I’ve been feeling pretty off for the past few days – really just not like myself.  It was a holiday weekend, so I had a day off from work on Thursday for Thanksgiving, Friday at work was a complete waste of time and had nothing going on Friday Night.  Saturday was just as much of a waste except for the Chanticleer concert which made me feel a little better, and Sunday I just had rehearsal in the afternoon.

All in all, it was a pretty useless weekend (not to put down family time on Thanksgiving). On top of all that, it was my three rest days for the week – no gym time whatsoever.

I think that’s what affected me the most – not being in the gym.  At least, I think it was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  On top of feeling lazy all weekend, I couldn’t counteract that feeling by running, or lifting, or doing much of anything.  So today, that all changed.

I hit the gym tonight like I never have before.  I upped the weight for every set and just KILLED it. I pushed through as hard as I could, sweat until my shirt was soaked, and just felt so strong in general!  I was mentally, emotionally and physically in it tonight – and it felt great.

I guess it’s just funny – music has always been the thing that gets me out of my funk.  But this time, it was the gym.  I think now it’s pretty safe to say that I’m addicted to weight lifting.
