It seems I have taken on more than I can handle on a daily basis. With the combination of everything going on right now I will get anywhere from 3-8 hours of sleep to get most of my work done.
I am recently eating big.
My morning shake is usually:
Banana, Grow! Whey, oatmeal, natural peanut butter, milk & ice.
Right after that i’ll have a 2 egg omelette with cheese and peppers.
While at work I eat two wraps with Applegate Farms lunch meat (chicken, roast beef and cheese), nuts, clif bars(medium GI) and drink Kefir, V8 and water. I usually reach about 2000 cal by the end of the work day.
After work I’ll have lunch meat or tuna steaks. To wrap the night up I have another shake:
Chocolate Metabolic Drive, natural peanut butter, cottage cheese, water and ice. (better than ice cream) That’s over 3000 cal/day
I am using CW’s total body training. I look forward to deadlifts(265 max), squats, dips, pull-ups(8), BB bench etc. (switching exercises regularly)
My real dilemma is that some days, like tonight, I will go to the gym and then go do work until 3am and get a few hours of sleep.
I also go rock climbing on Tue which eliminates a day at the gym. I go to the gym Mon and Thur. I enjoy Spike before working out (could use some energy!) and Surge during and after.
I’m 170 (160 a month ago), not very strong (yet), and hoping that I’m not entirely wasting time. I will get more rest during the summer.
Is my diet ok? Is my lifestyle hopeless for real gains? I’ve lost all muscle definition in my abs but I don’t care (for now), bulking is bulking right? I won’t stop going to the gym, just curious.
