#MotivationalMondays- I Lift Things Up & Put Them Down

That Planet Fitness commercial always makes me stop dead in my tracks whenever it’s played. It’s clever nod to Arnold Schwarzy-poo combined with a genuine message which pleases all of us non-meatheads. (because the actual meatheads never realize how obnoxious they are in the weights section) (FYI- Spandex de-masculinizes you. Hello, Richard Simmons!)

If that was just complete Japanese to you, I encourage you to watch what I’m talking about:

As much as I despise the weight drops and animal grunts in the gym, I cannot lie I caught myself mimicking them without even being aware of it the other day.

As you know, I’ve been battling an injured chest muscle for almost 4 months now. It’s a perpetual fly in my ear and every time I try any twisting or lateral movement it feels like lightning bolts through that entire area.

As you may also know, I started work in the Whole Foods bakery the day after Christmas. It’s not all having your cake and eating it too. It involves immense lifting, climbing, pulling and pushing. (I was literally doing shoulder presses with the chocolate chip cookie trays!)

As you may not know, I actually am enjoying the atmosphere. People are friendly even though I’ve messed up several times (hard for a perfectionist to admit) and I love that I smell chocolate instead of seafood in my department.

As you also may not know, I try to beast mode in every aspect of my life. I am the epitome of a clean eating, clean car, clean boyfriend, clean room, clean credit, clean record kind of person.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: INJURIES NEVER STOP ME. So as much as I was hurting, I absolutely probably caused even more damage to my chest muscle with this workout:

I’m planning on becoming a bionic woman in 2013, haven’t you heard? 😉

What have your workouts been like? Are you making any goals for the New Year

Peace, love, and BEAST MODE!
