But I'm going to do it anyway... Though I'm never very good at recording logs or journals about my progress, the only thing I am absolutely stuck on recording daily is my calorie intake thanks to my fitbit device and online tracker. But I'm going to give it fair chance...
See, I've basically been busting my a** trying to figure out the PERFECT diet, the PERFECT batch of supps, and the PERFECT workout regime. I have only come to the clear conclusion that there is no "PERFECT" anything. I realize for my sake, that there is no way time for me to do a reasonable bulk and cut process at this point that it is already near the summer, but I have decided that I will at least give full effort into a plan that may only be half-a**ed.
I have been on hiatus for the past few months, going back and forth on what I should be eating, how I should be eating, how much I should be eating... My head has spun in so many circles that I've got to just chill
From here on out, I've decided that I will commit to a month of "bulking" - REALLY bulking, like, actually eating, and then for the last month, cut in time for my beach season starting May 23rd :P Doable? We'll see...
I will be posting my food log and workout plan for the remainder of my time, hopefully on a daily basis if time permits. Feel free to comment, leave advice - I am always looking for some help. And don't get me wrong, I'm not a complete moron... I know what I'm doing for the most part. I do have a lot of background in nutrition and I am studying community health in the pursuit of a masters in nutrition - so I do have a true passion in this area of my life. I just need to *perfect* my knowledge and learning if I dare say...
As of now, my stats are:
Recently, I have been maintaining a pretty constant calorie intake of 1800 calories on my rest days, and 2220 calories on my training days - training 3-4x per week:
Sat - Shoulders, Chest, Tris
Mon - Back, Biceps
Wed - Legs, Abs
However, I am now going to switch up my routine to looking something like this:
Monday - Back and Biceps
Tuesday - OFF
Wednesday - Quads and Hamstrings
Thursday - Chest and Triceps
Friday - OFF
Saturday - Shoulder, Calves and Abs
I will also be maintaining my calorie intake on both rest and training days, so something along the lines of
and fill in the rest with carbs and more protein if need be... Hopefully that makes sense to myself when I'm coming up with my meal plans...
My goal is to gain muscle, but most importantly to lose the last bit of stubborn fat that lies around my waist and inner thighs. I understand that this all takes time, but I'm in short supply :P
Will start recording progress this coming Monday so that I have the rest of this week and weekend to iron out all the details
