Your dinner sounds yummy!

12 hours of sleep isn't nearly enough (but you know this). Get some sleep! :wink:

First I'll provide my excuse for my sorry workout. I've had about 12 hours sleep total this week.


You lie!! :P

Quesadillas with black beans, spinach and vegan cheese, fresh guacamole, vegan sour cream, fire roasted salsa, blue corn chips and Corona with fresh lime to wash it down! YUM!


Wow. Does sound yummy. Lucky guy to have someone prepare that delicious food for you!! :wink:

Some Pittsburgh Gyms - I have no idea how what they look like but they are all in close proximity to your new apartment.

This one sounded hardcore! :twisted:

Sunday, January 1

Gym closed today, so did some simple stuff.

Alternating sets of push-ups and sit-ups: 15,15,20,25,25 for a total of 100 reps each. Took a two mile walk, was going to do pull-ups while out, but the local high school has built a 12 foot chain link fence around the pull-up bars since I was last there this summer. :?


Monday, January 2

Pullups/chinups 3,3,2

Dips - 10bw, 8bw+25, 6bw+35, 4bw+45 Finally got to add some weight to my dips, it's good fun! Left shoulder felt a slight tweak though, so left it at 4 sets.

More Pullups/chinups 3,3,2

Seated Cable Rows - 3x6x170 pounds

Shrugs - 10x100, 10x200, 10x300

Tricep Cable Press Downs 3x10x100 pounds superseted with ez-bar curls 3x5x100 pounds.

You know very well why I emailed you the menu! You thought I was bulking again just because my day included two bagels, two bean burritos and I was having a second dinner at 10:30pm. I just needed to straighten you out and show you what an actual bulking day looks like for me. That menu was pretty standard in August and September when I put on 20 pounds or about 1kg per week! :shock: :P

Of course I may be bulking by default when I am closer to you! Thanks for the wonderful quesadilla meal, the rice and lentils, the veggies, the tofurkey, the pumpkin pie etc. etc. etc.! I'm looking forward to experiencing "THE" Veganmadre Pizza of VB&F fame, this Saturday night! :D

oooh - do i detect a certain disapproval of bulking from tiff?!

michael - you gotta be strong man! no woman likes her man bulking, but you gotta do it! i cant stand being the fat bastard around here - lets have a race to 260lb!!!!

funny thing is that my bulking menu looks nothing like the one above. my key to bulking is not to move. its easier for me to eat normally and move less than move the same and eat more. i was 242lb on the scales last night :shock:

I think it's more just jealousy really. It's hard for a woman to see the huge amount of food I eat while cutting! :D She may faint when she actually sees my bulking diet in action. :shock:

michael - you gotta be strong man! no woman likes her man bulking, but you gotta do it! i cant stand being the fat bastard around here - lets have a race to 260lb!!!!


You are unmistakeably the resident fat bastard now! :P You have me by a full 10 pounds, figures that now you want to make it a contest. :P

I'm going to spend a few months trimming the fat, can't let it accumulate forever you know! Second half of the year, who knows? I may push for 250 again! Maybe even more than 250. :twisted:

You should combine my menu and your sloth lifestyle! You would be one huge bastard then!

Thanks man! It is pretty hardcore, that's why I am giving it a rest. I just couldn't take it any more after months of being stuffed up to the neck.

And cool seeing you over here, taking a walk on the dark side. :lol:
