Cutting Diet and the Holidays

Yeah I didn’t exactly time my calorie restriction phase good with the holidays, but I’m not gunna put it on hold cuz people keep giving me cookie baskets and candy bags at work. What does everyone here do with all this junk food people give you? I’m doing good so far and I don’t want to pack back on 10 pounds during the holidays. But I also don’t want to hurt anyones feelings that I can’t eat this shit. Any ideas?

When people give me stuff, I make sure to open it and ‘share’ with everyone. If I’m out with friends, or at someone else’s home I eat whatever the hell I want. I figure I’m not going to miss out on the good things in life because of my gym addiction. I DON’T keep bad stuff in my own apartment though, the temptation shouldn’t be a daily thing or I know I’ll give in, 1st a little here, then a little there -lol

Obviously cheating here and there hasn’t affected your physique at all. I don’t keep junk food in my house either, and it has helped immensely.

That’s a good tip though…open it for everyone else to share.
