There’s No End to the Sacrifices You’ll Make…

This is What I Wish Someone Would Do to Me Many of My Days

I’m just now finishing up a Nutrition course I’ve taken through WodPrep.com

It was really good information.

However, what I was looking for I didn’t find.

And I did realize through this course that I’ll never find it.

I was looking for a nutrition/meal plan for life.  Something I could follow every day without thinking about it that would give me the body I want and allow my body to keep doing what I’ve asked it to do.

This does not exist.

Why?

Because the human body is always changing.  Outside factors such as exercise and the intensity causes your needs to change.  Hormones will play a huge factor.  As will your individual metabolism.

It’s depressing.

To me at least.

I’m the person who plans out everything as much as possible without factoring in the curveballs life throws you continuously.

With all the sacrifices I make on a daily basis (my recent blog post HERE on this), I was hoping not to have to make this sacrifice:  the nutrition one.  The one where everything has to be controlled and if you deviate too much, you set yourself back days.  The guilt you have over the cheesecake drenched in hot fudge sauce (what I had yesterday).  Every day starting over and hoping you can avoid your temptations.  Battling the fatigue from this fight every day.

However, all this makes sense.  I was 33 when I realized I couldn’t eat anything I wanted  anymore.  And now I’m realizing I have to constantly adjust as well.

Sigh….

The first step in progress is recognizing the issue.  This does take a huge burden off of my shoulders as I’ve been struggling with nutrition for a while now.

I know I’ll get it.

But the fight continues…

  1. There are things like diligent hydration, which can be a nuisance in certain circumstances and portion control- with small amounts of a favourite “guilty pleasure”, instead of the whole nine yards, that can chase cravings away, without being a slave to the Food Police. Being probably 1 1/2-2 times your age, I can empathize wholeheartedly with the metabolism dilemma.
