Workout Update

I've been on and off exhausted since that time in...January?  That one was because I was coming down with a cold and fighting it.  The cold sores all in my mouth should have been a give-away, problem is, I don't just get body tired, I get brain tired too.  Shit doesn't occur to me.

Last Monday, my lifts were shit so I said, "Self?  When is the last time you took time off to recoup?" Um...none.  No time off.  Been going since January like a MACHINE!  ARGH!  I am STRONG!


So I took last week off. 

I'm still tired all the time but again, I was fighting constant cold sores inside my mouth and even though I could push thru the workout, I bailed.

Right now, 3pm, my morning workout.  Yeah, still exhausted all the time.  Probably not cancer again.  Must be just...laziness?  I dunno.  Anyway, I went up on my overhead press!  I'm lifting 25 pounds (dumbbells, not barbell) now.  Lat pulldowns- 80lbs.  Squats and deadlifts are out for now.  Weather change is making my knee ache.  I can't even get off the toilet without holding on to the wall and leaning to one side.  It'll come back once the barometer changes then I can lift again.  Why a joint encased in juice and sealed in flesh can feel the weather, I have no idea, but here it is.
