Working Out: Feb. 6th

I had a super great workout today! I PR’d my squat at 185 lbs! It was really heavy but I was totally able to do it. I think it helped that I wore my “I hope your day is as nice as my butt” shirt to the gym.

Ben recommended I take some weight off and try totally bottoming out on a squat so I know what that feels like, since I’m hesitant to go down to far in case I lose control.

135 pounds felt so light, and it was much easier to go down to parallel and then go “ass to ankles” as Ben says. I love doing squats with this much weight. My bench presses have also been getting better.

One thing I noticed this week is that my confidence has been increasing a lot. I feel like I’m finally getting my body back, and I started getting excited for summer and *gasp* bathing suit season. I haven’t bought a new bathing suit in like 4 years; I think this year I will deserve a new pretty one 🙂
