And, that's the reason to just pick a plan (training routine) or go back to one that you already did and get into the gym...just lift.

For bulking, or adding lean mass, eat a little extra, if not enough to see some gain (on the scales or visually) add a little more a couple of weeks later; if wanting to lose weight, deduct a little food. Mostly, if people are on a semi-healthy diet already, then adding a bit more will generally mean that a person may add accross the board by eating a little extra of all food groups, so it works quite well. At a later stage, you can always reassess, even if that's only 3 months away, and smaller tweaks along the way always seem to work a lot better than major overhauls, at least for most people anyway.

But, the important thing is to not lose the enjoyment of lifting and wanting to lift, that's the one thing that destroys all good plans.
