Another goal met

Tonight I deadlifted 200 lbs 5 sets of 5 with 3 minutes rest between each set, felt good not just to lift the weight but to be setting and making personal goals. Saturday will be another goal reached, the first week of exercising for 3 days, for the last month there have been so many different things that got in the way but I am determined to start meeting these goals.

So, here are my goals for right now. First, is 12 weeks of exercising 3 days a week. Second, squatting 200lbs for reps, at 150 today so adding 5lbs per workout with no setbacks 4 weeks from now I should be there. I have to decide if I am going to continue adding 10 lbs per workout on the deadlift, if so I will be hitting 300 lbs in 4 weeks, and I may drop down to 5 lbs if it gets to be a struggle. Third, continuing to bench press, because I have nerve damage in my right arm from the spine outward so currently at 105 lbs today and my goal is just to keep pressing forward to get to 150 lbs for now.

On top of these goals, I am giving up ice cream for lent which started yesterday. Several years ago I stopped putting sugar in my coffee for lent and went to straight black strong coffee and have never regretted the choice still sugar-free to this day. Well there are my physical goals for the next 40 days and 12 weeks respectively. I may also start adding long walks to my weekly routine just to get some of my muscles loosened and stretched.
