    So... I was at the gym, right, and I was deadlifting, right, and I was getting ready to put on two 2-1/2# plates to move up to 130 - which was my goal today, and decided I would consolidate all the little plates into one large plate (my thinking here is that 45s are taller so I wouldn't have to lift as far - I was actually doing it to cheat a bit) and realized after taking a 25 and 2 tens off of one side that I still had a 5# plate on that side as well, which meant I'd just taken 50#'s off that side... 50 on one side and 50 on the other side is 100 (the bar weighs 45)... thinking this couldn't be right, I added the little plates again... Since I was unable to do the math in my head and get 125, I broke out the calculator and realized that instead of 125 lbs, I had just done a 5x1 with 145 lbs... See kids, math is important! And I totally shattered my goal.

    Barbell Deadlift:
    95 lb x 5 reps (+65 pts)
    115 lb x 5 reps (+75 pts)
    125 lb x 5 reps (+80 pts)
    135 lb x 5 reps (+85 pts)
    145 lb x 5 reps (+91 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+72 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+72 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+72 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+72 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+72 pts)

    Body Weight Lunge:
    10 reps (+15 pts)
    10 reps (+15 pts)

    Body Weight Squat:
    10 reps (+8 pts)
    10 reps (+8 pts)

    Running:
    0:05:30 || 0.5 mi || flat (+31 pts)
    0:05:30 || 0.5 mi || flat (+31 pts)

    Standing Barbell Calf Raise:
    135 lb x 10 reps (+25 pts)
    110 lb x 10 reps (+21 pts)
    110 lb x 10 reps (+21 pts)
    110 lb x 10 reps (+21 pts)

    Took my measurements. Disappointed to see there was no change since the last time (about 3 weeks ago). Quite possibly my body is holding onto water for muscle repair, but I thought for sure things looked differently in the mirror. Tape measure says differently, so I guess I keep on keepin on.

    Giving serious thought to going VLC again. I've been sort of just LC for a while now b/c VLC is a lot of work - mainly keeping protein in check. I'll take the rest of this week to consider it. I'll miss strawberries and cream as that throws me over the carb goal every time.

    Could be muscle replacing things, so measurements are the same for now, but you have some water retention. Keep at it! I don't think you should change anything too quickly. How long have you been doing the lifting for?

    I don't plan to change anything - except maybe clean up the eats a bit. I haven't been tracking lately so I'm sure my calories are off the hook. I've been lifting heavy for about 3 weeks. The only reason I measured is because things looked different.

    Oy... my back is SORE today. OHP on Tuesday followed by deadlifts yesterday equals MUCH core strengthening, which equals sore back muscles. Today is supposed to be a bench day. Might opt for a rest day or run instead. Running will still use my back muscles, but not to the same extent that lifting would. Rest assured, this isn't an "oh shit I hurt my back" pain. This is an "OMG I kicked my own ass" pain. Definitely DOMS, but in a place I'm not accustomed to feeling them. I'm used to DOMS in the chest, arms, abs and legs. Makes you realize just how out of shape your back is in when you do 45# OHP and your back muscles are more sore than your shoulder muscles... My shoulder muscles are feeling fine.

    Maybe I'll run and stretch today. I think that sounds like a swell idea.

    For $45, I ordered a cake pop mold (to make those perfectly round polka dots), 6 boxes of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake mix, and a 4 pack of Wilton brand food coloring paste. I have enough materials to make the cake for Makenna's birthday, AND a test cake to get the technique down. I can't wait! Materials should be here on Saturday. Sadly, Sunday is a busy day so I won't be able to make the cake this weekend - will aim for next weekend, test the process and then make a stellar birthday cake for Bearz on the 27th. I cannot wait to see how it turns out!!

    A gal I know lost her son in a car accident today. He was roughly 17. My sister and I used to babysit him when we were younger. I used to drive her to work when she'd lost her license (can't remember why). I'd go to her house, pick her and her son up (who was 2 at the time), take the boy to my mom's house where my sister would babysit him and then take her to work. She was a single mom and never told any of us who his father is. We haven't talked in YEARS - not even friends on FB b/c we were that far unacquainted at this point. Not even sure she'd recognize me if we bumped into each other in Walmart.

    Her son's car collided with an ambulance. Doesn't say whether the ambulance was transporting patients or not. There is nothing left of his car. The ambulance looks like it hit a deer and nothing more. I cannot even imagine her pain but I hope more than anything that he didn't suffer. And I hope with all I've got that she can heal her wounded heart quickly. He was her only child.

    How awful. I cannot imagine losing my 17 yr old son.
