It can be so scary when something happens to your lower back when deadlifting.

Thanks for asking.

I'm glad I got in extra tire work on the weekend and a great workout on Monday, because Monday night, a stomach bug got me. First my oldest son was sick, then my youngest, and finally I caught it.

First out the bottom, then out the top (if you know what I mean). Down 7 pounds. Appetite still not back. Hopefully I will have my appetite back tomorrow and energy levels will be up enough to get in a light workout.

Maybe this was for the best, I was going to attempt to squat on Tuesday, but my lower back is not 100% yet, maybe this is God's way of protecting me, lol.

Man, That bug hit our household. I was going to start the 13 week program a week ago but it knocked me out for a week. Took about 5 days to feel 100% again. Good luck!

I hate getting sick, because I feel like all the hard work is going to be lost, then my pride wants to get back into the gym before I'm ready. Hope you feel better.

I feel you. I feel skinny and fat at the same time. It sucks.

On the bright side...(kind of)

I am really wondering if this sickness isn't protecting my lower back though. Today would normally be deadlifts (which, up until this morning I was planning on doing), but when I woke up, I was still not feeling well. Just no appetite and slight nausea.

Still recovering in terms of my appetite, my stomach is just not 100%. I can't stomach the quantities of food I was consuming right before I got sick. That sucks, my metabolism is hyper fast and I need TONS of food to gain mass.

Saturday I was finally well enough to workout, but I couldn't push myself to do occlusion, it was pathetic, but I was nauseated from an arm workout.

However, I can't let myself get down, this lower back injury and now this stomach bug are just a road bump. I will come back. In fact, I am a pretty optomistic person, so I am really trying to see the benefits to having missed 4 days of workouts in terms of letting my lower back heal/rest. If I hadn't gotten sick, I was bound to have pushed to hard and made it worse.

Bodyweight down about 7 pounds from initial loss last Tuesday when I caught the stomach bug, haven't ate much since then, but luckily, weight has been stable. Hopefully, I can get the 7 pounds back quickly since it should be mostly fluid loss.

Diet Update

I was 183.4 lbs, last week, I have no idea where I am at now, I didn't bother to weight in daily because I was sick. I do know I am down about 7 pounds.

Today I have been able to eat almost a normal amount, hopefully the scale will bounce back slightly as my muscles take in some water and glycogen.
