Leanness and Krispy Kreme's

Wouldn't it be nice to just eat what you wanted every day and still get and stay lean?  Breakfast of Krispy Kreme's and biscuits and gravy? Don't mind if I do. Ice cream and Krispy Kreme's for lunch? Delicious.Finish the day off with a cheesesteak and Krispy Kreme's? Sounds grand.

But you can't do that stuff. You'd get all fat and you couldn't move like you wanted to move and you would hate yourself. 

So what to eat to get lean? Bunch of boring stuff. You can say that you like fat sooo much, but it ain't better than ice cream. Don't you dare say that. I just ate a large soft serve twist cone with rainbow jimmies all over it, and it beats any piece of salmon that I ever had. You take that, I take the ice cream. And cake! forgot about that yellow sheet cake with vanilla icing and a cold glass of milk...

Anyway, what to do to stay lean? Be hungry. See, that is the dirty secret in the dieting world. Eat all you want of this! Eat fat free Snackwells until the cows come home! Bullshit. You gotta feel your freakin' ribs touching to really get lean. I'm not talking about you freaks who are all vascular and lift their shirts up and have abs all the time. That is few and far between and most of the time, they are just too damn skinny. (Used to tear me up in college when the pretty girls liked those skinny guys. "BUT HE'S RIPPED!" Yeah, but he is 147 pounds. Give me strength. I remember the day that this girl Penny told me that about this splindly dude. Yeah, so I was bearded and 265 and wore 3xl v neck white t shirts and was brutally honest, but hey, I was decently strong. There was a bunch of girls at my college that called me "Bulldog from Hell," I shit you not. Yeah, I wasn't too good socially). Yes, you gotta stay hungry to get lean, no matter what anyone tells you.

You have to sacrifice and do what others won't or can't do.

If the choice is to eat bad or don't eat, then don't eat. You go out with your boys and everyone is slamming beers and nachos grande? Have your steak and water and think about how this really blows but it will all be worth it. And what losers your friends are right now. Not that they are losers, but talk yourself up and talk them down. Works to fire you up. I swear, during one dieting episode, I drove by Burger King and went on a tirade about what losers are in the restaurant and how they are all fat and they don't lift and they never played football. I can't remember who was in the car, but they got an earful.

So, the secret to getting lean is to lift weights, eat just enough to survive and to know this- when you feel like total crap, you are on your way to getting lean.

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.
