High Five Friday #13: Personal Bests
You bet it is
Before we get our High Five Friday party pants on I need to cover a few things first:
1. Apparently I need to try roasting my squash with the skin on? After yesterdays post, I learnt that the majority of you just leave the skin on! Next time I bake a squash I will leave the skin on and see what all the hype is about
2. My finals are over and I am done my third year of university! One step closer to the dream
And now that I am done studying, I will be back to my usual commenting on your wonderful blogs! I have definitely been slacking on the comments lately, sorry friends I really do feel bad when I miss out commenting on your blogs because I know the joy I feel when I receive comments on my posts <3
As sad as it is, sometimes school > blog commenting
But not to fear! I am back
3. I have learnt a lot this year; especially within the past month. I study very effectively with others! I studied for all of my final exams this term with other students and I definitely learn by discussing the material out loud with others! This is something I will have to remember for next year.
4. Tomorrow my vacation begins! I am really excited for my trip to Barbados, but I have to say… I may be more excited to see these two people
Alright, now it’s party time! Who’s ready for some High Five Friday celebration!?
This week’s HFF is all about personal bests!
I’ve come across quite a few personal records being broken this week and new ones being made and I think they need to be recognized because I personally know how exhilarating it is when a new personal best is made Just this week I squatted more than I ever have before.
It’s definitely all about the mindset for me. A few times this week a grabbed a weight that I was scared of and then ended up surprised myself! Sometimes you just have to tell yourself that you can lift the heavier weight. Believe you can do it and you will
A high five goes out to Alexis! This girl reached a goal that I am currently working towards – unassisted pull ups! She was able to an unassisted pull up and capture a picture of it, too! Check out her exciting post here to read more about her success!
A high five goes out to Alexandra! My jaw dropped when I read about her new personal best – an upright row using 70 lbs.! Can you say inspiration!?
A high five goes out to Tara! She reached a new personal best with her deadlifts this week (even while she was feeling a bit under the weather!) and I couldn’t be more happier for her!
Reaching a new personal best is a big deal because sometimes it takes forever to get there. If you were making new PR’s in the gym every week you probably aren’t pushing yourself as hard as you could be So, if you didn’t make a new personal record in a while don’t feel discouraged. Be proud of what you are doing and where you are right now. Keep working towards your goals and you’ll keep making progress
I know we all work hard, whether it be in the gym or not, we all deserve a high five for working so hard each and every day to reach our goals!
