Workout Wednesday: IIFYM Week #8

I skipped over this weekly post last week when I had the stomach flu, so it’s time for a workout update!

Workout Wednesday

Macros:
These were obviously off all last week. I was on track on Monday, then it all went out the window when I got sick on Tuesday morning. I didn’t start tracking again until this Monday.

Workouts:
I actually didn’t workout for a WEEK which is crazy for me. I worked out LAST last Saturday with Ben, which you can see in that weekend recap, but Monday I was feeling so exhausted (the preview to my sickness) so I skipped. Then Tuesday-Friday I obviously wasn’t getting in any workouts. Saturday Ben and I finally got in a workout (did I mention he had the same stomach flu?!) though I just lifted “light” deadlifts and did some sumo squats. Still felt good to get back into it, though!

So far this week I’ve been on track. I’ve started more of a hypertrophy section to my coaching with Benย which I’m enjoying so far. Monday was an upper body (strength) workout, yesterday was lower body hypertrophy and today is an upper body (pull) day. Hoping I can get that in over my lunch break today!

How’s it going:
It’s going. The sickness definitely set me back. I ate what I could and then by the weekend when I was feeling better, I ate ALL the things. I definitely need to nip things in the butt. Ben and I were chatting about cutting my calories last night and being more strict with treat meals, at least until I get to a more comfortable weight for my height. My best friend from Milwaukee is coming into the city tomorrow night – Saturday, so I won’t be tracking or working out strictly then, but there’s no excuse after that! I want to be feeling my best for summer!

Progress:
I’m actually down about a pound as of Friday, but that could’ve been from the lack of good food besides rice and crackers. I’ve been feeling extremely bloated the last week and we’re still trying to get my thyroid medication figured out. I’m also trying to cut back caffeine to once per day, then hopefully to only once or twice a week as a treat. I’m about 3.2 lbs since we started this 8 weeks ago and while I know weight isn’t the only progress-checker, I don’t feel any better. I don’t see muscles peeking through. I still feel like I’m at an uncomfortable weight. So, tiime to kick it into high gear! I don’t have an exact goal, but we do have a wedding in early June in Nashville and I’d like to AT LEAST be feeling a bit more comfortable with my weight and beat the bloat by then.

What have you done to move your body this week?ย

    Glad you are feeling better! Sounds awful! So far I have just run a short bit outside and did some exercises at home. I plan to get to OTF and the gym tomorrow and Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did a run on Saturday, a walk on Sunday, and then didn’t do jack until Friday. 6 am yoga sculpt and 5 pm kickboxing. For some reason my foot hurts, so I wanted to run today but I can’t imagine that when walking across a parking lot is slow/painful. (Yes, I’m a touch cranky).
