Patsy (and of course others)
Since I respect you on this forum very highly and since you have always supported me, I need some advice (and this is related to a recent post).
Heres the situation. I have met the most wonderful girl in the world after being single for just over two years. During that time I found myself. I trained, researched and applied everything I could get my hands on to build the best physique I have ever had. It definitely helped me in attracting this girl. Now we are dating. I have a job. She comes from a family that owned a restaurant in New Mexico, and when they eat, they eat with all the toppings, the creams, the marinarias, the spices, the real cheeses, the real tortillias etc. etc. They eat real GOOD food the way it was intended. Now, we all know that GOOD food (i.e., real stuff) is not necessarily compatible with tip top physiques. I love this girl and I don’t want to disappoint her in any way. I know that foods i have avoided before I will have to eat once again, not becuase she is making me, but becuase I don’t want to be an idiot around her trying to calculate every last macro, saying i can’t have pizza on fridays or eat popcorn when we watch a movie. I know this will wreak at least some damage on my physique, but I know its also healthy. I rode on top of the mountain with training when i was single and in school. Now the tables are turned but in a good way. I would never give up training or proper nutrition, but the rules are going to bend, and bend strong. How do I rid myself of the dissonance, the fact that I will get soft a bit from tip top shape. Its all for the right reasons, I guess I just need some positive’s here ya know. Yeah she trains too, but not bb style…she is fit, but then again, she aint a bodybuilder…Its just hard to step off the mountain a bit.
