  • Eyes from the other side of my partners prep

    This journal is from the following thread http://intensemuscle.com/showthread.php?t=45785 might be a) an eye opener for what you put your partners through or b) no interest therefore I'll scrap it.

    My boyfriend is coming to the end of his 5th week /20 of prep with Skip. We dieted last year together so when he was mighty agitated on the phone I was too, so it didn't matter that we both hung up.

    This time around I'm not dieting, so I'm not going to be has sensitive towards his feelings, has nothing will seem too arduous a task....how easy it is to forget!

    Week 1-2 I expected what G would be like & I was correct.
    I'm small & fat
    was ok with the meal changes, cardio & gym getting into a nice rhythm

    Week 3 more or less similar to the above, only addition was when G stayed at mine he had to use my weighing scales which are lighter, this seemed to find the agitated button ....just a wee bit :yell:

    Week 4-5 mmmm the fun has begun. I soon picked up in phone convo's the 'switch off' button had been resurrected, quite normal most men will say lol, but very apparent. Every time he's been to the gym has rung me on the way home but now that's slowing right down has he lives in a Valley, & the reception is pretty crap, patience has been lost to hit re-dial.

    Getting very agitated now if normal wake up routine of cardio, prep meals etc was a miss....like when G stays at mine. He's a creature of habit, take G out of his home during prep & he eventually becomes a Tasmanian devil.
    The vacant look of 'wtf are you on about woman' has returned on occasion in his eyes, losing his calm nature when he's misplaced items eg the past week G's lost his ipod, earphones 3 times, his HR monitor watch (which he found then broke), HR strap, hat, gym baggies, credit card 3 times! mobile phone which has somehow found wings, yeah twice now found its way flying across the room :hysterica Also not has affectionate not a lot but I notice it, meal times are on the dot nothing gets in the way...which has a bird can leave you feeling like 'mmmm what's happening'

    I know the next 15 weeks are going to be tough, to be honest I didn't expect it to start so early on in prep. I read back on my journals, only thing I picked up on was I was really really anal about gym sessions, & timing of food, talking to my friends I was bad from 2 weeks in....so I just gotta step out of the picture, understand that the prep after having 18 months off season is a real biggy & very important to G, I'll get my G back when it's done. Just have to be patient & 'remember' when he's being an agitated ass, it's not personal, & I can repay the favour when my prep starts the week after G's ends

    Lin prep widow in the making :hysterica

    Hey Lin,

    Does "G" seem to work on his issues / irritability / etc. (I'll leave the other labels to you) or is it "allowed" to a certain extent b/c he's prepping?...

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a pristine, well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, used up, worn out, and shouting, "Holy #$&^%$^... What a ride!!!"

      We both agreed at the beginning of prep, if being an ass was too much of an issue I'd say. He's very very supportive still in everything I do, it's the time when we're leaving for the gym & he's put something down & it's gone when we're going out the door, it hasn't it's still there somewhere lol.

      After I tell G how he's being on the odd occasion, he hasn't realised, & does ponder it. I didn't notice at all when I was preppin until people pointed it out to me.

      If it's at any other time I do take the piss & say come on breathe, & make a joke out of it. When we are further down the road in the prep I'm sure I'll be able to read the leave me alone signs, & it'll be allowed & dismissed by me has prep head. We have come to far to let emotions get in the way when 1 of us is in prep mode

        This should be interesting to follow and should give an insight into how prep affects other people around you and shows why support is necessary

          Hopefully I can make this thread a good read. Not only do you need support you need the right support, especially in the last 6 weeks, where your language you use really needs to be cleaned up, as saying the wrong thing eg god your looking small etc can really screw someone's head up.
          Keep any problems to yourself as the prep person only has enough brain span to deal with small things
