It’s been way too long since I’ve been on here!!! I’m sorry followerssss I’ve been spending a lot more time on Instagram (I have a fitness one @fittiephd, come follow me!) and haven’t been on here as much.
A LOT has been going down with my career choices and that kind of thing, mostly a lot of thinking and seeking out advice. Not sure yet but I’m considering not finishing my phd and moving on to other things. I feel as though I’ve lost my passion for science and I don’t think my phd is going to help me get it back. But I’m goin to work on it a few more months and maybe until next year to see how it feels. If I make it to year 2 I can earn a masters at least.
Lifting has been goin great!! Tonight I went to a diff gym with a friend and got soooo many good tips on my form from these lifting bros there! They said mostly my lifts look really good it was just little things I need to work on. My shoulder has been bothering me so my squat weights have been all over. But my bench is improving, I’m at 90lbs 5x5 now! And 65 for ohp which I was told today is impressive for my size although it doesn’t feel like it ;)
I’m considering doing different leg work until my shoulder heals.
I hope I can get back to this other gym again soon it was nice to meet new people who have similar interests to me and who are nice and encouraging. Going skiing this weekend too so I’m not sure what ill do Friday but it def wont be any leg workouts :) can’t be sore for skiing!! Maybe ill work on chest or back.
I’m hoping to start cardio soon to slim down for summer. On the 21st ill be posting my 1 year progress pics for lifting :)
Will post more soon!!
fit in a little mini workout… one circuit of fitnessista’s winter-shape up workout 2 plus some extra squats, rows and tricep kick backs, and abs. I kinda feel dumb for working out for only 15 minutes then stopping. Just not in the mood I guess. Should have gone to the gym but it was a weird day. At least I’m actually getting work done today as opposed to the last few weeks. My life has been weird lately.
