Results don’t happen overnight. I’ve been working out 5 to 6 days a week for 3 months now.

We are currently at 195 bodyweight for me. My wife is at 153. My goal 185 hers 145 shes winning! lol
Keep Pushing Everyone! Enjoy your Weekend!
Im going to write about the scale today. That thing some of us are scared to step on in the morning. Sometimes I get frustrated with people online that think everything is about weight. This is ridiculous to some us that lift weights on the regular because we know that weight doesn’t really tell the whole story when you’re a lifter! I get pissed off at dudes online that talk down female lifters who are clearly in great shape for being too heavy. What the hell does that mean? lol I honestly think some of it is jealousy forreal. Some of those women can lift more and they’re jealous. The other thing is those people are obsessed with the scale because the famous health chart on google. You know the one that just puts the ideal weight for individuals based on their gender and height. That scale isn’t correct. Take me for example I am 5’8 and weigh around 195. Im not fat at all but I am overweight. I lift heavy and eat a decent amount of food to bulk then I cut to about 185. Which is still overweight according to the chart. I could careless honestly. Sometimes we have to ignore the noise and just stay focused on our goals. We can do it. Ladies and gentlemen You are capable of being in shape no matter your age height or weight. Stay blessed and keep going!
Below are pictures of my wife and I. I weigh 196 and she weighs 155 right now. Were both cutting to 185 and 145.
Got a nice workout in today! Chest/Triceps
I’ve started a 6 day training week. Ive been on it now for 3 weeks. Ive noticed a huge diff in my gains and my energy levels. Im on a better sleep schedule and my appetite has increased. Which is a good thing because I struggled with eating. My wife and I have been doing this plan together. Its working!
Today we did bench press, incline press, tricep extensions, front raises and side raises. With some crunches also and my wife likes to do military squats for atleast 4 sets. Everyday is leg day with her lol. Each exercise is done for 4-5 sets and 10-12 reps. Im not ego lifting right now. Focusing on form and endurance.

Goals are important! I never was a fan of excuses. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had conversations with people discussing the latest show thats on Netflix or Hulu. They always tell me how good it is and how many episodes they’ve watched in a row. Then immediately after were discussing ideas and plans to get back in shape or lose weight. What comes next always makes me laugh inside. “Time I just don’t have it” The most frustrating phrase for someone like me to hear.
I’m not saying that I haven’t fallen in to the trap of television, overeating, smoking or whatever unhealthy habit you can think of. Im not judging anyone but if you’re going to change your life for the better. You will need time! Making time for your goals is a challenge between work, family, and daily chores that just have to be done. It wont be easy but every goal will require sacrifice. Thats just the way it is. Want bigger arms? Lift bigger weights. Want to be a small business owner? You will fail over and over but its worth it. It will also require time!
I always get frustrated when I’m pulled away from a project or my workout routine. One of the hardest things in life to do is learn to say no. You will have to learn that word more and more when you start off on any adventure wether it be getting into shape, starting a business, etc. I came to terms with this years ago. Set Goals make time and Grind! Have a blessed day.
