6 More Days Until Christmas

There are only 6 more days until Christmas and boy are we excited to dip into the egg nog!

Have you kept your fitness and nutrition in check this holiday season? Have you been able to stay slim this holiday or at least maintain your current progress?

Relax a Little

Hopefully, you have, so you can let your guard down a bit during Christmas or your main celebration day of choice. There’s no need to be a pig and eat ALL the fudge and cookies, but there’s also no need to avoid all desserts and gravies like the plague. (Have you finished all of your shopping and most of your wrapping?)

I know if your form is bad or good,
and how many scoops are in your protein shakes.

Bro, do you even lift?

24 Best Christmas Movies and Cartoons

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Santa ClausPart of living a healthy lifestyle is getting the proper amount of rest and relaxation. Without rest our bodies can not recover from stress, and we end up getting sick.

One method of relaxation that I frequently use, is watching movies. I personally love the horror and sci-fi genres, but a good comedy is always welcome.

During the Christmas and Holiday season I love to watch the traditional Holiday movies that I grew up with as a kid like The Christmas Story, as well as some of the excellent newer flicks like Bad Santa, and some unpopular films that I personally love like Ernest Saves Christmas.

Updated for 2016!

Warning: some of the videos below (like Bad Santa) contain R-rated content. Don’t view them if you are easily offended.

Josie Maurer of writes today’s guest post. Josie is a woman who eats and then talks about it. She and her “Greedy Taste Testers” tell us all about the different kinds of foods they eat in an attempt to find a way of life that balances fitness and a taste for great cuisine.

Josie wants you to ditch the weight loss gimmicks, deprivation of so-called “forbidden foods”, and severe calorie deprivation, in favor of Moderation, Discipline, Portion Control, and Commitment to exercising and eating healthy.

The Battle of the (Belly) Bulge

So you’ve been cruising along smooth with your food-eating under control. You’re losing weight and building muscle, and when you glance in the mirror you can’t help but to notice your sexy swagger. But then it happens. A sugary avalanche starts rolling your way and it’s camouflaged real pretty as holiday eating.

How do you escape that office party complete with cookies, cakes and dainty candies? What happens when your neighbor shoves a 5-pound gift can of chocolates into your claws? All this holiday fanfare can obviously threaten to undo your good fitness deeds, so check out these warning signs:

Your heart rate begins to escalate. Sweat droplets of temptation bead across the forehead as your top lip begins to quiver. Your breathing becomes labored and your taste buds salivate with sugary desire…

How are you going to weasel your way out of this one? Do you just cave and eat the damn food, or do you squirm under pressure and tell yourself “no way!” before you eat the damn food anyway?

December is Not a Time to Slack

Hello to all Project Swole subscribed readers and also to any new visitors that are stopping by. As you can see from the dates on my recent posts, I have not been posting very often since before Thanksgiving.

So why is this? I have been busy, busy, busy. Got alot going on trying to manage the job, the clients, the Project Swole, and trying to get a new social bookmarking site off the ground. Details about this coming later this week or early next week.

The reality is that December is not a time to slack. Therefore I am going to make a pledge to post nearly every day for the rest of the month, a practice I hope to continue into next year.
