For the last months I've reduced gymming from 4-5 days a week to mostly 1 or 2 days if I'm really lucky. And it sucks cos I find weight lifting somewhat therapeutic. But I don't really have a choice, between uni placements and work schedules, gym can't be a priority.
Then a few weeks ago I injured my back during deadlifts and that really SUCKED. I was already slowing down my progress as I was adjusting to the less frequent sessions but now I was setback even further. So with a full schedule, a shitty back (which is getting better), tons of self induced stress, early mornings/lack of sleep and long train commutes - I'm halfway through placements and still going . I have set my working weight back but I'm focusing on form. And today, I have just started deadlifting again. Progress is slow, and I'm learning to be okay with that. And I've had to find other therapeutic outlets, I like coffee hunting, my daily fun size kitkat bar that I look forward to, cooking/baking for others. Just when I feel like things are getting comfortable again, another curveball appears and I gotta find a way to get through it, gotta keep moving, one fun size kitkat at a time #haveabreak
