Dieting a bit more, leg day

Mon, 12 Jun 17

Squats: 135x5, 225x5, 315x3
Leg Press (plates): 3x4p x15
Leg extension: 4x130x15
Kettlebell swings: 4x20x25

I'm trying to knock a few more pounds off now that I'm getting accustomed to my routine.  I am at 203 right now, down from 243 in January.  I'm closing in on getting rid of the love handles and little pouch of gum in the front.

It's demoralizing to lose strength though - I know it's only transitory, but it gets inside my head and freaks me out.  I found the 315s really hard - part of it is that my back has broken out with bad acne and it really hurts.  The skin where the barbell has sat on my shoulders over the years is quite tough and the acne gets cystic.  I have no family doctor at the moment, so I don't even know how I'm going to get it treated.

Sorry to ask you to verify, but the sunglass spammers have been going crazy.
