I am back!  Traveled for a bit.  Hit the gym a few times, nothing too serious.

I didn’t end up working out much actually. Tried one gym I found, they were on me in about 5 seconds for taking off my shoes and putting chalk on. Plus no squat rack. I was sad. And kicked out.

So I ended up spending more time with my elderly mother at her fitness classes: her tai chi group, her seniors aquacize classes, just walking outside… I went pretty catabolic over these past few weeks. I think should maybe reset my weights, but I am still so close to the start that I will just say F it and redo my last workout and start over from that point. No resets, just a quick do over session or two.
Back at it today, the first day back is always the most lacklustre.

Light day, just the main exercises, redo my workout from before I left, just ease back into it.

notes: Got tired even faster on this one. I should have stopped on set 2 but I was stubborn, and pushed ahead one more set.

And that was that! Packed up my poop and came home. Back at it again tomorrow as I ramp back up.
