Happy 2017 – Let’s Cut!

So it’s now 2017. Initially I was going to start with a clean bulk but I feel like, over the last few weeks, I gained just that hair of extra fat that I don’t really want on me when I start a bulk since there’s a risk it’d overtake my muscle gains. Can’t be having with that so at the moment I plan on going through the old Buff Dudes 12 Week Program while I do some cutting – gonna be a lot of chicken and vegetables and eggs in my future while I get myself a nice early-year shred.

After that I’ll write myself a bulking program or use the Buff Dudes bulking program depending on how my next twelve weeks go. Either way, it should be fun. Happy New Year!

 

Oh also, I wrote a journal entry here at least once a week (usually Sunday or Monday) every single week of 2016. I still plan on continuing that tradition so see you next week.

Happy 2017 – Let’s Cut!

The First Week Off

So as of early this week I decided to take a break from most social media until New Years. Let’s face it, the world sucks. But I really want to get into the Christmas spirit to keep myself sane, so I prescribed myself a lack of Facebook and Twitter to allow that to happen for self-care.

My prompt was on For The Win though, so that’s pretty cool. No spoilers but it was well cool.

The First Week Off

Run Ragged

On purpose. Basically, work it great. Working out is great. I’m also trying to be more active on my Instagram on a fitness level. But at the heart of the matter I am running myself so ragged because I’m still enraged and disgusted that Donald Trump got even a single vote, let alone won the election, and am trying to keep my brain from being 100% consumed with it at all times, as it would otherwise be. America voted for an idiot Nazi. Even if his accusations of illegal voters trigger a recount that forces him to lose, it’s like stabbing your dad. Even if he survives, you still stabbed your dad and have to deal with it.

Even if Trump is stopped from being President, America still elected a homophobic, racist Nazi to be President. America has proven to be a place filled with evil, ignorant people. People who think being accused of (and repeatedly acquitted for) poor e-mail management is worse than sexual assault and actual fascism. America has proven it is not a good or worthwhile place that has outlived its glory years and when it’s done with it’s long, slow suicide the rest of the world won’t mourn but breathe a sigh of relief that the dangerous alcoholic uncle is gone.

Think about that. Keep thinking about that. Because that’s the remaining duration of American history in a nutshell and we just get to watch it play out whether we like it or not. But like I started with, don’t make it 100% of your brain power. You still have to live even if the world is debatably irredeemably broken and not worth the effort of saving.
