Full Body

This afternoon I kicked off my vacation with some Family Guy and an hour lifting weights:

Warm Up - 12k Kettlebell
Deadlifts - 8 x 135lbs; 5 x 183, 183, 183, 183
Front Squats - 8 x 20k, 63lbs, 40k, 40k, 40k
Bottoms Up Kettlebell Press - 7/7 x 16k, 16k, 16k
Grippers - 8/8 x T, 5/5 x #1

I felt a little drained from the workout two days ago. I'd like to make an A / B scheme work, training every second or third day.

I made it through the short work week without eating out and expect to hit my initial goal of 2 weeks without eating out on Sunday. I see no reason not to continue the trend. I have more time at work, am saving money, and have more energy at the end of the day.

Hopefully this weekend I will get my power rack into the basement. The area I am lifting in right now is graded towards a drain, so I have to choose between my toes or heels being higher on each set. I'd prefer to lift on a level surface.
