Just a couple of ideas/things to ponder
You may want to try getting more of your calories from fat and lowering your carb intake. Especially lowering any processed carbs or late day carbs.
Without doing alot of math, I'd say it looks like you are averaging 1.5 or so pounds a week gain. Unless you've really amped the training to match, I'd guess you've added20-25lbs of fat. It will tend to gather in the places you have mentioned or those for which you are genetically predisposed to carry.
As a former fatty-you really need to be careful in your weight gain. I would back off 100g carbs and add 20g of good fats. This backs off your per day caloric consumption by aprox 200+ cals and equals about a half pound per week. It may also help you with potential water gain from all of those carbs.
I would also reevaluate your workout. If you aren't taking advantage of the cals. you are not taking full advantage of the cycle.
I don't like to do intense cardio when in a cycle like this. You may want to do moderate cardio, but do it more often.
