So I'm gonna try to bench 335lbs on my next chest day at the gym. I have done 315 on repeated visits normally at the end of my bench press run, albeit only once per attempt. I've been adding new exercises to my workouts like push ups, cable flies, dumbell variations of regular exercises, and a few others. I'm actually proud of myself that at 375lbs I can do a solid 40 push ups in one go. I may go for broke next time I do chest and see how many of those I can bust out in one go. Funny thing...as a kid I could barely do 20. Weight lifting is changing my everything.
In other news, that lady I talked about having the hots for is coming back to NY next week. Think she's back til the end of august, but idk if I'm ready mentally to say or do anything. I'm far more confident around people (I don't feel odd answering the door without a shirt on anymore, so long as I have shorts on), but trying to get in the door with her....it seems so far fetched still. My sister has told me she doesn't go for white guys, and that she's into thugs, so I am DEFINITELY out of my element there. I dunno, maybe another week or two and I'll feel more in control of my own shit, especially if I bust out some larger numbers at the gym.
And of course, she'd HAVE to come back for August, the fire month of rpg gaming. 2 games at the start and then FFXIV at the end plus beta. I mean, a relationship should take precedence, but you're looking at a dedicated gamer who has been playing since before this girl was even born (only a year but still). It'd be like telling a football star to cut back and get a girlfriend...unlikely.
Man, nothing's ever easy.
