You Know You're Serious When...

Im just sitting here eating tuna with a little bit of low sugar barbecue sauce and it just occurred to me…this tastes like shit, why am i eating this. Then i remembered, “oh yeah, tuna is amazing for body” So ill go ahead and start it off saying

-you know your serious about your body when…

  • you are eating tuna with fucking barbecue sauce.

I know some other people have some good ones, lets here em

when you are eating tuna without anything…just tuna.

Why purposefully make it painful to take a sh!t or sit or walk, oh yeah…because squats and deadlifts are good for your body.

Tuna and BBQ sauce, hmmmm

when you’re eating so much that you have to shit and eat at the same time.

yeah, that’s happened a few times lately when I’m pressed for time, gotta do what you gotta do

word

When you have 15 different types of seasoning just for chicken.

S

when you drink a 1/4 gallon milk and a power PWO

when you walk a mile and a half to your gym only to find it closed then walk another mile to another gym.

when you cant get milk PWO anymore so you just go to Wendy’s and get 3 Jr bacon cheeseburgers.

when you eat 5 dozen raw eggs in a daw, and a ton of food on top of that.

try tuna with a little bit of Mrs. Dash Lemon pepper seasoning. Delicious some olive oil helps as well.

When you set your alarm clock for anything other than work or school - like to eat, or train

When sweeping the floor or shovelling snow, you swap sides to ensure “equal development”

When you realise you know the nutrient information of everything that passes your lips. (no gay jokes please…;D)

You just nailed it on the head. I ACTUALLY do all three. It’s a sad, sad world.

Another, when you do isometric excercises to cure boredom instead of blanking off to porn.

When you cut a deal with your teachers/lecturers to eat whilst in class.

When you tell your friends you cant watch a movie because you have to train at the time they organized it.

When you really ‘know’ what your body responds to, and you can adjust a program accordingly.

When you are running low on money you bulk-buy flavorless, unsweetened pure whey, from a liquidated store, just so you have the whey.

When you bring protein based snacks into movie theaters, or anywhere you may not be able to eat for 2 hours.

S

Agree with all of the above.

-Going to other people’s houses and knowing that I could eat everything in their entire house, including the canned goods, in a matter of two hours.

-Making my butcher laugh when I order my weekly 15 pounds of meat, plus a few sausages, thanks.

-Crying on the floor when you’re going through carb withdrawl. Forget all the heavy lifting, all the tortured cardio sessions, the real battle is won and lost in the kitchen.

Maybe that’s just me.

-Sab

You wake up in the middle of the night to eat so your body doesn’t go 7 hours without protein.

Your coworkers have stopped inviting you out to happy hour b/c every night is ‘a gym night.’

You’re not an alcoholic, but you had to give up beer.

The staff at the gym no longer ask to see your membership card b/c you spend more time there than they do.

… when you put tuna and a cup of water in a blender and then drink it.

When you LIKE eating plain tuna.

You literally read Bodybuilding magazines cover to cover.

Donkey calf raises don’t embarrass you anymore.

You boil eggs 3 dozen at a time.

When you hear six-pack, you think of abs instead of beer.

You think of cardio, not scissors, when you hear the word cutting.

You know the difference between oatmeal, rolled oats, and steel oats.

People give you weird looks when you get up three times in one class to take a leak.

When you start getting paranoid that toothpaste might have sugar and thus only brush your teeth post workout.

ROFL

When you bang your head on the wall with purpose because you forgot your postworkout shake home.

When you bring a shake and a lunch to your GF’s home for supper because you know her mom is cooking ribs with french fries.

When you mimic curls and overhead presses in your car as you are caught in the traffic, just to stretch a bit. (I do that allll the time)

When you meet family or friends and the only things you want to talk about are your newest workouts and diet.

When all you drink at partys (or even your own b-day for that matter) is protein shakes or water

When the novelty wears off and you don’t mention to people that you “went to the gym today” anymore, they just expect that you did, and you know that.

When people stop asking just in case you tell them and they either a) Feel guilty for not looking after themselves to the same extent
Or b) Simply do not want to listen to you talk about something they really have zero interest in!

When you walk into a local pharmacy and the assistant asks if you train everyday…! (hopefully not when you ask for slin or pins!)

When you decide to spend a few quid on a spurge of food and walk out with everything low-fat except peanut Butter.

All mine so far have been true! lol

When working out your budegt, you put proteins and other supplements on par with utility bills and insurance.
