    Talking Lori's Muscle Building Adventure!!!

    Starts Tomorrow!!! I am going to try a different workout routine that someone here advised me to do, to sort of even out my strength. But before I begin, I am going to let my body heal for a few days because every part of me is brutally sore from a few days back. I just lost about 15lbs from dieting with really low calories, so I figured I'd slowly raise them, but after one fairly high calorie day, I woke up absolutely starving!!! So I "accidentally" brought them up to 1600 for a few days. I hope it wasn't too soon, but I seem to maintain on that number, and I am perfectly happy on that amount, so I'll stay there for a while and see what happens. I still have some fat left, so with heavy training and 1600 calories, I hope to be able to slowly build some muscle, and maybe lean out just a little more. If it's not enough, I'll raise them a little more after a month or so. Sound reasonable???

    Hmm. I woke up yesterday, and my body felt weak like it always does when its fighting an infection. In the afternoon I felt a little less tired, but my head and my ears were paining mildly. I did my workout anyway. I did overhead presses, inverted rows, and deadlifts. 3 sets of 6 reps like I was told to. But then I felt like I never did enough so I added dumbbell curls, Lying tricep extensions, glute/ham raises, push-ups, and bent-over rows. Took about 1 hour, and 20 mins. I ate 1600 calories again like I usually do lately. And then I woke up this morning with pain in my ears and head, and my lymph node is swollen and painful(which is a good sign that my body is fighting) and I can't hear very well. I made an appointment with the doctor, but it isn't until the 11th!! What the hell...So, today I focused on eating fruit, berries, protein and drinking veggie juice in abundance (still 1600 calories though). Along with lots of bed and green tea with lemon. Oh, and vitamin c tablets. Damn infection. I actually feel better than earlier though, so something must be working!!! Today is my rest day, so I'm doing just that. Hopefully tomorrow I can do my next workout. I'll just take more time between sets. It might be a little less hardcore, but I'd rather do something than be a lump. More hungry than usual today though.....Do you need more food when your body is sick?

    So here are my meals from yesterday. I was so full by the end of the day I could hardly eat my favourite meal before bed!! I still feel like crap today, but the good thing is, I'm no worse!!! Yay! I'm going to try and get an emergency doctors appointment so I can get better as soon as possible. I probably will just rest all day again, because my body seems more sore today than it was yesterday, and I am REALLY sore. So, more rest, and hopefully a trip to the doctor. I'm so happy I am doing online courses at home! I'd die if I actually had to go somewhere today, and school doesn't start until the 11th, so a full day of rest is in order!! Maybe if I feel less weak later I'll go for a nice walk outside in the woods....Sounds nice. Its sunny out, and theres still no snow.

    Alright. Todays mission is to get to a god-damn doctor!!! I can't believe its so hard to get an appointment. So, I took it easy yesterday and went for a little walk. It was so short, and at the end was a hill. I felt sooo fatigued my legs tired out after a few steps up the hill. I actually had to stop and wait for the feeling to return in my legs every few seconds. Along with that, my stomach feels naseous. I get this weird, unsettled feeling that feels hungry and queasy all at the same time. I'm disgusted. I'm dying to train! If I get an appointment I might do some light exercises. My energy is better, but I still can't hear right. What a boring journal this is turning out to be. Diet from yesterday:


    Meal One-9:00
    1/4 cup oats, 1 egg, 2 whites, 1/2 scoop
    Protein, 3 tbsps s.f syrup, 1 coffee................330 calories, 26g protein, 10g fat, 20g carbs

    Meal Two- 11:45
    1 can tuna, 1 cup veggie juice,
    1 apple, fish oil ........................................250 calories, 30g protein, 2g fat, 31g carbs

    1:30
    Tbsp peanut butter..................100

    Meal Three- 2:00
    piece apple, piece banana, mixed berries,
    yogurt, 9g pecans, 1 scoop protein..................300 calories, 28g protein, 8g fat, 26g carbs

    Meal Four- 4:30
    1 can tuna, 1 1/2 cup veggie juice,
    1 apple,1 tbsp p.b........................................365 calories, 30g protein, 10g fat, 31g carbs

    Meal Five- 7:30
    Protein, yogurt, 1 tbsp p.b..........................250 calories, 30g protein, 10g fat, 10g carbs

    Total= 1600 calories, 144g protein, 34g fat, 97g carbs

    Along with this, I felt sick before bed, so I ate a small piece of apple with some peanut butter. I was to lazy to add it in, but I am going to round up and say 200 calories, tops. Made me feel a little better though.

