Thanks wonderwoman! I can definitely see some progress size wise as well!
I just talked to my artist the other week, and it looks like I'm finishing it up with color in May!

Legs

Squats
135 x 12
225 x 10
275 x 5 (Ass to the grass)
305 x 5 (2 ass to the grass, 3 - 3/4)
315 x 5 (3/4)

Legs felt good yesterday, today they feel like Jello, but well worth it.

Leg press (weight for each leg)
135 x 12
225 x 10
270 x 8
300 x 5 (PB)

Calve raises
260 x 15
300 x 12
340 x 150 (PB)

Leg extension
120 x 12
135 x 12
150 x 12 (PB)

Saw a lot of increases in leg strength this week, which is great. I'm off creatine for now, already lost a couple pounds of water weight, but my abs are now visibile which is definitely cool.
School is nuts, this week. Hopefully hitting the gym as much as I can!

Back

Deadlift
135 x 12
225 x 12
295 x 6
315 x 5
Ripped another callous, so I'm taping up my hand and investing in some stuff a video a new friend from here told me about. So I'm grabbing a porous stone, and some nice lotion (vegan friendly) and giving my hands an overhaul.

But for now I'll tape it up and hit the gym back tomorrow and see if I can get my deadlifts to 350 at least.

Shoulders and Back.
Taped up my hand, and it actually held together pretty well. I had to decrease the weight on some of my lifts just to keep the pain down, but all in all a solid workout!

RDL
185x12
225x10
225x8

Shoulder Shrugs
135 x 15
185x15
185x15

Bent over Rows
135 x 12
155x10
155x10
(Big improvement strength wise)

Seated Rows
130 x 12
135 x 10
135 x 10

Overhead Press
95 x 12
105 x 10
105 x 5
Workout tired me out today, trying to finish off my back workout from yesterday and a shoulder workout as well. So I stopped after the overhead press. I'll be able to do drop sets of shoulder press tomorrow anyway, so not a huge loss!

Had a band practice today, there was a bench and weights there. I ended up helping my friend with his form on a lot of lifts and helping him figure out a routine which was really cool.
Did some bench stuff, tracking just so I remember I did a little workout today.

Worst deadlifting I've done to date. My grip was super weak, I couldn't fight the doubt that was building in my head and I just didn't feel strong today. I fought through it, but couldn't get past my terrible mentality. Ripped a bit of my hand again, not as bad as my prior ones, but still sucks.

Shoulders

Finally back at the gym today after having a stressful few days with exams.

Power Cleans
135x10
145x5
145x5
145x4 (Failure)

Shoulder shrugs
145x12
225x10
225x10

My grip was extremely weak today, I'm attributing it to the fact I only got 5 hours of sleep and I've just been studying all week,

Shoulder Press
35x12
35x12
45x10

Shorter work out because I was beginning to sacrifice form for my lifts.

Legs

Solid 12 km bike ride to the gym and back.
Leg Press
135x12
180x12
205x10
230x5 (PB)
Next week, max out at 250.

Squats
135x12
225x10
275x5
295x5
Worked on my form a lot more today. My blood sugar was dipping low in my workout, and I wasn't feeling up to par. So I ended up grabbing a gatorade to raise it.

Calf Raises
280x12
320x12
340x12
Focused on my depth, a solid contraction and extension. Felt really good on these, my calves definitely got a solid workout.
I cut out the leg extension this week, I was feeling a low blood sugar after the calf raises. All in all a solid leg day.

During exams my diet hasn't been up to the level I would like it to be, but that's solely my fault. I'm trying to balance my diet and school, and the stress just gets the best of me sometimes. I bought groceries today, and had a large 1300 calorie dinner to bring in some of the nutrients I've been lacking. So that definitely helped me feel better. More effort into my health this week.
