I'm only 2 weeks in to my bulk and it seems like I've either gained weight too quickly or that I'm holding insane amounts of water for some reason. Yeah, I've noticed more energy and strength in the gym, but in my day to day life I feel like I'm dragging and always worried about eating enough. I'm only eating 26-2800 cals a day, but when I started I was at 144 and only 2 weeks in I'm at 154. Not sure why, and I haven't had any increase in size (it's only been 2 weeks).
Honestly trying to decide if bulking is the right thing for me, I know to get bigger you have to eat more, but to me it becomes an unwelcome necessity. Tired of being small (145 with 13.5" arms and 41" chest) but then I don't want to lose all the progress I had to get as lean as I was.
Just trying to figure out what I may be doing wrong and what I can do to fix it. Anything is welcome.
