Workout Wednesday: IIFYM Week #10

Workout Wednesday time!

Workout Wednesday

We did bump my macros down (about 100 calories a day) and I’ve been on track for part of the week … and then Thursday-Sunday, I fail. 🙁 I’m working on it! So far this week has been okay.

My workouts have been a little all over the place. I’ve had to work-from-home a few times (so I don’t have access to a gym) and I was sick to my stomach last Friday so I walked to the gym and then Ben and I decided it was best I didn’t workout anyway. But the workouts I have gotten in have been amazing! I can’t wait to get my OWN gym in the city (meaning a gym that’s not associated with my job OR Benjamin’s job) – soon!

How it’s going:
It’s going pretty well, actually! I feel like my body image issues are getting a little better. It helps having a boyfriend who is extremely fit, yet still finds me incredibly beautiful. It’s hard to be so down on myself when he’s constantly telling me how beautiful I am. So… props to the boy. 😉

As far as workouts/food, I’m still working on it. But I’m getting there! It’s been stressful since moving to Chicago and finding out the job I’m working in just isn’t the right fit. That negativity just leaks into other parts my life.

I actually was up about a half pound again last week – grrrr. I’ve been really struggling with digestion, which obviously doesn’t help. Even if I’m eating well, if nothing is … coming out … (I’M SORRY, TMI) then I’m not exactly going to lose any weight. I’m still hoping that I’m under 130 lbs by June 1. That seems to be a big plateau for me. I know weight isn’t everything so I’m not focusing on that entirely, but the weight I’m in is a little to uncomfortable for me!

How’s your workouts/eating going this week?

    I hate being constipated, haha. It almost never happens, but when it does, it is miserable. I poop way too many times a day and if I even go one without going, I feel like I’m going to explode. That sucks about your job. I gathered from a few other random lines on your blog that you weren’t really enjoying it, but I hope you can find something that feels like the right fit. I imagine Chicago has a lot more opportunity than you had in Wisconsin, and at least you’re in CHICAGO!

    I’m sorry that the job isn’t working out. 🙁 BUT you’re in Chicago which has way more job prospects! And the stomach issues… I feel you on that. I’m pretty sure mine are 100% caused by stress which sucks. It seems like even the littlest things can trigger it.
