After two weeks of "active" rest I am starting my second challenge today. I gained 4 pounds by doing nothing and being lazy for a couple weeks and now it is back to the drawing board. New challenge and new goals. I am going to take my before picture tonight. I am going to miss the guest book but I think this will be a better tool to help those in need and cut down on social chatter that drowns out real people with real questions. I am going to use this "My Transformations" to post updates and keep in touch with community. It is hard to do this alone.
“"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out..." - Robert J. Collier”
I agree, it is hard to do this alone and I hope there will be people answering real questions rather than just posting in certain forums as a social chatter.
How do you look after your ar? I know you gained 4 pounds but do you look "softer" or is the definition still there?
I am softer but I don't think it will take long to recover and move beyond what I achieved the last challenge. On a plus side I don't have to buy new jeans for a while.
We're in this together! Today is also my C2W1D1. :] Are you on BFLSpirit/BFLTracker/T.com?
Yes I am on t.com as bclevi
Awesome. I'm on there (and also on BFLSpirit and BFLTracker as Treb). :]
Just took a look at your pics! Impressive, man! Keep up the hard work! We'll make it through C2 together!
What is BFLSpirit/BFLTracker/T.com? I tried going there but didn't come up. Was there a typo in there somewhere?
I know "T.com" is transformation.com, not sure about others
www.bflspirit.com is one site and www.bodyforlife-tracker.com is another site. I believe those are the correct addresses.
(Update) Since I cut out the cardio I am actually gaining muscle! So C2 will be 6 weeks bulking and then 6 weeks cutting. (In bodybuilding terms) C1 I lost 2.5 lbs of muscle. Trying to get back to the lean body mass I had when I was my most overweight.
I am doing an 18 Week Challenge using BFL and Transformation with my fiance.

I picked out a Halloween Costume that will help me stick to my goal
Yesterday was a tough one. I almost gave up. I was out of town July 2-6. I went for a jog the first day of vacation and I ate well, even on Sunday my free day. On my drive home from South Padre Island I got a call from my roommate asking if I was home because our front door was open. He called back a few mins later and told me that someone had broken in an some things were stolen. His amp, effects pedal, and MacBook plus my Guitar and Bass Guitar.This was about 4pm and I did not get home till 10pm. We called the police and filed a report. I was up late and over slept yesterday morning. Running late and with no food at the office I ate breakfast from McDonalds. At lunch I was starving but managed to go to the grocery store and get the usual healthy food. I updated my workout tracker and calendar. I was determined to get back to working out. I ate a small snack around 5pm. When I got home around 7pm my fiance didn't want to go to the gym and just wanted to rent a movie. We talked for an hour and I upset her with something I said. At this point I was starving and working out was not an option. We stopped at Arbys on the way to the movie rental place. I got two Beef and Cheddar sandwiches and a Strawberry Banana Split Shake. I told her I feel like giving up. I don't like to go over a week without a workout. When we got to the movie place we decided it was too late to watch a movie. We went to bed so we could get to the gym at 5am to run. I got up around 5 and tried to wake her. 5:15 came around and I said if we dont leave in 5 minute we won't have time to run. She asked if I am getting up. I told her I give up.I got to work and noticed my cousin had posted some pictures from the reunion on facebook. There was one of me and my brother on the beach together. It re-inspired me to stay on course. (The date stamp is wrong)It reminded me of a picture taken in March 2007.
Bryan: I am sorry you are going through this today - it sounds like a lot of many issues. I know you have the strength to deal with each one individually in good time. I also believe you will do the right thing when it comes to YOU.
Power out those next few workouts Bryan - be extreme and let the positive energy from them carry you through what you need to deal with at home.
Believe - Decide - Achieve
and a few hugs too. :)
