Tis the Season to be CRAPULOUS!!!!

Tis the Season to do WHAT!!!????

I tell people ALL the time that I am NOT fluent in English – even though it is my native tongue.

A year ago on Thanksgiving Day it was proven yet again.

You see, Meriam-Webster kindly sends me a “Word of the Day”.

Last Thanksgiving the chosen word was “CRAPULOUS”, the definition of which is “marked by intemprance (excessive indulgence) especially in eating or drinking”.

Of course, being easily amused, I LOVED the word the minute I read it (reason will be obvious to others as easily entertained as I), and the meaning just brought it all home for me!! ;o)

Although the term “Crapulous” is most often used as an adjective, last year and every Holiday Season hereafter will be celebrated in the VERB sense of the word…..spent being vivaciously CRAPULOUS!!

Don’t Be Skeered….Take a Break!

C’mon, after a year’s worth of strictly following the nutritional Fuel Plan to lean down for competitions and/or maintain between competitive events, we all need a little breather!

So, hopefully, as I, y’all have allowed yourself to Relax, Relate, Release and fully enjoy some Holiday Treats and Totties!!

Which in Bodybuilding terms is CRAPULOUS!

Tis the Season….within Reason….

Now, havin’ said ALL that….I’m NOT sayin’ make yourself sick, as the second definition of “CRAPULOUS” describes.

That would turn the “Celebration” into “Flatulation” etc. and would be most unpleasant. ;o/

Celebration Recommendations

I would strongly recommend maintaining both your FUEL PLAN and GYM habits during this “Season”.

Eat in the same meal pattern (squeaky clean) on the days between Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, etc and New Year’s.

On the days that you have parties scheduled. Eat clean for all meals you typically would eat prior to the party and then enjoy the party.

For example, I typically eat 5 meals a day. I would eat clean for meals 1, 2 and 3. I would then essentially leave the last 2 meals (4 &5) as “Party Time” caloric intake.

Your scheduled Gym Time will be a different kind of party during this season of Crapulousness!

In fact…the EXTRA Carbs will “Enhance” your Training Sessions!!! Ha! Ha!

Seriously, your workouts will be AMAZING having that extra boost of energy!!

Continuing your CARDIO regimine will help to ward off packin’ on too many pounds.

And you won’t have to worry about fryin’ off the muscle you’ve been workin’ on gainin’, cause those extra carbs will be the fuel source your body taps into. ;O)

It’s a break of sorts, but lets not wreck all the prior accomplishments of 2011. ;o)
