Hi hiiii happy Sunday! So today’s a good day. Yanno why? I woke up slowly, went to church, took a nap, and then hit the gym for legs.
I’ve hinted at a few new lil goals I’ve got. I’m considering entering a powerlifting competition at the end of March 2018. I thought about this earlier this year, but then I hurt my back sooooo it had to be put on hold. But now that my back is healed, I feel that there’s no better time. Lifts are going up each week, so i really think i could do it. .
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t really nervous. I get shaky when I start to think about lifting a weight my body can’t handle. BUT, I’m choosing to see the fear and go for it anyways (safely, of course). So tonight? I decided to go for a number (160) that I haven’t hit since I got injured. I started to freak a bit and legit had visions of the bar collapsing over me 😅 I was scared of hurting my back again. But I knew I had to at least try. So I went for it. I put on a kick ass song and the weight went UP. So moral of this story? You’re stronger than you think, so prove yourself wrong. While i know that 160 isn’t competitive, I’m ready to get stronger the next few months 💪🏼👊🏼
