What a year!! I’d say this, my 30th year, has been one to remember for sure! I have had my lowest lows and my highest highs this year. I have no idea why it all has to happen at once, but inevitably…it does. My bf and I have been together for five great years. Like any other couple, we’ve had our share of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. All the hard times lay the foundation for a long and happy future. And the good times make everything else that much more worthwhile.
Last weekend, after we put our Christmas Tree up, my bf made a formal request to have my hand in marriage. He produced an insanely beautiful ring and asked me to be his wife. I was overjoyed. There were honestly days when I thought it would never happen, but it did. I couldn’t be happier. It’s a great way to end what has turned out to be a really tough year. I am so grateful for his presence in my life and am truly looking forward to the joys of this next chapter of our lives…whatever it may bring 🙂
On another note, I finally had a good lift yesterday. For the first time in a long time, my squats felt good. That’s as far as I’ll go because I don’t want to jinx myself ; ) I did 5×3 at 195 pounds. And then, by the grace of all the holiness in the universe, I did NOT have to deadlift yesterday. I was so happy to have the week off from heavy deadlift torture, and my back is equally as ecstatic today. I did do some heavy RDL’s, but that still easier than standard deadlifts. Then it was on to some heavy reverse hyper. I actually did 70 pounds which I thought was pretty darn good. And that was it, short and sweet. Tonight…bench press torture….here I come!!!
