Beware of knock-off's and copy cats! lol
So I figured I'd start my journal for my last couple weeks as a natty so when the weights suddenly go waaaay up, we'll know what to attribute to the dianabol. Kinda setting a baseline so to speak. The journal will continue as I cross to the dark side and will include my thoughts and questions on that as well, so as boring as this may be for the Vets I'd appreciate if you guys were in on it just to supervise and advise as needed
I am currently 205lbs and 5'11". My body fat is around 12-14% as measured by calipers. I think I have a funny looking body to be honest. Long torso, long arms and I carry almost all of my fat on my starting at the bottom of my chest to just below my belly button and around to my lower back. My legs have separation and my arms aren't ripped per se but I don't have fatcepts... I actually plan on asking my doctor at my next appointment about whether I have a problem with insulin sensitivity. My moms is a type II diabetic and I have a hell of a time losing fat.
My diet is as follows:
10 egg whites
1/2 cup oats
3 slices turkey bacon
Meal 2, 3, 4
6 ounces chicken breast
3 cups greens
oil and vin dressing
6 ounces Beef or 12 Ounces Fish
3 Cups greens or broccoli/asparagus/green beans/lentils
oil and vin dressing or almond butter
1 Cup cottage cheese
Per Someanddone and MAYO's suggestion I have started bracketing my workouts with a mix of carbs and whey. About 30 minutes before lifting I have some vitargo or maize with a scoop of whey isolates. Post workout I have 2 scoops vitargo with 1 scoop fruit punch kool aid. 40 minutes after that I have 2 scoops whey isolates. Thanks for the suggestion guys!
Can't wait to see where this takes me!
Good deal. I'll be following along POB.
Just curious, are you going to make any changes to your diet or training when your cycle starts?

40 Minutes after PW Carbs has 2 Scoops Isopure.
Its now a few hours later and the pump is just going away. Sore already which is a first. I'm never sore until the next day. Maybe its MAYO and SaD's carb fest thing, who knows!
Yeah volume is more what I was thinking of. I started my cycle yesterday and have been contemplating changes to my training. But I'm a volume junkie now so I'm not sure I will change too much. I'm also pretty close to 2g of protein also, but will still up slightly. I want to keep my bf sub 15 (around 10-11 now).
how about some before pics?
pics show so much i think. especially if you are trying something for the first time. i would take relaxed and flexed views and post them. be true so that you know what it really did for you. so many people take ones with everything just hanging out and then for the finals they take them all flexed. thats great if you are in a contest but for real life, keep it real!
Got up, ate and headed out to the gym for chest. Detours all over the place cause of parades and such... Couldn't get to the damn gym. I was so worked up about lifting today too. Got me into such a foul mood that by the time I got back home - which took 40 minutes instead of 12 minutes due to detours, I needed to take a friggin anti-anxiety pill to chill. Guess I'll just hit the treadmill to work it out I'll get some pics posted up after while I'm all sweaty and gross.
This journal now new and improved (maybe not improved lol) with pics (of my fat ass)!!!

nice belt, i didnt know they still made them like that
thanks for the pics, cant wait to see how things change!
Good starting point with the pics POB. As of now I'd say that Back was your strength and Chest your weakness. But lighting is bad in those pics. Let's get this thing rolling!
