    Push50 - Taking Back My Life Life

    Ok I am finally back getting things straight in my head. I had my hip surgery last November and I have been dealing with bouts of depression and just feeling flat out worthless. And that my friends is BULLSHIT!!!Its like I am finally waking up from a bad dream. I don't know if it was the surgery? Anastasia? Recovery period? Lack of Gear? No TRT? Or what? Nevertheless, it is over. Time to get to work.I have started working out again, really working out, not just getting in the gym and convincing myself that what I did was a workout. So the plan currently is: 1. Dial in diet - Toughest part2. Minimum 1 hour cardio every day3. Workouts 5 days a week4. No Gear or TRTRevisit plan in 6-8 week to compare where I was, where I am at then, and decide where I am going. SimpleI will post my meals; workouts and photo updates here for any that have an interest in following.

    Side by side 3-4 weeks apart. I’ll try to get more consistent posing when taking pics. Gaining some but not losing the midsection very fast.
