beat as ****...
i recently fell on this downhill slope of motivation when it comes to training and dieting. i've trained consistently for 3 years and have loved every second of it. i would take a week off every 3 months. other than that, not too many days missed.
currently, i feel like **** when it comes to lifting. i just got a fantastic job, but it is stressful as ass, but i kind of like it. ntm, its an hour drive, so 2hrs round trip. on top of that its 9 hour days (1hr for lunch) so by the time i get home i am beat as hell (i'm gone from 6am to 5pm). i have been in a better mood since i started this position, but my motivation to lift is hardly existent. i usually have time to sleep and cook and watch a movie or something and then my days over.
because of all of this, i've been eating like **** and lifting MAYBE twice a week (my normal routine consists of 4 days). i'm still making strength gains and am getting bulkier (prob fat), but it takes so much for me to just do it. i still think about it all the time, but i'm definitely slipping, and don't want to be. i also started a "bulk" in june (trying to go from 175 to 205 by jan-feb), so a lack of training isn't going to help, and ****ty food is just going to make me truly a fotoss.
i'm moving soon, so i'm hoping that will kick my ass into gear once i have a new place (with a garage, totally going to be dedicated to the iron).
anyone else ever have this happen? any advice on getting over this bitch ****?

Oh yeah, the diet is your responsibility. The healthier you eat the better you feel, but I think you already know this... Good luck

I went through the same thing man. Was working 9 hour days, 6 days a week at a job where I was making a lot of money, but was beating me up physically. I was going to the gym at 10 at night but was already mentally and physically tired by the time I got there.
If you were to get equipment at your new place I am sure that will help you. In my case, I ultimately decided to seek out a new career, so idk how much help I can be lol"if there's one thing women love, it's a vascular man" - stewie griffin

I work 48 hours on/48 hours off. I have a small gym I can use at work. I know how you feel. sometimes I'll be working for 10 hours straight and then have to suck it up and find the motivation to go in and squat at 9pm
Maybe figure out how I make going to the gym enjoyable again? Let it feel like a hobby, something to look forward to doing.

as far as the diet, i think its just that lack of sleep on top of stress = cravings bs thats got me pounding the donuts. my body may just be adjusting to the new sleep schedule and added pressure as well, so i'm just all out of whack. need to break free of this garbage

luckily, i got a butt ton of equipment (power rack, gym mats, so ive always trained at home. i almost feel as if that could be a reason too. since im at home and tired i'm just like "**** it". maybe hitting a gym would be a bit motivating... i just hate the gym.

training in the morning is a good suggestion, it will give you energy and you 'll feel ready to tackle the workload you got.
the only ****ty part is dragging your ass out of bed that early and having to shower at the gym with all the retired naked people lol
