I know today and tomorrow may be tough since I'm working/helping out with Remembrance Day ceremonies tomorrow (I'm also currently posting this from work). I guess Monday is a good starting point.
What's funny is that I've always had an issue with eating and gaining weight. I'm at a "healthy" weight according to BMI, but my body shape is rather thin. Like I said on the other thread, struggling with a lot of things that involve lifting is kind of embarassing but it can also affect patient care.
muggi's advice to me should be the same: https://forum.tip.it...75#entry5602758
In any case I've been going since ... 26 september? So a month later I went to 90 lb squat, 110 lb deadlift, and 60 lb bench press from ~40 lb, ~70 lb, and just barbell (so 20 lb). Next time I go (Monday) I'm going to try and go up 10 lbs since it felt easy today. I can easily move the barbell with one hand, now, too.
I go 3x a week. Not always M/T/F, but always 3x a week unless it's like impossible or would interfere with more important things. (For example, last week, I went on a hook-up Friday evening + had work during the day; and Monday I had a 17 hour work/school day). I still managed 2x in that week.
For context, I work two jobs, do freelance work, am making my own game, am going to school full time, and have a social life.
