My energy has gone up with the tightening of the diet. Nothing crazy either... just cutting back on my cheating.

Sabrina is doing great, too. She is down 2 pounds (but she looks leaner than that - she promised she wouldn't judge by the scale either).

We're cruisin'! Thanks for checking in!

Looking forward to your insights on taking your fitness and energy to the next level.
Thanks Catherine! I'm already feeling better just cutting back on my cheats

Nice job, Mikey! I've been struggling with my diet myself and have just finally righted the ship. Thanks for providing a little more motivation to keep it going!

I have to say... I'm pretty pumped today.

I don't gauge my success by the scale, but instead I gauge it on how I feel and how I look.

I've been feeling lighter going up and down the basketball court when I play. And when I press either one of my boys up in the air, it's been easier. I can "Snatch" Champ and Deakan with ease

This morning, after stepping on the scale, I realized I have lost about 9 pounds.

More importantly, I simply "feel" healthier.

I'm going to keep it going,
Mikey

Well done Mikey!

I just picked up bootcamp games via your link. I'm looking forward to receiving finisher games. I'm going start up some group training soon and will be plugging those suckers in.

That's awesome Peter! That was a fun program to put together. Let me know how it goes.

And if you don't get your Finisher Games within 24 hours, let me know!
Mike

Thanks mate but I've got it. Haven't looked at it yet but I'm sure it will be great. I'll let you know when I start using it.

It was the first Super Bowl with me NOT doing something I've been doing for years.

In the past, I would go "all-out" on Super Bowl Sunday... we're talking chips and dips, wings, sausage balls, chips/salsa and more... all BEFORE the "main dish". The main dish would be usually something like pizza.

Then it was a variety of 2-3 desserts that I would pile onto my plate.

12,000 calories later, I would finally stop eating.

But NOT this year.

Sure, I enjoyed my planned reward meal and dessert (steak fajita/cheese with a brownie).

But because we didn't go out and buy all those chips, dip, etc, I didn't pile on my usual 12k calories.

"Just because it's the Super Bowl, doesn't mean I go all out. Sure, I can eat my normal planned reward meal, but let's skip all the nonsense before and after. What I'm doing is working, so I need to stick with it." I said to my wife. She happily agreed (of course, she wouldn't cheat nearly as hard as I would - ha!).

And for the first time in years, I went to bed without feeling overly stuffed and miserable after a Super Bowl.

It looks like the Seahawks weren't the only one to get a win last night.

Cruise control,
Mikey
