Friday I went for a walk. Saturday I stretched. This morning I did the following:

Warm Up - 10 Minutes DDR, 12k Kettlebell Swings, Presses, Snatches
Kettlebell Snatch - 8/8 x 16k, 24k, 24k, 24k
Split Squat - 8/8 x BW, 10lbs, 10lbs, 10lbs
Renegade Rows - 5/5 x 16k, 16k, 16k, 16k
Grippers - Reps with the Trainer and #1
Block Weight Deadlifts - 5/5 x 25lbs, 25lbs

Due to the infrequent sessions, I feel my form has lost some focus. I dropped the weight on the split squats and the reps on the renegade rows to compensate. In all, I felt like the exercises did what I wanted.

Today marks two weeks without eating out. It is paying off, but  the process definitely takes effort. I am growing used to my home foods and normal sized portions again, which is part of the goal. I will not experience the financial benefit until the middle of the month, when it comes time to pay my credit card. It is rare I buy anything with cash.

Friday I posted my power rack, along with a few extras, on Craigslist. It really is not needed for how I train, and I'd like to have the space back. The extra money would be nice to have but honestly, I'll just end up saving it. At this point, success in life comes from putting work into making the most of what I have, not from acquiring more junk.
