View Full Version : need a bit of reassurance

12-02-2003, 02:29 PM
The last couple of weekends I have been a bit naughty by drinking too much alcohol and taking some drugs (not bodybuilding related). Not only this but the day after my eating all goes to pot as I have to force stuff down me. I am alright during the week. Today though I have noticed my fat has gone up a bit and I am determined to cut this out now! My strength has somehow still been rising so hopefully I can stop without too much loss.

I just need to know I am not the only one who goes through bad periods coz I was maybe thinking I am not disciplined enough for bodybuilding.

My only worry is christmas is coming up and new year and i've got to limit myself as much as possible and have no drugs at all! easier said than done when I am surrounded by them.

do what you can, that is all anyone can do. don't try to deny yourself all the time or you will binge or other destructive behavior. just one day at a time.

Bodybuilding is all about putting forth your best effort. We all will falter now and then, but you have to be disciplined enough to suck it up and get to work.

I got sick recently and my lifting and appetite went to crap...specifically 2 weeks of hanging out and getting sh!tfaced with friends and not eating the best of foods.

It's not a matter of how many times you fall off track , it's how many times you get back on.
