I got Henry Rollins' book the other day," Occupants" ... and damn, its tough to take. He took his camera with him all over the world and took pictures of some amazing stuff. One pic that stick out is the family in India digging through the garbage dump for food. Its what they do ALL day to eat. And then the guy in Thailand, I think , who has like one arm and no legs and pulls himself on the sidewalk with a dog bowl in front of him so people can put food or money in it. And then Henry puts in a story next to it. Just alot of pics of kids crying, living in garbage, crying out in hunger, dead bodies that are fully clothed lying in the street, murdered maybe or just dead from natural causes, but still dead and ...rough.

And then people tell me that they can't lose weight. That they get too hungry and just can't take the feeling of hunger. That they can't go to bed hungry or they cant go 2 hours without having something to eat..... It's okay, I understand, just dont worry about it. Eat as much as you want and do what you want, the dieting thing just ain't for you. You have a choice about it and you can still eat great food and you just can't muster up the WILL to do it. Really, I understand.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
