Hey guys, pretty new to the forum here (and to lifting) and have found a lot of good info that i have been trying to apply. I am having a really hard time keeping motivated, mostly because I have been lifting for a couple months now and am not really seeing results. I am stronger, yes, however to be honest I think i am looking fatter than ever lol (dont know if i am laughing because it is funny or to take the pain away :P). I thought maybe if i kept a journal you guys could help me know what i am doing wrong.

I am 5'8 and 152 lbs
According to my scale i am about 15% body fat (dont know how accurate that is)

As far as diet goes I eat about the same thing every day.

8:30 packet of oatmeal and 3g of creatine monohydrate
10:30 muscle milk shake
12:30 Peanut butter and jelly sandwich x2 (sometimes i switch out one for a tunafish sandwich) with a banana or apple and some vitamins.
2:30 granola bar and/or rice cake
5:30 pre-workout NO Shotgun drink (1 1/2 scoops)
8:00 post-workout protein drink and 3g of creatine monohydrate (i have been using Goat Whey, dont know how good of protein that is)

During the day i am always drinking, staying well hydrated.

I work out on Monday/Tuesday then rest Wed and repeat the workout on Thurs/Friday.
