Almost one month update….sorry folks!

March 27, 2016

Sorry for not updating the blog as often as I’d like. First, since I’ve been using an iPad Pro, 13 inch model,the case that came with it is made by Logitech, the asthmatics of it is amazing, full defense against anything that could happen to the iPad. Only problem was that the keyboard sucked at getting all of my typing down, it was pretty much delayed by 1 second, which made blogging very tough. But now, with a new update finally coming along, it is pretty much like a laptop. Which leads me to think, will I still need a laptop to edit my 4K videos or can I still use my iMac desktop, OR just update my iMac once and use the one at home for work since the one at work kinda sucks now, it’s from 2008. In the mean time, time flies too fast, my weight kept fluctuating from 158 lbs to 162 lbs. My training and cardio regiment was on Par, I was training for an hour almost everyday and doing cardio for 35-45 minutes Daily, mostly after my workout. My diet was also in check, no carbs for 5 days, 1 high carb day and technically 1 low carb day since it was no carbs and a cheat meal. So in a way I was comfortable on where I’m at, not as much veggies, only fats and proteins, kinda like a struggle, only thing is I would be tempted to eat fruit from time and again which would slow me down too much. Right when I was thinking nothing can be done, I saw an Instagram post by a guy I follow, coolest dude, Sadick H. He is the perfect example of hard work, his diet, training regiment was very interesting to see. He is an IFBB Pro, Physique competitor and the way his body is sculpted is the way I want to look like, only thing is of course he was taller and had a faster metabolism where I was shorter and a bit wider; but like the away hard work beats talent. I reached out to him, got a diet plan and training regiment for 1 month, costed me double then what I usually pay with my other coach, but I was thinking why not, try something new and see where I go. I received the diet and workout plan the same day, after 3 days, my mind was blown. The diet was structured so differently than what I was used to from many years of dieting, I had low carb days, no carb days and 1 high carb day. I would be eating larger amounts of carbs and fats when needed to, it was questionable at first due to the fact that I was only consuming low amounts of fats and carbs in the old diet, but I was thinking I should start somewhere with a base line and with each week work my way up and have Sadick check out whatever he needs to check and make changes. 

So from day one, which was Tuesday, I had followed this diet specifically. Also the workouts as well which were totally different than what I was used to, most of it were super sets, one day was all core and abs and HIIT cardio, every workout does start with abs and core though. For the first time in a long time, after 2 days of strict dieting with the new diet and do how the workouts wants me to do it, my whole body felt sore. They say every morning listen to your body since when you wake up, your body is done healing and my body was screaming in aches, soreness and pain. I knew for sure that my body would need time to rest with proper dieting and enough sleep, sleep was the main thing needed in my busy work schedule! So on my non workout days I would be having no carbs, my workout days would be low carbs and on the days where I needed to actually workout hard, it would be high carb day which is usually once a week. I felt the difference with having some type of carbs before and after, especially how the high carb day is set up, no carb, then high carb then no carb again to repeat the pattern. It was an interesting kind of view. I can definitely tell a difference in my work outs, how the diet affects how I eat. I’m not totally starving throughout the day since the large amount of fats hold me over and the proteins stay the same. Hopefully by Tuesday I can get back down to 158 or maybe even cut it to 157 lbs! I just have to stay consistent and work hard at it, the problem that I have the most of is after work when I get home, if I cook eggs and eat them, I weigh a bit heavier in the mornings which is the best time for me to weigh my self. But if I eat a snack like protein chips or a quest bar, I still feel like I get a little heavier in the mornings. I can’t eat right before I sleep, it’s very tough, I have to time everything before I leave work or at least the car ride home which is 8 minutes away. Here are some progress shots, before I send them to Sadick:

   
    
 

I want to improve, I want to be better, you have to strive to get what you want, you have to adapt and change to get to your goals, or you just coast, be the same, never change and be monotone for the rest of your life. Think about it folks.
