Most Interesting Diet Plan- Carb Back Loading

Sign That The Apocalypse Is Upon Us- more stars from reality shows who have no right being stars

Best "Cheat" Food- Mcmillan's Bakery vanilla cream filled doughnuts, Haddon Ave. New Jersey. Even though I have to deal with the crazy lady who tells me that the hurricane was a sign from God because all of the "cheatin', and bad stuff going on in the world".. Just gimme my doughnuts..

Most Irritating Habit- Clerks at stores who LICK THEIR FINGERS when they open a bag or make change for you.   An actual exchange at Barnes and Noble in Deptford, NJ "Really, DID YOU JUST LICK YOUR FINGERS? " "Why do I want your spit on me?????" "No, I don't want the bag now, just gimme the book! "

Best Book- The Devil All the Time

Best Author- Donald Ray Pollock

Best Concert Attended- Down, Warbeast, haarp

Best Trend- People getting back to real free weight training

Worst Trend That Continues- Any celebration at anytime, including thanking god for a touchdown but not when you get sacked or throw an interception(doesn't he still care?), acting like a FOOL when you score a goal or make a tackle.

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.
