completely letting go

how many of you have already got in to 'Christmas mode' ?
 
i'm well bad, my diet has been shiiiite for the last couple of weeks and i've only been gym twice a week for the same time! proper slacking today, treats being handed around work, I usually say no but fck it it's Xmas!!!
 
today i've had 2 cissy greens meat pies, 2 custard doughnuts, loads of chocolates. i've not actually eaten any decent proper food today
 
come January 5th i'll be smashing the gym, so why not indulge for a few weeks eh!

    My food doesn't really change a great deal over christmas (other than alcohol).
    If I do have cake or chocolate, then I will have it with a pro shake and count it as a meal.  Most of my xmas food involves cold meats, smoked salmon, pickles, salami, etc.  I love sherry though...

    If you're eating more junk then drop some of your usual food and stay lean.

    Simples.

    I get criticized for running when I'm on holiday, as I should be on holiday???  Why would you stop doing something you enjoy becuase you're on holiday?

    Although I will be working email & phone, I'm thoroughly ready for holiday mode... won't be training again 'til last few days of this month, depending on family stuff.
     
    As for completely letting go, I will probably do some IF to off-set the overindulgence destined for my lean-ish frame.  As long as I don't shoot back up over 90kg (without lifting weights) I'll be happy.

    I'll be doing plenty of eating, but made it to the gym on Saturday and just got back from doing legs today, so with another session on upper body this coming Saturday hopefully the muscles will be gobbling up all those lovely extra nutrients! Yum yum.

    Try to stand still rather than go backwards is my advice. Eat what you want, but try to keep it under control. Well positioned breaks in your training can also be useful.

    I'm managing to still train and got a couple of weekend sessions in to get ahead for this week. But since I came off my diet on Thursday I've gone nuts with junk food. Mainly because I've had a few nights out and needed junk the next day.

    Need to watch myself as I've still got 2 weeks off work and it could very easliy get messy.

    I'm ok with indulging but not missing the gym too much ie: more than 2-3 days. I'd ache way too much when I start back.
