    Mike, time to move on, time to be strong.
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Haha man I am listening to that song.

    ... Don't stop now straight to the top now,
    Someone who truly understands, how to treat a man,
    This is what I need...
    Girl you made me believe again,
    If you happy then be with him, go 'head mommy breathe again
    Go 'head mommy breathe again, don't stop now straight to the top now
    Pretty phat song for P. Diddy if you ask me. Like it a lot.

    These are some phat lyrics I dont know if you like them or not.

    You could die from love, at any given time I could die from slugs,
    But that's what this life is capable of,
    The death and the life of a bitch and a thug, is what I'm scared of,
    But God up in Heaven who ain't afraid to, tuck the toast in the Escalade,
    Pop on n!ggas that showin me shade, but only for the Rule 'cause that's my baby,
    Got me a down ass bitch with red hair, that don't care
    Blazed by the shots and flares,
    Girl c'mon, follow me, and bust back at police, conceal ya heat,
    It's a bit much to blaze up, Rule and Chuck, N-I-G, the Murderous, I-N-C,
    With one on the hip, one in the holster, n!gga will toast ya quick
    Especially a down ass bitch

    Hell yeah man. I think I like all of the Ja Rule songs. I guess its just his voice or something because every now and then his lyrics will suck and Ill still like the song.

    Hehe thats pretty much what I need to be honest. Cheated like a damn a*shole dont know what the f*ck I was thinking. Sometimes I just cant figure out what the hell is really going through my head to be honest. I mean seriously its summer time, and I cheated on my diet like a fat slob.

    This kind of bullsh!t cannot be happening again. It really really cant. I am refeeding every other day!! How can I be cheating too..?

    Hey MonStar
    I've never posted to your journal, but I've followed it for a while and really heed the comments that you, B&I, MarshallPenn, PowerManDL, and others say, so don't take these comments as negative criticism. There's nothing but support coming from this end
    I've followed many of your days (though not every day through EVERY one of your journals) and was wondering about your diet. In one of your journals someone made the comment about all the supps you take. It seems that on your isocaloric days, you eat hardly any "real" food. At ~2100 calories on those iso days, you should still be able to eat a piece of lean steak, chicken, fatty fish, or something for one meal and stay within bounds.
    Don't get down on yourself. When you feel guilty about cheating, use that energy to positively re-dedicate yourself and you won't fail!
    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks a lot for the post faus really appreciate the support man, seriously. I encourage you to post in my journal with comments / suggestions etc. Again your support is definitely appreciated. I see that its your 2nd post here at WBB, welcome aboard.

    Thanks a lot for following my journal faus its seriously very very appreciated. Yeah I do take a good number of supplements. Some vitamins and minerals and ALA and creatine, glutamine, etc. On isocaloric days I dont eat too much real food which maybe isnt the best way to go. I eat a MRP first thing in the morning, then some skim milk with wheat bread and peanut butter. Etc.

    Yeah I guess I should try to include some more real food. Thank you very much for the suggestion.

    Don't get down on yourself. When you feel guilty about cheating, use that energy to positively re-dedicate yourself and you won't fail! Keep up the good work.
    Yeah I know I have to stop cheating on my diet, to stop getting down on myself. Yeah I know youre right man I end up red-dedicating myself to dieting etc. I get so down on myself thinking "what the F*CK were you thinking you fat piece of sh!t?" Then I just feel horrible and it takes a lot to get me back into it.

    I said something about that once before. Your diet is causing your cravings, nothing else. You deprive your body of any decent amount of real food and then you binge and it's fu*king with your system. If you get on a consistent diet and monitor it closely, you won't need to binge and your cravings will die down considerably. Instead of having binge days ("refeed" as many call it), get on a steady diet of 2500-3000 cals per day, split up between 5 or 6 meals (at 500-600 cals per meal), get some real solid food in you and I'll bet that you'll feel better about your diet and yourself.

    If you stick with your current diet, you only need one thing .... WILL POWER!!! You keep feeling fat and thinking you're a fat piece of $hit, that should tell you something ... it's time to change something. Don't rely on supps. to do what you can do with a steady diet. Get it together man, you have some serious strength potential, don't let your lack of will power hold you down.

    Yeah I am going to try and bring into play some more real food. Like chicken and turkey and everything like that. It makes sense why I binge a little bit. But honestly with me refeeding every other day there is no excuse for a binge. I mean honestly its a lot of fun and I enjoy eating on my refeed days. Thats the bottom line.

    There is no excuse for me binging when I am refeeding so f*cking often. Thats just a lack of willpower and just a disgusting thought to be honest. I am not going to let my will power like you said just f*ck up everything else. It messes up my workouts, and it f*cks with my head too much.

    If you stick with your current diet, you only need one thing .... WILL POWER!!! You keep feeling fat and thinking you're a fat piece of $hit, that should tell you something ... it's time to change something. Don't rely on supps. to do what you can do with a steady diet.

    tuttut
    I know that this diet takes some will power youre right. But I feel liky my strength really soars with it once I am on track with this diet. Fat gradually drops off and I feel like my strength just goes up and up and up in the gym. I mean honestly that is what's important if you ask me.

    Just need to get my sh!t together and stop being a little f*cking baby who cant stick to a motherf*cking diet. I need to get serious and stop making excuses and stop f*cking d!cking around.
