11.27 Day 1 - Wk 1 - This is a personal blog, fitness program, journal/log/mini odyssey into the days (and nights) of my fitness... and all things that encompasses my mental and physical development throughout these 6 weeks of striating, eating, thinking, stressing, lifting, battles of constant contradictions... and the occasional mind-and body fuck created through a beautiful unified connection of mind to muscle harmony sought under the house of Gains.

I couldn't wait until I found a show date to begin my TRE program. January, 2018 is right around the corner, followed by the Los Angeles Fitness Expo just a few days later here... and it's here that every known social media fitness influencer, popular fitness brands, and fans from all over will be. This is the part of the lifestyle I enjoy... 1.) the business, and 2.) the personal connections and impacts made through good business. My end game is not to dance around on a stage seeking the criticism of men while wearing basically a bikini... but to make an impact in the industry itself, promoting the only version of life we should be living Natural.. and Official.

If you follow these blogs, then you will also come to realize that it' will not be easy. This is important to me because not only am I changing certain habits for a 6 week transformation, but I am removing ones that's been haunting my health for quite some time, and letting them go forever. Basically, practicing what I preach.

Blogs will be completed by Midnight each program day.

Monday, November 27th, 2018


The first Monday back to work after Thanksgiving... and surprisingly, no streams of guilt or nightmares of suicide runs to get any excess weight off. I was actually pretty accountable and generous with myself, way to go me.

This Morning I kicked the day off with about 60 ACE pushups once I arrived to work, and a few ab rollers using the "Perfect Ab Carver" Not really sure if it's doing much aside from my current routine, but I'm going to give it a lil more quality time and see how results will pan out. I didn't do a Park workout this morning or at lunch. Wet ground from the rain discouraged me. I view those sessions as a days bonus if I am able to do them, but they are not required.


Breakfast

Usually my breakfast would be a one serving of oatmeal (2 seen here for first 2 weeks)
as a side to 4 servings of egg whites and 3 serving of chicken breasts with cheese and pico.
During these Six weeks, the oatmeal will act as the main breakfast dish with fruit as a side.

The Workout

Tonight's workout was a bit of a Hail Mary. Didn't go to LA Fitness in Woodland Hills for my leg day with the girls, so I ended up at my gym (24hr Northridge) to knock out a random session, while saving energy for a possibly ridiculous leg day for tomorrow. Probably going to throw in some great compound routines as well.

Workout was GREAT! Had a nice sweat with the consistency and pace of each set w/ limited rest time. I arrive at the gym around 8pm, and the full workout took about 1 1/2 hours (While doing lunges, I shared the routine with a friend who in interested in that particular workout. He couldn't complete all sets, but for someone who has never performed this style of DB lunge, he held his own.

Time to EAT, and sleep, another day commences tomorrow!!!!
