My 8-Week Birthday Photo Shoot Challenge
I’m about to turn 42 years old, and I want to keep pushing myself to make fitness gains. It isn’t enough to maintain: For as long as you can grow, you should. To keep myself going, and to show how good my program is, I have designed a fitness challenge for myself using my INTEGRE8T Wellness program as the template.
Good morning. It is June 10, 2018. Today is the end of week number six and it’s time to check in and see how I’ve done.
Okay, so here we are at the end of Week 6, so let’s check things out. What I’d like to point out first is that this line has become crystal clear. It is there, no doubt about it. And interestingly enough, this one’s actually going to come out in time. I give that one or – I’ve got two weeks, and I think this one’s going to come out.
You know, last week I was saying I wasn’t sure if I’d get that lean, I think I will now. I’m pretty sure. Also, everything else is getting clearer and clearer, it’s really exciting how this is progressing along.
Let’s see. The pads here, you’ll notice, are pretty much gone. This fold is almost gone. The lines here are flattening out, I think that’s going to happen in time for the shoot. I think this will be gone. The pad here on the front is almost essentially flat. A little bit more, but with two weeks to go, I’m not really worried about it.
I can barely grab anything anymore. If you remember back to the first video, I could actually grab something and pull it down. Now I have to really dig in and move it and I don’t really even need to so that’s fine. And because this is flattening out, it’s accentuating the curve of my bootay better. So, all of this is happening.
In terms of the numbers, I’m just kind of ignoring them at this point, because I thought my goal was going to be 145lbs at 10% body fat. But these numbers just, I mean, they’re going up instead of down and yet I’m making visual progress. So, I think I’m going to keep documenting the numbers just to be consistent through the whole eight-week process, but really ultimately, I’m just not really worried about the numbers anymore. Everything’s strange with them anyway so, I mean, why bother. But anyway, yeah, I’m excited. This is going to be a good shoot so, booyah, booyah. Nice.
There are so many ways to be imbalanced. Often we think of that in a metaphorical way; however, I recently had a literal imbalance that fits in perfectly with my conceptual imbalances.
Effective supplements help to improve your athletic performance, and it is important to know which to use. Many products provide no proven benefits. Two exceptions are creatine and bet alanine.
So, now my latest dating blunder is affecting the day for three people — five, if you include his parents. This 30-something man-child literally told me to text his parents to find out what I should do with him; they actually didn’t do anything to help, so three is a better count.
