But to be honest I was super unmotivated at the gym today and after my warm-up my head just wasn't in the game. I racked up 155 pounds and after 5 reps I just gave up! Well, being darned disappointed in myself I decided to make lemonade out of these lemons and turned it into a 5x5 workout that I will probably continue for 6-8 weeks.

Spent Friday thru Sunday morning out in the field for work with very little sleep. We'd catch naps for an hour or two here and there but it was always interrupted. We'd have to get up and work for a few hours before catching another nap! Because of this erratic sleep, I was too wiped out the rest of Sunday to do anything. Went to the sanctuary on Monday and then spent Tuesday recovering from hauling grain around! Someday I'll actually stick to my routine . Life keeps getting in the way .
This is where I was:

Wow, you know the exact date you started lifting? I think it's nearly 3 years for me now, hope I'll be as strong as you in 5 years!

I'm tackling my shoulder problem head on! I've always been of the philosophy that if a joint is bad, it always helps to strengthen the muscles around it. With that in mind, I'm adding rotator-cuff stuff to my routine. Someone awhile back had posted in someone else's log about shoulder rehab exercises, now I'm gonna have to track that down and make sure I'm doing it right and not forgetting anything. Also switched to dumbbells for a minute, my pressing was getting so uneven! DBs should fix that right up
