    Did a lazy man’s meal prep yesterday! Put rice, chicken, and veggies in my pressure cooker...20 mins later I had a weeks worth of meals! Not beautiful but tasty! Haha-img_0628.jpg

    Chest and shoulders today about 20 working sets and some core work. Finished with 20 mins of cardio. Started adding in a little bit of running today. Went pretty well all things considered! The gym just started requiring masks so that was a bit challenging! Mask was soaking wet by the end!

    Pressure cookers/steamers rock!! We'll throw a flank steak and veggies in there or a brisket flat w/ veggies and let it roll. A little rice, slop it into a container and call it good enough for it's for.

    Great idea! I have a brisket in the freezer too!

    Today was back day- my absolute favorite muscle group to train! (I also incorporate rear delts and biceps of course) Today I started adding conventional deadlifts too! I’ve been slowly adding compound lifts in and building up to “heavier” weights too. Only did 135x10. I’m a bit nervous with all of the internal stitches to strain too much just yet.
    Starting to feel all of my muscles starting to fill back out too! Exciting stuff! Maybe I can make some newbie gains too! Lol Is that too big of a dream?

    Good morning! Work has been so crazy, I’ve been too busy and exhausted at night to post. So I apologize! Wednesday, was a rest day. Thursday, was shoulders and cardio. Yesterday, was legs. Finally added squats. Worked up to 115x6-8 did that for 4 sets. I was surprised to be able to squat even that much. Last time I had surgery 65 was insanely heavy. 115 felt great but I am super cautious to strain too much just yet. I want to make sure my pelvic floor muscles are nice and strong/recovered. Last weeks leg day had more of a ham/Glute focus. This week was more quad focused and my quads are screaming at me today! I love it though!
    Endurance on running is improving too. Getting closer to being able to do my intervals without needing 2-3 mins to walk between. Haha (I do NOT like running- so know the term running is used very lightly)

    Nutrition has been on point -not sure if I said current macros-they are 150 protein, 100 carbs, and 40 fat. Total calories 1360

    Weight is pretty much the same possibly a few ounces less but what does that matter!

    I had a friend send me some powerlifting shoes-super excited to try them!! I also bought some more bands as all of mine were starting to break.

    I hope you all had a great weekend! We did! Took the top off the jeep...spent the day out on the lake Saturday -me and my paleness got very red! Lol ...Sunday was church and then I went wedding shopping with my sister in law. She’s getting married at our house this weekend!

    Chest and shoulders yesterday! Bench working sets were 105x6x4 (flat) and 85x6x3 on incline.

    Back day today - Deads working sets up to 175x8x4 sets. Started adding in pull-ups with a band. Everything is feeling great! Definitely feeling and starting to see muscles fill back out. Now if the fat would start going away, I’d be so excited! -3d655641-2921-492e-a941-289c4da84e16.jpg

    Trained legs this morning...was just in the zone, I guess, and did 3 sets of 155x5 on squats before I knew it. I looked back at my post last week to see what I made it to...much to my surprise I only made it to 115 last week. HECK YEAH!! Working my way to decent numbers!!!

    Also had my follow up blood work done. Found out they only tested fsh, estradiol, and testosterone previously. I had them at progesterone and dhea to the count as well. T3 & T4 we’re both very low before. I feel like levels still aren’t quite optimum yet so hoping for an increase in meds.

    Anyways, now onto wedding preparations. (Can’t remember if I said...I’m having my sis-n-laws wedding at my house this weekend. Made 2 large cheesecakes for her cake last night and will be making cupcakes today as well as cleaning the house, & decorating etc.)

    Happy Monday guys and gals! Last week was a shorter training week. Trained Monday-Wednesday and spent Wednesday night through the weekend at the beach with friends and family. Was a much needed break!! -a70e79d9-ab88-43fc-8de8-bd13b1f12484.jpg

    Meant to add...dr doubled my dose of NP Thyroid, last week. I haven’t seen my levels yet but I figured they were still off- just by my symptoms.

