nutrition's been good. finally pulled my head out of my ass after getting in a blah/negative place last week.

for me it's pretty much half mental and half just making myself go through the motions of doing the right things to feel better even when they sound like the last things on earth i wanna do.

and i finally reminded myself that if you want the good things in life you'll never get them by focusing on the bad. period.

got in a quick workout....

hip mobility
bb fsq: 60 x 8; 90 x 5; 125 x 3; 145 x 1, 1, 1
low handle trap bar deadlift from deficit (plates): 140 x 8; 210 x 6, 6

short and sweet. just trying to get back to feeling good and positive and on top of the world.

off to work. yay.

Aww, Deja! Glad things are looking up, mama.

Sometimes it is work to get your head in the right place, boy do I know it. But life is short, sometimes you just gotta let things go.

At any rate, good on you for keeping the eats tight and hitting the gym. Keep plugging!
