Lately I have felt as though I’ve been lacking some sort of goal or clear path. I really think I am someone who needs a clear cut goal to work towards just so I can get some sort of accomplishment when I reach it.
Originally, I had a goal of getting to 55kg. Then I hit a huge plateau which I really still haven’t been able to get past, though these days I know that’s a bit of an unrealistic goal for my body shape. So I think it’s time to shift into overdrive and push my limits.
Goal 1: Get to 20% body fat – part of me feels as though this is a bit of a stretch, but we’ll see. As I’m not really setting myself a timeframe, I will hopefully achieve this goal, even if it takes me another year.
Goal 2: Be confident in shorts – I love these shorts. I have never worn short shorts. Ever. This might seem like a weird goal to some, but I would love to be self-confident enough to wear these!
Goal 3: Do at least 6 reps of 45kg barbell squats – According to my bodybuilding.com BodySpace, my current 1 rep max for barbell squats is 43kg. I’ve never tracked squats I’ve done in the squat rack on my BodySpace and I haven’t tracked very many workouts through bb.com, so the data is probably a little off, but I think 45kg is a good number to aim for. This goal will probably take a while since there’s a huge difference between one rep and six, but you’ve got to reach for the stars!
So, onwards and upwards!
