Pickin up Heavy Things Again

I've returned to Wendler 5/3/1 as of today. I ended up taking a 4 month break from it during wedding planning, honeymoon, and then post wedding stuff. Now I'm finally ready to get it started up again.
I reset all of my maxes to well under where they were when I stopped last, so for the purposes of the workout my numbers look like this:
Squat 1RM: 150lbs
OHP 1RM: 100lbs
Deadlift 1RM: 200lbs
Bench Press 1RM: 150lbs

I started out with squats today and finished with 13 reps of 115lbs. If you aren't familiar with 5/3/1 you should check out this article http://theswole.com/swole/531-jim-wendlers-theory-of-strength/ to find out WHY I did 13 reps with 115lbs. It felt really good to be lifting again and I look forward to the 6 month mark when all of my lifts are ~50lbs heavier.
