This is what's good about the WBB community - if somebody needs some sense slapped into them guys will do it, but when somebody's listening it's the most supportive group you can find.
Sessions are looking better but how come you didn't get 135 for 5 reps? If you got 130 x 5 last time, 135x5 should be very achievable. Aim high, push hard.
Happy Labor Day...

Comments: The bad news is that I seem to have come down with the flu, so I might be out of the gym for a week or more... I hope I don't lose the progress that I've made...
I've come down with a very nasty flu bug...
I've been sick for a week, and still not over it...
Hard to say when I'll be back in the gym....
I'm probably gonna have to deload when I return... I've lost about 5 lbs from not eating...
Blows monkey chunks, but what can i do?
Just make sure you hydrate and eat when you can.
To echo what Mark said earlier, just stick to a program for a while. Even though your coach wants you to do one thing, tell him what you are doing and have him work with you and your program goals.

We all have set backs dude, every swinging dick here has had something happen that made them not feel like doing anything, been injured, etc you name it, it's happened. The difference is that decision you make mentally that gets you fired up and ready to kick some ass in the end, that, soley, is the ONLY decision that matters. There have been days where you may feel like shit, but you have to get the work in, you've gotta keep progressing. For me there came a time when lifting wasn't optional anymore. I don't call in to work sick when I don't feel good, I don't lay in bed all day when I'm feeling down, so why the hell would I stop doing something that's so important? Yes I believe in off days, and I believe in taking rest when sick/injured, but when lifting becomes second nature, when it finally sinks in that this is something that is not optional, it's not a game or something that you're just doing becuase you're bored, that whole mindset changes with it. And if you're mentally equipped to conquer things, man that's when things start getting really good.

Are you working out alone? I think since I saw this journal in August, I never asked with whom you are training with.
You'll get there man, just keep setting goals for yourself and keep pushing. First step is 135lb squats.
I was doing 135 lb squats before I got that really bad flu, so I'm working my way back up to it...
I see a lot of people in the gym including women squatting 135 lbs, but they barely bend their legs and don't go down very far. I'm squatting more deeply to parallel, so its more challenging for me.
