    Where are you the least consistent?

    For me, I have never been even remotely close to consistent in the sleeping department. For the last six years, I have not slept more than 6 hours a night for an entire week. My average is between 2 and 4 hours during the workweek, and anywhere from 3 to 11 hours on weekends. It is horrible, but I have not been able to fix it.

    So what about you?

    Sleeping. Sometimes when work, bill paying, grocery shopping, fixing the car and lifting are there I might get four hours a night.

    Eating. Mainly because I dont feel the direct benefits like I do from lifting or sleeping and its way to easy to just put off.

    Nutrition...

    If I actually kept my diet the way it should be, I'd look much different then I do today. Sleeping is a close second.

    Eating is definitely my weakness, I always start off strong but then find myself eating things I shouldn't be.

    Lately I've been getting 8-9 hours of sleep, never miss a gym session and diet has been spot on. I guess call me a dedicated mofo.

    I go in streaks. When I'm consistent, everything is in order. If one goes out of whack, they all follow shortly after.

    ^ exactly the same as me... however my sleeping is never that great. But when my diet faulters, my training does too, and vice versa.

    Diet is always a pain in the butt. As I think it is for most people. I don't have any problem dieting at all. Its just hard to do it for a couple months when food is so tied into or culture. Plus, I'm a fat ass at heart so occasionally I slip up.

    Sleep is easy IMO. Just get enough. I love training so thats easy too.

    Eating. I can do it consistently for short periods of time, but I get so sick of it I end up quitting. Training is fine, I like that part. Right now money is a significant factor in terms of my diet. I wouldn't have to eat so many god dammed peanuts if I could buy a big assed steak.
    Sleep is consistent, but not great (~7 hours a night, more on weekends).

    I have cheat days where I cut my average daily calories in half and just relax. I love not stressing about trying to eat all day.

    Eating. Start off slow and nearing the end of the night I could eat anything and never get full especially after I train. I love training and sleeping so those are never a problem for me.

    I always make sure I get 8hours of sleep and a big meal before I sleep, lots of protein and a little carbs.

    But I am a bit crappy at eating when I am doing something, like hanging out with my friends.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    getting enough sleep is never a problem


    sometimes my training can be off (like now for example, I'm trying to make myself go to the gym) and other times I eat things I know I shouldn't...so it's a combination

    Eating. As I get older I find I can't tolerate more things and I can't eat at all two hours before bedtime or only a very small amount.

    I'm pretty consistant with my sleep (going to and getting up from bed) but I don't get a lot of it because of my upstairs neighbors, although they have been a lot more quiet recently...I guess learning how to cuss in Korean is finally paying off.:evillaugh

    Eating. I'd eat alot more if i had the cash! Also, if and when i start working, i don't think i'd be able to fit in the meals i'd like with about two breaks throughout the day.

    sleeping, for sure. I'm an idiot that can't fall asleep unless I'm satisfied with my day.

    I have no problem whatsoever bulking, but it's a mental struggle to cut. That comes a close second.
