THAT. RIGHT THERE.
I had a little talk with myself last week after I admitted I was feeling my body shut down. I was tired, cranky, and honestly sick to freaking death of this stupid weight loss plateau. I had to take a look at my workouts and diet and figure out what I needed to do in order to feel strong again. After reviewing my food journal I saw I average about 4-5 hours of sleep a day. That is apparently not enough zzzz's. So, are you ready? Monday was my farewell to the 4:00 a.m. Meathead Crew. Tonight is the night I suck it up and do my squats and deadlifts at the time I would normally head to the gym, i.e. the time the rest of the free world also goes to the gym.
See, 4:00 a.m. is a crutch for me. I went then to lift because it's most comfortable. These big weights are still so new and intimidating. I don't like learning new things in public. I want privacy as I figure stuff out and make my mistakes. But lack of sleep is killing me. So tonight I am going to walk purposefully into the super crowded free weight section and possibly have to wait for a squat rack to open up and lift what I need to lift without freaking out
Wish me luck. And for no pig's blood. Duuuuuude.
