When Anxiety Calls I Run To The Gym Workout

Anxiety over stupid work stuff gave me a bad sleep and an early rise.  About 2:30am I had to use the rest room but wasn't able to fall asleep so I sat with my head running shit for 45 minutes before I got out of bed.  I just need to get past this week and next and everything will be okay.  Really just the next 7 or 8 days.  Everything is beyond my control so I just need to take a deep breath and not let it get to me.  All this stupid shit is going to either make me quit my job in the next 48 hours or get over these next few days and work there about 4 to 8 years.  I'm just gonna keep on my Peloton every day to keep my anxiety at bay to the New Year.

As for today I got to the gym early since I couldn't sleep.  Not too early.  I was about 10 minutes earlier which allowed me more gym time.  While I was doing my Cardio Warm Up I was debating if it would be Back and Biceps or Chest, Triceps and Shoulders.  As it got closer to 4am I decided since no one was really there I'd take advantage of the empty bar and bench.  So I did Chest, Triceps and Shoulders.

7 min warm up cardio
BB Incline Chest Press
10x EB
10x 70.37% of 1RM
8x 81.48% of 1RM
8x 81.48% of 1RM
8x 81.48% of 1RM
Flat Bench DB Fly 1 2 3 4
Flat Bench DB Skullcrusher 1 2 3 4
Flat Bench DB Press 1 2 3 4
SS - Tricep Rope Pulldown / Facepulls 1 2 3 4
DB Lateral Raises 1 2 3 4

I should have done one more set of 8 chest presses at 81.8% but I'm a nice guy and did a Random Act of Fitness by leaving the area as I thought someone wanted to work out there.  But they didn't.  Ugh!  Damn those former Crossfitters that are now working out at 4am.  Not many people work out at 4am but now we got two more regulars.  I've never talked to them but I don't like them.  I want my 4am gym back.  That's one of the reasons I go so early.  Usually everything I want is free.  Every so often we get a new person or two at the 4am hour but over time they vanish.  Getting up at 4am is a thing most people cant sustain or want to.

After that I came home for a 30 minute Ride with Arms.  I only got 3lb weights so it's not much.  The ride was endurance so a Slow and Steady Burn in the saddle.  Love that.  Tomorrow will be Back and Biceps. After tomorrow no gym for Thursday/Friday/Saturday so I'll try a Peloton to calm myself.  Then on Sunday I should be able to hit the gym.  But back off on Monday/Tuesday.  After Tuesday everything should be okay.  My staff should all be back from holiday vacations and medical leaves.  So I should have a calm New Year if I can just get past these next 7 days.
