(Now) 56 y.o. male living just south of the Alaska panhandle in Canada. 5' 11" Currently in a slow cut phase for weight lifting.
Update Feb 21, 2014
Broke through the 165 barrier.
At 55, I'm definitely in the best shape of my life, but what's more, my food now serves other physical goals. I'm excited for the future. I am no longer food's slave. I am food's master.
I've had a good two month run bulking. Weight gain (after gaining back glycogen and water) was kept to 6 pounds from Mar 1 - Apr 30. The plan now is to hold my calories 200 above maintenance (that didn't happen) per day on average to go into a recomposition phase. Hopefully I will see strength gains while losing body fat. The calipers will be my gauge.
Approaching my short, weight loss cycle. I expect to be on it for about 2 months. I begin June 1.
Room for 2 eggs. Tomorrow the cut is on. Down 1000 calories from todays intake. Oh well. I should be able to manage this. My last weight loss took over a year. This one should take two months or a little more.
The tragic loss of my dearly beloved golden retriever Ginger. Two days later I was points south to move my dad. Incredible stress and rapid uncontrolled weight loss from stress.
Bulking begins for body building.
October. Yay! Tika!
30 pound increase. Augh. Back on the cut.
