Just Step Back and Wear Those Trainers That Give You Joy Workout

State of Mind.  State of Body.  State of Health.  Mind, Body and Health.  24 hours later and all three of those feel so much better.  My anxiety is down over things I can't control.  Most of that came from talking to someone to get clarification on an upcoming task.  That lead to a better night sleep then the night before.  Not a great sleep but better.  Even saying that I woke up groggy but got myself together and hit the gym

Back and  Biceps with more back.  I cut back one or two movements from the workout so I could get home and on my bike.  I want to stop and get donuts for a group at work.  I know donuts are bad but people enjoy them including me.  I'll eat at least one.  Now since I only got this one last workout before Christmas I wore my Christmas Brooks.  I've been wearing them to work but havn't had them in a gym yet this year.  Of course it being 4am did anyone even see them.  At the very least I did and it gave me Joy.  My own Random Act of Fitness to myself.

5 minutes cardio
Asst Wide Grip Pull Up 1 2 3 4
Curlbar Preacher Curl 1 2 3 4 5
Underhand Grip Bentover Row 1 2 3 4
Seated Cable Row 1 2 3 4
Cable Hammer Curl 1 2 3 4
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown 1 2 3 4

Nothing special about today's workout except that it is done!  Wahoo!  After that I did a 20 minute Low Impact Ride.  Was going to do a 10 minute Lanebreak but had to use the restroom and I really need to get in gear for work.  I'm opening Thursday and Friday but will try at least a short ride on those two days.  May use Saturday as a Recovery Day and back to the gym on Sunday and Monday.  Yup that is an additional day to workout from what I was complaining about the last week.  Perspective is important and sometimes one needs to step back to see what is the deal.  I did that yesterday partially from a song:
When you're high on emotionAnd you're losing your focusAnd you feel too exhausted to prayDon't get lost in the momentOr give up when you're closestAll you need is somebody to say
It's okay not to be okayIt's okay not to be okayWhen you're down and you feel ashamedIt's okay not to be okay
Really I had that on my morning drive playlist and it gave me clarity and perspective.  More Random Acts of Fitness I'll start with work today as my center hosts 4 exercise classes today and I High-5'ed everyone on the Peloton Bike+ Class.  And maybe someone at the gym saw my Holiday Trainers and that gave them some joy.  I'll wear them again on Sunday.
