Yess!! Just as I thought, I’m well within reach of my goal of running 3 miles in 21 minutes!!! I was 8 seconds shy of running in the 21 minute range! I even beat my last time by 31 seconds! despite the weight gain, I’m running at speeds I used to when I was 20 pounds lighter!
I’m starting to lose weight again, I’m now at 201. Down about 7lbs. Over the weekend I dropped to 199. First i weighed below 200 in 6 months. But I like my current range right now. Not too big and still have some definition

So I was at the gym today during my lunch break from work and the wierdest thing happened… well, maybe not that wierd but it was surprising!
So I’m doing my dumbbell bench press set of 130 pounds on each hand and afrer my second set I notice that I was actually lifting 130 on my left and 135 on my right! At first I thought maybe someone had switched my weights during my water break but then I remembered that something had felt a little funny.
So I said oh what the hell, I’ll just even it out and do 135s on both arms! And to my pleasant surprise I did the set with 4 clean reps! It’s crazy because it’s been a couple of months since I maxed out at 130. Like 2 or 3 months tops. I was NOT expecting or planning on surpassing that mark any time soon. But I did in a very short period of time and so unexpectedly. It’s amazing what our bodies can do. Sometimes we downplay our abilities and limit ourselves unnecessarily.
Wow! I think without a doubt i’ve entered into beast mode. Its official folks
I did heavy weights last night. So today at the gym I decided to go heavy again but different exercises than yesterday. I could not even lift one rep! I lowered the amount and tried again, same result. How embarrassing! Lesson learnt: give your body time to rest! Seriously I feel like all my strength is gone. Good thing I didn’t get hurt. Well my pride did, but whatever. Live to beast another day
i’m not even gonna lie, it would be nice to get all this attention at the gym lol
