Yesterday's Motivation:  

Via Pinterest

Right now, this is more applicable to my eating than my workouts.   I'm used to the workouts.  I'm used to pushing myself until I literally don't have any reps left in me.   I'm used to being sore - every day.  I am used to waking up at 5:00.  I'm used to minimal sleep.  What I may never get used to is avoiding bread, passing on desserts, and (gasp) abiding by a "wine only on the weekends rule".  It's hard.  It's absolutely miserable at times.  But, in the end, it's worth it. 

Yesterday's Workout: 

After stretching and foam rolling, I started the workout with this core circuit to warm up:


After the core circuit, I moved into squats.  I warmed up with 10 reps with the bar, 8 reps with 75 pounds, 5 reps with 95 pounds, and 3 reps in 115 pounds. 

For my work sets, I did three sets of 135 pound squats.   Slightly difficult.  

I finished the workout with this full body circuit:


Confession:  This workout kicked my butt.  For real.  I could barely walk today, which tells me I did something right.