    EEEEE! I feel so much better today!!! I went to the doctor yesterday and he says I have chronic sinus crap and they were infected. My ears were fine! The looked perfect. He says its probably drainage going into my ears and clogging them, but no infection there!!! I have antibiotics and a sinus spray. My only problem now is refraining myself from weightlifting. It's hard. I feel like I can, but it's probably too soon....Maybe....But I weighed myself today, and after increasing my calories by about 5-600, and doubling my carb intake, and being bed-ridden for days, I am still 121lbs! Yay! I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I can eat, be satisfied, and not gain weight. Diet from yesterday: (bit of a weird menu, but my belly was feeling icky)


    Meal One- 8:30
    Protein Pancakes-
    1/4 cup oats, 1 egg, 2 whites,3/4
    Scoop protein, 3 tbsps s.f syrup
    2 tsps becal, 1 coffee............................370 calories, 33g protein, 20g carbs, 8g fat

    Meal Two-10:30 – snack
    Piece toast, tsp p.b, drizzle honey....................160

    Meal Three- 11:30
    Veggie juice- 1 1/2 cup veggie juice, crackers
    Small piece bread, piece banana...................................240

    Meal Four- 4:00
    Apple, 2 tbsps peanut butter............280

    Meal Five- 5:40
    1/4 cup oats, 1 egg, 2 whites,1/2
    Scoop protein........................................... 282

    Before bed- 9:00

    I think your diet looks pretty good considering you weren't feeling well! That's always when I start reaching for the 'comfort foods'. I think your plan is good...calories and macros look right on. Hope you feel better soon
    *Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.*

    Thanks for posting! Yay! I feel so weak and useless. But I am really hungry. So I try to eat what I can because I think my body could use it. My diet will probably change once I feel better and get my student loan. I don't usually drink veggie juice, and I usually eat a better supper than tuna and veggie juice, or protein pancakes, but my stomach doesn't feel like hard to digest things. I'm starting to get really depressed that I can't weightlift. I went downstairs yesterday and tried to do some glute/ham raises, and as soon as my heart rate went up, my face started burning, and the weak feeling came back, and my stomach felt more nauseated. I felt faint. And then I lyed down all day. I still feel faint. Grrrrr....But I stuck to my diet again yesterday, and hopefully I'll be all better after the weekend and I can resume my lifting schedule, and start to post that as well.

    So I tried to do my workout today. Here is my plan for the next few months:
    I am doing three main compound movements every workout. I was supposed to take my 10 rep max, and preform 6 reps one workout, 7 the next, all the way up to 10 reps, then increase the weight and starting back at 6 reps. I was told to do three exercises, 3 days a week, alternating workout #1 and #2. I found this too short, so I stuck with the initial idea, and added a few more exercises in, somewhat applying the same concept, focusing on increasing the reps each workout. If anyone actually reads this, can you tell me if this training is sufficient for increasing strength/muscle?? I'm really lacking on both, as well as a good training routine. So todays workout was supposed to be:

    1-legged bulgarian Squats-60lbs
    6 reps (but I did 8), 3 sets

    Bench Press-75lbs
    6 reps, 3 sets

    Lying leg curls on decline bench w/ 35lbs
    10 reps, 3 sets

    Bent-Over rows-50lbs
    6 reps, 3 sets,

    Barbell Curls-40lbs
    5 reps, 2 sets

    And heres where I died. My workout was horribly weak, and I feel slightly sicker now. I never got to do these:
    Weighted Dips
    Upright Rows
    Or my third set of barbell curls.

    I felt so weak during my workout. Everything felt 100x heavier than normal, but I'm happy I have enough energy for at least something other than lying in bed. I'm definitely not 100% better...more like 70%. But thats better than all week! I can't wait to start training intensely. Today was a joke....I'm so sad
    Anyways, here is the second workout that gets rotated with the one I did today, same reps/sets as the first:

    Deadlifts
    Overhead press
    Inverted Rows
    Alternating Curls
    Lying Tricep extensions
    Push-ups
    Glute/ham raises


    My diet for today:





    Meal One-9:00
    1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop protein,
    2 tsps p.b, 1 coffee..........................320 calories 24g protein, 23g carbs, 8g fat

    Meal Two- 12:00
    1/4 cup oats, 1 egg, 1 white,
    1/2 scoop protein, berries, 3 tbsps
    s.f syrup............................................. 314.5 calories 23g protein, 24 carbs, 10g fat

