I'm back in the gym and need to be. I will have good results I know it.
Right now this is the one priority and the one thing I'm working on. I have a nice chunk of time to devote to this. I want to build a habit so I become totally regular at the gym and the training and good diet are a central part of my life.
Since I was injured at work I haven't done shit for like 5 months. I've really let myself get out of shape and I was feeling like total shit. Seriously 3 days ago I was sitting in self pity and depression about life. Was just regretful about the past and worried about the future. Felt fucking lazy. I'm in Thailand taking time off and not even enjoying it because of this feeling of fear and worry. So to basically rescue my trip I have to build good habits and get my strength and confidence back.
Joined a gym and felt fucking fantastic after the first day. The change in my mood was amazing. I felt great, confident, optimistic, positive, etc. Just from being active. I'm convinced that especially the older I get the more essential exercise is. I really need to become a gym rat. The kind of person that goes to the gym first thing after traveling. Never makes excuses for diet, is always planning meals, being healthy is a real priority. even when traveling doesn't miss a day. After seeing how my trip has been totally transformed and I'm having fun again just by hitting the gym.
So I have a short term goal for 1 to 1.5 months:
Do 12-15 legit dead hang outward facing grip pull ups. I always liked pull ups as a measure of strength because they're so fucking difficult. All the way down full range of motion no kicking like a little bitch
I didn't max out pull ups first day back, I did 5 sets of 3 reps... but I think if I woulda maxed I woulda been around 5-6. So I got some work to do.
A second goal I'm working toward is 40 push ups.
I'm doing a full body routine. Training as often as I can, with rest days when my body needs it. Focusing on body weight exercises when possible, and going pretty light since I'm just getting back and to avoid injury.
Push ups/alternative style push ups (sometimes sub with bench press)
Pull ups (outward facing grip)
Chin ups (inward facing grip)
Dips (both legit and using a bench)
Military press (dumbbells)
Thats the routine. I'm no gym expert... but this is what I'm starting with. I got a month or so to get in killer shape and build good habits. After that I gotta start making money again (but keep the gym going)
Right now this goal is like my money goal. I saved a bunch last year because I was committed. I will get back to having a money goal in the near future. But right now I have some nice circumstances where I can focus on getting back in shape. It is the single biggest factor for avoiding depression for me. Last year when I was working a physical job I was never depressed... as soon as I stopped working I got depressed.
Overall things are good and I got good discipline. I got money saved. I'm four months no porn. I'm in Thailand on vacation. I have a decent sex life for now with minimal effort. I'm back in the gym and motivated. After that it's back to the money

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
