Tips for keeping muscle while on holidays (or taking a break from the gym) – 1️⃣Be in a calorie surplus ✅ If you’re overeating calories, your not very likely to drop much muscle. – ❎ You may however, be fat when you return, so you may need to account for that. – However, providing you’re not too fussed with a bit of extra body fat when you come back (maybe you leaned down a bit before you went on a break) means you shouldn’t stress too much. You’re not likely to “waste away” taking some time off from the gym. – 2️⃣ Prioritize protein ✅ Even with higher calories you still want to make sure you’re getting your protein in. – ✅ Protein helps to both build, and maintain muscle, so it makes sense to focus on that. Chances are all of the holiday food will contain MORE than enough fats and carbs anyway. – 3️⃣ Drink water. Nothing in like is a magic pill Except water. Water is magic. – 🇩🇰 Enjoy yourself, life is about balance (kind of). If you’re used to training hard then a few weeks off won’t kill you, you likely won’t move backwards very far and once you’re back to routine you’ll get back to where you left off pretty quickly! 🇩🇰

If only it was that easy, right? – *Trigger warning* If you get stressed ordering food of a menu, you’ll probably get stressed making life altering decisions 🤐😂 – Ever said you’re going through an “Existential Crisis”? Ever overthink the big picture (or meaning of life?) Here’s something to think about, hope it helps or challenges you: – How about trying this: Take the next reasonable opportunity presented to you, and make it your mission to commit fully to that task. How long for? Where will that take you? Who knows – probably longer than you think and not where you expected. If/when something better comes along – take that opportunity and repeat. – Existentialism itself emphasizes the individuals ability to choose & act out of free will. – According to my boi Kierkegaard (aka a pioneer of Existential Philosophy); by forfeiting (stalling) your ability to act/make a decision, you’re giving up what it means to be an individual. You’re a sheep meow, waiting to be told what to do. – That doesn’t sound great, does it? – What if it turns out you took the “wrong” opportunity? Easy fix: If/when something better comes along – take that opportunity and repeat. – To summarize: a lot of anxiety comes not from the decision itself, but from delaying the decision. Use only the time needed to truly assess your options, and practice exercising your terrifying right to be an individual doomed to make choices and stand by the consequences.
