Workout Wednesday: IIFYM Week 4

Happy Wednesday! This post is up a *little* late today, but it’s up!

Workout Wednesday

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?

    girl I feel you on the eating struggles. Since having the flu last weekend I’ve been basically eating toast in all forms (english muffins, french bread, etc) because bread and applesauce sounded appealing and stayed down. Today is my first day back macro counting since last Friday and going to be my first lift in a week. Hoping it goes well and I can get my butt back on track!

    xo, Maddy

      Oh my gosh! I hope you feel better soon. Good luck getting back into it! You can do it 🙂 (And PS I did tell my bf about your question so if you ever want to reach out to him with questions, go ahead!)
