Happy Wednesday! This post is up a *little* late today, but it’s up!
Ooooh boy, I was on until about Sunday. The last three days have been filled with small binges and overeating, which is never good. Lots of stress + bad self-confidence this week = some eating issues. But I’m getting back on track!
These have been a little scattered. Basically the last two weeks I’ve only been out in the suburbs 1-2 days per week and since I don’t have a gym in the city (I workout with Ben at his, but it’s not an “open gym”) it’s been a little bit of a struggle. I’ve still been getting in at least three workouts a week, though, and I tested my upper body maxes with Ben last Friday (woo!) and then lower body (well, deadlifts) on Saturday which I talked about in my weekend recap.
While this isn’t a workout, I’ve also been walking to work when I work downtown. It’s about a 4-mile walk today (2 there, 2 home) so it’s some nice activity since I usually sit all effing day + in the car!
How it’s going:
Super well, minus the lack in workouts. I’m so proud of how strong I’ve become. I honestly thought it’d take me all year to be able to pull over 200# on deadlifts and here I did 3 strong pulls at 205# and 1 pull at 215# this past Saturday. It’s so crazy! I will say I wish I had a gym membership in the city because I hate working out at my work, but it’s a cheap membership and it’s convenient for now. When I’m based mostly in the city, I’ll have to figure out a gym then. For now, I’ll just have to take what I can get!
I actually haven’t weighed myself yet this week, but I know I’m up. My thyroid still isn’t quite regulated yet (though I am starting to feel slightly better) and I had a few small “binges” (I hate using that word…). I’ll probably weigh myself on Friday just to get a reading on where I am, but I’m pretty frustrated with myself. STRENGTH-wise, though … I’m feeling so strong! SO grateful to my boyfriend/coach for pushing me otherwise I probably would’ve never thought I can lift as much as I have been … even if I do pout every time he ups my weight (I’m the worst client ever).
What did you do to stay active this week?
