Monday, October 14, 2019 - Welcome, guest user!

I’m off and running: 1st day bulk report.

My first day of bulking could not have gone better! I had to pay careful attention to the time all day yesterday because I’m still not adjusted to the new meal plan. Some of the food items (such as brown rice and sweet potatoes) require a fair amount of cooking time, and I have to be on my toes to make sure everything is ready on time. Thinking far enough ahead to make sure I… [Read more]

BULK!; Bigger Faster Stronger.

Today’s the big day – the first day of my 2008 bulk! I just finished my breakfast (here’s my 2008 bulk meal plan), and I am absolutely stuffed. The food was so good that I didn’t mind forcing it all down. I think the reason I wasn’t as hungry as usual this morning is because last night I had my final cheat meal (pizza and bread), and I’m feeling very bloated from it. My official… [Read more]

Tomorrow’s the big day – join me!

I’m so bloated right now from yesterday’s “free day” that taking pre-bulk measurements this morning would be inaccurate and pointless. I’m also planning to have a final day enjoying a relaxed diet before my bulk starts tomorrow, so I’ll probably wait to take my measurements on Tuesday. I expect that my weight will actually drop the first few days of my bulk while I shed the excess water. So, tomorrow’s the big day. I can’t… [Read more]

Rainbow rings; Big grocery shopping day!

I fell asleep last night with my contact lenses in (I’ve never done that before in my entire life) and now this morning, even after taking the contact lenses out, there are rainbow rings around all the lights and everything looks hazy. It’s almost exactly like how things look after swimming in a pool and getting chlorine in your eyes. Thankfully now that I’ve been up for a couple of hours everything is almost back… [Read more]

Random pre-bulk ramblings.

Happy Friday everyone! I’m doubly excited about this weekend because after all the planning and anticipation I’ll finally be starting my bulking diet on Sunday, and my bulking training will commence on Monday. I’ll be doing a complete set of measurements on Sunday or Monday morning, and I’m certain that they are going to be quite bad (for me). I’ve lost a lot of size over the past year, and my body fat has been… [Read more]

I have Lisa’s cold, but I’m OK; Email problem; Off from work today.

I definitely picked up whatever bug Lisa has, and I started to feel it a bit yesterday afternoon. I actually feel pretty good this morning, just a slight scratchy throat. I decided at the last minute yesterday afternoon that the smart play would be to skip my workout and allow my body its full resources to fight off the cold. I don’t want to take any chances when it comes to starting my bulk as… [Read more]

Still feeling good; Final workout of the week today.

Lisa’s still suffering from the effects of her cold, but thankfully I’m still feeling 100% and don’t seem to have picked up anything from her. I’m going to train today, and hope that I don’t regret it. If I do get her cold, I want my body to have full resources to fight it off, so hopefully training today won’t wind up being a mistake. I’m already going to have the next four days off… [Read more]

Lisa is sick; Turtle update; Big project launch went well.

Unfortunately Lisa is sick. It’s not too bad – just a cold – but with my bulk starting on Monday I really hope I don’t get what she has. I need to be 100% on Monday, so I’m trying to stay away from her. So far so good, I feel just fine. Tomorrow will be my final workout (chest) before my bulk starts. As I mentioned a few days ago, my leg day will change… [Read more]

Short update, work issues this morning.

Well, I apologize but this is going to have to be a brief update. Today is the launch day of a huge project that I’ve been working on for the past several months, and I’ve got some last minute details to handle this morning. On top of that I’ve also got an entire apartment complex that just lost Internet service, so I’ve got to figure out what’s going on there, too. It’s not even 7:00… [Read more]

So hot outside; HIIT cardio today.

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! Yesterday Lisa and I blew off cleaning the house, so this morning we’ll be tackling that project. I should probably also get outside and wash the cars, too, but lately it’s been so hot and muggy that being outside is not at all enjoyable. The 3+ hours it takes me to do the yard work each week is about all I can take at this point. I… [Read more]
