Sleep + Recovery = Weekend Warrior
Skipping The Peloton With A Good Reason Plus Another Good Old Back and Bicep Workout

Defeating Chernabog & Other Demons At The Gym Via Chest Day Workout & Other Random Acts of Fitness Musings

As always not much thought goes into my posts.  It's just my musing ranting thoughts as I'm typing away.  Don't read too much into these musings.

Wake Up Wake Up!  I had planned on going to bed early and getting a great night sleep.  But...I just couldn't fall asleep.  My mind would not shut off.  Finally I did fall asleep after some tossing and turning.  Then before my alarm could go off this morning I was up.  Played around on my phone and finally got up and got ready for the gym.

I finished with Core Work.  What?  I never do that!  I need to add ab work into my workouts.  As for the workout it was good.  I had the whole gym alone for the entire time!  Guess getting to the gym at 4am on a Saturday is a good thing.  
I am skipping cardio as it is a Disney Day.  I didn't do Biceps to get a Disney Pump going as I wanted to do Chest today.  I know on Sunday there are three guys who are at the gym doing chest when I'm there.  Not that I avoid people but I do avoid people at the gym.  Workout by workout I am getting stronger as my body dysmorphia gets stronger.  
He said, "Son, when you grow upWould you be the savior of the brokenThe beaten and the damned?"He said, "Will you defeat them?Your demons, and all the non-believers
Demons.  Gotta beat them.  My current Fitradio playlist has Chemical Romance's Welcome To The Black Parade so it's been in my head a few times this week.  Now I'm no savior but I am beating my demons.  We all have them.  As I get older and older, 53 is old, I'm becoming a better person.  I consider the person I am at 53 should have been the person I was at 23.  But it's all good.  Tomorrow is Back and Biceps!
As today is a Disney Day I don't know how much sleep I'll be getting but I'll be back at the gym tomorrow. Random Acts of Fitness for today includes one of my centers hosting the cycling club and another Walk Away the Pounds.
