How do you get Yourself out of a Funk?

The good news?  I did another 43 today!! (I’m counting that as good news because at least I’m still on course to meet my goal for the year!)

So, today I did a new (to me) variation of a bicep curl – a V-curl.  This one was cool because it actually worked my shoulders a bit, too!

I started in a standard position for a bicep curl (arms at side, palms facing out) then instead of curling straight up, I did an arc motion to bring my hands up to my shoulders (palms still facing out).

(overlook the slight lean, I can’t put much weight on my right leg so I’m a little off-balance!)

I tried to keep the motion slow and controlled.  I had to use lighter weights than I would for a standard curl (12 pound DBs today).  Overall, I liked this 43.

I’m in a MAJOR FUNK!!   Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 8.58.35 AMNothing a good hard run won’t fix!!  OH – wait – that’s part of my problem – I can barely walk today much less run!Screen shot 2013-05-02 at 8.56.40 AM

Plus – it’s May 2 and the temp has dropped from 39 to 34 in the last 2 hours.  Currently I’m watching some of that awful white stuff mixed in with sleet fall from the sky – NOT COOL!!!

So, I’m going to get some soup going in the crock pot and then probably spend the day with my legs up watching mindless reality TV!!! (and maybe eating chocolate!!!)
