well, let me tell you... I am the 'I've been working my ass off for one week like a mad women and deserve results type' :]
I also have the genetically disposition to gain muscle like a mad women. I don't need protein powder to start bulking. If I use these muscles, they grow. I am okay with this. I enjoy lifting weights and I've learned to incorporate a massive amount of cardio to my week 40-60 minutes after I finish my sets, plus my mileage warm up. So burning an insane amount of weight and eating at my BMR I am still gaining. I look fabulous, but gaining non the less when I am trying to get shredded here. am up 5 lbs. It just irritates me- I know, I k now, the scale doesnt tell the whole story, don't obsess, take measurments, look at physical results. I know. I also have a number and I am determined to reach it.
There is some comic relief in all of this. Although I gain like a man, my husband, gains like a skinny girl. So while I am lifting and doing an insane amount of calorie burning cardio and eating clean and getting on the scale going damn it, I ***** gained again! My husband is lifting heavy, drinking protein shakes, eating everything and anything he can get his hands on like a garbage disposal and getting on the scale and saying damn it, I'm ****** down! We are so ying yang as far as fitness and the healthy lifestyle and genetics.
He is trying to bulk and getting shredded.
I am trying to get shredded and bulking.
The biggest plus is our daughter has the genetic disposition to be TALL, have a fast metabolism, and get that muscle definition all at once. So, perk.
