    Hi guys…..

    I hope you well? As in the title…yes I have had a pretty awful few weeks (that being said I have been eating well and I have been training…..BUT) long story short here:
    I was bulking for 10months or so, 11 months of that I did the Terrance program, then I took the 4 weeks recovery program to recover, (I went from 61kg to 74kg) I had a mini break from pushing food, and training volume etc etc, then I started the P.P.L 2.0 program, a few weeks in to it then my mum past away so sudden after she didn’t recover from her surgery.
    The last few weeks as I said I’ve been training just to get me through the hard times and I’ve been eating pretty well, had a few chest meals as you do, BUT my weight has gone from 74kg, to now 67kg (stress related) and probably to many steps on most days as I do love a good walk to clear my head. (Well over 10k a day) but yeah I have lost a lot of strength, size, etc but I am having at least 3000 Cals a day and macros are being reach but I’m still not gaining in both strength or weight. Either my head is not in it, or the food is still low I don’t know. But Is this the best time to start over again a new program? I wanna focus more so on my upper body, and delts, so would you advise me start the delt program and if so do I start a slight bulk again or what? Any help would be appreciate. Thank you guys.

    Thank you Bryce really appreciate it. I must admit the passion/heart is not in at as much as it was, especially 5-6 weeks
    ago because mum passed away. I just can’t believe how my perception has changed, now I’m a cancer survivor as well and I thought that would of changed my perceptions but not as it has much as losing my mum. But I’ve always been into my fitness and health, I was sharing it on social media (my journey) but I’ve come away from that now as well, my progress was good, my passion will always be my health and fitness, but the heart has totally gone and the thought at the moment in following a 6 day split just doesn’t enlighten or motivate me what so ever, (I’m back at work next week as well) that’s why I thought about a specialisation program for my goals, but again it’s how do I get that enjoyment back (although I’m still going gym but it’s feel just like a choir atm) as I said I’ve dropped weight, I still eat meals but again I’m not 100% with that yet as well, I’m just aiming to get macros in and that’s it. (Food hasn’t much changed but quantities are mixed up and timings) I’ve never felt so out of love than I have now and I know emotions and stress is at another level I get that but it’s managed as much as I can and I do get that time to think (to clear my head) etc and time with the kids to get away and I have come away from social media now, I just want that mojo back if that makes sense. I’m just trying to be as positive as I can and I am putting the effort in to tick all the boxes although times are hard, but I’m not doing it with a smile on my face, again it’s just a habit, a choir, feel like a robot. I just hope this makes sense. Tom

    Havnt listened to Joes or Bryce’s response yet but just wanted to say heart goes out to you Tom. It’s understandable your heart isn’t in it at this exact moment as your heart has been shattered by something quite traumatic. Just wanted to say keep going man. You are obviously aware of some really great positive steps like reducing your time on social media and spending time with the kids. Gym will always be there to focus on when your ready. Your head matters as much as your heart. Also your kicking ass especially as a cancer survivor. I’m a stroke survivor (in my 30s 🥲) keep going man. Your Mojo will come back in time as you heal. Your stronger then you think
