I’m feeling very unmotivated this morning. Not unmotivated as in lazy, unmotivated as in I don’t feel like sitting in front of a damn computer all day long. Today’s a cardio day, and I really want to get outside and do some real trail riding. I have so much to do that I don’t think that’s going to be possible, but I’m going to see if I can shift my schedule around so I can at least take this morning off.
I’ve definitely put on some fat over the last couple of months. I’m still pretty lean at around 10-11% body fat, but I can feel the difference in how my clothes fit. I was thinking about a mini-cut, but I’ve decided that I’m not going to bother with trying to cut during the holidays. I’m going to continue eating a semi-relaxed diet through the holidays and then start my usual pre-spring cut in January. I’ll probably cut with the same goal as last year – 7% body fat.
I figure as long as I’m eating above maintenance, I might as well focus my weight training on strength building. I’ll still do some intensity/volume work here and there, but for the most part my lifting over the next couple of months is going to be centered around low volume, compound exercises and very heavy weights. Heavy weights and no-shave November go well together.
Man, I have to get off this computer for a while. I feel like I’m going stir-crazy. Where’s my bike…
