“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”

When I first moved to Wichita Falls, I weighed 195 pounds. I began the linear progression, and ate a lot of food. I ate six eggs every morning, beef quesadillas, a gallon of milk a day, and lots of other stuff. For two or three months I ate those six eggs. It started to get monotonous, so I started trying to put things on them to mask the taste. I tried at least five different kinds of salsa. All were good (I’m in Texas, after all), but each one would turn bland after the second bottle.

It wasn’t long before I started to loathe eggs. It became a struggle to wolf them down every morning. Soon, I hated them. Despised them. I couldn’t have them in my mouth because trying to swallow them nearly produced a gag reflex. That was the damndest thing ever; I had been eating at least three or four eggs every day for the past three years, and now they were suddenly becoming grotesque.

This has happened periodically with food throughout this year. It’s natural to start disliking something because it is repetitive and monotonous. In fact, my friends Chris and AC have both become jaded with eggs too. In my case, I had to start eating something else. For a while I just ate cheeseburger patties for breakfast (with barbecue sauce). I started eating eggs again a few months later, but always with bacon.

Weird set backs are going to happen when you are strength training. You might start hating food that you have always loved. Whatever. Just make a change and keep eating.


Randy and Josh are in Afghanistan doing the linear progression. This is what they do for fun.

Randy consumes raw meat because he is raw.

Josh refuses to get off the scale until it goes up. Randy didn’t have the heart to tell him he was already holding the bag.

Oh, and just so you guys know, my abs are still sore (on Sunday) from front squatting and rack pulls on Friday night. With my belt. Because it makes my abs go to sleep.

  1. I just mixed in a bowl a 1/3 pound burger patty, 2 scrambled eggs, a handful of shredded cheese, and some cranberry sauce. It was pretty fucking tasty.

  2. I can”t believe you snuck an anti-egg post in while I was out of town. All of you are bastards.

    Eggs can be prepared by being fried, scrambled, over easy, over hard, poached, raw, etc. Eggs can be topped with brisket, ham, bacon, sausage, potato, salsa, cheese, gravy, etc. They can be eaten on toast, tortillas, bagels, muffins, etc.

    I”m going to figure out how to make this site translate “I don”t like eggs” to “I”m an uncreative jackass who won”t eat right.” Everyone who spoke out against eggs needs to stand in the corner and read more JM Blakely.
