Hey @lordgains thanks for chiming in. My main concern is the thyroid as I really don’t understand what the numbers mean. I’m going in to see my normal doc to review but he is a moron so wanted to be able to challenge him if needed.
Since you asked though (and i def appreciate it) i’ll give you the rundown.
Fatigue seemed to start late last week. Feel like I need a nap every day and got up in the morning, skipped cardio and slept for 2 additional hours last monday morning. Today was not too bad. No napping and barely any caffeine. Maybe a corner has been turned.
Go to bed every night at 930-10pm. Wake up at 5am every day. Last 4-5 days i’ve gotten extremely tired and fell asleep on the couch for a short time earlier in the evening. Usually wake up 3 times to pee but can get right back to sleep. Don’t really feel tired when the alarm goes off.
Currently dieting. About 400 cal deficit not including cals burned training and with cardio. I’m sure this plays in a bit.
1 scoop protein powder
2-3 whole eggs
5oz chicken thighs
5oc chicken breast
100g spinach/kale mix
5oz ground turkey
50z lean ground beef
3 whole eggs
1 cup egg whites
Macros are: 2500cal/55g carb/90g fat/350g pro
Been eating this way for 4 weeks. Aside from being hungry haven’t had any issues. Not really losing weight but the mirror is more important to me.
30 min cardio on incline treadmill every day
Go to my trainer mon/wed/fri. Those are the heavy/hard days.
Tues/thurs/sat train at home. Pump/accessoty work.
Sun off or maybe some hiking or XC skiing.
Currently finishing 3rd week of a 12 week cycle.
All shots split into 2x per week
60mg/day tbol until week 4 ends
Aromison as needed.
12mg/wk (split into 3)HGH taken on hard WO days. The first week was 6mg/wk then ramped up. We had some discussion on the HGH how to thread regarding this tactic. I know it’s not optimal but it’s what I can do. Worth the experiment in my opinion. I’ll update over there after a couple more weeks go by.
So far recovery has been great after hard WO’s. Especially legs. Or i’m not recovering and this is playing into the fatigue but I am able to crush it on every workout.
Everything is relatively good at work. Was under a little self induced pressure in January as I didn’t get the sales I expected that month. Feb is a different story. Crushing it now. Pretty much have half my sales quota for the year and expect I’ll meet quota by april or so. Is there underlying stress that’s affecting me there? Don’t think so. Usually if there is work stress my overall sleep patterns start to suck as i can’t stay asleep and my mind races. Haven’t had that happen in a long time. Learned to just let things roll off and not sweat the stuff out of my control.
Sorry for the long winded response. I have other labs taken just before the cycle started I could share if they would be helpful. Thanks.
