Yeah, I can gain and lose super easy..maybe due to my size? IDK. I mean I lost 100lbs in 4 months. But I hated being skinny and weak..screw that.

So I volunteer everyday at a very large food bank in my city that feeds the homeless and families that are hurting. After my year of being homeless, its important to me to give back. However, I still struggle for food every month, and the guys here know that. Ive been volunteering for quite some time and the employees know Im in to working out etc. Today, to my surprise, they gave me an entire case of frozen chicken breasts. God works in weird ways sometimes. You do the right things, and the right things happen to you. I tell you guys what, Ive found more fulfillment in my life giving for others than I ever have when I was my main priority.

262 this AM. Training arms and legs. Looking leanish..abs clearly visible. Muscle size and strength still sucks though. Progress has been very very slow. It may be due to the fact that may day consists of a great deal of walking. To and from volunteering and to and from the gym is about 5 miles daily. Im going to start carrying a meal or two with me. Ill eat one at the Food Bank and another at the gym plus 4 more at home plus a bedtime snack of 6 to 8 eggs.

Hey! Actually felt good in the gym today. Was able to hit it pretty damn hard for about two hours. Noticeable strength increases. Could feel the size coming back in my chest and back..felt thick and full of blood. Swim is making his way upstream...even had a little vascularity..lol. Baby steps. Baby steps. God this sucks

This morning I did flat bench. Incline bench. Cables. I didnt count sets. But I was there for 90 mins and did sets until I couldnt raise my arms over my head. Almost every set to failure. IDK..maybe 60 sets total. Before the haters come, Ive always trained like this..and I progressed to repping 500 on flat bench raw. So it works pretty well for me. Weight is holding at 275. I want to stay here, but it will be hard with the heavy weights and the mass that comes with it. I will TRY to come down on calories and carbs. Cardio is still at 3 to 4 miles a day. I am definitely filling out. Very noticeably bigger.

Random rant. I meet and talk to a lot of people that have kids. Every last one of these people has a child, or children, that is the smartest kid in their class, the best athlete on their team, the most creative, the most compassionate, the most superior at whatever they are doing by such an enormous measure than all of the other children their age, and most that are much older, that it is simply unfathomable. My point is, if this was even half true, there would be no war, no poverty, no hunger, no racism, no social strife of any kind. Just once, one time, I want to meet a parent who is honest. Who says.." Yeah, my kid is just kind of sub par, he's not to bright, sucks at sports, pretty lazy, and in all likelihood will probably be living in my basement until he's 40".

Weight is holding at 275. Strength is up on all lifts. Not really going to worry too much about adding too much more weight. Going to up cardio lower cals and carbs and just going to go by how I feel.

Hopefully I can start putting on some more of the size I lost with all the running. Im thinking using those containers...and others..Im going to meal prep for 2 or 3 days in advance and eat 6 to 8 meals a day. Chicken, rice, beef, pasta, veggies, eggs, cheese. Going to start this training split as well. Two days on, 1 day off, 3 days on, 1 day off.
