I get so sick of the looks I get from other people who live in my building waiting for the elevator when I decide to hoof it up to my 12th floor apartment. If I had a dime for every person who takes the elevator for just a flight or two of steps I'd have....well....a lot of dimes.
kiss = keep it simple, sister!
After starting a leangains paleo approach to leaning out and getting stronger... I'm now benching above my body weight and deadlifting double my weight.
My complaint? My friends are starting to make fun of me for being a starving abercrombie boy and that I have to "kill myself" to get my look. I have completely stopped talking about anything related to health and fitness with my friends because it just falls on deaf ears. My one other friend has also manged to get pretty ripped...but he is dead set on his bodybuilding.com diet of 150% fat free chicken breast and lettuce. Yes, that was a joke.
My other complaint -- I walk really fast to get places...and people just generally get in my way and don't know how to yield. seriously, just move over guy.
Primal has caused me to have too many medical tests
Now that I am not over weight, any health issue I report to my physician is suddenly taken seriously and tests are promptly ordered. All of a sudden I have follow-up tests for things that were dismissed a year ago as nothing. I find it pretty sad how well I am treated as a "normal weight" patient compared to when I was overweight.
I can't stop gaining muscle, especially in my upper back. Seriously, it sucks.
People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
It was so sad to see DH's face when a new aquaintance assumed we had a "professor/student relationship" (ie. that DH was much older than me) and we had to admit DH is only a year older, that I had gone back to college so I was a student over the traditional age and DH was a new young professor at the time. (he is sticking to his SAD, while I go primal)
