I fucking miss lifting- a lot, but at this current station in my life I really can't be consistent enough with diet and lifting to really make it count. It sucks, but i'm ok with it, because otherwise things are going really well.
With that being said, I think being away from the game for awhile definitely lends a new perspective on it all.
It's not that complicated, and a lot of times we make it seem more complicated than it is. When I get back into it, i'm definitely not wasting my time with all this mental masturbation and OCD complex regarding programing and eating and all that shit.
I'm just going to work out 4 days a week on a split, and do whatever the fuck I feel like doing that day, so if Monday becomes back and bis i'll just do whatever I want that day, however many reps and sets feels right.
Count calories and weigh food yes, maybe, but at the same time, look at the mirror and observe body composition and measurements more than what the scale tells me, also using strength as a baseline.
