Gym Buddies Suck!
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Not massive gains but gains. Between the first picture and the 3rd I have lost 25 pounds or so. In the last month I keep losing inches but have lost no weight. My biceps have increased size by 1 cm. I'm happy.
All this time I have been going to the gym all by myself, plugging along and doing my thing. A few weeks ago my husband decided he wants to be my new gym buddy. kinda cool idea, but I know my husband, so i didn't get myself super excited about it.
Monday was the big day. Kids went back to school. First day for hubs at the gym. He's been talking about it for 3 weeks. I drop the kids off at school in the morning and almost dread going back home because I am wondering what excuse he's going to have not to go. Sure enough- diarrhea. Ok so I agree to postpone until the following day. Pretty sure he won't want to kick off with leg day anyway, I decided to offset my schedule a full day for the rest of the week.
Tuesday comes: "Well I wanted to go on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. ......Fine so I went by myself and did arms.
Wednesday: "I don't want to start off with leg day." Ok then I will do leg day and you can start with arms. "I want us to do the same thing together."
OK PROBLEM: I lift 4 days a week. You want to lift 3 days a week. We will NEVER have the same schedule.
New rule: I will help you but you will go to the gym when I go and do what I do because your lack of discipline is not going to f*** up my progress.
Set your goals. Achieve them. Don't rely on other people to motivate you. Other people will hold you back if they don't have the same goals, motivation, discipline. Truth.
