Biggest challenge is not letting hectic life interfere with making healthy choices.

I am a poor sleeper. I wake naturally after 5 hours and I cannot get back to sleep. Eight hours? I wish!

BIGGDADD - I relate as I have been struggling with snacking as well...I find the afternoons are the most difficult...boredom may trigger the craving...then to the snack jars, although I stock healthier snacks I am eating too much...I have been buying less and eliminating certain items all together as to not be tempted...I also try to have fruit and veg available...and I attempt to get involved in an activity during those difficult times of day...I am still working on it...

BIGGDADD, mine is/was food + beer. Beer is no longer part of my diet (been that way for close to a year and a half), and thankfully, I don't miss it. On the food side, it was a combination of less calories and higher quality foods. I still snack, but it is now and then, as opposed to daily.

I did have to turn to a medical solution (Lapband) in order to achieve the goals I set, so I give anyone who can do it without medical intervention all the credit in the world.

So, I was just curious to see what other men's biggest fitness hurdles were. Whether it's health related, exercise, eating, etc. I want to hear what slows you down. For me, it's snacking. I LOVE food. I hate that I love food, but I do. Snacking is the biggest thing I need to overcome and/or alter to really succeed.

What's your story?
