Question with 5 notes

Anonymous said: do you have trouble with following through on stuff? If so how do you deal with it? I tend to stick with things for like a month then get bored

I have to have an end goal to stick with something. When I was running, it started as a sub 30 5k, then complete a half, then complete a half under two hours, then run a marathon, then run a marathon in 4:30…once I hit those goals and I knew I’d hit a wall physically, I chose to switch it up. But I couldn’t just lift to lift. I researched figure competitions and powerlifting competitions. The powerlifting appealed to me more than figure, but maybe one day I’ll make that switch too.

So I had goals like a body weight squat and a 225 dead and 100 bench. I’ve hit them, so I change my goals. I want a 200 squat, 115 bench and a 250 dead. So I work to reach those goals.

The first time I did paleo, 135 was my goal. I hit it and maintained for about three years. Then I started lifting. And stopped running. Now, with paleo, my goal is 150 so that I can easily cut to lift at 148 again. Or whatever to USAPL equivalent is.

So I guess to answer your question, yes. I have trouble sticking with things if I can’t see what my end goal is. Otherwise, I’m pretty dedicated.

I’ve been off paleo since Thursday night, but I’m reeling it back in today. Eggs with guac and bacon for breakfast, but first I have to get out of bed.

Good thing it’s a professional development day, because I have no voice. I tried a sleep app on my phone, but managed to turn it off around 230.
