So, everything hurts and I'm so very, very tired.. but still better every day

Never, ever in my life have I adhered this strongly to a smart eating regime. Never in my life have I been this dedicated to a single physical goal that has precluded my near-pathological need to eat garbage food late at night like some sort of jackal who doesn’t know any better, and never in my life have I felt this good about my body.

I find myself in a very unique position because very few people in the world can channel their passion into greatness, and I am fortunate in that I have the knowledge, the skill set and the weightlifting base to survive a dramatic uptick in the amount I’m lifting.

In addition, the summer and the extra work I put in preparation for my quad surgery has also borne fruit.

Of course, this optimism must be muted by the fact that it’s only day 3 of this little adventure, but I think there was an important step: I survived the weekend, and that’s pretty exciting. My bug has always been a problem with emotional overeating and that usually happens when I’m stressed out or merely bored and hanging around the house.

Well, it was another huge day with an hour and a half in the weight room doing chest and triceps development exercises in addition to the 200 pushups I did at home after while watching football while I had three decent sized meals of broccoli and chicken, asparagus and chicken and a third meal of spinach and chicken. Always three cups of greens and one cup of proteins, along with a small handful of almonds and with the dogs getting a long walk at night before bed.

It’s been super easy and in no way difficult to maintain high energy and proper function,. In fact, I have as much energy as I can remember having in a long, long time.

I have a friend who told me that if I keep posting about my journey – and especially if I keep posting shirtless pictures (perv!) – maybe she, too would be inspired to join in and work out a bit more regularly. I told her – absolutely! Not only would I post more shirtless photos, but I would also tell her about a class I hold every Friday afternoon in Kirkland. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a high-energy resistance cardio class that will jack your metabolic rates through the roof!

OK, OK. I know. It sounds like a plug.

That’s cause it is!

But it’s a great class, and lots of fun.

Sometimes we trip and fall. Sometimes we feel the world falling down around us and we feel powerless to stop it. And the only way to heal is through absolute honesty. Truth must be told and the light
