I wrote about fat shaming myself not too long ago. I figured I would update ya’ll.
I have continued to lose scale weight, which is good. I have also continued to build strength and muscle, which is also good. I still don’t like chicken, but it’s a means to an end. I have also discovered that if I eat too much sriracha seasoning, I will pay for it.
Today’s workout was difficult for me. It was chest day. On chest day, I do 3 different types of bench press. I increased my weight on the flat bench, which is my first lift, so that was good. My second life, the incline press….not so good. I kept failing at pushing the weight I had prescribed myself. I tried 2 different times to push that weight, but it just wouldn’t budge. Boy, did that ever tick me off. Well, for the next couple sets of that lift, I just figured, “Well, I increased my other weight, so maybe I’m just fatigued”. But then, by the time I got to my third lift, the decline press, I was super mad at myself. And given the week I have had, I was angry in general. So I used that to push harder for my last lift. I managed to increase that weight and probably could have pushed more. Wow, is that a great way to use your anger. Sometimes, you just have to find whatever motivation you can to dig deep and get it done. And that’s what I did. I channeled my anger into something positive.
