    Ms_Mac's Bulking Experiment

    OPERATION BULK begins Sunday.

    My plan is to do mini bulk\cut cycles - 9 week bulk, 3 week cut for the whole year. AND - this is huge for me - I AM SWEARING OFF THE SCALE!! I am having pics and measurements and weight taken in the morning and am vowing to not get on the scale until the end of the first complete 12 week cycle. I will be tracking progress by measurements and pics only. Kind of excited to not be a slave to the scale - seems no matter what that fukcin' number is, it pisses me off. Soooo done with that

    My new workout routine which I will start Sunday as well:

    http://www.muscleandstrength.com/wor...zation-workout
    I am also planning on 20 min of cardio as a warm up to the AM workout.

    Calories will be in the 2500 range for the bulking weeks and around 1700 for cutting weeks- hovering around 2200 right now. As far as macros go, protein will be in the 160 gram range, carbs and fat fall where they may, so lottsa room for wine and chocolate

    Supplements I will be using:

    I have a 25 count bottle of AppNut's Uncut which I will use as my pre w\o.
    I also have a bottle of their NeoVar - each of the 2 servings will be with my post w\o meals.
    I take 2 grams of vitamin C regularly as well as 3 grams of vitamin D and 2 grams of calcium, and 2 tbls apple cider vinegar twice daily.

    I think thats about it for now. Will be back later tomorrow with pics and stats..

    I can actually see the difference in my quads this time so I am happy with that. Goals for this bulk:

    1 - first and foremost is to not let a number fukc with my brain. I think because I see a certain number I "think" I am fluffy.
    2 - I really just need to build some size everywhere.

    That's about it

    So subbed!!! I remember remember lots of useful advice from you in the bulking thread I am also bulking, this is bulk #2 for me, so its a bit easier on the brain to be getting fat I was wondering - did you always bulk in mini bulk\cut cycles? This sounds like a great plan, something I can stay on for a year actually without getting super uncomfortable. So excited to follow along!!!!

My first "real" bulk was for 15 months, my second was 9 months - but its seem like once I hit the 130ish mark is when I "think" I am getting fat......hoping I can get over that number eventually - and still look like I lift Thanks for following along during my experimentation process..

    Great first day! I love the idea of putting cayenne into hot cereal. Can you taste it a lot or is it a small amount you add?

    I have a love/hate with BSS too. I love how I can feel them so much!

    I use 1\2 tsp cayenne and I can taste it - adds a nice kick to my morning oats. BSS = my ass is burning today

    Yep, I have a journal. It's called 'A Work in Progress'...link in my siggy line.

    What do you use for flies? I'm debating changing up my cable incline fly and I'm not sure what to try. Do you use DBs?

    Going to find you now
    I work out at home some equipment is limited. So for flies I use db's.....I have a powertec rack with cables but its not double sided. I really need to invest in some more stuff though. My last big purchase a couple of years ago was a treadmill.....now I think a leg press would be the next big purchase.

    Oh no, you have sleep issues too? I've been suffering from poor sleep for a long time now. I've tried improving my sleep hygiene habits and have recently tried Sleepy Time tea and melatonin which neither seemed to work. Im currently taking Nytol which is an OTC sleep aid; not thrilled about it but it might be helping (not sure yet though). Poor sleep affects evvvvverything

    This has been an issue for years but it seems the older I get the worse it gets. I get maybe 3-4 hrs sleep on a good night..most times only a couple. By the time I actually do get to sleep its just about time to get up again. I have tried the natural route - herbal teas, melatonin, no computer, cell phone, tv before bed thing, nothing. So about a month ago I actually bought some OTC sleeping pills and have tried 1 on occasion. Still nothing. Whats different about Nytol, I wonder. May check into that..

    Great workout again! How come you split your workout in the day - is that just a time issue? Your fibre amount reminds me I need more!
