Just got home from uni. Here's what $20 gets me from the fruit and veggie co-op that my student association runs. They do the shopping in bulk and it changes every week, so there's a bit of variety.

I'm hungry.. gonna go eat something.

12/09/08 Good workout today.

Squat 5 x 5 x 95 kg /209 lb
Barbell Clean & Overhead Press 5 x 5 x 35 kg / 77 lb
Deadlift 3 x 5 x 60 kg / 132 lb
Pullups 5 x 5
Seated Row 5 x 5 x 63.5 kg / 140 lb

Notes -

I love squats!
Need to work on deadlift form before going heavier
Pullups are getting easier, finally!

Sipping on a smoothie with mixed frozen berries, rice protein and rice milk. It's delicious!

Incline DB Press 5 x 5 x 24 kg / 53 lb
One Arm DB Row 5 x 5 x 34 kg
Dips 3 x 10

Today I was feeling pretty tired. I think the combination of waking up earlier than usual, going to classes for 5 hours and not eating enough during that time, then going straight to the gym was the reason. Still manages the same weights as last time, so hopefully I can progress further next time.

Thanks :) Glad I helped to remind you too.

I've had a sore shoulder these past few days, so I decided to give it a rest. I should be back at it tomorrow though, because it's feeling almost 100% again.

My legs got a good workout today though. I met up with a friend and we went for a long walk up and down some huge sand dunes. Lots of fun!
