In the last week of December is smashed a few of my gym goals
Press up aim: 40. Achieved 28
Unassisted Pull ups: 1
Bench press Aim: 50kg. Achieved 42.5kg after two failed attempts at 45kg. And having done press ups, bench & dips!
Deadlift Aim: 100kg. Achieved 1x105kg. It popped up on my third attempt.
Squat Aim: 80kg. Achieved 1x95kg
At 69kg body weight, 20.4% body fat.
Absolutely stoked with my deadlift and squat achievements! It was scary…. I’ve never experienced weight like that on my back or pulling. When I started my fitness journey in April 2014 I couldn’t do one press up and didn’t know what a deadlift was!

2015 short term goals:
Press up: 40
Pull ups: 2
Press up 45kg
Achieve 17-18% body fat, drop some weight, without losing too much muscle / I don’t want to reduce too quickly as I’ll lose my strength.
The thing is – gym, health and wellness is a journey that doesn’t end. Setting goals helps with focus and determination.
