So much to lift! so little time!

Haven't posted for the past week, so I'll recap while my computer is turning a 2 week task into a 30 minute one. My time at the gym has been cut short most of the time, which is a little frustrating. I finish my two core movements and I want to do some metcon/cardio/something additional, but then I look at the clock and realize I *really* need to get back to work. c'est la vie, I suppose. I'd go after work, but that's after the gym closes. Anyway, here are my past three rather short sessions:
