OMG THANK YOU. I’m going to be on Pinterest forever now
I want to wear lipstick but I have no idea how to pick out a colour that will look good. I feel like it looks totally different on my face compared to my hand when I test it. I’m scared to ask the people that work in the make-up department at stores
Squats: 170 x 3 x 5
This was okay. There were a couple instance where my hips shot up first but the weight moved well
Bench: 95 x 4 x 5, 16 (AMRAP)
This actually went really well. Everything was pretty smooth and I got into a nice groove when I did the set to failure
Sumo Deadlifts: 260 x 5
My hamstrings felt dead but this was okay
Pull ups: 3 x 5
Lifting felt pretty good today :)
I think I need to buy a bra that actually fits me. I’ve been kind of just buying ones that kind of fit because I don’t know where to purchase my actual size. So I end up with something too small in the cup and a band that rides up. I did the bra measuring thing where you bend over. Where do people purchase bras that have cup sizes larger than a DD but have smaller band sizes? Online? Are there places in Canada?
Squats: 165 x 3 x 5
Bench: 117.5 x 2, 95 x 14
My arms felt so awful before I even started and my warm ups felt shaky. I was surprised I even got two reps
Sumo Deadlifts: 255 x 5
I think I set up weird because my arm felt really in the way when I was trying to lock out some of the reps. My leg cramped after the third rep so I had to shake it out. I was trying to figure out why these were kind of slow and then I remembered that I lifted Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday for this week and I jumped 10 pounds each day for deadlifts. That probably wasn’t the best idea. I’m still doing beltless pulls.
Back Extensions: 50 x 5, 60 x 2 x 8
I added these back in. I wasn’t sure where to start because I didn’t want to overdo anything. 50 felt like nothing. Even 60 didn’t feel like much but I’d rather start low. And I did 8 reps
