Let us talk a little about support.
I’m not talking about wrist or back support, but the support from family and friends.
Luckily, I have great support from my family, beautiful wife, and lots of my friends. This year, I had to figure out how to tell people, that I would be more than glad to come visit them, but when it came to dinner, I would bring my own food so I could stay on track, and not compromise my project. Most of them accepted it!
But the support is needed, because this is not easy! This will be a long walk, walking on burning coals, through emotional experiences, and times I would like to quit the gym, and eat some unhealthy food. And I can’t imagine how tough it is for people, who goes into this without any support at all, or maybe even with families and friends who tease them and tries make them quit. I have extremely respect for them!
I do have friends who doesn’t understand me, and can’t figure out why I am doing this.
But I am okay with that, because they still accepting that I’m doing this. We can’t all agree on the same things, and see the beautiful and fascinating in the same stuff.
But if anybody tries to make me quit, shakes their head when they talk to me, makes fun of it, or won’t see me no more…. They will get cut out of my life… support is not just and only about liking what other people do, it can also just be accepting what I am doing.
But haters are needed as well, they are gasoline on my fire and wood on the already burning flames, and they will only make me want to work even harder to reach my goals.
My package arrived!
Supplements! Now. I have a little fun story here. I was out shopping with some guy from work, and then we came by the supplements. And then he asked “which protein product should I buy to get big?”… I really tried to tell him many times, that it ain’t just the powder that makes you big. Getting big comes from hard work at the gym, CORRECT nutrition and a good rest! This is only a supplement to the diet, to get the right amount of carbs, protein and fat etc.
But he kept asking the same question!.... then one of the guys just pointed at a random product and said “that one” to shut him up…. Well guess what, he didn’t get big at all….
I drink a lot of protein throughout the day, but I also eat a lot of food, and I work hard at the gym.
I know I buy a lot every time.. but I just hate to run out of protein, only to find out that the product is out of stock, and then I have to buy some other product, that I might not know.
Oh yes, and bodylab even included a free sample of protein (200g). that’s nice!
But again! The protein powder itself doesn’t do the job…. YOU DO THE JOB!
Now if anybody feels like asking a question about supplements, don’t ask me, I ain’t a specialist or nutrition expert, I just follow the plan my coach made for me to reach my goals!
