Three days to go and I'm pumped to get into the next mission. I will post my Mission 2 goals on February 4, 2008. I have some big plans this time around.
Today I got up at 3 a.m. and hit the gym at 4:00 a.m. I did my Max-OT cardio (16 minutes and I went 1.77 miles–a new record). I then did my FYA workout (see this here).
Mike Groom is a fellow shredder and a major source of inspiration for me. He recently completed his first 84 day mission and did an awesome job. He finished his first mission on Aussie Day. Well, I always say that Mike and I have alot in common and then I realized “Hey, my mission ends on February 3 and that's…SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!” So, Mike, while Super Bowl Sunday might not be a major holiday, it is definitely a huge day here in the United States and I'm proud that my first Mission will end on that day.
Today was a high carb and maintenance calorie day. It was very hard to hit my mark, but I did it with a little bit of planning and alot of effort. When I hit the bulking phase I'm going to have to get creative in order to up those calories to a level that will build muscle. For now, I'm content to shred the fat from my frame.
It seems that alot of people were moved by my Mission 1, Day 96: Action and not excuses post. If you think about it, we all have the choice to take action, some of us just choose not to. I have gone through various phases in my fitness journey and they all involve periods of not taking action. This time has worked because I've taken massive action and I'm expecting massive results. My advice is to take your time. Great results don't come overnight. It all requires work. From making the right decisions to taking massive action, it is hard work that will result in some great results in the end. Anything worth having is worth working hard for. Take your time and do your homework. The results you want will come.
