October Goals

Saturday, September 26th 2009

I looked at the goals for the "Sculpting Bodies Thread", e.g. "in so-many-months my arms will be chiseled." Right now I'd be happy not to have a gut that would make any biker proud. It is apparent that I have fallen off the wagon in all sorts of ways, but what's done is done (and unfortunately what's gained is gained). So, goals for October since October is almost here:
(1) weight nicely in the 150's
(2) bench press 100#; squat 150#
(3) jog/run/walk 2 miles in less tha...
