Just so everyone knows, and I know this will be hard to believe, the picture that heads this post is NOT of me. I repeat, NOT me. Okay, now that that's cleared up, I can say that I have been lacking in energy and motivation for some time now. It is a bit too strict of a life style to live verbatim from the Muscle and Fitness Magazines. I can't afford all the supplements they suggest, nor eat the way they want one to eat either. And since I found out that my Phenotype is an Ectomorph, that's a person who is naturally skinny and has a hard time gaining weight, that makes things just a bit more difficult for me to gain muscle mass, and therefore, attain my goals within the allotted time that I had initially specified.
But I have not given up! I do lift weights about twice a week now, even though I should be lifting up to four times per week by now. I think that I will have to reevaluate my goals and set more realistic ones for my body type. The only thing that has been happening is I have gained little muscle mass, but mostly, I have toned up and added definition, not mass.
I read so many articles on bodybuilding and start to find that my head is swimming from all the information. It is such a "checks and balances" game that it is very demanding and tiresome to make sure that I do everything correctly. I have to come up with a plan, perhaps this weekend, to counteract this hurdle. I guess that I will gain whatever I gain from whatever I do. I don't know if that makes sense. I just mean that I'm no longer going to obsess about how much I'm gaining and how fast. It would be awesome to gain muscle super fast, but the 12 week training plans and diets are just too much for me to adhere to for that long of time. I eventually will be bigger, however not for some time to come. I know that some of those bodybuilders took five years to get as big as they are, however I do not want to be that big. Perhaps half that time.
Just thinking out loud.

build muscle mass fast

Great blog. I really liked it. I have also created a lens in same niche. This is my first time, hope u guys like it. Here’s a brief intro I hope that my site helps to guide you in the correct direction so that you will avoid many of the mistakes I've made in my long journey to gain weight. Even the "newbies" know that bodybuilding magazines are created to sell supplements, plain and simple.
The guys with the 6 steps to Massive _____ are affiliated with the magazine sponsor's advertisers. They gear their programs to succeed with only the supplements sold in between the magazine covers. Then comes Anthony Ellis and his Gaining Mass program... for more detail visit herehttp://www.squidoo.com/anthony-ellis/
