Notes: Slight movement on weight despite a holiday cheat for mom-made brownies.  The next few weeks should have fewer tempting gatherings, so I'm hopeful for more movement.  I'm feeling a little weaker in the squat, but I'm not sure if I've made my form stricter and that's costing me "strength", or if I'm having trouble maintaining strength with a caloric deficit.  Deadlifts still feel fine, so I'm hoping it's just better form.

Edit: My wife reminded me that I spent yesterday in a squatting/sitting/kneeling/bent-over position prepping a room and then putting in a vinyl floor in my basement.  It's possible that I was just a little sore from that.  Also, this is the blog entry for last week's workouts, when the squats felt okay.  I was remembering how today's felt, which concerned me enough to mess with my perception of space-time.
