Recently I have been training in attempt not to lose what muscle I do have. 2 days a week of full body exercises along with 2 to 3 days a week of cardio.
Up until October I was 225 plus, pushing a 40 plus inch waist and I am only 69" tall.
Stress, groin injury and too much beer played a huge part in my loss of everything I had gained earlier. At one time was 230, strong and huge, well comparatively speaking.
When I return from the cruise next week I will be looking for a new routine to increase size.
My eating is under control, over the last six months I have eliminated alomst all alcohol from my diet, less than 10% of what I was drinking before and this only on one maybe 2 days a week at most. And then only a few, not 18 to 20 like I was having before.
I do not eat refined foods, fried foods, sugar, or artificial sweeteners at all. I eat six times a day and separate my foods (carbs. and proteins not consumed at the same time). Also fat is frequently only consumed in the form of olive oil or fish oil.
I use the Jefit on my Droid to track my workouts and haven't figured out how to export them so for this log, upon my return, I will update it every day I lift with my new stats.
I am experienced in lifting but just not in creating routines or tweaking it for the best results. I feel like a novice who knows how to do what needs to be done, just not always the best way to do it.
Feedback is appreciated and thank for the comments so far.
As far as the kids go? I went from a lonely life travelling for a living who no one cared about whether I was home or not but my cat, to a full house with an awesome wife (who trains as well) and kids of every age. I would not trade my new life for the old for anything in the world.
