Last Thursday I finished up my Angel tattoo so I didn’t get to go to the gym Friday or Saturday to let it heal up. I made my goals for the week but by the skin of my teeth and only because I had days like this:
I kinda of knew I probably wouldn’t beat my goals if I didn’t add some extra time to the days I did go, but I went a little crazy hehe, I even clocked in about 22,000 steps that day! Either way, I did sleep well after that workout!
I am sure you want to see my finished tattoo…
Don’t judge my thigh, this is 10 minutes after we finished and man was I swollen! It’s in the peeling stage right now so I can’t snap a new one quite yet. Leaf did such a good job getting Angel’s attitude in her face, and I LOVE the frame! I already have my other leg planned the only thing is that I hate cutting into my gym time especially since I am trying to work on my endurance for the runs that I am doing this summer.
Monday was my first day back to the gym since my tattoo and it is my weekly leg day with Jake. I used to just run while Jake did all his squats and deadlifts but a little over a month ago or so I decided that I should be doing that too. So now I do his entire routine.
The first week I started doing all this it hurt to walk for days after, now my legs still get a little sore since I keep upping the weight but not nearly like that first week. I think there is a big difference in how they look though. Hopefully. Even if there isn’t a measurable difference I am getting stronger and that is kind of cool, and it’s more fun and entertaining to be on the meathead side of the gym for a change.
