Not really a slave, but sometimes it feels like I do not live a "normal" life. However, I know that I have to do it, I cannot stop lifting, I have to maintain my diet and supplemet regimine, I am dedicated, and if I quit I know I would be miserable.
I started this lifestyle when I was around 15 years old, it's just who I am. The first time I lifted a weight I knew it was something I had to do, and I never stopped.

slave to your body? Be it diet/nutrition, training day, cycle on/off, etc.
Ever feel consumed with the process?
Not really a slave, but sometimes I question whether or not I am obsessive about staying in shape. You know, lifting weights four times a week, cycling three times a week, spending $100 a month on supplements, and counting everything that I eat....just makes me wonder if it's over-the-top sometimes. People offer me junk food an I turn it down (cake/donuts at work for example). That makes me feel bummed sometimes, but then I realize two things: Those people are fat for a reason, and junk food makes me ill.
All this exercise and healthy eating gives me a lean body and makes me feel great about myself, so I'm sticking to it.
