Last night I reached a new milestone: I leg pressed 225 lbs. It’s definitely an accomplishment for me since I didn’t think I was capable of it. It doesn’t seem like much, but to me it was something I was proud of. I’ve always preached about pushing yourself, and last night I did just that. If you have goals, it is so important to push yourself. Don’t push yourself until your body gives out, but push yourself with self-care yet determination. I was staying in a place of average when I could have done so much better. My passion for the gym is my greatest moments of criticizing myself. I was proud of myself, but really disappointed I didn’t try sooner. No one wants to be that guy in the gym who tries something and looks like an idiot. Without trying, there is no room for progress.
With that being said here’s my new goal: In a month, leg press 245 lbs. Each week, I’d like to add on five pounds, resulting in twenty pounds from my original accomplishment.
I’d also like to have a much more consistent gym schedule and see five pounds of muscle added onto my current weight. I would like to push myself more than I ever have and achieve my goals.
Okay, Angebel here-
I’m so proud of Jason for reaching a milestone. Witnessing him doing so made me realize that a lot of our setbacks root from us thinking we can’t do something. Sometimes all you have to do is try.
So with watching my husband do his things- I HIT A MILESTONE. I leg pressed 135 lbs. That may not be much to some folks, but to me it is. I suppose I didn’t push myself the way could have.
I’ve been pretty obsessed with working on back and arms. Along with Jason, I have a weight goal too. I want to be down to 130 pounds. I’m not too far away from the goal, number wise. However, lately my weight hasn’t gone down.
After my 24th birthday I felt my body changing. Perhaps it’s the metabolism. Whatever it is, I’m pushing to that 130.
I’m also actively working towards a goal in the gym, but I’ll be talking about that in a later post.
So here’s to milestone and new goals. We always appreciate tips and advice.
All the Best,
