Obviously I take my diet very seriously, I look at my body like a sports car. If I put in bad food or "gas" in to this vehicle it wont run like it should. If I put in the best food and drink a lot of water my "car" should run perfectly. For years I was on a very very strict diet that saw no "bad" food enter my system, I weighed around 156lbs but was miserable when it came to my diet. I wouldn't have a brownie or any kind of dessert, I looked at beer like it was a beaker full of acid (got to the 45 second mark) as years went bye I tweaked my diet. Starting in July I went to more of a "normal" diet. More meat, a couple drinks a couple nights a week, and dessert. For the summer my body was in great shape and I felt amazing, that has continued into the early fall. I'm cycling very well and running like the wind blows but how?
I still sit and think all of the food I have eaten of late will catch up to me. In fact last night I turned down a piece of cake because I didn't workout. Diabetes wise my blood sugars have also gotten better as of late. I honestly can't ask for a better situation than the one I am in right now. I just wish that I wouldn't worry as much about my weight, is it just a normal part of life? We all want the perfect body and to be the perfect weight. I don't have a scale and don't want one, I judge my fitness level by my appearance and how I compete at races. I'm never going to be that guy on the beach with a six pack and the perfect body. I'll be the guy with the big legs, average midsection, and girly arms. I can bike and run for hours on end though so at the end of the day if I'm happy with my body and if someone else finds it attractive than I will be and should be happy with my body.
