Anemic, sick AF, weak, feeling deflated, but still looking dialed :-)

Current weight:
182
lbs

I was sick AF the last 2 weeks... throwing up, non-stop diarrhea, nauseous to the point of not eating, gut extended to the diaphragm restriction and shallow breathing. My HRV (heart hate variability — an objective measure of recovery) was 1/5 of my normal, indicating that I'm not recovering... resting heart rate (RHR) was elevated by 20 beats per minute. Perplexed and feeling defeated, my LK 2.0 doctor made a house call and ordered an emergency abdominal CT w/ contrast, and had three different medical doctors check me out. I lost 10 lbs... dropped all the way down to 178 lbs. This is the least I've weighed in over a decade... even less than I generally weigh at the end of my quarterly 5-day water-only fast. Speaking of fasts, I thought deeply about doing one to heal this bitch (this has worked 100% of the time in the past to cure any ailments) but I was already too weak, too light and too far gone. Largely recovered, I'm still feeling weak as AF but I decided to test and push myself anyway bc that's what I do. Right outta the gate, I attempted my Liver King Strict Press Challenge  (https://www.instagram.com/tv/CVVUSmYlDyk/) and clocked the worst time in history, but I did complete it (under 10 mins). To make matters worse, Steve Will Do It challenge me to the "Century Egg Challenge" the same day and I was stupid enough to attempt it. It put me right back on my ass. July has produced a hollow version of me thus far, but forging forward I go bc that's what I do.


The silver lining is that my liver, pancreas, kidneys and all organs not only tested healthy, but the CT showed the same. Peace of mind that I didn't know I needed.


Anything else ya wanna know, comment or question below and I'll engage.
