Haven’t visited the forum much lately. Gyms have been open for about a month now–however, I pretty much completely lost my drive to train. I’m still going to the gym 3-4 times per week, but my motivation is gone and I’m pretty much just going through the motion. My pain tolerance has dropped a lot: I can’t bring myself to dive into those high rep sets of lateral raises and all the good painful stuff. Haven’t trained legs in months too, outside of whatever stimulus they can get from some rack pulls I’ve been doing.
I’m hoping I’ll eventually go back to how I was before, but it’s not looking too bright for now. I’ve become mostly complacent with how I look, but at least I’m likely doing enough to maintain.
My diet needs some work too, as of now.
Luckily, on the upside I’m totally crushing the school side of things. This semester in uni is going great. I took 3 exams last week, and I got 30 cum laude at all of them. That’s roughly an “A+ with honors” on the letter based grading system. I currently have an average of 30.3 (30 = A+) and on Wednesday I’ll take the last exam of the year. I am currently the only student in my course (~200 people) that managed to take all 4 exams of the semester at once. For anyone curious, the 3 subjects were databases, software engineering, and operating systems. The upcoming exam is numerical calculus (which will be the sore spot of the semester but oh well).
If anyone remembers that my university also hired me as a web developer; they recently told me they’re looking to renew my contract for the next semester to I can keep working on the platform I made for them.
Overall I can’t complain.
