I was thinking on the rest day that maybe I ought to do something, but in the end I’m glad I kept it to a rest day. Your body needs some time off. the Clinic’s rest days essentially meant No Strength Training. There was still plenty of cardio activity on Rest Days. Rest Day doesn’t […]
Up again, back over 440. Barely. Again, not surprised – ate a lot of bulky food and drank a lot of water. It’s Easter. Aside from eggs (uncolored), there’s no traditional Easter yummies in the house: no Peeps, no chocolate bunnies. Marie’s down sick; her stomach giving her serious trouble, much like I was last […]
So what do you do after a long week at work, with nothing planned for the day and more energy than you’ve felt in months? There’s a joke making the rounds on Pinterest. Something about “Who the hell runs five miles in thirty seconds?”
I tried to do five days of 1300 (ish) calories, but I know that light-headed feeling. I mentioned it in my morning update, and Michael pointed out that I should be in the 1600-1800 calorie range. I ended up around 1800 today. This was the first official “do two T25 workouts” day, but because I’d moved […]
Not a lot to say about Thursday. Woke up, ate what I said I was going to, did two T25 workouts in the pool. It was becoming apparent that 1300 calories wasn’t a whole lot for a 450 pound man, but I managed. As this was part of the Beach Body Challenge, I had been […]
Day 3: slept like a rock again. All that Shakeology energy just needed an outlet, and Focus T25 fit the bill. My eating patterns held. Under 1400 calories, fit in the Shakeology, I ignored the now-weeping pastry chef downstairs who had relied on my sweet tooth to put his kids through private school.
Remember all that buzz of energy I’d wake with, sooner than I wanted? After that first T25 session, I’d burned through it. I slept hard. Getting out of bed was not easy.
Shaun T, of Insanity fame, loves him some stompy, air-catching cardio. Maybe you’ve seen him. Looking like Will Smith, talking like someone you can only put up with at 3am when the infomercial blares at you after you’ve caught up with everything on the DVR. Leaping and jumping and skipping and punching and generally acting […]
[Note: links provided for information. I’m not selling anything. I’m a reviewer/tester by nature, so I like to document.] As I mentioned in my earlier post, I met Michael Friedman at the Clinic by Dr. H. He’d led me through my first workout there, and he is a good motivator. He’s been there himself – […]
One of my journeys is health. About a year ago, after one too many suggestions from my doctor about getting a lap-band for weight loss and other weight-related issues, I jumped on an opportunity to spend two weeks at the newly-launched Clinic by Dr. H. The H stands for Dr. Rob Huizenga.
