this was an awesome workout. i am so glad i am ending the week on a good note - and, yes, you read that correctly - ending the week, because tomorrow the whole family minus the goofy dog is flying to texas to celebrate my son's first birthday.

wait, what? he's one? 12 months old? i can't. i just can't even. 

as a bonus gift to myself, in honor of his birthday, i managed to finally *get* the deadlift: proper form and breathing and everything. hence the uptick in weight - FINALLY. next week we will start training the deadlift seriously. i'm glad i have a trainer who prioritizes form over rapid but inappropriate gains, especially when it comes to back muscles. i need those to carry my toddler.

toddler? wait, what?

see y'all in a week!
