Never stopped lifting. Just haven't logged it. Making some post workout fruit leathers for the days I can't make it straight home to eat.

This is what I use for my high carb (with my protein powder) post workout shake: http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/cytospor ... 7vNrPldWSo

Has no taste (at least this one. I see they have many flavors - but I do not need artificial flavors to get it down past my tastebuds) and dissolves instantly in water. Leaves one feeling very satisfied for hours after a workout. Sometimes I will put in a tablespoon of coconut oil for the MCTs also - as this shake has no fat except for whatever is in the protein powder.

My funds are extremely limited for a bit longer. So homemade fruit leather or plain fruit is my only option at the moment. I don't complain either :)

Fruit leathers are good! Though being summer I go for just the plain raw fruit lately.

So what are doing for lifting lately? are you at a gym? or being creative with the outdoors?

At the gym. changing up every workout, 6 days a week only because legs day either my quads are sore or my hamstrings are so going to isolate them. Looking back at some logged workouts I see my numbers have really jumped. Like benching 135 lbs unassisted now :)

Here is today's back workout:
Straight arm pulldown: 1 set 30 lbs 20 reps 5 sets 50 lbs 12 reps
Wide grip pulldown: 4 sets 75 lbs 12 reps
Low row: 1 set 45 lbs 12 reps 3 sets 55 lbs 12 reps
Underhand pulldown: 1 set 60 lbs 12 reps 2 sets 75 lbs 12 reps 1 set 90 lbs 12 reps
Seated cable rows: 1 set 75 lbs 12 reps 2 sets 90 lbs 12 reps 1 set 105 lbs 12 reps
Narrow grip pulldown: 4 sets 45 lbs 12 reps
1 arm dumbbell row: 2 sets 40 lbs 12 reps 2 sets 45 lbs 10 reps

For some reason the weight seemed heavy at first and then light so kept upping my weight and kept the reps the same so I could work on form.

Not going to stop as long as I can help it. Everything is slowly starting to get back to normal just a quiet lil church mouse on the posting front.

So been busy with work but still up on training. Today I have lost my appetite as I found out a dear friend of mine committed suicide last night although no one is answering my questions. I don't know how true it is so keeping my eyes open. Even joking about it kills my appetite. I literally had lunch ready to eat found out and put it in the fridge..... So if it turns out to be true I am going to do a show in her honor since that was one of the last things we ever talked about together.
