Ive been listening to a meditating/calming podcast at night in conjunction with stretching and feel like it makes a difference.

    Anyways, stop lying to yourself saying "ill stretch when I home" stay an extra 15 mins or cut your workout 15 mins short and stretch!
    I've seen a huge improvement in overall tension/stress after really committing to a meditation routine before bed the last few months, along with spiritual stuff too but that's to each their own. I'm also trying to focus on deep/mindful breathing during the day and being aware of/observing thoughts without judgement and just letting them be. Overall, it's been very helpful.

    Ive got this gadget called the Muse
    For meditation
    Measures brain waves and such then uses music / ambient noise to tell you you’re doing it wrong.

    Get pulls back in the high 5's low 6's. Get squats back in the low 6's.

    Continue with Micro degree.

    Get rid of this winter fluff with conditioning.

    Work on expanding my company. CoVid too a monster shit on it and we're down 40%. Continue working on getting that back.

    Just to get back into it. I've been out since 2017 owing to disability, two hip replacements & COVID. I've restored my biomechanical integrity to as close to optimal as it's going to get & am just waiting on a COVID Vaccine.

    Fitness goals. No strength goals anymore. I pulled 600 this past week and that'll be my last time trying probably ever. Took a whole lotta anger to get there lol. I benched 385 the other night and ill probably make sure there's still 4 plates in there and that'll be it. I'm happy with what I got at my age.

    Short term goal is to recomp, I've been at it about a month and its going well. Sitting at 255 and hope to stay somewhere around that. There's a tren run coming in the spring and should be really happy with where I'm at.

    Life goals. Man the only one I can make is to not **** it all up. Cuz I'm good at that.
    Size is the prize and swole is the goal

    My main fitness goals are to put on at least 10 pounds, and drop 3 or 4 % body fat. I would also like to add some more equipment to my home gym.

    Life goals are just gonna be to stay as positive as possible with all of the current BS going on. Get out for a few good ice fishing trips this winter, and spend as much time at Lake Powell as possible.

    My fitness goals are:

    - 230 lbs, 8%bf by July (I'm 5'9 and currently somewhere in 215-220 lb range and I'd say 12% bf)

    - Hit 400 lbs on bench, squat 405 x 10

    Work Goals:

    - Gross 300k at work (should be doable, I'm a realtor and already have ~70k worth of property commissions in escrow which should close by Feb)

    Life Goals:

    - Meet an actual nice girl who doesn't just want superficial shit who i can actually trust for once.


    Since the last one isn't all too realistic, i'll be happy making the first 3 happen.

    Fitness goals:
    continue the recomp I’ve been on for nearly 2 years. Dropped 3 inches on the waist while adding an estimated 15-18lb of lean mass. Probably 2 more years to get where I want to be.

    Life goals:
    Appreciate every moment even more. My son turns 18, graduates, and goes to college this year. My daughter is 16 tomorrow. My wife is going back to college next month. I’m taking on a 100 million dollar project at work. Free time is going to be precious, so I will dramatically reduce my screen time. I won’t be logging in here much, but I’ll be around.

    I just want to get back to where I was before COVID took me out of action and pulled 20 pounds of weight with it. Since I will be way weaker than I am used to being, I'm probably going to start back with light weight and a lot of reps and go from there.

    Fitness goals, get back into my pre-covid condition and then improve upon it. Hit and hold 16% to 18% BF, improve my leg strength and be more disciplined about workouts.

    Personally, I want to follow through on relocating from the US Northeast to the US South, greatly improve my sailboat racing skills and finish a sind business project to get something to market. Since I have a full time job this will all be a challenge. One thing I can do is be less condescending to others, which will be really hard because I'm much smarter than they are

    That's just the Florida accent.
    Achieving your goals is 90% mental.
    The other half is physical.
