    Not tips on what to eat or an exercise plan, that's the easy part.

    But advice on actually being motivated enough to 1) start a plan and then 2) stick with it, build momentum, etc.

    I find myself waking up with all the right intentions and by that night I'm back in "Fuck working out... have some beer and pizza instead" mode.

    Put up a bunch of posters of muscular guys all around your house.

    Pretend that you're Ronnie or Paulie D or the Situation. Those guys are pretty fit.

    I've been taking 200mg caffeine pills pre-workout for years. It motivates you even when you don't feel like working out and caffeine pills have zero calories. :woot:

    Think about it next GF, but you want to show up. Or a girl that you want to hook up with, but she might be Ottavio Lee for now. Or just think of the higher caliber of trim that you'll be pulling once you get Bawlf.

    When I was a trainer I discovered that vanity is a far better motivator than health or performance.

    diets don't work, they are just temporary. if you want to maintain, it requires a lifestyle (not sexually) change.

    Swing by the run, push-up. sit-up threads in the Health and Wellness forum.

    Plenty of peer motivation there. :dance:

    Methamphetamine gives you a double benefit of killing your appetite, and giving you lots of energy to work out! :cheer:
