A quick bio on myself:

I have about 3-4 yrs of weight training under my belt. Only about 1.5yr of "educated" weight training. I completed a very long 5x5 once already last yr. and by very long i mean about 5 months, I just kept getting stronger so i never stopped. Of course every 6 weeks i took one week off because it is very taxing. At the time I was deployed overseas, and when i came home i did about a month R and R. After that i developed a Cist on my tailbone which i had to get removed and put me out of the game for a while. Then i did three months of Military training, and moved from Oklahom to New York. I am all settled in now, and i'm starting back up. Not that i ever quit entirley working out, it just wasn't as regimented as i would like.

My goals are strength and size. My diet is going to be tough due to my job. I understand that i will gain some excess fat during the process, i dont have the time/money/knowledge/discipline to handle a "clean" bulk so i wont even bother lying to myself.

I am 69" or 5'9" and 195 lb.
I have a solid build due to my weight lifiting history w/ a bit of excess fat in the mid section from a little to much bulking if you know what i mean LOL

My diet will consist of realitivley low carbs, trying to keep the intake too the earlier part of the day.

Roughley 3000 Calories -- 250 gr Protein.

Some of you might tell me my protein intake is too low, i just cant afford $$ to eat that much. (Sams Club, buy in bulk, sups, etc i know) 250 is a minumum and i will eat more whenever i can.

Supplements: Creatine Mono and Protein (Which i dont really like to call a suplement)

Well yesterdays diet went pretty good, minus the end of the night, just a little slippage. A good freind was going away so I had 4 light beers, ribs, and potatoe chips (thanks to the beers). But i've decieded to detox and keep my beer intake to four a week on non-workout evenings. Heres how yesterdays diet went.

Pre Workout

25 grm Whey, I serv Dextrose

Post Workout

3 Eggs English Muffin w/ 1 serv Penut Butter

Snack

2oz Penuts and a low fat Cheese Stick

Lunch

5 oz Chicken Breast

1 cup White Rice
Snack

Protien Drink 110 cals 15 grams
Low fat Cheese Stick

Snack

2 cans Albacore White Tuna w/ 2tbspn Lite Mayo

Then thats where this happened

1/2 Rack Baby Back Ribs w/ too much BBQ sauce

4 Labats Blue Light (beer)

Too Many Potatoe Chips (probabley 4 servings)

**need to add more protein, and cals

TUESDAY
25 Aug 2009

Todays Diet

Calories: 3,355
Fat: 162.9
Carbs: 119.4
Protein: 329

Today went O.K the fat content is high because I got alot of protein from baked whole chicken wings, (80gr) which are very fatty.

Wish i could eat like this everyday, only 50 grams from shakes!
