eating is a problem. no matter how much protein i take in, i'm still a skinny bastard.

lifting is consistent. haven't missed a workout this year.

sleep is good, considering it's summer, and will continue to be good now that i'll be starting school from 2nd period in the fall.

I just feel when I am excelling in one or two areas, one is always lacking, so I choose all three cylinders. I can't ever seem to get all three in good balance. So I usually settle for two. Right now, I'm only good at one. Sleep. LOL. Probably the worst one to be "on par with" Yea I've become lazy lately :lol:. And I've been eating crappy. And no consistency with lifting. I'm on the route to becoming a typical American!

Eating - I can't snack at work every 2 hours like all the gurus want you to, cause I'd have to leave and go brush my teeth constantly or they'd all rot.

I actually kind of figured that eating was gonna come out as the biggest weak spot for most people.
This whole "confessions" thread has gotten me back on track though.

That's what I was hoping for.

Plus I was feeling guilty for eating poop... :wink:

Had to confess somewhere, my wife just looks at me funny.

This thread was remarkably well-timed, because I was just thinking about my diet when you started it.

Like I said in a couple places, I've gotten myself fairly lean and strong the way I eat now...but I have to make a change to get further. This just provided some more impetus to do so.

Eating.
Actually I think my eating is pretty fine right now but it's the hardest part to control. My laziness always keeps me out from preparing a good meal. And the only tool I can use efficiently in the k-word is the microwave. Ordering some food is much more easier.

Yeah have to say eating here too, i'm not too bad at dinner - couple of days a week its indian take aways or pizza but mostly its home cooked. Lunch and tea i find difficult to get ideas (I dont eat fish or eggs, which really limits me).

Forget drinking as an option, weekends should have been one. Booze and serious lack of sleep all weekend cannot be good for my recovery.

I find pre-cooked ham steaks to be rather convenient for lunch.
