Commitment. Basically. That and I wouldn't get my greens in and end up shitting my brains out.

I found a diet of coffee, salad and hate has worked for me in the past.
Message permalink: 713610331821310062
I have actually done that same diet in the past but with a stupid amount of running
Message permalink: 713610533538103316
I just got a puppy a week ago and get on the ground and wrestle with her for a while. Gets my heart going and a good sweat without being high impact. Do that a couple of times a day and my exercise bike as well as a diet change and I should be solid.

The best motivation is the long term investment of having achieved something and not wanting to lose it. Don’t rely too heavily on one thing for motivation, such as a one year goal. It’s best to understand early on that fitness is something you do until you’re old and gray or die. When just starting, use every bit of motivation you can though and don’t overwhelm yourself by changing every aspect of your life at once. Start small and build momentum. Cut out sodas for a month, then fast food, then switch to whole grain wheat products only, then cut out processed foods, etc. I drink sweet tea still, but I consistently decreased the amount of sugar I put in it over many months to the point you can hardly tell there’s sugar in it at all. I can, but that’s because I’ve cut out soda, even diet, altogether, to the point my tastebuds are more receptive to small amounts of sugar. And I still only drink a cup a day. The rest is water and milk. Once you get to the point you’ve bought a home gym, a nice water filter, and a nice pair of running shoes e.g. $1000+ worth of investment AND convenience...it’s hard to turn around on it. Thus, the cost sunk fallacy comes into play. Still doesn’t prevent burning out. Imo the only thing that does that is accepting this is a permanent lifestyle change, which brings us back to not overwhelming yourself until you’ve gotten to that point.

The amount of willpower gained up to that point is considerable as well

Good to know I could take a beanbag and likely live. Assuming no weird heart things associated with the shot.

Don’t, for the love of God, stretch like they did back in the 70s and 80s, that’ll ruin your hips and knees and you’ll end up with replacements at the ripe old age of 40

Any advice for full kit rucking? Can I just bring a weighted bar to simulate a rifle? Or am I better off just going innawoods some place random?

a weighted bar would be better than nothing. my advice is bring a shitton of water.

however much water you think you'll need, double it
