2012 | Day 160: Is your world just a broken promise...your love just a drop of rain...



Quote for Reflection: “♥ The creation of your REALITY begins with your THOUGHTS ~ “BAIT” your “HOOK” properly! ♥ COGNITIONS will bring the identical EXHIBITIONS into your life. You will “ATTRACT” back a certain “fish” based on the “LURE” that you USE, so be very SELECTIVE with the one that you CHOOSE! Before “CASTING” your “LINE”, make sure the “CHUM” is “IN line” with the EXACT fish that you would like to see COME! ♥ EXPECT only the BEST for yourself and have your ACTIONS follow suit with those thoughts. If you want the “BIGGEST” fish in the OCEAN, do not select a “ROD” that cannot handle the “MOTION”! ♥ BELIEVE yourself to be capable of attracting the grandest fish of the “SEAS”…IMAGINE bass and trout, without thoughts of minnows or anchovies! Do not allow your thoughts to “BOB” up-and-down as to what you are DESERVING of. Believe yourself to be worthy of the most “prize-winning” “GAME”…and that is exactly what you will “REEL IN” ♥ If you “CATCH” yourself thinking negative thoughts, simply “RELEASE” them and refocus on “PULLING IN” POSITIVITY. “TURN THE TIDE” of life in your favor by looking for the “UPSIDE” in all circumstances ♥ Become a “MAGNET” for all things AMAZING! You do not have to travel in a “SCHOOL” to be aware that your MIND is your greatest “TOOL”…use it to “TACKLE” life, “HOOK, LINE, & SINKER!!” ♥” - Lauren Christine Frahn

Sleep: ~6 hours, after having to exhaust myself to get TO sleep first. Woke from dreams so real the emotion they evoked was as if they HAD happened.

Energy: There, calmly.

Joints: Pain in both delt/biceps' tendons. And in my LEFT shoulder deep in the joint.

Pump: With the newest Assault, I get this hard and fast, no matter what I have done PRIOR to weights, nothing or something, which is one of the things I am liking about this formula.

Quality of Training: Back to my HIIT OUTside - it was nice, but also very hot and only got hotter, making it a little hard to breathe. Did 28 sprints as fast as I could, feeling it in my left shoulder during and after...Down to the basement today for weights. The other skipping rope that I have is not a speed rope and can be annoying to use, so I left the skipping from my resistance session/s today. Shoulders in the morning, Hamstrings in the evening. Anterior delts in a lot of pain, particularly in my left shoulder during most exercises, and winced my way through them - hence also the lower volume of that session, which only took 20 minutes to do (very short compared to my usual 50-60 minutes of intensity)...Hamstrings were fine - no Assault before this session, since it was so short and can't even really even be called a session, IMO. Then 3-mile run afterwards, just to make my body suffer more, welcoming the pain...

Supplements: Recompadrol is available again (so I'll have some more by the end of the week)!
