So the rest of Deload Week went as follows:
5x10 (was experimenting with using better form so I don't kill my elbows)
Leg Press: 5x15 (I don't remember the weight, but the idea this week was to take it easy, so it was pretty light)
Leg Curl: 5x10 (ditto)
Well, I'm looking forward to tonight at the gym. It's Standing Overhead Press Day, and I think I'll test my 1RM in that lift, then do some dips and chin-ups for assistance work, then do sprints for 20 minutes if I have the energy.
Today I ate as follows:
Tofu scramble (ate about 1/2 a block, saved leftovers for tomorrow
Oatmeal with peanut butter and milled flaxseed, went much lighter on the brown sugar than usual
1 cup of green tea
Six dried figs
Adzuki bean and kabocha squash stew with veggies
Hummus and a pita
Wished for leafy greens, but I forgot them at home
Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread
And after I work out tonight, I think supper will be leftover stuffed peppers. They're stuffed with quinoa, black beans, tomatoes, onions, chili powder, olive oil, garlic, and salt. I tried to sautee the stuffing with a lot less oil than usual and just add some more water when it got sticky. I also want some steamed broccoli and a smoothie with soy milk, strawberries, bananas, cinnamon, and ginger.
All right, I'm excited to lift heavy stuff!
