My Quest to be "Mr. Abs Franklin 2008"

AbsofsteelI just finished the HIIT/ABS workout.  Day 2.  In addition to doing the workout plan, I also played tennis the last two mornings.  I hope I haven't been overdoing it.  My body is a good sore, not overdoing-it sore.

The abs workout is tremendous.  My stomach muscles were really worked on this exercise.  Shawn Phillips is supposed to be "Mr. Abs USA" 2004 or something.  I can see why.  Maybe I can be "Mr. Abs Franklin" 2008!?

Anyway, since I already had my Base Camp, it really has been easier to continue eating healthy.  I remember doing Body For Life and really hating it the first week - probably because my body wasn't ready to start.  I was worn out after week 2.  This time, with SFL, I've been able to ease into the workout and eating part much easier.  In fact, it's almost easier to eat with the Transformation plan because I'm not cutting out as much. 

Vitamix5200We bought a new Vita-Mix blender at Costco the other day.  I really want to get some nutrition shakes/smoothies to drink/make right after my workouts.  Nothing would feel better!

Sorry I haven't written in a few days.  I was at Promise Keepers with my good friend, Bryson and a new friend, Lee.  I'll write about that next.

  1. Promise Keepers - Awesome! I hope you had a fantastic time and I can't wait to read about it. I did Body For Life when it first came out, wow it's a tough workout. I still incorporate many of the principles into my daily life. Fifteen pounds later though, I better get back on his or his brother's plan! Good luck in your quest to be Mr. Ab's that is hilarious, but if anyone could do it, it'd be you.
