Horrible headache last night; Upcoming vacation announcement; Cutting goal.

I don’t get headaches very often, but last night about an hour before my workout I got a bad one. I have no idea why I got it, but it was definitely sinus-related. The pain was so intense that it made me a bit queasy. As I started my workout, I seriously thought my head was going to explode. After a couple of sets I came very close to throwing in the towel. My strength was good, and I knew that I could fight through the pain if I wanted to. It really boiled down to desire and mental discipline. I talked myself into continuing with the logic that my head was going to hurt no matter what I did, so why not get the job I came to do done and over with? It was not a fun workout: every set was a challenge to start, but I got through it and had a great workout. By the time I finished my workout, the pain in my head was nothing but a dull ache (probably from the endorphin rush). I thought it was a job well done, and was very proud of myself for toughing it out. These kinds of things make a huge difference over the long-haul, and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

I’ve not had any time off since last summer, so I’m going to be taking a two-week vacation in the coming weeks. My vacation will start on December 30, 2006 and run through January 14, 2007. I will resume my daily updates to this site on January 15, 2007. Normally if my vacation falls over the first day of the month I skip my monthly pictures; however, because January 1, 2007 is the end of my bulk and the start of my cut, it’s an important set of pictures. I will be taking my monthly pictures and posting them on the first. I will also be posting my cutting diet on that day, marking the much-requested return of my food logs!

Keep in mind that my food logs will not be updated every day as they once were: I’m going to post an entire week of meals & supplements, and that’s what I’ll be eating week after week so you’ll still be getting complete information. When there are adjustments to my diet, I will update the food logs to reflect those changes.

While on vacation I will still be following a very strict cutting diet, doing my cardio and lifting weights. No messing about: I’ve got fat to lose and new muscle to reveal! I’m very excited about my upcoming cut, and will be working my butt off from day #1 (January 1, 2007). My fat loss goal for this year is to get down to 6% body fat, and I’m going to do it.

When you are doing your holiday shopping, don’t forget about the JSF Shopping Mall. The JSF Shopping Mall is a storefront for Amazon.com, but final checkout is still done directly with Amazon. You’ll enjoy the exact same low prices, selection, security and benefits just as if you were shopping on their regular site. In fact, the JSF storefront software will automatically find the lowest priced item and show that item first when the same items are found with different prices. When you shop Amazon.com through the JSF Mall you are helping to support this site and the forums and it costs absolutely nothing! Making your Amazon purchases through the JSF Mall is an excellent, no-cost way to show your support for JSF!

Questions, comments and suggestion about the JSF Mall should be posted in the ongoing JSF Shopping Mall Thread. If you are looking for some gift ideas, check out my Favorite Things thread.
