    kathy's lifting journal

    some may remember me. i stopped lifting when i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and went on effexor. i finally got off effexor (cold turkey. it sucked!) and now have the desire to lift again. so here i am.

    i am doing a hobbled version of starting strength because i am nervous about a joint flare up. i started with squat and bench at 95# and have done 5 reps of deadlift with just a plate.

    i plan on going up 5 pounds every session for squat until i fail. i suspect i will be able to get to 200 before i fail, but we will see. my body is different now.

    also i gained 50 pounds and i wasn't dainty to begin with. effexor was a real ******* and left me with a lot of clean up duty. LOL

    anyways

    Today
    squat - barx5, 65x5, 85x5, 100x5x3
    bench - barx10, 65x5, 85x5, 100x5x3

    in and out.

    food
    1910 calories with only 101 protein. i am sorting this.

    So happy to see you back again, and back lifting as well! Ugh, sorry to hear about the health and Effexor issues, that's not good. You're a tough chick though, you can deal with anything. I have confidence in you, looks like you're off to a great start!

    G-dog!!! IN! What, log was started on 3/4, hey where was my email, fax, and smoke signal about this?! Haha sorry I didn't realize you started a new log. Good to see you back at it. Muscle memory is a beautiful thing, you'll be back at wts of death and destruction in no time my friend.

    Go squat that plate with such a Spartan warrior rage that it runs to warn its other plate buddies about you!

    You are gonna make it.

    Bench Press: 200x1
    Deads: 315x1
