Hey guys!
So yesterday was crazy.
We had tornados, earthquakes, and flooding all at once.

Got to love Oklahoma, right?

Anyway, today was pretty freaking awesome.
Firstly, I got MW3 tonight and I have played SP some and I’m playing MP this weekend, totally freaking awesome game.
Plus workout was awesome tonight, that always makes the day better.
This morning for my workout I went back to my old gym to workout which was awesome because I got to see all the guys and none of them have seen me since I started on my weight loss journey, so they were pretty stoked to see what I looked like. Although they didn’t all recognize me at first, haha.
I did just some of my own stuff for the most part, some CEKB WOD, some Crossfit WOD, and cardio, and I also did a Scott Herman ab workout.
Just so you guys know, Scott Herman is pretty freaking awesome in my book, I don’t care what you say.
Check out the video and tell me your abs don’t hurt from watching this stuff.

Alright, now that that’s taken care of, on to the update!
So I got on the scale this morning and what do I see?
192! that means I lost 3lbs over the 11 days of the spartan challenge!
That’s really exciting, and it makes me really want to work on keeping my diet really clean like I did during that 11 days.

I did pictures and measurements.
I’m really to lazy for measurements right now, some cool stuff there but nothing to blow you away until I post them next to my starting numbers.
I did decided to throw together a timeline picture for you guys to check out to show the points I did picture for progress measurements, check it out!

Let me guys know what you think!
The only thing I will ask of everyone, if you are going to make a negative comment, grow up and don’t even bother, no one needs that crap, not me or anyone who is reading this blog, either get over yourself or get off your ass and go workout, depending on which needs to be done.

Anyway, that’s all I have for tonight guys, I’m gonna go play MW3 a little more before getting ready for bed.
I love to hear from you all so be sure to comment!

Hey guys, just a quick post tonight.
I finished up my spartan challenge this morning, during the 11 days I hage big strength increases and I see some body comp. differences too!

I’m just gonna make it easy and post the video for you all, here in Oklahoma we are having flooding, an earthquake, and a tornado watch so it’s crazy out here right now.

Keep checking in to make sure I survive, haha.

Just a quick post tonight guys.
I made a video to introduce myself on youtube today, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone on this one but it will help me grow!

A little update about some food stuffs as well,
I’m going to try to get a new recipe up this weekend, sorry I haven’t in awhile, just been busy so I wasn’t cooking anything new.

Oh, just a heads up, I will most likely be doing some supplement reviews here soon, so keep an eye out.

Let me ask you something.

Do you or someone you know want to lose 5, 10, 15, even 20 pounds before Christmas?
Do you or someone you know want to be healthier, and more fit in order to enjoy more time with family and friends?
I mean, let’s face it, who DOESN”T want to be healthy and fit, most people let excuses get in the way of it is the problem.

You know what I say to that?
WHY WAIT?!?!?!
This is the Best time to start on a journey to get healthy and fit, lose some weight, have more energy, feel better, and look better.
On 11/11/11 I’m starting a 30 day Shakeology Challenge group with FIVE people ONLY, this way we can work together to stay motivated and accountable.
The only rule is that you replace one meal a day with Shakeology, and workout atleast 3 day’s a week. It doesn’t matter what your workout is, it doesn’t have to be a beachbody program (Although it is one fantastic way to do it), it just matters that you get up and MOVE.
Plus, not only will you have chances to win CASH prizes with the Beachbody Challenge (Up to $100,000) and WOWY ($500 a day, just for working out), at the end of my 30-day shallenge I will be awarding prizes!

Like I said, now is the BEST time to get healthy and fit, so stop putting it off and change your life.
If you are interested in joining me for the challenge, leave a comment, Email (Tg.fullbright@sbcglobal.net) , or contact me on Facebook.

Today has been a fantastic day so far, and I don’t see that changing as long as a I have a big ‘ol pot of this stuff around.
It’s a nice chilly, rainy day here in Oklahoma, perfect for something hearty to fill up my dutch oven with.

