Hey guys. Started my first day of recording my eating and the Stronglifts 5x5. I cycled in to school as well which is roughly 7 miles.

Would love some advice on the cycle/jogging thing. I'm pretty thin right now. The goal is to get from 147lbs to 170lbs and to start seeing some muscle mass. Will the cycling and jogging slow the process down?

Below is my intake today. I always thought I ate so much and that I had a really fast metabolism, turns out I was completely wrong. Now that I am tracking what I eat I can't believe how I was eating before.

Went hiking with my wife around the beautiful Peak District yesterday. I brought plenty of food which is posted below. Along with my stronglifts 5x5 workout I have committed to getting up every morning at 6am for at least 30 days. This is my 3rd day. I'm a little tired but I love it. It's the discipline and habit that I have been searching for.

So my program is:
6am rise every morning (no matter what time I got to bed).
3200 KCal a day
Stick to the stronglifts 5x5 workout religiously

Goal:
More discipline
optimum health
gain 25lbs as fast as possible
gain noticeable muscle mass

This was my intake yesterday. I'll post todays at the end of the day.

Tomorrow is my second day lifting (adding weight is exciting even though it's not much). It's also the 4th day of my diet and 6am mandatory rise. The London marathon was today. It was amazing to see all the athletes. I would love to represent active vegans next year, but first I need to get strong.

I loved lifting yesterday. I felt energized from it. Later on, around 4pm I start to get tired. Attached is yesterdays intake. I'm feeling a bit sick from the eating. I think its just my body getting used to it. I'm hoping that this will get easier in a little bit. Image

This is the Last two days intake. I've been experiencing a bit of indigestion the last few days, water helps. I had papaya yesterday and so so far I feel good. I finished my 3rd day workout and my fourth is tomorrow. I'm on my seventh morning of getting up at 6am religiously. I've never felt better. It is amazing what you can get done in the few hours of the early morning. Ever since I read this article http://stronglifts.com/how-to-wake-up-early-the-definitive-guide/ I've been determined to get up.

Had a good day of eating. Lots of calories. Looking forward to tomorrows workout. Also bought a scale today, I'm currently at 147lbs (66.5kg). Lets hope this eating works.

Last two days. I've been trying to boost my intake to 5000 calories a day. Right now I'm weighing in at 145 (first thing in the morning) which is depressing but hopefully this eating will help. I'm definitely finding it hard to eat that much. I'm constantly full with no passion for food anymore. Its for the greater good though.'
