Well these weeks have literally flown by.
It’s all about perspective!
“All you can handle, Bro!”
The workouts have remained fairly consistent and the eating has remained steady as well.
The one new aspect which my wife is amazing at, but I tend to struggle with is a cleanse.
She has started her 6 day cleanse and she will crush it.
I am stumbling into my cleanse by under preparing and not making it a priority. I bought smoothie products to blend only to have to leave the house at 7:30am this morning and by the time I left my son had just woken up. At the end of the day, its a bunch of excuses and I will buckle down today.
Let’s do this!
I’ll keep you posted as to how things proceed.

Week 2 recap – Journey back to health
Pic from the past – Back in 2011 when I was near my leanest and in top shape!
The past week has been a tough week. As in life, things at work or at home arent always copacetic and this week had a bit of resistance in all those areas. This naturally affected my workouts and at the end of the day, my eating.
Mind you, I stayed quite diligent in eating reasonably well, such as a quest bar as a snack or bringing a banana to work in addition to a snack as I knew I would be hungry. I find myself a bit hungrier on the mornings I hit the gym.
The good news is, even with some later dinners and additional days with caloric intake near 2,200 total, I still managed only 1 Lenny & Larrys Protein cookie and was able to drink a solid amount of water. At least 64 ounces per day if not closer to 100. My goal for week 5 and thereafter is 128 ounces per day.
The best part of the chaos is being able to focus and hit the gym again. Those mornings at the gym are wonderful and I leave there feeling like I got some good work in.
I’m looking forward to week 3 and surprising my wife in Clewiston, FL as she runs her first 50 mile race at the Skydive Ultra! Can’t wait to see the look on her face when she see’s my sister, brother-in-law and myself cheering her on!
