It was a shitty week for lifting.

I had planned for more intense sessions as a personal holiday present to myself and was looking forward to all my gym time.

But as each day came, I found myself needing to wisely scale down my ambitions.

What I wanted was not necessarily what I needed.

Playing 40 hour work weeks for the past month significantly knocked off how much weight I can usually push.

Forcing myself to do more would have lead to frustration and perhaps even injury.

I’m realizing that most resolutions are like that.

Success does’t come overnight.

It comes through being consistent.

It means showing up and doing what you can.

Keep nourishing, keep resting, keep putting in the time.

And keep growing.
