    Kittys Log

    Ive decided to finally do a log on here! Need to motivation and accountability! Progress has been slow for me for a while. It gets mentally exhausting sometimes because I feel like Im not progressing but looking back, I can see the changes.

    I started this journey over 200lbs and never touching a weight. Lost about 75lbs, most by not eating, got in the gym and fell in love with lifting! Years of very low calories and no plan in the gym or knowledge of nutrition, I didnt accomplish much. I started reading, asking questions, and learning...things started to change and progress. I ran my first bulk in 2010 and since then, I have continued to put on muscle and lose very little fat regardless of what I do. I do however have an autoimmune thyroid disease that plays a big role in this.

    Anyways, on with the good stuff!

    Training schedule is 4 days of lifting M,T,Th,
    & Fri. (Upper/Lower split)
    Most days, training is high density but I do occasionally switch it up depending on if training alone and unable to really do giant sets.

    Most days I have a whopping 45 mins to get in and out of the gym so I try to pack in as much as possible! I can usually get back to do a little cardio before work. (About 20 mins)

    Nutrition- I just switched from IF back to the 4-5 meals a day. Weekends more like 2 possibly 3 meals but calories/macros stay the same.
    150p/150c/60f= 1740calories

    Currently, Im trying to work my calories back up to 1800. I had gotten down to 1300 calories. Gotta revamp before I loose my mind!

    Man, it was sooooo hard to get out of bed today!! No excuses though! Just took a few extra sips of my pwo! Lol Once I got the blood pumping it was good! Had an awesome pump at the end!

    Db bench 50x8,8,8,7
    Db row 65x8x4 sets
    Plank 30 secs x4
    **1 min rest before repeating**

    Giant set 2:

    Cardio only today. Walked at lunch and then again after dinner. Had to work early so no faster cardio this am.

    Meal 1: overnight oats
    Meal 2: smoked chicken, sweet potatoes, and peas
    Meal 3: chicken and spring mix

    Cherish every moment you get with your family/friends! Time goes by so fast!

    Update-so went off and had an additional surgery. Hysterectomy this time! Fun stuff right after the big shut down too! So 15 weeks off the gym-most of it training at home and only 4-5 weeks off training completely. This is week 2 back. I have found a new GP and she started me in desiccated thyroid meds and bhrt. For now the bhrt just includes testosterone . I will go back in a couple of weeks to check how my body is responding. Libido is sky high, strength is coming back crazy fast and energy/hair loss is slowly improving. Over the past year I have put on 10 lbs that I cant seem to shake regardless of what I do. Hoping the bhrt and thyroid will set things straight! Tired of spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere!

    That sounds like you're on a good plan, Ms. Kitty. The bhrt should definitely give you a boost and it sounds like the dessicated thyroid is doing you well w/o having to take levothyroxine tabs.

    It will be interesting to hear how your lab values change and how you are feeling.

    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...

    Thank you! They arent the quickest at emailing my lab work so I think Ill just ask to take pics of it this next time. The Nurse practitioner started me on levo first but when I went to start bhrt I saw the dr and discussed my lab results as well. She swapped me to the NP thyroid! Im very glad! Much prefer desiccated over synthetic.
