I finally decided to get started on Var, since I'm 5 weeks out from my first show and my fat % won't budge.

age: 45
height 5'1.5"
weight 115 (as of today--hoping to move down in the next 4.5 weeks until peak week)
fat 15% and refuses to move

Medications (my thyroid was taken out due to cancerous nodules):
Microgestin 1/20 (birth control)

Hazmat fat burner (half dose) started 6 days ago
Fish oils
Multi Vs
Melatonin at night

Started on var--7.5 mg per day for now, I'm on day 5. My biggest fear as far as side effects is changes in personality, since I have kids.

Water 1+ gallon
Protein 136 (ground turkey, chicken, eggwhites, tilapia and Mutant Whey once a day)
Carbs 53 (oats, blackberries, quinoa, green beans, broccoli and brussels sprouts)
Fat 50 (from the meats, olive oil/coconut oil, natural peanut/almond butter)
Daily total calories 1,263

Split supersets and 12 minute sprints (except on legs day) + one day HIT (Crossfit style for time) + 30 minutes moderate cardio later each day, 4 days work one day rest then start over--coach will probably change it all on me this week again, lol

    minor update: I did notice I'm feeling a bit stronger at the gym the past few days, but I'm not sure if this is due to the cycle starting or just natural progress, since I push it every day. Also noticed a slight change in my BO... came through the deodorant. Not sure if it's related.

    So, one week in; No side effects as of yet, whatsoever. The only consistent factor is added strength, and seeing it especially on isolation exercises like curls and such.
