Everything Went Wrong Today Except...


#1

...I set a new PR on deadlift :slightly_smiling:

So first I'm completely out of protein, BCAA's, Carbolin-19, Alpha Male, everything and anything.

My work makes me go to some pain in the ass ALL day computer training,

On my way home my brakes BREAK! Yea so I somehow made it to Midas and it's costing me $600 bucks to repair plus the taxis rides as I just moved up here and don't know a single person to bum a ride with while it gets fixed.

So yea I just graduated from college and haven't gotten my first pay check yet, so 600 bucks but a massive strain on me financially, but I digress.

So I make it to the gym and pull 415lbs. I'm down to 180lbs body weight so I'm fairly pleased with that pull!

Now hopefully I wont miss the fedex man AGAIN and I'll get my Metabolic Drive so I can put my weight back on!

This is why, no matter how busy you get, you should never stop lifting weights.

Congrats on the PR!

And CL has a great point. I could have a crappy week, or month, and if my training is still going well, I'd be okay, but I recently took 2 months off from lifting, then another month after injuring myself from starting too heavy, too soon, and I've never felt worse.

Now that I've been back at it for almost a month, I'm kicking myself for not waiting a couple more months to move (which was the reason for cancelling my gym membership, and getting lazy).

Anyway, look at the bright side. You should be getting a paycheck soon (hopefully not 3 weeks, depending on when your payday is), and you have brand new brakes on your car.

I couldn't agree more with you guys, after hitting the PR I was feeling great again!

Haha my damn company pays us monthly. Worst idea I've ever heard of but oh well.


#5

Is this uncommon over there? Almost every employer in the UK pays monthly...

Congrats on the PR.

Not really sure, previously I worked for the Government or government contractors and they pay biweekly. I work for Bosch (a German company) so that's why I'm on the same pay schedule as you Europeans. In fact I have less than a year left in the states before I move to Germany.

Thanks for the congrats!


#7

It's been bi-weekly at every professional / office job I've had (in the US)


#8

Yea, getting paid monthly would SUCK. I've only ever been paid either weekly, or bi-weekly.


#9

yea it makes planning the bills, food, supplements, ect a real pain in the ass! I just pay all the bills in advance as soon as I get paid.
