Positive December day 2

It’s late here in London, but I’m determined not to slack off on this positivity thing because I’m gonna be positive, dammit. Ahem.

I didn’t work out today, so it’s a short one.

Every year my gym holds a Christmas competition, and every year (bar one) I’ve not been able to make it due to other commitments, or recovering from an operation. This year I thought I was going to be able to make it but…. nope. Turns out it’s going to be on a day when I’d arranged lunch with friends (months ago, so I can’t change it!)

I admit, I was gutted when I found out. But, I’m looking on the bright side: on November 22nd I qualified for the 2015 GBPF British Classic, for the third year in a row. I am insanely grateful & proud that I qualified, and with a great new total of 267.5kg (the qualification total is 245kg).

It was a long hard 3.5 year slog to qualify the first time, but this year I qualified from my opening lifts alone, which is amazing. I never ever want to take it for granted that I can qualify & compete at the British.
