Notes:  Deadlifts are getting slightly tough, but I'm otherwise keeping up well enough with the progression this time around.  My forearm seems to be almost healed, though I do notice a scant bit of pain after my workouts, and I try to be careful during.  I mostly notice it when moving plates onto and off of the bar, rather than during actual, loaded exercise.  I have a compression wrap I put on after workouts now, which seems to help a lot.

Had a massive appetite this week, and took a small nutritional adventure for rice and potatoes at lunch on Thursday, and massive adventure for some Chicago-style stuffed pizza for Thursday's dinner.  Overall, it didn't turn out to be too huge of a setback, but I still feel puffy around the midsection.  I felt a lot harder the week before I started lifting again, which is sort of disappointing.  On the other hand, I've found a very strong correlation between how hard I'm lifting and how hungry I feel, so it's not terribly surprising.  I'd been trying to feed the extra hunger by burning through my protein powder (which I really ought not be using, I ought to be eating my calories, not drinking them, but I already have it in the cabinet...).  I'm going to have to make a sincere effort to get my extra protein with meat instead.  I might need to just roast a turkey breast or some chicken thighs or something and use it/them as pseudo-supplement.
