Patience Grasshopper

Who knew squatting 65# could make you so sore… What the fuck man?

Also, I totally fucked up my ‘no dairy day’ within the first 300 calories I ate. Oops I creamed my coffee. Whatever, that was a dumb challenge anyway ::humph:: Seriously, it was fucking dumb. I was just reacting to not having lost any weight in a few days and I really need to not do that shit. 

I shouldn’t be so hard on myself for dumb shit like that and I should stop making up crazy rules every time I get frustrated. If there’s one thing I need to work on, it’s not giving up dairy, or finding more self control, or lifting more intensely…. it’s patience. I need patience. Sometimes I need to remind myself that losing 20 pounds isn’t going to happen in 3 weeks. And neither is becoming an elite powerlifter. It’s gonna take time, patience, and persistance. I’m doing everything I can, I just need to keep doing it. #deepshit

  1. Bro. Those #deepthoughts are right in the feels. I keep beating myself for not being able to stick to all of my stupid rules, and then I lose weight eating food that doesn’t fall inside those rules because I’m way less stressed. Food is a head trip.
