Hey tumblrs! Jenna. 22 years old. Gay. Single. I'm a college student studying nursing and working at a domestic violence shelter in Illinois. I love: skydiving, sports, working out, swimming (and anything in the water), adventures, and smart, athletic women. Currently in the process of slimming down for good. My blog: a hodgepodge of gay things, workout things, pretty girls, and things that I find funny or annoying. Take it or leave it. I'm ALWAYS here for any followers that need to talk about anything (anon or not) I love meeting people and hearing their stories. What's yours?
DISCLAIMER: I do not have any credentials for nutrition, lifting, working out, etc. If you ask my advice, know that I am giving you an answer based on a few college nutrition courses, my own personal experience, what I have read, what I have been told by my nutritionist/doctor, etc. I AM NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR MEDICAL ADVICE.
Okay so before I get asks about it or people looking down their noses, I am lifting a lot less weight. I haven’t lifted regularly in a long ass time and if I go back full-force where I was, I will hurt myself. So I decided to put my ego on the shelf and lift to get better not to screw up my body. Okay?

Yeah I suck at keeping up to date with posting this crap when I’m on break so here we go:
MONDAY 12/17: Tracked a Workout for 861 pts
TUESDAY 12/18/12: Tracked a Workout for 1,177 pts
THURSDAY 12/20/12: Tracked a Workout for 528 pts
Ah, all caught up to date now. Nothing for today. I’m being a lazy shit and finishing up my christmas shopping :)
Does anyone like a product for decreasing muscle soreness after lifting? I’ve heard good things about creatine and glutamine but I was wondering if anyone had any advice. It seems like lately I am horribly sore after lifting and I am looking for something to make it better. I don’t mind soreness but it’s starting to impeded my ability to get a good workout which I do mind. I know research says they help but I was wondering if anyone had a preference or experience with it working for them. Anybody have any opinions?
Actually got to lift today!!!! I am a happy camper right now even though i’m absurdly exhausted. I always count that as a good thing though.

Okay first off, WHAT DID FITOCRACY DO? Everything is different. I don’t like change. Also, I’m going to my besties tomorrow-saturday, my mom’s sunday, and my dad’s monday-part of wednesday so I may be on/working out sporadically. Such is life though. Sucks I had to cut this workout a little short because my cramps were making me really nauseous. I made it to the bathroom at least :/

I decided not to work out today because I need to pack up my apartment, clean, and I don’t want to be sore tomorrow when I have to carry my couch a few blocks lol.
So today I had to do teach swimming from 8 am to 11 pm and go to the shelter from 12 pm to 8 pm. The gym closes at 8 pm so I had to work out from 6:30-7:50am. It sucks when I’ve been sleeping badly and am extremely tired but excuses are for quitters and I refuse to quit.
Woke up late, had a lazy morning, went to the gym, and am now lounging again lol. I will be helping with a shelter event tonight.
