Gotta love the holidays


#1

Just wanted to share this with everyone who understands.

I'm at work. I go to the fridge to get a protein shake. The following is sitting out:

Pizza
Donuts
Cookies
Candy

Yet these same people responsible for putting these out are the same people that are always asking about diet.


#2

I honestly don't worry about it. Fortunately for me I have a great metabolism (I'm 24) so I can eat a TON of shit and still have a decent 6 pack. Especially when I'm playing with the chemistry, and looking at the calendar that time is coming real soon. Happy Holidays to all:-)


#3

My kind of diet! Well, the pizza part anyway. I don't go for sweets much.


#4

Yeah, lighten up. Personally I let myself go for a week during Christmas and have no regrets doing so. Food is the gift of life!

Someone from Stockton State is involved in the use of chem-u-stry...man, them guys is smarter den i thought


#6

I had my oat bran and blueberries, some elk and chicken chili, a protein shake, and some of the huge chocolate yule log the boss dropped off. It's a size of a small piece of firewood but hollow, not really hollow though because it was filled with trufffles and mixed chocolates.

January is a good time to diet, December, well, it's just easier to roll with the punches and hit it harder next month.


#7

I always peak my programs early on in the month, then take two weeks or so of "active recovery" and pig out for a while. It's just easier that way.

The problem is, I can't stop myself from working out... tough problem to have.

Goals reached this year:
RKC certification
300# bench press
500+# deadlift

I'm ready to make some new goals and get things started back up.

After some Pizza. Some MORE Pizza.

ITS ONE TIME OF THE YEAR. UNLESS YOU HAVE A COMPETITION SOON, ITS NOT GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE EITHER WAY. EAT SOME PIZZA. YOU MIGHT EVEN GET A LITTLE BIGGER.


#9

I would have eaten that stuff. What I find funny is when you walk into a gym this time of year, and they have a plate of cake, Christmas cookies, candy and such for people to eat. I guess it's good business sense.

Hey Cazzo haven't heard any snide twatty remarks from you lately. How ya been pal? I'm still at the same adress if you want to come see me for the holidays. BTW bring your mom, I've got a nice yule log for her and about a half a pint of hand-made-man-made eggnog for her:-) I know it's her favorite.
