Progress pics day 15. Weight 271. I only lost another .6 pounds this week, but I have to trust in the process. I am still working hard and eating clean. Anyone have any thoughts on the slow weight loss? Either way, I think the progress pics look pretty good for only 2 weeks.

Randall,

You're the person who introduced me to the music by Dead Prez. I wanted to thank you and let you know I met them last night and kicked it with Stic Man for a brief while backstage after the show.

Awesome to see them live and talk about a lot of progressive stuff. Stic even performed Back On My Regimen and talked about being clean and sober and his commitment to health and fitness. It was pretty awesome!

Just wanted to say thanks! It was an honor to meet Stic last night!

Hey Robert, glad to hear it. That sounds awesome.


Anyway, back to my log.

I've decided that I can't afford to keep having Vega twice a day. I am changing it up a bit.

My breakfast today and for the foreseeable future is

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 scoop true protein custom mix
cinnamon
2 packets stevia

Doesn't taste great but it gets the job done.

Gotta plan ahead if you want results!

Sadly that is only enough for 3 days!

The Kris Gethin plan is awesome. I was doing it earlier this year and it was awesome. Sadly I fell off at week 9-10 and never got back on track until now.

Keep up the great work dude!

Today was another rest day, 40 mins of cardio. I also rolled a bit (jiu jitsu) last night and this morning. I now have a bruised rib that hurts quite a bit haha.
