Bodybuilding Physique Update 7: Seeing Some Gains.

This past month has been a great month for me in terms of fitness.  I am starting to feel more like I am re-connecting with the reasons I started in the first place.  My motivation to workout has grown and it is almost feeling effortless.

For a while I noticed myself before getting in a pattern of trying to get through the workout.  And although I was making progress in terms of increasing the weight I lifted, it wasn't feeling as fun as it used to.  It almost felt like more of a chore, where as the past couple of weeks it felt like a hobby again.

I really got into this whole fitness thing to create the best life for myself as a whole, to feel good on the inside and outside (plus who doesn't like to see their body transform?).

My current measurements 

Arms: 12.25 in

Legs: 19 in
Calves: 14 in
Waist: 29.5 in
Chest: 35.5 in

bodybuilding physique update 7

I did have a small increase in my arm as well as chest size over the past month, however there was no change to my legs or waist.

In terms of how much I eat I will start to intake 2,700 calories per day and see where that takes me over the next month.  The reason I wasn't doing this in the past was because I was scared of gaining fat.  If you have read the previous physique updates you know this is all a test to see what is working best for me at the current moment in time, so I would like to see how eating 2,700 calories on a daily basis affects fat gain.

Where I want to be within the next month.

Over the next month I would love to bring all of these numbers up a quarter to half an inch, while keeping my waist the same size if possible.

Closing thoughts.

I am glad to re-connect with the reasons I started working out in the first place.  I am hoping to use the motivation I have to fuel my drive (even more) to achieve my weight goal of 165 pounds of lean muscle with 8-10% bodyfat by 2024.