    Coffee.............20 calories

    Workout- 1:15

    Post-Workout- 2:30

    Unhappy

    IM STARVING!!!!! I think I might die.....After my crappy workout yesterday, I am surprisingly sore today. I feel a lot better now, and want to go do cardio (treadmill/step-ups/ab training stuff) But I'm absolutely ravenous! I "accidentally" ate a large assortment of food, equally about 600 calories a half an hour ago, and it actually made me feel hungrier....I'm going to keel over with hunger.....Must do cardio.....Is it time to up calories yet?? I would sure like to......Ok, I have no way to measure m body fat...I'll geuss its in the low 20's?? Can someone look at these pictures below? I am wondering if I want to kind of do a body recomposition thing, build muscle while maintaining current body fat,or losing slightly, I have to eat at maintanence, right? Do you think 1600 calories is enough for me if I weightlift 4 times a week, with small amounts of cardio thrown in?? Should I increase them? The longest I have ever ate at 2000 calories was about aa onth, and I gained fat...not water weight....chunky fat...So I am thinking 1800???

    Honestly, your progress pics look awesome!

    If you're hungry all the time at 1600, I would increase them to 1800 and re-evaluate from there. You may as well go with the highest calorie level you can while still losing fat!

    Don't push yourself too hard if you're not feeling good. Sometimes getting back to it too soon can drag things on for longer! Take care of yourself

    Thanks so much guys!!! You both made me feel happier!! Yay! Visitors!!!! After I went mad and ate 600 calories, I never felt hungry for about 5 hours later. So I imagine at the end of the day may calories will be 1600. Maybe once I am training intense more frequently I will up them on training days to 1800. I'm finally getting my energy back!!!! I have a lot of schhol crap to do tomorrow, so hopefully the day after, the hard training will resume!!!

    Your pics are looking great! And I may have to steal some ideas from your nutrition plan...I just can't seem to get mine together in a way that I can follow. Aside from getting your calories at a level that leaves you satisfied you seem like you've got it toghether! Great work!

    i think your pictures look great. what are you goals for this year?? are you trying to put on some muscle?

    it seemed like you are leaning towards a recomposition instead of a true bulk since you mentioned that 2000 cals a day ended up just making you chunky.

    I am dying to bulk, but I am afraid...the only time I ever ate 2000 calories, I managed it for only a few weeks, but to be fair, I went on vacation before that for a week and when I left I was 125, and when I got back I never weighed myself, but I started right in eating 2000 calories. After a few weeks, I was 134lbs, the most I have ever been in years. So then I dieted and lost some weight. So the increase in fat could have been from vacation, and not from the 2000 calories. I ate what I felt like, and had my share of ice cream and coolers. I know it wasn't water weight because it was chunky like fat. So, my goal is to gain a lot of muscle while keeping my bodyfat down. I am going to increase to 1800 calories when I start to train hard again (getting over a crappy infection) I don't do much activity during the day besides lifting because of school. Any advice is truly appreciated though! I could certainly use the help! I would love to bulk. Do you think it would be best to try and eat 2000 calories again???

    i think you should try to eat 200 cals over your maintenance, which may or may not be 2000 cals. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/

    i was probably around 20-22% bodyfat when i went on a bulk and i'm telling you, it's the best thing i've ever done. my 6 pack is starting to come in. i gained about 20lbs between august and january.

    when you're eating more protein and clean for the most part, the weight you gain doesn't come on as fat. the only times i felt fat were at thanksgiving and xmas and both times i was drinking like a horse.

    Thanks! I don't know if I trust those calculators, but from experience, I'm pretty sure I maintain at 1600 calories. I've been eating that for about two weeks now, and I haven't lost anything, so I'm thinking 1800 will be perfect for me. I'm going to start eating that on workout days, and I'll keep it consistent for a month or two and see what happens. I have progress pics this time, so it might be easier to monitor fat/muscle gains. I really appreciate your imput!!!

    I did my workout today. I was really disappointed. Every exercise I did, I did less reps with the same weight. I feel like my strength is gone!! Seriously, I was giving it my all, the weight wouldn't budge! I was trying and trying for about ten seconds to move the weight for the last rep on every exercise and I just couldn't lift it! I did the same workout before I got sick, and I did worse this time..

    Todays workout:

    Deadlifts- 125lbs
    3 sets of 7, 7, 7

    Overhead press-50 lbs
    3 sets of 7, 7, 7 (60 is my 1-rep max, and 50 was supposed to be my 10-rep max...I failed at 7)*scrap that, I just calculated it....I made a mistake! I was supposed to use 45lbs...50 was my
    5-rep max...I did it 7 times! That’s good! Anyways, the rest still sucked...

    Inverted Rows-
    I did 4 last time...Today I only got two for all 3 sets so I held it for as long as possible each set.

