I'm motivated by simpler things.
I've always been cursed with the "Just friends" sickness. Despite how much I try I always end up being stuck in the vortex of ending up as friends with girls that I have interest in. Is it because of the weight or other things? Hard to say, but weight defintiely has to be a core issue. I mean how many girls want to be friends with like Isiah Washington or Shemar Moore?
Either way, I want be fit to spite the girls in the past. Yes its petty, awfully petty. But highly motivating me. Everytime I'm on the treadmill I think of my upcoming 10 year high school reunion and envision the looks on their faces. With every bicep curl I think of how I would turn them all down with a smile.
Honestly those thoughts have motivated me to lose weight in a way that nothing else ever has. I think these are the things people never admit to themselves and fitness. That sometimes you do it just so you can be smug, and is that really so bad? I don't think so.
So anyway onto the actually fitness part. On W2:D2 I rested as I was still sore from the previous day and work. But today I was back at it. The fruits of my labor in my strength training is starting to pay off. I precedded today to find my max on my weights. I think I've hit my max on everything except Leg Press (because I maxed out the available weights on the machine).
From what I've read if I want to build strength I shouldn't be able to go past 8 reps. I surpassed it on some of the weights I did but I think I'm going to find a weight and it to 20. Once I can do 20 for a week then I'll step up another 10 pounds. My muscles have never felt this big and powerful. Once I've dropped the fat from them I think my arms are going to be super sexy.
