    I feel like I'm whining whenever I bring this
    But again, I'm feeling a lack of "drive" to keep at my routines! Nutrition is lacking... Feel lazy and unmotivated in general. And this is the time of year to really try and bulk and make some gains!

    I'm sure I'm not the only one... But does anyone have any good tips to keep at it...? To keep yourself from "dropping out"...?

    You are not alone... I have trouble cutting down lately. The first 10 pounds came off no problem...then my body's innate survival mechanism protested once I got to about 210 pounds. I would like to cut down to a very lean level and be "ripped", so I need to lose about 10-20 more pounds at least to reach that level. But my appetite/hormones/desire to eat and stay fat...they have been winning lately. I have basically not lost any bodyfat for the last three weeks, and so i am realizing I need to get more serious about "getting ripped" and find a way to increase motivation/ overcome cravings/appetite.

    Its hard. Good luck.

    I hate cutting ... it's balls.

    Having said that, I never lose motivation for the actual training. Maybe a bit of "Feeling pretty tired/fatigued today..." before a session from time to time, but hitting the gym and getting to it, moving literally tonnes of weight per session keeps me going.

    Watching a few wannabes elbowing each other out the way to do curls in front of the mirror whilst rack pulling a near quarter tonne is pretty motivating as well. It's a nice affirmation.

    I got serious about cutting today too. Going to be much more militant about measuring my food, tracking calories and following my diet. Should reach my goal and be in the top shape of my life in about 8 weeks. :)

    I get that feel sometimes too man, you're not the only one. But on those days you just gotta push through it, always better days ahead! Oh, also taking a pwo helps lol. Currently taking hemavol, stuff is awesome for pumps. But it's a stim-free pwo, so I'll drink a cup of coffee for the caffeine along with the hemavol. Explosive workouts! Keep ya head up!!