    Alternating Curls-25lbs (disgusted with these..Last time it was 10, 7, 7)
    3 sets of 7, 6 , 5...booo...

    Lying Tricep extensions - 40lbs (Last time -11, 10, and 10)
    3 sets of 11, 9 1/2, and 5.

    Push-ups (Last time 3, 2 , 4)
    This time I got two, so I started combining them with Glute/ham raises. I can’t do one of those yet, only partials and I use my arms to take off some of the weight of my body, so I put my legs through my decline bench, and pushed myself up, and then locked my legs to hold myself in a glute raise. I either lost strength during the week where I never worked out somehow..??? Or I’m not totally recovered yet. I’m going to hope it’s the latter and hopefully do better next time.

    Todays diet- I am going to increase to 1700 for a few weeks.

    Meal One-8:00
    Protein pancakes.......350 calories, 23g protein, 22g carbs, 8g fat

    Pre-workout- 10:00
    Protein shake, 1 tbsp p.b..........220 calories, 28g protein, 5g carbs, 10g fat

    Post-workout- 11:30
    Protein shake...............120 calories 25g protein, 2g carbs, 2g fat

    Meal Two-1:00
    Tuna sandwich
    3/4 can tuna, 2 slices w/w
    Bread, 1 spoon plain yogurt
    2 fish oils.............................200 calories, 25g protein, 20g carbs, 8g fat

    Meal Three- 3:00
    Apple, 1 tbsp p.b, 1/4 can tuna
    Spoon yogurt.......................250 calories, 7.5g protein, 20g carbs, 8g fat

    Meal Four- 5:30
    Chicken omelette, 1
    Piece w/w toast...................300 calories, 35g protein, 10g carbs, 10g fat

    Meal Five- 8:30
    Protein, yogurt, 1 tbsp p.b, berries..........270 calories, 30g protein, 10g carbs, 10g fat

    Total= 1710 calories, 193.5g protein, 94g carbs, 56g fat

    The rest of your workout is not bad at all.

    Thank-you for the kind words!! It was weaker than the workout I did the last time before I got sick with a sinus infection, so I was disappointed. I'm not done my antibiotics yet, and the infection hasn't totally cleared up, so I'm thinking that might be the reason. Your comment made me feel a little better though!

    ^ I can relate.

    When you're sick and on medication, you will be weaker. That's pretty normal, so don't worry about it. I was very sick myself, in Aug 2009 and was as weak as a geek, who sits at the computer all day long, lol. Took me almost 2 months, to get my strength back!

    Holy Mackerel! Thank-you, thats good to know! I was starting to worry there for a while!!!

    The soreness should go away, after the first working set (after your warm ups).

    Good luck.

    As long as you're sore and not painful, it should get better once you get in the groove (like Lucifer said).

    If it gets too distracting and you can't focus on your bent-over rows, you could sub in something like this if you needed to:

    It should help take some of the strain off your lower back and still let you hit your middle back pretty well.

    Thanks guys!!! I started off and did a few bodyweight 1-legged squats, and some other light exercises, and the pain was greatly reduced. The only problem was.....I feel 10x crappier today then I did three days ago, when I did my last workout. I was feeling awesome before my last workout, I did a weaker workout, but I was able to go all out. I had so much energy. I was so excited, I thought because I was getting better, and I could weightlift again! But right after I was done, the sickness crept back. I was bed-ridden all day yesterday because the infection had gotten worse. I felt extreamly hungry, tired, sore, and congested. I didn't care though, I kept saying " Can't wait for my workout tomorrow!" I figured if I rested all that day, I'd be fine, but when I woke up this morning, I was no better. Still really ravenous, sore, tired, lots of pressure on my face, clogged ears, and no energy. But I told myself I would fight through it and do my workout anyway. Well. I went down there today, and as soon as my heart rate went up my temperature went up (in a feverish way). Along with a feeling of pure sleepiness and fatigue. I scrapped my awesome workout and did some light leg curls & sit-ups till I felt like I was going to drop. Took 20 mins..Now I feel angry and really crappy. I was so excited for January to come so I could eat more and lift heavier. I actually wanted Christmas break to end so I could get back into my routine. And I've been sick ever since!!! I'm just going to quit until I'm totally better, because I do not want to prolong my recovery. Its driving me insane!!!!!!! No more journal until I'm better and can lift again...So sad....And what the hell?! I've never eaten so much in my life. I'm so hungry! I've been eating 17-1800 calories for the past few days, and I still go to bed hungry at night. Besides my workout, I've been bed-ridden and I'm still starving!!! ARG!

    Lori, your post made me raise my eyebrows. See a Doctor ASAP!

    Do not post until you see one.
