I was wondering if any of you had a defining moment as far as knowing you were dedicated and on a path and at the right mental state of mind that you knew you would reach your goals?
I think I had my first today. I had just finished work and had an hour or two before I started another part time job. I was on my way back home and was talking myself into missing today’s gym session.
I had a really bad headache, was thirsty and soaked through but I knew if I got back home and on the sofa for ten minutes I would not be getting up and going to the gym.
Just at the corner of my street I said fuck this and from nowhere felt a strong pull of determination to man up and do what I needed to to get to where I want to be and turned around and headed to the Gym.
So i powered on in the rain, got to the gym in my timberland work boots and soaked pants.
Fast forward five minutes and the person who is usually full of social anxiety working out in a crowd had discarded his work boots and was squatting barefoot, hitting a new personal best on every set. I went beast mode the entire session, my numbers on every exercise but the leg press went up and the headache passed and was replaced by a big smile and weak knees walking down the gym stairs.
I even got the confidence to talk to the way out of my league brunette who does provocative quats in these pink shorts that only cover half her bum and I made ehr laugh and not even at me.
edit* also thank you for all those who told me to bulk first, I think it is making a big difference.
