The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Nightmare of a schedule, but if you can manage a workout here and there it will be worth it.

    Well it sounds like your doing well in the financial or life things. Just figure out a little time to enjoy it. It does feel good when you can move forward on some projects or whatever though.

    well that was short lived! lol
    no more stays in camp with gym access. but...........
    I'm finally pulling the plug on my rediculous overtime hours. Had my breaking point where I said its time for me to start living life. I accomplished what my goals were though, be pretty free to do as I please $$ wise. I put down a large sum of cash on the stock markets when they were at the bottom, Today it moved up a little and im up $2000, so I'll let that sit and mature/grow. I have a raise coming sometime soon too, very nice one, 10% of so! And I'm officially back to the gym! For real

    today
    bike 10 mins warmup
    chins semi supinate BWx20
    S.S. chins with 135 BB rows 12-8,12-8,12-8
    set of curls
    another 15 mins sorta hard on bike
    done
    wegith 184 lbs

    I'm already feeling at ease now that I don't have to worry about work for a few days!

    and on the Landlord dead, we had heavy rains for days, basement flooded, insurance will be covering and.........we finally got some tenants! They're even going to stay there during the repairs. (tight rental market here, take what you can!)

    late, late, late night last night, plus earlish get up = totally exhausted today. Business side of me is coming out......going to be firing my property managment firm. I had to do every task that they were assigned by me. Everything from marketing my property to writing the lease with special conditions in it. and they still expect a 10% cut of my rent cheque's.....**** them!
    On the plus side though, I am loving life right now! In all aspects. Don't get me wrong though, I may have stopped working so much overtime but I am still at work for about 60 hours a week, plus running my rental business, and finally getting to go out too,

    workout
    bike 8 minute warmup

    good am's 135x20
    Megaset side bends with 45 plate 8,10,12,10,8
    hanging leg raises 8 sets of 8
    bike hard - 20 mins total - Ticker test again at one level a minute 110RPM - completed L.11 @ 180 BPM!
    done
    weight 180 lbs
    Great workout! Felt totally refreshed for it, took my time warming up on deads as I didn't do them in ages, the 365x5 was good, felt hard, but not heavy on any of my body parts. aka I'll be good for much more weight soon, my body's conditioned for it!
    Ticker test went well too! Wasn't even breating to heavy till the last 2 or 3 rounds.
    And as usual, My BW is holding but I am leaning up very nicely! Rough BF% guess would be 13%ish right now. Maybe less.
    I'm off to work. Got a bunch of night shifts ahead of me.
