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!

Huh.

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.

You need to listen to your body. it is not laziness, it is the need to repair. There is a reason we sleep every night, our bodies can not take constant go go go, they need to rest.

The reason your body can feel the weather is the drop in air pressure. I have a scar on my lip and for years whenever the pressure dropped the scar swelled, and I knew it was going to rain. The water levels in my toilet tell me the same thing ;)
