I have been eating a low calorie diet for the past few months because i was not consistently in the gym and did not want to put on fat. Now that i am rededicated in the gym i am going to start a bulk. My last bulk i got as high as 245-250lbs and had made very solid strength gains, but moving across country, quitting job etc. got me out of the gym, so i changed my diet and lost a lot of weight. Anyway, time to get back where i was and beyond!

OMFG i was EXHAUSTED during SLDL's, thought i was going to throw up/pass out after my last set. Glad i did my leg day, but jesus christ it was tiring. Living in Colorado now instead of California makes a huge difference in my stamina.

In reference to the 3+ month gap between journal posts, i keep a written journal of all my lifts that i take to the gym with me everyday, i just hadn't been updating it online.
My body weight and strength gains have been progressing well since i started my serious commitment to lifting in the middle of July and i am excited to have them both continue.
I try to eat as much as i can everyday, however i know that i could be eating significantly more if i REALLY pushed it. I take cellmass, which is basically just creatine, one scoop, twice a day as recommended. I supplement my food intake with a protein/calorie shake usually once a day as well. I seem to be plateaued right at 250lbs, so im going to have to step up my caloric intake!
I made a post in the bodybuilding section about my recent experiences if anyone is interested :)

Day off from the gym. Ate a lot and slept a lot, hoping for maximum recovery. Went out to the park with my roommate and threw the football around, we ran some routes for some baby cardio, nothing too strenuous.