    Two of my absolute favorite workouts are
    1. the ones you can barely make it to the car- you’re so worn out
    &
    2. The ones where your muscles are so full and painful that you couldn’t get another rep!

    Loving that training has been like that!

    A bit more tired this week but I’ve been going to bed about 9:45 most nights so that’s about an hour earlier. Have had a little pain as well so I didn’t push going past 225 on Deads and actually skipped squats this week. Probably nothing but just playing it safe.

    Today’s leg session kicked my butt! Feel like my glutes have shrunk a bit- - hoping it’s more that they’re leaning out though(that’s the overall goal right now)...I know I’m doing plenty of glute training! Lol

    Good morning! Things are still moving along...strength is still improving slowing down a bit as I get closer to my maxes. Of course, I’m impatient and want more but that’s not how it works! Lol

    Main lifts this week were
    flat bench 115x5x4,
    incline 95x5x4,
    push press 115x3/105x5x3,
    back squats 185x1(too ambitious) 165x5x4/ bottom holds 95x8x3,
    Deads- I was interrupted with a talker for way too long- had to unrack and just finish up to get out.

    I haven’t weighed but weight is definitely not moving like it should be with my nutrition and training. Trying not to get frustrated and stay focused/positive! May have to ask to check levels again in a few weeks because I’m still having a good bit of symptoms as well.

    Sounds like everything is moving along well! I BET with your other numbers you can crack 185 easy, you just might want to move it to an earlier spot in your work out, like when you are warmed up but before the bulk of your main squat sets. That's not mansplaining, btw, just my OCD making me be specific lol

    Talkers.... yeah, that's frustrating as hell. Earbuds or curtness usually work if 'hey great talking to you I need to get back to my set now' doesn't.

    Thank you! You’re right- I probably had 2 possibly 3 good reps in me at 185 if I’m honest with myself but knew I wouldn’t get the 5 reps or multiple sets. Despite it feeling like 300lbs on my back, I was surprised that I was able to do a nice clean rep. Once I racked it, I looked back to see how much I had done the last time I squat. I have learned to start off with squats before I wear down. Usually 4-5 warmup “sets” to get the blood flowing. I have a tear in one if not both of my labrums in my hips so I use the hip circle on the first few sets as well.

    Yes, being too nice or overly courteous is a weakness of mine! I did have earbuds in but this guy was not letting up! Haha I pretty much heard his life story. He was a nice guy too- just should’ve listened and gotten my sets in at the same time! Haha

I have learned to start off with squats before I wear down. Usually 4-5 warmup “sets” to get the blood flowing. I have a tear in one if not both of my labrums in my hips so I use the hip circle on the first few sets as well.
    Very smart on the warm-up process. I like it!!

    Next time, just smile, nod, jam your earbuds in, walk up to the bar, growl somewhat loudly, shake the bar while it's still in the rack, unrack, and start repping. He should figure things out.

    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    One other thing you might try, in addition to the previously put forth suggestions, and I have used this but it can backfire, goes something like this:
    Him: "Hey! how you doing?"
    You: "Ich spreche kein Englisch"
    Him: "...." <wanders off>

    Like I said, this can backfire...

    No interruptions in my deadlifts yesterday!! Still sticking with sets 225. Feel a good bit of pressure and not interested in risking any prolapse mess. Legs are just now getting past the soreness from Friday’s session.

    Also, I set up a consultation to work with a local coach to see if he can help me get my nutrition figured out to get the fat loss rolling. Couldn’t get in until the end of the month but I’m looking forward to it!

    Just make sure you do some background work on "him" as well to make sure he's worth your money.

    Definitely! He seems to have very good credentials and he’s a small town guy but was suggested by a friend. She sent me her progress pics and has made phenomenal progress! I’m not planning on competing or anything but I’m DESPERATE to get the freaking fat off. Clen has been the only way I’ve had any luck and that was only 10lbs.
