Injuries suck🤕. Physically, mentally, emotionally---they're terrible all around. At the start of this year, I ended up injuring my lower back(initially felt like my hip) within the very first week of training. I refused to take time off and kept pushing through. By the end of Week 5, the pain got really bad. I couldn't squat or deadlift at all, and I finished up Week 6 in a half assed manner and started my deload. But the pain persisted, and I got myself checked out. The doctor told me I had a severe strain in my lower back, and needed to take time off ASAP. Apparently this was an injury I physically shouldn't have been able to work through, but I guess drive and stubbornness are quite the anesthetic.
Psychologically, I didn't take the injury well. 2019 hasn't started off the way I hoped in any aspect. I thought I learned my lesson, given I had a similar injury at the end of 2017 that sidelined me for months because I didn't allow it to heal properly. Clearly, I have much more to learn.
I'm disappointed in myself. Not only in the fact that I managed to injure myself again, but in my reaction to said injury. I fell back into self destructive habits I practiced years ago, and made things far worse than they needed to be. I realize there are things I cannot control, but my emotions and reactions are not among those things.
After A LOT of drugs and rest, my back is recovering, albeit slowly. But it took much more meditation and reflection to get my mind back on track. This injury didn't break me, it just made me hungrier. I may be down, but you can bet your ass I'm not out.
P.S. I'll be doing recovery training as soon as I'm able, so might not post too much over that period. I'll be back to normal training in March(hopefully), at which point I'll be back to my regular posting frequency. Thanks for your patience and support.

Life is balanced by itself, but when we add our perspectives and our upbringings, our life becomes unbalanced and its our job to create balance.
Arms have been a pain in the ass my whole life so its nice to see shit starting to take shape. Been trying to blast the tri's since its 75% of your arms. I'm not trying to bulk them up just cut them up a bit. Starting to get some veins in on the backside so vascular is good. Ill start doing the bar dips, French dips and more pushups in the mix to help move things along. Not worried about legs I can't miss arm day. More shoulder work needs to happen as well along with chest work. Gotta crawl before you walk. #Triheads

A major part of my early mindset shift was the elimination of my obsession and fetishization of food. I blocked any and all cooking and dining videos from all my social feeds. I refused to watch cooking shows. Instead I replaced all of these activities with outdoor pursuits. Small changes lead to big improvements. #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #staygrinding #truth
