My life as a woman, wife and mother.

MAX Week!

on August 18, 2014

Quick recap of the weekend. Saturday morning I worked out at home. I went to a picnic with my girlfriends and had a nice afternoon of chatting together. That night L played in band at a fundraiser at the ball field.

Sunday I walked on the treadmill and worked out with our new (to us) Olympic weight set. Awesome deal! It’s worth about $400 and we got it for $125 off Craigslist. We then listed our old weight machine and got about a bazillion emails about it. I’m hoping it’s gone from the driveway when I get home today. I ate crappy yesterday, but such is ilfe.

This week at the gym is MAX week. Today was deadlifts, I’m going to feel it later on today.

My new max is 200#! I went up by 5# from 3 months ago and up 45# from a year ago! That’s a 30% increase according to Ben. It was wonderful to get a new max. Tomorrow is the push press, I’m hoping to make 100# or more on that one!

Today I work from 8:45-1 and it’s my co-workers 20th anniversary! I have errands this afternoon and they may be having some friends over later on.

Enjoy the day!
