Vacation in 24 hours help me!!!!

Or kiss my a$$ I have been working at it for a year and a half. Sun here I come!!!!!

I am not going to worry about diet much at all. Not much beer drinking but some. I will get plenty of exercise, may run in the morning but vacation itself will be plenty of calorie burning.

nothing is better than a vacation in the sun when you feel confident with your shirt off, especially if you've been on plenty before where you were self conscious etc

enjoy it! you've earned it

I think I look the best I ever have and will still take a few drinks and about an hour or 2 to feel comfortable for my vacation in May

People like you annoy the fuuck out of me. Sorry for being so blunt but if the only people you workout for are people you don't know it's pretty sad.

I will always feel accomplishing something I think is hard rather than getting a compliment from a stranger is way more satisfying.

If the only reason you lift is to impress people I'd give up if I were you. You have a long road ahead if that's all you care about.

I workout and stay active to be a better athlete, and to live a long and prosperous life. That's why I think bicep curls are a joke for instance... where is the functional strength in that.

looking good is a "side effect" so to speak

That's how I see it. I want to look amazing but I'm not going to go crazy with over doing it with my diet and doing boring workouts.

I like it when I get you all hyped up and annoy you.

There was a lol at the end of my post. It was a sarcastic comment. Chill out Solly! Not many married guys with kids work out.

On a serious note, most people work out to look good. #1 reason I work out is to release my anger otherwise I won't be pleasant to deal with.

Within the next 12-20 years we'll be able to manipulate the foxo gene. The one that affects telomeres degeneration and cause cell death. So we'll get an extra 20-50 years of life expectancy. Stop working out if you wan to live longer, it's an inefficient way of accomplishing that goal. Individuals with calorie restricted diets have shown to outlive others with normal calories intake or above average intake.

You can live longer on calorie restriction, but that does not mean you'll be functional.
