle. You can get knocked down, but you'd better come up swinging!

Not yet fully recovered.  I still cough every now and then due to the tickling sensation in my throat.

 

Thanks for asking.  :)

 

Hope you're feeling better this morning?

Soooo, after a frustrating bout with asthma I was finally able to get out of bed and resume my RF Recruit mission to get back in shape.  No increase in reps yet but I managed to perform the same set as my last workout.

 

Finished the job with a lot of sweat and a little bit of wheezing here and there.  But who cares ... I'M BAAAAAACK!  :)

And we're glad to welcome to you back from your Boss Battle with the evil Asthma!  Now you you can carry on with your original mission and get back to crushing those workouts again.

I love how you and chord509 interact.

 

You got over that asthma bout, now it's time to go back to kicking ass. Don't worry about your progress, the results aren't always visible on the scale, but often elsehwere, be it mentally, in the energy levels, or body measurements. 

 

"Bon courage" as we in French. I love how the two expressions go hand in hand. "Bon appetit" for food and to fuel your body, and "bon courage" to fuel your mind.

Chord509 has been an inspiration.  If he can overcome his Big Boss Big Toe then I have no reason not to overcome Big Boss Asthma.  :D

 

I do hope I could see some visual improvement soon!

Woke up at 5am to take my meds, changed clothes, carried my bike down to the street and hit the road before my brain could react.  Managed to ride 12.6 km this morning.   :)

Strength training day!  Same strategy: got up for meds, did some warmups and started my first set for pushups before my brain could react.

 

Today's workout:

 

Push ups: 10, 9, 9

Split Squats: 10, 9, 9

Assisted Pull ups: 6, 6, 5

Supermans: 12, 12, 11

 

How different are split squats and lunges?  I HATE lunges just like everyone else and split squats seem more tolerable than the former.

So I saw the scale peeking from its dark corner and remembered that it's been a week since I last visited it. What the hell, might as well get the most of it right? Took it out to the brighter side of the room and stood up.

 

Current weight: 194.  I think I just stared at the damn thing for half a minute.  Did I just lose 3 pounds?

 

I got off, walked away and checked if there was a leprechaun (or my wife) hiding somewhere and playing tricks on me.  Went back on the scale.

 

194

 

OMG.  The routine is working!

 

MOTIVATION UPGRAAAAAAAAADE!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU WHO NEVER STOP TO MOTIVATE ME TO GO ON!
