Last night before the anniversary dinner, the wife and I went to lift. I did ME bench. The wife did.. basically the same (she does a lot more reps, and a lower volume of sets) We both warm up, and She does a couple sets. She hasn't done Barbell flat bench for a while, so she's starting kind of slow. The most weight she's ever benched 95lbs is loaded up, she asks me for a spot and cranks out an easy 10 reps. She gives me a look like 'WTF?' I tell her, "lets slap a set of wheels on there and see how it goes." She drops down and does a pretty comfortable double. That's a whopping 129% of her previous PR.. for a DOUBLE. She does another double. We slap a couple of 5's on each side, and she gives it a whirl, but she's not sold on the idea, and her head gives out before her body. I think with a solid warm up she's got at least 145.
I'm very proud.

We went out to dinner at our fave sushi place. We ended up running into some friends, so it wasn't quite the romantic evening, but we had fun. We got some anniversary cupcakes. We got our picture taken feeding each other minis.. again (we're 2 for 2!)
Watched Big Love, and went to bed.
