    -- LEG DAY --Leg day kills me,

    almost. It is like someone plugs a power cord into my body and slowly drains my energy for about 90 minutes. By the time I walk out of the gym on leg day, I feel light headed and my whole body feels weak. Walking up stairs is difficult. As I leave the gym, I can't wait to get to...

    There's something to be said about Russian

    Strength training, I'm loving it!!!! They took a lot of it from the Spartans, and people wonder why you don't mess with Russia.

    I started with a personal trainer

    after my boyfriend broke up with me! It's one of the best things I have done! Makes me stop thinking of him for at least an hour of my day and makes me happier in myself!

    Today, Some people were discussing working out

    and being fit on EP and in real life. Both times stated that, people who like to make themselves look good are shallow. I was quite annoyed but kept listening to their reasons. "I hate people who are too attractive, or people who work out heaps", "All they care about is...

    I'm currently trying to improve my time with

    jogging/running. I like to listen to music while I do this. I've been on a Rock, Punk Rock, Alternative Kick but I need more songs to keep me pumped up. If you have a favorite song in these categories please let me know.

    Helps with stress and to have a better day.

    Especially when I force my night owl self to go to bed early so I can get up at 4am and be back before everyone else wakes up.

    Tomorrow I head back home.

    I have probably gained 10 pounds on vacation! Although I'm stoked to sleep in my own bed, I am going to miss my crazy, amazing family... And the beautiful beach. 💙

    I swim twice a week, a few kilometres each time.

    I workout twice a week. I have two routines involving cardio and free weights. Regular exercise is very important for good health, even sexual health!

    Going from working out to not working out

    and then back to working out again helped me realize how much it helps me. I'm happier, I feel slimmer, and my body just feels great, even if it is worn out.

    Very pleased with myself tonight.

    I managed a 425lb Smith Machine squat. I didn't go *** to the ground, only 90 degrees. But at a height of almost 6'3" anything over 90 is hard on my knees. I'm hoping to work my way back to my max 11 years ago of 540lbs. Confidence and focus will get me there.

    I work with a guy I'll call Austin.

    We got really drunk together one night and started talking about working out. I've never been one to go to the gym, but he inspired me. It's been a snowball effect... Him, my feeling of being tired and wanting a nice ***, some girl I work with whose boyfriend has a great body...

    The gym is my church,

    my "fortress of solitude", my "place of peace", my therapy, my number one addiction; the place I rely on instead of drugs and alcohol, my guilty pleasure over p.orn, s.ex addiction, gallivanting or whatever people run to. When life breaks me down, I combat with it by literally...
