My Goals Are Neverending

Today was leg day!

Hopefully I'm not rushing into training legs again, but I felt good after my last leg workout, so I figured I'd try it again! I'm still going kind of light, which is SO hard for me to do.

I did front squats today with only 105lbs for 6 reps. Then I did one of my favorite but toughest exercises-bulgarian split squats! After not doing them for over a year when I did CrossFit, I'm still not back to the weight I used to be able to use. They are hard enough even without weight!
Here I'm just using a 25lb plate in one hand.
Just as a side note, I seem to get a much better leg workout with my tall socks and booty shorts, haha. ;)

So I was just thinking about some of my goals today...and after looking at some of my beach pics, I've come to the conclusion that I need a bigger booty. So it is now "project big booty" time!

My quads have definitely improved over the years and my butt has grown some, too, but I want it even bigger! My calves are a different story entirely-not sure if they will ever be anything but scrawny! I also want my shoulders bigger and rounder and a thicker back.

And as far as strength goals, right now I'm working towards being able to bench press my bodyweight 5 times. Monday I got 120lbs for 3 reps, and my bodyweight is currently around 122-123lbs. I also want to get that 100lb overhead press I've wanted for a while! My current PR is 95lbs. Just 5 more pounds-you wouldn't think it'd be so hard!

My goals are neverending. Everyone always says it, but that's because it's true-fitness is  journey, NOT a destination! You should always be trying to find ways to better yourself, and it doesn't just have to be about looks. Yes, that is a huge motivational factor, but you should also be continuously challenging yourself in your workouts with heavier weights, or just trying new exercises.
