Fatloss In Maui, Day 1

Now for something completely different: Me doing video blogs from Maui, Hawaii.

This year Hanna and I decided to head to Maui with a group of 10 other friends. This is part business, part pleasure… well, all pleasure if you consider the digs and the environment, weather, food… yeah. It’s pleasure. : )

Here’s a pic of where we’re staying: The Grand Wailea…

I know… it doesn’t suck.

Here’s the first of many daily videos coming up on how I plan to lose body fat while on vacation… in Maui… for two weeks… and with 10 crazy friends. Quite the task, eh? Will my Every Other Day Diet Plan actually allow me to enjoy Maui to the fullest while still losing body fat? Let’s see… live. : )

Oh, fyi: I have spent the last 3 months out of the gym as I healed up a ruptured bicep tendon (ouch). This was a repetitive stress injury that I blame myself for, as I should have known that increasing weight on hammer curls as quickly as I was (from 30s for 10 to 65s for 8 in a matter of 8 weeks) was too hard on my tendons. Lesson learned. Since my legs are already very well-developed and grow quickly, and also partly due to the fact I was pretty bummed out over the injury, I took the entire time off.

I didn’t eat that great either. A move and a new company on top of this injury put me a bit off my game, at least for the first 2 months of dealing with it all. My body fat crept up to 12%; even higher prior to remembering to follow my own good advice! (ha) Doesn’t sound like much, but that’s double my normal body fat of 6%, give or take a percent.

Here’s my goals… see for yourself what can be done as I do it live.

NOTE: Each of these videos will be short and recorded on an iPhone, so they’re as scruffy as I intend to be for the next few weeks…

Aloha!
