I manged to get some pictures taken of me over the weekend. I am not totally psyched with my progress, but it is satisfactory. When I started lifting weights in October 2012 I weighed 140 pounds. Last time I checked my weight it was bouncing at the 170 mark.
I know that this is not all muscle. Before I came back from India last year I bought some very nice pants. By the end of December the pants no longer fit me. I did not just out grow the waist, but my legs can hardly fit into the skinny things. It feels so good out growing clothes. I can not remember the feeling especially from my adult life. I have been wearing the same pants that I got before I started college up until last winter; not any more.
I have always had a problem eating. If I could go without eating I would love it. Eating is a hassle and takes too much of my time. Though my life revolves around the growing of food I really wish I could thrive without actually having to consume any. With that being said I eat a lot and seeming all the time. I do not want to out line my diet in this post but I think I am getting close to 4000 calories a day. Each meal I see something else that could be added to get a little more calories but it takes time to build up the amount of food that can be consumed .
The meals that add the most to my frame are my amazing green super smoothies. To create:
2 mangoes (my tree is rocking right now)
1/3 cup hulled raw sunflower seed
3 tbs hemp seed
1 tbs coconut oil
Many leaves chocolate mint
a hand full of sunflower sprouts
Throw all of this in a vitamix or nutribullet, let it rip and then get ripped.
