Mastering Business and Health Goals Complement Each Other

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RE/MAX Executive Realty 104763

Long before the sunrises, I’m at the YMCA every morning, but on Sunday, it doesn’t open until 7:00am.  That makes today feel like a “lazy day,” but I got there!!!  I’m psyched that I did.

 

I decided to go full force and push to improve the amount of weight I use. My greatest challenge has always been the overhead cables.

 

The photo is an old photo with much lighter weights, but I wanted to show overhead cables for those who are not familiar with them.

 

 

Today I did 15 reps at 35 pounds, and then decided to test 37.5 pounds.  I was able to pull that weight ¾ of the way over my head and then I “hit the brick wall.”

 

 

Those cables were not moving another inch. It took me almost 2 years to build up enough strength to pull the 35 pounds out and do 15 reps. It’s tough to keep increasing those goals at my age!

 

My goal is 40 pounds. I hope I can master that while I’m still in my 70’s. LOL!!!

Proud of you Barbara, I wish I could make myself get on the mill more and get more walking or running in and drop 15 pounds.

BarbaraT- those were always hard for me. When I first began going to the gym many many years ago, I got on the stationary bike and was struggling. The man on the bike next to me said "Do 5 minutes today then tomorrow, ride for 6 minutes." I was soon up to 45 minutes without even blinking an eye.

So powerful you are! And always reaching further!!! Love it so much. That's also one of the things I love about lifting weights--it's such a direct way to show improvement and success. I have always enjoyed it. Larry and I have our own gym in a Tuff Shed and even when the temps are pretty dang cold we do head out there. I also LOVE to run outside with the dogs! And those hills I take are killers. I'm a believer in giving yourself small goals, one after the other because I feel more successful that way. Always checking in with my body. Can I push it a bit further? I check in and if it's there, I DO it! Immediate reward! The will is worth more than the skill. Ali!!

That looks like a fun challenge.  I didn't know what overhead cables are until you described it.  For me, overhead cables are the stainless steel cable I use for clothesline, and I'm using them every other day to hang up laundry!
