Bad days

You win some and you lose some, right? After having a string of great lifting days, it was bound to happen, I had a bad day. My heart wasn't in it, my body was tired, and I wasn't commiting to the lifts. I did get new 1 RM's for the snatch and the jerk, but they weren't even close to what I had hoped they would be.

That workout ruined my whole day yesterday, and it made me soooo miserable. Ask Rocky, he had to spend the day with me, and I was NOT a happy camper. Then he showed me our old 1 RMs from May, and I instantly felt better. Though my results from yesterday didn't seem huge to me then, when compared to results from a few months ago, they were quite impressive! Bad days are bound to happen, but what makes you great is how you let it affect you and how you react to it. I ruined a whole day yesterday moping around feeling sorry for myself, maybe I should have researched snatch techniques and practiced, etc.

Even if it was only a small gain yesterday, atleast it was a gain right?! Heck, Im not going backwards, so I'll take a little step forwards!

Don't be too hard on yourself, any step forward is a step in the right direction!

On a side note, I had completely cut out fruit and all other carbs from my diet as a recommendation from a friend, but I don't believe in not eating fruit, so I am bringing that back into my diet. Helllllo apples and berries, I've missed you guys!!! :)

This is my vice. Apples and natural peanut butter.
