    A Day in the Life of Spongy

    I'm not posting this for any recognition or anything like that, just as an example of "working with what you've got." The most common thing I hear from clients is "I don't have time." Whether it's to train, to eat, to pin, to sleep, to bones, whatever... So here is a typical day for me.

    0330 - Wake
    0400 - Arrive at Gym for lifting
    0500 - Hit the shower
    0530 - Post Workout Nutrition while driving to work
    0600 - Get to Work
    0900 - 10 oz egg whites (muscle egg), handful of almonds
    1130 - Prank Call PoB
    1200 - 10 oz egg whites (muscle egg), handful of almonds
    1215 - Check SI
    1400 - Receive half-naked photos from Manny1656, strictly for tracking progress up to the show
    1500 - 10 oz egg whites, BCAAs, 1 cup blueberries
    1600 - Yell at someone, fix their mess
    1700 - Leave work
    1730 - Arrive and gym for cardio
    1820 - Leave Gym, call clients
    1830 - Get home
    1900 - Dinner
    1905 - Email clients, do diets, get rejected by the wife
    2000 - Bed

    Now, that is for a day when I have to work (5 days per week). On my days off I tend to be a bit more relaxed, but that is when I get the bulk of my Helios Nutrition work done (get caught up on emails, finish diets, make calls to partners, etc).

    As you can see, on the days I work I literally have zero time to myself. That is a sacrifice that I choose to make for my health and for my goals. I have found the balance in my life by enjoying the days that I can. My days off are indeed full of Helios type things, but I reserve evenings for my wife, and I make sure that I do my fair share of the work.

    I do not believe that being this rigid is for everyone, but I have come to realize that for ME PERSONALLY, I must remain extremely disciplined in order to get what I want. I have found that it is entirely too easy for me to fall off the wagon if I don't.

    It takes more than one person though. I have the support of my wife and my good friends. While I joke about Manny1656 texting my half-naked photos, the truth is he is my "battle buddy" in all of this. He holds me accountable and I him. I can not overstate the importance of this. When life sucks, and all you want to do is sleep in, eat a pizza, and drink a milkshake you have those comrades beside you pushing you past your breaking point. You emerge much stronger and more disciplined.

    Important to note I am following a modified version of the Warrior Diet, so that's why the egg whites all the time.

    I don't know how you guys lift immediately after waking. I've never felt it to be prime exercise time. I have to be up for a few hrs at least with two meals in me.

    And I was about to ask how much do you love egg whites? The warrior diet..is that dinner meal consist of some more whole foods. Warrior diet is smaller lighter meals throughout the day until nighttime correct?

    I modified the warrior diet to fit my body type so I am still technically carb cycling. My first three meals are 10oz egg whites or 1 cup greek yogurt. I then usually add almonds or blueberries depending on how many carbs i need. No carb days are strictly egg whites though as greek yogurt contains some carbs.

    My dinners are massive. 2000 calories or more. All clean. Usually takes me an hour to eat.

    I then finish off with a pre bedtime meal consisting of 30 slow-digesting proteins.

    Im able to have fantastic workouts in the morning because of the huge meal the night before and because my pre workout supp is damn near incredible.

    Results from this style of dieting are great for me, but would not suggest for everyone.

    Spongy, is there a reason that you do your lifting in the AM and cardio in the PM? I would think most people do the opposite. Just curious..

    Since the bulk of my calories come in the evening due to my diet, i am actually much stronger and more effective in the morning. By the time 1700 rolls around I am beat and quite hungry. My cardio is LISS for 45 min, so its ok that I'm tired and hungry.
