Sup guys, I just started working out again and I'm bored at work, so I just decided to create a log. Hopefully having this up will help motivate me to keep up with my diet and routine. Training background: I lifted 5 years ago, freshman year of college. Used the WBB routine #1, went up from 110LB to 125LB in 4 months. Stopped training during finals that semester, and I haven't really trained since. Current motivation: I've finally graduated and have a full time job (hooray), but I've been completely sedentary for the past 3 months (boo). I've gone up from 125LB to 130LB in that time period, doing fuck all for exercise, so I'm concerned that I'm putting on just fat. Also, my social life has somewhat blossomed in the past couple of months, so vanity definitely plays a role here Goals: 155LB by the end of the year. Strength isn't really a big deal for me, I just want to fill out a bit and then I'll update my goals from there. Stats: Age: 22 Weight: 130 Height: 5'9" Diet: Recently, it's just been a bagel for breakfast, a somewhat big homecooked lunch (chicken or beef w/rice or pasta) or fast food, and approximately the same for dinner. To start off, I'm making the following changes: -Breakfast will be a WW bagel w/cream cheese, oatmeal or Cheerios depending on my mood, with a couple of scrambled eggs. -Starting yesterday, I split up my lunch into two meals - one at around 10:30, another one at around 3:30. Same as before - some meat, some carbs, but replacing pasta and rice with WW pasta and brown rice. I'm also eating a banana or apple after the first meal. -I'm adding a full serving of Cytogainer with 2% milk everyday - post workout on workout days, around 5:30 on non-workout days. -Dinner will be about an hour and a half later, with more of the same as lunch. Edit: I'd especially appreciate advice here, because I've always found it exceedingly difficult to reach my calorie goal (currently 3000) while eating cleanly. Should I fudge things a bit and eat some less healthy foods to reach the goal, if necessary? Supplements: Cytogainer Routine: Starting Strength routine from bodybuilding.com Photos coming in a few hours when I get from work. Any comments, especially on my diet, are greatly appreciated.
