Here’s last week’s recap and my goals for the upcoming week.

Last week:

  • Fitness
    • On Monday we worked to a heavy 1RM Power Snatch. I was not impressed with my technique, but got up to 220lbs.
    • I always talk about the importance of lifting safely over lifting heavy weight. On Wednesday of last week, I strained my back a bit on a deadlift. What stinks, is that the set before (405lbs for 5 reps) felt great, and my set-up for the last set looked good to me. Sigh.
    • My goal this week is to make sure my back feels stronger before picking up heavy things again. I’m not out here trying to get hurt!
  • Other
    • Grilled food and meal prepped for over two hours this weekend. Hoping that gets me through at least most of the week!
    • I finally started studying for my nutrition certification. I know it’s going to be a long process, but I figured it was a great day to start chipping away. Here’s to making a bit of progress every week!
    • I ALSO finally started playing on my DJ gear on Friday night. I figured it was a perfect place to announce that the potentially greatest distraction of the year began the day after I started studying by reading books… like a student. Wish me luck!

This week:

  • Be smart with training. Recover and don’t get hurt.
  • I’ve got a few really long days, so I’ll have to be more efficient with my time and waste less of it. Taking meals with me for the day at 4-something AM when I leave the house and won’t get home until after 8pm is annoying, but if I want to be healthier, I have to do it.
  • I will lose 3lbs this week (between tomorrow and Friday). It may seem like a random goal, but last week I had beer in the house (that I drank) and this week I do not. If I can at least keep myself moving a few days this week, this should be an easy one. Drinking alcohol doesn’t help with losing weight, but I would rather have a beer here and there then not. So I do. Only one month until my next vacation!

Alright, your turn. What’s going on with all of you?

Pic of the week is from my laptop. This is what it looks like when I decide to mix together three songs from Skrillex on my first day of DJing. Totally normal and I am definitely acting my age. Thanks.
