Feeling a little better with the blood pressure issue. Didn't really make any progress over last week. I think the interruption in my diet and routine really messed me up this past week.

Still frustrated weight isn't going up. Leg day was kinda rough, felt sick to my stomach halfway through. I don't know why this happens to me only on leg day. Drank a powerade and that helped.

Workout got cut short due to arm pain in left arm, some kind of tendon issue it felt like. It was inhibiting by bench press pretty bad towards the end. Just gonna let it rest and treat it with some voltaren.

Had to work out at at Anytime Fitness today because the Y closes early and we got a late start. So some of the equipment was different, but numbers were not far off home gym. Also some shorter than normal rest intervals because I was working in with a guy.
Feeling good now, arm pain is gone, lethargy is gone. Have a good feeling that progress is just around the corner.

I do have a 3 day trip to Chicago planned next weekend, but I think I'll be able to adjust my workouts to where it's not a huge interruption.

Some progress today. It's like no matter what I eat though, I can't gain weight. I'm eating ice cream every night and drinking regular coke, eating candy, and every day I wake up looking leaner. Wtf. I can't eat more than this, I will get sick.

Gonna give this drol a shot for a few more weeks and see if it helps, if not I think I'm gonna drop down to cruise doses and try to maintain and get my metabolism back to normal.

If you really want the weight to go up add a tablespoon or 2 of healthy oil to every meal (olive, avocado, walnut, macadamia). Try drinking more calories after your meals. You can add oats and blend them up or even buy oat flour, already blended. Make sure what ever you drink is condensed with calories (not coke). I would try to get a little more protein too, maybe add that to your drinks too.

Started feeling better today, not sure what this sickness was, I never tested positive for covid. I got off the drol. My diet went to shit the past 2 days.

Anyway hit the gym with a buddy of mine and workout went way better than I expected it would. Even made a tiny little progress over last week.

15 mins treadmill 3.5mph x 6%
ez bar curls 90x12, 11, 8+1p
cross body hammer curls 40's x 10, 9
concentration curls 35x9, 7
weighted dips +25 × 10, 10, 8
cable tricep pushdowns 89 x 12, 12, 10
overhead tricep rope ext 50 x 12, 11, 12
forearm curls 35x13, 11, 11

So tomorrow night we leave for Chicago on a 3 day weekend. I hope to get one workout in while I'm there.

Sorry I've been meaning to reply to this. The coke thing is like a once a day drink with a meal, where i used to drink diet coke I just switched to regular to get more calories. Almost everything else I drink is some kind of protein shake or at least humapro. Adding the oils is a good idea too. Thanks.

I'm going to Chicago tonight for 3 days, it is going to be tough to maintain my diet while traveling on this short trip. I will take some protein powder though.

Well this sucks so far. One kid got sick and puked half the day yesterday, and I have pretty much been the nurse on duty the whole time. Which I kinda don't mind because Chicago is cold as fuck already. And I did not bring warm enough clothes for this trip.

To make matters worse this is the worst hotel gym ever, all they have is cardio equipment and a cable machine. Also I forgot my anytime fitness key at home 😟

Unscheduled deload?

Sorry to hear about your kiddo, I hate when my baby is sick. Hopefully they feel better soon and maybe you get one good day out of Chicago.
