Okay, last update before vacation. This is also the last week of my blast. Weight is up 13 lbs.
Strength, recovery, and joints are at an all time high. It is really silly the amount of strength I have gained. For example; before say I was doing BP sets of 225 and struggling on the last set, I am now doing sets of 255 and often I am mad at myself for not upping the weight at least on the last set. Similar situation for all of lifts. Almost makes it hard to get 100% out of your workouts.
Visited good friends we hadn't seen in several weeks. Friends wife called later and asked if I was on "roids". She is unaware of my TRT. Wife echoed the same to me after the phone call. She asked me if I was taking anything else. I said no and that I have been just eating and training more. Felt a little bad but didn't want her to worry.
I don't know what it is called, something like body dismorphia or something but I now know how people can suffer from this. I have had several people comment in the last 6 weeks or so on my size (good things). I have also had to start buying larger shirts (been needing to for a little while but not as much and I am a cheap bastard). I know I am bigger but I really dont feel like I am bigger. I see stuff I need to improve on more than anything. I am happy with myself but it does give me a little insight to people that have a bad problem with this. I guess sometimes we can be our own worst critic/enemy.
More good; sides have been mild. I know I have some water retention. Libido has been fine but perhaps a little lower. Anxiety has been the worst but managable.
Pants are tighter. Diet was as clean as it should have been the last few weeks. Pissed at myself for this. Live and learn I guess. Part of the pants issue is that a lot of the tightness is in the thighs and the ass. I know I have made good gains in these areas. I do not have big legs so it is nice to see it but the pants are a pain in the ass. I don't know how you guys with big legs find pants to fit.
I kind of don't want to stop the blast. I will because I know I will feel better but it makes it hard to give up the results I am getting. I did start TRT after all to stop feeling like crap.
I will update after vacation and update in the weeks after to see what I retain. I will also do this again but it will not be for a while.
