Day 5 and I’m Still Alive

Listen y’all, I almost fell asleep and said, oh no, you have to post first. So, here I am giving an update as to how day 5’s workout went. The point is that it went, lol. I really enjoy the upper body workouts because it’s the part I want to see change the most. Tonight I increased my weights, and it was harder to lift, but I got it done. The entire 6-week challenge I did just before this one, I never changed the number of pounds I was lifting. I just kind of stuck with what I had. Today, I challenged myself to do a little more, and even though it was a bit harder, it didn’t feel like I was straining or ripping anything. If you don’t ever challenge yourself to do a little more, you’ll become complacent with what is easy and comfortable. But, remember growth doesn’t come through what is easy. You can’t flex your muscles when it’s easy. You gotta be willing to push the envelope a little. Go beyond the normal and reach the impossible. These things can apply to many aspects of our lives, and you can use them, but definitely remember them for your workouts. I’m going to try the yoga stretch exercises she gave us for the weekends. These are intended to promote healing from soreness and muscle fatigue. I can use a little of that right now. Alright, day 5, and we’re still alive clive. Onward and upward to week #2.

Until Next Time,
