    I might let you have my bolognese sauce recipe which you could use for lasagne too. When I have people for dinner they always request my lasagne. In fact, people often invite themselves over for my lasagne. So that would be 2 of the 3 recipes. I really can't give you the other one, sorry.

    Have the outlaws over today, gotta try and get my lifting in before they come!

    Ragu alla bolognese

    2oz unsalted butter
    3.5oz smoked bacon or pancetta
    1 of each very finely chopped small onion, small carrot, celery stalk
    8oz lean minced beef
    4oz lean minced/finely chopped pork
    5tbsp red wine
    1.5tbs tomato puree
    3.5fl oz meat stock
    salt and pepper
    5tbsp full fat milk
    Fresh oregano (if required)

    Heat the oil, butter and pancetta in a deep, heavy based saucepan. Fry gently for 2-3 mins and added the chopped vegetables and continue til the vegetables are soft, you are NOT trying to brown them. Add the minced beef and lightly brown. Add the red wine and boil rapidly for 2 mins until the liquid has almost evaporated. Add the tomato puree and stock to the pan. Season if required and cook for 5 mins stirring frequently. Meanwhile, bring the milk to simmering point in a seperate pan. Pour the milk over the meat mixture and stir thoroughly. Cook, uncovered, over the lowest heat for at least 2 hours. It shouldn't boil! Season at the end, if required and add fresh oregano if you feel the need (I usuallly don't feel the need).

    Serve with spaghetti or linguine. Freshly grated/shaved Parmesan optional.

    Now I bet you are hungry GGR!!!!!!

    The secret recipe has only 4 ingredients. If I tell you it, you'd end up eating it every night and becoming a massive fatty! Prosciutto is probably the healthiest ingredient. Or maybe the egg yolks!

    Maybe I'll slip the ingredients in some posts randomly for you. Wine? No. Cream? Kind of! It doesn't require cooking. Actually a nice addition to it as a sixth ingredient is a little red pesto!

    Yesterday's back workout was pretty good. Struggled a little on chins again but I tried to up the weight and I am heavier than I was so that's ok. I am much preferring my 4-6 rep week than my 8-10 rep week.

    The last couple of days have taken a turn for the worse privately and, as a result, dirt has suffered a lot. I do now have a clear run for the next 4 weeks do am gonna have to be a clean as possible to make this 8 week mini bulk successful. I am, however, looking like I lift again when wearing clothes

    This says it all... and as lean as you started out, I highly doubt you look fat in any way, shape, or form with your clothes off... so congrats!

    I mix casein, some Green & Blacks cocoa powder (about 10g), a teaspoon or 2 of truvia sweetener and iced water. Give it a whisk and you are ready to go. Alternatively use normal temp water and refrigerate. It doesnt't freeze well, in case you wanna try!

    Nah, not fat, but definitely not as lean as I was. 2 weekends of not caring what I eat has seen to that. That said, I intend to be as clean as a whistle for the next 3.5 weks before 2 nights away for my anniversary. As it's unlikely I'll really be anywhere that necessitates me being shirtless any time this year I'll be happy at my current bodyfat level.

    Had a great delt and tri workout today. Maybe it was all the extra food over the last few days. Maybe it was my pre workout formula that i moved back to 40 mins pre lifting. Maybe it was a deliberate intention to work hard after the poor diet. Maybe a combination, either way, I liked it!!!!!! Had a great pump from the AAKG too.

    Added 20 mins LIC cardio post lifting as I didn't get my fasted cardio in yesterday.

    And it's raining...........................

    I saw no men in green tights! Though the sheriff of Nottingham is still a position held by somebody!

    Fasted cardio done. Weighed in 173,5. That again is an inflated weight due to some poor food choices on Monday and Tuesday. But that's ok, I can still see my 4 pack and, for the most part, my training is going good!

    Well, the last 5 days have been a bit of a whirlwind. Had some family stuff to sort out short notice and diet went to pot on Sunday but, other than that, I'm doing ok. Doing a little extra LIC cardio this week as I k've put on more fat than I would like.

    Weights and/or reps are up on almost every exercise. But not chins! And it's back day today. I have dropped caffeine pre workout and feeling better pumps from the arginine as a result.

    Gonna try some sumo deadlifts today rather than use the hex bar.

    Had a slight reshuffle on my diet, just moving some carbs about so I eat a little less in my last meal of the day but cals and macro's the same.

    Weigh in day tomorrow but look better in the mirror than last week. Still, it's all too slow a process, need to get the next phase of my life sorted so I get me some real supplements

    Fasted cardio done, felt a bit jittery from the Yohimbine but not as jittery as when I take it before LIC!

    Yesterday's back workout was great, even chins were better. Not good, but better.

    Weighed in today at 172lbs so down on last week and up in total 5lbs in 4 weeks. Happy with that, didn't want more than 1lb per week and after the weekends I've had only 5lbs is a bit of a result.

    Quality not quantity!

    GGR, it's 6 years since I bulked so don't feel bad, you'll get there, keep hitting your goals and soon you too can be chewing down on extra, plain chicken!

    It's nice to not be hungry anymore but I was for the longest time!

    Weekends have been disappointing really. This weekend is no real exception as its fathers day in the uk. My little girl and my Mrs has baked ALOT of cookies for me. Seriously, I think there's about 2000cals minimum in this batch. And theres a food festival in town this weekend which I'll visit tomorrow. I'm bulking, I train he'd nd I still have and so I'll have whatever takes my fancy, if anything!

    Last couple of training sessions have been good, nearly all weights up, exception of leg press which I experimented with some different feet placements.

    Not alot to report. Other than the cookies were great and horrendously calorific. I ate less at the food festival than i could have done but then I had a menu tasting the day after. So, another poor weekend of hitting macro's.

    Workouts all good and up in weight and/or reps on every exercise.

    Weight today 174lbs so up 7lbs in 5 weeks. A little too much so I'm also hoping there's no weight gain in the next week.

    7lbs in 5 weeks is great... not too much, not too little, IMO.
