Day 1 – Birthday – 6 week PBE cycle

Today is my birthday!  And today is the day I start a 6 week Power Burger Eater cycle.  Will be updating with morning weigh-ins, nutrition, and fitness notes along the way so you can follow my journey.  Goal set at 170 lbs by September 15th, with a more aggressive goal of 165 lbs by September 15th.

Morning weigh-in: 177 lbs  An aggressive birthday weekend celebrating with the boys.  Lots of food, drinks and fun and the scale is showing it.

Fitness:  Foundation One workout routine through Gymnastic Bodies.  This workout routine is not for bigness or for sliming down, it’s a 20 min workout regimen done 4 days a week (M, T, Th, F).  “Deceptively simple in appearance, Foundation makes you bulletproof from every angle.”  Mix in some HiIT, weightlifting, ab exercises, and mobility work to keep my sanity in between all these bodyweight workouts

Nutrition: Cut out wheat!  Eat lots of protein (30g per meal) and stuff veggies into meals where I can.  Cut out carbs in the morning, reduced carbs at lunch, eat carbs after evening workout (fruit or sweet potatoes).  Aiming for 90% success, with occassional cheat meals and nights out at the bar.

Shut the Front Door!

Kacy Catanzaro kills the American Ninja Warrior competition.  The first woman to make it through the course that most men can’t make it through.  Does being strong make her look like a man??  NOPE…. check out this beauty rock the competition.   And listen to the great play by play / color commentating through out the video, especially at 6:25min mark.

Six Sigma California

 

Six Sigma is a set of techniques and tools for process improvement.  Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. – Wikipedia.  That is pretty much what this Six Californias Initiative is all about.  Improving the process of local government by removing the main cause of defects (one central government for the most populus and diverse state in the union).  You may hear about this soon if you haven’t already, it looks like this initative might make it to the ballot this year.  The movement is led by Timothy Draper, tech industry investor… I’ve never heard of him either, but he must be good at betting on start-up companies and making stupid amounts of buku cash.
