Pump Pump pump it up!

Haven’t logged in a few days. We had a friend in town, I’ve been busy at work… and generally I’ve just been trying to get to bed and keep my life as care free as possible — Sometimes that involves not rushing to my blog at the end of every day. Yesterday’s bench session was very good again 🙂 Super happy to have completed all of my reps… this week with even MORE weight on the bar than last week! WOOP! Today’s active recovery was good, just a nice long walk with my husband and my dog. Diet has been fine, not as perfect as last week, but we can’t always have 100% perfection now can we? Nothing too offensive… just potatoes (which I really can’t get into being “bad”…. they grow out of the ground and they have a crap-ton of potassium) Anyway, gonna keep it short today because I need to stretch before bed to get ready for my morning deadlifts!
