When I sent the email to Marc David asking for an interview I never anticipated what would happen next. First, it turns out that Marc is an incredibly nice guy who is extremely interested in helping out real people. He is not an ego maniac who likes his butt kissed. Next, after doing the interview, the level of accountability has been consistently increasing. Marc posted the podcaste on his http://www.bodybuildingsecretslive.com site and the day he did that, the hits on my site were 228, the most in a single day ever. Today he has upped the accountability level for me even more by posting the podcast at http://www.nobullbodybuilding.com/expertseries/callpage.html. Check it out…he even posted a headshot of me. Thanks, Marc, with your help, I am even more accountable now than I was before. That's why I started this blog and you've helped me alot with this. Between Adam posting our stuff on YouTube and then this podcast interview, I know I'm getting alot of people reading my stuff and looking for results.
I got in a double Max-OT cardio session today. I did the first one and then did my FYA workout followed by a second Max-OT cardio session. I felt the burn for hours afterwards. It was an awesome feeling.
Food today was PERFECT. I cooked up a bunch of chicken breasts yesterday and chopped up a bunch of veggies to take with me to work. Now, I've managed to hit my nutritional marks consistently for weeks now, but today was just extremely easy because of the advanced preparation. It was another BFFM day for me and it felt good. I will be lifting tomorrow and have a feeling I'm going to feel very strong. The addition of carbs back into my diet feels good so far. I've learned alot about eating the past 2 months, that's for sure.
This was an interesting day in some respects. I was pretty focused on my work and getting the right things done. I spent some time discussing long range plans and found that because of all the planning I do on my nutrition and exercise, the planning at work was even easier. It is second nature for me now and that feels really good.
As far as accountability, this blog was started with that entire concept in mind. I failed at it once (you can still see the old posts), but with the help of Adam Waters and the rest of the Shredder Council I've managed to keep it going for 95 straight days now. I have five (5) more days left in this first mission and I'm going straight into Mission 2 with no break. I will have a little surprise for Day 100 that is really nothing special, just something fun.
I am planning my next article and will post it here soon. The only way I could think of to follow up my last podcast was to go with a video podcast, so that's what I will be doing this week.
