Sorry for the delay... I was kind of hoping that stress was over for a while, but it looks like that's not happening. Tuesday was a pretty stressful day at work, and it didn't even stop at night when I got home. The rest of the week may be pretty stressful, and next week also. … Continue reading Week 16 – Day 2: Streeeeess!
As I mentioned last week, I was wanting to see if I could break my deadlift goal on the trap bar.

After that, I did a little yard work and then relaxed. We went to … Continue reading Week 15 – Day 6: Clone Wars
Yes, that is an extra "f" in the title... This week has been one of the most stressful weeks I've had as of late. But I feel fairly proud of myself for turning to other methods of stress relief rather than drinking and food which were always my go-to before. Talking, venting, exercising, relaxing.
