The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

The results of carb binging and getting back up

"Fall down 7 times, get up 8."

Yesterday I caved, I reached for the chocolate and peanut butter, I scarfed and I gorged and my taste buds thanked me for it; however my body is still kicking my butt for this one.

Mark has a great article on this over on his site, click here to read it. I can officially say I am feeling, or have already felt everything described by Mark. I feel absolutely terrible physically right now, and thanks to the crafty ways of carbs they are making me crave more of them; however, after experincing this first hand I have even more reason to avoid manufactured sugars, carbs, and the like.

The thing is, when you hit the wall like I did last night, you have a few options the way I see it A) You can quit and let the wall win B) You can rung along the wall until you find where it ends or C) You can look at the wall, laugh, and then barrell right through it like the primal beast you are. Now personally next time I hit a wall, be it in school, life, dieting, working out, etc. I intend to pick option C.


A little eye candy break with a motivational message.
This right here is the kind of woman I like: strong, independent, physically fit, confident, a fighter, and most importantly driven. Now be completely honest with yourself; would a woman (or man) like I described being willing to settle for anything less than someone operating near their own caliber? I want everyone reading this post to take away the message that stuff is going to happen, you are going to fall, you may look like you failed; but, you can't let that stop you, no matter what the world throws your way or how far you fall you need to be ready and willing to claw your way back and past where you started and never let things get you down and trick you into thinking you lost. 
"You only lose if you lose the lesson."

  1. As I've heard it say, you make mistakes - but you make them FAST. We all have our weak times. When we're truly dedicated to the cause, we self-police our inconsistencies, learn from them and work hard not to dwell or repeat the same offense.

    Lesson learned - move on.

    And keep posting pictures of Jessica Biel...
