Notes:

Getting close to my physical limits this last few weeks.
I did stall on my first lift to no surprise which is the overhead press.
Definitely going to deload on the OHP next cycle and build up from there.

Trudging along on my other lifts.
But they are close to stalling as well!

8 weeks into paleo and I started doing some cheat meals this last few weeks.
Still struggling on my only vice left which is smoking cigarettes.
Think I would have better progress once I win this last battle I try to win daily.
Amazingly enough, I am still physically improving!
Really excited for next month when I finally get my annual checkup and see the changes done by this paleo diet to my insides.

Also debating on switching to 2x/week sessions after this cycle due to nearing my limits and the need for extra rest, which I do not get enough.