While I was trying to figure out what to do, I did some yoga (P90X one on one; fountain of youth) to relax and stretch, lord knows I needed it because I felt like a new man when I was done, and I knew I was gonna have fun cooking this up.

So here we go!

Ingredients:

2 pound chuck roast, cut to bite size pieces. (about 1 inch)
1 pound beef bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces. (Or nitrate free pork bacon)
1 pat butter
2 medium onions, roughly chopped.
10 small sweet peppers, roughly chopped
7 cloves of Garlic, roughly chopped.
1 6oz can of tomato paste.
1 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes.
2 cups beef stock.
2 cups water.
1/2 – whole 80%+ dark chocolate bar. (depends on your taste, I used half)
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper.
1 tablespoon Chipotle powder.
1 tablespoon Smoked paprika.
2 teaspoons ground turmeric.
2 teaspoons ground cumin.
1 tablespoon dried oregano.
1 Juice of Lemon.
1-2 tablespoons flax meal (Optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Place butter in dutch oven over medium heat and melt.
Once melted place bacon in pot and cook to render out fat, about 10 minutes
Remove bacon while leaving fat and place to the side, pour fat into cup leaving about a tablespoon of it in the pot, increase heat to medium-high, then throw in meat to brown in two batches, browning about 5 minutes per batch, remove and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium and Toss in onion, peppers, and garlic adding more bacon fat if needed and brown for about 7-10 minutes. return bacon and roast to the put, stir together, add tomato paste and diced tomatoes, stir together and cook for 5 minutes.
Pour in stock and water, add all seasonings, and bring to a boil, then add the chocolate (Best to break up the chocolate first) and stir in, reducing heat to low, partially cover and simmer for two hours.
**Optional
If you like a thicker chilli like me, stir in the flax meal to thicken and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.**
Add juice of lemon and serve.

Top with whatever you like, I enjoy some chopped green onion, mexican crema and a little shredded cheese.


I would love to hear what all of you think!
Enjoy!

So I missed posting yesterday, by the time I got home for the night and worked out it was 10 and I was wiped.
I did get to do a little clothes shopping yesterday, it always feels good buying new clothes because you don’t have any that fit you any more. Well, as long as they don’t fit you because they are to big, haha. =D

Anyway, today I had a long day at school, but I take solace in the fact I only have two weeks left!
I’m looking forward to getting done sooooo much.

I did do a workout yesterday even though it should be a rest day.
I know I will be resting monday so I figured I would switch the day’s up.
The workout would of been Asylum’s back to core, but I wasn’t feeling that, so I made my own and it was a blast.Descending pyramid 5-1 pull-up, chin-ups, cardio dumbbell lvl1 20lbs, and 10-5 diamond jumps followed by 15,10,5 kettle bell swing and 5-3-2 push-up jack burpee’s.
Try it, it’s tougher then it sounds.

Today would of been asylums speed and agility, but again I wasn’t feeling it.
I did P90x Ab ripperX followed by Insanity’s fast and furious, now that felt good.
Something I have learned over the last few months if listen to your body, do what you are feeling, and don’t feel guilty about it.
If you are following a program and you don’t feel the workout that day but you are digging a run, or maybe a swim, go for what you are feeling, your body will thank you.
Also, if you are feeling totally run down and drug out, REST. You body needs it, and it will thank you for it the next day when you can go all out again.

Anyway, dinner tonight was INCREDIBLE!
I made a arugula salad with a homemade spicy ranch, beet casserole, and an organic, grass fed, dry aged rib eye steak (Local from holder brother beef) drizzled with a garlic white wine sauce. I’m so full now, but it was worth it. Oh so worth it.
It’s super easy to make, so if you want me to post the recipe for any of it, leave me a comment. ;]
Here’s a picture for all you foodoaphile’s, don’t get to close to your computer, you wouldn’t want to short anything out from the drool coming out of your mouth;]

Feel free to leave any comments guys, I would love to hear what you have to say.
Keep digging deep,
-Trevor.
