Much needed rest today; Four weeks to go.

I’m still bleeding off the four pounds of bloat I added just from Thanksgiving day. I shed half of that water weight yesterday, and hopefully the rest of it will be gone today. My finger and joints feel achy and stiff when I’m holding this much water. The Thanksgiving meal must have been quite a shock to my system after over 2 months of 100% clean, all-natural foods. Although, as cheat meals go, Thanksgiving dinner was far from horrible compared to some of the cheat meals I’ve had.

With the exception of a little traps work tomorrow afternoon, I’ve got the next couple of days off from training. I really need the rest – I’m feeling a little extra bruised and banged up after my bloody workout on Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, if you missed yesterday’s update I put a bunch of pictures with captions up in my 2008 Thanksgiving Photo Album.

I’ve now completed nine weeks of my thirteen week bulk. I’ve had some of the most incredible and intense workouts of my life on this bulk, and I can say with all honesty that I’ve put everything I have into my training and diet. There are just four weeks to go, and my goal is to make these last four weeks the best of all.

I’ve been putting some thought into my upcoming post-bulk cutting phase, and I’m thinking about starting my cut on February 1st instead of January 1st. I think it might be nice to give my body a chance to recover from the bulk by taking a month to sort of relax the intensity of my workouts a bit and eat at maintenance. We’ll see.

Tomorrow I’ll be back with my weekly tape measurements and body fat reading. See you then!
