    Sucks to be you.

    Discipline, focus, patience, persistence, positivity, and work ethic are all attributes of a "real jock." If someone (say, you) won't get off their ass, well, from a distance, there's not much that can be done to incentive you.

    What he means to say is:

    EAT.


    But seriously, it took me a long time to stop thinking about getting fitter and actually getting to it... the more you immerse yourself, physically, into the realm of fitness and working out, the easier it becomes.

    It's the problem of actually getting there... but once you have a plan, either from this site or Bodybuilding.com, once you have a clean nutrition plan that lets you put on mass or weight, then you can get into a gym and begin the process.

    Do it in the morning. Force yourself. You can do it. And suddenly, you won't even be tired after school.

    After many reading many Chuckystud thoughts and opinions throughout the forum, I have to say that this one is BANG ON. (And almost polite) hehehe

    You need to do it for yourself, find something deep within that positively motivates you to get there - and once you start seeing the results - it just gets easier from there - and you get hungry for more.

    Patience is the key as well - because it doesn't happen overnight, and you have to realize that you need to set goals, and timelines to achieve those goals, otherwise, you're going to be just spinning your wheels.

    Good Luck.. Try it out with a trainer at first, or a workout buddy - someone who will assist you in making that commitment to being there everyday.

    Have you tried sports? Perhaps football or wrestling ... the daily practices are pretty killer and there is a great motivation not to get yelled at by the coach and running suicides til you cry icon_lol.gif

    You've been a good student, and I'm proud of you. You are ON YOUR WAY.

    Eat more, as already mentioned here. Eat CLEAN (fruits, vegetables, Greens, whole grains, nuts, lean meats, dairy, etc). Every month Men's health pretty much outlines all the best foods you should be combining to make a healthy diet.

    I also like to suggest liquid Vitamin B-12 for natural energy boosting. Works for me! Or, I often have an apple or banana with a handful of almonds 20 minutes before working out. Such healthful snacks offer a good combination of carbs, protein, and healthy fats.

    In addition to eating more (especially important at breakfast time), I find that Music is a great motivator for me. Find a good up-beat mix of music you like, crank it up on your headphones or whatever, and before you know it- you will be dancing, doing pushups, running, and/or lifting weights with more ease. If you make your routine Fun, you will be more likely to succeed.

    Good luck and keep us all posted on your progress!

    I think eating is the least of the OP's concern right now. He needs to overcome his laziness. Nothing we can do here. He needs to help himself first.

    This is the politest I have seen Chucky, WTF happened? I hope he isn't getting soft, his posts have converted me over to being an unsympathetic, unabashed asshole when it comes to my clients or infrequent posters on this site.

    My mom got her hip replaced a week before Thanksgiving. She complained to me how life is just hard so I dropped a Chucky line, "Suck it up, someone else has it worse", she then finished her PT with much vigor.

    Ummm...no offense, but if high school is tiring you out, you've got a whole lot more coming at you once you hit college and the real world! I work a 9 to 5 job monday thru friday, and have night classes from 6 to 10 monday thru thursday. I workout for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours a day on top of that. Get yourself into the mode of not chillin and laying around after your homework is done and you'll be able to do it. Trust me, once you've got a routine down, you hardly even think about doing it...you just do!

    Eating "clean" often makes it very hard to get adequate calories to make gains. For a young man, an abundance of calories is critical. It's nearly impossible to get enough calories on just fruits and veggies. Sleep, calories, and coffee with help your energy levels, as well as perceived exertion levels, much more than B12.

    No man, I haven't changed. You just got lucky.

    Life sucks. Life doesn't suck. It's all perspective.

    Glad to hear your mom is doing better.

    I'm happy to report I got my brace off five weeks early on my biceps tear. I asked the PT folks to fast track me and the doctor was pleased. In fact, I'm off to unrestricted lifting December 28, a full five weeks before expected.
