Workout & WIAW

Thought I'd take a break from the serious posts and do a little "What I Ate and Workout Wednesday"post. I'm still *trying* to eat more calories, although I don't think I did well during our 2 week stay at the hospital. It was hard getting all my meals in there, but I did my best to make sure not to undereat. The good thing is I haven't lost any weight. My workouts have been very sporadic, but I've still been able to get at least 2 heavy lifting leg days in every week.

Because I work out later in the day now and don't  have the time to get in 6 meals, I've dropped my meals down to 5 but increased each meal to make sure to still get the same amount of calories. It's working for me so far.
Here was yesterday:

Meal 1:
1 banana
3/4 cup oats
Spoonful of pb
1 heaping scoop protein powder
Coffee with cream

Meal 2: 
Omelette: 2 eggs, 2 whites, 2 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice velveeta cheese
~8ish oz (I don't measure anymore) roasted potatoes with ketchup

Coffee with creamer

Meal 3 Post workout:
2 cup Honey bunches of oats
1 scoop whey protein mixed with almond milk

Meal 4: 
1 cup pasta
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
5 oz ground turkey(93/97%) mix
1 protein pumpkin muffin
1/2 cup broccoli

Meal 5:
2 rice cakes
2 spoonfuls of peanut butter
1/2 cup cottage cheese
I've been adding barbell hip thrusts back in the last month or so and trying to get them in twice a week with one lighter day and one heavier day. Hopefully I can get back to being strong on those again! They are feeling much better now that I'm using a lower bench. Hopefully with the added calories I can get this booty to grow! I've been feeling so small and puny lately.  I miss following a more structured plan, but hey, sometimes ya just gotta do what you can do. I'm thankful for just being able to get a workout in these days.

1)Hip thrusts: 125x12/145x10/165x2x10
2)Front squats: 125x3x7
3)RDLs: 125x12/145x3x8-9
4)Walking lunges: 35x3x8/leg
5a)Back extensions: 3x15
5b)Band abductions: 3x15
6)Hanging leg raises: 10/8/6/6
