Trying to scale it back

Sometimes things just line up in a way that make you notice. I have been going hard the last week trying to prepare for my trip and deal with being mostly incommunicado for a week. Have I mentioned I’m going to China for work? Apparently I haven’t told a lot of people. I talked to my mom yesterday and I guess I hadn’t told her I was going so she was shocked to hear about it. I think I delayed saying anything about it because I wasn’t sure the trip would be approved, but then after it was I still didn’t say anything. Oops. I think my mom is now afraid I’m not telling her things (somewhat accurate, but still).

Anyway, yesterday and today I did my workouts as scheduled, despite the crazyness. Wednesday I lifted, and pulled my back yet again deadlifting (mildly, thankfully). Argh. Today, 30 easy minutes on the elliptical and some yoga.

Squat – 10x45lb, 10x115lb, 3x5x155lb
Deadlift – 5x205lb, 2×235 :(

I’ve been working all day, going home, eating, and then working until bedtime. It sucks. (Yes I understand that there are people who live like this all the time– I don’t know how.) I feel exhausted and disconnected from my husband. I have only a couple more days before I get on the plane, so I’m resolving to leave work at work now. And try to get to bed early. Recover my back, spend time with my favorite person, and rest.
