Hey guys I'm starting this in hopes it will help me keep my goals in mind and hopefully you all can support me in my mission!
So I'm 27 years old, and 6'3"
I currently weigh 180.lbs and am @ 16% body fat
My goal is to get over 200.lbs without increasing bodyfat.

And honestly I really start to look bad at 18% body fat so right now I feel like I just look ok (this is for my self and my opinion of myself, I would by no means judge anyone else by these standards), I would really like to get down to 12% body fat at 200lbs :popcorn:

Butt I'll just take this one step at a time so for now I just want to get that extra 20lbs of muscle!

My diet is pretty clean vegan stuff not raw or anything but very little junk food. I will make updates in here with food eaten as often and accurate as possible, hopefully once a day :D

Supplements- *I will be picking up some stuff later this week *List to come**

Exercise, I love to just sit in the gym and lift weights its just whats fun for me, I do kind of a mix between body building and powerlifting regiments, currently I go every other day but I may start going more often soon! & I go for walks once a day with my wife and our dog usually at least half an hour some times 90 minutes. +1 more thing I start a new job as a furniture mover tomorrow so I'll get paid for some of my exercise too HA!

If I'm brave enough I may even post a before pic too :confused1:

Any way, thanks for reading, comments and suggestions are great. I really appreciate all the support I can get!!

*Progress
2014 starting weight
01/01/14----180.lbs
01/26/14----183.lbs +3
01/31/14----184.lbs +1

Thanks!!
Haha so far so good, my back is still pretty good for a tall guy lol. But that first week was great for my underdeveloped forearms! I'm starting to get used to it now I still have tightness between my shoulderblades at night though, but nothing serious.

On another note I saw my chiropractor for the first time in months (I've been a little broke and putting this visit off, even while knowing I was all out of whack!) and got put back in order. I had a rib out on both sides and a crooked neck, but all better now, I feel taller wider and I can breath a little easier too :D

Yea I really like it because of the flavor and how easily it mixes with everything, like smoothies etc. So tasty!
Good news I weighed in at 183.lbs today (+3), yea I know you can't really count 3.lbs but if its consistent its there right.
And I saw that our WholeFoods had a 25% off deal going yesterday for supps so I picked up a bottle of this
Image

Did arms and shoulders and light core today feeling really good.

Yesterday was legs chest and back.

I think I might take tomorrow off.

Thanks for the comments! Really encourages me to check in here more often and keep on track :)

:? so I hurt myself yesterday at work (I Drive a box truck and move furniture for a staging company), fortunately I'll be better tomorrow.

I was carrying a night stand (pressed against my chest) up some low height clearance twisty stairs in a home, and smacked my head on the low ceiling, which caused my face to collide with the nightstand in my arms. Didn't think much of it at the time and finished my day..
When I woke up this morning I could hardly lift my head from my pillow! My neck got really messed up and my face looks like someone got a good punch on my right cheek, kinda embarrassing honestly LOL!
I got the day off and went to see my Chiropractor who got me all straitened out :D
I'll be hitting the weights hard tomorrow morning! Arms and Shoulders are on the slate, and whatever is not still sore, in the morning, from Monday.
Cheers:coffee2:

Took the tank (aka the tiny 2 door Scoobaru Impreza 2.5rs) to the gym today.

I got goals!!
Image
Today was a good workout, arms and shoulders.
I have leg days too lol I just have been lazy about writing my workouts since I had one delete itself when it was almost done :(

Tomorrow is legs and I need to weigh my self again, keeping my fingers crossed.

Ok I lied no gym today. We got more snow yesterday and more today. I've decided its best to wait for the conditions to get better than to risk it right now ):

Hey guys so I've been basically snowed in for a couple days now, more or less.
Today I couldn't take it anymore and did a lower body workout with just my body weight, totally not my thing but desperate times take desperate measures, right?

I did
Butt touching ankles squats
" jump
^on heels
^ and on Toes.
Standing calf raises.
both one legged and 2 legged
Lunges

I did them in sets until exhaustion 3-4 sets of each, didn't count reps maybe a hundred or so to begin with then shorter as I got burnt out.

I was really surprised at what a great pump I got in my legs from this! Usually I get sore before any serious pump on leg days but this made me feel like my legs were growing before my eyes. I hate to admit it but it felt really good and I feel like there is something to gain doing explosive work like this and the increased range of motion vs normal squats/lifts etc. I may work these days into my regular routine more often from here on out.
I'm curious as to how bad the day after legday DOMS will be tomorrow LOL!
If I'm not up too late doing homework tonight I will try to weigh in tomorrow in the AM. I'm really wishing for 185+ :)

Thanks for reading!
