Default Day 3 24.12.2013

Today was an off day. I twiddled my thumbs for most of the day to pass time. I eventually left work at 12pm and got some last minute shopping in.

I took my wife out for dinner as her birthday is on Christmas day. I finally got the kids off to bed and had some free time from 9pm onwards. For the rest of the evening good ol Santa wrapped everyone's presents.

Default Day 4 Workout 3/25 Week 1 25.12.2013

I got to bed around 2pm the night before...at 5am my daughter was awake wanting to know if Santa had come.

I managed to put her back to bed and finally get out of bed at 7:30am to open presents. We spent the morning opening presents and watching the kids enjoy their gifts.

I got stuck into my workout shortly after 10am to get it out the way and finished off with a 4 minute metabolic miracle.

Workout # 3: The 4-Minute Total Body Miracle

1A 1-Minute Burpee
1B 1-Minute Close-Grip Pushup (max reps)
1C 1-Minute Punisher Prisoner Squat
1D 1-Minute X-Body Mountain Climbers (max reps)


These workouts are kicking my butt in the Summer heat.

Thanks Craig...that program is a lot tougher than it looks, especially using it as a finisher.

Default Day 6 27.12.2013

Today is my off day...I had to go for an eye test as I feel my eyes have been getting worse been a draftsmans.

Apparently I still have 20/20 vision...I could still read all the letters. The smaller ones were a bit of a battle but I could still read them. It's my short sighted vision that needs some help, they have prescribed a stronger strength, but not by much. Its really to help relieve my eyes because I look at a computer screen all day.

I have also been suffering with dry eyes later...extremely painful when I try open my eyes in the morning upon waking. I got some good eye drops for that now.

I am feeling really pumped about this transformation I have planned for myself over the next few months.

I am loving the workout with the kettlebells...its tough but enjoyable.

Default Day 7 28.12.2013

Saturday...up at the crack of dawn. I had a heap of washing to do.

I forgot to mention that I had to buy myself a whole new wardrobe of clothing as nothing fitted me anymore. My pants were falling off me and uncomfortable to wear. A lot of my clothing looked like I was swimming in it.

For placing in the top 3 in the under 40s 18th transformation contest I spent large on casual and work clothing. I have never been a guy for slim fit clothing but am really enjoying the fitting look of them on my frame body.

I decided to spoil my son too...I kitted him out with a whole new range of summer clothing. The little guy deserved it.

I am really looking forward to tomorrows workout...its gonna be about 42*C here tomorrow. I will try get my workout in at around 9am to try beat the heat.

Nice, new wardrobe - most common side effect of TT Training.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks Craig...it's a very positive effect from TT training too. I must say that I am enjoying the lean look I have now .
