    Does the pursuit of a great body control your life?






    I am posting on the forums at 10:40 on a Saturday night.....how lame. I just watched my buddies walk out the door on their way downtown. This marks the second Saturday in a row that I chose to stay home and get a good night's sleep over going out and partying, just so that I could get a better workout in the morning and avoid the beer carbs. If I go out, I am going to spend $100.00 or more at the bar, and have a great time, but lately my need to be stronger and look better has driven me to skipping out on the things I use to love. Never has it occurred to me, until now, that maybe I am taking this too far. In under 5 months I dropped from a 42" waist to a 36" waist, and doubled my strength and muscle tone. I use to eat complete garbage, but now I carefully organize my meals on calorie intake and P/C/F%. The taste of food is no longer a consideration when its time to eat. Most of the people that new me a year ago have a bugeyed look on their face when they see me, because of how much better I look. This drives me harder and harder to the point that my life revolves around the gym. Am I taking this too far, or am I finally realizing what it takes to be what I want to be? I guess those that sacrifice reap the rewards later, and my turn will be soon. If keep pushing myself this hard I can see in maybe a year of how great I will look, and all this will be worth it.

    Sorry about the rant. Do you guys ever feel the same way? What sacrifices do you make in the pursuit of a great body?

    At 15-20 yes
    But after that it became a positive influence but no longer was #1 in my life......dropped down to #4 or #5 on my list.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    I just got back from the gym @ 9:30 at night and I'm hear to buddy. BTW Good job on the transformation. And it's also only about a tie between paying the bills, school work, and trying to listen to my wife...uhmm did I say that with my outside voice?

    Oh yeah, I am a fulltime college student finishing my senior year while working a 30 hour a week job. "Me time" is a thing of the past. Speaking of school work, wtf am I doing on the forums right now, I have database homework to be doing. Later fellows.

    Yeah, I feel the same way. But I wouldn't change it for anything, in fact it is a love/hate relationship that I have. I hate the fact that I have to eat constantly and sleep all the time, not do this or that. The only thing I really sacrifice is my spending money. However, in the end I love seeing the progress in the gym. Work hard = accomplish a goal. Nothing wrong with that.

    Alchohol sucks. Its the worst drug out there. That doesnt mean you cant go out, have a few lemon waters, and talk to the woman. Woman love non-drinking guys. Still, in general, your on the right track. Chosing between building a great body and ruining one is really no choice at all.

    I'd stay home, smoke some shit, get your rest, and knock hell out of the iron the next day......................Rich
