The very first day back at the gym, my coach and I make a plan for the next 4-6 months.


We decide what my caloric intake will look like, in what specific ratio of fats to protein to carbohydrates.


And what my lifting schedule will focus on specifically from week to week.


The target is 200lbs at no more than 18% body fat.


I’m excited to continue growing.


But more than that, I’m excited to see if I can bulk up on more patience, love and joy, which is what I’m learning to be fundamental to all growing pains.
