My 100% Natural Pre-Workout Supplement of Choice..

...ANGER :)

Pure, savage, gorilla-like anger.  Maybe I'm slightly over exaggerating, but today I hit the gym with my blood boilin' and had the best workout I have had in a long time. It was also leg day and it also ended with me calling an ambulance, but I'll get into that in a minute.

Today's workout consisted of: lunges, calf raises (center, in, out), squats, wide squats and stiff-legged deadlifts.  I was able to up my wide squats to 110lbs (!!!!)..and I managed 2 reps of regular squats at the same weight..finally..I have been stuck at 95lbs for weeks and 110lbs is just a few short of my bodyweight. I am so estatic about this.  This is probably nothing compared to what ya'll are squattin' but I'm gettin' there! :)

So as I floated on squat-cloud nine during my 20 minutes of cardio there were two younger girls next to me, one on the jacob's ladder and her friend on a treadmill.  The girl on the jacob's ladder got off and I looked over and she was crouched with her face pressed against the window. I thought huh, that's odd, but whatever...two seconds later the girl keeled over onto her friend's treadmill, smashed her head on it and rolled off onto the floor with her eyes rolled in the back of her head.  I DOVE off the machine I was on, mp3 player flying in six directions, and ran over to her while some other woman ran to the front desk...the girl's friend was crying histerically trying to pick up the girl who had passed out and had a seizure I guess...I noticed that no one had called 911..not even the guy at the front desk. So, that's where I came in since my cell phone was with me.  Luckily the girl woke up and was coherent, the ambulance arrived and took her away. Very scary thing to see though...even scarier that no one had the brains to call 911 and only a couple people came to help.

Other than that my day has been uneventful, but relaxing after an exhausting week.  I'd really appreciate being able to wipe out on the floor for hours like my cats do..

I'm about to go update my blogroll page since an update is desperately needed.  So I leave you with some lovely weekend inspiration :)

Good Reads;


  1. Dang what a day at the gym! Seizures can definitely be scary if you've never witnessed one (or your doing something that could cause a lot of harm- like you witnessed!) I've grown up witnessing them and witness them daily at my job so it doesn't phase me like it used to- but I'm sure if someone smacked their head on the treadmill I might freak out a bit! Yikes! I hope she's okay!

  2. Wow great post - congrats on the squat weight!! That is so scary that the girl had a seizure!! :( I was on a running trail once where a girl passed out and we called 911...sometimes people jsut overdo it :( I hope she is ok though.

    I love your inspirational pics!

    What kind of cat is that?? He/she reminds me a lot of Teddy...Himalayan?

  3. Anger is definitely a motivator at the gym.
    I'm glad that you were calm and cool enough to call 911! I am sure the girl thanks you, too.
    WTG with your increased squat weight! I will get there someday. I am determined.
    I want a cat.

  4. Wow. That must have been terrifying. I witnessed my mom have a grand-mal seizure when I was young and it was seriously one of the most terrifying moments of my life. The gym is an especially dangerous place for that to happen... at least you had the brains to do something!

    However... congrats to you and your squattingballerness. It sounds like your training is really kicking off, especially with your diet being cleaned up. How is that going btw?

  5. Oh my ! How scary that would of been : ( Im so glad the girl is ok and thank heaven for you calling 911 : ) can not believe nobody else did, Im guessing they were probably in shock , god for you to call!

    U are a squatting queen! U go girl!!

    Have a great night! xoxo <3

  6. I know supplements like prohormones are very good for body but please let me know the side effects of disadvantages if they can have on our body.
