    I was able to negotiate 1 day of working remotely from home. I'll be home Thursday morning and will only be available until 1pm unless there is an emergency. I had to compromise a few things but in the end both my boss & I are happy with the proposed arrangement.

    Training & diet unfortunately has been a challenge until I get some answers with what's wrong with me. My joints are constantly inflamed & achy (even with taking joint supplement), and I'm fatigued even after resting. So my workouts haven't been great, I'm getting it done but really just going through the motions at this point. I'm good with the structure of a diet, but because of the fatigue I'm hesitant on dropping calories just yet, I've actually increased calories above maintenance- - but with not being 100% on training I'm hoping the BF stays under control (yes mind games I know) . I need all the energy I can get. I thought after taking a full 7 days off from the gym would help but I'm still struggling. I see my doctor again on the 31st.

    I spent a good hour with my Chiropractor on Saturday and got a good deep tissue massage, stretching and various manipulations. I was sore as shit all day Sunday but feel a bit better today. He's also going to send me for some new images (MRI & X-Ray) while I'm waiting for my "traditional" doctor to get back to me. I've been with this Chiropractor for so long he's become a family friend so he won't be charging me anything out-of-pocket after insurance covers their % (thank god!) .

    Surprisingly enough I got a solid week of training in this week!!

    Going to be skipping MMA class tomorrow and probably won't go back until I see doc again. My bruising has been out of control. Plus my husband is pretty great about letting me do my own thing, but he pretty much put is foot down on this one...no contact sports until we know what's going on... how dare he...I know he's right but still.

    Thursday
    Walking DB lunges 4x20
    Smith Spit squats 3x12 (per leg)
    BB Hip Thrusts 3x12
    Sumo squats- 3x12

    BW Pull Ups- x8x6x6
    Wide pull downs- 3x12
    T-Bar Rows-3x12
    Low CB Pull-3x15

    Cardio: 15min incline walk

    Friday
    EZ Bar OH Ext- 4x12
    Close grip BB Press- 3x10
    V-Bar Push Downs-3x10
    BW Dips- x15x15

    BB Curls- 21's x4
    DB Preacher curls- 3x12
    Alt DB Curls- 2x15 (drop sets)

    Cardio: 25min on stepper

    Feeling tiered, but not terrible. I was able to take care of a lot of thing yesterday working from home so this weekend should be nice and easy. Just some minor food prep for the week. Tomorrow is our "alone night" so we'll be dropping kids off at g-ma's after lunch and will probably have an early dinner then straight to the couch to cozy up for the rest of the evening.

    Dang, I'm not going to be Dr. Google, but my first thought if you are tired all the time, is thyroid. The bruising adds a dimension that I don't recall being a thyroid issue, but I hope you get a thorough run thru and evaluation of the blood work. Hoping for something wonderfully simple and easy to fix!

    Google is the Devil!! My doctor has a sign in her office that says "Patients will be charged an extra $20 for any self diagnosis from Google!"

    I'm having good days and bad days. Last week was pretty good, then Saturday was a bad day. I woke up feeling as if I'd run over by a truck. I didn't start feeling better until well into the afternoon. I skipped the cardio I had planned for the day and just did some foam rolling and stretching at home. Hubby and I then went out to dinner and went straight back home. Nothing to eventful......we just took advantage of not having our 3yr old at home and got some rest.

    Sunday was better, but I still ended up taking Monday off from training. Figured it would be best to give myself an extra day before leg training.

    Tuesday 3/24
    5min warm up- various BW movements
    Leg Press- +90x12, +140x10, +180x10, +120x10
    BB RDLs- 95x10,95x10, 105x10
    BB Front Squats- 85x10, 95x10, 105x10

    Super set A
    Standing calves on smith- 12,10,8,6
    DB Reverse Lunges- 10s 4x10
    Super set B
    Seated Calves- 2x25
    DB Goblet Squats- 25x20x20

    Kneeling CB Crunches- 4x20
    Lying leg raises- 4x20

    Always nice to take a little time to yourselves away from the kiddos, even if it is just a quiet night at home.

    Mirin' those front squats!
