I like this thread. Off the top of my head...

take a week or two off training, maybe a mini vacation or full one

Relax more with the training

eat more calories in general following Chris Acteos post contest tips

Keep focusing on my business (and I won't be as tied down with all of this as Ill not be in contest preparation, Ill still keep bodybuilding of course)

focus on the body parts I have to bring up to improve

keep taking care of my body via physical therapy and maybe deep tissue work(currently getting deep tissue work once per week starting next week until my Nov 6th competition)

man around the corner from me is a place with the best burgers. they use a whole damper roll for the burger and if you get a steak/chicken burger with the works, the whole thing weighs about 2lbs
lettuce, pineapple, beetroot, cheese, bacon, egg, onion, plus chicken breast or 2 steaks on it

But after THAT show...

- Quit weighing food religiously
- Eat more than 20g of oats at breakfast

Haha man I'm so down for that too. It's not the type of foods thats killing me...its the lack of being able to eat bulk amounts of them! I need to go buy 10 jars of pb, and a big ass fukin mixing bowl :p

pig out then look at my physique next morning and go into a state of depression/followed by more comfort food eating, then decide its time to bulk, followed by extreme self consciousness and on and off depression for 2weeks after about my weight gain.....-story of my life for past month or so.

OMG HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

STORY OF MY LIFE FOR THE PAST 4 WEEKS !!!!!!!!!!!!

I honest to God have spent hours upon hours weighing the benefits to either cutting or bulking this fall. I would get headaches from analyzing the situation for so long. Should I cut again ? If so is my metabolism back upto par? Will it effect school work? Should I take caffeine to supplement energy? But caffeine might give me jitters. But I read a story online that caffeine hidners memory performence. I also read another story caffeine helps concentration and energy levels.

If I bulked, I'll be looking poofy, but Ill be full, but do I want the poofy look? Why cant I bulk tilll Jan then cut then. If I bulk now without cutting off this fat gained it might make the cut even harder in the spring...... I might even loose the muscle gained due to dieting so hard becuase of my post contest fat gain.

Seriously, for every arrangement I have I have like 10 counter arguments, all running thru my head and all of them constantly changing by the minutes.

I gained back weight steadily, not the best but Im back to my bulking weight but looking a hella lot leaner but I LOVED the lean lean look.

-right after my show's finals I'll go to Red Robin and get a cheeseburger with unlimited fries ALL dipped in ketchup, honey mustard and mayo....yea I said mayo its good stuff try it!

-the next day I'm going to All you can eat sushi and not care about calories and macros and just eat. The whole week I will eat my favorite foods and hit up the buffet and cold stone a few times.

-I'm taking a week off training before I start a slow bulk that will be for a few years before I do teen nationals in 2013-2014.

- start eating a lot more food and focus on powerlifting exercises to develop more overall mass.

I was thinking this one too....

I will also sort through my tupperware collection and get rid of some of them.

OOOhhh I'm a little late but I made it!

-Take a solo roadtrip to visit all of my friends New Orleans, up to Georgia, and finishing with North Carolina.
-Bake, bake, bake
-Get my sommelier certification
-Start my website and start selling 8x10's (apparently there is a demand...weird)
-Take my dog to the park more, it's a long drive to the river and my boy likes to swim.
-Try dating again...maybe
-Reconnect with all my girlfriends that haven't been able to see me out, and go dancing
-I'm thinking Vegas too.

After the show I will probably cry my eyes out ( in a proud kind of way)

and than scarf down the biggest, fattest, most delicious fresh baked chocolate walnut brownie I have ever seen in my entire beautiful life.

After I've scarfed down the brownie, I plan on baking a million and one different cakes..and probably having a bake sale due to the fact that I will be so sick from eating everything.

Dear god I'm sooo ready for this wonderful amazing and delicious experience that awaits me.

be able to go out to a mall, and order something from the food court

sleep in until 7:00am and eat a sugary cereal in the car ride to work instead of at 3:30am to get to the gym for morning cardio and make my eggs and oats....

enjoy going for drinks with my mom and her boyfriend on Sunday's at the Pony Coral in Winnipeg (when I move home) instead of ordering water and salmon bake with a side of veggies with no butter...

EAT EVERY DESSERT ON THE MENU ESPECIALLY THE CHEESECAKE... MMM BAKED EXPECTATIONS...
