I have had the most glorious two nights of sleep over the past few days. My spring “break” started on Friday (although as a PhD/grad student you never get real breaks), so the homework stress has disappeared, and the boy hopped a flight out east for his mom’s 60th birthday this weekend. Obviously I’ve missed him 😉 but it’s been nice having a whole bed to myself. I never really realized it but I think I am woken up a lot during the night just sleeping next to him. His own tossing and turning wakes me, and he tends to grind his teeth during his sleep which is surprisingly LOUD (even with earplugs).
This all in tow, I think what was causing my insomnia/restless sleep was probably stress (ding ding, Anna), because last night (without changing any of my normal routine) I slept straight through the night. Amazing feeling.
Workout of the day:
Squats – 3 sets of 10 @ 105 lbs
Push Up – 3 sets of 10
Seated Row – 3 sets of 10 @ 65 lbs
Step-up – 3 sets of 10 @ 25 lbs (6-up)
Prone Jackknife – 3 sets of 12
Now I’m reeeeeelaaaaaaxing on the couch watching some cheesy movie (Under the Tuscan Sun) and reading about stuff on Bodybuilding.com.
OH! And I have a progress picture to share – some muscle growth has been happening. Don’t have a before picture, but trust me, I was much smaller. My biceps always felt measly and thin to me. They are thickening out now and looking much stronger.
That’s all for now…hope you all had a great weekend!
