I hate using the "not enough time" excuse, but I think it's pretty much true now. Don't get me wrong, I have time to work out, that's not my problem. But between 2 jobs and full time school it's so hard to get my calories and protein . It's gotten to the point where I get probably about 60% of my protein from shakes just because I never have time to prepare food. I'm also in danger of outgrowing most of my pants. I wasn't exactly lean when I started bulking this time around. I'm normally a 34 waist, I was 36 when I started, and I'm really pushing into 38's now. I'm not sure if I'll actually cut, but I'd like to just plateau it for now and maintain the best I can. If I lose some weight in the process, that's okay with me as long as I don't lose any strength. I'm still making enough noobs gains that I'll probably still gain even if I'm not on a caloric surplus. So today concludes my 2 month bulking cycle . 205 -> 220. As it gets closer to summer I'll probably try again and clean bulk when I get more free time. I wouldn't say I've been eating dirty, but I'm probably putting on weight faster than I should.
