    I was going to the pub about once a week or less, as a social thing, and I'm a light drinker so I'd generally just have one. But recently, it's been two, and maybe twice a week. It all adds up.

    My main barriers are 1) I have such a busy life that I barely have time to exercise or cook food, 2) I'm an emotional eater so a stressful day ends with a huge binge, and 3) chronic injuries make exercise difficult.

    I came to this site when i was doing kickboxing, boxing, judo, bjj, etc... And back then I weighed 135lbs (5'6"), I was strong and had good cardio. I was squatting 250lbs and could do a 10k in 45mins. But then I injured my hips/knees and had to stop training... Got depressed, started eating, started smoking (have since quit)... that was 10 years ago. Went up to 200lbs!!!

    Currently weigh 183lbs, running 5k is still quite challenging, and I'm physically weak. Firnly in the very overweight category.

    I've given up on grand lofty goals because I usually give up. I'm just going to take it one day at a time.

    100kg over head
    180kg Squat
    200kg deadlift

    Currently at
    70 ohp
    130 squat
    187.5 deadlift

    I think all but squat are achievable. I’m a bitch when it comes to squats.

    You expect to increase your ohp by 30 kg in a year? Have you been in 100 kg territory before, or are we talking improving your all time personal best by 30 kg?

    70 5x5 while half arsing my work outs. I really believe I can greatly improve on that. 85-90kg might be more realistic but fuck it. I’m going for the big 100.

    This is me. I'll turn 50 at the end of this year, and I'd like to make it through the year without some additional body part failing. I'm trying to balance that desire to not be injured with my desire to run, lift, and roll.

    Yeah I'm hitting 46 in a week or so
    Its the stupid shit that ends up getting u injuries too
    You hear that little voice, proceed to usually ignore it and brush it off as just brain gibberish.....then twinge something.
    For me it not usually exercising, but just everyday life or work ffs.

    So for me this year, while a goal might be remaining injury free it'll also be to stretch everyday for a decent 15 mins before I do any physical activity

    Seems like injury prevention is a common theme here. I just started a one month trial of the Carnivore Diet to eliminate my back and joint pain and adrenal fatigue. I'll do a write up on this subforum if it turns out to be successful.

    Goals for June 2019

    Get my weight back under 190 (Went 223->190->195 last year)
    Finish Spartan Sprint in under 1:45 (did 1:59 last year)
    5k in <30 minutes
    Chins/Dips: max set of 12 each
    Squats: 185x5
    Deads: 275x1
    OHP: 115x1

    My gym has no good flat benches so I don't have a goal for that. The #s are pretty conservative because my priority is the race so I really just want to make sure I squat or dead at least once/week to get some consistency back.

    1. Run 1000 miles (I’ve never been a runner, have done maybe 30 miles total in past 3 years)
    2. Deadlift 600 (475 currently)
    3. Squat 550+ (450 currently)
    4. Bench 375 (320 currently)

    I restarted lifting ~9 months ago, so I’m hoping I can continue linear progressing for at least a few more months, otherwise most of the lifting goals are probably out of reach for 2019.

    Goals:
    - Get to 73kg (currently 80)
    - Get to 5”9, optimistically 5”10 (I’m currently 5”7)
    - Be able to do 15 full pull-ups by the end of the year (current record is 5)
    - Be able to do 50 push-ups by the end of the year (current record is 32)
    - Get a job (part time) and start making money
    That’s pretty much it.
