Instead of worrying, find a way of training and a way of eating that seems to work for you. Don't feel like you have to do [insert exercise] just because it is recommended for most people. Train in a way that makes you feel like a badass. Go into the gym with the idea that you are ON A FUCKING MISSION. Same thing with the grocery store. Don't EVER assume u are like most people. You are you. Embrace it.
As for the 'on a mission' mentality... shit - get a shirt made (that reads "On A Mission") and wear it when you go to the grocery store just to remind you...
That was just a thought, but it gets back to my point above, that you are you. Embrace the shit out of it. Embrace what you want to become, and live toward that. You become what you think about. Especially if you have a network of awesome dudes (and chicks) to give you awesome advice. Only time separates the two men that are the now you and the future you.
