  2. Wrong section. I think you might want to post in the nutrition or training sections to get your workout / diet on track

  3. I think you should look at your training and start from scratch. Look at a 5x5 program, or Mark Rippetoes Starting Strength which I would highly recommend.
    In fact they have a spreadsheet with different routines, and you can track your progress each week. Well worth the time and effort, and don't forget that if you have other things going on in your life like a lot of stress that can be a factor in limiting your growth.
    You can definitely achieve your goals, look at taking a step back, and doing baby steps first.
    Hope this helps and I wish you the best!
