    I'm not a drinker anymore. I probably drink only 4x a year max.

    Had a cheeky weigh in today and gained 7lbs since Thursday! There is definite blurring of the abs though I suspect by the time Thursday's official weigh in takes place I will be down a few lbs!

    Did my fasted cardio this morning and will be lifting this evening (back). Needless to say, diet back on track!

    A week and some change and already 7lbs is great. Blurring of the abs, you think you are retaining some water?

    My back workout had some pretty good intensity but some fairly poor weights in some exercises. I've shortened my rest periods between sets and my chins really suffered! PWO meal is also final meal of the day-spaghetti bolognese, yay!

    Tomatoes, onion, garlic, tomato puree and some fresh oregano from the garden. Maybe a splash of Worcestershire sauce too. Extra lean minced beef (96/4) and wholewheat spaghetti. I think, other than lasagne, it's my favourite easy go to meal. Prefer red wine in it and sometimes add some carrots finely chopped too. Oh, and smoked bacon if I ever remember!

    sounds like homemade "spaghetti" as we call it over here.. ive been considering adding spaghetti to my list once back on maintenance.. do u use canned tomatoes and puree them urself or do u buy tomato puree? and do u use canned tomatoes?

    Canned chopped tomatoes, nothing added. I add purée that I buy separately. The smoked bacon really makes a difference, as does the red wine.

    What do you put in your tuna? I always make it my last meal of the day because I dread eating it lol. a little bit of mustard is all i'm doing now.

    Dill (is a spice) and a few kalamata olives, you can leave the olives out if you want to depending on your macros.

    Following this. I too am doing a lean bulk.

    So looking at your last two meals of the day, EFAs with your carbs. Not worried about any fat storage due to insulin ? Recently started separating my carbs and fats and it isnt all that convenient. Doing fish and nuts before bed, and tuna, soup and nuts for lunch. Whats your opinions on this? Keep the posts coming

    I add efa's to meals 1&3. Only to meal 4 if I have insufficient fats un that meal although with red meat they aren't really required. I max my fats at 12g it do per meal. More than that and yes, I would be concerned about fat storage, mixing them with carbs.

    My total fat intake is only 16% of my total cals.

    Weigh in day, up 2.25lbs from last week. That number will be artificially inflated due to last weekend, so I am keeping cals the same for another week. I don't want to gain any more than 1lb per week and preferably a bit less.

    Hams and glutes sore from my 2 workouts on Tuesday and it's legs day tomorrow! So, this morning I opted for fasted LIC rather than usual HIIT/LIC/interval. 40 mins only.

    No plans for today, it's Daddy Daughter day. Playtime, pop out for coffee maybe and eat my 4 meals. Meals today will be - pancakes with kiwi fruit, bacon sandwiches and apple, oats with chicken and green beans, brown rice with brocoli and burgers on the side! All within my allowed macro's!

    i love bacon sandwiches! i put mayo and ketchup on mine havent had one in a long time.. so what do u just compensate for additional fat by reducing elsewhere? also u say sandwiches ... is this correct?

    Plural yes I only use the medallions and they are only 3.5% fat. I get about 56g protein from my bread and bacon and about 10g of fat. I supplement with 14g worth of casein and some extra carbs from 1 scotch pancake (if you've heard of 'em?). I like half ketchup and half brown sauce on my but ties. I also like a softly fried egg in there but that would be too much fat in one meal!

    Medallion of bacon, just the oval meaty part not the 'tail' or any of the fat from the side!

    scotch pancakes - self raising flour, eggs, milk and caster sugar. Cooked on a hot grill, they are about 3-4 inches in diameter. Eat hot with butter and/or preserve and/or thick whipped cream! Not for cutting!

    But ties should read butties, sometimes called balm, bap, sarnie, cob or something else depending where you come from in the UK!

    Oh, and chalk and cheese I assumed was an international term, guess not?

    Not hefty enough. I still get hungry after a 700+ calorie meal! Which in a way is good, I was always a poor eater of large quantities of clean food and my bulks never ended well as I'd fill the diet with junk just to get the cals. I reckon I could easily fit in another 700 calorie meal every day. But I won't. Not yet!

    Trained legs today, kept delaying going to the gym. Didn't wanna train. Did it. Didn't enjoy it but a pretty good workout. Suspect I'll be sore again for a few days!

    It's The Queens Diamond Jubilee weekend and a double bank holiday. I am gonna try to stick to my macros despite a street party on Sunday, the in-laws visiting on Monday and friends on Tuesday!

    Bank holiday is a statutory holiday, I guess maybe like your memorial and labour days? You get the day off work? They Fall on a Monday. This year we get Tuesday off too because of the Queens celebration.

    Although I am working Monday

    Cheat and bi's done. The weights I lifted on chest weren't great, perhaps due to a combination of tiredness and shorter rest periods between sets. Wasn't too disappointed, it felt like I really hit my pecs and it's not my strength week anyway.

    Homemade lasagne for dinner. Mostly within my macro's!

    Ha ha, not likely. I have 3 great pasta recipes and that's about it! Bulking is more forgiving than cutting Si you can be a little more creative but, ultimately, you still need to be somewhere about your cals or else!
