Spent yesterday doing meal prep for the week, slowly getting back into it.. started to also pop fish oil tablets daily & multivitamins every 2nd day.
Saturday started with chest, tonight will be legs - hopefully I get back into the rhythm again!

You may get more appropriate ideas from people if you say your goals also. are you doing a D/L comp?
Think about some 60% - 80% days also. this keeps your body familiar with the movements while giving time to heal

I despise oily food, so for me, just consuming the oil and getting over it was the least annoying way.

I used to do this too!
But money hasn't been too good lately so I've been on tight arse mode with the supplements...
Hopefully my tax returns gives me some money to spend on other stuff besides my car haha

now I'm in mega pain, saturday arvo couldn't get off the bed without the missus helping me out.

Maybe just ease up on the dead lifts for a while. doing some lighter work in the 8-12 range can really compliment a strength program well also. Rest up a bit though, you don't want to prolong your recovery.

Eventually got up to 180kg deadlifts with a waist bend and wrist straps, was doing about 5 clean deadlifts without needing to bounce the weight off the ground.. however since moving & house renovations I haven't been able to hit the gym in over 3 weeks..
I'm a little sad at the moment, but tonight will be smashing up the gym again. Probably start with chest, chest exercises are my favourite and hopefully that puts me the right direction again.

First session was a 5x5@120kg followed by a 180/190/200kg single, alright for testing the water I guess, second session was a surprisingly casual 5x5@150kg, with a disappointing mid-way stall on a 210kg single . Lame. Thinking of trying a 220kg single today... see if I've still got it! Chalk only, since I have no straps at work and neither own nor have ever used a belt.

I really need to focus more on the gym, don't seem to be as motivated as I used to be several years ago. Age makes you lazy, and the bottle of wine or several beers tend to come first after work, so it doesn't leave much room for the gym.
Loaded up on carbs today, had a snack pack for lunch (poor excuse)

Just came back from the gym and although it required a bit of effort than it used to, I was able to do a lock out some 200kg singles, but again stalled attempting a 220kg. Confirmed what I had already suspected, which is that my core is too out of shape to get the hips in, chest out and lock it. I have no issues getting the weight off the floor and maintaining grip, but my deadlifting posture is not 100% (my normal posture kinda sucks too), so there's a point of transition at which I need a tad more core strength to complete.
Something to work on I guess.

Hit the gym last night after a small feed of wholemeal bread, smoked salmon and random leftover vegetables.
Straight off the bat, went straight to dead lifts (I don't do any form of cardio warming up). No straps or waist belt were used, left them in my R33 which is at my partner's parent's place (doing house renovations, don't want to leave the car visible - will get stolen).
3x sets of 12~14 reps of 50kg (20kg + 15x2kg)
1x set of 12 reps 90kg
1x set of 12 reps 110kg
1x set of 8 reps 130kg
1x set of 5 reps 150kg
1x set of 2 reps 150kg (failed)
1x set of 10 reps 50kg
Followed by usual pull down, seat row business... didn't go too long either, but felt good to be back!
