my body is going to be taking advantage of the extra rest and calories, nothin like a plate piled high with sweet taters, turkey, brussell sprouts, stuffing, jellied cranberry sauce (love the stuff, only have it once a year) and a little turkey gravey, all mixed together into thanksgiving or christmas goulash pie. lol

Last year, Christmas Eve, took a break from our family party here at the house to go downstairs and workout. Had to get out of my Christmas outfit, put on some workout gear and do work. Lasted about 45 minutes, chugged some creatine, showered down there, put my outfit back on, came back upstairs to eat.... It was fun to do all that, but I think I'll enjoy my Christmas this year, maybe get my workout done earlier!!

I'll definitely be enjoying the 2 weeks or so off of school.
I'll be doing the same thing I do every year, basically - relaxing at home, going to my grandmas' (2), seeing my grandpa, etc. I'll still be on my program, though. And I'll be taking advantage of all that extra food... Speaking of which, I can't wait 'till next Thursday!

I'll be lifting right through the holidays. I won't be lifting on X-mas day, or Thanksgiving day, but I'll be training on the days before and after. I'll also be eating a shit-ton.

For Christmas I'm heading back home to my beloved Chicago. Then I will sit down with my family, and eat like I have no sense in the world because everybody knows college cafe food is horrible. Then we'll have the gift opening session too, getting some goodies this year I hope. Other than that it's all just love and family, might even spoil myself if I'm really feeling good and have a drink with my Dad.
But like many animals I'll be training through the holidays when I can. There's a "fitness" center right across my house. Even though I kind of hate the place, people there rarely use the weights I'm handling so thats a plus. No waiting for squats, or leg press, or incline.

How about New Years though? I'm thinking thats a day to party a little bit harder myself.

Fuckin' Awesome! haha, if that was the way santa was portrayed, kids would be leaving protein bars, or protein shakes by the fire place instead of cookies. And asking for a weight set.

I'm gonna follow through with my diet on turkey day cause i'm not going home, so that helps. For christmas, ill be sticking to the diet until christmas dinner, i go to school out of state so i dont see the family much so ill share that with them and also i graduate from college this december so i gotta celebrate that too ;) And keto has done wonders for me, i think i'm gonna stick with this all year round, waist is getting smaller loosing fat, rest of the body is getting big and vascularity is popping everywhere, saw some new veins pop up around the peck-delt tie in area this morning. Happy and Safe Holidays to all the Animals! my brothers of the iron!

Turkey Day tomorrow, family, food, and fun....

Back on course until the diet plan changes (probably the 13th)... Will get the Saturday before Christmas, Christmas, and New Years off the diet... THEN the BOOM is lowered... Training stays the same... The only days I won't be doing "SOMETHING" will be tomorrow and Christmas...

Getting ready to put my game face back on....
