Dave Tate, from Elite Fitness Systems, rants a bit about getting lean in his training log.
Read it a couple of times. It's the truth.
This struck a chord with me today. I've been eating like shit for the better part of two years, and haven't been training regularly. I was smoking again. I drink too much. Not just strength stopped being a priority, my health did.
Over the course of the past month or so, I've had some people close to me get very, very bad health news, and I've been dealing with something that could end up being pretty serious, too. Dave's little rant is one more thing helping me put it back together.
