I Hate Barbell Shrugs!

Oh my goodness my shoulders are so sore.

One of my workouts today was barbell shoulder shrugs, which seems easy enough but apparently my recommended starting weight was a little too high because after my first set my shoulders starting tightening and cramping really bad. Like it was hard to move my head bad. Fortunately the Caine Halter YMCA has an amazing staff. I kinda waddled over to one of the trainers and said “so I did some barbell shrugs and now I’m clenching and cramping really bad….help.”

Silly enough, I forgot to grab her name, but she was awesome. She worked with me on some stretches and then came over and helped me with my next set. Now I have a better starting weight. I love the staff at the Y.

Other than that my workout went pretty smoothly. Did some cycling today for my cardio/warm-up, which means tomorrow I will probably do the treadmill, please pray for me I absolutely hate jogging/running in any form.

So yesterday I got new shoes for working out, my old ones were kinda falling apart. I had to go on my lunch break so instead of my normal lunch I had to pick something up. I was at the mall so there was a lot of temptation, pizza, mango chicken, chick-fil-a…oy i wanted it a lot. But I went to Panera and got their Thai Chicken Wonton Broth Bowl and it was soooo delicious! I was worried about getting bread with it though, sine they give a baguette with all their soup, so i requested they leave it out and they substituted an apple for me at no charge =)

Also, yesterday I got a Happy Planner Fitness Edition!

I’m using it, along with some apps, to track all my workouts, food, progress, and as a motivational tool!

Ok, I think that’s enough for today. Overall feeling pretty good. I think my only adjustment to my plan will be more vegetable so I’m thinking i’ll make celery and carrots a daily snack.

God’s got me and I got this!
