Emotionally recovering from a lost love is no easy feat. In my case, I've lost two. Just shy of two weeks ago I went through a break-up of my first romantic love. It's a complicated situation, but what makes it worse is the fact that my step-mom who has been battling leukemia for 2-3 years is going to die by the end of this week or into next week.
I'm using these next 10 weeks to channel all of my pain and anger into lifting. I've decided to dedicate my transformation to my step-mom, Cindy. It's an effort to prove that life is beautiful and worth living to the fullest.
I will post starting pics next Monday as well as weekly logs of my lifts. I'm pretty short (about 5'5 and a half) and am a lightweight (starting at about 127 pounds). I have lifted in the past, so I do have some decent strength to start things off. I'm relying on a good friend of mine to design my workouts, but I'm a little nervous about my eating habits because I'm not a big eater, and to be completely honest, I don't have the largest appetite right now.
As for supplements, I should be receiving my supply of NO-Beta & Creadyl early next week. I also have a bag of Optimum Whey and a container of Men's Daily Multivitamins from Target.
I would really appreciate tips about anything bodybuilding related. I may invest in a weight gainer because drinks are much easier to take down right now. Any ideas?
Edit: My goal is to gain as much muscle as possible, but specifically I would like to put on 15-20 pounds by the end of the tenth week.
