I’ve only got two weeks left in my planned 2008 bulk, but something in the back of my mind has been itching the hell out of me for the past few weeks. This morning I decided to scratch that itch; this is my announcement that I’ve decided to extend my bulk for an additional four weeks. Man, it feels great just to finally type that! I know I have more in me, and I just don’t want to stop right now. So, my bulk will now end on January 25, 2009 (17 total weeks). I’ll take the last week in January off from lifting, and will start my cut sometime in February (I have not decided exactly when).
I’ve opened the January 2009 “100 Challenge” for entry. This is your chance to get 2009 off to a fantastic start by making a public commitment to your fitness program and then holding yourself accountable. In November we had ONE person who completed the challenge. Pardon me for pointing out the obvious, but that’s pathetic. I don’t want to see a bunch of abandoned entries, deleted posts and lame excuses in January. In other words, don’t bother signing up unless you are going to see the challenge through until the end. I don’t expect anyone to be perfect, but I do expect the entrants of these challenges to at least live up to their commitments and complete them. The number of points you have at the end of the month is not nearly as important as the accomplishment of living up to your word and FINISHING. Come on, people – get fired up!
