Along with my Cape Cod vacation, I also took a full week off of working out in fitness. You gotta have those once in a while. At least a full week off of fitness for at least once or twice a year. Some bodybuilders workout a full year with no breaks, but honestly, it’s not really good for you. The reason is, you don’t want to burn yourself out. You need to find more time to rest & heel. Recharge yourself and start over again.
Don’t worry. A full week with no exercise at all, you will NOT lose muscle mass in a week. Just by continuing to eat good nutrition and keeping your protein going, you will get much stronger and get more muscle mass. I have gotten a little more with my week off of fitness. On top of that. I just needed a break from exercise. Get away from it for a while, but I continued to eat healthy food and eat proteins. Of course, when you’re on vacation, there’s always a time where you get forced to eat bad nutrition and it had happened a few times. I don’t mind. Doing all that walking in Cape Cod helps burn it off anyway.
For shopping, I didn’t buy too much. Just a couple of music CD’s: Weird Al’s new album “Alpocalypse” and “The Book of Mormon – Broadway Musical” (Comedy created by the guys from “South Park”). I picked up Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol” hardcover book at a Used Bookstore that costed me only 5 bucks. I also picked up a Korg Metronome MA-30 from a musicians shop called, “The Drummer’s Store”. I needed a metronome so I finally bought one. I plan to play guitar with a metronome from this point on, so I can play better in time.
The video footage that will be coming. I visited President John F. Kennedy’s hometown of Hyannis, Mass. where he lived and grew up. I’ll have the video tomorrow. Didn’t feel like messing with it today.
Edit to add: Btw, the weather was shit in Mass most of the time. Mostly clouds and rain. I would have went swimming in the ocean if there was sunshine, but there wasn’t sunshine at all in Cape Cod.
