Long hours at work but made it to the gym

FitFam Tuesday, 


Hello fellow bloggers, yesterday I had mentioned that I did not make it to the gym, I decided to catch up on some sleep, study and work on my social media projects in order to get somewhat ahead. I had warned all of you that last week and this week would be very busy weeks for me since I picked up many hours at work. I received my schedule for next month, and I will be back at my old schedule (yay!), ALSO, thank you to those that watched and commented on my video from yesterday. I appreciate the feedback and positive words. Today I did so happen to make it to the gym, and this would be the day for me to do squats for the challenge, but I am going to wait until my pmsing goes away because squatting is uncomfortable for me otherwise. Sorry. I did however do an upperbody workout and did very well today in my opinion. 


The weirdest thing happened to me today at the gym, while working out, this man was watching me, he watched me for about 30 minutes straight and I am not sure why, maybe it was because he thought he knew me, maybe because I was doing an exercise that caught his attention or possibly because he had nothing better to do, not sure. Anyways, I found it to be weird , lol not to mention I could see him the whole time watching me as I am looking at the mirror and looking at him, to see if maybe it would throw him off, but nope he continued – just thought I would share that story. lol. 


On the other hand, here is my workout I accomplished for today:


Workout Session:

  • lat pulldown (narrow grip): 3 x 15, 55 lb Superset with Cable crossover: 3 x 15, 20lb
  • Lat pulldown (narrow grip): 3 x 10, 70 lb Superset with Cable curls: 3 x 10, 25 lb
  • Lat pulldown (narrow grip): 3 x 8, 85 lb Superset with Cable upright row: 3 x 8, 25 lb
  • One hand cable row: 5 x 6 ea. 25 lb Superset with overhead press: 5 x 6, 50 lb

  • One arm upright row: 5 x 6 ea. 15 lb Superset with straight bar bentover row: 5 x 6, 50 lb
  • Triceps dips: 2 x 15

Thanks for reading, feel free to give this workout a go, or share it among friends/family.

  1. Haha @braddahr. Yea that was a little creepy. Sometimes I talk to the person staring and ask can I help you? I noticed you’ve been staring at me. Its a little ballsy but that usually throws them off.

    Um I know they’re your eyes but I’m also entitled to not feeling uncomfortable. I also agree that Pull ups could optimize your workout but at the end of the day it depends on you 🙂

    • Yes, I probably will end up doing it next time if the same person does this weird behavior. I thought maybe I have a hitman waiting for me! lmfao. Someone who wants to destroy me and take over my blog and I didn’t know about it. xD just a theory.

      Yes, pull ups do optimize my workouts with upperbody exercises, Braddahr has me doing this challenge to increase my pull up reps, which is good but the machine was taken and I didn’t want to wait God knows how long. lol. — so skipped out but yeah 🙂 I agree.

      • “The machine was taken”? You should have said, “Excuse me, I’m Shay-lon.” The person would have gotten out of the way. (I really want to make a comment about you needing a machine but I keep saying to myself ‘no judgment, no shame, create safe places…’)

      • My gym only has one pull up station, I guess I should call it a station instead, lol. because while it is a machine you can do pull ups without the assistance if someone wanted to. Anywho, I might try that next time, the whole I am Shay-lon, and you will be responsible for any remarks I might get afterwards, lol.

      • Bahahahhaha! wow! lol she could be trying to take over the world, but since she laughed at your humor, guess we can’t no longer assume that. If she does decide to take over mankind, this will be your fault, once again.

        She has a good blog page and that is only because I have visited, but there may not be any proof of this. lol

      • Hit man?? 😒lol hopefully not. But yea i know how that is when the machine is in use. I was upset at the gym the other day when all the treadmills were taken up and I was relegated to a spot next to this girl that was hacking her lungs out. I refuse to get sick cuz someone wants to exercise. Anyhow I had to switch up my work out. It worked out in the end but I was like geeez. If you’re about to die, don’t go to the gym and spread your sickness.

      • Bahahahhaaha! when you have to be next to the THAT one person who has the cold, and you don’t want to take the risk but you are trying to decide if it is worth it! lmao & you didn’t come with a back up plan but you just do something that makes sense, yep.
