Lower at Home

Last night I went for an hour walk with my wife. This evening I did a brief lower body workout:

Warm Up - Walk around sub-division
Deadlifts - 5 x 20k, 60k, 83k, 83k, 83k, 83k
Box Squats - 5 x BW, 16k, 24k, 32k, 32k, 32k, 32k
Grippers - 5/5 x T, #1, #1, #1, #1
Knee Raises - 8, 8

I am dragging due to poor quality sleep. The last three nights I've slipped into bed right on time for 8 hours of sleep - unfortunately I do not fall asleep instantly. Maybe if I get tired enough...

The project that entered crunch mode at work has continued to keep me busy. It turns out I can squeeze an hour of work in after I shower and before bed if necessary. I'm not terribly fond of the extra time, but the end is in sight and a quality product will go out the door. Those two factors make a huge difference.

Tomorrow I'll go for a run, Friday an upper session at home. My breakfast and dinner have been quality this week. Lunch still requires improvement. I did limit today's deep dish pizza to one slice and had some of the salad.
